Are they cool names like WarriorSlug, ScoutSlug, SlugSlug, etc.?  I think the names of the slugs are important and should convey 'Hey I'm a Slug that does X function and none of the other slugs do that, so please don't do my job because I'm X slug.'

heres my very bugged map: map-aeolos-b1
please tell me wat to fix, i cant find anymore bugs...
I don't wanna rain on your parade or something, but if it's a very buggy map, how come you can't fund anymore bugs?
Pretty levelshot by the way, although you cheated with the light blooming.

oh, sry, im tired...

i think it has a hunk alloc error, which i cant test, cuz my comp doesnt hav trouble with hunk allocing...

i guess im just used to everyone but me having trouble on my maps... lol

let me guess... no one can play it due to some freakish performance issues that i dont know about?

It means the map is too big to fit in the hunk size(from my understanding). You're probably using textures too massive. The Q3 engine has a max texture size of 512x512 and will scale down anything bigger than that to fit.

Overall the map isn't bad, I kinda like it...
But there are a few things that I don't like about it..

The door at the alien base opens in a strange way, (they disappear into the wall)
The sound generated in the "generator room" is much and much to loud!
Also:

Missing texture.          Bright yellow pipe?         It just looks strange..

---------------------------
Overal, it's a good map, like the human base in particular. Keep up the good work, brain! :D

Missing texture.

that is a default texture.... anywayz i replaced that, and fixed the orange pipe thing, and also made the grate in the vent look a little better, or was it the vent itself, at an angle like that? wondering if i should release a b2 just for that...

and i dont have any textures bigger than 512x512, but i do have alot of textures in the map, mebe thats the hunk trouble... that would be very hard to fix, because i would have to re-texture the whole map...

b2 released, with all bugs fixed except for the engine sound... the hunk alloc might be fixed if it was caused by the trem-ulous machine texture... i doubt it...

forget it, no one cares  :'(

It looks good...until you run it. Buggy and laggy.

Buggy on both:
Laptop
Intel Core 2 Duo 1.6GHz
3GB RAM in Dual Channel
NVIDIA GeForce 8800m GTS
Windows XP

Desktop
AMD Athlon 4200+ X2
2GB RAM in Dual Channel
NVIDIA GeForce 6100
FreeBSD

Stock maps don't lag unless bp are really high or there are a lot of players, I cap the FPS and 125 and rarely see under that on either machine. It feels like the map has leaks or is too complex in areas with vast detail.

The only area that is laggy for me is the engine room(~40fps). I get my max fps everywhere else in the map(76).

It would be a really good idea to merge and caulk the engines. Several sections of it are formed out of a half dozen brushes when less could be used, and there doesn't seem to be any caulk used on the unseen surfaces. It would help to make the perform a bit better.

Aside from that, the bright yellow and red pipes feel really strange. They look like they should be giving off light but they aren't. Just making them a plain yellow/red colour rather than a non-lightmapped shader would go a long way. Also, you overuse the cyb0rpipes texture in the engine room, especially on the ceiling, but also the floor. I think it would be a good idea to break up the pattern with another less busy texture.

The computer model you use is fullbright. To fix that, add either spawnflags 4 or 6 to it I think. Also, the room with the computer is way too plain. Pipes, crates, hoses, or any sort of filler decoration would be welcome :)

@tinman: hmm there are no leaks anywhere. its just not very well optimized.

@ trak: Thanks for the tips!  :)
the engines are .ase models, and are made out of mostly patch meshes. I'll add caulk on as much as possible, but I'm not sure on how to optimize them further...  maybe just put them in as non-.ase models?  I really don't know what .ase models are for if they don't optimize brushwork...

I found 2 small glitches, although they might be "features" -


By going to the edge here you can get stuck, and without noclip it's impossible to get out.


Same thing here, if you get behind the boxes you're completely stuck.



Both of those are from the generator room, which reminds me: You should add those location tags to your map, especially being that it's so big.

Tremulous always takes screenshots at r_gamma 1.0. It's not his brightness, it's the bit level of the textures and r_overbrightbits working as they shouldn't be.
