I'd imagine the particle effects look really nice in a night setting.

You mean a sandbox map that players can just mess around on and do custom stuff with props? That is actually a really great idea :)

How would that be any different than just the existing map editor?

It would save people the work of messing with textures and such. In the end though, no difference.

Is that possible with EAW? A in game map editor

No. I meant that players will just have a world to use in the map editor...something to get started on so they only have to place props, rather than tweak elevations and textures and stuff. Map editor for noobs basically.

Perhaps give them some landscape settings(referring to noobs :P) to make a nice looking map with minimal effort. Just hypothetical.

Looks pretty sweet. I think the night setting is actually not a bad idea. Would also be fairly unique, as few RTS maps actually feature night time.

Fantastic map there! I like the idea of night, it's not often used. Just a thought, perhaps using the editor's "fog" option could add to the feel of darkness enveloped over the area (set to a dark color). It might make it too hard to see though.

The projectiles really pop with this lighting.

I tried fog but then you cant see the halo ring... However, im going to be making a custom weather condition that will be like "clear skies" but will have ambient cricket noises or something. Also, unique models can be set for specific weather conditions so then i can add marines with activated flashlights and stuff. I really think that will help simulate night.

Cool. Having flashlights under a new environment setting mimicking night? That's genius. Then again, I don't think we'd expect anything else.

They already do. You can see it if they pass low enough to the ground. Barely though, because it's a day time map.

I don't know if capture the flag would work or not... This is the original Blood Gulch...not Coagulation.

You could adjust capture the flag to be more like destroy the flag. You just need to rework code from the Destroy Command Center setting.

you need to make UNSC snipers and jackel marksmen so that the ridges can be better used by the infantry

He already did. Play the beta and you'll find ODST snipers and Jackal snipers.

Description

This is the new map I've been working on. It's an RTS adaptation of Blood Gulch and it's at night. You'll have to let me know what you think of the night setting...it may be too hard to see to be fun playing...
