November 17th stream + map downloads for Paragon Chat!
« on: November 17, 2018, 03:28:00 AM »

I hope that got your attention!

November 17th at 2PM EST I'll be hosting a Twitch Stream with Demon Hunter, the guy who put together the Architect extension in Pocket D, answering questions about map editing and revealing a couple of map projects that have been in the works for a while: an expansion of the Vanguard base in the Rikti War Zone, and a near-final version of Kallisti Wharf, with all the geometry holes filled in with actual geometry. Don't miss it!

Edit: The stream is now over, you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5_Q4Qe1Qoo

I'll ask so someone else won't have to -- will there be an Echo of Kallisti Wharf containing the original map?

No point, the "original" Kallisti Wharf is an incomplete Instanced Outdoor Mission map (that's what IOM means) and it will still be there for manually adding to zone.cfg if you want. This is going to have a different map name and ID number.

Who's this Demon Hunter guy? Oh! Right! Yes, I'll be there!

Considering that this is the kind of stuff I've been experimenting with myself recently, I'll be there. Will it be possible to have a recording of the Twitch stream available after it's over?

Can someone 'sticky' the announcement at the top of the Paragon Chat global channel for folks who haven't seen it elsewhere?

Will the map work for Icon?

Could the War Walls be removed?  They tend to destroy the scene when taking screenshots.

Will the stadium be completed?   Or rather, I'd like to see a smaller completed stadium map.  Even two, one empty, one full of fans (what colors should they be wearing?)


I like the new graphics, but I miss the varied store fronts of Paragon and Rogue Isles in the Praetoria maps.  Looks like Khallisti Wharf also lacks shops.  :(   


Yeah, a lot to ask for.  Give me some map making tool so I don't have to fumble around with bits and hit or miss attempts (I'm too old of a dog to learn new things).  I'll send a gift card for Mega Mart if someone can do that.  ;)

So How does this map editing work, and how do you share it with other people,

also would this mean we could edit recluses victory to actually be recluses victory and not the hero win state  of recluses victory?

Too bad the in-game map doesn't work in that zone.

It could be made to work, and in fact the exits ARE displayed in the map if you make it work. Maybe when it's officially included in Paragon Chat? Remember that it's still not finished due to DH's computer situation.

Someone asked on stream where KW is in relation of the other city zones. While we don't know the official canon answer, I place it between IP and SC, and I made a map with it in that location:



You will notice that the map has an extra stop in Independence Port south as well. That's one of the early map modifications I did to make the zone faster to navigate, but it was never published anywhere, so that makes the map slightly inaccurate. My map also moves Eden slightly and connects it to The Hive, because it always bugged me that The Hive was missing from the city map.

I figure the stuffy Old Money live in Venice while the hip New Money lives in Kallisti Wharf.
