[MH] Race Map
« on: September 11, 2015, 07:46:51 pm »
Hey ya'll,

We should make a clan race ma- WAIT DONT SHOOT ME

I know how some of you feel about race maps but theres definitely a community around them, people enjoy them. A lot of new mappers start of making race maps (hence the huge backlog of shitty racemaps) but often they turn out to be really good mappers later. I think if we made a cool looking race map we could get the MH name out there more as well as give players a better idea of what well designed race maps look like.

 I don't believe there has been a clan race map ever created before, either.

If we decide to make this map, I have a couple of ideas.

1. A casino-themed map (equipped with billiards, slots, all that gambling shit, cards you have to jump from etc)
2. A farm themed map (barns, pigs, flying pigs, pigs)

Anything done should be under 200 WTR or so, the map has to be more clever than it is extraordinarily detailed.

Same here; if trickjumps will be applied.

Sounds like a good idea. I like messing around with linear maps, as you can start off with zero ideas, and just build as you go.  When you don't know what to build, they can be fun to work on.

+1 for trickjumps too. I love making maps with rifle/rocket jumps etc.

Makes the map way more unique than current race maps and puts it to a higher level.

Current race maps are, hold W, the end.

Now what about... say.... MH CoopRace?  An actual race.  We could do teams of 2-3 racing against eachother.

Or perhaps a large race, with multiple paths that can be taken, each leading into it's own unique environment.

teams of three would be far too complicated, but another 2v2 coop race would be awesome. i would personally not make completing it itself as hard as the original coop race as it gets pretty frustrating quickly and barely anyone finishes it at all. in my opinion a race map should be about competing for the best time, so it would be easy to finish but have a high skill ceiling with lots of trickjumps and alternate paths. that would grant replayability and encurage people to actually practice on the map instead of making them give up after flying over it in edit mode for the first time :)
