Default Fortress (Duel)

Fortress (Duel)





Introduction


A place located in the height far from civilisation. The forces of the Legion once stationed in this fortress held back the danger of the Horde that came over the mountains for hundreds of years. Suddenly the Legion disappeared together with their enemies. Maybe they were kidnapped and are now suffering in occult rituals of the Horde.

Today only the most ambitious warriors take their pilgrimage to this forgotten bastion to learn the secret combat techniques of other fighters. While they are busy with their own little competitions, drinking and philosophizing, they don't suspect what happened here before and of the danger that lays behind the mountains that might come back some day to kidnap more poor souls.

Screenshots v1.0



Technical Details

The map is currently hosted by Lorbriyanar on his server "Lorbri's duel train".

The size of the map is 9 and the scale is 32. The amount of entities used is rather high which leads to a lot of geometry and cpu load. I'm using an E8400 @3ghz and a HD7850 and I get 80-120 fps on highest settings except for shadows which are only at medium.

The duel script is copied from duel_arena_ranged. I don't know much about scripting, I only change some values here and there if needed. Thanks to the author of the duel script.

Should you experience low framerates try reducing/disabling shadows first. This can increase the performance by 50% in some cases.

The icon for malphas in the "Select Unit" menu has been removed. I'm also considering about removing the icons for siege units. They are annoying in a duel server.


Thanks to Lorbriyanar, Pidgeoni and MightyMice who were helping to debug the map.

Also thanks to Jedd, Sartassa and Geveze. You have motivated me a lot in creating maps.



--- Update v1.2 2. August 2012 ---

The "Respawn" button in the game menu is now fully functional and teleports you back to the starting location. Thanks for the script, Pidgeoni.

The chapel on the hill recieved another update.

The lake in the southern region is now accessable through new paths.

Previous map version: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/65610282/fortress_v1.1.s2z

--- Update v1.1 11. July 2012 ---

The server crashes were caused when standing in front of a heightmap blocker and choosing behemoth in the select unit menu. All heightmap blockers are now replaced with entity blockers to fix the problem.

The hill with the chapel on it inside the fortress is now accessable through a new path.

The length of the wall/rampart has been increased and some minor things inside the fortress were changed.

Some work on the landscape/scenery. New path to one of the lakes.

Removed siege units from the select unit menu and replaced summoner with hunter.

Tried to add a new button to the game menu to have some kind of respawn function in case someone gets stuck or lost on the map, but it only works in a local game. I don't know how to make it work on the server.

The second link provides the screenshots. I will edit it a little bit so it can be found easier.

Great intro and map. I like the duel pits, and the scenery, it looks great. The scenery on the outside the arena, and the nice little paths are cool. There's a rock at the bottom of the dirty path on the west side where an invisible rock is, and gets you stuck.
May I also request some secret dueling areas? Where the river is, around those mountains, or at the bottom of the path.
I can make a video if it, too? :3

Thank you.

I can't promise anything at the moment. I'm pretty much burned out right now, but I will try to edit a few things as soon as possible.

By the way, does anybody know who made the original duel arena script? I can't find it from digging on the forums.

Duel arena scripts were made by Winex and Xorc, afaik. Pidgeoni might have had a hand in it.

EDIT: Yea turning shadows to low when all other settings are max tripled my fps.

Hey Asa, have you ever played Gothic 3?

That arena looks almost the same like it did in Gothic 3 in the rebel camp.

SIDENOTE: GJ!
