+1

Interesting map, kindles my expectations. I'd like to see a few close-ups and more screenshots in general, when the map's done.

As usual, I'd like all your feed-back on this - Too few land-masses in between? Would the addition of something improve this map considerably? Is the addition of the glow-in-the-dark word-art stupid?

i love the idea but, it kind of looks ugly (no offence) becuz the "islands" are just floaty upside-down pyramids not actual islands with neat rock formations beneath them that have a nice fanatasy feel :/ (if you want me too and i figure out how to make ctf maps i can make those islands look nice)

Stix, thanks for the feed-back. You are free to modify it however you deem fit. You can then re-submit the map here itself.

The screenshots are broken for me.

Hey all!

Made a new map, inspired by SkyWars. Consists of lots of small islands and some trees, build across the map to reach the enemy!
ANAND helped me out a lot with the barriers and stuff, thank you!

Queued to the list of maps to be reviewed! This will be a very interesting map to play on.

I submitted a similar map but lacked the time and patience, and ended up with a dull, boring, monotonous map with inverted pyramids; but I sure did learn a lot about WE while working with that map though, there's that.

For those wondering about the inclusion of a lava lake: While the lava doesn't fit with the green floating islands theme, that's the only way to bring back the fallen players to their base. The lake's 6 nodes deep, meaning that it's near impossible to build quick 1x1 towers from the lake bed.

UPDATE TO FLOATING ISLES

This update adds newly designed team bases by SG as well as a guard tower on each side of the map, also built by SG. See the images below!

+ Full view of the map

+ SG's Guard Tower

+ SG's Base Design

+ 2D Map

IMPORTANT NOTE: The base islands depend on ind_dirt and ind_dirt_with_grass, both of which are not yet implemented into ruben's master branch. see the status of the pull request https://github.com/rubenwardy/capturetheflag/pull/164. In the meantime, see my fork for the two nodes.

Magnifique! :D

Let me know when the map's ready for a review - this should be one of the first maps to be added...

I made a new CTF map called Desert Spikes. It contains high peaks, an ocean, and a large cavern system which extends from one side of the map to the other.
On CTF I am "WHYjustbecause".

spikes_92.conf:
Code: Select all
r = 75
name = Desert Spikes
h = 90
rotation = x
author = WHYjustbecause

You will need the .conf and the .mts for playing it.
EDIT: resubmitted. again.

I'm thinking of making another CTF map. Probably to be called Battleship.

It will consist of a rather large ocean, with pretty deep water, and just a few sand nodes at the bottom. It will be 1400~ boat theme

[list=Proposed ideas]
Each team will have a large Ship, which contains the flag.
A number of mid-sized ships.
Some small "rowboats" to fill up empty space.
A few islands for trees and ores.
Shipwrecks.
[/list]

I'd like to receive input on these propositions. I'm very open to ideas, I've only started prototyping ship sizes and shapes. If you want to help me build it search "camasia", "shipwreck", "ocean", "ctf", and "map" in the servers whenever you go online. I might just happen to be hosting a server.

Also, if you can make schematics, I might be able to give World-Edit access to trusted people.

Ruben Wardy: Can I use stairs?

Re: Maps for Capture the Flag mega-topic

Brian Gaucher: Sounds good. But do make sure that the resulting schematic isn't taller than 140 nodes and does not exceed a radius of 110 nodes. And yes, all the stairs and slabs from MTG's `stairs` mod can be used.

Re: Maps for Capture the Flag mega-topic

PostPosted: Sun Sep 30, 2018 01:24

For the schematic restrictions. I don't think 140 nodes tall is a problem, since if the water is 20 nodes, and ships were 30 nodes tall, the world will barely be 50 nodes, maybe 60 if the ships are tall.

Out of curiosity. But why the 110 node radius? Is this for performance reasons? Or to prevent making worlds too large? I might use a rather large world since the ships should have water between them. And the ocean is supposed to be wide. This ocean map will likely encourage an invasion approach to playing. Capturing boats and shooting players who are swimming. Trying to advance to the enemy flagship. While keeping many boats so they can catch the person who stole the flag.

When I read your post I was thinking 110 node diameter. 110 node radius should be fine.

Also, using stairs for the ships could make them look better, but stairs cannot be used for crafting. Should I then not use stairs, or use them sparingly ? (such as for places they greatly improve aesthetics, but not for 90% of the hull).

I think an ocean/ naval battle map would encourage interesting strategies.

Yes the 110 nodes is for performance reasons, but as you observed, it is more than sufficient for all sorts of maps.

I think the crafting mod should have a stairs -> cobbles and slabs -> cobbles recipes. It's completely up to you to decide about how much stairs there should be.

Looking forward to an interesting map!

The only issue with the sky maps with islands is that the bridge builders will be the first to die.

I believe I've fixed the issue with the .conf for my previous map "Monolithic mountain" https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=19729#p315772

Could one of the important people check it out and see if it works correctly?
The flags should be placed on a flat spot, with next to no protection. (let the players build that fort)

And should I remove the panes for the glass panes, solid glass or no glass should work in replacing it.

Review of "Monolithic Mountain"



  • Large region at the bottom of the map missing a floor.
  • Glass panes, and mese post lights aren't supported in CTF. Needs to be removed. Note that wool might be supported in the near future.
  • .conf: Err.... there are two red teams? ;) Also, there shouldn't be any spaces between the x, y, and z coords.
    e.g. team.1.pos = 38,56,15

    Code: Select all
    team.1 = red
    team.1.color = red
    team.1.pos = 38, 56, 15
    team.2 = red
    team.2.color = red
    team.2.pos = 51, 55, 82

Otherwise, the map is good to be deployed (possibly for further gameplay-related testing).

[Outdated] Review of Desert Spikes



  • .conf looks good.
  • The flags should directly be placed on the ground, no need to have separate cobblestone bases protruding from the ground.
  • There's a lot of grass on the surface along the middle barrier. Since grass is replaced by air in CTF, the resulting barrier will have holes and would end up looking ugly. Manually replace all the grass in the middle by ctf_map:ind_glass_red. WE would be of help here.
  • Gaping holes in the bottom. Sealing them up is necessary, and ctf_map:ind_glass could be used for that purpose. WE would help here too.

I think it should be noted that you have made quite a lot of strange design choices in the map, stuff that just doesn't really feel natural in a battlefield, like the hot air balloon, and both of the staircases. I suggest maybe heavily redesigning or just completely removing those. Also the little towers look a bit unappealing, I suggest redesigning them to look more like the towers in Xerox's post above.

Thank you very much for the reviews

I will go through my map and remove the accidental mese lamps, and the glass panes (these don't make much sense for survival). I'll replace staircases with ladders, and make both towers exactly the same (one was slightly larger).

For the towers, I'll also try to remove stairs and slabs to use blocks where applicable, blocks are much more useful in the game.
