MXT Cydonia CTF Map will be released this weekend.
There are small changes, but It should be good enough to increase the movility of the players and stop a little the camping.
There have been some changes in the MXT CTF Server.
We moved to a new hosting service; more expensive, but more reliable and much less laggy.
[eAu]Nikki has been helping not only getting It online, but paying most of the cost. Still all donations you can make are more than welcome, and we will Include your name in the server welcome screen, in the donations section.
If you want to help keep It running, you can donate to the paypal acount: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have more questions or need extra info, msg to me 🙂
I wanted to make a trining-like map for FEAR Combat, and what could better than Call of Duty 4: Kill House?
This map was already made by [TxT]RusTus, a beautifull copy of the original, but while It was awesome in visuals, It lags like hell in low power computers, even If they set graphics to low. So I ended up doing my own version.
this works fine even in lower settings, but the huge action may be laggy for extremely low power PC’s. Anyway, i think It’s far superior in performance, but not as accurate as the first RusTus version. It supports all gamemodes, including Control and SlowMo variants.Continue reading
We will run a Temp CTF Server for 5 days. It should run better (that’s what Gameservers.com said). If It does, we will stay there. If not, we will go back to the old IP. Meanwhile, the old Server will run in Control Gamemode.
UPDATE: The server is back to normal. We will continue running in the same IP’s, since we didn’t detect any improvement in the new location. Furthermore some issues were detected with the server listing.
We will continue with this IP while we find a better hosting option.
In the last Holidays week I managed to make and release a set of 4 maps. Based in a recurrent theme in some anime series:
The Final defense weapon for the planet. A giant robot. The Tanegashima Space center has been used in some anime series like “Robotics; Notes” and “Captain Earth”.
In the MXT Tanegashima Complex Map Set is based in an underground Facility that contains a Gundam Sized robot. Each Map is located in a different level, from 0 (in the surface) to -3 (in the bottom).
Here are some screenshots. After an initial release with some bugs, a final release was published today.
So here are the top 25 =MXT=CTF Server players.
This is based in the CDKey Usage, not in the player name. So you can change It and you still get score.
To change the display name, you need to edit your profile info at http://fear-community.org
This is the updated version of this classic MXT Map. Has the exact same layout, but with renewed visuals. Hopefully It looks FEAR-like enough.
The map is available for playing at =MXT= CTF Server, and will be made available for download from known sources in short.
MXT CTF Server failed to start. For some reason It fails 80% of the time, without custom content. With custom content fails 100%. This is a still unknown bug that is under research, but so far has no known fix. It affects only Linux Versions of the game.
We (Phreeze and me) have tried our best to make It work as usual, but that hasn’t worked. So I had to switch to Stock TDM Server, and with some luck It’s working. for a CTF Server you can check the =MXT=CTF Euro server, that has the same server config, maps and mods.
This is a temporal solution to the problems, but I’m afraid this situation could be permanent, and the CTF Server will have to move to a new IP. No matter what happen next, we will move the CTF Server back to USA. We already plan to run a TDM Server, in Europe.
We will keep you all updated about the status of the server.
El MXT CTF Server no arranca. Por alguna razón falla 80% de las veces, sin contenido personalizado. Con contenido personalizado falla el 100%. Se trata de un error aún desconocido, que está siendo investigado, pero hasta ahora no hay una solución. Afecta solamente a la versión Linux del server.
Nosotros(Phreeze y yo) hemos estado tratando de hacerlo funcionar como siempre, pero no ha funcionado. Así que tuve que cambiarlo a TDM con mapas default, y con algo de suerte está funcionando. Por un servidor CTF puedes checar el =MXT=CTF Euro , que tiene la misma configuración, mapas y mods.
Esta es una solución temporal a los problemas, pero me temo que la situación podría ser permanente, y el Servidor CTF tendría que moverse a una nueva IP. No importa lo que pase después, el Servidor CTF regresará a USA. Ya tenemos también planes para correr un servidor TDM, en Europa.
Los mantendremos informados del estado del servidor.
The Splash Screen of the previously announced tier 4 (First of this type) FEAR MXT Map was leaked some mins ago. Our sources confirmed this map has a new detail level, much deeper than previous maps, and includes a huge list of optimizations.
More info will be made available once It’s released to the public, later today.
After the Final Optimization:
Number of input polies: 31219
Number of input vertices: 39124
Number of output polies: 26498
Number of output vertices: 20139
Tree depth: 86
Number of objects: 514
