Map conversion: RTCW -> WildWest

Post by Westernman999 » Sat Feb 13, 2010 9:00 pm

Hey there!

How difficult it is, to convert a map from RTCW to WW ?

There are a few maps i would play also in WW !

For example Toysoldiers or Wizernes !

So, can anybody help ?

See you later partner !

This depends of version of "RTCW"

meaning

RTCW = engine 1.4
RTCWET = engine 2.55 ( and beyond)
Wildwest 1.6 is a total conversion of RTCW 1.4 so any RTCW map is playable under the wildwest
however , all the maps need to be converted into the wildwest standard

in a nutshell this basicly is

point pre A*** The map source .. ****
a) no rtcw textures ( this is distrubutablewise)
b) the original map maker has to consent into the map beeing converted
c) general knowledge of map making and map creating within GTK radiant is a mandatory.
d) scripting is also a mandatory
e) the map doesn't have to look western but is sure would look more better ...

Also, if map is for ET it will have different player models (one of the reasons we didn't make a quick port to it) so that ET maps may need to be tweeked for the different player modles (like the western quake3 maps that needed doors and windows modified. This could be a simple task or like sanchulo a major undertaking.

OMG Toysoldiers. I thought I was the only one who remembered that map! That map is pure fun. I'd love to play it in Wildwest. Since noone in RTCW will play it anymore (and there's another problem: that map crashes the server on RTCW 1.33 (?) and up).

:D

Do you need me to send any files from rtcw? Sorry if this is a stupid question... I don't know anything about shaders or mapping, but I do have the full install. :D
