oh my lord this is what i have been waiting on for like ever! now we need to make this a map in the tf2 brony servers and i am all set :)
I approve of the creator's taste in music. Art of the Dress ftw.
DID YOU JUST SHOOT DERPY? Still, that had to be the most adorable knife I've ever seen though.
Now that's hilarious.
A lot of open space, I noticed.Is that something usually favored in maps?
@ZarkanorfNot that much, no. I approve of the guy's efforts, but this needs a hell of a lot more work before I'd call it presentable.
*insert Twilight clap here*
This is super cool but I don't know how well the map itself would be in an actual match.I mean there's a shiton of open ground without cover and allot of paths that don't go anywhere.That said its still awesome!SOMEPONY CONVERT THIS FOR GMOD
My (admittedly limited) TF2 experience tells me that this wouldn't actually make much of a map as is, but what he's got done so far is certainly pretty cool.
Definitely needs a little more work done on it, but it looks cool :)
On one hoof, it's nice to have a tf2 map. I'm working on one myself. On the other hoof, it's kind of ugly and wouldn't be a good map for normal play.
this needs to be a Garrys mod map so that balanced spawn/cover ect don't matter and it can stay accurate to the town layout
They've got the design down, now let's see a version that's feasible as a TF2 map! Though maybe they can start my TF2-izing specific buildings. I can totally imagine Books and Branches turning into a vertical Control Points map.
Yeah, it's super-rough, probably not suitable for any sort of balanced gameplay, and isn't as pretty as the other project for this that I know of, but OHMIGOSH! Pony Map! I can't not be excited.
Awesome... Just... Pure awesome!
I will play this game one day....BY CELESTIA I WILL!Loving it, those textures are spot on!
Reasons to get TF2 increasing. It's not the fact that it's free now, but more the fact that I can play here O_O
This is still far from playable on any server. (Open spaces, unclear paths) But kudos for the effort.
WHY WUB WOO
Hm...They need to increase the amount of buildings and such, as well as add more paths.TF2 is NOT a good game to have open ground on."Say goodbye t' ya head wanka!"
Also...TF2 bronies!WE MUST POOSH LITTLE CART!
Was playing around on this map, and found something. Go crouch and hit the black area on the chicken coop with your melee weapon.
@Zarkanorf Uh...no. Speaking as a veteran TF2 player, I'd say this map is very poorly designed in layout for actually PLAYING the game. Don't get me wrong, ponyville tf2 = 20% cooler. But uh, as a level designer, I'm visibily cringing as I look at the layout of this place. It'd be much too hard to play; snipers would just LOVE this map, go to the edge of the map or up on clouds and headshot people left and right. You'd have a good 10-15 seconds of running through open ground to actually GET to the sniper to shoot him. You never EVER want teleporter pads in tf2, especially not ones at are not painfully CLEAR at first glance it is a teleporter. Having the respawn areas open so you could just stand in that doorway blowing people up as they respawn is just begging trolls to be assholes. There is so little proper cover that you might as well just play scout because anyone else is gonna be too slow to survive long. And from the looks of the buildings they are dead ends; no windows or ways out. That's a big no no for a game that requires a lot of movement and gaining and taking ground; walking into twilight's library would be a deathtrap.Cool idea. Just...not that well executed in practice.
@Torrential RainsWould be hilarious to have a TF2 map where we have to deliver a bomb to Canterlot. Alternatively, the kart becomes Princess Celestia's chariot... with her on it. :p
Awesome. I'm not a huge fan of TF but i would download it only to kill people in ponyville
Being fairly experienced in the art of TF2 I'd have to agree with everyone saying it's not good for a regular match, but it would work very well in medieval mode (minus The Huntsman and Crusaders Crossbow) and would work even better as an idle server map where everyone just runs around doing anything (exept killing of course, but there are plugins for optional punishment for killing)
In a standard match it would be a nightmare, but otherwise impressive.
Looks like it'd make a decent "screwing around" map like Mario_Kart and various others, and possibly serve as a starting point for making some, erm.... actual maps.I also can't help thinking that some bits of that could have been done better. Rainbow's digs in particular seemed kinda... blocky.
Fun stuff there. Looks pretty good. Also ahhh! He shot me! D:
0:08Note the knife. xD
@GrifHOW DID YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT?!Are you a SPY?
We totally aren't going to blow up Celestia and make Luna sole ruler of Equestria...You. Heard. Nothing.
NOOOOO HE KILLED DERPY
@Gozer the EquestrianI did dat generichappyimage.jpgalso check this out if you are interest in pony mods: http://ubergaming.net/forums/index.php?/topic/309-tf2-skins-general/(i wonder if that has been posted here already)
That's just... too good to be true.
@Torrential RainsI AM GOING TO KILL YOU! AND KILL YOU! AND KILL YOU!
@NotAGoodUsername360And if ya order now, I'll throw in a second beatin', absolutely free!
HOLY SHIT! Do the FiM TF2 servers know about this? This map needs to be standard on those servers.
As a sniper I approve of this map =D.Good job though it looks pretty accurate.
Loved the Flutterzepplin.Now I wish I had a stab-activated jukebox too...
Awesome, but it seems like everything is to small.
As a Scout main this looks fun as hell. But it's waaaayyyyy too open for any other class not named Sniper to be functional (god help any Pyro's). It looks neat I guess though.
@Torrential RainsMay I borrow your earpiece? "This is scout, rainbows make me cry!
This needs serious work...
What did we agree on for the pony classes? Rainbow Dash as the Scout and Applejack as the Engineer are obvious and pretty much confirmed, Twilight as the Sniper and Rarity as the Spy fit okay, but the other classes (and ponies)?Fluttershy: Could be either Heavy or Medic. Heavy because he's usually a nice guy, but has VIOLENT fits of rage (Fluttershy during the Gala), and Medic because Fluttershy seems to be the town veterinarian and would probably love filling a healing role, but is completely the opposite of the Medic's incredibly sadistic personality.Pinkie Pie: Pyro or Heavy. Pyro because he/she/it, from what little we know, is insane. Heavy for same reasons as Fluttershy. Having a cupcake instead of a Sandvich would be a hilarious mod.
I'd play this map, but it just looks so baaaad...Maybe if it were a dm_mariokart or somethin'...
I do not see how it is possible to play on this map.But the town and ponies are nice. Map will be good for parties!
Far too much open space, Snipers would dominate the map. Hopefully the map creator can fully flesh it out eventually so it's more of an actual town instead of what appears to be a small settlement.
Ya'llz so silly, both TF2 and gmod use BSP files for their map. You just have to ent_fire a spawnpoint in there!
@AnonymousI think whats generally accepted is;Rainbow Dash: ScoutApplejack: EngineerTwilight Sparkle: SniperRarity: SpyPinkie Pie: PyroFluttershy: HeavyDerpy: SoldierDemoman: Zecoraaaand not sure about medic?
@AnonymousHave Big Macintosh as the Heavy and Fluttershy as the Medic? I don't know.Also, Derpy as the Soldier? Why didn't I think of that! That's awesome!
Ponyville should have that billboard!(HuffytheMagicDragon)
To be honest, koth_ponyville on ponychan collab looks alot better, with amazing modeling, and alot of consideration on how to make it playable, and balanced. http://www.ponychan.net/chan/collab/res/8123.htmlI'm afraid, although it's a nice effort, this is just a sniper map.
I don't think Ponyville would make a nice TF2 map. Everything is too far apart in the show, so if you try to replicate it, it won't be balanced. But if you do edit it to make it balanced, it won't look like Ponyville. This particular one looks to...round and it looks more like a suburb on the edge of the Mojave Desert than a quasi-medieval town (though I realize that's the TF2 look).I think this will end up being the best video game recreation of Ponyville:http://aurebesh.deviantart.com/gallery/31093498I'd want to see that one recreated for Killing Floor. Just set it at misty night, put some places where the merchant can set up, some monster spawn points, and some explorable houses with doors you can weld shut, and you're good to go!
If I had to pick TF2 counterparts for the ponies, I couldn't make a better selection than this.http://don-komandorr.deviantart.com/art/Equestria-Fortress-210004610Fluttershy would not be a heavy! She would be a medic because of the medic's doves.
I'm going to get this game for the sole purpose of using this map.
