    [PROTOTYPE] DM-Ethos (WIP)

    RushBase PAK download >> Latest Version DM-Ethos-V9<< Size 55.1 MB << Size has doubled because of the new engine build. I will upload a smaller version once they have fixed the bug.

    I put this shell together over the past couple of days, it needs some placement and layout testing.

    The map was inspired by small open maps like DM-Idoma and the new castle maps we have in UT4, I optimized the layout for instagib but also made sure it plays well with weapons. It's simple but fun.

    If anyone has some suggested music leave a comment below.

    Player Count:

    4 players a Duel, anything over 4 will be a crazy frag fest fiesta!

    Constructive criticism only please.

                Looks interesting, downloading now!

                Edit: Thoughts after a quick playtest

                First off the sky is awesome! What did you do to make it look so good?

                I think it needs to be bigger and less wide open with more separation between areas. Could use more vertical play too. It'd be nice if some of the higher ledges and towers/buildings were playable areas too... Maybe a sniper tower or an underground area.

                  Thx for testing it!

                  The Sky is the Face Master Sky, I just added it to a sky sphere, it came out kinda cool

                  I did start the map off with some upper levels, but decided I wanted to keep it very simple so it works well for a fast instagib game, kinda like Idoma, insidious and all those maps did. Not sure where I could add anything extra without out changing the over all layout totally. I've tried adding things in there to block the line of sight somewhat.

                    Really? I've used that one before... Maybe it's your lighting...

                    Or maybe it's just because a couple days ago I changed my video card settings from best performance to best quality. If so it really makes a big difference on that sky!

                      Love the looks of this map as well as the theme. Reminds me of DM-Gothic from UT99.

                      For this map to evolve further I suggest more fancy/realistic materials and maybe some trims.

                      Based on one of your posted screenshots, I took the liberty of highlighting (red straight lines) the most distinct low poly sharp corners (90 degrees) where I thought it could use some more polys/bevel:

                        Yeah I changed the lighting to more of a Blue effect, so maybe that's why?

                          Thanks so much for your suggestions I will see what I can do about the sharp edges by the next build.

                            Hi effects,

                            after 2 short rounds I'm on the same page as MoxNix opinon on your new map:
                            the inner part is a nice, larger more or less plain area, but its missing some z-axis action. I wonder (or suggest ) that you make use of the larger existing buildings and towers as well as the surrounding walls and make them also part of the gameplay, by making them accessible. E.g. jumppads to get on the wall areas from the inner play area. And as a possible later extension: also a few larger rooms in the existing buildings, with 2-levels inside and option to get up/out to the wall area.

                            Kind of DM-Barricade style: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtmPAk_3DfE
