Default Pass The Map

CALLING ALL SAM MAPPERS!!!

OK I got this idea from a recent Quake mapping project and I thought this would be a fantastic idea for us Sammers. Here's the deal:

GOAL: 10 community mappers will colaborate to make a DM map for SS:SE. The finished map should support at least 10 players (1 spawn point allowed per mapper, more added as necessary). The finished map should also be as PLAYABLE as possible (i.e. even though there's many hands in the pot the map still needs to be cohesive).

HOW: Each mapper has EXACTLY 1 WEEK to complete their section of the map and then must pass the map to the next mapper. You are limited to 1 SECTION ONLY. You may then add necessary doorways/hallways to properly connect/integrate your portion of the map. Heck, your portion can even be JUST a hallway if you want. You *MUST* try to respect the work of the previous mappers as much as possible when adding doorways and the like. Conversly, you should probably leave one or two areas in your section where doorways and such can be added (i.e. an open wall that you don't mind if another mapper chops away).

OTHER STUFF:
- No custom textures! Only SS:SE textures may be used.
- When you are done with your portion you can ONLY pass the map to the next mapper in line (see below).
- You may post ONLY ONE screenshot here of your completed section.
- You must put in weapons/power ups. If we find that when the map is done and we have too many/too little then we will tweak accordingly (i.e. so we don't end up with a dozen rocket launchers in the map etc).
- For this map keep outdoors stuff to a minimum. Remember there will be 10 mappers so we have to try to keep the overall size under control. If you decide your addition will be a courtyard or something like that then that's fine but please keep it enclosed with a wall.
- On the technical side, obviously try to keep your portion properly sectored and zoned. It would suck if there was a 30fps difference from one room to the next.


OK so there it is. I'm sure other questions/thoughts will pop up. Will this be a disaster? I don't think so. I think the pool of mappers that we have in this community is top notch. It will also give us a chance to colaborate with each other. Heck when we're done we should send it to Croteam as a gift from the community.

GOLDEN RULE: This is NOT a contest! Set aside all egos and concentrate on what's good for the MAP. And, as always, do your very best!


OK I'M GOING TO START OFF THE MAP. I WILL HAVE THE FIRST SECTION COMPLETED AND READY TO BE PASSED BY NEXT SUNDAY NIGHT. THE NEXT 9 MAPPERS THAT RESPOND TO THIS THREAD ARE IN! THE ORDER IN WHICH YOU RESPOND DETERMINS THE ORDER IN WHICH THE MAP GETS PASSED. NOW GO!!!!!

OK Hollywood and asd are in so far. I don't think Rod is a mapper though (are you?).

To avoid confusion in the future, just put "I'm in!!!" in your post so we know for certain who's who.

Also Rod, this project might be newsworthy enough for the main page.

Ah but that's part of the challenge! I will be posting my one screenshot next sunday night. All mappers only get one screenshot apiece. The map will grow organically. When a mapper gets his turn he will add what he sees fit and also incorporate their individual style, but he only has one week to do so. It's a challenge to the mappers' skill.

I can't say what the map will be about. I have begun my room though. I'm in a sorta Gothic mood I guess. We'll see what happens.....

Ok, I'm in. But I don't know if I'll do good, because I've never tried any 'standart' map without custom textures, models...

Altough I haven't tried the Gothic textures, but oh well

Viper you seem like a good mapper. Your map that you made earlier seemed pretty cool.

I'll take a go at it. I'm not the greatest, but I know how to map.

will be interesting to see what this turns out like. perhaps for the next map you should all colaborate on a storyline beforehand then do the map like you did on this one.
