    My first map. A fail-train. The screen-shots are a bit out-dated, but here's a video of bots playing on the map: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qs2soCEVmA (just when I decided to record, they won by blitzing...)

    Screen-shits are bad enough but outdated screen-shits are just completely unsanitary.

    This is years old, but I took it up, cleaned it up a bit, lowered the VMF and BSP size and detailed last. Is it alright if I publish this?

    But it's an orphaned map, in the Orphaned Maps Repository. The description of this forum is: Maps whose owners have given up on continuing themselves and have left to the community to finish. Apparently, HolySnickerPuff has not done anything wrong. Asking permission to publish it is good form.

    You complained that HolySnickerPuff had taken it upon themselves to expand upon this orphaned map.

    Yes, and I realized I was in the wrong and deleted my post right before you posted your own.
    So there.

    Thanks.

    (You were talking about my name, right?)

    Anywho, I also changed the name of the map, from 'Dust Is For Men', to 'Manndust', to make it less confusing. I'm also considering changing the main theme from 'Gold Rush Update' to Mountain Lab/MvA. What do you guys think?

    Actually I was talking about the map name, but your name is cool too.

    Sorry, thought you were talking about me.

    Anywho, I just decided that the "Mountain MvA Yadda Yadda" that I was going to change the style to will instead be an event version of the map, and I'll release my revised version of DIFM soon.

    Just to clarify - Did anyone actually publish a finished version of this map? I'm thinking of taking it up as an on-the-side project.

    I made two separate versions, Dustmenn and Gladdison. They were somewhat of a success, but they were still pretty bad. If you want, I can give you my vmfs, and you can work on them.

    I might check them out - I have some pretty radical changes in mind, so hopefully it won't end up being a clone of either of yours. Even if they did all originally stem from the same map :)
    Besides, I might not even get anywhere with it :p
