[W.I.P] NightFire Map Pack
« on: July 19, 2012, 09:22:49 am »

FOR RELEASED MAPS, GO HERE! http://forums.geshl2.com/index.php/topic,7558

Greetings, Community!
As maybe few of you might have heard several months back, A guy named 2Goldenbullet$ was currently working on converting NF maps, Models and textures into Goldeneye Source. His primary concern however is Nightfire, So he stopped.
I talked with him for a while and asked him if he could send me over the files he currently had, He agreed. Since I personally loved NF and I thought that this project could get somewhere, I started working on the project.


So far, It's quite a mess. Corrupted props, Messed up entities and a multitude of bugs here and there, But of course, It's a decompile from a different engine, I can't expect much. :P
But on the bright side, I'm getting somewhere quite plausible, A release might eventually come sooner than I think.
A few maps will have minor additions to the original to balance gameplay in GE:S.

I plan on getting at least 5 maps done. Unfortunately, Too many props are broken and a few maps won't be able to see the light of the day because of that.
I currently have two maps that are stable and nearly completed, Only a few tweaks here and there left to do, Including ones you guys might spot. Here are a few screenies.

nf_power :











nf_maintenance :











I'd love constructive criticism from you guys and see what you think so far about those.
Cheers!

Having never actually played Nightfire before I don't think I'd be the best person to offer some criticism or advice to you properly, but the screenshots of your 2 maps look pretty good so far. Keep up the good work and the best of luck with the rest of your project!

Looks very good- if you are making more nightfire maps can you recreate Fort Knox or Zykosky's Cavier Factory (both are in the Nightfire PC Version)

but i have to say that Nf_power looks really good- bright and open enough for Frag attacks
and NF_matenance looks promising too- cant wait to try out the map

Thanks for the support people, I really appreciate it!

@Rick Astley = Just to let you know, I am not recreating those maps from scratch, Those are the map files directly ripped from Nightfire, But all of them has a multitude of bugs, Obsolete entities/props and incorrect lighting.

The Caviar Factory is the map I am currently working on, However, It was very broken, Took me hours to fix the crusher under the trapdoor, But I got it working after about a hundred recompiles, Hah.

This map isn't too GE:S friendly, Notably because of all the grappling hooks that helped navigating around the map in NF, Thus, All access to the water has been blocked, And ladders/bridges will be added to several areas to suit GE:S gameplay.
I still have a lot of work to do on it, I should be done within this week though.
As for Fort Knox, I have looked at it quickly and it doesn't look too bad, I probably will look further into it when I'm done with Caviar.

I still think it would be a good idea to replace the textures with some higher resolution ones and possibly replace the props with GES stuff. Might take a while, might not look 1:1 in some cases but the overall improvements will make these maps more enjoyable.

Think of it like what we did with the GES classic maps. They still look and feel very close to the original N64 map, but the mappers used high res textures instead of 32x32 or 64x64 blurry lowres textures and improved lightning.

I don't see why you couldn't do the same, maybe with a little help from other ppl of the community.

That is a very good idea Kraid, Most textures are already 128/196 (196 ones has been extended to 256 but kept their original resolution) though, But a few does look quite blurry.
Problem is, I personally have no experience in texturing, But a lot of already existing textures in GE:S files could replace a few of those and still look like a re-creation. If anyone is willing to involve themselves in this project, That would be great.

Several props have been already replaced with GE:S ones due to NF props being broken in Hammer though, But I do believe I can replace more, Such as barrels and crates.

4.2 release will feature many new high quality props and textures (many of them shipping out with a resolution of 1024 x 1024). they truly did a great job. and if you have any questions, feel free to mail me.

I like them, looking good, but like Kraid said, make use of GE:S props and textures and they'll look great.


Oh... And I prefer the new picture Emilia. ;-)

Sounds good Cy, Thanks for the feedback everybody!
I'll still be doing production on other maps while the wait for 4.2 and post updates once in a while about the progress on everything else and which maps could be released.

Looking very good but you really need to use light_spot entities for most of the lights! It will look much better than omi-lights.

Contact me on steam if you want some pointers with using them.

@Mangley = Maintenance's lighting is about 95% composed of light_spot entities, And power has about 25% of them. Maybe I haven't done them correctly, Or is a fast compile responsible maybe?

Hmm.. what I said was mainly directed at power. Those lights along the walls near the ground. light_spot works well for that type of lighting.

Perhaps it's just the lightmap resolution that is making me think this?

I actually did the power conversion and dm_office and part of austria. that's when i gave the project over to to namajnaG. the reason the lights on power are like that is because the original used fade values that don't exist in source, so it looks like they're not light_spots, but they are a combination of light and light_spot

Heh, good to see my decompiler going to good use. :)

Just keep in mind, if either EA or MGM decide to give a crap about it, they could sue. They probably won't, though, they never cared at all about the PC version of Nightfire.
