Kallisti Wharf - Office Map Tileset
« on: December 16, 2012, 09:42:41 PM »
Today is a good day ;D

Codewalker posted how to get this "map" here:
http://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php/topic,7238.msg93180.html#msg93180

Credit goes to Leandro and Codewalker for joining together and finding this.

This thread is for pictures I will be taking of it, much like my other KW thread. (shameless plug http://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php/topic,6690.0.html)

I am running full partial Ultra Mode (Ambient Occlusion is off and Shadows are at lowest) for these screens.
(except the first two, had my settings lower there)

LET US BEGIN

I have finished going through the map.

I didn't know what to expect when I ran Codewalker's, praise his name, demo but it certainly wasn't what I just saw. As the office just seemed to keep going and around each corner revealed something even more amazing I could feel the smile getting bigger on my face. ;D And then I realized I'd never actually get to have a character walk around such an amazing map. :gonk: But I can't stop thinking about all the different ways I can use this map in demos. :roll: I'm so confused!

Man, those are gorgeous. I'm going to have to set that map up myself.

You of little faith. Just because you can't go back to playing in the city two weeks after the servers were plugged, you start saying dirty words like "never".

Like I've been saying since day 1, I WILL be playing City of Heroes again. I trust. :D

It looks absolutely beautiful, the work that was done on this zone is just... stunning. I mean, even with the similarly styled buildings cropping up, or old pieces interspersed with the new, it's so clearly a work that was going to be a defining moment. It still will be.

I've always said that someday, when I have children, I intend to play City of Heroes with them. Not only spending time together, but sharing it with them and watching them experience the wonder of it for the first time as they explore.

My plans haven't changed.

Wow, the pics just get better and better! I really need to work on adding that map today so I can look at it...and add some toons to it :D

Heh. It really reminds me a bit of the Wolfram & Hart offices from the 5th season of Angel.

I tried to "play up" the feel of the images I took, for ambience, etc.

They are very nice pics. The only thing I noticed that was missing is a shot of the skylight in Lobby 3 :)

Thanks. I tried to take a picture of it, but felt I couldn't get the right angle.

That and, it shouldn't be spoiled.

As for the map itself, I like it. My only complaint is that the use of cubemaps for the windows doesn't quite 'feel' right to me. They look great in screenshots, but when you move around it seems a little fake.

I have an SG base I really want that flame sculpture for also.

That sculpture appears in the main KW zone as well.

Perhaps it was a symbol of importance? That or a nice set piece, at least.

I should mention that there's an area in the office here, with a see through floor, I assume of glass.

Seemed kinda fragile :P

I was weak! I had a moment of doubt! Can you find it in your heart coding to forgive this poor demoeditor? :gonk:

Actually the flame sculpture also appears in Neutropolis, I think. It may be a variation on that one, I haven't looked closely.

Really?

Maybe it's just Praetorian decoration, then.

Kallisti Wharf apparently was going to be in Praetoria.
