    FUTURAMA PLANET EXPRESS (DEPOT)
    [​IMG]
    Hello all, welcome to my latest map. I haven't posted a map in a whille now, I have been working on a few and a couple of remakes and revisions of my older maps. They will be out real soon.

    I was messing around a while ago making a Futurama map, this initially had a Bender statue next to the building but in the preview it wasn't liked and it was a little out of place so I decided to concentrate on the structure and making this into a playable map.
    This is now working on most gametypes and has a reasonable lay out. I had to make a few adjustments to the original structures to make the map play, as the building hasn't many door ways and is not large enough for a complex lay out.
    I have tried to make each room seem simmilar in structure inside including the main hanger, round table, sitting room and the observatory, all are accessable without having to use teleporters. Although some have been added to improve flow. As this is aprox a full budget map (400 left) and there are many aesthetics I have decided the aesthetic catagory suits this map best.

    3 X HEALTH
    1 X CAMO - 90'S
    1 X ROCKET - UNDER SOFA 180'S not placed at start
    The weapon choice besides from the rockets are all covanant keeping in 'future'ama theme.

    2 x Ghost (team only)

    This map looks awesome, Timmy. Very accurate, even on the inside. The curved observatorium is especially impressive.

    No angry dome, though? ;)

    lol Thanks! which dome did you mean?
    I am fairly happy with end result, It is unusual for me to leave budget left over, expecially on an aesthetic map, but that has been left to keep it playable. The curve incline was fun to forge and I couldn't think of a better way to get the shape.The top was a little more difficult keeping playable and accessable... there are some windows missing from tower that I ran out of pieces, the suggestion of the windows works and it seems to look better this way. Thanks for comments :)

    I'm definitely downloading this, looks very identical to the building in Futurama! I wish I had the idea for this!

    Thanks TomisHigh! Appreciate your help with this forge, I found another way to make spiral stairs...using curved inclines, was lucky they fit. Thanks

    Thank you, from an evening taking a break from remakes I came up with this after an episode of futurama,i thought the structure looked interesting to forge. A few weeks later after re forging and getting all to flow it is complete. Me and my brother had loads of great matches on this, ffa is definitly my favourite on this! Also jet pack was fun helping improve flow and ways around. Thanks for your comment and download :)

    Good work Tim. Unexpected, but good. Always enjoyed the show, and this recreation in forge brings out every bit of the chaotic company's HQ.
    I enjoyed the minor details such as the railings, the death beam, and the roof connections, not to mention everything else. It was nice to explore.

    Thank you! Appreciate your feedback and glad you took a look around. I needed a break from remaking, so much measuring and hard work, was loosing the enjoyment I can get from forging and getting creative.
    I had to make a few adjustments to make playable, and a few areas are not as well structured as I'd like, but I am happy with the look of this and it was fun to forge. I enjoyed researching the building, I found some great pictures and even a walk through of a futurama game to get the structures to look right and the rooms, furniture and aesthetics. externally I think this turned out well and is an interesting structure. Also getting all areas to be accessible was challenging, I had some help from friends and comments on preview to help get this done. Thanks :)

    I love this show, own every dvd, have every movie, LOVE THIS. My only complaint is the lack of Smell-o-scope. Lol

    Aww, no Bender stepping on pyramids? Hopes=dashed ;P

    But really, looks great. I love that you made the aesthetics on the inside work too with minimal transportation. TV room love! <3

    Thank you appreciate the feedback and glad you checked it out, glad you liked the tv room, tried to make the sofas a little different, they look more like car seats or gaming chairs lol....did you spot the rocket stashed under the sofa? It doesn't spawn till 3 min...
    I always research before making and on this map I spoted a few other maps in this theme, on the one I found there were no clear ways around and some areas only accessable through telepoter, which was annoying, and something I didn't want on this map. Thanks for the feedback!

    Damn nice one... love the seats and the whole aesthetic side of it, it's very different from most aesthetic maps because of its roundness, which you managed to make very accurately. Nice job, I could see this used in machinimas.

    Thank you! Had a great response to this map and post. I liked the chair, I could have made it more like original sofa but it didnt look good, not seen any like this, looks more like a car seat or gaming sofa. The round map was fun to forge, using round objects and shape I got this to be as round as possible. I am pleased with how round the platform at top looks considering its mainly made out of straight and square objects.
    Not had any of my work used as machinima to my knowledge but some things have been on YouTube! Thanks

    I just played around on this and it looks amazing! How you got the spiral ramps to line up so well is just a terrific feat. I can never get those stupidly designed ramps to do what i want. The tower is art and it's functional. The windows are lined up very well and I didn't see any z fighting which is amazing considering all of the overlapping you did. This has my vote as a feature.

    I've said this before but, I must say again, I really like your style Timmy.

    This looks great frm what I can see. The aesthetics are looking terrific. You allways have a warped pattern like forging style and I like that. And everything looks really proportionate based on observing. Great job

    Appoligies for the delay, have been away. Appreciate your feedback and support with my forge projects. I did enjoy this map and was a nice break from the usual maps forged. Nice interesting stuctures all accessable, and playable. I did check all z fighting was fixed, the floor was moving lots which was annoying but I think all was ok. Thanks for your feedback

    I'm going to go ahead and say Futurama is a really lame show, IMO. Nonetheless, this looks really accurate and very aesthetically pleasing.

    I, at one point, had the same idea as you with the glass windows curving around the dish for one of my maps in the far past.

    Anyways, keep up the great work, Timmy.

    We all have different opinions, I like animations, although I dont watch them as much as usual, I guess its far from reality.
    I enjoyed forging this, I think I know what map you mean. the roundness of the dish and other round objects helped to give this map its curves using as guidelines. Appreciate your feedback. Would be good to catch up on xbox soon. Thanks :)
