Post XCTF1 Abandoned Place [Update 09-10-2013] [Finished]
Hello everyone,

This is my first mapping attempt and I would like to keep you informed about the progress I'm making.

I'm attempting to build a CTF map unlike any other around at this point. My main inspiration for the layout and gameplay are Japanese Castles, Spider Crossings, Infinity and CTCTF3(q3).

The point of this map is a open-closed fast paced map, what do I mean with that. Open closed is what I call Spider Crossings, a open base and mid with a connecting part that is completely seperated from eachother. Another version of this is Japanese Castles with a courtyard and garden which are closed off from eachother for the most part.

What I'm looking for in terms of fast paced can be found in Infinity and CTCTF3(q3). Two maps that are relatively small but very intertwined. Also they have a nice movement flow with fast and slower parts.

Summed up together: my goal is to attempt and bring these two styles together, a fast map that is intertwined yet has open-closed style parts in it.

Now talking about it is all great, but pictures say more then a 1000 words. Therefor I've added some screenshots of my current progress. I've started this project on 17-09-2013, there is no planned release date yet but I hope to be done before the end of 2014.

welcome!
I like the forms, hope to watch it detailed soon.
The only appointment could be the color set, maybe to grayish desaturated or whatever.
Hey, just a matter of opinion, if that scheme is intentionated, i should call the map somewhat cinderish :)

The textures aren't permanent yet although i do not expect to make massive changes to them,I've done quite a lot of additions since these screenshots. What would you suggest for textures?

My goal is for a gameplay based map with of course plenty details, the current style seems to work in both picmip 0 and 10. Once I've got a version which I think worthy of testing I will publish this on here. I think this is about 1 week away.

Hi again,

A new update for my first map. Some pictures of the updated mid and the first playable version of my map available for download. Of course this only works in Wolfcam at this point. Please give as much feedback, good or bad!

Note that this is just the blue base, red base will be added once it's finished.

New update with several changes, most striking are the new textures, fixed light features, added a hallway and many smaller changes.

For extra viewing pleasure this time you get a pk3 to actually play it in ql.
Just copy it to AppData\LocalLow\id Software\quakelive\baseq3

FFA is the only mode supported atm due to spawns.

The maps name comes from a mix between the place CTF and perhaps even QL is at and the general vibe the textures and atmosphere should give.

Lastest bsp version included.

- Added CTF Spawns
- Map overlay done
- Almost all detailling done
- Item/Weapon placement done

The end is there, the finished version of the map.

http://www.sendspace.com/file/s0365u

Place in your Quakelive/baseq3 folder with all the other pk3's and check it out (Set it to read only).

/map XCTF1 in console will get you there.
