At last a map i think i will finish it is called (for now) outcast
I have a .pk3 here ... utcast.pk3
you dont have to do anything to the .pk3 file just drag into your etmain folder
run et chose host and it will be listed with other single objective maps to take a look and delete when you are done.
keep in mind all the vis_blocking has been removed from this copy the actual frame rates will be better.
and i have custom textures and scripting that is not ready so the map is not fully functional.
kind of a pre beta look.
i wanted a true night map where some areas would be somewhat dark.
i will probably add some more light.

or if you dont want to download the pk3 here are some screenshots
the main objective radar towers
secondary objective main gate
secondary objective depot


random views

in the radar towers there will be animated radar screens that are destructible.
after they are gone a smoke grenade that has to be brought to a location in the sub bay
then a end game animation with planes destroying the submarines.
thats the plan for now.
i have a custom texture for the ocean done and a few others
maybe a actual beta in a week or so.

No, no, don't name it "old_school". The name is very important to a map's popularity, think of some appealing, WW2 related name that makes sense considering the map's looks and gameplay.

Garden gate
underwater base glass ceiling section
map with new water
underwater base teleport

started thinking that map was too generic got rid of one of the towers
added teleport in the "garden" and a new objective the underwater base.
the objective is going to be to destroy a pipe or wall that red team is able to repair
and flood the underwater base.
I have not updated the pk3 yet.

Re: map almost done? updated pk3

I have updated the pk3 for Outcast here ... utcast.pk3
all of the models and textures are showing in my "clean install".

let me know i you try it and shaders or models are missing
keep in mind that its still a work in progress
it needs a little more detail,and the vis_blocking done

I am also still working on the script that
floods the base and ends the map if allies win.
