To all mappers
To start I would like to say thank you to all of you and congratulations for your creations. Because of you, Call of Duty remains a very interesting game.
I have a web site offering custom maps for CoD & United Offensive your maps,( soon for CoD2 ), and since the time that I offer these maps, I noticed small things which I would like to speak to you about.
This is the Nazi Flag ( SS ), and the Swastikas is forbidden in Germany. Activision and many others make special version for our german friends, without Swastikas. They are a lot of players too. So if you want your maps played all over the world, please think about putting something else to replace that sign and/or flag. Look at RaveKniven's Bismarck GE version. It will gives you some idea of replacement.
Name of maps
Many maps have the same name or almost the same name. There's a hint: when you and your clan or friends make tests on the map before it official release, make a contest between you to find the better name for that map (just an idea).
Who are you?
The last thing... one of the most important: fill up a "README.TXT"
and add it to your PK3! Many, many maps don't have it and if there's no informations on the loading screen" we simply don't know who made the map! Not just that. Players, server admins ( and me lolll ) want to know who made the map, is it for CoD? UO? What game type? DM, TDM, etc...
Is there a story behind this map? We need infos about all of this. Moreover there's a nice and complete "README.TXT GENERATOR"
here on ModsOnline, free! So, Let us know who you are!
NO README = NO CREDITS to the author... think about it.
Finally, thank you all for your hard work. All those long hours behind your computer, every research you've done, for all the times that your girl friends and/or wife were shocked after you about these long hours spent to conceive these maps, from all the CoD community ( and me ;) )THANK YOU
(Is it possible to pin this?? ok just asking
