#538 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion

Thanks as always, HOI! I will add those to my list of things to fix for RC11 after this season.

And here I thought that's what the info_player_start was for. I think it gives you a camera under the arch at mid, still... lol. Thanks!

Look at you upping the game by using brackets in your title instead of parenthesis. A visionary in both post and map design!

#536 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion

cp_logjam_rc10a: https://tf2maps.net/downloads/cp_logjam.3835/download?version=17457

No screens, here are the small bugfixes:
-fixed a hole in the floor on mid
-fixed a hole in the mid bridge ceiling
-removed an extra set of lights above logroom's exit on mid
-raised the little roof over the upper lobby exit to make it less obvious you can't stand on it
-made it so you can't stand on the roof lips of the tall buildings on mid (more clipbrushes misaligned by less than 1 hu... don't decompile maps, kids)
-fixed a broken displacement you could stand on at red 2nd
-adjusted displacement ground in front of spire
-playerclipped literally all of choke to hopefully eliminate a weird glitch

#532 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion
TwiggyHyce i have a few questions :

why do you make a doorway like this if you noclip the small ledge? It's misleading.

what does it bring to you to make these many roofs? There are other instances of that on the map, and you're not the only one who makes that.

Lol, sniped me as I was making the rc10 post. I think your comment about the roof is fair enough. Why so many? It's kind of the TF2 style, IMO. The lowest one is a bit misleading, it looks like you should be able to stand on it.

These things will be getting changed for the next version of the map, I'm going to be doing a lot of out of bounds detailing / last / 3d skybox detailing etc..

Note - we have found a few things already on RC10 that probably merit RC10f:
- There's a hole in the map by the sheds on mid.
- There's a hole in the map underneath mid on the underside of the rock arch
- There's 2 sets of lights / floating light entities above logroom's exit on mid.

If anyone else finds anything gamebreaking - let me know, I'll fix them and put RC10F out to fix them in a little bit. Waiting to see if we come up with anything else at this time.

I've also got a list of nitpicky detail stuff for RC11 - anything else related to that is fine too but the focus for RC10F will be gamplay for ozfortress and ETF2L.

#528 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion

Thank you for linking that. I've seen that and Silentes' feedback about the map, and I've got good things brewing for the offical RC10. Hopefully early next week (mon/tues) release. Feel free to check my stream when I'm on working on the map if you want to see what's up.

The plan is essentially streamlining things - be it props, splash, clipping, buggy ramps, stupid crap you can hit your head on, etc.

I have spoken with the ETF2L admins and you will be running RC10 if it is released prior to being in season.

#27 ETF2L Season 32 announced in News

Look at that! More objective proof that logjam is better than badlands and granary.

Man, I need to stop with the snarky jabs. Oh well. I do think Kaidus' point regarding badlands getting doublevoted is a very valid point. I know Ozfortress will be keeping cp_logjam in this season, I certainly hope that ETF2L chooses to add it based on these polls. There's a ton of bugfixes coming in RC10, which I should have out next week, so it would be cool if we could run RC10 as well.

#10 Ideas around the map pool concept in Map Discussion

I keep hearing all of these great things about koth maps, but:

I cannot get people to play koth_waterton. I didn't get terribly much feedback when ozfortress ran it in their midsummer cup #1, and for the most part the feedback that I have gotten is that it's fun to play. I'm more than willing to work on it, but it doesn't feel like the interest is really there.

#525 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion

It's definitely something that's been said before. Unsure of how big of a problem it is, really. I do have a plan to re-structure cave's connection on mid to tighten things up if necessary.

#4 Ideas around the map pool concept in Map Discussion

The pool of comp mappers is definitely not as big as it used to be (not too shocking, just like playerbase), though with the support of people like Lucrative working through new maps, we should definitely have plenty to choose from...

Let's think about this. What are the current maps in rotation?
ESEA (S30 pool):
cp_process
cp_granary_pro
cp_badlands
cp_gullywash
cp_snakewater
cp_sunshine
cp_metalworks
cp_propaganda
koth_product

ETF2L (S31 pool, S32 being voted on now):
cp_process
cp_granary_pro
cp_prolands
cp_gullywash
cp_snakewater
cp_sunshine
koth_product

ozfortress (S23 pool, S24 TBD last I've heard):
cp_process
cp_logjam
cp_prolands
cp_gullywash
cp_snakewater
cp_sunshine
koth_product

So, every league uses the following:
cp_process
cp_gullywash
cp_snakewater
cp_sunshine
cp_bad(pro)lands

With the outliers that are not used by every league being these (theoretically good enough for league play, maybe not universally liked / etc.):
cp_logjam
cp_propaganda
cp_metalworks
cp_granary_pro

There are also a few maps recently used in leagues that have dropped out that could be potentially subbed back in:
cp_reckoner
cp_cardinal

We also have the following up-and-coming maps that are looking really good from Lucrative's testing (please let me know if I've missed any!):
cp_kalinka
cp_alamosa
cp_bluff
cp_workflow
cp_mist
cp_craneway
koth_ordinance

I know that at least a few of those have seen recent cup play and are being updated relative to feedback - keep your eyes and mind open regarding them.

I think there's more than an ample pool of maps to try and switch one out here and there. No, the up and coming maps aren't going to play like process/snake/gully/sunshine right off the bat. I don't think they'll be entirely aids either, though. If you want the variety and you want more maps, there's options out there.

#523 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion

christ

For those wondering, "Hyce, how can your map possibly have so many tiny ass cracks in it?"

The short story is my hard drive died, so I had to decompile the map to get the .vmf file back (should have backed it up, live and learn...) which did strange things to my displacements (like make them 1 unit thick and ALMOST lined up to the grid....) and as I'm fixing crack A, it makes crack B show up. I'll probably just have to sit down and go through every brush... yikes.

Thank you for continuing to post this sort of stuff though. I think I've found a better strategy for clipping the rockwalls that I tried to fix the choke spot, so I'll be working on that crap in cave. I am going on to work week now (I work 3-4 days a week 13-14 hours a day...) so you probably won't see pre3 / rc10 official until maybe Sunday or so. If anyone finds any more dumb things inbetween now and then, let me know!

Thanks!
