New Map: Cull (water, FFA)

Post by ralphie »

It's a 12x12 water map, meant for 4 way free for all (1 or 2 per team team), but will work for team games.

Obviously it's not a ground breaking concept, and probably seem in every RTS game with water units ever (and I imagine in spring previously. oh well!)

It's possibly too small, so i'm open to feedback!

Features by aGorm, incase anyone didn't figure that out.

Some screens!

(ps, yes there's no land bridges, it kind of defeats the point)

Pehaps could PM me what is wrong exactly, thanks in advance.

I was talking about the fact that trees and tons of vegetation cripple performance..

The number of features does not seem excessive. I would say its comparable to the number of trees on Small Divide.

not entirely true ive played maps with like 1000 trees with no noticeable performance drain and not just for me, all players reported not much performance loss if any

plus its 12*12. small supreme would deffo kill your performance more than this map

I played a game on this map with Noize and others yesterday. It was pretty darn fun, hover/ship/air/kbot action. Epic hover mis-management lost me the game :(

I didnt notice any performance drops personally.

I dont like when ppl whine that features give a performance hit, its not like PCs are gonna get crappier in the next few years, and on my 1 year old pc, every spring map and mod runs fine with max detail on high res. Even aftershock v3 works perfectly fine.
If you cant handle the map, dont play it. Just dont whine that it doesnt run on your PC.

OI??? I asked for that 6 months ago and got trolled mercilessly by sleksa for it. God forbid a weapon fire regardless of whether a treee is in the way or not...

In any case, kick ass. :-)

Ignoring (But still colliding with) features would cause units to fire into wrecks, uselessly, when they have a better line of fire on another unit (some weapon already do this), while not firing when you can just destroy the wreck/tree is a pain in the butt (other weapon types do this).

If you mean not colliding with features, features (especially wrecks) are an integral part of the battlefield landscape, and the choice of arcing-vs direct fire weaponry to shoot over obstacles, as well as the micro of units around and among wrecks to get/avoid line of fire, is an important part of gameplay.

Is there really a solution that allows units to ignore features they can easily kill, but not ignore features they cant?
