Anyone want to help me with a Marathon Mod?

I've been working on a Marathon mod for about a year now, but it is a daunting task. I've got many aspects of the game covered but there are some I need help with. I need people willing to make Terminal Art, Chapter Screens and Assorted graphics. If you happen to be good at Marathon Map making I would consider using some of your maps in the final product.

I'd love to help, even though I'm still a relative n00b at mapping, but I can help with textures, testing, and assorted others.

You map? Have you made anything for TO?

Good, send me an example of your mapping and I'll let you know. Textures will be very useful, I'm making some but it is a big project. This is going to be one of the really big mods that you hear about or get on MacAddict discs.

I also need beta testers, if you want to do that let me know and I'll add you to the list.

Sadly the map editor for the Unreal engine is PC only. There never was or will be a port.

UnrealEd can only run on a Mac with VPC, and my iMac just can't handle it, otherwise I'd try mapping for TO too.

My "maps" are not that good.

ATM I am experimenting with Forge; it has been almost 6 years since I made a decent map. I'll try mapping something this week and I'll send you the results.

I can make textures; just tell me what file format you need and I'll start working on it.

I'm definately up for beta testing as well. I have several different Macs, so I can test it under different conditions. Will it be Mac OS X only?

Gotcha, I might go to the Bungie.org community to look for mapmakers.

I need textures in .jpg format and size 256x256. Before you really start, send me a few very different examples of your work, I may want you to concentrate on one style for a later part of the game. PM me for details, If I told you what they are for here I might give away parts of the game.

http://source.bungie.org you need the original data files for MI, or you can convert the M2 data files to MI format.

asurace : I'm still having problems with my forums, so for right now I'm going to post what I have so far in this thread.

Ok here goes :

I tried to make the attached textures look as similar as the colors you provided in the screenshots. I'm not sure if they are what you had in mind, but enjoy.

I'm not sure if this is what you were looking for. I'll try to create some more detailed textures later in the week. Right now I'm just flat out exhausted from last week (working, driver's ed, lifting weights.)

I'll talk to you guys on Wednesday.

Those are exactly what I'm looking for, I'll compile a test map to show them off as well as some of the more interesting aspects of scenario. I'll post a screenshot shortly.

Wow, that simple sand/wall texture turned out pretty good.

I'll be working on some more textures this week, but I probably won't be able to post them until Wednesday.

Sky textures are one of those details that I'm not sure about. We'll find out later in development.
