it should be noted for this map that in 1.5.1 it has gone though a rehaul polystructure wise and should be more smooth.

The old version is much better in my opinion. No one played in Airpirates after the remake. It's weird somehow... The only think that is better in this version is the lighthouse.
Theres a lot of .png scenary too!

I admit the new  (current?) airpirates looks cool and shiny, but the old original purple one was better. It should be brought back.

Or maybe I'm just too nostalgic.

edit: wtf duz. way to necropost like a boss. :P
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

Could someone upload the old version? I'm not oldschool enough. I don't think I have ever seen it.

Yeap!


The mapping team welcomes remakes. So don't hesitate to try your hand at it. We just ask that you don't modify the layout, introduce polybugs, ...
Most default maps are not as visually attractive as they could be considering some of the very talented mappers we have in the community.

That's the problem. I'm not good enough to do stunning remakes.
Where's the mappers? Why the hell who has the knowledge can't help the game?
It's not time to the devs ask them "Hey, what you think about remake the visual and fix bugs of some default maps?"?
It's easier than modify the layout or create anything new. They wanna people playing in their maps... It's almost the same hahahahha

Do you even know how much time it takes to create a map from sketch to final product? I was motivated enough to start a big series of remakes (1, 2, 3, 4), but since no one from the mapping team considered texting me despite several tries of my own to get in contact, I dropped it.

I was not part of the mapping team at the time, but I remember that we were aiming for a visual upgrade, and that certainly happened, and without changing the gameplay. Although I prefer the theme of the old airpirates, it is an amazing remake, and I am against reverting it.

The map has a lot of .png scenery, and problem with png scenery is performance, maybe that's exactly why the map is not as popular as before, the map became "laggy".

About the remakes of akinaro and darkCrusade, we discussed them (including in the topic they were posted), and should be discussed in their own topics. Remember to worry about performance, and that a remake of a very popular map (like ash) is very hard to be accepted.

p.s: there is no necroposting here in the default mapping section, we won't create new topics often
