  1. That is all self-evident. What would be of interest is a list of maps that have already been approved as to be included in the map pack. I think a lot of people in the community would really appreciate getting this info and that it could spark some new life to the community's efforts to create DM maps pre-release (looking at this thread it should be obvious that not much is happening in that area right now...).
  2. I would also like to know this. Creating a map without the DM map editor is quite a bit of work, so knowing if it is worth the effort to create maps the hard way would certainly by appreciated by the community. Look at it this way: if people know what maps are to be included that would be an incentive for people to create more maps, which in turn would lead to more quality maps. As the situation is now, people have no real clue about where the bar is set.
  3. Ok, the upload seems to work fine now. This means I have uploaded a new Team Deathmatch map called... TDM Siege of Snake Farm Some basic info about the map: The attacking team is trying to take over the fortified Snake Farm in the desert. The defending team is trying to prevent that from happening (or to escape with their lives). Attackers: up to 16 players Defenders: up to 10 players The attackers should have an advantage in numbers to encourage an attack. The attackers weapon pickups are also designed to benefit a quick attack on the Snake Farm compound, while the defenders get an ad
  4. Race name: 8-Tracktion Short Hotknife Two other versions of the map are available for download: 8-Tracktion and 8-Tracktion Short. For your viewing pleasure I have created a video demo so that you can better understand what the map is all about. Enjoy!
  5. A good place to find this kind of info is in the Map Editor Manual.
  6. A thread on this topic was recently started by driver2. Take a look at it: http://forum.mtavc.com/viewtopic.php?t=18464 There are many good suggestions there that you will benefit from when you make your first map.

    This would be an excellent topic to start, that is, when you have actually made at least one map to link to. And yes, the topic does seem a little useless for now. Please make some maps to make the topic less so.
  8. I have uploaded a Team DM map called Four_Tribes.map. There are *gasp* four tribes (Groves, Ballas, Vagos and Rifas) fighting over domination of the map. The map supports a maximum of 32 players and will most likely be most fun with many players since there are four teams. Each gang spawns in a separate part of the map and because of map symmetries no gang is at an advantage. Weapons included: 9mm Pistols, Uzis, Shotguns, AK-47s, Handgrenades, M4 and Rifle Health (one) and Armor (five) pickups are also available. A "special feature" that I included in the map is pickups with very short res
  9. That appears to be the case. For example, in the first column and third row, there is a skin picture called "bmyri (20).jpg", where '20' seems to be refering to model 20 in the peds.ide file. Since it also matches the description in the VCES list ("guy in sickly yellow shirt and dark trousers"), I would assume that the rest of the references are reasonably correct (several other picture names seems to verify that this is so, but since I did not create that page myself, do not blame me it some turn out to be incorrect... ).
  10. I found the descriptions in the list of skin IDs linked to above to be less than satisfying, so here is a link to a page with visuals of the skin IDs: GTA:SA Full visual actors ide number reference
  11. Here's a wild idea that could "solve" your problem, but I don't know if this is/will be supported: What you could possibly do is to add a health pickup at the same point as the spawnpoint in question and set the number of health points to be gained to a negative number. For example, if you want the person spawning there to have 5% health at the start, use -95 as the number of health points (hp) to be gained. You would also want to set the pickup respawn time to a suitable value to make it a once only pickup or at least to give the player a few seconds to make sure you don't kill the spawned p
  12. My first two DM-style maps have been uploaded. To the best of my ability they follow the map syntax suggested earlier for DM maps to be uploaded. LV Motel Massacre. A DM map based around a motel in Las Venturas. The motel and its surroundings have been improved and surrounded by a fence to ensure that no one gets out alive... Los Pistoleros. A DM pistol duel going down in the ghost town of Las Brujas in Bone County. Very simple scenario. The players meet in Las Brujas to settle the issue of who is the better gunslinger.
  13. Thank you. That helped a lot. The link for the IDs is also appreciated, although it would be nice to be able to see the players skins associated with each ID. One question though. I noticed that in the code you provided, there's no tag for the rotation of the on-foot player spawn points (like ), so that the direction in which a newly spawned player is facing is not explicit. I assume there is such a tag in the maps used and that we should include it in the maps that we submit? Something like this, in the general case: 151.831482 1362.633545 10.143716 -0.945000 0.000000 0.000000 0
  14. Can you be a little more specific as to what you envision the gameplay will be like in this DM map, when it is done? Availability of weapons (range, ammo, frequency of respawning)? Armor/health pickups? Number of players? Where will players spawn? Respawning allowed? Significant areas to control? There are many thing that we do not know. As a basic concept for a map it looks good and it is tough to give any real constructive thoughts about it at this point. One thing to consider is the dynamics of gameplay. How will the players react in game? Will they have multiple options (paths, strategies
  15. This question has been posted and answered before. The following threads could be useful to you: "diff vehicle spawning" (http://forum.mtavc.com/viewtopic.php?t=17876) "Spawnpoint Editor" (http://forum.mtavc.com/viewtopic.php?t=15796) I hope that this will be of help to you.
