[release] ff_openfire_b2

Fairly direct port of the original. Main changes from the tfc map openfire_lowgrens:
The flag is now in a fire and you have to open the bars to get at it. uc?
Midmap is a much happier place for aardvarks to live.
You can teleport between resupplies

Download (fixed sound)

1) Openfire is being made by the FF team afaik so dont use the name

2) a quick remake has been done by Sh4x .. only problem is the flag can be thrown bit by bit when flying into the lasers. which still plays fine

Dont see a need to do another remake with about the same graphical qualities as sh4x ..

good job and don't let the openfire is "already being made" bs stop you from completing or releasing it.

and FF_openfire_sid should do nicely

I like the changes you made to the yard. Is there anything else you changed?

Wrong. Sh4x did not put any time into it, so the graphical qualities in his is total crap. In the other hand, Sid seemed to put some time into it (although not a whole lot), which dramatically looks much better than Sh4x's version. Thanks Sid! Keep on going, don't let anyone stop you.

And since when do graphics mather more then gameplay?

Shax's map is being used in PMFFL this season and we already play it in wars, and its a great temp solution..

I dont have any problems with yet another clone of a map, i just think it's a bit pointless, but hey, knock yourself out if you want to do the hassle

for some reason, the screens didnt do it justice at first glance, i think it might have been the large amount of flat textures, but i played it last night, and it was great

Can there be a list of some significant differences between Sidds and sh4x's map designs?

It's not an exact port?

Plus, it has pretty colours.

I enjoyed it, a few thoughts;

The water in the middle of the yard could do with a smoother transition to the to the front doors I think the boxes etc may get in the way are they non solid? If not that would be a good idea, if that is done sinking them into the grass a bit more will make it feel less weird.

Snipers make the yard hell, snipers are very well and good in hunted and dust bowl but have no real function on a ctf map. All they do is anoy and therefore discourage attackers and hide in the midfield.

The cliffs could do with having another layer which extends to much greater height, so the map looks like the bases are at opposite ends of a gorge.
The large team coloured walls in the yard near the bridge could do with being broken up a bit as they are a bit bland. Maybe a few pillars set into it?

[edit]
The team coloured bits sticking out from the cliffs look bad, if you want something there why not try arches sticking out from a large dome (make using a torus).[/edit]

I still think replacing the stairs with ramps is worth doing on this map, improving game play flow can only be a good thing. Defence as a huge bias from the class balance anyway.

Is this map still in beta or have you completed it yet?

I would really love to include it in my Map Pack, but I'm trying not to include beta's!
