Title: Need Waypoints
Post by: Vmaster on March 01, 2008, 06:55:05 pm
First, to clear things up, this is NOT my map. But I was wondering if anyone could waypoint it and post it back up here. thanks

I would attempt to do this myself, but the last time I tried to waypoint a map a large portal opened up in my wall, shot out a little green leperchaun that did a river dance and shouted "HUMDIPPER!" and also wore a silly hat.

Yes, and then his computer subsequently exploded in a shower of mint chocolate and vodka.</not>

Waypointing's a bitch, but the key is to keep the waypoints in a way that the bots can follow. In other words, keep the points hugging the ground if possible, and gauge the jet distance for the map when you need to make 'em fly. If they can't reach a point on the first try, they'll be stuck trying to endlessly reach it.

You should get permission from the author before someone waypoints it.
