lol, try downloading the fixed and updated Skytown2 map because Skytown has a couple of missing textures. The Skytown2.txt has a description of what Anton has changed/fixed in Skytown and released in the fixed and updated Skytown2 map.

map has some good ideas but seems the first version was VERY beta. the mapping community at the Quake3World map editing forum would have saved you alot of the technical difficulties you had with this map.

Yep, Skytown2 works really fine :).

Bots have some probs still, but the corrected version surely deserves the 9.

Blurr, I just downloaded your 'well of time' - it so cool, that I haven't words.

Not a good gameplay for me ('cause I like open maps - without corridors, hideouts, etc.) and also because we playind 1 on 1 at LAN, always.

So it's too big for me.

But the whole idea is great.

Returning to old pointrelease means quake reinstalling?

I have 1.31 now, and only 1.17 worked good for me before.

I want to say first off that, with flaws aside, Skytown is great. Kind of like what I was trying to do with 'Well of Time.' I had a similar problem of missing textures with my water. No matter what I did, the texture was missing on other computers. I had to finally include the water textures in my level and make an entry in the shader file. The skybox line problem seems to have surfaced with the later point releases. Try an earlier version and the lines will disappear.

First - coo map, too bad 'bout the errors, but nice to see a space map that isn't set in...well, 'space'. :)

Second - I have the same problems with the skybox borders on my ATI card. I think it's a video card problem, I've seen people complaining about the same thing in other places (including LVL's forums). Doesn't look like anyone has an answer, but I'll look around...

You get a full reveiw when you stop dumping garbage onto the screen. Skytown is a fine map that just needs some tweaking before it went out the door. So it deserves a good reveiw. Utopia was garbage that should not have seen the light of day hence the reveiw it received.

This map is hella choppy on my 1200MHz 256 ram. I dont know why. Also some missing textures. I have ATI radeon and I see those black lines mentioned before. I see it on all space maps, unless the skybox is all black.

Hey Anton, thats a cool map. You wouldnt be willing to share your .map so I can make it a Painkeep Arena map would you? I want no credit, full credit to you but it looks like a fun map for the mod I play alot.

BTW, anyone knows how to remove black lines from skybox edges?

(they appears om some cards, (Ati radeon). But at home PC I have savage4, and there are no lines... Also - any lines at nVidia cards.

Ps.

Fixing bugs in skytown now...

If somebody interested - I'll release it again as I'll finish.

bluegoal.tga, right. + modified shader to make it non solid.

All this are in pk3.

This texture is not missing at 4 computers on which I tested the map.

3 of them have q3radiant/gtkradiant installed, another one - no. Just Quake with no other stuff.

Strange... Very strange.

Any solution on how to make this textures appear in any computer?

Sloping sides - ...yeah, I understood that it's a bit annoying after submitting the map.

Remove BFG - no, no.. I like it :)

And flight shoud be too, because it's some kind of alternative communication between islands. Who knows..

Maybe I'll make skytown2 soon :)

This map, in my opinion, could have been very cool, but was marred by some serious flaws, such as:

missing textures,

mega and RA right next to one another

those annoying slopey pedistals that items sit on that make the player bounce around (you can fix this by enclosing them in a clip box that's the same height, but without the sloping sides)

And, yeah, the loss of the BFG and flight wouldn't be a bad thing.

Here's another vote for you working on it a little more and doing a re-release. :)

Thanks for review, Meatboy .

Finally - a true review of my map, which (the map) doesn't sucks :)

(remember "utopia"?) :)

I just wondering why there are textures missing on screenshot..? (teleporters textures). There should be an "energy pad" texture from "common", including modified shader in pk3 too...

Strange...

Also, I wanted to work with this map a bit more, but I lost all ideas here and decided to release it "as is" :)

Now I'm stuck with a remake of Kokiri Forest from Zelda64. Too hard... but it will be finished one time :]
