Map Suggestion Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi All Aussie here, although I have quit making events entirely I know there is a call for new maps to be added to the server, This thread has no backing from the staff/EM Team however I feel it would be nice if the community got together on this to suggest some new maps.

I recommend finding maps that could be used for multiple purposes, so more then just a specific event type (like a snow map that only works for defense etc)

I would also ask that you check these maps in game as opposed to finding something with a good picture, because trust me some maps exaggerate how good they in their descriptions. 

and make sure it doesn't require games that most players wouldn't own, such as CSS, TF2 etc. dont want a pink and black battlefield with errors 😉

I suggest a few I have checked out

GM_Forest_Artic

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1534857243

DD_Dustbowl 2 Day

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=108093685

Empire Map Collection, not every map could be used but it has quite a few good ones, this is from the same creators as the EMP_Escort and EMP_Coast maps we use.

Gm_winter

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1530254493

rp_arctic_base

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1167829597&searchtext=artic+base

now some of these maps i have suggested aren't like 4K textures with high res models but considering of our map list and download size I think we can live with some average looking maps, we can't be too nit picky considering the star wars map list on the workshop is quite small.

 

Please suggest your own and help out the server, who knows it might get added!

how many maps do we need?

Really as many as the execs allow, I would assume some maps would get swapped out in favor of new ones

@VinniN As there are plans to remove a lot of the current ones, as many as felt useful. We want to keep things fresh, and one way to do that, is to rotate out old maps in favour of new ones!

Heres some maps I Found, hope it helps!

gm_mircale_forest, we dont have alot of forest maps so this would be nice

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1191470432&searchtext=forest

gm_forest_park. this map is very dark which makes it a little spooky, could be good for stealth events 

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1449721682&searchtext=forest

gm_seastation, i thought this would be cool for underwater events, like that water planet from the clone wars

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=492218857&searchtext=underwater

gm_warmap this map is pretty neat as it seems like you could do just about anything with it.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=105630061&searchtext=hills

rp_ryloth this map would be nice because its star wars and we could do a ryloth event

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1536246183&searchtext=star+wars

thats all i got so far. happy map hunting

some new maps I have had a glance at

GM_Blackwoods: A forest type map that has flattish areas and quite a bit of trees, I can imagine some nice events could take place here, plus its AI Noded

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1756466920

gm_kashyyyk, Map by Benigane of the wookiee Homeworld, this could be pretty good for events as it is an actual star wars map

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=594141404

freespace snow and night: A map that is snowy and is at night, really this map is designed for people to do whatever they want and is NPC Noded!

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=357908889

RP_station this is a star wars themed space station... yep

This is pretty dope. Didn't we use gm_kashyyk and similar maps before? What happened with those?

we used rp_kashyyyk_jungle way back when however due to new player count and overall increase of lag loading the map caused a server crash, so we were forced to get rid of it. I dont believe we have officially used this version of Kashyyyk however, and since we have used Benigane maps in the past I thought this would be a good addition. but thats up to @s8ncaat to decide

I'm waiting for the EM team to compile a list of maps for the server, thank you to everyone suggesting content! We'll be addressing this soon.
