Does Minisiege Accept Custom Map Submissions?

Thu May 19, 2016 1:49 pm

Hello,
I frequent and enjoy your server quite a lot. I do, however, wish you had a larger pool of maps for more variety. So I am stopping by to see if you folks are interested in any custom multiplayer maps. I happen to have a map made from a long while back that would fit the theme for minisiege. If interested, check out the screenshots below

An atypical map, the attackers start on high ground and must assault a ruined ship that beached itself.
Image
To get inside the attackers have to fight their way through the lower deck first. They can get inside by jumping through the windows. Most of the walls are destructible and can be used to punch bigger, more convenient holes in the side of the ship.
Image
The view from the upper deck can be seen below. The cannon shown is destructible if the floor below it is destroyed. Attackers have to climb the ladder first to capture the flag.
Image

In general, the map lends itself well to quick round timer and could make for a great change of pace from some of the more fortified maps. If you are interested, the scene is attached below. The section for scenes.txt is shown below to copy and paste:

scn_mp_custom_map_14 mp_custom_map_14 256 none none 0.000000 0.000000 100.000000 100.000000 -100.000000 0x0000000020004db18004611400005c918000397b00004c2e
  0
  0
 outer_terrain_beach

If it doesn't show up, it probably overwrote the map siege_of_Toulon (strange thing that may or may not happen). I don't mind if you folks modify or edit it yourselves, do whatever you want with it.

Best Regards,
-Bane5

Hello. The map doesn't look bad but it seems very small for a siege, even for Minisiege. I really can't imagine 60 players in this boat. Also you should add your map there:

Thanks for the reply, If you so wish, I can could expand it possibly, maybe adding a second or even third destroyed boat, or maybe some rocks.

I'll alter it and repost here. If you don't mind, I will hold off on posting it in that forum section until the final version is complete to your liking.

Okay here is an updated version. I'll post it on that forum section too.

I expanded things a little bit for the defenders, widening things a little bit and adding a second ship. More spawns have been moved back to tone down spawn camping.

 The map doesn't look bad but it seems very small for a siege, even for Minisiege.
This time I made a huge overhaul of the map in order to make it about the right size for a minisiege. Screenshots are posted below:

The time to walk to the objective area is about 35 seconds (crossing bridge route) instead of a mere 20 seconds.

Image

Two routes now exist to get to the objective. The first is through a wide cave (angle shown makes it look very narrow).

Image

The second route for bypassing that heavily defended cave chokepoint is hopping on either of two small boats to flank attack.

Image

Here is a view showing the second large boat I added as mentioned previously.

Image

The wreckage now appears as if this ship was rammed by a galley and is now stranded. This second ship acts a respawn area for a lot of players to help avoid spawn camping. There are also a few spawns outside the ship on the beach cave-side. This spreads out players and gives room in the event of a full server.
-----------------------
I am certain you will find things to be of much higher quality this time around.  I've taken care to fix any possible pathing glitches. If you have any concerns or think any area of the map that needs changes, let me know and I'll gladly modify things. I've also ensured that the file size is exactly 200 kb for quick loading.
This map replaces siege of toulon (day). (at least that's what I think happens, not sure)

Looking great.
I hope this will make it into map rotation, or at least into the server for manual activation.

I hosted the map privately for some admins to showcase some stuff. I made some changes based on feedback given. 
  • Fixed two small spots where attackers could jump down from the cliffs unharmed. (major exploit)
  • rearranged attacker cannons to be less punishing to the defending team
  • added a 4th cannon to the defenders, swivel cannon with 40 degree traverse on the right side of the boat
This will probably be the last version I release before it goes live; will have to see how it plays out on a more populated server before I can make further changes.
