Map "The Slums"

The Slums
Single Player
(map requires Plasma Pack)
This is a standalone map, no complicated story. But who needs one anyway? ;) Caleb wakes up in the streetcorner by a raindrop hitting the bring of his hat. Caleb mumbles.. "I need to find some real shelter, I hate being wet in the morning".. After only taking a few steps he notices that something is not right, "where are all the people?" caleb thinks to himself. Not long before he meets face to face with a zombie. In Caleb's own words, here we go again. Time to re-decorate the slums.. I hear red is a good color..

Other info: This map was started about a year ago, ran into some big problems that nearly killed the whole map.
Luckily with the help of Bloodmapedit I was able to fix it up, lot's of things had to be re-done. But finally the map is here to play.
Playtime should be about 10 - 14 minutes. Play on extra crispy if you are an experienced blood-player and want a real challenge.

I got a chance to take a look at this, it makes me want to work better if i ever tryed to do a detail blood map. Seems like alot of work, and you did a good job with the lighting and shading.

Great job of course. In the movie theatre is there a projection room like the duke map Hollywood???

I have finally played the level. And I must say it's the best urban level for Blood.

I absolutely love the way you decorated the level with sprites. The paper flying was a cool feature and the washing machine too. The monkey wrestling is a funny point as the popcorn machine is.

The atmosphere was cool and it really catches the Blood dark feeling. I saw some original sprite uses like the street at the end of the level or the WC.

That final surprised me a lot. It wasn't a hard fight but I had to run and avoid the attacks.

Excellent job, man. 5/5.

Well, a very pretty map. But it's really dark in this map! I think it is just a bit to dark, well almost every way is dark! Although the (Dark) is anyway pleasant well. A lot detail i can see on this map: -Very nice. "(Detail)" Yeah everyone got his one style to create maps ;) Me self, watch not really so much on details i just make more some action maps! -With lot of special effects! A great job! Regards.

PS: I asked you in those days in the video on your channel. How you can make flying new papers.
*news paper* sry

It's dark but not to the point where you can't see anything. There was however a video on YouTube that was barely visible but in Blood this map looks great.

Hopefully we will see more unfinished maps by Tek in 2014
Happy NY already everybody!

..and thank christ pesky mapedit didn't destroy the map and you were able to complete the thing!

Mapedit is not really to blame, it's the person (mis)using it that is responsible for potential messy work. When abiding all of Mapedit's rules it's very unlikely to F### up. If you really know exactly what you're doing you can take 'risks'.

Dont leave us hanging... give us some pointers on how to avoid what is termed as a "misuse".
known on 2013-12-31
Alright, a misuse is anything that results in a F-up.
By the time the same thing happens again you should know not to do it again.
It's an individual learning process since each mapper is using different ways.

The thing I did wrong which I thought was ok according to mapedits rules was to copy/paste a few windows. I made the points where the window will connect when dragging it over, worked for the first windows. Suddenly I noticed that the other few windows had double lines allover, this was the FIRST problem. Was able to fix it though after deleting a portion of the map.
Second big problem I have no explanation for, problem was that suddenly the framerate was starting to go down when playing the map. It would decrease about 1 - 2 frames every minute even when standing still, until it was unplayable. The thing that fixed this in the end was to copy the whole map to a new map, which meant all my x-sectors/sprites were reset. I had to redo every effect, this made me lose interest for the map for many months. Until I finally decided to get it finished not long ago.

Fantastic damn map, dude! Already my favorite map made by anyone. Get this map everybody!

BME on 2013-12-29 comment
Great atmosphere (once again) with the lighting, fog, and rainy streets, I like the enemy build-up and scripted surprises and other little details like the train. The map was much bigger than I had anticipated and you've managed to give it a vast city feeling with much diversity and the end had a big climax

Very enjoyable map, excellent!
