    Post The Community Map Project Released!


    While youíre all waiting for the contest maps to be finalised and hopefully enjoying the unexpected release of Land of Legends, weíve decided to bring you another Christmas surprise. Can you guess what it is? Well you donít need to, as I will reveal it in the following paragraph:

    The project was originally started in December 2002, and it might even be argued that the project is older than that. Long-gone forum poster OmEgA came up with the idea of a joint mapping project, where multiple mappers would collaborate in the creation of one large mappack. The project quickly gained interest from a lot of people, and it ended up involving a total of 15 different mappers, 8 of which have had previous maps included in official SC releases. Work on the mappack, dubbed the Community Map Project, fluctuated, with periods of low and high progress, and the project was frequently declared to be dead, only to later be revived.

    Well, itís done now. These 7 high quality maps will take the players through an epic ride of interesting environments and exhilarating gameplay experiences. Enjoy

    Re: The Community Map Project Released!

    IMPORTANT NOTE: The final credits sequence in commap7 was broken in the original package I uploaded. I've used ripent to fix it and replaced the package on my website. Since i've used ripent there should be no compatibility issues between people who use the old package and the new package.

    Every mirror should upload the new package. It's the same link.

    If you've already downloaded the package you can also just download the fixed version of the map here:

    Re: The Community Map Project Released!

    Very good maps, I like em.
    Gameplay was simple but rich on action and detail for the maps was more than enough.

    Only problem I had was that from map4 to map7 my clients always dropped on certain situations. On map 4 especially when the xens are teleporting on the roof of that "bridge"

    The other maps I don't know why but most likely when something spawns.

    Did anyone else had this problem?

    Re: The Community Map Project Released!

    Thank you Nih, for finishing the hard work of all those mappers and getting the cake out of the oven. It is really delighting someone had faith in the project and didn't let it die, unlike myself. I also apologize for the delay on my own part, although I'll shift some blame on the lack of proper management from the starting point.

    Merry Christmas!

    That was great.

    I would like to point out that players can get "missing .wad" if theres no res files for these maps included.

    the maps just feel outdated, like something you'd play back then

    it'd be better suited in that time period, i don't think it flows that well in this version of sven (especially the last handful of maps, i didn't get to play commap6 cause it kept crashing for some reason, so commap4 5 and 7)

    i don't see how this is a TERRIBLE thing to say as most of those maps were made back then, i thought it was kind of an obvious thing to say
