Subject description: What did I miss?!
Reply with quote

Hey everyone, it's been awhile. Years have it? A lot has been happening in my life the past couple of years and there's much more to come. In a nut shell, I'm fully employed and will be soon training to become a business owner in the future, I'm now happily married, and I'm back to mapping... sorta!

It's more of a hobby kind of thing so I can't be a map factory like before, but it's still something that I enjoy doing every now and then. Firepower will probably not be continued if anyone had it on their minds. I don't have any of the files from the previous versions as they disappeared or are somewhere in a sea of CD's sitting in my closet.

What have I missed? Anyone want to fill me in on what I've been missing out on?

Ah, and here's a minimap of a map I've been tinkering around on:

Thanks for the welcome. I remember when FinalSun first debuted in wagnerma.de, and helping with ironing out some things, but I just liked to map.  Laughing

I suppose it's been long enough to finally see some progress in my maps so I would like to share a map overview pic of what I have sans triggers and finer details (units and such)

the lighting looks like ingame, but the missing tunnel top and missing auto-LAT made me first think this is from the map editor.
You should really fix the auto-LAT issues on the green and blue crystal ground and the grass LAT next to the river shore.

Other than that it looks nicely detailed.
Also, welcome back. Smile

Thanks, LKO. It's good to see that you're active in these forums. All the auto lat issues you see are from the C&C Map Renderer program. In the game itself it is all correct and proper.

It's good to be back.  Smile

Welcome back, it's always nice to see old members come by.

The glow, the wonderful glow. What sort of mission will it be?

Also, 6 obelisks on one entrance? Isn't that a little excessive? #Tongue

I can only say that you can never have enough obelisks.

Thanks for the comments, guys! The obelisks are intentional as I love to build bases with OP defenses. That and there is good reason for it! The map was completed as of a few days ago.

Here are some key things in this map:

1. There are 3 different ways that I designed into the map to take without taking on the front door.
2. You're very limited on tech for balancing and difficulty.
3. Your money sources are limited and will need to be watched/spent wisely.
4. Starting money sucks for reason ingame and balancing/difficulty.
5. Base building is limited in space. Build your structures wisely.
6. Nod has a tech advantage on this map so utilizing strategy will help turn the tide your way.

Play testing of the map was on Normal difficulty and it was pretty fun. The amount of money I had and was getting severely limited me on what to build. It forced me to use more infantry instead of building a swarm of titans. There are some gimmicks in the map that can catch you off guard so watch out for that!

Debating if I should make a campaign again or if I should just make a list of missions to play like Covert Operations. Going to keep the game original with minimal to no mods.

Update! Added some more detail to the map. Just doing trigger work for it now and then working on the AI. This map has been one that reminded me how I used to take forever to make large scale maps.  Laughing

Again, beautiful. Do you plan to release any of the stuff you've worked on above? The one map in-particular looks more or less complete.

Releasing is definitely in the works. The first two maps are done as far as triggers go, but I'm just not satisfied with my AI yet.  Face palm! Once I tweak it some I should have it out to the public.

I do have a baby on the way come time August so once the little one is born I will release everything I have out to everyone whether it's done or not.

It's definitely been fun so far seeing what my brain pours out into the blank canvas.  Very Happy

Yeah, the wonderfully infamous AI Triggers in mapping. I feel a little bit better about my map scripting knowing that even you struggle with it from time to time too. Razz In any case, I'll look forward to it, I've always enjoyed your work, would love to see more.

Congratulations by the way.

Looks good. Maybe you could vary a bit with the ramps in the middle island.
The lower part seems to be repetetive.

I always liked map specific AI. It allows for enemies to fully utilize the actual terrain of the map.
Enabling global AI always felt a bit lazy Razz

Yeah, I remember back in the Firepower days I would shun away from them and use random delay create team option for making computer attacks. That option was really nice if you wanted the AI to use different more than 2 teams to "flank" or create a diversion on one side while the other teams attack inside or from another side. Laughing

Thank you for the congratulations! I'm pretty excited to be a father. Smile

Ah, the terraforming aspect isn't done just yet. Just wanted to "fframe" the map with cliffs before I go into the nitty gritty details. Wink I always hated using Global AI. Never used it in Firepower and never will use it on any map I make.

And so the map slowly comes together... I'm kinda anticipating that this map will be frustrating to some when it comes time to play. I'll submit my 3 maps and get started on a few Nod maps before continuing this campaign once I finish this map.  Smile

Heyy guys, my daughter was born on August 6th, and since then I have had no time to work on the campaign. Instead of letting the files die with my disappearance I decided to put them into a folder and throw em out there for all of you to play or check out.

Maybe another day I'll pick it up again, but maybe not. In the mean time... here you go!
