Summary of Mapmodels additions to v1.2
#1
Ahead of the release here is a little teaser to everyone in general and to mappers in particular...

Since last version a few modifications have been made to the mapmodels folder significantly reducing it's size... Conversion to a lighter .md3 format, optimized compression of .jpg/.png files, new management of textures/skins getting us rid of redundant media.
The benefit of this saving allowed us to include extra content that a lot of you were asking for (sorry if we couldn't please everyone).


Please note that not all of these items are in the default_map_settings.cfg primary list, you'll also find some just underneath this list and need 'uncomment' before use (delete the two slashes //).

By Boeufmironton:
* makkE's whole "fence_chainlink" set has been redone from scratch by Boeufmironton so now the z-fighting bug is a thing of the past, they also now fit perfectly when placed side by side.

* Four new model have been added complete this set...
- "fence_chainlink_gate_down" //195 Broken gate laying on the floor
- "fence_chainlink_hor_post" //196 Horizontal fence post
- "fence_chainlink_open_gate" //197 Gate wide open
- "fence_chainlink_down" //198 Horizontal fencing

Note that just but a couple of models have minor bugs, there is no need for you to report them as they have already been fixed but weren't committed in time before the lot was compiled, they will thus be added to the next update.
You can still use them as you please as these bug fixes are just visual and won't affect coordinates or dimensions at all.

When will it be safe to resume work on this?

I followed the test map on the SVN all along, I'd say there are a lot of incredible and usefull mapmodels, some of them will be hard for mappers to make "ultra clean" clips, but in average, the work Cleaner has put in it and the render is just incredible. Also thanks to Boeufmironton (such an original name) and Toca.

I just have a single question, will the mapmodel-test map be in the official package, and if so, is that possible to make the same thing than Cube (the game), an "empty" map that shows all official mapmodels?

I too wished the Flip/Rotate feature was implemented within this release... Still of actuality tho

I'm not the only one behind all this, there's also Toca, Boeufmironton and a whole bunch of you for hints, inspiration and supportive enthusiasm.

About maps this is indeed a good opportunity for mappers of all levels to explore new possibilities this package adds to the game, I'm pretty sure we can expect some refreshing nice material popping out in a near future.

Thanks again for all the testing, bug reporting and all, that's the spirit I'd like to see a little more often ;)

tbh I'm not too sure if new_content map is/was supposed to stay in package, as a test map I was merely using it to do exactly that with no attention whatsoever paid to display aesthetics.
Now that you mention it I suppose that for the update we could eventually arrange that map for that exact purpose.



PS: I forgot to mention this one... For some reason mapmodel "makke/street_light" was using two slots (7 and 8) so I have modified one of them to a broken down version
