I made some kind of wodden spiral stair for my tower. Maybe this can go to prefabs?

Thanks. Actually it should look old - but it simply won't. Too much sunlight i guess  8).

Fantastic! You've really got the sense of scale down. That's going to be one big map (I like big maps).

I am finally there!

Its not ready yet (will it ever be?), but i was able to put all pieces together and now have some kind of a beta-version.No more placeholders, no more missing tiles.

There is not one single light on on the whole map, thus no pic of the night version available, sorry. Also a tower is missing (on the upper right corner of the first pic), as is the dropship (next to the pool). The heli-hangar ( under the ufo ) is not completed and of course there are a lot of minor changes and fixes to be made. Also i think i will rework completely the west-coast (this is the one next to the main building), so it will fit better into the 256-grid of the rma theme. I think most of this will be done within two weeks.

Looks like it's coming along very nicely ShipIt. Willing to share your files at this stage or do you want to hold off for a bit?

I was that happy for the moment, I did not think about attaching the files for one single second. It should be no secret, so thanks for reminding me. Here we go.


@ H-Hour Maybe you could take a close look at maingate.map. I tried some more terrain-making there and ..., well i am still not sure about that.

Looking good. It's a big map with a lot of elements. What's the problem with the terrain-making in the main gate map? I didn't notice anything.

Check the attached images for some ideas on what's there.

@ H-Hour

Thank you very much for putting your time into this.

 terrain - if it is ok, fine
 lights - i have no idea about the lighting, because i did'nt anything about this yet, so i will just follow your advice and do as suggested (as this requires changes on the four main parts of the map it may take a while to find the time for that)
 long hallway - this problem occours all over the map, i will work over that, put in some more rooms and stuff to break that

The map did make some kind of step up today, as mattn added it to master.

Its time to say some special thanks to H-Hour and MCR. Thanks!
