[MAP] Hallways: Spanner pack (v0.2)
« on: October 25, 2011, 10:39:59 AM »
Something a wee bit different - hallways!

Extract all to AVWW\RuntimeData\Logic\RoomMaps\Hallway\Doors5.

I like the idea, unfortunately, as I understand it, these won't *quite* work. I think the spawning logic will prohibit a door from spawning in the middle portion of these maps, which is ok, except that there isn't enough room on the ends for 5 doors. In order to make this work, you'd need to make at least one of the ends at least one square longer to ensure that two doors can spawn.

Or making it so that doors can spawn in the center would also do it, too.  Technically these actually could work, but you'd wind up with tons of vents in the center area most of the time.

I thought I'd left enough room at either end including the raised area, actually.

It'd be trivial to extend the side bits, if I know by how much...?

Hmm, actually, it's not as bad as I was thinking, looking at it again.  Technically you could fit 6 doors there, so if these are doors5 that should be okay.  And if the seeding is particularly lucky, it can fit even more than 6, so that's extra good.  If it's particularly un-lucky seeding it can max out at 4 -- which is what Josh and I were reacting to -- but then having a vent is no big deal.

Nah, don't bother. I see what Chris is saying. As they are, there would be, at worst, one required vent. Which is fine. These are good.
