Naboo: Selton

Postby AQT » Sat Jun 02, 2012 6:32 pm

Update 12/26/2017

Greetings all. Here's another one of my old projects that was never finished nor released! :o

It is being worked on again (for now). I had stopped working on this map mainly because: 1) Clone Wars era was crashing, probably due to something related to the sides, and 2) the map was too symmetrical. Originally, I began work on this map in the same year shortly after Venus was released for the Sol Map Pack, and that one was symmetrical, so I thought I would continue the formula. Now, though, it felt a little boring and repetitive.

For the past month I changed some things up a bit to make things less symmetrical but without changing the map design up too drastically. That, along with major cosmetic changes are the results so far below:

Sides will get a major overhaul from scratch-ish. Hopefully no more crashing! :)

Hello everyone. This is a map I started about two weeks ago. It shares its name with this city on Naboo. As you can see, it hardly has any background information, so it's perfect for the partially non-canon setting of this map! The design of the map was inspired by Old Towne Orange.

Here are some screenshots:

Cool concept, looks nice, but with Captain Orko (or whatever his name is), I think his Flechette Launcher needs to be down-sized somewhat, because right now it just looks big and obnoxious. Just my 2 credits.

I thought the FC-1 was generally big and obnoxious canonically as it was. :lol: I think the size is great to be honest. Typically when I see it, it's too small.

Just my opinion of course. Not meaning to sound like I'm shooting yours down. :)

Looks really cool, as I expected from you. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the progress should there be any changes before release. :thumbs:

Well I must admit it looks quite nabooish imo like other maps where before and which is good since that is the aim of the map. But since all your other maps always where a blast, I think your layout could make the difference.
Also I like the new banners and the fact that both teams got locals because that shows the player is not the main person in the conflict. He is just helping the locals because he is against the empire/rebels. I find this feeling was missing in SwbII. I always thought "ok so what am I doing here ? Why should I fight right here ?" I know that the campaign gives all this explenations but I think it gives a nice touch for conquest anyway.
A d for the FC-1 I think it looks good like it is.
Looks nice till now. I will having an eye on this too :wink:

Gee, I have his name written as it should be in the first post... it's not like I said it verbally...

As for the FC-1 Flechette Launcher model, I'm fine with its size.

@AcaelusThorne: Thanks for your input. And eh, I don't think the layout is anything special, although it is symmetrical.

Thanks to everyone else for their comments. :)

Looks quite nice AQT! I like your retexture of that flag - it looks really well done. :thumbs:

My only suggestion, from those screens, would be to fix up the shadows on some of those props. The park bench and the trees in the garden bed really should have shadows, as just about everything else does too. That's only minor however. It looks nice otherwise. :thumbs:

Also a suggestion might be some new/random environments, like a night version, a snowy version (non-canon), rainy version etc. That might be a bit hard to pull of/not what you're going for, but it might help it seem a bit less like an ordinary, bland naboo map.

It brightens my day when I see a new map in progress, it looks really nice and your custom sides and maps have been a joy to play in the past, so I'm excited to give this one a go!

Well, you have never made a map I didn't enjoy greatly and re-play regularly. I anticipate that this map is no exception. I'm really looking forward to the release.

Looking great AQT. :) Other than the sides, what will make this map different from the other 100 Naboo City Maps we've seen?

My guess is the layout and the fact that most of the props are re-textured (I think, I know the banners are).

In the top left of the first picture, is that a gun emplacement AQT?

Maybe I'm alone on this, but I eat up just about every well done Naboo map out there, I guess I just like the urban, yet not overly urban, feel of those props + fountains + waterways and whatnot.

@Lucasfart: Thanks for catching the shadows issue. The benches have them now, but the trees won't because they would end up with blocky leaf shadows. As for randomized enviroments, I think I will include an early morning one and an evening one. Anything but nighttime Naboo! (Considering most of the Imperials have dark armor.)

@Yuke: Maybe. :wink: I'm still deciding whose side to tell the story in the campaign from, so there's a chance Archer might just embark on another mission again...

@Nate: As I had written in the first post and in my response to Yuke just now, there will be a campaign mode or two. Hopefully, that will distinguish this map from all other Naboo maps currently out there.

@AirspeedRedux: Yes, yes it is. It's one of eight Imperial turbolaser turrets on the map. They are merely props, but I'm hoping that with their presence (along with the new banners on the lamp posts) will bring a feeling of Imperial occupation in this Naboo town. The campaign mission will expand more on this.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments. :)

Awesome. :) With the blocky leaf shadows, couldn't you just do a big, flat shadow which doesn't really include individual leaves?

I'm glad you're going to add some different environments. I was actually thinking of suggesting an early morning one, as that's hardly ever done. It's totally up to you, but I think it could be awesome to have a really slight early morning mist, just to make it seem fresh. Also, on a harder note, what about a little dew? I'm not really sure if that's possible though...

Just curious - what will be the differences between morning and evening environments? And how far are you actually in the production of this thing?

I was actually using the .msh.option -hiresshadow to create the shadow since using a modeling program is not an option for me.

As for the difference between early morning and the evening, one will appear more blue and colder than the other, whereas one will appear more orange and warmer, among other things. And I cannot do dew.

As for the progress of the map, if I include a load screen and a mini-map and release it now, it would probably be pretty decent.
