New to Flame

Post by cRiMiNaL » 31 Jan 2019, 10:56

I've been playing Warzone for many many years
Now I am going to try to make some maps
Forewarning, I am a total n00b at map making but after hours of making my first map I'm hooked
I will upload it in the addons section (ScavCityBeta)
As I said it is my very first map, so criticize away

My goal: Scavengers!

Suggestions and input extremely welcome

Favorite map authors: NoQ and Mero

Anyhow, off to start on map 2

So the addons section is messed up and I cannot register due to code errors I'm guessing
Followed all the instructions and met with an error every time
Therefore will upload maps here
All maps are copyrighted under CC0
Good luck and criticize away modders

You need to have people test your maps and give feedback before uploading to addons
Please make sure no errors
When describing maps in addon forum having screenshots is a must.

The reason is that recaptcha shutted down.
That's why you can't register.
Since the recaptcha won't be upgraded at the moment we all have to wait until they upgrade to recaptcha v2.
they shut down recaptcha on. 2018-3-31

Okay, so I am being met with the water tile error
Still compiles the map but it insists my water tiles are not facing the same direction
I have gone through ScavCity 2-3 times and confirmed they are facing the right way

Btw, ScavCity is getting an overhaul and DowntownBattle is still being worked on
Will upload as I go
Anyone tried either map yet?

Which FlaME are you using?
SharpFlaME or FlaME?
I believe there is an option to fix water triangle errors i'm sure someone will show you how.

I'm using FlaME
Cannot figure out how to download Sharp
But I am now familiar with FlaME
I have also opened several maps that I have downloaded and played and noticed no one has water tiles facing the same way
So it really makes no difference in gameplay
I was having lag issues with UltimateScavs but solved that issue
Was using the experimental RC5
Switched to RC4 and it works
But any tips are very welcome
Shortcuts and little bits of random info could help out a lot
As of right now I am sticking with symmetrical layouts and experimenting until I can get good enough to make an actual map
One question I do have is does anyone know where or how to add additional scenery objects?
Would like to eventually make a map-mod with lots of different scenery
Also making your own tileset?
I haven't searched the forums yet but was just brainstorming today while driving and just got in
I do not know any type of coding, I can only use 3rd party software to create things but nonetheless love modding games when I can

Started working on a new map
It flows a lot better than my other maps and it's a little more complexed
Still symmetrical but trying to steer away from that slowly
Also got some screenshots of what I have so far

ScavCity
Image

Slight lag
Note: If you are using UltimateScavs mod then start with advanced bases
This map is only good for Playing with Scavs as they are highly overpowered and mean as hell
@Berg, have fun, I've read you like scavs, this map should be a blast for ya
Let me know if you can start with no base and win :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:


DowntownBattle

I have not played this map all the way through yet due to pretty bad lag
Hoping someone else can test it out and let me know if there's something I can do to fix this issue

Newest map
Windmill Valley
Image

Again I am still working on this one, going to put scenery in and there's lag issue here too

May be my PC lagging, I don't know
Shouldn't be as I'm running with the following
6 core 3.9GHz (AMD FX-6350)
16GB RAM (1333MHz)
MSI R7 370 w/2GB GDDR5
Windows 7 Ultimate
120GB SSD (OS)
300GB HDD (installed location)
1TB HDD
2TB External

UPDATE:Fixed the lag issue(for the most part). My graphics card driver was out of date. As it turns out it is mostly my PC lagging not the game

I tried several times to no avail
Maybe you could tell me step by step how to?
I don't post to forums but once every 5-10 years

I know it sound's dumb because I have a gaming PC and know a bit about computers but when it comes to coding I'm a complete retard
All I can se on here is HTML stuff...... It's chinese to me lol :stressed: :(

So I figured out why the lag
Water tiles
Is anyone else experiencing bad lag with water tiles?

DowntownBattle has tons of water tiles but I have so many hours in it I hate to throw it out ugh
As of right now it is unplayable with water.....

@Berg, I feel like an idiot, I just found the attachments tab lol
Can you tell I'm a dunce?

Anyway, guys I've made another map
This one is for multiplayer
Pretty close quarters and made for almost instant action
Again Scavengers are armed to the teeth

I need map testers, I have tested all my maps myself and am satisfied with them but need outside non-bias opinions
