# 1 New Maps this Year??
02-14-2011, 11:36 AM
I know this has been a requested item for awhile. I am wondering how long it would take to actually make a few new C&H and Arena maps? 8 Hours of work for a dev? Hell, If we can make them in the Foundry that might be quicker and allow players to vote on them.

Anyone have good Ideas for PVP maps?

I would like to see something like the Vault interior as one for an Arena.

Anything would be nice and sooner.

The problem is with everything else the Dev's are doing the reason they haven't brought out new maps is new maps were not really equal to other things in terms of priority. New maps are getting requested, so are a hundred other things. They haven't really had the 8 spare man hours.

Deep space:-
A large space map with asingle asterod at it's centre (acting as a focal point) and a nebula to the side. The Nebula would have similar effects to the one in the vault, where teamscan try to even the score by entering it. Perhaps best used for OPVP.

Blackhole zone:-
A map where "blackholes" start appearing randomly.

Defend Starbase:-
One team has to assault a starbase (like ESD and the Ganalda station), while the other has to defend it.

i bet theyre release a map with a whole new game mode. i think itll be called assault. there will be several points on that map that when you beam away teams too you subtract a few points from the other teams score and add a couple to your own....

waaaaaaaiiiit a minute...

Craptic: "We are working on a new PvP map that will be from a future weekly mission map. We don't know when we will get around to doing it but at some point we most likely will do this. Of course we are not saying that we for sure will be doing it but there is a pretty good chance that this actually possibly could happen."


Game has been out over a year and you can't get some ****** programmers to make a new space PvP map?! You seriously need ideas? OK...here is one....start off with space and throw in some dumb space debris to fly around....In the middle make a giant POOP PILE shaped building with a giant sign in front of it that says "Cryptic Brain Trust" on it. I'll see if I can come up with a few more.

....As I said before the problem they have is lack of man hours for people to make this. The Dev's are working on content for other things. This is why they are making as many missions as possible for both factions instead of faction specific content. They do not have the man power available to split up their workload further beyond what it is at.

Honestly how many man hours does it take to make a new space pvp map for arena? I mean they seem to have plenty of available man hours to make new costumes to sell in the c-store. Of course I guess it has been only a year and expecting even a single new map is too much. Or, you know fixing the pvp que problem after what is close to 48 hours at this point.......but yea gg cryptic.

But who wants a new arena map? I mean seriously, half the time people are fighting at the spawn point and the other half 50 km about the nearest visible object in hope of out-spiraling escorts. Whether you're in Solar Wind or Cracked Planetoid makes no difference. When was the last time you fought a battle in the Metreon gas nebula?

We could use a new Capture & Hold Map a lot more. At least there is a reason to "interact" with the various objects. But I imagine getting those maps right and somewhat balanced is a lot harder.
And even more we could use new game modes.
