  1. While mine counts, I'm still (but not REALLY) kicking myself over the fact that there's a collision error near one of my lifts. And another lift shooting you up too high. Well that's what happens when I use one of Epic's cliff meshes with default collision that extrudes farther than it should, I THINK that's the problem but otherwise...? I had to change collision of a few meshes that didin't behave as expected (since I didn't create 'em) What matters is that I can say that I technically entered the contest, even if there was a thing or two I could have easily fixed / changed to make it better.

    Oh well, I'm still considering completing a lower level circuit and adding in more foliage and other details, and other changes throughout - such as "does having a rocket launcher on the upper level create an imbalance or is it good? Or would a lower level placement, rather, create a contention point?" Stuff like that. That was the plan regardless, adjust based on feedback 'till it is FINAL final. So long as I can eventually say, "My map features in Unreal Tournament's rotation" I'll be happy. :P


    Also I REALLY need to get around to getting more than 8GB ram

    I literally just upgraded from 8 to 24 with two new sticks right before my final working period on the level before contests' end... I THINK that made compile times faster but Packaging still took awhile. But maybe an hour of packaging is still faster than what a detailed level would have been otherwise? I dunno lol.

    THanks for extending the deadline, folks! I was still packagine when it 'officially' passed! :D That said, I of course still plan to improve upon this thing in the near future, nonetheless....








  3. EDIT: Problems fixed, shows up in menus. Originally a thread asking for help, but thank god 'sharing' is quicker the 2nd time around... so for now just last-minute criticisms, as I didn't work on this enough until recently.. not enough testing... though, enjoy! ;)

    An old Nali Basilica nestled in the cliffs, overrun first by the Skaarj before being converted into a Tournament arena....

  5. Not Maya, my picture is in fact Blender.


    I've been working on this slowly and surely, and having basic BLENDER 'brushes' helps because they're more concise than Unreal BSP I find, easier to change, and can just be swapped for more final-looking modular assets. As of this phase, it's really about the layout, but if it can be engrossing to look at as well as play, than more power to it.

  6. I don't know about you guys, but to block out my map I find that utilizing some basic models I've created from BLENDER allows for more concise shapes than relying on BSP alone. I find that more concise shapes actually alter what the final layout of the map will be - this Basilica started out life as a hallowed out octagon with a square walkway in another big room, versus an actual walkable roof....

    Of course more final versions of the level will divide this Basilica up to be more modular, but as it stands the front is a ramped' entry while the rear leads to an elevator shaft (jump trick, people)... so there are actually 3 floors to this thing....
