I guess I'll kick it off by showing some screenshots from a map I've been working on recently.

This map was originally made by nick for LEGO_MP as pdmL01: Lava Control 4. It was then ported to Sauerbraten (unreleased) by many of us, and I've remade it in Red Faction.

NOTE: Obviously, as these screenshots are from a map that is still in beta the finished product could still be significantly different.

Comments? Questions? Criticisms?

Looks cool, the look of the map reminds me of Hykos by Vibes.

The map has changed significantly, and we're ready for testing. I've got a server up named "EVERYBODY JOIN" if you would like to help. :)

The lobby map looks pretty neat for me. But ya you'll have to add some minor (not brighter :P ) light in the outskirts. It,s too dark to see however overall its perfect . B) No more extra changes.

But adding lights makes it brighter?


Not brighter enough to make your eyes bleeding , that's what i meant.

i must just have a brighter screen, I feel if i use more lighting it will make it too bright
I do like having a Grunge feeling to city maps like this and usally i will go for dark shadows like this or make the whole map have a midnight purplish tint to it

Which reminds me i should have a look at some of my old harddrives at some point had a near complete project for the RedDoom mod that had purplish tint to the outdoor areas of the map
saw some of the pictures using the way back machine however links are dead from imageshack :(

Recently, I've been trying to avoid using dark or "night" lighting in RF wherever possible. Lightmaps in RF can't have true black (I believe either 40, 40, 40 or 28, 28, 28 are the lowest it'll let you go), so darker maps tend to not look quite right.

See my Anubis map for example. The lighting looks way better in the editor after calculating lightmaps, because it displays true black. Load it in-game however, and it just ends up looking really bland and uninteresting.

To each their own, but I feel like brighter lighting works better in this engine.

EDIT: Also, I think your idea for the "Lobby" map is really cool, and the screenshots you've posted for the most part look good. I can't wait to try it out. :!

I belive my mapping style and lighting is Influenced Heavily on work of SKA Diesel and also RoMeK

Diesels River Requiem (RFU4) is a great example of influence in my night maps
using Purple lighting <40, 40, 100> as his ambient lighting which gave it a nice night feeling then <255, 175, 95> or <255, 205, 5> orange lights to enhance the indoor environments

one of their own i guess

Yeah looks mint in editor however i think the pure blue has let it down slightly? could be wrong however feels very green to me ? i think my monitor might be a tad too bright after playing that map lol
saying that... it does add a nice old mossy Aztec feel to it

Just finish up your map, and we'll see how it goes in the end. Wouldn't like too many spoilers though :3
