    they always do. you'll find them and meet up at some point...and then lose

    2 years ago we ran into them early, was me, Arikado, Eric, Afro_J, Random_Engy, and someone else...maybe m4v1s? I can't remember. but yeah, you'll get somewhat stomped =)

    It was tiny lobster. I was talking to him about that one day. I would love to play in one of those, but don't feel like bringing a computer.

    Hey You
    Pablo The Penguin (you said this last night, right?)
    Bear is Driving
    Asiina
    That Guy
    Durax (I assume?)
    Riokenn (Saturday only)

    PM me more reply here and I'll add you to the on going list.

    From Goose's thread over in SE++, Goose, BEAST!, and possibly Trippy will be going, too.

    I'm pretty sure Rakuen, Ducom, and Nisi will be there.

    Please, call me ebo.

    This next one is probably my last for awhile, way too expensive to keep going year after year.

    Who in these parts has the shittiest computer that still runs TF2?

    Someone wanna fire up Stoneyridge sometime, and point out where framerate dips are? This stuff is harder to test on fast machines because they have so much more headroom.

    Xzzy or Hey You, I don't know who did this... but I am disappoint, son.

    edit: We should be dropping a more optimized version sometime very soon, so wait for that version to test. We definitely need some low end computers to run around the map for us.

    UEAKCrash on
  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular
    Yeah I meant to clean it up. We were running into some t-junction limits so I just kind of hamfisted it to get it working. I was planning on doing nothing but optimizing the next time I got the map so I was hoping no one would notice until then. :rotate:

    I've been doing some experiments on an old beta of the map and a lot of reading regarding the Source engine, so it should be a fast fix.

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular

    I fixed it. I think I took care of the tjunct problem, actually. Waterindicies usually (afaik) indicates how close we are to limit on tjuncts and I have it down to 11%. smug.gif

    edit: wait no, apparently that was a faulty compile. Still 93% lolwhoops.

    Clever neeeeerds, I require assistance!

    I need a slogan for the poster I'm making for Stoneyridge. The company name is Crash Construction. I need a slogan, and I want it to fit into UEAK. My favorite so far has been Unparalleled Erections, Advanced Knowledge, but Hey You vetoed that for obvious reasons.

    Any help on something clever and construction related? The smaller the words the better, because I have to fit it on a poster, like the ones you see around the map.

    Crash Construction:
    Utilizing
    Excellence
    And
    Knowledge

    K is the trickiest. I can't think of many K words that fit in a business poster.

    For something funny, maybe:

    Unparalleled
    Excellence
    And
    Killstreaks

    That is pretty good. The K is by far the bitchiest of letters in there.

    My other one I'm leaning towards now is Unified/ Unionized East-Area Kinship.

    I'll keep yours in mind for sure though.

    edit: Here's the poster so far, I'm pretty proud considering I rarely do much art like this anymore.

    Hat, of course. I drew over an image of a hat I found to make that.

    Fresh off the grill: Here is the link for the new cp_stoneyridge_b7. Note: Map is compressed. --Avoid the wait in the download lines.

    PMavers, if possible, can you use this version to replace the previous one. This new version should address any of the slight balancing issues. Also, your computer and eyes will thank you because this version much more optimized.

    Change log and photos in my previous post.

    If you have friends that run servers, please feel free to pass this version to them. Let us know where the version are going and how are liking the map.

    Does "Lowered health throughout map" mean you made the pick-ups weaker?

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.
  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    Yeah, we lowered the sizes on a bunch.

  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular
    Lose the K, go with Unified
    Kupi wrote: »

    Only by downgrading them a size. Mappers can't adjust the specific health granted by a pickup.

    It's sort of a test after a discussion we had on tf2maps, see how it effects map balance.

    If anyone is interested in creating a poster for Stoneyridge, feel free to make one (following the guidelines of this tutorial, at least up to the point of getting it into a .TGA) If it's good enough we'll toss it in (no promises, though.) The cool part is that if the map gets bought, Valve will buy the image off you to use.

    Just follow that guide and keep it clean and TF2 related. Inside jokes or references are ok but not too much. Just ask yourself if you could picture it in the TF2 setting.

  • Hey YouHey You Registered User regular
    We are honc'ing. Come to server. We might play the latest version of stoneyridge in a couple of maps. Don't miss it.

  • Pablo the PenguinPablo the Penguin Registered User regular
    Excellent Honking gentlemen. And an excellent poster, crash. Also, when were we gonna schedule that meetup?

  • beta_angelbeta_angel ColoradoRegistered User regular
    Crash, I like your poster.

    It certainly makes me want to hire you.

    All I have at work is Paint and I can't picture this in the TF2 setting nor is it in the proper format and I don't think it's good but it is a poster and I did kill 15 minutes so I still consider this a victory:

  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular
    I'm not sure how many posters we could use anyway.. we're really close to the overlay limit and would probably have to delete other details to make room for new details.

    You're right, I should use it as a spray to cover Crash's poster every chance I get.
