« on: August 04, 2006, 04:01:56 AM »
**I am just pasting posts from interlopers so I dont have to retype it** \ \

NOTE: THIS IS ONLY THE SPAWN

Since my last map seems to have been a success, I have decided to make another. This map will address many of the issues people have with the first one, such as the jail being to big, the map being too short, the map being too easy.. etc. This map will be twice as long as any surf map you have ever played before, and will be 10x harder. I am going to be designing alot of NEW surf ramps, never seen before and also implementing new surf_ related map ideas. The jail will be much smaller, but will be just as rewarding for those few who make it to the end. This spawn is a taste of the new design ideas I will be using throughout this map. This map will not be so blocky like the first. \ Enjoy

This shows the outside noclip view of the first area. nothing big has changed, cept for the ramps and their positions. added a few secrets and such. So far in this area there is 6 secrets. probably add another before its done.

Now for a new post. This is just the first area of my map. I am wanting this to be much longer than most maps out there. There will be several areas, each getting much harder. But the further you go, the better rewarded you are when you get to the jail \

Looks interesting although is it just another version of your first map? Because the theme seems to be the same and the name makes me think its version 2.

About it being double the length it really doesn't look that long and about it being x10 harder. This is just suggestion but if you make it that hard its doubtful people will play it, but I doubt you'll be able to make it that hard.

yeah 10x is just a placebo lolz, but it will be harder though. And thats just the 1st area, there will several more areas, that are much much longer than that one. I name it 2, because its a whole new map, just with the same theme, but the brush work is more detailed now.

Looks well made, but it also looks like the same thing as the first surf_akai. Unless I am mistaken, it is still a spawn, with a linear surf to an end prison, with no insentive to start over again? Although I don't see any of those pointless mazes, so this will be a better map than the first I think.

and by the way, it is impossible to make a map hard if you want it to be played on any server. I have since learned the perils of making maps difficult, due to tick rate. If it is hard for 66 or 33, it is easy on 100. if it is hard on 100, it is too difficult on 66 and impossible (literally) on 33.

Akai, if you ever make your way back to these forums, answer me this:  Is that texture lighting you use in that map?  If so how about a tutorial on it.

no, its not textured lighting. Just alot of compiles and alot of work to make everything light up right. I cant even think of how many compiles I have done on that area there alone. Atleast over 200

Don't mind smooth, hes a fucking 13 year old ass hat from nl. I can't wait for Akai 2, Akai 1 was an exceptional map that is probably one of the overall best surf maps made thus far.

Yeah seriously.... Akai 1 is probably my favorite map of all time thus far, it is interesting and fun to surf on, and there are so many secrets and shortcuts that it makes things different every time you go through.  I am extremely happy to see that you're putting out a second map, and from what I can see thus far, it looks like it's going to be amazing!!!!

Keep up the great work!

I am still working on it from time to time. Just not as much as I probably sure. Between me falling in love with ZombieMod, and work, and other things. I haven't really had much time to sit down and plan out the remaining areas. I would say now, its sitting @ about 40% complete. I am hoping to have it done before the end of the year.

Thanks for giving me the incentive to keep on with it though. Hearing the compliments about my first map always makes me want to map \

fucking akai.  Ruins all maps on the server because of his DEV textures.  Then He teases us with a new map that hopefully I will like because I thought the first one had good ideas but was just too linear and controlled.  AKAI, FUCK ZOMBIE MOD. Get back to surf, and finish this map.

Akai, I am a huge fan of your first map. I think the work was amazing. You said it right, the jail IS too big, and the surfing is not long and pretty much easy. But STILL, the map was very well presented, I really enjoy the orange blast color (same color as my car lol), and it was well organized.
I cannot wait for Akai2, if it will be as you described...holy cow I cannot wait to surf on it. Please finish it!! lol Good luck.

omgomg yesyes.

akai was really fun. I remember when me and friends figured out the secret to the doors at the end.
Was also pretty cool to learn some new tricks/areas after having played the map for 5+ months.

I like a good surf map like this, as long as it isn't too stressed-out like commune or superhappier. At least your map has fighting AND excellent surf.

What annoys me most about akai is having to stop surfing all the time. As I see in that screenshots you have to stop surfing and walk. Blah.

Just played a little bit of Akai 2 beta. . . No you cannot have the file. . .  It looks damn nice for Dev textures.  Im not the biggest fan of dev textures but if I were to use them I hope my map would look this good.

Woo, jealous much? \

Akai was an instant classic for good reason... I can't wait to see what you bring with 2, it's one of the more popular maps on the server bro_c and I admin at.

I find his use of dev textures really nice as well. Most surf maps are shitty looking and use the same tacky, mismatching kitchen-tile looking textures and don't realize how bad it looks. On the other hand, other maps that use dev textures are nowhere near as good looking as akai's.

True that.

Akai actually has content here. You have to think outside of the box to succeed; it's not just more of the same.
