Hey all.

Now that KTK is running again, I've asked around for custom duel maps and got nice responses from mappers like voodoochopstiks, distrans, Tiddles, inertia and bambuz.
This is the map that is being developed by voodoochopstiks, but he needs your feedback! Play it out a few times and comment here with ideas, suggestions, criticism, etc, anything is appreciated.

Screenshot:

Servers with the map:
clanwars.xs4all.nl:27500
clanwars.xs4all.nl:28501
clanwars.xs4all.nl:28502
clanwars.xs4all.nl:28503

Edit: Latest version is travelert6

I've got the level on the web at http://www.trisoup.com/travelert2.bsp

Thanks molgrum, I just wanted to add that I haven't really gotten started on the graphics much yet, but I'd be happy for some style suggestions as well as everything else. Feedback would be really appreciated!

The map is also on clanwars.xs4all.nl:27500 as well as ports 28501-28503 for you continentals.

I put up two screenshots:

I just had a little fun jumping around on travelert1 on xs4all and I must say that this map would have quite some potential. However, I really hate maps where you can die from "falling down" like on q1dm17/skull, so I'm afraid you won't see me playing this. Good luck though - looks quite solid!

it is interesting, but kind of rough to navigate

voodoochopstiks can you make a QW-adapted conversion for your CPM map, Astronomy?

Astronomy Remake: Maybe later, probably never.

Darkness: Screenshots didn't take my gamma value for some reason, have you tried it in game?

T3 is up! http://www.trisoup.com/travelert3.bsp

Not much has happened, some ammo adjustments, performance optimizations and a new path out from slime. You are also allowed to get on the ceiling of the map in certain places.

Been a while since I updated this thread, it's now up to http://www.trisoup.com/travelert6.bsp

It is on the gravity servers.

Feedback is still appreciated! I'm going overseas but I'll be back in ~12 days.

I'm afraid that the void (instant death) will never be seen as positive on a map, can something creative be done here to give someone a chance to survive when falling down (like on dm4)?

maybe instead of insta-death it teleported you to a dis-advantageous spot depending on where you fell? where...i dunno...you'd have to make sure that someone couldn't 'exploit' the teleport to escape.

and failing that, yeah, just make it a pool of slime or something and put a few walls up

Maybe some shallow lava to give some damage before teleporting back to map.
The teleport "layer" underneith the lava could be made out of several teleports side by side and then make that "layer" move horizontally so that you can't be sure where you end up i.e. which teleport you will enter.
Does this makes sense? Maybe it's not feasible at all?

I think that both teleporters and moving platforms are considered func's and I don't think you can tie more than one func to a single brush/entity unless qw has some sort of func_multi like half life does

You can't move a func_teleport.

Just discovered this thread... I have to comment that this is by far my favorite duel map off all time.

Really awesome map. Have played 1000's of games on it with some friends who also love it.

Thank you for creating this awesome map!!
