After being nagged by everyone I asked to put it in BETA version, I finally did.


IT ISNT COMPLETE YET, I NEED PUBLIC SUGGESTIONS TO IMPROVE IT FURTHER, SO TEST IT AND REVIEW IT PLEASE.


:dance:

:huh:STORY:huh:
Well, I've been looking through maps for inspiration and then I noticed that a lot of popular MG/Surf maps are remakes, another thing that got me thinking was when I noticed the community tags on some maps. Also in the maps section of gamebanana a few people left comments here and there about exclusive/dedicated maps for groups.

So when I was playing piratewars2010 with this in mind, I realised how much could be changed to improve it. So I decompiled the map and was stunned at how much potential it had. I can't make it AMAZING (like kaemon, paul, luff, hannibal, etc) but I could improve it, so I added a bunch of features and changed a few things here and there to enhance the experience.

:faint2:FEATURES:faint2:
This version of the map has had many modifications and additions which are listed here(well I can't remember all of them):

:shocked:MINOR:shocked:
Different textures for the two ships
The Skybox has ships that shoot out cannonballs
The Skybox ships randomly explode at 30, 60 and 120 seconds.
The Skybox has flagships that explode when there team's ship is destroyed.
The front of the ships fall of instead of break when they're detached.
The masts are now physics objects
The sails are now black or white and have a zombie hand or SG initials (depending on the team)
A few ragdolls here and there
The ships have actual windows like in cs_office
There is an ambient of cannons constantly firing.
The cannons have better sounds.
Slight aesthetic differences between the ships
The T's are called 'pirates' by the map and CT's are called 'CTs'
The ships shake and have a sound when sinking
Awesome sky
The plank in the middle is split in 2 and is now a physics object
:eek:MAJOR:eek:
Both ships have crow's nests with cannons
To the front of the ships is some (weak)driftwood with a very powerful cannon.
Both ships have a supply of either gunpowder or rum that, when destroyed by the other team, sinks the ship.
You must press +use to activate cannons and small boats(to help avoid empty-hand knife fights)
More grenades on broken boat


:madgrin:RARE::madgrin:
So far, the only rare thing is that an icthyosaur(don't know how to spell it) swims around and attacks players in the water ( 1/10 chance of this happening)


:clap:Credits:clap:

I have had testers/advisors assist me by giving ideas and being good critiques, I wouldn't have got this far(or even felt confident enough to post this) if it wasn't for them. And also some pretty amazing people who published their hard work to aid others. So without further ado, here are the creds!

I tested this map quite a lot! I can officially say the first revision he showed me was lacking a lot, but after about a week, he showed me his second revision...

Wow... It blew my mind, it was fantastic!

His final revision before public release is fantastic, at the moment it's in beta testing, so anything else you can suggest/improvements that would be epic.

Nice work man! (Pics to show everyone your hard work! :) )

wow this looks pretty decent. it will prly be epic on a full server.

and the flagship explosion looks awesome.
are the big boats off the flagship controllable? or are they on a automatic path?

They stay still but two will be chose at random to explode at certain intervals, it looks really cool. But trust me, the pictures don't show the full map, by a long shot.

But in a future update I WILL give them paths.

edit: PATHS ADDED

HZK

update:

Added paths, but encountered a vrad problem( numplanes + fakeplanes >= max_map_planes) because func_tanktrain uses a lot of fakeplanes. I have fixed it by simplifying geometry.

Light has been changed slightly to fit sky.

update:
added 1/5 chance of having music instead of a. cannon shooting ambient
reduced chance of fish appearing.
fish has been given attack animation
fish will attack anyone on small boat.

Your post has:
No improvements
Barely a sentence
The old 'no offence' which means that you will say something can can be improved
Nothing that could possibly be seen as a positive contribution to the community.
