    Re: Junglesource

    thanks john!

    I'd like everyone to post what they'd like to see change, the top 3 things please!

    my top 3 things are:
    1. Increase FPS in the T spawn if possible.
    2. complete the 3-d skybox.
    3. Change the rock material on the terrain so it looks more jungle like.

      best thing evar: the grass....i feel like im in friggin nam crawlin through the underbrush...its cool
      other two best things: the inner chamber (yay frame rate) and the tunnels everywhere...

      im still trying to figure out how to break up that middle part...i dont suppose making jungle "corridors"....ya know...big forest-like walls...the middle part wouldnt be open but the frame rates would be better.... im thinking something like rainbow 6

      I dunno...its the only thing i could think of...

        i hope there is another answer for the top area. (i like it open) Is there a way to limit view distance. Maybe add fog since its at the top of a hill in a rain forest.

        May be add more sounds. Seems that in a jugle, the animal sounds would be deafening.

        I think this map set at early early dawn or late eveing would really be intense.

        mabe make it darker in the tunnels

              I love that map. It just has a few kinks to work out:

              The hostages are getting stuck trying to go up the stairs in that underground chamber.

              The grass is hard to see through when you are in it but easy for people to see you who aren't. Maybe make the grass shorter or put more bushes out in that meadow.

              The rescue locations need to be more easily identifiable. I never did find out where the hostages in the huts are supposed to be rescued to but I would assume it was the spawn point.

              The buy zone for the CT's is too small. At one point I spawned outside of the buy zone.

              Thanks,

              Ghost

                ok couple fixes i've got covered:

                1)buyzones
                2)nav mesh for hostages (they won't have a problem getting up the ramp)
                3) Hostage rescue zone decals (temporarily)
                4)Grass is now static models instead of details that only render at a distance from teh viewer. Now they render for everyone.
                5)Terrorist spawn should have much better FPS. I thinned the models and turned the map into an Early Dawn time setting which is more accurate to the situation, which in turn means no super detailed shadow rendering for the trees.
                6)3-d skybox shouldn't have anymore viewable gaps.
                7) I put some clips up and smoothed the terrain for easier navigation and also keeping people from getting stuck.

                    Have to tell you, had a blast last night on this map...
                    Small things... Checkerboard trees around the hut...
                    Coming from CT spawn I was able to climb an outside edge wall and "walk on air for a little bit... could see the dam but couldn't get to it..

                    More to come if I can gather my thoughts and the time... ;-)

                      Good map, but I think it can be better.
                      In all honesty, it looks too cartoonish. If you need me to, I will be more than happy to help you make a few sprites to make it seem a bit more realistic.

                      I also got stuck behind the generator :P


                      Good map, and very good for a beta :)

                          Happy to...

                          Didn't think my rushed explanation while I was working would cut it... =:-|

                          Just have to figure out how to do screenshots... doh...
                          f10 right? ;-)
