A big thank you to everyone that has witnessed it and given me positive feedback. These are the maps I have made:
Watch Wrecked Train.
The bad news is you guys will get the full map pack in 3 weeks time when I get back.
Thanks to quagmire for the google doc link
In the meantime, feel free to post questions here:
This will be in time for the 1v1 finale I think. Big thanks for making those maps Delta!
Grenadiers - "You're payed to kill, not dig trenches with your face!"
Rub yer hands in anticipation, You can ask Neo, Waxy, DownNloaded etc. those guys have already got a taste of it!
Its here ^^ finally.
N.B. THIS IS THE SPECTATOR MAP LINK CONTAINING THE ABOVE LISTED MAPS.
These are all the spectator maps I promised.
Could someone make sure these maps get out to people as well?
I will do that :)
a few of us tryed out the maps nice job by the way but there are a few problems
1. the manpower points that are in your base, if you cap these you can no longer biuld bilding in you base
2. is that the spectaters also take a lose if the person they are watching loses which in many cases player who have high levels well maby take a lose to there level
these are good maps and I am not complaning just giving feed back
I should have mentioned this first
1) ALL SLOTS MUST BE FILLED IN LOBBY. If there are no more players USE BOTS.
DO NOT USE BRIT BOTS!
2) All specators will incur a win or loss of the person they watch. This is a RELIC issue not a map issue.
I suggest all of you make special accounts just for these spectator maps
i.e. Use TAWx(name)
i.e. TAWxDeltaValkyrie, just for the spectator maps
3) Use FIXED Start locations ^^ If youre not sure which ones look at the original map's minimap to decide where to start
The point of these maps is so people can watch live! It also allows TI's to conduct training. I mean even DownNloaded reckoned this was way better than PropagandaCast ^^
P.S. Stealth, thank you for the feedback, I should have mentioned all this stuff in the readme.
well thanks for making that clear
great job on all the maps
Should I make something similar for the 2v2 maps?
Oh yes, and you must use this tool to record replays.
Using this program allows you to easily put one or more maps into the
game even if you don't know how to do it or which folders are involved.
Moreover that little application allows you to record and watch replays on custom maps, which is not possible without it.
How to install and use GR Custom Maps Installer :Installation - For the first timeDownload
the GR_Maps.zip file including the GR_Maps.exe. Extract and launch the
GR_Maps.exe from any folder you want on your computer.The first
time you launch it, it will try to find your coh folder, and ask you to
locate that folder, if it doesn't find it by itself. Enter the folder
where coh is installed, usually something like "C:\Program
Files\THQ\Company of Heroes". That folder you entered will be remembered
for all subsequent times.When the coh folder is located, it
will ask you to run with administrator privileges if needed, because
often Program Files folders are protected. If it does, re-run the
GR_Maps.exe application as admin once, it will set the right permissions
to your folders, and you'll be able to use it without admin rights next
time.Once this is done, you can start using itUsing itThis
is very simple. There are 3 tabs. One to add new custom maps into the
game, one to remove existing custom maps, and one to clean everything
the application made if you want to uninstall it.Adding new maps :Click
the "Select new maps" button and browse your folders to find the maps
(*.sga files) you want to add. You can chose more than one at the same
time. Once it's selected, click ok.The selected maps should be
written on the right. Make sure everything is fine and click the "Put
them in the game" button to add them. This will copy those maps into the
GR_Maps folder, as well as adding a reference to them in the
RelicCoH.module.This will allow you to play in those maps with
the usual game, recording replays on those maps, and be able to watch
those replays. You don't need to run the game with any special command
or anything else.Removing existing maps :This works
exactly the same way as adding new maps, except that you have to chose
maps already installed in GR_Maps folder in order to remove them.
Obviously if you select a map somewhere else the map is not installed
and thus cannot be removed.Backups :Each time you add
or remove a map, a backup of the previous RelicCoH.module is stored
into "GR_Maps\backups" folder. You can remove them if you want, they are
only there to help you restore your settings in case of any problems.Clean everything :Be sure you really want to clean it all, and click the "Remove everything" button.
ITS A DAMN SEXY TOOL :P
Yes pretty much, the only limitation is the number I can fit into the lobby (4v4).
So yes, I can make a 2v2 map with 4 spectators (4v4)
I can make a 3v3 map with 2 spectators (4v4)
Basically post here what maps you want and Ill try my best to make them up.
NOTE: Spectator maps are VERY time consuming so you can't expect them fast.
Great tool, now I can finally save replays from custom maps.
