    Converting VCTF maps to DM maps...

    Can it be done?

    I'd love to play some of the VCTF maps as deatmatch... If you know how please let me know..

    Thanks,

    You could certainly re-use the meshes and feel of the maps, but a straight switch to DM? bad idea, a DM map isn't supposed to be symmetric and maps with vehicles in mind are much to large and open generally speaking.

      :-) Thanks for the fast reply.... Its for a lan next weekend we wanted to try it out for fun.. Even though its a bad idea.. in an ideal gaming situation.. Still can it be done easily? I'd still like to try it... "shrug"

        Should be easy enough, heard some had issues with cooked stuff but copying the file and re-naming it DM-* instead of VCTF-* and removing all vehicles, flags etc should work.

          If I can convert a vCTF map to Warfare I'm sure you can convert one to DM. Whether they're actually suited for that is another matter. I don't see any of them (all five) being any good, really. Containment and Kargo are too big and too boring. Sandstorm and Suspense have a rather significant divide down the middle. Corruption might work, but it's very open.

            sorry if im putting words in your mouth, but i think he might mean convert vCTF to vDM... like just freeforall/teams with vehicles.

            If you do want to take away all the vehicles and stuff, i would get used to walkin alot :P

                    VDM is exactly where I was going with my idea.. Thought it would be a blast... Which files do I change specifically to achieve this?? I'm a bit of a noob in respect of editing.. but am going through the vids to learn the use of the editer...

                      Got it!!

                      I got it!


                      Its awesome... Its simply a matter of moving two files in to the my documents game folder with the other custom maps and renaming them to DM. The two files are DM-Sandstorm_LOC_int.upk and DM-Sandstorm.ut3.... and off you go.. Only failing with it is that there is no hoverboard....


                      Still its great.
