The sequel to Ter Shibboleth, follwing the same boundary-pushing vein in three huge levels with impressive vistas: a snowy village in the mountains, the city of Paris (complete with Notre Dame and the Eiffel tower), and an ancient Roman city next to a colosseum. The levels run on the Drake mod which is included.

Note: These levels require a source port with increased limits and BSP2 support as well as server protocol 999. The memory heapsize must be set to at least 1 GB.
Due to the large open areas and no optimization (VIS), a considerable impact on performance should be expected.

Would it be feasible to vis these maps at all? Like, I don't care how big would the resulting files be, as long as they run better than unvised.

If I load shib6 from the console, it loads fine, but if I load it from the command line, I can't see the ground.

KenChennar Guest 8 March 2020, 3:05

I do apologize dwere but it is not feasible. Many efforts were tried but it simply cannot be done. Firstly, vis refuses to even touch these maps, it always returns in an error. Now even if vis is able to work, the amount of time to process these maps would be staggering. We're talking like, years at least because the program was never meant to do huge maps like these. Further still even if the maps are full vissed, their huge open nature would make very little to no impact on frame rate. And not just that, but there would be visual bugs everywhere like invisible walls and very long stretched out planes.

EricW has done all he could to try and make some attempt to vis these maps but sadly no luck. Vis as it currently is, just isn't equipped to handle these maps.

Oh well. I guess I'll have to wait a few years.

That picture looks like Oolacile. Very cool.

On the first map (shib6) I've cleared out the lower and higher villages, and found two areas that are blocked by gates — one needing the gold key and the other needing the silver. I have neither. (I had a silver key earlier, but used it to open the gate that got me from the mountain area at the start into the village area.)

Can anyone give me hints where the keys are?

Also: I stopped trying to get into the houses when the first half dozen were all unopenable. Am I right to ignore all the house doors now, or are some of them real?

MikeTaylor Registered 10 March 2020, 12:47

OK, I found both keys. It wasn't hard, they weren't really hidden. I suppose I was just being particularly stupid before. (The silver key is out in the open in the middle of the village nearest the silver-key gate; the gold key is on the other side of the chasm to the right of the gold-key gate, and you can just walk around.)

I found the secret sanguinoch on the second level. What is the point of picking this up? All it seems to do is drain my health.

KenChennar Guest 11 March 2020, 19:06

Bring it to living enemies or gibs, it will attack and absorb their health and give it to you where it can go beyond 100 without slowly being drained. Think of it as a lesser version of a megahealth, but you have to work to make it really effective.

MikeTaylor Registered 12 March 2020, 12:51

Ah, that makes sense — it'll work well for players who like to get right into the middle of a melee, but it's done nothing for me who prefer to snipe when I can.

Confused Guest 13 March 2020, 4:14

I'm getting a Bad surface extents crash to desktop when I try to load shib6 & shib8. The other maps are fine though.

Confused Guest 13 March 2020, 4:23

Ignore my previous post, I just needed to update Quakespasm. Derp.

MikeTaylor Registered 24 March 2020, 16:36

OK, I give up — where should I be looking for the Silver Sword in the Colosseum map?

MikeTaylor Registered 24 March 2020, 16:54

Ah, I found it!
