I was thinking (gotta stop doing that). Wouldn't it be cool if there was a map tht alot of people got to wrk on. I mean a map where one person five things to it then sends it to another perso that does five things to it and so on. I figured that, around five people could work on it, because 5x5=25 hey I can do math yay!!! of course you could always do more per turn or more people. And one other thing could somebody put together a list of programs that are good for making a map.

ya, im game. count me in on it. sounds like a good idea. i dont want to "start" it tho since im already doing a bunch of other TM modding. dont want to take the time to come up w/ a name and theme and so on for the map.

NeoKi, if u want to (since it was your idea) either you start it or you make a listing of what "theme/ features" youre after and then ill start it off. however you want to do it.

main progs youll need:
1) TMapper; of course
2) Paint Program: Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro or something resembling.
3) 3D modeling prog and Lithiums Unwrapper for adding on the custom meshes.
4) text editor: for timkering with your ent files for the map.

nothing too special really, stuff that most TM players interested in modding probably already have.

if you want to move this topic into the modding area (or even to Dreamers BBS) and a listing of interested people can be made there and an order for who gets the map when to work on it.

Cool, Well i was thinking of a map thats like ramp except its desert and has other features, either that or a map that has potholes filled with bouncing laser. Like dark nova. Befor I can start Ineed to know where I can get some of these programs. I have TMmaper, I also so have the paint shop that come with my comp,(windows paint I think) but I would like a better paint program.

Neoki,

I think that GIMP paint program from www.gimp.org works very well. It's free. Give that a try. I've only played with it...I'm not a heavy/pro user
