I'm currently working on a project to greatly improve the Online features of Meteor. In this project, I plan to make:

-A truckload of new H2H maps (And Coop maps if we get to it)
-A modified and balanced arsanel of (most of) Meteor's weapons
-New graphics and sprites
-Badass music tracks
-Awesome action-packed new or improved soundfx
-New tileset consisting of modified regular tiles and some new ones.

We need help! If you'd like to help bring this project to life, tell us what you can do, and what you'd like to do, and you're in. However you need to at least be an Acknowledged member (Because you may be required to attach files)

I like the idea a lot but I have been busy these days and I don't think I will have enough time to join in.

I'm actually looking for modified soundfx really. Do you have Audio editing software? I kinda want to reuse the soundfx that are already in meteor, just make gunshots louder. (You could mix sounds together for cool results too)

If you have music in .mod or .xm that would be awesome.

If you can make some good tiles that would be good. We want to encourage the M1 'look' so the best would be modified or recolored tiles from Main.til, or you can make some orginal one on your own that fit snugly with the M1 tileset.

Currently, the tileset consists of mostly fixing the unfinished parts of Main.til. For example, the "Steel to Grass" corner, there is a tile for all corners. There are now railroad tracks that go up and down vertically, instead of only horizontal. and a bunch of others.

Try Audacity or so, it's a free but really good sound effect editor.

You can edit the module files using Modplug Tracker: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=100385

And yeah Audacity is a great "raster" sound editor.

It's a shame the IRC channel is down right now. I made excellent progress on the tileset. (It's a lot easier to edit this tileset than mankind's)

I'm hoping to use default Meteor soundfx, and enhance them to sound cooler. Could someone edit the Scream soundfx and make them sound a little deeper without affecting the length of the sound too much?

Yeah it's too bad, how am I going to get the tileset now? =P

I think we should collect ideas for maps and put them as one big list on the first post of the topic and once we get the tileset finished we'd do them and update the list as the maps get done.

Well one thing I want to make sure is that all maps 'look' like M1. Which should be pretty easy for everyone except for me due to Mankind being in progress.

So I want a lot of Gray stone, Red Brick, Brown Brick, and Techy things.

For making maps, It's common for me that I draw the map first on paper. (At least this is what I did for mapping in Doom, Meteor isn't too different) It's best to start with basic shapes, and then build rooms off of it. Like for example, when you start your map, pick a good floor tile, and make a giant Cross or a Square or something, then build rooms off it from there. Especially for HH maps, make sure there are few doors, lots of teleports, and wide open hallways (in case anyone has a rocket launcher or fusion cannon!)

Also I am going to have to include a lot more people in the credits, because I copied and pasted a lot of tiles from people's mods and maps.

Namely:
Leo Lam
Dave Man
d34db34t
DarkRain
Petix

I also slipped in a couple tiles from my old tileset that I used for Meteor WW3, and I also borrowed some tiles from Civil War, and Nuclear Facility.

Papercut, could you sign me in? I can make HH maps. As I said on first of August I am going to stay with my grandmother but I will give my best to make at least one HH map.

As I understand it you, Papercut, will attach the mixed tileset so we can make maps.

I could probably put together a map or two.

Also, another good sound editing program is Wavepad. It's at www.nch.com.au.

Here's your deeper scream sounds, Papercut. (The one called 'scream.wav' was pretty deep already so I left it alone.)

Here, use this tileset--it's the same as the one Naval War's already uploaded, but with more tiles.

Ugh I hate Scream3.wav and Scream5.wav. Overall they're terrible sounds and even Canuck's modified sounds can't save it. I may have to replace those sounds with something new. However, the rest of Canuck's scream sounds are getting used. I like the DOOROPEN sound too so I'm using that.

And when you guys make tiles, I'd prefer that you draw the images with MS Paint instead of making new tilesets, or at least make your tiles in meteor and export them as PCXs. We plan to combine all tiles into a single tileset, and a lot of progress had already been made. However, I did check the two tilesets and theyre great! All tiles from the tilesets are getting used.

Naval war, you're map will not show up properly with the new tileset because it uses your own, Edit your map and replace the tiles from your tileset with tiles from the original Main.til to avoid your map getting all messed up with the new tileset. When the tileset is finished and released to the public, then you can replace the default tileset with the tiles we copied out of your tileset using the finished tileset. After that, attach your map again and it will be used in the Multiplayer pack =)

Umm, yeah it's a little confusing I know.

When the Meteor Multiplayer Pack is finished, we want all the maps in it to use a single tileset. So the work with it being done is that we are copying tiles from other tilesets and putting it in this one.

Your map uses the tileset you made, which is fine, though when you replace your tileset with the one we made, the map will look really ugly because it's a different tileset. The tiles from your tileset have been copied and pasted into the new tileset, though will not show up in your map when it's used because both tilesets are not exactly the same.

To keep your map from getting all messed up, what you should do is replace every tile in your map with a tile that came with meteor (For example, the barrels you said, replace with meteor's crates) Then when we send you the finished tileset, you can replace those crates with the barrels that were there originally. This is so your map doesn't get messed up before we put it in the Multiplayer pack.

Great map, Naval War! I have attached the Dark Conspiracy tileset but with some brand new tiles. You can use it, Papercut. Also I may start mapping when the whole tileset is ready because it will be a mess if I start now.

I just made a H2H map with the regular Meteor stuff. I assume it will work with the mod too.

EDIT: I just made a new version, with more ammo and rats =)

Are we going to make an M2 version after this?

P.S. I seem to be the only person not contributing.
Also known as Veyrdite
My website: http://halestrom.net/darksleep@Occasionally you may meet me when you sleep. In the darkest corners of your dreams, where your phone stops working and you don't know what to do. I'll be there; telling you that I don't support your device.

"Can't you just fix-"
NO! I told you when you bought this, when it goes wrong I can't fix it. It's filled with glue. The Greek goddess of glue Araldities herself would be impressed with this.

Please stop asking me for technical support during your dreams. Can't we just tour some surreal landscapes instead?

"How do I do that?"

Count your fingers. Keep trying. Make sure there's ten.

Then summon me. I am large and covered in wires. Clouds of baking soda pour into your world and a slightly weak yellowy glow appears from the LED strips behind me.

If you can see this message then you're already part of the way there. Keep all your styles disabled and you might see the dream within.

"But there's so much javascript everywhere! I can't see you. Help! I've forgotten to count my fingers! Where do I find them?"

The LED strip behind me pops and goes out. Dark spots appear in the centre of each light. I lift my finger to my lips. The smell of tantalum capacitors fills the air.

Ssh. Don't worry about that. Behind those frameworks there's another person sleeping.

Some day the javascript will sleep too.
