    Commandergrad

    Version: Beta 1
    By: Freaknovich

    [Edit]
    Beta 1 Features:


    • Reworked minimap

    • Flags no longer bleed tickets

    • Flags now have spawns and res income (1 res/sec)

    • Tweaked visuals and optimization

    Dropbox Link Here

    Things to note:
    *This is NOT the final release
    *Many buildings had to be converted into models to bypass the max brush limit
    *There is some window flicker on buildings (will hopefully be fixed in future versions)
    *Flag configuration is not perfect and is subject to change
    *Don't expect the map to be completely optimized
    *StaticPropLighting was not included in this compile since it created very strange and unappealing results to the models generated with propper

    Special thanks goes out to Keef, SteveUK and LordDZ for help and advice.

    Yeah, I'm a bit afraid of how it will run on the servers, you really need to start reading up a bit on func_details and where to put blocks :).

    if empires forum wouldnt be so prude id have posted a pic of tits captioned "minimap or GTFO" - so youll have to imagine.

    no seriously, could you please post a minimap?
    also the map looks quite big like the size of a full scale comm map?
    hows settings for walls and turrets?
    and finally the most important question of all - are the roofs climbable and some of them infantry buildable? :D

    we need facts - facts, facts, facts!

    nice looking map btw ^^

    This reminds me of another weird commander map that was in an industrial setting.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to announce an exclusive debut of the Commandergrad minimap! Please excuse the black holes, these will be fixed in future DLC.

    Finally, an urban map where the mapper had an understanding of what towns actually look like. Well actually this is more like a residential zone / commuter housing area rather than urban but you get the point. I can't wait to fight in those neighbourhoods, I just hope that the map doesn't lag.

    This looks like something I wanted to make but everyone else told me my idea was shit and pounded my self-esteem into the ground.

    Looks good though.

    I would name this Suburban crisis

    A lot of people have these "awesome ideas", but your idea is worthless unless you follow through with it. Freak has done, and for that, I have an immense amount of respect for him.

    So you're saying I should of ignored everyone and made it anyway.
    Okay I think I can do that.

    I am still waiting for my summer break, soon as that pops up I can do something to tide my time until the fall quarter starts.
