Lets create a few smaller maps

    At times when the server is within 10-20 people our map list fails to accommodate our friends. We currently have very few maps that make sense for those numbers. Any thoughts? Personally my next project after zm_train, will be a small map fitting those needs.

    Edit: this is geared towards zm1

      Edit maps to cut off half the map if there aren't enough people?

      Thats how they did it in CoD

      I have tried to make smaller maps. They always seem to grow on me though.

        We can't make something small. You start building and your idea just keeps growing and growing. Until you've created a monster that can't be stopped and you unleash it unto the public and they are horrified. D:

          Small maps are fine so long as they work well with a full house too.

          I'd say small maps are the best especially with large population. For example, lila panic or deep thought. You generally know all the spots and it doesn't take much time to look around for humans when you are zombie.

          We had a few maps with this built in a long time ago. People don't do it anymore though.

          Well... it can be done with most of the maps we have now but then there will be a big fuss/heated debate as to which parts should or shouldn't be cut off. It's not too complicated for a simple cut off but it will confuse the fuck out of people when there is a door they normally can go through but can't, etc.

              There is no better map then unpanic as sajak laid which is the smallest. It can be whatever size you want it to be but the gameplay has to be fun and not laggy. Also, don't make a map like kyle

              I like the idea of

              "This area doesn't fucking exist anymore. If that wasn't already apperant!"

              :grin:?

              IMO, Unpanic isn't that small--just well-layered.

              SMALL maps like Penumbra or cramped maps like GHS Flats. . .mmm, I love the chaos and the paranoia.

              It then becomes very 1 sided.
