  3. Map Models - Image Reference Library for JK2/JKA

    JK2/JKA Map Models (v1.0)
    Image Reference Library
     
    by Szico VII
    May 13th 2013
     
    =====================
    CREATED BY Szico VII
    MSN: szicovii@gmail.com
    E-Mail: szicovii@gmail.com
    AIM: Szico VII
    http://www.jkhub.org
    =====================
     
    Map Models - Screenshot Reference Library (v1.0) for JK2/JKA
    Size: 51.78MB
     
    ===========
    Description
    ===========
     
    This is a complete compressed (.zip) file containing screenshot references of all the JK2 and JKA model assets,
    located in the base/models/map_objects folder. This should make it easier for modders of the game to browse
    the models and decide which to use without manually loading each and every model in radiant to check.
     
     
    You should unzip the entire library to your computer so you can utilise your OS's inbuilt thumbnail viewer.
     
    ===========
    Notes
    ===========
     
    - Some models are broken - i.e they are missing texture assets. These are clearly labelled.
    - Some models are for JK2 only, so you will need the JK2 asset files for the models to display correctly.
    - The above also applies to JK3.
    - Some screenshots were taken ingame to better illustrate their ingame appearance, so if they appear
    differently in radiant do not be alarmed.
    - Any model with a _b suffix in its name was designed for use as a misc_model_static. It is otherwise identical
    to its normal counterpart, so there are no screenshots of these models.
     
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IMPORTANT!!!!
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I spent a great deal of time compiling this library together so please leave credit if you find it useful in your projects!
    You may not redistribute these images or use them for anything other than personal use only.
     
    NO ELEMENTS OF THIS FILE CAN BE RIPPED!

  5. Chicago Streets

    Author
    Szico VII
     
    MAP Version : Chicago Streets (Version 1)
    New Textures: Yes
    New Music: Yes
    MAP Type : FFA, TFFA, Duel,Capture the Flag.
     
    BOT ROUTING: Yes
    ===============================
    Personal Notes: I felt sorry for Jo players who no longer get custom maps, so i decided to release my old Darkforces Streets Map for it. However, this isn't just a port, i completely rebuilt the whole thing, with new knowledge and stuff, and the FPS is fine now I added more areas for the JO version, and no, chances are this wont be out for JA, except if I do a winter version sometime - I already released a Final remember?
     
    ===============================
    Map Installation : Unzip the contents of the zip into your Jedi Outcast/GameData/Base directory, and you're all set to go. Then choose 'Chicago Streets' from the map list.
    ===============================
    UPDATES from Jedi Academy Version:
     
    - FPS should be smooth throughout the whole map now, I've learned a lot since the first version for JKA. It might lag a little when doors leading to other areas are open, but they should close automatically
     
    - All oversized areas should now be the proper size
     
    ===============================
    Map Play : Simply go into your multiplayer menu and select 'Chicago Streets' from the map list.
    ===============================
     
    This map is my fourth MP map. There are loads of hidden locations and a few extras for those poor Jo players, sniper points, e.t.c. So have fun!
     
    Programs Used: Adobe Photoshop 7, GTK Radiant 4.0, q3Map2, Editing Tools.

    The camera angles and cutscenes are on the scruffy side, if anybody knows how to fix the camera with the second cutscene, please email me.
     
    There are no objectives, as of yet. Im still working on it.
     
    Much credit to the makers of dotf.pk3 for about 5 of their textures.
     
    Programs Used: Adobe Photoshop, Jk2 Radiant, Editing Tools.
     
    Also, huge thanks to all at gamingforums.com especially GothiX!

  7. Map Models Pack #01

    // Map Models Pack #01
    // ====================
    // by Szico VII
    // 20th July 201
    ======================
     
    Converted for JK2/JK3 by Szico VII
    MSN: szicovii@gmail.com
    E-Mail: szicovii@gmail.com
    http://www.jkhub.org
     
     
    Assorted Map Models Pack (v1.0)
    =======================
    Installation : Extract the contents (.pk3) into your Jedi Academy/GameData/Base directory, and you're all set to go!
     
    You will need to include this readme.txt and .pk3 file in any work you release which utilises these files.
     
     
    Copyright information
    ======================
    You may use any of the materials in this pack freely in your own work, as long as you include credit to myself and the original author (if listed here) in your readme.txt
    You may modify and redistribute these assets as you see fit for your work, with the above provisions.
     
     
    Information
    =======================
    Although some of these models were created by myself using Radiant, to the best of my knowledge, the vast majority were made by 3DRegenerator, and are free to download from http://tf3dm.com/3d. You are free to use any of these models for personal use provided they are not for financial gain. Please give credit to myself and 3DRegenerator if you decide to use these models in your map. This file will need to be included in your release pk3 as well as your own assets.
     
    A great deal of work has gone into converting, re-texturing, creating shaders and fixing compatibility issues with all of these models - I hope people find them useful. JKA does not have many "prop" or "real-life" models
    available as part of the default packaging, so these models should be useful for anyone attempting to create a more realistic modern environment.
     
    If anyone would like to contribute any models created by themselves, either for JK3 or in radiant as a .ase file, please contact me if you would like them converted to md3 and put into any future releases.
    Any requests should be directed to me or other communtiy members at www.jkhub.org
     
    Many thanks,
    Szico VII.

    BlueIce Nightfall
     
    Probably the map I am most proud of - it's been a long time coming, I just wish Id finished it several years ago when the community was
    still more active, but better late than never! Think of this as a sequel to BlueIce Twilight, its set in the same world after all but
    this is a more dense settlement, yet cozy and warm, away from the harsh weather of the world.

    ATLANTICA_RPG
    ==============
    This map is the RPG version of the map, which doesn't have any interactive NPC's to reduce server load and stress, but contains extra scripting.
    This map contains the keycard system as well as the toolbox repair system and the credits system. So, if you want to play with these features, load this map!
     
    ATLANTICA
    =========
    This map is the core(basic) map which does contain interactive NPC's but none of the advanced scripting found in the RPG version. This is for players
    who desire a more FFA-themed experience, or clans who do not wish to play with the RPG features because they have their own mods which they can use instead.
     
     
    ==========
    Known Bugs
    ==========
     
    - In the long staircase with the rocky walls and the view of the ocean, you can see a small glimpse of another section of the map when looking
    upwards out of the window.
     
    - If you die/disconnect when participating in the Stealth VR training sessions the scripting system which governs these minigames will break
    and the map may need to be restarted. Of course, there's no way to die in here unless you kill yourself, so this is a very simple bug to avoid.
    Server admins can teleport/noclip into a broken VR training room and complete/fail the training to restart the scripts without needing a map restart.
     
    - The elevator consoles can get out of sync with the elevator itself, but it was either this or make the consoles crush through the player, which isn't
    desireable. They will always fall back in sync, and only go out of sync rarely when blocked by the player.
     
    ==========
    CREDITS
    ==========
     
    - RoboPhread, Lugormod coder and the biggest inspiration for the extra scripting I did in this map. He's the brains behind most of the really cool stuff,
    like the keycode doors and the passworded room. Without you Robo, this map wouldn't be what it is today. I'm sure you'll be unimpressed by my extensive
    use of unnecessary target_scriptrunners, the position of the lift and my less-than-liberal use of parms, but the job got done in the end
    Thank you so much!
     
    - Xa'o Zalei for helping with the design, concept work and theme progression throughout the development of this project! I orignally wanted to blow you up
    with my Death Star for 'persuading' me into making this map for you, but in the end it was a fantastic experience for me, and you know that this map
    would also not exist without your tireless input and contribution. Thanks!

    I would like to personally thank Szico VII for all of his help the past year and a bit making this map.
    He is a stand up guy and a wonderful person. I asked him way back if he would make a small map on a small star Wars planet
    and it turned into one of the best maps I have ever seen for JKA. So for that, thank you for everything Szico. You are
    amazing.

    Atlantica - Source Files
    ======================================
     
    These source files provided are for learning and reference purposes only. No elements may be used/ripped or otherwise altered for released materials.
    You may do whatever you want with them provided the edited materials are not distributed. If you wish to use any of this material in your own work please
    get permission from me and/or the various authors of any included models.
     
    INSTALLATION:
    ==============
     
    IMPORTANT: You must have the Atlantica.pk3 in your base folder, or the files within it extracted to base.
     
    - Use the WINZIP Wizard to extract all files within this zip to your "Jedi Academy/GameData/base" folder. Here is what will be installed.
     
    - Editor Textures
    - Atlantica (.map) files
    - ASE Models
    - Map Scripts
    - New MP Entity Definitions used by map. (by Darth G)
     
    EDITORS NOTES:
    ===============
     
    - Skybox Lighting. Any shader skybox lighting applied to one sky shader will be applied to every sky shader in the map. Therefore when using multiple skies,
    only apply a skylight to one shader, or the lighting will build up exponentially. In this map, the sky lighting is actually not applied to the sky shaders,
    but to the atlantica_hexagonal shader. This is because if the actual sky shader emitted the light, it would get blocked by the patches with the hexagonal
    window texture applied to them when compiling with -patchshadows.
     
    - YOU WILL NEED THESE SOURCE FILES TO CREATE CUSTOM ADMIN PASSWORDS FOR YOUR SERVER.
     
    - Don't try adding anything to the map to make it bigger, or you'll get a MAX_MAP_VERTS error pretty quickly, I'm at the cusp of hitting it as it is.
     
    - The unused ASE models were originally in the map but had too many verts so were converted into textures. Feel free to use them in smaller maps though.
     
    - The reason players spawn at the top of the map and are then teleported to various locations is so they always activate a script when they respawn that
    resets their PARMS so they lose their credits, keycodes e.t.c. This script can only be activate when respawning and not during normal play, as it would
    have been if the triggers had just been over normal spawnpoints.
     
    - The 10 switches PARM5 is set into the bar/restaurant door, and is simply acting as a dummy entity for this parm to be set during the script.
     
    - Scripts which set parms on the player (used for keycodes/credits e.t.c) must have the 'run on activator' flag checked on the target_scriptrunner.
     
    - Compiling: There are several specific command lines which must be included in order for this map to compile. My final compile line was:
     
    (BSP) -meta, -vis, -light -fast -approx 64 -filter -lomem -patchshadows
     
    Anything above this in terms of trying to increase compile quality can result in a nasty bug throughout the map which I think is resulted to some kind of
    maximum lightmap error.
     
     
    Enjoy!

    IMPORTANT INFO FOR SERVER HOSTERS:
    -------------------------------------
    THIS MAP CAN TAKE IN EXCESS OF 5 MINUTES TO LOAD FOR THOSE ON OLDER COMPUTERS. THEREFORE ANY SERVER WISHING TO RUN THIS MAP MUST HAVE 'SV_TIMEOUT' SET TO A VALUE OF AT LEAST 1000 (Or else clients that take longer than 2mins to load will get kicked automatically)
     
    =====================================
    Map Installation : Extract the contents of the .zip (Midgar v3.0.pk3) into your Jedi Academy/GameData/Base directory, and you're all set to go! This automatically installs all vehicles, models and weapons which come with the map.
     
    Seperate Installations: - The One-Winged Jetpack.pk3 file should be placed into your base folder if you wish to use the new jetpack and teleporter effects. - The First Sword.pk3 file file should be placed into your base folder if you wish to have Cloud's AC first sword as a weapon.
    =====================================
     
    IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING VIDEO CARD MEMORY:
     
    If you experience unusually low FPS throughout the map and especially at the bottom of the tower by the green glow, it means your video card is at its maximum texture memory. Here is the settings you should use in Video options (Texture Quality) depending on the amount of texture memory your video card has:
     
    512MB - Very High
    256MB - High
    128MB - Medium/High
    64MB - Low

    get permission from me and/or the various authors of any included models.
     
    INSTALLATION:
    ==============
     
    IMPORTANT: You must have the Midgar v3.0 pk3 in your base folder, or the files within it extracted to base. You can download the map here:

    https://jkhub.org/files/file/212-final-fantasy-vii-midgar/
     
    - Use the WINZIP Wizard to extract all files within this zip to your "Jedi Academy/GameData/base" folder. Here is what will be installed.
     
    - Editor Textures
    - Map Models
    - Map Scripts
    - Map Shaders
    - 64 Vehicles Extension (by Hatrus)
    - New MP Entity Definitions used by map. (by Darth G)
     
    EDITORS NOTES:
    ===============
     
    - Easygen files are included, and can be found in the Easygen/save folder. These should be moved to wherever Easygen is installed.
     
    - The map which people play on is "midgar_v3". The other maps included are just the seperate areas which I made individually. Some ASE Models are also
    included.
     
    - A skybox script is included, under scripts/midgar_v3/skybox.ibi Running this script in a map will take 6 skybox images from a ref_tag with targetname
    "cam1". This is how I created all of the skyboxes seen in Final Fantasy VII - Midgar v3.0
     
    - Skybox Lighting. Any shader skybox lighting applied to one sky shader will be applied to every sky shader in the map. Therefore when using multiple skies,
    only apply a skylight to one shader, or the lighting will build up exponentially.
     
    - Compiling: There are several specific command lines which must be included in order for this map to compile. My final compile line was:
     
    (BSP) -meta -notjunc -vis -light -fast- samples 2
     
    Anything above this in terms of trying to increase compile quality results in a nasty bug throughout the map which I think is resulted to some kind of
    maximum lightmap error.The meta line, -notjunc is needed to prevent compile crashing at the 'Create T-Junctions stages.'
     
    ###########
    BOTROUTING: If you feel like creating new botroutes because you have added new areas, you will need to use a seperate map with less entities in it and then
    ########### rename the botroute file afterward, or else your game will crash after placing about 100 or so waypoints. The map I used is included, under the
    name "midgar_v3_botroutes.map"
     
    Enjoy!

  18. NeoTokyo

    Description
     
    NeoTokyo, site of Timesplitters 2, was the subject of this map. Up front, I wish to note that I've never played that particular game, and thus my comments have no bearing on its accuracy to the game's rendering. Only on what I see... and man, what I see looks nice.
     
    With maps like these coming out, why we MR types don't follow up on our Forum announced releases is beyond me. Must be too lazy, I guess. Anyhow...
     
    Architecture
     
    Solid. Solid. Solid.
     
    Oh, and it's solid, too. Some may argue that it's blocky as well, but I don't agree to that at all. I may not be a master of the Patch Mesh like some, but I am known to love them to death... and I also know when they dont really belong. This is one of the maps they don't belong in - at least not in large numbers.
     
    The setting is urban... where, traditionally, architecture tends toward the blocky and squared off, with the odd curve here and there for contrast. This map does exactly that. Details are there to be seen, and curves are there to accentuate, but they aren't overbearing in any fashion. As it should be.
     
    Numerous different mapping techniques can be seen in this map. From the old-style func_train (an over-head monorail car that zooms back and forth) to func_usables on timers (working traffic lights and Walk/Don't Walk signs), Szico shows a great grasp of JA entities.
     
    Especially for a 3 and a half week build, this map will quickly grab your attention... and it'll definately show you a trick or two.
     
    What little I did find off was more from the aesthetic stance. And one problem I *suspect* but couldn't really confirm.
     
    My first note is on scale - this can make or break some maps. Some items, when constructed, simply have to be in scale to the player. For the most part, Szico has this firmly in hand. However, there are two things that grabbed my attention.
     
    The screens in some of the window displays on the main road (a nice touch, BTW) are either computer screens or TVs. Either way, theres a scale problem. If they are screens, they are far too large (unless 24" Computer Screens are now the vogue in NeoTokyo). If they are TVs, they are far too small (unless Retro-Sized TVs are in vogue).
     
    Second is the stairways. The steepness I don't mind... some cultures (The Dutch come to mind) build them that way to take up less space. However, the actual SIZE of the upstep is a bit of an issue. They just look too large.
     
    And the part I can't confirm? My pet peeve - clip brushes on stairs. These are so steep that I can't really tell if they are there or not. I suspect not, since when going slow I get the feeling I'm stepping on each one individually, but I can't really confirm it due to the angles involved... so Szico - you get the benefit of the doubt. No points off for you.
     
    Score : 9 of 10
     
    Texture & Lighting
     
    Here, this map really shines - no pun intended.
     
    The texture work is simply amazing. Custom textures and shader work are all over the place, priniciply in two forms: The large number of custom signs (some of which even change color) and the textures used for ground cover, which have a wet sheen and env-maps to simulate the semi-reflection you would get off such streets.
     
    It's all great, and adds a TON of atmosphere.
     
    The remainder of the texturing is spot on, with no overstretching or inappropriately placed textures at all. While some appear to be stock, it's really hard to tell which ones are (to my eye, anyhow) as they all seem to fit the scene perfectly.
     
    Lighting only serves to accentuate the texturing and the architecture - exactly as it's supposed to. It's simply superb... and that's all I have to say about that.
     
    Score : 9 of 10
     
    Level Flow
     
    This map is designed for all of the major gameplay types: FFA, TFFA, Duel, Power Duel, and CTF. That's a tall order for most maps, as they all have different flow reliances. FFA and TFFA require that there be plenty of room and a circular nature of some kind. Duel and Power Duel require that you be able to find and attack your foe(s) in relatively quick order. And CTF... well, I'm no CTF expert, but I know it takes multiple routes to and from the flags on multiple elevations if possible.
     
    Yet somehow, this map seems to have gotten all of this into one map. Impressive... just as the rest of the map has been.
     
    I only found one seeming dead end, in the sewer area near a force-field enclosed area. I am pretty sure it ISN'T a dead end... I just couldn't figure out how to open it with that saber wielding maniac behind me (you KNOW I had to work him in there somehow...). Something a bit more obvious to indicate how it opens may help here. Or maybe, I'm just blind.
     
    Score : 8 of 10
     
     
    Fun Factor
     
    The eye candy and attention to detail alone make this map fun and impressive - most servers should probably have this on the rotation. For those keeping score, that's a first recommendation for that from me. I loved this - and I just don't normally say that about a map that isn't mine. (OK, I'm biased - sue me.)
     
    Score : 9.5 of 10
     
     
    Extras
     
    The music is the stand-apart extra in this map - I have no idea what it is, where it came from, or anything else about it, but it fits. In some ways, it reminds me of one of the themes in Fifth Element (though obviosuly, this isn't from that movie.) It's quiet enough to remain in the background for the most part, but loud enough to provide even more atmosphere.
     
     
     
    Overall
     
    Amazing. Simply amazing for a 3 and a half week build. Most mappers won't be able to map at this quality level in that kind of time. Szico, you're setting a high bar - and that can't help but be good. Superb job - PLEASE keep it up.
     
     
    Score: 9/10

    Story
    It is night time on a vast snowy plain. The barely audible squeaks and shuffles of nocturnal creatures going about the nightly business of surviving are the only sounds breaking the heavy silence. On all sides the plain is surrounded by mountains, their icy peaks glowing hauntingly in the moons cold reflected light. The plain is flat, and immaculately white, only the rare track of an animal disturbing the perfectly smooth surface. A perfectly clear sky hangs above the scene, an untold number of stars casting their pinpricks of light onto the planet, under the watchful eye of the ice blue moon. However, despite the clear sky and near silence on the plain, the atmosphere is far from a serene one. The air is dense with apprehension. It is as if the entire planet has taken a deep inward breath, as if every mountain, creature and tree on it is waiting. And have been waiting a long time. Suddenly a blue light appears above the mountains, moving ever more quickly towards the plain. It is immediately followed by another light, orange and heading on exactly the same path. They can already be heard, two engines of slightly different pitches, both whining and straining as the ships hurtling towards the planet try to outrace each other. The nature of the race is not clear, until a bright red bolt comes flying past the first ship and into the ground, the first ship only just moving out of the way in time to avoid having one of its wings ripped away.
     
    Inside the cockpit of the first ship is a man in a simple robe. Far from looking panicked by his pursuer, and the alarm sirens around him signalling the damage already done to the ship, he has his eyes closed and a look of absolute concentration and focus is upon his face. A bladeless hilt on his belt confirms the profession that his ability to dodge the laser bolts flying past suggests. The Jedi guides the ship close to the ground and speeds parallel to it, close enough that the movement of the air around his ship kicks up a spray of snow around it. The movements of the ship are precise and smooth as it evades each potentially lethal bolt. The mans eyes open briefly to assess the distance of the oncoming mountain range, and when he closes his eyes again there is a clear sense of urgency in his expression. he looks desperately as if he is trying to remember something, his eyelids now flickering as his eyes move rapidly behind them.
     
    The mountain range speeds ever closer, with neither ship slowing down. No through it is available, even for the most skilful Jedi pilot. It is a wall of ice and stone waiting expectantly for its victims. The Jedi's ship adjusts direction slightly to point towards the base of the nearest mountain, and bears down, only twitching off course ocassionally to allow each laser to fly past. Just before it flies into the mountain, inside the cockpit the Jedi's face breaks into a smile, eyes still shut, and as he turns the ship sharply upwards, for a brief second his expression changes to a grimace of extreme effort and concentration. In that moment, the pursuing ship fires a single bolt before veering wildly and slamming into the mountain, vaporised instantly. The Jedi moves to dodge the bolt just a second too late, the supreme effort taken to dominate the pursuers mind clearly having an effect on his reactions. The outer half of his left wing is sheared off and falls away into the mountains.
     
    Struggling to maintain control of the ship, the Jedi scans the mountain range for a place to land. As the ships altitude starts dropping sharply, the Jedi spots a small gap in the mountains ahead. He has no choice but to aim for it and hope it contains a suitable crash landing site, and steers the ship towards it, fighting to keep it on course. The struggling ship just manages to clear the last mountain peak before the break in the range, and as the pilot looks ahead of him his jaw drops. As he makes the final preparations for his crash landing, he finally understands the voices that drew him here. He closes his eyes as the ship hits the ground, and skids across the ice and snow into a tree. The last thing he sees from his cockpit before slipping into unconciousness is figure upon a huge landing pad, robes billowing, sillouheted by the moon.
