Hi all. This map has only "player start" thing without team buildings, so you may test it only in doom builder.
Some gameplay features, which I want to implement:
1. Strategical points, which you can capture, and get bonus armor and damage for your team (on screenshot).
2. Security wall, which separets the base from middle of map, and which opens at sudden death.
Can you give me some advices about scripting that things? It will be good to know, how get team-flag of current player, how to change damage and armor for current team and any type of armor.

1. I have experimented with teleports that you can "capture" and then use from your base. The design is not perfect so I haven't implemented them in any real map yet. But I agree it is a good idea to be able to control gameplay throughout the map. And also to provide experience with events in the map.

2. I have checked the script files included in the .pk3 to locate events/variable names. You should be able to find sudden death there.

Will check your map later.

Interesting layout and very special design. Very much Q2 :) Now I need to learn how to make 3d floors.

Where are you going to place the buildings ?

Maybe you have found out about it by now but this script triggers an event on Sudden Death:

Code:
#include "zcommon.acs"
#import "aow2scrp.acs"
#import "a_functions.acs"

Script 7 OPEN
{
   
    if (SuddenDeath)
    {
        Floor_LowerToLowest(30,8);
        terminate;
    }

    delay(35);
    restart;
}

Here is a completed version of map.
I added some new gameplay features:
I placed force fields instead of doors. Force fields block enemy players and projectiles. Each team has its type of fields - red and blue. Blue players can go thorough blue field and can't go through red fields and vice versa.
There 4 control points on a map: red A, red B and blue A, blue B. Players can capture enemy points just by standing near it.

Red A is related to red War Factory and Refinery
Red B is related to red Research center and Bar
Blue A is related to blue War Factory and Refinery
Blue B is related to blue Research center and Bar

For example: when blue player captures red point A, red war factory and red refinery force fields are changed to blue. So, if red players want to use/repair/enter their wf and ref they have to retrieve their point back. And blue players can easily go throught captured force fileds.

Good map, but it is very large and it needs map markers(for A and B points).
WTF
(OMG sorry for image, I don't know what happened)

1022x575 happened? How did you even manage that. o-O

But yeah, screenshots bug out if either of the resolutions isn't a multiple of 8. (1022/8 = 127.75, 575/8 = 71.875)
1024x576 Would probably work just fine, though I have no idea how you'd get a messed up combination like that. (The only combination I recall that is 1366x768)

What the fuck, I have 1366x768. I changed 1366x768 in zandronum too. Very strange bug.

Well if you want to take screenshots, then use 1360x768 or something.

But yeah, there's a huge 3D floor vertical segment that's just one big HOM.

Tonight we played this map on a full server. Here is the feedback I saw:

* People don't understand the point system, at least not intuitively. Points need to renamed to more properly mirror their usage.
* Tiberium lava needs to be redesigned. Many players started with going to -10 frags. Frustrating :)
* People got irritated by Force fields blocking building doors. This points back to not understanding why force fields went from blue to red. I definitely think they are a good idea but think they should be used for opening up goodies or paths between bases instead of blocking buildings.

My thought is that points should be placed nearer their usage or places that are more natural to reach from the respective base. They are kinda randomly placed now, especially point B.

Force fields could also all open at SD.

Upper levels are kinda off to reach, not many found their way to them.

With all that said I think it was refreshing to play something different so address these issues and we're going somewhere :)
