Карта castle_m
Описание отсутствуетPhase: Finished (?). Need a real playtest with a lot of players,
maybe. That's the only way I could discover any more flaw.

Two of my beautiful towers had to go - they seemed to crash the
client. It is still possible to crash the client, but it's very rare -
and I won't tell anyone how. :)

To do:
o Nothing?


* Play Information *
Title : Castle M
Filename : castle_m
Map type : Deathmatch 8-32 players
Author : Mirar
Email address : mirar@mirar.org
Home page : http://www.mirar.org/half-life/
Screenshots : http://www.mirar.org/half-life/castle_m.html :-)

Installation :

Since I'm using a custom sky, this is going to get
a little bit harder then usual. The easiest thing
(if you didn't do this already) is to unzip
everything in the Half-life/valve directory -
everything will be in the right directory then.

If you fail with this, this is where the files
should go:

castle_m.bsp -> half-life\valve\maps\
castle_m.txt -> half-life\valve\maps\ (or wherever you want)
castle_m??.tga -> half-life\valve\gfx\env\

Sorry about the inconvinience. (I sure wish valve
would have made this easier.)

If you get the "desert" skyline, your installation wasn't
successful. Please try again.

Description :

It's a fantasy castle. It's abandoned, since a lot of
futuristic and strange maniacs are running around and
killing each other with weapons from other worlds.
This happened just now, anyway. :-)

It's magically locked up, so don't try to escape. ;)

This is an attemt of several goals:

o I wanted to make a real fantasy castle,
with lots of details. And it should be huge.
So I sketched up the looks, and tried to compile.
Not enough room for lightdata -> blam!
So I shrunk it. And shrunk it. Now it isn't that
huge anymore. :-)

The details? I hit the ceiling of clipnodes, too!
I had to strip the castle of details and details
to get it through compiling. Well, the r_speeds
liked that. :-)

o I wanted to make a large playable maps. I'm tired
of all these crowded small places...
Ever tried "maze" with 16 players? Or "snarkpit" with 32?

Well, I guess this is only for powerhorse servers... I think it
will play well for 16 and above players. It should play for 4 and
up, too, but it will be an entirely different game. It doesn't
work at all for 2-3, though.

o It shouldn't give as high r_speeds as my last map. Well, crap
this goal. It moves from 100-500 in most areas, but raises to
1500 wpoly epoly if you are in the right tower looking in the
right (wrong?) direction. :-) And you can get higher from the
intermission cameras, but that won't affect play.

I've played it in software mode on my machine (see below), and
didn't have a lot of troble, so I hope it's enough.

I had to make a lot of textures scaled up 4x, thats why it looks
unsharp now and then. There is some nearly-misalignes from this,
but it doesn't seem to stop the ambient feeling. I hope. :/

o I think I've succeded in the connectivity bits. You can get from
anywhere to anywhere in just a few seconds (well, it's a large
map... half a minute?). I hope the hidden passages isn't to hidden.

Well. The result is a fantasy castle with not a lot of details, but
I'm happy with the architecture and lightning.

I couldn't fit in the HEV and health charges, so there is a lot of
batteries and helthkits - and some magical health chargers, too.

When I was amost finished, I got some reports of crashing clients.
When I investigated this, it seemed that my map could crash any
non-local client. Bad. I've spent some weeks just tracking this bug. I
had to remove even more details and get rid of some towers, and redo a
lot of things. Valve couldn't reproduce the bug, so I got no help
there. Sierra told me to buy WC Pro, but afaik that isn't possible
yet. (And I think it's a HL bug, anyway.)

Well, I think I've solved the problem. You can still trigger the bug,
but only I (and [black]Hubbe) knows how, and we won't tell you. It's
very rare. I closed the top one of the towers to stop people from
going there often and eventually (still rare) crash their clients.

Now I'm satisfied with and tired of this map. So out she goes.
Handle with care, and have a good time playing on it!

Can you find the hidden passages?


(There is one bug still - the "painting" hidden passage isn't openable
from the inside. This isn't my fault, and I couldn't find any way to
open it from the inside. Sometimes it helps just rotating and press
the air everywhere. This is, too, a half-life bug - but I feel it
isn't that important.)

(and giving general advices)

Textures : a lot, and almost all are home-made;

CW_TALL The main textures. The walls and the
CW_TALL3, 4 common floor texture.
CW_PEB2 TALL3, 4 is the same as TALL, but scaled and tiled
2 and 4x for larger textures (to fewer the polys)

* OUT_GRAVEL The gravel in the yard.

CW_IVY The ivy texture on the walls.

CW_BRN_ROCK The throne.
CW_FLOOR2 The throne hall floor.
CW_SANDSTONE The raised floor below the throne.
SG_1 - SG_4 The four textured windows.
-0CW_PLASTER The white plastering (also in the kitchen)

{CW_LADB0 Ladder textures - the side and
{CW_LADB2 the ladder (with transparent holes).
{CM_RAIL0 rail top
{CM_RAIL3 rail side

CM_BED_TOP These are heavy modified and home-made
CM_BEDSIDE variants of some texture i found on the net.
It's the beds in the lower floors.

CM_PINE3 This is the common wood texture's i've used.
CM_PLANKS3 The two first are warmer (pine) textures,
* TRRM_WOOD the two second look more worn.
-0PANELF The wooden panel (5 variants)
CM_WOODWALL The wooden floor in royalty bedroom

* FIFTHIES_CCH1B For the royalty bed.
* FIFTHIES_DSK2 The hinges on the main doors.

* SKY This you can see...

Well, that's it. The ones marked '*' is from HL packs. The other lot
are from the net, mostly heavily modified by me (using Gimp), or even
made from scratch. I made sure they all were in public domain. I hope
I'm right about this...

Tell me if you want the WAD's. I'll be happy to share. They contain
some more stuff, too. :)

* Copyright / Permissions *
o Authors may use this level as a base to build additional levels.

o You may distribute this level without this file. (Why?) But I would
prefer if it's sent both with this file and the sky.

o This BSP may be distributed in any way.

o You can have the .RMF file if you want to check it out, just mail me.

o You can have the .WAD's with the new textures, just mail me.
(Not the art, though. I promised the artist.)

o If you have any regular mapping questions, state them at Department
of Engineering, halflife.lowlife.net. I will probably answer them
there - or someone else will.

o If you're making a map, test it at DoE (see directly above).
This will save Radium from going insane from too many too bad maps.
