Welcome to CMM

The CMM forum software was recently upgraded, some things may have changed and some things may be broken or not working. Please let me know by PM or on IRC if you have any problems using this forum.

Also, I've removed the skybox and shader links for now, the shader generator page was being abused and as we're moving towards a ue4 mapping base, they're redundant.

Urban Zone and CMM map of the month

Postby johnnyenglish » Thu Sep 13, 2012 11:04 am

Posted by SevenofNine on Urban Zone


In association with Custom Map Makers.

Back in the olden days Oswald hosted Urban Radio which has a “server of the week” where people could join in the public server and play against him. For me as a relative noob I was thrilled when I got mentioned, “chuffed for life” are the words I’d use.

Anyway enough sentimental drivel, this is something we want to replicate but then for custom maps. One evening a month we highlight a new custom map, we play the map in TS and CTF and if possible bomb. This will be streamed live on twitch.tv. It won’t be a match but a public server, we have a couple of guests (see below) and the rest of the slots are open to the public. After, lets say an hour, our guests and the presenter review the map giving them their insight as player, mapper and developer. Together we give it a score out of 5 (the same system the download area has). This way we get people more interested in custom maps.


We've decided to hold the first "map of the month" on or around the 28th September 2012, we'll be opening up one of the CMM servers to anyone who wants to participate, this event will be telivised on twitchTV, SevenofNine will be joined in the commentary by Delirium and HappyDay.

Our server will host and we'll aim to play CTF, TS and if possible Bomb - all CMM members are encouraged to drop by and participate if possible.

We're still trying to decide on the map we use but all comments and suggestions are welcome.

For the purpose I've created a special page here that will explain things a little more and, closer to the event show a form for voting and comments.

Cheers John

Just don't choose Italy. Ever.
Don't waste your time, the map is canceled. Period.

We should also judge the factor "Jumps" considering wether or not a map is jumper friendly.

BTW: You used "Clipping" on Gameplay and on Appearence, what differs one from the other?


List of maps to play on this project:
  • Tohunga_b10
  • Derelict
  • Sugarmill
  • Exhibition

(I'll take a look at other good maps! :)

the differense i was thinking about was.
Gameplay. brushes that blocks you off that should have been clipped(corner on walls and things that is anoing if you slide and get stuck by). Apearence is areas that is blocked off in a way that make it feel like you walk on a invisible wall for no reason, also if a round ubject is 100% squear [].

Just one simple question, how many maps were released in August.

I think the term "map of the month" is a bit misleading, it doesn't mean "maps released this month", it means a map will be chosen and featured for that month by promoting the map to server owners, featured on SevenofNines shoutcast and run 24/7 on our servers. We'll also try to give some organised feedback for the mapper.

Looking back over 2012 there have been a lot of worthy maps released but with very little interest, just to name a few at random.

ut4_loco_b1 (one of my fave maps and very underrated)
ut4_area3 (got a lot of interest but I've never played this on a server)
ut4_metro


I could probably list more maps which deserve attention and I guess other people could suggest more, we'll just work our way through them and as new maps are released, add them to the pool.

I have no idea if this is going to work out but it's an attempt to help mappers "sell" their maps to a wider audience and surely thats a good thing?

Also it might be fun.
