Sure: http://www.mediafire.com/download/8c...ntest_Maps.rar

Free The Mind, fixed version: http://www.mediafire.com/download/6c...reeTheMind.gro


Originally, I wasn't planning to release the maps until the campaign is complete. However... I have to say that it is possible that this campaign won't be done.

It is related to the same reason why SSHDX Ep2 development is on hiatus, and why I also didn't finish my work on a new-kind of Talos Mapping tutorial: That reason being that I got a job, which will start within a month officially, but I'm already getting stuff set up.

Fortunately, it is a job that I do using the internet, so my workplace is my home, but this is also a reason why I have to work twice as hard, because my payment depends on the amount of work I do in a month. So I'll be able to be still active on the forums as usual, but not working on any project, besides a little help with Marko's SS3 campaign and fixing SSHDX bugs in my free time.

It's over! Yay

I gotta admit something, something personal. Free the Mind was the outlet I used to channel my depression, the hate and the darkness caused by my dad, I hate him alot.
This is why this map is very dark, has strange messages, and other things that looks really out of place. I wasn't focusing on some of the more important things and it cost me.
I just wanted to get my message and abused this contest as a way of doing it, i'm sorry.

I've looked over the judges reviews, hmm, I've seen my mistakes. Next time, there's always next time...

EDIT: Free was mind ends with a level link because I thought that was what we were suppose to do.

I personally imagined Free The Mind remade as an abandoned Sirian citadel on a forgotten frozen planet. I had design ideas of the main building being a giant, SS2 Sirius-style spire.

Mine was kinda based on the Anime TV Series Black Rock Shooter, hence the chains. The first guardian is even a reference to the main character with the same name. The anime was quite a thing for me after I finished it, it had so much otherworldly stuff, it would be a shame not to use some inspiration from them for a map.

Actually the map takes 1 hour only but I guess walking around doubled it

I will take those advices and include them in my future maps and projects (*cough* *cough* Project having over 26 levels now *cough* *cough*)

Nah, nothing else required, as it was required to not have any other resources unless included.

Alien World needs some stuff from the URP, hence some of the negative points it got from judges.

Yeah, check it out it's very good, it adds loads of stuff more. Dunno why the original developer of Galacticraft didn't wanna make some more planets when he could.

Default Re: "Portal to Beyond" Mapping Contest

Hello everyone, now that the contest is over I've updated the map over the weekend.

(I think I left the world info to use chapter 3, gotta fix that and upload soon, but here's what else I did!)

Free the Mind: Curling Darkness edition!

here's the change log:

1st chapter:
-extra ammo and items on easy-normal
-Fixed a major game breaking glitch (to shorten this post I only describe this if asked)
-enemies can longer be cheesed by lava

3rd chapter:
-fog has been moved down a little so it no longer shows through the top
-Scrapjack boss was revamped, hiding behind a pillar will no longer save you...

4th chapter:
-a barrier field was added to slide the players down from the sniper nest; no more fall damage!
-grass now has a grass material type; more natural
-a haze entity was turned back on for coop as it serves a different function and won't effect game play much

5th/final chapter
-intro script has been forked, hints and text now appear during the final area in coop like they did during SP
-map now ends normally

Bonus:
The map can now be played in Deathmatch, the 1st area, 2nd area, and final area are connected through teleporters. This feature is a wip and I HAVE NOT tested it.

Did you fix the player spawners as well? If you kill yourself it tends to send you way far back in the level rather than to the closest spawner.

No, but I guess it's on a to-do list, the level needs more chapters starts as each area (except chapter 5) have only one chapter start.

Chapter 4 doesn't need it, the teleports in that area work right, do they?

Well, anyway try it for your self: https://www.sendspace.com/file/5cqxwj

I guess that means this thread is now about the up-coming campaign and not the contest anymore.
