[IN PROGRESS] Unnamed arena map



  • Hello guys,

    after watching the tutorials from Bucky on YouTube I started to work on my very first map ever. I wanted something very easy for the start so I thought I would just make a bigger arena map. I like arena, but I always thought it is too small for ffa and classic duels.

    So this is what I have now after some hours:



    What do you think so far? Any suggestions?

    And does anyone know how costly the spectators are performance wise?



  • Watching Bucky at the moment :D

    I like the fact, the map is not too filled with stuff. Don’t clutter it, like the original arena. I always thought it was a shame, you could barely walk 3 meters without walking into something. It’s supposed to be an arena, with nice open spaces to fight :D

    Sure, a few decorations and differences in height would be good, but I think you already know that! :)

    Maybe a few trees behind the walls, you then can see through those “windows” so it looks less like it’s flying.

    Generally decorations on the walls. Torches, banners etc.

    But so far I imagine this map to be pretty fun to play on. Especially for classic-duels! Nice, open spaces.

    The spectators shouldn’t be too costly. When you go near them, you can see they are pretty low-poly. Actually I have no idea though ^^



  • Looks like its gonna be hell though for non archers. Good map though.

    Thanks! Yeah, I am going to add some stuff to give some cover from archers in FFA. But I plan to still have more open space to fight in than Moor has for classic duels.

    Good idea to add something behind the windows! Thanks!



  • Looking good man. I’ve been working on an arena style map for a couple days myself.
