Ok well Im 800 polygons into the second map, but I am curious as to what monsters you are going to let shoot underwater... I remember in the first one there were hyperactive drones that shot underwater...

Oh that. The mapper's wish is the physics law. Any monster you want can do that. however, drones were excellent because they have so low health. Easy kill for the smg.

I'm happy you're already at 800 polygons. Man, you're a fast/creative mapper.

I'm back home, I'm back to my mac, we're finishing this soon. Prolly not in in time to Christmas, but hopefully very soon.

Esi and simon can you get me your maps until christmas?

Can someone compress the latest shapespatchers with a .sit and send them to me?

there's a slight possibility that i'll finish the map on time, but I can't promise you anything. :(
I've just had a lot of things on my hand plus i've been lazy. :P

It doesn't look possible to finnish the project until Xmas. I'm finishing the last 200 polygons of my level tomorrow. When all maps are in, I'll make up the plot and level order. Then ryoko is going to write terminals, and then there's betatesting. It looks challening to pull off all of that in one day. I'd even say it is impossible.

It doesn't matter though.

We'll release the scenario 1-7 days after Xmas, bugfree and perfect.


**NEW DEADLINE FOR MAPS**

100, 500, or 1000 polygons, doesn't matter. Finnish what you have so it's done until the 25th december.

you know what, My lazyness and "mappers block" disappeared today and my map grew a lot. I might actually be able to finish this. Where is the latest shape patch, wasn't there supposed to be some new scenery like ice stuff and so on?

Good to hear Johannes! I finished my map today. Those who play on TC will shit their pants at the end of the level. Haha! My best idea ever. John summer is going to look like this: O_O

Then he's going to run VERY FAST

And when he thinks he's made it he's going to look like this: O_O "you gotta be kidding me"

Then he's going to die.

I hope =) It's hard to kill John Summer.

Simon Dupuis reported today he won't be able to do a map. We're still happy for the work he does on textures [MSmile]

The project got 6 maps secured, one more than last year [MUp]

Esi is still mapping. We'll find out tomorrow what he's up to. He might give the project its seven7h map.

The answer to that question is that he also calls himself esi. I think it's a nickname he's had for a long time. Maybe not so known in the marathon community, but it is sure one of his nicknames. Oh. Dcbob is going to think he's a celebrity when he reads this [MLaugh]

yay! i'm famous! well yeah, it's sort of like god, jesus & the holy spirit. It's just DcBob, Johannes Gunnar & Esi ;)

Johannes Gunnar (Jóhannes Gunnar �orsteinsson) = my real name
Esi = my real life nickname, my bro started to call me that by the age of 6 but it got stuck to me around the age of 13 or so i think. And now i'm called that by the majority of my "real life" friends. ( Johannes = Johann-es = Es = Esi )
DcBob = My internet nickname

bad news Goran.
Forge decided to go boom on me.
It is experiencing some MAJOR slow downs in visual mode, so i'm unable to texture the map and what-not. I experienced the same problem one or two years ago on my G4 iMac but this has something to do with the TruBlueEnvironment task (which is the task that runs os9 programs, better known as Classic) because memory usage, and mainly CPU usage is disturbingly high for some reasons for that task. I've tried everything to fix it and nothing works so i guess the map will die here. Although if i'll happen to fix it today i'll let you know.

PS: I know you always wanted to try a solo map by me so i'll try to finish this map sometime later for you to try it out. :)

Hopefully I've finished it now, I had to chip off a few parts but along with the exit place I also fixed some really stupid errors and added terminal numbers in the map.
