Steamroller
« on: Saturday, April 14, 2012, 14:52:28 PM »
Not sure if mAAp has this or not. But could one of are talented map peeps make Steamroller?  Was one my fav maps on 2.8 but was never really played cause it was hard on some computers but with 2.5 graphics everyone should be able to play it. Would it be to much work and a waste of time I hope not.

Thanks to Eliz work we have the to chance of a version of the map completely ported, but you will need the related packages to be able to play the map. (almost all of the buildings are static meshes actors i believe).

p.s. by "related" i mean all of the packages the map makes use of (and note that it's made almost entirely of packages published along with version newer than 2.5).

Sorry for digging up an old thread, but:

I know Possessed said on an other thread that this would be a lot of work
Steamroller should be alot of work.
but if I'm not mistaken, Eliz made a tool that makes it easier in November.

Now seeing as I don't know much about these things I don't know whether its still quite a lot of work or not (besides, the beta is almost over and you can't release a map this big without testing it).

I'm only asking because it came up in our forums that some people had played it a lot and others hadn't even seen it.

I would really love to see River Village converted over to 2.5. That was a fun map even though it was tough to get players to play it.

I was planning on that.
I got all the resources used that is not in 2.5.0 moved into mylevel, so now it loads in the 2.5.0 client.
Can you come to the TS(ts.aa25.org) so we can discuss whats next?

myLevel sucks because then it can't be used in other maps, unless you add it to that maps' myLevel which makes for 2x size. It's fine if it's ONLY stuff that goes into that map but it would be nice to be flexible.

I don't have a mic so getting on TS wouldn't be very productive :)

I was thinking of creating packages with all the missing 2.8.5 objects, but for just this example it was quicker to do it like this.

The map is <60 MB when all is inserted, so that shouldn't be an issue.
Dont worry about TS, I only use it for text chat, I dont use a mic either.
