I just found out there is a holomatch map of the defiant. Does anyone else think that we should do a holomatch virtual game sometime? It would be hard to get everyone on at the same time, but not impossible. The holomatch defiant map currently only has decks 1 and 2, which themselves are incomplete, but the author (Wolf359) is planning to add decks 3 and 4, and stick in as many rooms as the game can handle.

We tried it here at my house (Starbase 5, Manhunter, and myself) and it worked fairly well except that to use the transporter you have to enable cheats to give yourself a personal transporter device, and then you end up beaming to the captain's ready room. Maybe Dobberman and Wolf359 should get together and make a transporter link between the defiant-class ship and the 10to5. Grin

The 10to5 is so small, it should only take a few hours.

if you are doing the mapping, can you start right now and put it on your site when finished.

you could ask the guy (wolf359) who made the defiant map to do that

The finished defiant is waiting to be released along with the ds9 balance of power mod, (the defiant itself isn't finished yet though)

I'm on a 56k aswell and I can't get an upgrade simply because it isn't here yet. Broadband is on the way but it will be 5 years before it reaches me. It's in Dublin now, so it shouldn't be too long before its available for Vanhal

I've never made a map and if you know how to fix everything then i'd give it another try.

Ok for startes I will not come back to maping yet!!!

(Althow I admit thair were some times that I was temted to)

But I will still help anone one with a maping problem to the best of my ability!

Here is how you fix a leak

When you compile a map leave Ef radent open and when you finish a read line will apear. Find the line and thair will be your leak. Just make a solid brush and snug it tight aganst the spot whair thair is a leak.

Now the best way to pervent leacks is by making a big box at the begining and puting evything inside it.

he is a mapinf totorial that a good firend of mine FOX made a long time ago. He was my teacher and he is a well nowen and respected maper

it has a section about leaks in the errors section.

I've played it. It is big enough right now, but if we get more people it won't be. Also, there are lots of places where you get stuck.

Well he can't really come back, he was banned. Although they say if he apoligises they will let him come back.

How can he apologise if he's banned?

Why was he banned?

He can send an email to them to apologise. But I think that a few people didnt want to move to a new board because it was away from the others, it was a change, and he'd lose his post count Wink

I don't mind the USS FliX, but I would prefer to use the Defiant map because that's what kind of ship we are on. The Defiant map doesn't have a mess hall. I don't know why. It's not 100% according to the deck maps.

Another reason to use the defiant map is so that people don't get lost anymore. Wink
