Christmas Mapping Contest 2013

October 27, 2013, 09:08:55 PM by [FRAG]B
Santa is on the way and he's expecting to see a nice map dedicated to christmas in our server again. The contest for this map is similar to the ones of the last few years.



The objective is to make the best christmas themed map, the winning map will be permanently loaded at the spawn point around christmas and the creator will get 2 months of free VIP status (suggestions for more prizes are welcome). Each participant will get 3 days of free VIP, conditioning the map is decent and not a cheap attempt to get these 3 days.

Participants will need to make the map somewhere else because mapping at the spawnpoint is forbidden, so the winning map will be copied and moved to the spawnpoint afterwards. Therefore it's important to make the map on a flat surface similar to the spawn place.

A few criteria important for the map are originality, precision (avoiding objects floating above the ground when they're supposed to lay on the ground for example), realism, detail (not just a large tree with 5 decorating balls in it for example), ...

The maximum amount of objects is 198. It is forbidden to use 0.3c, 0.3d, 0.3e or 0.3x objects since they make it too easy to make christmas related maps.

If you want to participate, reply in this topic with the map name, or send the map name in a PM to me. Feel free to post images and talk about what you'r...

[Ended]Skyscraper Mapping Contest

July 03, 2013, 11:05:58 PM by [FRAG]B
A new mapping contest will be held in this skyscraper:





The objective of the contest is to make the best looking floor in the tower below by putting furniture. Participators are supposed to create their own map and use an empty floor in the building.

We will pay attention to originality, how realistic it looks, if there are any bugs, ...

This is how a floor looks like:



The maximum amount of objects for one floor is 100. Objects added to SA:MP in 0.3c, 0.3d or 0.3e are not allowed. Objects may not stick out in other floors.

If the map of the building isn't loaded, participators can load a map with only the floor objects of the building (which is enough to start furnishing). The name of this map is 'towercontest', and the password is also 'towercontest'. If someone else already loaded this map and you want to map in another world, you can load 'towercontest2', 'towercontest3', 'towercontest4', etc. These maps are all identical and only contain the floor objects.

This is how the 'towercontest' maps look like:



Warning: when many people have their map loaded in the same world, bugs could show up because there are too many objects. If this happens, go to anot...

Yeah, I'm amazed too.

Get 0.3x from the SA-MP download page: http://www.sa-mp.com/download.php

Thanks to the bunch of players who stayed on 0.3e so that they could enjoy xMovie - it means a lot.

A long overdue update

May 22, 2013, 03:46:47 AM by spacemud
Here's the well overdue announcement regarding the current state of the server, and our future plans. Apologies for the lack of meaningful updates recently.

Many of you will be well aware that the server hasn't been updated to the latest version of SA-MP, 0.3x. You'll probably be frustrated to hear that I'd rather not disclose why (although I suspect some may already know), but I can assure you it is not out of choice. Unfortunately, this means that xMovie, as it stands, will not be able to update past 0.3e. I'd like to thank the community for choosing to stick with us, and all of us have been overwhelmed with the continuing popularity that the server enjoys.

Regarding our future plans - as mentioned, we cannot update the server past 0.3e. There is only one realistic way around this, and it involves a complete rewrite of the server script. You'll be pleased to know that development of this actually started months ago, although unfortunately I have other commitments that prevent me from devoting as much time to this as I'd like. Hopefully I will be able to make some real progress on this over summer. I'm sure you will appreciate how large a task this is, and I am working alone - so it will take time. I don't want to commit myself to a strict deadline for its completion yet though, but be assured that we're working as fast as we can.

We're taking the opportunity to also develop xMovie further. The new script will be as true to the origina...
