StargateWorlds V4 Brought to you by Sokar in co-operation with Flyboi and Votekick.
This map will hopefully include 7 Worlds. I have already had a problem with MAX_BRUSH_SIDES among other dumb engine errors, as the Source Engine was not made for this type of map. Source was not designed for Multiple Worlds, and this is not a Spacebuild map either, so unfortunately there will be a few things about this map you will have to put up with.
The reason i say Hopefully 7 worlds, as it only took 6 before i got the MAX error, most of the brush work in this map, is more detailed than that of V3, making the worlds number be brought down. To overcome this, Func_Details and Displacements are being used where possible, also Models are being used in areas aswell.
What To Expect from V4
Expect a balanced ammount of worlds, with plenty of detail and areas to explore, Although there are less worlds than V3, the Detail is more enhanced aswell as some size aspects. V4 will be used as a base for the StargateRP Gamemode.
WHAT I CAN NOT DO
Source was simply not designed for this kind of work. So, i can not implement 3D Skyboxes, I can not implement different Skybox Textures for each world, I can not make some Night, and others Day, it has been decided, that this will be set in Night time. I can not put to much detail in from this point, as i am getting the same problems as Flyboi did with V3.
Some of you may notice there are now changes from the original plan. The original plan was to create 9 worlds, from the Season 1-3 Era. This has now changed, as it would be pointless creating seperate maps for StargateRP (SG-1) Game mode. Instead, there will be one overall Stargate SG-1 map, and one overall Stargate Atlantis map and one overall Stargate Universe map. I am however considering creating a map, in the future that will not be coded, that will include places mainly from the Ori arc. They will include the Daedalus interior, Dakara, Ori Ship interior, SGC, Ori Village and a part of Atlantis.
Spawn World Tollana - This has been chosen as the spawn world, as the Tollan people are mainly Nuetral, and no weapons of any design apart from tollan operate here. This world will not be so large, and at this point there are no interior areas.
Tau’ri Spawn Stargate Command - Once you choose your character, if it is part of the SGC you will spawn in the Briefing Room. If your character dies you will spawn in the Infirmary.
Goa’uld Spawn World Tartarus - This is Anubis base, Tartarus, first seen in Season 7. This will be the Goa’uld spawn point.
Tokra Spawn Varesh - If you choose to be a Tokra, you will spawn here.
Sodan Warrior Spawn Sodan Homeworld - As seen in Season 9’s Babylon, if you select a Sodan Character, you will spawn here
Free Jaffa World Chulak - If you decide to be a Free Jaffa, you will spawn here
Heliopolis - A world that can be explored. This will not play any specific role, it is a world that no one will actually spawn on.
So far 5 worlds are more or less complete, These are the screenshots.
** A hatak i made :)**
Q: Can i be a beta tester
A: No you can’t, End of Discussion
Q: Why is the SGC and Tokra World the same as V3
A: Because, i had to remove extra parts of the SGC to avoid the MAX errors, and i am well overdue for producing this map
Q: This map is not entirely yours, yet you claim the credits and ratings
A: Ratings are over rated, i don’t care about ratings. As for “Claiming the Credit” i have posted the participation of Flyboi and Votekick, and both of them are fine with the content i am using for this map, and ultimately it is being made for a Gamemode, which me and flyboi are currently in, and Votekick is making the models on request for this map.
Q: I wanted more worlds
A: That is not exactly a question, more a request, but you are not going to get more than 7 worlds, you don’t like it, don’t play it.
Q: Release Date?
A: Around the 29th of August
