BnS CTF league season 5


9 teams have registered in BnS league season 5 so far and there is still time to register your own team. We have a few new league admins Silnius, TheKing, and Cuuli. We will possibly add a few more to the roster. We have also been privately testing an IRC bot that can dynamically create league servers using hosting.buildandshoot.com. This will add more geographical locations for matches and it can allow us to add a lot more variety to the league in the future.

Kuma's heightmap2colormap
Image

This is a tool that we should really have talked about earlier, it was released Sun Oct 27, 2013. Kuma's converter allows you to easily convert a heightmap to a colormap using a gradient. This is really good if you are making a heightmap from scratch using an image editor if you are using JoJoe's tool but don't like the colormap. The reason we are talking about it now is that with the next update users will be able to set noise for the colormap. You can see a preview of what a colormap with the new update will look like above. Jdrew made a tutorial for the latest version if you are having trouble with the tool. Kuma also talked a little bit about the new update:
Kuma wrote:
A new version will be coming soon with the bug fixes, I will be adding noise similar to JoJoe's tool (note: jojoe's tool uses a pre-generated voronoi texture and it overlays it on the colormap, that is why most maps look very similar, mine will generate a texture each time) Both voronoi and perlin noise will be featured (hopefully).

Maps
Battlecity
by Bbig Boss

Battlecity is an incredible first map! Its design reminds me a lot of the BF3 maps. Action is forced towards the middle of the map while still leaving the side routes open. This seperates the good players from the not so good players. The builds also look very nice though they are rather empty and small. The map looks really good too with all the lamp posts adding to the atmosphere. It really is a great map for MCTF and in general. Hopefully we see other maps as good as this, nice job!

Looking forward to having the match with any of the 3 remaining players in the tournament. They are all good players and it will certainly be a challenge.
