Title: Nightfire Releases
Post by: namajnaG on May 27, 2013, 11:28:09 am
Hello community! This thread was made for the Nightfire maps I've been working on.
For whoever is reading this today, I can safely say that NF_Power will be the only Nightfire map I will officially release, despite the fact that nf_caviar and nf_maintenance was pretty much done at the time of 4.2, I no longer find the interest to work on these.
Despite this message, I will release the maps that I have almost completed as-is due to the fact that the Nightfire maps currently in circulation on most servers are broken


NF_Power_v4


The fourth version has been released, And hopefully the last.

I have already given a copy of an anterior version to MaJoR and it was uploaded to the Spectrum server. It was updated since and four additional bugs have been fixed.
Should you find more, Please send me a private message or post right here, Preferably with a screenshot!

Features from the last time you've seen it :
-Completely revamped textures and lighting
-New props (Not all of them since a few couldn't be replaced, But mostly.)
-Fixed too many bugs
-Added minor eye candy (Barely visible light shafts, Sparkling lights)

Changes in v4 :
-4.2.3 Spawns fixed
-Rare crash in Janus side of the map seems to have been fixed (It might occur again, Should it do so, Please report it so I can see what I can possibly do.)
-Fixed a few more textures

Known bugs as of Goldeneye Source 5.0 :
-Explosion radius of explosive barrels unusually large

Compatible with version 5.0.

NF_Maintenance_Final

(https://i.imgur.com/jnTkfzy.jpg)

This map was originally reworked upon in 2013, and despite the fact that it wasn't 100% done, I feel like it could use a release instead of sleeping in my hard drive for eternity.
This map features ;

-Proper lighting
-Proper rain effects and skybox
-High quality textures
-New paths to ensure smoother gameplay (albeit not perfect)
-Proper, but imperfect optimization

This map is final and is released as-is. If it contains bugs, I cannot fix them, as I no longer seem to have the master files. All the textures and models have, however, been properly packed. (Should that not be the case, notify me immediatly)

Alright, So like a dumbass, I have released the map and I forgot to use pakrat before publishing it, Put in the wrong materials and didn't test it on another computer. Stupid enough mistake to give me a laugh. Thanks to Bashe for pointing it out.
Link updated in the first post, Make sure to grab this one and delete the older one. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Good, thank you for pakratting it.  I wasn't even going to upload it to my server with all those materials.  It's a real pain to write a script to force players to download all those files.

I just downloaded your new version and you still have 30 props....  I'm not uploading this until you fix that.  Pakrat everything...

Damn it, I didn't think it would be complicated to have players download 30 separate textures...
It'll be up in a few minutes.

Alright, Link updated, Everything should be fine now, Hopefully.

It's not complicated but rather a pain in the ass.  I'd have to write 30 lines, one for each file in my downloads.ini.

As of v4.2.3, some of the players were playing nf_power today, and they've reported getting stuck when they spawn in certain places on the map.

Thanks for reporting this, I will fix this as soon as the Internet is installed in my new home. (I'm at Tim Hortons right now) This might take up to two weeks, We've got a lot of work to do in the house.

V4 should be ready for a final test, Troy is hosting a Power event right now though.

Sorry for the delay - Again.
I've tested it at home with a friend and it looks fine, Hopefully this is the last time I'll have to re-release this map so I can go on and work on other maps.

-4.2.3 Spawns fixed
-Rare crash in Janus side of the map seems to have been fixed (It might occur again, Should it do so, Please report it so I can see what I can possibly do.)
-Fixed a few more textures

Download link updated.

You forgot to include the yousuffer.mp3 file in v4.  Either that, or you forgot to remove it from your script.

Thanks for the heads-up, I simply forgot to remove it from the music script since it did not work well.

Four year bump, I feel bad already.

As much as I thought I would never touch this project again, I'm afraid I have to do one last thing before nailing the coffin.
As I was playing on a server earlier, I noticed the abundance of Nightfire maps laying in the nomination list.
It seems people appreciate those maps, but whilst they're available, they are only straight decompiled maps with no work attached to them whatsoever. Just added weapon spawns and that's it.

Since I still have some of the files I used to work with, I feel like it is my duty to release some of the maps that I had already almost completed, but never released until today, because the current Nightfire maps in circulation are filled with problems and the players should be allowed access to better versions of them.
I know for a fact that some of those maps have issues, but since I no longer have the map files in my possession, it is impossible for me to work further on them. Also, I've moved onto different projects since and I do not wish to rework other Nightfire maps other than the ones I've already worked on significantly.

The main post has been updated with the release of NF_Maintenance. I will upload NF_Caviar later if it's playable, I'll look into it.
