I noticed some of the lag you guys were talking about today. It seems the most noticeable when you're playing on the ground and the starfighters zip by you on their flyer splines.
I'm positive that its just the nature of having tons of ai, tons of flyers, and tons of objects in one map. But that was kind of the point of this map; to push zero engine to its limits without making your computer blow up :lol:

And Anakin, sure, pm me those files and when i get some time ill see what i can do with them!

I think it lags because of the shadows. If there are in max. mode it lags a little bit. But If you set them a bit lower it never lags (for me).

I really enjoyed this map. Im really glad someone was able to find some of my elite crops assets and put them to great use. Upon entering a starfighter, it really did feel like this scene:

Especially if your the enemy team attacking the star destroyer. There is a good use of what was previously BF1 assets and it was very impressive to see them used in a pretty careful manner. I did get some lag here and there and it seeemd the view would sometimes try to build the geometry around the city at an un-consistant rate in the star fighters. Overall not a bad map at all and a interesting take on ground to space.

I love when you take off from the hangar and all the starfighters fly at your side in a row.

I have re-uploaded the updated version of this map to mediafire. Same link in the original post.
The modDB page is down because the re-upload needs to be authorized again. should be back up soon.
Not much has changed, but here is what has:

-Fixed turret localization.
-added some missing sounds and loaded the original sound for the sniper rifle. Also gave the arc170 and Actis interceptor better laser cannon sounds.
-added some secondary weapons for the heavy and support classes.
-added lowres models for the player models that were missing them.

---

Thanks Twinkey. I love your elite corps assets! You did a great job with them. Especially the female marskman with the Fleet trooper skin. There are alot of awesome assets available on swbfgamers (sereja's Starhopper and millenium falcon with landing animations for example.. will definitely be using those in a new map eventually). They need some love :mrgreen:

I can't download this map because Mediafire gives me an error message. I think it's the captcha (that doesn't even appear), because otherwise I can download finely from MediaFire. Could you please fix this somehow, or I should just wait for the other link to work?

This map has so much potential would've been cool to see forces on the ground invading the city while having the forces in the air and the platform!

Looking forward to what else you have in store mate!
Cheers

I would've loved to have forces on the ground with some tanks and walkers, but i feel that would've taken away from the fighter combat and the platform combat. Plus, i feel it would push this map over the edge and make it crash.

the next map ill do like this will be more along the lines of Taris: Sky High or the Battle of Teth, where i don't have to worry about terrain view distance bugs and have long mountains or skyscrapers stretching down until it blends with the skydome.

I just finished playing your map and I have to say this is the best large scale map I've ever seen. I loved taking off in the hangar and seeing the AI coming along as GeneralFacu mentioned, loved hearing the sounds of the fighters passing by as I fight on foot on the platform, I liked that the ground combat is quite difficult (at least it was for me), you have done a great job. :thumbs:

Has it happened to you that while fighting on the platforms, some BTL-B Y-Wings come and do a bombing run? It has happened to me haha, I was fighting against some droids and three Y-wings come in a row bombing the platforms. The map is well playable with AI :thumbs:

I downloaded this last night and played the hell out of it. Love this map, it's probably my new favourite in a while. Adds a completely different feel for a BF2 level. Everything about it is very "Star Wars".
Only thing I'll say is that when I was playing, I got down to 3 AI left on the enemy side and I absolutely could not find them for the life of me. Shuttles kept spawning that were highlighted red (indicating they were occupied) but destroying them didn't do anything. Checked the hangar and all that, still couldn't find them. Maybe it was just me not looking properly or the game being buggy (as we know bF2 can be), but yeah. Just thought I'd mention that to see if anyone else had that issue.
Either way though, amazing map. 10/10.

It happened to be when once when I played as rebels. The last AI were in the hangar of the Imperial/Republic destroyer.

Thanks guys :D
The flyers will usually try to target the turrets when enemy ai are using them so if your standing anywhere close to turret while someone is in it theres a good chance of you getting proton torpedoed :lol:
Yeah, if you play as the New Republic or CIS there is a good chance you might have some straggler ai hiding in the venator hangar, or sometimes inside the buildings.

Totally awesome map man. Flying around and seeing other fighters zooming past you with a crazy laser light show everywhere.. It's pretty cool. Seriously bro, good job. I did get some lag if I looked at the main platform/building on the ground level. My FPS would drop from 60 to 10-15. Pretty bad but my solution was to just stay off the ground. I've never had a Battlefront map lag on me before so I dunno what's going on.

Anyway good stuff all together. Really cinematic map imo

Hey Jazzmaster, thanks for leaving that comment telling me to turn up my distances and you are right, it looks ten times better than I would have thought! As for the vast majority of people saying they had "lag" problems, I experienced zero lag and my computer is not the "sharpest knife in the drawer." Well anyways thanks again for telling me about increasing the distances and and can not wait for your next big mod/map project!

The lag problems were because of the shadows. If you turn them to low or off the lag dissapears. I guess the engine just can't handle them.
