Town hall is pretty much done
but with all that complicated brush work I'll be damned the thing bloody compiles, anyway going to make a bunch of prefab houses to pepper the rest of the town with, some of which should have interiors. after that it's a matter of adding all the other key buildings

* Library
* Carousel boutique
* Fluttershy's cottage
* CMC Club house maybe?

and deciding where RED and BLU should spawn is also on my mind, any insight?

please keep making this,this is so amazing
i vote for you making the pink hot air balloon twilight rides down on in the theme song,leading up to clousdale.

good job so far!loving it! :D

Plans

RED - spawns in Sweet apple acres

BLU - undecided

Town hall is the hill (Map may be converted to separate game modes later, after all asymmetric maps are always far more interesting)

Cloudsdale and Canterlot are going to be 3D skybox features
IE: no physical involvement.

I would model specific props myself but it's a huge pain with all the compiling, so I guess early versions will include mostly just brush work.

I'm going to express my concern right this instant. I generally dislike custom maps, because they usually end up going for looks and completely disregarding actual gameplay.

One thing that I would prefer is if you keep it where both sides are more or less symmetrical. It helps to keep sides even, and will make it so that people who've been on the map before won't automatically join the better side.

Another point is that you MUST keep every last class in perspetive.
Sniper - should have some good but not over-powered vantage points be careful on making the map too open, be sure to block his full view with some of the buildings
Scout - medium to close range, and areas where he can jump around to various areas of the map. Needs running space to be as effective.
Pyro - pretty much just close quarters. Pyro is an ambush character, and so is much more effective with tight corners and places where he can jump down onto players
Soldier - Needs some high up points that he can rocket jump to, giving him a good vantage point for combat.
Demoman - range changes. He needs some places that he can sticky up for defense, but be sure not too make it too easy. Be sure to add some inconsistency to the ground in order to mess with the grenades.
Engineer - Be sure to make places that the engineer can place sentries effectively in, but be sure not to make them too overpowered. It's a major flaw in many maps
Heavy - Not much I can say that hasn't been said already. Make sure distances aren't too long, otherwise it'll be a bitch to get back and forth.
Spy - Many custom maps that I've seen aren't good for the spy. Much like the pyro, they work well in smaller areas where they can hide evade, etc. Seeing a spy from far away is an easy kill
Medic - Eh, pretty much nothing to say for this guy. He isn't meant for combat. I despise combat medics, just saying

Sorry for the long-winded list, I just really want this to be a good, playable map. And the thing is, that's not even half of the stuff that I'd mention. Don't feel overwhelmed, though, just take your time and make updates if it's found necessary

I've done a bit of work with Source SDK and Hammer, and I'd like to help out with the project if you don't mind. I put up a derpymail address, so contact me there if you please.

I need to make a few more stock house models rather than just the two.
there are also two stock houses with interiors
added paths which I'll go over with stone later
it's be easier to replace the stock houses with models later but I'll get the basic brush work done
and with hammers map size limits we may just be able to pull this off

For medics the first thing that comes to mind is bits of cover or corners to hide behind while your Heavy is dealing damage. I know that's the first thing I look for on a new map. Otherwise you just get picked off immediately.

It doesn't have to be full cover, think like how Lakeside has those sheets up around the CP. You can still snipe people if you're quick and patient, but you can also dodge said sniping/hide a bit when you're down there.

Hey.

I've actually done a few TF2 maps, back when I played the game and was part of a good community that gave me good criticism. However, seeing what you have so far, I have a few concerns.

1) Please, please, please, please, OH GOD PLEASE tell me you are familiar with func_detail! Not only will it save you eons of time in compiling VVIS, it will help group detailed objects. Be aware you cannot seal your map in with them.

2) How do you plan to separate areas with Areaportals? Source Engine games really do not like spawling landscapes, and even on maps that do have large areas, they are separated by carefully-placed Areaportals.

The problem I see right now is that the Town Hall has a ton of open space. Not only is this not good for classes like Heavy (and excellent for Snipers), it also makes placing Areaportals tougher. Believe me, you NEED them if you want your map to not chug for everypony.

3) Please listen to >>8146 . He knows what he's talking about. However, I need to add something about Medic:

Medics need easy-to-spot (yet contestable) health kits. Since they're the ones healing and ubering (and often are a prime target), they need to be able to swipe health pickups whenever they can. If your map lacks healthkits, or they are too sparsely spaced, a Medic's lifespan will decrease dramatically. This is really frustrating for people who want to play this class, as well as when an uber is needed to break Sentries.

4) I know it can be fun to make the details, but please, I strongly urge you to just "block out" what you want the general shape and boundaries and use devtextures until you've done several bouts of testing and done enough Alpha versions to come up with a somewhat-final layout. This will save you those frustrating moments where you have detailed something intricately, but must throw it out because it makes a class/classes much too strong or prevents a team from winning, or is just not fun.

I'm sorry for the critical wall of text here, but please, take these things into consideration. I've seen far too many pretty maps that end up in massive stalemates/steamrolls because of poor layout and not enough time testing.

Have a picture of Fluttershy eating an apple. She believes in you.
>> No. 10511
>>10510

Oh, one more thing I wanted to add regarding point #3. Ammo kits bring Engineers like light to moths. Any time you place a max ammo kit, you will create a sentry spot nearby. Medium kits less so (but still contribute to sentries). Small ammo kits don't really, but they're nice to have next to small health kits sometimes.

I have some questions regarding this project.

First, do you need any help with concepting any part? I know my way around concept art. 3d modelling, not so much unless I can zbrush it, but I could help with texturing stuff if anypony can lend a hand on some basic info.

Second, do you have a main layout of this map yet? I've seen your pics and the whole brouhaha seems wide open. For the size you're working on, it looks like a 3 control point symmetrical map however the layout's kinda messed up for that. But one cannot offer a valid critique on something that's in an early stage.

Areaportals are CRITICAL if you want your map to run well. Assigning fade distances to props helps too, but areaportals are mandatory.

Right so GUIstudioMDL 2.2 (the compiler I'm using)
is generating a collision model OVER the walls and stretching it right up to the roof
what does this mean? no one can jump up onto those flower boxes as well it can make navigating around the corners a bit tedious.

I don't think I can help with modeling much, but the basic style is an English Tudor village. My only opinion is that the roof edges should be a little more rounded >>11653
Other than that, it looks excellent!

Oh, and instead of individual houses, you could make some larger buildings too >see pic

House 1's was a pain in the plot to make by the way. Hopefully the next set won't be an asymmetrical nightmare.

He already did, that's how I was able to compile them for Source with those collision models.

I decompiled the pony ragdolls to use as a size reference, so the doors are slightly larger than players, but they can always be scaled up in the qc.

Whoops, I meant players are slightly larger than doors.
>> No. 16809
Right today I start reworking the map from scratch
the brush houses were a tad bigger than I thought
and scaling the map would have been a disaster
going to work a lot with dev textures on this one though so expect a bit more being done

Sorry but I've been working on this for the past few months
http://equestrianwar.tumblr.com/
I'll start a collab thread for this at the appropriate time
you can consider this on a near indefinite hiatus
I apologize for letting this slip my mind the past little while
I only hope my current project is more promising as I'm aiming for it to be more than just a map

I was actually thinking of making a map of ponyville as well, because I saw a map of Ponyville, and it was rather horrifying.

So i started looking for a decent overview map of ponyville, and i've come accross this page and see youre already in development.

I was also thinking of making a king of the hill map with the town hall as the point.

I havnt worked with hammer really before, i've been learning it these past few days, and well 3D modling to create buildings, ( ie Maya, 3dmax, ect) I cant do my self. I have though, been lookin into learning maya, i was starting to work with it to make a tree similar to the show, using textures i would create from the show and edit them to fit properly with the game.

I have really only worked with KillingFloors Sdk, and i usually make everything using brushes and not using a 3d moddling program.

I would like to help, but I really dont see how i could, as you seem to have all the bases covered.

I guess i could work on my own map, pretty much made out of brushes and so forth if i dont learn maya or so....

although, something i would like to suggest, is your textures, it seems you're going with Tf2 style textures (ground and trees), so one thing i would suggest. Using Custom tree's, that look like ponyvilles trees, just to give it a more, authentic look per say.

I guess, i might scrap my map but maybe i'll end up working on it eventually, or maybe make one for unreal.

either way, Best of luck. - Ambrotus

I started with the fan made map on deviantart, but I then adjusted it to correct its horrible inaccuracies and add season 2 locales lie the hospital.

Woah, back from the dead, my name isn't even the same as earlier :D

Anyhoo, I didn't mention earlier that I have experience with Google Sketchup. It's not the ideal program for map creation, but I could help with the model creation if needed.
As for porting those models into something like TF2....
Yep, somepony else will have to handle that.
