Could we have some screens of the players spawns and weapon placement?

I think i can see whats going on, a kinda U shape lay-out yes?

I would say possibly some high ground to to the edges, and a little more cover as it looks a be bare through the bend.

Looks pretty btw.

Looks excellent, but I have a question. Is it possible to take your map, edit it and use it for single player campaign mode? The reason I ask this is because the game itself is too short and some of us either don't like multiplayer or don't want to play multiplayer because of the lack of dedicated servers.

Some one should make SP map play as locust vs CoG and make marcus as final boss lol:D

exacly. It is kind of a donut u shape. Il post some screens of the wire frames, For the high ground I am probably going to cut out the second floor of the houses, add some snipers maybe add a troika or 2 lol

This is a good thing. Until they get things sorted out with the bugs, and establish something better as far as multi player gaming (servers, windows live problems) I think many modders should focus on the single player aspect.

Sir****, your map looks like a tornado ran through it. So much destruction and dark feel to it. If this is the visual feel you were going for, I say to turn one or two cars on the side, hell turn one upside down if possible.

Also, do you know of websites or pdf books I can pick up that explain concepts like lighting, rendering, and pretty much anything associated with graphics?

Thanks for the suggestion i think that is a very good idea.

o man there is alot of nice resources for the editor. The disk that comes with unreal collectors edition has a tutorial, gasduck.com has some beginner stuff, http://www.veoh.com/series/HouseofUnreal has video tutorials on the editor

The part where there are those 3 cars in a row zig-zagging (Pic 3) and where it shows the player point of view, I believe you should try to add some kind of small pillar/monument/object in there to make it more interesting. Maybe a circle-shaped object so you can walk along side it the entire way. It will definitely prove to have some fun when a heated battle takes place there, you can possibly hide behind a car while your opponent is expecting you to come around the pillar/object and then bam, you are right behind him coming out of cover from behind the car.

Guys i dont know if im going to finish this map. I really like the designing aspect of the editor, but the Blocking volume and coverlink aspect really annoys me. If anyone wants to partner up il send u the file and you can touch it up. Map editing partnering could work real well. If anyone is interested e mail me dragonforce1080p@yahoo.com

See the way i look at it is i need an editor partner. Il make the designs and stuff, then the editor does the dirty work like adding needed meshes, cover links, blocking volumes and anything he sees fit.

I was excited about the map editor when it bearly came out and spent more than 24 hours building this map and learning at the same time. I have lost motivation for the time being so I am handing it to Alby13.

Take good care of my map :-D lol. You will have 100 % over the creative design.

just a few notes about it(dont need to follow but should be worth checking out)

Add and delete what you think is not right,
Also, You might want to resize some stuff because it looks good but in game its huge.
dont forget cover links and blocking volumes, and also static meshes to make it more detailed.

enjoy!.
