    [MAP] (Bramburg)- Dam Revenge V2 - Released

    This is a conversion of Bramburg Dam (mp_dam) designed and released by Splashdamage for Return to Castle Wolfenstein. It is based on the corresponding map 'dam' which was part of RTCW 1.0 single player campaign. All credits go to the developers at Splashdamage who designed this great map for RTCW, so in no way you are allowed to make money with it.

    This is a map conversion.

    Wonderful map. Awesome this map conversion. And I like the shrine to remember a clan member that passed away. Very nice work here, not only from SD but also from you Tardis.

    Knowing that SD developed the first map my first impression was that now more than a decade later we are more focused on the details as SD developers were in the first days some details are missing here and some blending would not hurt either. But that's how SD handled it back then...

    Great work

    clean up your etserver mcbeth, the texture you post wich is missing is not missing in a clean install of et.

    But there are 2 other things missing.

    Re: [MAP] (Bramburg)- Dam Revenge V2 - Released

    so you didnt try it with a clean install of et? A clean et means there should be only pak0.pk3, mp_bin.pk3 and the map in etmain. then start your et. go to host game. choose the map and watch your missing texture. Then you will see the texture is for **** sake not missing lol.
    the second screenshot i see too

    Re: [MAP] (Bramburg)- Dam Revenge V2 - Released

    The screenshots look great.
    I will give it a test in the next few days and come back here for feedback

    The dedication of the map is a very nice gesture of you.

    I will post something more constructive once I've tested the map.
    Cheers

    Re: [MAP] (Bramburg)- Dam Revenge V2 - Released

    we tested the map on server with arround 30 players, the objective is great.
    The Axis spawn on cp is hard to get outside. A bit small for that amount of players and if there is arty on door outside, flamer and sniper.
    If the tank arrived and blowed up the door, it would be nice if there is a next spawn. Because the truck has a far way from cp to the truck.
    I added more time and we got the obj done. Works all well.
    FPS are fine in any place.

    Great work as always!

    I believe SD just worked on ET, not RtCW ^^' Map design might be from id Software then

    Re: [MAP] (Bramburg)- Dam Revenge V2 - Released

    This just a scam. This 'release' as well as the posters' first release here are an altered copy of my conversion "Bramburg Dam beta1" which I released in 2007. Even the textfile in the .pk3 is largely a copy&paste job, tough the poster removed my email that my conversion of 2007 contains.

    See for yourselves:

    Actually I wouldn't mind but I saw you are dedicating 'your' work to a deceased person. I find this a questionable behaviour, that's why I spoke up.

    While it is nice to see old mappers coming back, I hardly understand your argument.

    The last sentence sums it up quite well: "This map is a conversion" and by the way, so is yours. Both your maps are largely based on an existing map from RtCW and by no means do you hold the exclusive right to convert an existing RtCW MP map to ET. I do not want to discard the amount of work that went into your version of Bramburg Dam, because I do understand the workload of a map. However, to be honest you can hardly take credit for the existing structures that you 'copied' (to use your words). In his post he made it quite obvious, that the credit goes to Splashdamage for their original map. The map that you also used as a base for your 'conversion', so claiming the whole Bramburg Dam setting is your creation is quite a bold move.

    I haven't checked the ReadME, but if it is really a copy/paste of yours and if he really used your conversion as a base and not the original map from Splashdamage, then I agree with you that a note in the credits would've been the proper thing to do. Nevertheless, Splashdamage remains the original author of the map that the both of you converted and he credited them appropriately.

    Re: [MAP] (Bramburg)- Dam Revenge V2 - Released

    First of all thank you for your reply, I appreciate every input altough I have to admit I expected to see the OP speaking up. As you are having trouble understanding my argument, let me help you with that.
    I haven't checked the ReadME
    No, you have not. It would have been the proper move though, especially before leaping to someone's defense. Never mind, let me do that for you:

    Code:
    Bramburg Dam (et_dam) Beta 1 for ET
    
    This is a conversion of Bramburg Dam (mp_dam) designed and released by Splashdamage for Return to Castle Wolfenstein. It is based on the corresponding map 'dam' which was part of RTCW 1.0 single player campaign. All credits go to the developers at Splashdamage who designed this great map for RTCW, so in no way you are allowed to make money with it. I left layout and gameplay widely untouched. This map conversion was built for fun only, so donít expect much from it. Iím just a hobby mapper. ;)
    
    Probably best played with a maximum of 6-8 players per team, as the map isn't very large and gameplay extends only to a limited part of it (most of the axis side of the dam isn't really involved). The map surely isnít suitable for large public servers with 30+ players. Stopwatch-mode should be cool, having map concept and objectives layout in mind.
    
    Few notes: 
    
    1) There is a map-entry called "et_dam" in the database of splatterladder.com, however, there is no info or download-link and I have never ever heard of such a map before or seen it somewhere for ET. So, if there's a conversion out already that I'm not aware of ... here's another. So what, it's just a fun project anyway. :)
    
    2) Yes, this map is dark. So was mp_dam.
    
    4) Changes:
    - mapscript & several entities related to spawning reworked to fit ET needs.
    - timelimit raised by 5 min to 15 min. 
    - some RTCW-only textures replaced by ET-textures
    - most RTCW-sounds replaced with comparable stock ET-sounds
    - most RTCW-models replaced with comparable stock ET-models
    - terrain re-textured using DotProduct2 shader + Alpha Fade system. Credits to Simon "Sock" O'Callaghan.
    
    Why a beta?
    
    Simple: I have no clanmates for map-testing as I have no clan. Youíre the guinea-pigs.
    
    Ah yes, the commandmap is crappy, no doubt. If youíre a Photoshop-guru and want to help out: you are welcome, I'll send you the tracemap! (Iím serious!)
    
    If there's no input at all, I'll just see what errors I can find myself and throw out a 'final'.
    
    Contact me for error reports or suggestions: urachus@web.de
    
    
    
    Cheers,
    pr0t3st a.k.a. Ramon
    
    
    
    To-Do list:
    
    - add splashdamage-logo (poster?)
    - fix textures here and there 
    - Add texture-layer (moon) to sky-shader?
    - do better terrain lightening/alpha- and phong-shading, maybe
    - get a better command map Ö hmmh
    - fix camerascript for the spotlights at the dam towers. They do some
      weired movements at mapstart. :P
    If you had done it you certainly had noticed that that quote of yours above is actually my textfile, word by word. That is almost funny now as you use it to carefully lay out in front of me that I have no exclusive rights, that the credit goes to SD etc. Thank you for that, but as you can see I knew that already, I knew back in 2007. For the rest, due to gameplay, texture and shader alterations he or his affiliates must have done some work on their own, that is undisputed. Still, finding my words of the textfile that is included in the 2007-.pk3 in conjunction with this release is leaving me unhappy. Finding files with the same 'modified'-timestamp of 25.07.2007, 13:39 in both my work of 2007 and his work of 2015 does not comfort me as well. Claiming to know the workload of a map, even if it is just a conversion, and considering it is not my map of course and everyone can do a conversion and all rights and credits remain with SD, I hope you can understand that.
    In his post he made it quite obvious, that the credit goes to Splashdamage for their original map. The map that you also used as a base for your 'conversion', so claiming the whole Bramburg Dam setting is your creation is quite a bold move.
    Please consider the fact that I made that obvious in 2007 already, see code section above. Saying that I claim the whole setting as my own creation is entirely unfounded, it is simply not true. I have said it is an altered copy of my conversion, and that's for everyone to see.

    Re: [MAP] (Bramburg)- Dam Revenge V2 - Released

    Hahaha
    Okay, I certainly have to apologize to you. I hope you do understand that from my perspective it looked like you claimed that he stole your Bramburg Dam map concept and not your conversion. I felt like I had to say something that you can't be protective of the map concept, since you also converted it from SD. I didn't realize that he based his work completely on yours, but rather thought he made another conversion of the same map that you made a conversion of.
    I see the flaw in my thinking now and I apologize.^^ You definitely deserve credit for your work. To explain the laughing above, I didn't really expect the readME was actually a copy/paste (except for your email). I thought that was an exaggeration for effect.

    Oh well, I realize I was wrong. Let's see if Tardis answers to this thread.
