Description

After seizing the communications tower in the grassy plains outside of Lothal's Capital City, the Rebel Alliance comes under heavy fire from the Imperial war machine. Desperate to spread their message of hope throughout the galaxy, they must hold the tower at all costs.

Nice work. I really like this map. But the only thing I didn't like was the textures of the roads. I think it would look better with a more detailed texture

Yeah i'm pretty crap with texturing. It's not one of my priorities, tbh, though I may or may not take another look at it later on. Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks! I do my best. I personally think my modelling is getting better, if I do say so myself, though that first commenter is 100% right that my texturing is sub par; hopefully with time I'll get better

Well this map, unlike my others, uses custom sides to accommodate the new vehicles, so make sure you don't have any side mods running that could be causing issues. Secondly, check to make sure that you don't have too many mods in your addon folder, as that can crash the game too. Is anyone else having this issue? It never happened to me while testing

Same here, I suspect it's because I'm using Harrisonfog's remastered sides

That would make sense; I used custom sides for once and that's prob causing the issue. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about it - just uninstall the side mod and it should work fine. If it still doesn't work, lmk and i'll see if i can find what's causing it. Thanks for pointing out the issue guys!

I have the same problem, when I spawn I crash momentarily, and I have the Harrisonfogs mod I think that's why

Every time I download a map or mod, I deactivate the mods that I have installed, but this map still crashes.

It's also possible that you have too many maps in your addon folder. That happens to me a lot. You can remove a couple maps from your addon folder or just make a new addon folder and rename the new one, interchange them as needed. Also, I made this on a windows pc, so on the off chance you're using anything other than a windows pc, it may not be compatible, i have no idea

The map looks really cool but unfortunately it crashes when I spawn. I am pretty sure it’s because I have too many maps.

A lot of ppl seem to be having this prob, even though mimban, which also has custom sides, doesn't seem to. It could just be too many maps or side mods or something, but its also a large map with a very large load distance. For version 1.1 i'll be lowering all the rendering distances and ai count as much as i can w/o hurting gameplay and see if that helps. rn the map might just be too much for some ppl's machines even though it's fine for mine. Might not be enough, as it's a very large map, but it should increase the chances at least a little. 1.1 will also have new characters, vehicles, and more

Okay! Take your time. I love clone wars and rebels but unfortunately clone wars gets more mod attention, I was very excited when I say this map! I haven’t looked at the other maps but I am going to because the few glimpses I saw of Lothal was really cool! When can I expect the 1.1 version

Maybe a week, idk. I will say that this is the only map of mine that significant numbers of ppl have been having probs on, so the rest should be fine

The map crashes as soon as I try to spawn on any team.

It works fine for me, but many ppl are reporting this issue, so it could be that your machine isnt as good as mine (which would be weird, as mines not that great). But as you can see from the vid it works fine for me. In the 1.1 ill lower the render distance and foliage settings as much as i can without hurting the gameplay. Other than that, it could be a side mod or just too many maps in the addon folder

EDIT lowering your view and lod distances in your game settings wouldnt hurt either, but hopefully i can get this sorted out in the 1.1. If your discord is still up i might reach out to you for some playtesting for the next version soon, as i really want to make sure that works, and i cant really do much on that front bc the crash isnt happening to me in the first place

IMPORTANT REQUEST. If anyone who is experiencing these crashes has the modtools, could you run it with the mod tools and get an error log. I really want to fix this crash, but it's hard for me to understand what's causing it when it isnt happening to me. Just dm with the log if you get one

Don't know how far this will get you, but, I am also experiencing the crash and I realized that when the lod distance is set to any more than 30ish the game will crash when you spawn. I have all of your maps and none of them have this problem or anything similar. I don't have an underpowered machine either, this seems to be a game related crash.

Hope this helps in any way possible!

I have my lod set to 99 and it works fine for me, so I still think it might be machine related. Alternatively, it's also possible that you have a graphics mod that might add more strain to the device. Regardless, though, this at least proves that this issue is the render distance and/or the foliage that ppl's computers are having trouble rendering, and I will significantly lower all stats related to that in the next version to help as much as possible. Also, I'd like to do some beta tests with ppl who are experiencing the crash, so if you'd like to beta test the 1.1, pls dm me. It'll be a few days before i can get the beta to you though, as i'm having some issues with the world file rn because im an unbelievable moron haha
