File Name : \FF7-Nibelheim.zip
Description : This is Nibelheim from the Final Fantasy 7 lore. This is actually my first map that i've released. Don't worry just because it's my first map doesn't mean its goin to be terrible (hopefully :P).
The map is based roughly on the Nibelheim in the game, but more on the Nibelheim from the short anime Final Fantasy movie, Final Fantasy VII: Last Order.
The map has custom textures, custom skybox and custom shaders and efx. I did my best to try and keep the FPS down, but with a town thats supposed to be engulfed in fire, you are bound to to have abit of a slow down. Thankfully through the use of custom efx files that i made with effectsEd, i managed to decrease the slowdown. My system is pretty average and i didn't have that much of a slow down, and im betting people out there have way better PC's than me so they should experience problems.
But for those who are experiencing performance issues, type r_dynamicglow 0 in the console
This will disable dynamic glow, improving performance alot, and the map still doesn't look too bad! In fact some people may prefer the dynamic glow turned off, even if they aren't experiencing a slow down.
Now, people may be thinking "so the map's basically this small town then?..". Don't worry, i've included a couple of SECRET AREAS. :P I'm not gonna tell you where they are but i'll give you a few hints:
1) One area is accessible by breaking something....something that you would break if you were really thirsty or if you were on fire. (This "something" is in the town itself and not inside a building)
2) For the other area, break a window. If you remember the layout of Nibelheim in the game, this window is on the house where Clouds house should be. Then once you have broken the right window...well...hopefully you should know what to do.
Installation : Place the pk3 in your base folder.
Known Bugs : CLOUDS HOUSE, THE HOTEL AND THE SHINRA MANSION ARE NOT IN THIS MAP LOL. I really don't have the skills yet to do the interior of buildings with detail. For a v2 i may.
Credits : Thanks to Squaresoft for making the Final Fantasy series.
