    Map of the Month Q1 2014

    Post by ronwolf1705 on Wed Jan 01, 2014 4:58 pm

    Because there were few participants the previous round, this round of the Map of the Month competition will go on for 3 months (Q1 2014). This way we hope to attract some more participants. It might be a competition, but it also just good fun to create a nice set of Wolfenstein 3D levels. So even if you're not a big fun of the somewhat more extensive features, it is entirely possible to just create a good ol' vanilla Wolf3d map. Whatever you want to do, it's up to you.

    The engine, along with the map definition files, can be found here:

    @AlumiuN wrote:Here's the new MMC stuff for the first quarter of 2014. The changes are as follows:
    - New particle system for weather, use a code of 3 for a blizzard
    - New wall tiles starting at 300 (don't use them for defining features, I don't know what will happen if you do Razz)
    - Multiple pushwalls can be switched at once, can be switched more than once (if walls get pushed into the right spots), and don't count towards the secret total
    - Pushwalls kill enemies and the player if they're in the way
    - An object that blocks pushwalls (dead enemies no longer stop pushwalls)
    - An object that allows pushwalls to go through walls
    - Explosive barrels
    - Collapsible columns
    - Fences as directional sprites
    - A random boss object (this should be interesting Razz)
    - Probably something else I've forgotten that I put it Very Happy

    Completed maps can be send to my email adress, which is my MSN adress found on my profile.

    Any questions can be asked here or over at the DHW forum.

    I've fixed the archive so that the music is in the right position (it was previously off by one, thanks to Tricob for pointing it out).

    OK, I said fixed, apparently WDC actually broke it so you can't test maps at the moment. Anyone know an alternate program that won't screw up the AUDIOT files?

    AlumiuN is working on a solution for this problem.

    Fixed it, go download the archive again. It was just an issue with the AUDIOT file (thanks WDC xP).

    The point of that first map is that the map settings on the top and side are set to defaults, not that the map will work without adding a start position somewhere Razz

    I've uploaded a patch that fixes some issues with the random enemy spawning - one of the major issues was in the definition files, so you'll need to update those for your chosen editor. Grab it from the link in the first post. This also adds a test map to the first map. The first room showcases how the pushwalls work now, the switch will make the pushwalls move back if used again, the second rooms showcases the teleporters and the directional sprites, and the third room shows the new textures and destructible objects.

    I've uploaded a patch that adds a new feature - you can control the distance a pushwall moves and whether or not it will stop when it encounters another pushwall object on the map now. The new features use (13,0) to control the number of tiles it will move and (14,0), if filled, will cause a pushwall to stop on any other pushwall object (including switched pushwall objects). You can either get the whole package again, or download this patch. I will possibly be adding in future the ability to push explosive barrels and collapsible columns as if they were normal objects too, provided I can actually get it working.

    Patch: http://www.mediafire.com/download/op55yz4xmyb6hjd/MMC2014Q1%20Patch.zip (for some reason I can't get a link to work properly, just copy and paste it)

    OK, it ended up taking a lot less work than I thought it would, so I've updated the files (and the patch) with the ability to use the pushable item flag on collapsible columns and explosive barrels.

    During the first quarter of this year you can submit your map(s), then we'll have a voting round. The winner will be the co-ordinator of the next round.

    I will contribute a plain Wolfenstein 3D map that will be a base for one of my Wolf3D ROTT maps. How many maps can a person submit for the contest?

    I was and am still interested but I haven't even downloaded the package yet. Hopefully I will do so soon - but as this isn't supposed to be finished until late March I don't feel like I'm in a rush.

    Sure, there is still a lot of time. I was just checking the interest on this forum specifically, I hope to get a couple of 'new' mappers for this round.

    I've uploaded a small patch that (hopefully) fixes a small issue with the deaf guard floor code. You can grab the whole package again from the first post or just download the patch here.

    I've uploaded another patch that does two things: 

    - Mecha hitler dropping things no longer crashes the game 
    - Objects dropped by enemies killed by pushwalls will be placed somewhere that is reachable by the player instead of under the pushwall if it stopped on their body 

    As always, you can grab the whole package from the first post or just grab the patch here.

    I've updated the patch and the main package documentation to reflect the pushwall option changes (as per this post http://wolf3d.darkbb.com/t3037-map-of-the-month-q1-2014#26179 ).

    I've just updated the package with a couple of bug fixes: 

    1. Fixed pushwalls leaving the wrong floorcode behind which led to some guards being dumb 
    2. Fixed movement against breakable columns and explosive barrels such that they are identical to the normal versions of the objects 

    As always, you can grab the whole package from the first post, or just grab the patch here.

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/op55yz4xmyb6hjd/MMC2014Q1%20Patch.zip

    Unfortunately, due to some personal issues I haven't been able to do much else with the code base, so besides adding Tricob's fence and these fixes the next competition's package will be the same as this one. But still, feel free to suggest things to me and I'll see what I can do.
