Kallisti Wharf
« on: December 03, 2012, 09:32:08 PM »
I have finished taking screens of both versions of the map. This thread will no longer be updated.

I couldn't find any loading screens, music, etc for the zone.


Thanks to Codewalker posting the KW map names, I've taken some screenshots.

They are disheartening, seeing what we've lost, and could've had.

There was going to be a new Task Force here: Contacts/Kallisti_Wharf/KW_TaskForce.npc

Along with the above, I found three maps designated TF:

maps/missions/Unique/i24_Unique_Maps/KW_TaskStrikeForce/IOM_Cap_Aeon_AE.txt (appears to be regular Cap au Diable)
maps/missions/Unique/i24_Unique_Maps/KW_TaskStrikeForce/IOM_Ocean_Research_Site.txt (Appears to be a fleet of ships on water)
maps/missions/Unique/i24_Unique_Maps/KW_TaskStrikeForce/IOM_Space_Asteroids.txt (tested, nothing there, all black void)

There was going to be a building called "Statesman One" in the area as well:

object_library/City_Zones/Kallisti_Wharf/Buildings/SkyScrapers/Statesman_One/Statesman_One_Building.rootnames

I believe it is the one major thing missing from both versions of the zone, along with the needed touch-ups, etc.

Images of the area proper are below.

From a Very Early version of the zone:

Nice catch on that!

And yeah, as if I needed more reasons to be depressed.

I want to say THANKS for your work on this, Arachnion.  I've taken a good bit of comfort and cheer from seeing various of things you and others have posted.

I'd never seen the gas station before.  Following that link brought me to:  http://paragonwiki.com/wiki/April_Fools%27_Day  where scrolling down there's the amusing interview about XP as well as my fave, the April Fools Day banner of 4/1/12.

You're welcome.

I know these efforts are nothing like having the game experience back in actuality, but hey.

You do what you can, right?

I only pointed out the gas station because it's the one in KW, that means Kallisti Wharf was being worked on (or just created) in 2011.

That gas station has been around for a while. It was in the run-down part of Neutropolis, and was also the focus of an instanced mission against Arachnos. IIRC it was in Dark Watcher's warden arc.

Edit: I remembered wrong. It was in one of Mother Mayhem's missions.

I would love to explore this myself even if it's by a demoplayback. So is there a handy demofile that exists so I can have a gander (since my efforts to create one crashed the client ;D )

Here you go.

HOWEVER, there is a bit of work needed to navigate them.

1. You need Cameraman by Codewalker/Leandro http://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php/topic,5623.0.html

2. Put the files from KW-demos.rar into your client_demos folder in your CoH beta folder

3. Load up a demo, hit F2, then open Cameraman program, drag the slider to "Fly"

4. Use WASD keys and your mouse to control the camera, and fly through the war walls in the distance, that is how I get into the map (I'm REALLY BAD with coordinates and camera positioning)

5. There you go.

http://www.speedyshare.com/8UwR2/download/KW-Demos.rar

EDIT: Oh, right. You need the full, last updated version of the I24 Beta client to view the Kallisti map. Send Leandro a PM if you don't have it, subject "I24 beta client please"

 :P

Awesome, thank you.

And I did have the foresight to update all my clients; live, test and beta before the closedown and stop the NCLauncher from loading on startup :D

Hrm, when I load up the demo I get people walking on the sky, assorted doors, and I don't see any war walls.

Strange. Which demo, Early or Later?

Did you go into F2 Free camera mode and look around?

The maps should both work.

Yup, I did indeed go into F2 Free Cam mode, and I tried both demos. I had also gotten the I24 client from Leandro, and that's where I placed the maps.

Weird :-\

They work for me, sorry man.

Maybe try putting in the map names on a demo yourself? Just copy one of your existing ones, open it, and replace the map name at the top. I posted the KW map names in TA's thread around here somewhere, about unique maps. Demo Recording sub-forum maybe?

I will have a look myself, then.

???

EDIT:
I just loaded up both demos, they start with my character facing the War Walls... which were plain as day.

How are you launching your demos, Corvus? Shortcut switches, or with a program?

I use Zloth's Demo Launcher, http://home.roadrunner.com/~dasloth/CoH/Demos/Launcher.zip and after choosing the "Special" option, then choosing Beta's cityofheroes.exe, selecting a Kallisti demo and launching it works.
