Ok, firsties, sorry I didn't post this yesterday after we were playing the map. My power supply decided to melt down and take the breaker to the entire room with it so I was offline until I could replace it.

Re: the map, AWESOME! First impression is that IT IS HUGE! Our first mission was 16,000M away and wasn't even the furthest most city away! Some cool stuff (like the carrier and destroyer) and some odd stuff (I fell through the Destroyer)

Here are some pictures that I took in game...

[edit- apparently I can't do the images AND the links so here are the links]

I know there is still work being done but some of the other things we noticed:
  • There is a TON of open space between the tree lines and the towns which makes for easy pickin's (both them and us). It's an all out sprint to get to cover and they're LONG sprints!

  • The town immediately East of the airfield may be too close to the Airbase. The base was pretty much instantly destroyed within minutes of the base being identified as the next town to be taken.

  • The side missions don't show up. There is a message when the first one is "issued" but no text nor "x marks the spot".

  • Although it is a Jungle map, there are probably too many trees. No where to sit down or clearings to base out of.

  • The last two pictures are just for reference. I think that camps are placed randomly but you can see that this camp was place partially in the water. oops! Also, it looks like the grass continues into the water and for quite a ways. This may be why vodnics are able to drive into the lakes to the point where only the top of thier turrets are visible!

  • Lastly, what is the time frame? I tried jumping from 0400 to 1100 and couldn't ever find darkness or when sunrise / sunset is...

I know the list is long and I apologize! Other than that, it was pretty fun! Keep up the hard work and I look forward to playing on updated versions!

Haha hey, dont be sorry! it was a quick throw together and I hoped for the best, anyways...
ill release a new version soon with the fixes, they are not major! and some parts are not bugs,
just I couldnt be bothered to put the right amount of figures etc at the time. For example:

Spazo:
Also, it looks like the grass continues into the water and for quite a ways. This may be why vodnics are able to drive into the lakes to the point where only the top of thier turrets are visible!

This is because I put "300" area value for where the enemy would spawn, Around Each City and as you know some
citys are next to the water etc, so this is what happens, lol...

This problem:

Spazo:
There is a TON of open space between the tree lines and the towns which makes for easy pickin's (both them and us). It's an all out sprint to get to cover and they're LONG sprints!

Is just because ive not finished the Island yet, your going to be very pleased with the next update! all citys have walls, fences,
more objects, clutter etc... :)

Just one thing also, I cant understand this:

Spazo:
The town immediately East of the airfield may be too close to the Airbase. The base was pretty much instantly destroyed within minutes of the base being identified as the next town to be taken.

They shouldnt attack the Airfield, cause its not a marked target! ... Boca Grande is the target, and they shouldnt attack the Airbase!
so im not sure whats causing this, ill have a look in to it though.

LoL had feeling there would be a problem with the side missions, dont worry about them, ill have them sorted soon too ;)

And this has been mentioned before also:

Spazo:
Although it is a Jungle map, there are probably too many trees. No where to sit down or clearings to base out of.

The forests where made as one big thing, and then im gradually going to work in and around them, you will see some of the work
ive already done with roads etc in the next update hehe.

last but not least, this:

Spazo:
Lastly, what is the time frame? I tried jumping from 0400 to 1100 and couldn't ever find darkness or when sunrise / sunset is...

Not quite sure if this is what you set in the options of the Domination, or something ive set wrong, just incase ill have a look too.

Really thanks for your bug reports, they all help me in ways to get a better mod etc for you guys to use! so thank you.

Keep posted for an update of the mission and the map very soon ;)

Added 1 hour 26 minutes later:

Just a quick update mate, the side missions are working fine, apart from ive not set the cords!
so when they sometimes spawn, they will spawn in the water and say "no side mission" lol...
also, the time of day etc seems to be working perfect for me, I played it for around 3 hours and
also tried various stuff, it just seems some very small things are causing issues, im fixing it now
and should have an update soon :)

Thanks again.

Hmm, apparently Big doesn't like my Red color... ;)

I figured you knew / were fixing most of the issues I mentioned but I thought I'd mention them anyway.

I assumed as much with the City areas & can't wait to see the cities with walls and cover!

I think they attack the airbase because it's close or something. I don't know. All I know is that within a minute or so (we were still getting out of the previous AO) our base structures (chopper repair, wreck repair, etc) were all down. We got back to base and there was a couple tanks and tons of infy there waiting for us!

Hmm, I'll keep playing with our settings to see what time night happens. I do know that last night when we jumped on the server, our players were spawning with their NV goggles on but it was plenty light out. Dunno if that's a setting that's automatically done between certain "hours of the day".

Also we were having some backpack and parachute issues last night. Items in backpack disappearing (or the option to put items into the backpack disappeared) and the option to open the parachute during a HALO jump (yeah, it's kinda important) disappeared. I know these might be Dom issues and not your map / settings but thought I'd throw it out there.

Can't wait for the next iteration!!!

Try Pink next time* LoL ... :-D

Anyways, sorry for the late reply, been a little busy... the problem with items dissapearing is a Domi2 bug! its like that
on some other maps too, im hoping for an update soon, so no worries, im working on updates as we speak!

More feedback is welcome on all the updates I do, so I can get it to a more decent state!

Thanks again Spazo

Why don't you use the search instead of bumping this thread?

Bumping a 5 year old topic with a "searching for a mission" post and unrelated question is not the right aproach, surely not when we have a sticky topic (which your day long searches never revealed) to use when searching for a specific mission.

Next time when you have a problem with our moderation you can aproach us as how it is described in the forum rules.
