Xtreme-Jumps Maps

Hello,

how about some new maps?

Just a reminder to mappers first:

We will need a recording of someone jumping the entire map!
Please write down what you feel is an appropriate skill level description for the map!

kz_ins_2ndbhop by Country: Germany hm^
Challenge: Average (according to mapper)
Type: Bhop

              Description:
Let's face it- mpbhops is a terrific plugin and makes life a lot easier for multiple players to co-exist on a public server. But as far as its hindrances go, it definitely has restricted some serious mapper innovation over the years when considering this as a factor toward a map's potential for creativity. That was all thrown out the window here, and the concept of moving blocks to aide map progression finally has a place back in the ranks. Enjoy this slightly-difficult, yet totally-fun adaptation which calls to mind inspiration from other technique maps such as kz_radium and many more.


kz_kzro_mountaineiz by Country: Romania Spider1 Mapper CS 1.6 Recordholder KZmod Recordholder
Challenge: Easy
Type: Climb

              Description:
A huge open-world map from Spider1 isn't just unsurprising at this point, its almost completely expected. Two main sections to this map, with the 2nd area being the larger- this map noticeabley has a ton in common with hb_fyksen. A long but fun climb, mostly cliff-style, with a few key risk point's throughout. Best to learn the map with a check-run first.. unless you're feeling daring.


kzro_bhopymag by Country: Romania Spider1 Mapper CS 1.6 Recordholder KZmod Recordholder
Challenge: Easy / Average
Type: Climb / Bhop
Screenshots:

              Description:
We don't always see Bhop maps from Spider1, but when we do, its an exciting day! A bit on the challenging side here, but still loads of fun nonetheless. Rope ladders, duck-unders, strafe-arounds, you name it. Spider1 kept it interesting, that's for sure- and the environment is rather enjoyable as well. The world appears to be based in some sort of lava-ravine, and you'd imagine escape upwards to the surface would be in your best interest. The nice lighting, colors and textures are enough to keep the jumper engrossed the whole way.


qcg_egyptblock by Country: Slovakia Qicg Mapper
Challenge: Average / Hard (according to mapper)
Type: Slide / Climb / Bhop
Screenshots:

              Description:
Nothing too exciting in the texture department here. Unfortunately these are some of the more recycled textures in the world of kreedz-based maps, and the lighting is also nothing to write home about. But at least the map brings to the table a sense of individuality when it comes to the jumps within. A touch past the advanced skill level should be required to complete the map- even with checks. Mostly safe, block-like sections, but again another map with high risk points in transitional and connecting areas. Medium in length, it should present a nice challenge for some of our better demo recorders.


qcg_natureclimb by Country: Slovakia Qicg Mapper
Challenge: Average (according to mapper)
Type: Climb / Bhop
Screenshots:

              Description:
This mapper seems to be evolving in such a short time. Already we are seeing better textures and lighting as well as jump concepts. The jumps are approximately the same difficulty as his last map, but certainly more entertaining and addicting. This is what the XJ Map Team likes to see from a mapper; progression and improvement. Not an extremely long map, but one which will certainly take a few attempts to learn all of the techniques.


Finally, some packs to download if you want everything:

Enjoy!

    Have to say that bhopymag has texture bugs on bhop blocks (when they are in low position) and bhops are kinda unbalanced, from ease-average to average-hard.

  • We are not picky with bugs or texture alignment anymore. Unless it is a really serious bug ofcourse. The visual stuff is up to the mapper to get right.

  • yeah, I've read latest news, so this is written mostly for the mapper, since Sp1der1's climb map is awesome, so there is a chance he'll listen to these opinion.

    However, this new politics seems like another extremity, this bug is not critical but could be seen on any blocks placed on high levels, and could be fixed in a few minutes. Well, it's just my opinion, don't take it as a critique of anybody.

  • Yes thank you for pointing it out. I actually completly missed the overlapping textures and as u said is really simple to fix(either make same texture on blocks or Lip -1 ) so i would have loved to fix it :D

    The first part is easier cuz when i got to second part up i thought the map was too simple and i tried way too much with turns and 1 or 2 blocks that absolutly need sbj...I over compensate in second part what seemd too easy in first :D

    However one of my tester said is cool as it seems its not too radical and is like a laddder difficulty, hope it wont bother too much people :P

    My next bhop map will be all only easy i promise :-}
