Default Survival in the Morning

Survival in the Morning


http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12216973/SS_Showcase/Survival6/Survival01_01.PNG

Here we go, more survival maps. Well...map. But I plan to do 5 more of these by Christmas, so you're all in for a ride. (EDIT: Ok I just found out there are 10 days left. So maybe not all of them before Christmas but at least 1-2 of them)
This one is in the desert. The main piece is a Sirian temple.
Weapons such as the Canon, Minigun, Lazer, Devastator are scattered around the map, so you have to find them.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12216973/SS_Showcase/Survival6/Survival01_04.PNG

Features:
Aforementioned Gnarrs
Kamikazes
Were bulls
Walkers
Spiders
Kleers
And Khnums, Scrapjacks, Rocketeers and Harpies as special event enemies that randomly spawn from time to time.
And also featuring, guest star, the infamous SandWhale.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12216973/SS_Showcase/Survival6/Survival01_05.PNG
Also a special secret Zen mode, that disables enemy spawning, so that you can grove on the map atmosphere if you want. It's only reachable with the flight cheat, as it's located on the highest possible spot in the map.

I think we need another Manly Survival event to fully enjoy this map

Not bad, but why did you put your map into a separate episode? I mean, I know you like putting your stuff in your own folders, but I think Survival or DM maps should be in the same folder as the official MP maps, so they can be in the map cycle.

Not really, if a server that has this map, cycles on it, it will disconnect the players who don't. This way it's like a very primitive fail safe, that a server will only cycle CT maps or these. Also it's more professional

I think it is less professional to be honest. If players disconnect because they don't have the map, that's their fault.

Btw, when do the harpies spawn?

Solais: Well dunno. Seems more tidy this way, not that I have any strict reference if that is the right way, I just chose to do it like that

Default Re: Survival in the Morning.

Just to offer another (unsolicited) opinion, I agree with Solais.

Server admins and players who enjoy a certain game type, are most likely going to want to play all available maps (of quality at least), rather than be forced/limited to run certain 'groups' of maps. After all, the more the merrier.

I believe it is 'traditional' in MP games in general to expect players to download maps that are required for their favorite servers.

Good server admins will even post (on their own sites, or popular forums such as this) their map lists, so that players can be ready ahead of time.

Having said that, is it not possible in SS3 to have custom maps sent to players w/o disconnecting them? (ideally they have it ahead of time, but server admins should have this option - via redirect servers)

More could be said on this topic, but it continues to veer off into general SS3 MP improvements discussion, and less about your particular map.

No it's not possible:\
Also you can vote change between groups of maps, and then the auto cycle will change too. So I don't think that having my maps in a separate episode is such an issue really.

Interesting. I'll admit I did not know that yet. Thanks for the info. I'd still prefer one large map cycle, but at least it's not as limiting as I originally thought.

Either way, I'm still grateful for the map. I've only had time for a few rounds on it so far, and it's very nice.

I haven't tried this yet, but an oasis themed survival map would provide a much needed change of scenery. I will play this and provide feedback as soon as I can.

I just tried this out solo. Very nice level, I hope there will be some online matches with this, it's awesome. Nicely done.

When you get all 5 done, someone should host a rotation server with all 5. Would be crazy fun.

How do you set the dedicated server cfg file to cycle maps from more than 1 folder? What commands do I need?

prj_strDefaultMapDir="Content/SeriousSam3/Levels/"

That should work.

You should make an Extreme Edition where you start with Cannons and all ammo items are cannonballs, and only Khnums are spawned.

absolutely beautiful, but i think the enemies come in too fast and its kinda hard to locate other weapons, as in you gotta run and explore while you got rockets flying at your face

Thanks for this map, very stunning scenery and I play on lowest graphics. If I had to criticise anything it would be that it is slightly rushed. But overall it isn't a great concern of mine, just gotta find out how to survive such a sudden amount.
