About This File

A simple island map with palms and bushes. I had really little time to work on it these months, so it's not as fully developed as I would have wanted, but I really wanted to bring out something for the contest and overall I feel like it's a nice map to relax to the sweet music of Manaan and the sounds of ocean waves. The most glaring issue is the lack of any lighting (the island shadows are baked on the terrain model), and the trees don't have collisions. It's really mostly for eyecandy with all the trees and for sniping from treacherous bushes or unsuspecting horsetails.

An issue I can't really fix is with tree LODs, which are broken in singleplayer.

I also included the original .map file, in case anyone wanted to mess around with it.

To install, unpack the file sc_island.pk3 into your GameData/Base folder. To uninstall, remove the file sc_island.pk3 from the GameData/Base folder.

Feel free to use any of the trees and bushes in this map - that's also a reason I wanted to bring this out, in case anyone was interested.

Did you make this in blender or something?

Yes, I basically rendered a high resolution heightmap and baked it onto a much less complex version of the terrain, then I exported it as .md3 and completed it in Radiant with palms and bushes.

Very nice! Would like to see what could be done with this if you had more time, or were able to make it larger, adding mountains, hills, cliffs, or other types of flora sprites.

Interesting concept of using 2d Sprites for LODs of the trees - on modern hardware, the pop-in and -out of these seems to cause more FPS drops than straight away rendering all trees at highest LOD using:
 

r_lodscale 20
r_lodbias 0 or -2

 

It gives a nice jungle impression. If you could update this map with a bit higher resolution terrain (using .map exporter from blender instead of .md3 with autoclipping) you can give this island a nice few animal / vehicle NPCs maybe?

 

Hope you can fix up some clip brushes for the trees eventually 🙂

Map got some crazy vibes due to the skyshader and water.

It is a neat concept however it feels like it is in it's concept stage rather than a completed map ready for submission to a competition. I hope to see improvements on the map in the future.
