Ok... Having not touched a map editor in 2 years (maybe more) I'm having a little trouble working up a map. I uploaded a new map (strykermap01.wad) and before anyone says anything its no where near completion. Testing this map I kinda feel like its not going anywhere... <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orchmm.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? --> so I just pretty much wanna know if its looking any good so far and I should keep going, or it either isn't looking good or its not a needed kind of map. Any suggestions on what to do with it, or for any new maps would be very welcomed atm. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orc2.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> And to make life a tad bit easier: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://downloads.orcishweb.com/koraxdev/Stryker/StrykerMap01.wad">http://downloads.orcishweb.com/koraxdev ... rMap01.wad</a><!-- m -->

Ok.. uhmm I worked more on the map last night, added more to it. If its good enough I'll call it complete and move on to something else. Or if anyone has suggestions on what to add to it or whatever I'll happily try doing them. And I do realize it probably isn't good enough to be a completed map, but hey, I think its a good first attempt for not having done it in awhile. I re uploaded it under the same name as the previous one, so if someone can give it a try and tell me what they think it would be very appreciated.

The map shows that you have the technical part down, textures, lighting, 3D floors - what the map is missing is the idea, it looks like a couple of rooms put next to each other with no purpose. Try to imagine that your map is a special place of some kind, and build it according to that vision.

This one is mostly for getting back to the feel of mapping. I'm going to start working on another map and hopefully it'll turn out better than this one. I hope to have another one done by the weekend, if everything works alright.

Okay... I've started working on another map. I uploaded it to my folder on kdev (Cave01.wad). Its a really small cave right now (Perhaps good for a side quest or something?). If you think its good enough but not big enough then i'll expand on to it a bit more. Sorry I haven't had much time to do much on it. I'll still be working on some maps, just not as often. So.. I hope its ok.

Get a segmentation violation trying to run it - probably uploaded wrong, either make sure you set your FTP client to binary or pack it into a ZIP archive.

ok, i've packed it into a zip file and made sure I used binary. It should work now.

Still crashes with a segmentation violation.

I am running Cave01 map normally. Might be it is something wrong with Vavoom, not map. And, it's really hard to tell anything in particular about the map at this stage. I also checked previous map (StrykerMap01), I agree with RambOrc that it looks like a compositions of rooms that do not feel like seamless level.
