Restored Community Map Pack

Recommended Posts

This is a pack of more than 100 maps originally created by Stinky, Flash and Moxar. See this thread and this thread for details.

Download: Here.

Required version of game:

  • There are some minor (visual) glitches that will be fixed in X:CE 0.34 (or maybe 0.33 HF1). However, barring these, the maps should be perfectly usable with the current X:CE version.
  • I don't know if the maps are usable with the vanilla 1.59 version, although I expect they should be (also having the minor glitches).

These maps were created for Xenonauts before the stable release, and apparently all the mappers involved had left before some changes caused these maps to no longer work properly with the stable version, so there were objects and even whole buildings missings. Unfortunately nobody took care of the maps, which is rather a shame, because the maps are very nice, so I've fixed them up. I do not intend to maintain them as such as soon as I consider the map pack finished, so in the unlikely case somebody would like to take over or even further improve the maps, feel free to do so.

Pending issues:

  • There are some drawing problems with objects taking more than one tile, most notably sofas right behind walls show through. This will be fixed with next X:CE release.
  • There are few various minor graphical problems, such as pieces of inner house walls showing through outside walls. I probably couldn't be bothered to be honest, if it annoys you, provide a fix and I'll include it.

That's where the swimming pool went! I really liked that submap but didn't realise it was one of Stinky's and just figured GH decided to get rid of it.

Actually the swimming pool was part of V20, I really don't understand why it got removed again, especially given that the stable release shipped with relatively so few maps. I think I might go and try to rescue all that stuff too.

Heh, so I was right? Never mind, and good work bringing these back in any case.

Great work llunak, thanks! I could maybe take one polish pass on these some day in the near future. :)

Can't say no to more maps--even if I have some terrible memories of missions gone wrong on like half of Stinky's maps.

Jokes aside, I appreciate the update llunak.

Industrial canal props aren't working in the game as the tile graphics are placed in the arctic folder. (this can be seen for example in the Industrial_SmogStink1_Scout_Corvette_Stinky)

I see no problem when I load that map in Steam's X:CE 0.33 . Prop sharing between tilesets doesn't work only if the props have images in atlases, which is not the case here.

Warehouse by the pool. (Or simply on the water?). Sebilians hiding in every nook and cranny. Four Xenonauts dead...

I have restored and included the two terror missions from the V20 beta, so we can all re-live the nightmares, yay! I've however slightly altered the landing zone in the medium map as that one was way too open.

The maps are technically not community maps, but they seem to fit better this map pack that restores old maps, and I'm too lazy to rename the map pack again just because of this.

Ok, I somehow couldn't resist and I've restored a number of "normal" maps from V19 as well. Some of them are a bit sparse compared to other maps, but I think quite like them (in fact a number of them seem rather good), and it's more maps.

It's very nice to have more terror maps. At default game you shot down most of terror mission ufos but when modded you would need more maps for this mission.

It's actually not that hard to create new maps, it's more or less a bit of painting in the level editor. The submap editor is somewhat harder, as it is another level of mapping, but it's not really necessary. One could probably create 10 new decent maps in one evening.

So if I download the CE modpack, I can manually add it to assets? I prefer to install things myself. Call me a control freak.

Yes, but make sure to put them in the Xenonauts\assets\mods folder.

Hello all

xenomaps.xls (from Restored Community Pack) have a column "Accepted ?" with parameters "true" or "false".

What does it mean? Is it affected on available maps in game?

These are just custom notes for the mapmakers and future mapmakers, i guess. I wouldnt take them too seriously as a quick diff made it clear that the data is not congruent.
