Oh, I think I explained it wrong. The location of the town is still the same. What I meant was that the terrain itself. They cut of parts of the terrain on the east side of town so they could add the parts of Plains in the same terrain file, and keep the normal size of the terrain.
They did not move the actually town. If that explains it better :P


Uh huh, that's what I said... they had to move the terrain limits so that they could fit the dam in there when they dropped the Plains level.
I guess that's why they changed the exit to the other gate, too...

(BTW, the displacement was 256m, or 128 pixels in my map...)

Ok, so I've been comparing the texture and bump maps that machf posted in my MinePass topic and I believe that the road on the table map shows a different section of road in the Pl area. Below is the bump map from the table map.

we know from the walkthrough that the road seen in the retail portion can be considered accurate despite there being two sections that are impassible. But according to the table map that section is instead a serious of turns. Originally I thought this was the North road based on that it was important enough to have on the map, not to mention it's the only road there. But after noticing this I'm convinced that I was incorrect.

In this close up we see that up till the turn the road matches the retail maps. But then it goes through a series of turns before going through the dot representing the dam. I recently noticed this is not on the retail section, on the retail map the road DOESN'T TOUCH the marker but goes around it. Not only that but it appears there's a black dot similar to the others in the center of the M like road. Going back to the bump map the area where the retail road runs seems unchanged, so it's possible this is a branch off of the North road. According to the walkthrough the only known ingen structures out here are the block house, radio tower (downed), and the fenced off dam area. The first two seem to remote to have a section notable section of road leading to them, granted though the exact location of the radio tower and wether or not it actually made into the level is unknown. But the fact of the matter is that the road leads to and through the dam marker. And now there's there's another dot which could only be the block house as it's the only object left.

Perhaps the building was more important than we know. All the walkthrough says is that it's "a small cement structure in the extreme north of the plains, contains some items which hint at some sort of story: a child's toy, some dishes, a weapon". The only internal description is from Ann about it being air-conditioned and guessing it was for storage. Maybe the unknown story was what made it important, otherwise we have another unknown about this level.

Somehow the presence of a radio tower in PL totally passed me by... I see it now in the walkthrough. One more thing to be sure PL: Reloaded has.

And then you have these:

Quote:

Anne122: After the bridge has collapsed behind her
Anne122c

I was really hoping that wasn't going to happen.

Anne123: First sight of plains
Anne123b
(whistles, impressed)
…must be a mile across. A 6.50 cab ride.


The first one is from te "getting to the Plains" section (aftet leaving the Town), and the second one is from the start of the actual Plains level, apparently...

And this one later:
Quote:

AnneUse003: "Uses" the scary toy clown
AnneUse003b

Yay! Scary toy clown!

It's definitely from the Blockhouse or soemwehere close to it...

That was me, alright. It's a bit outdated now, I could definitely make much better. :P

So, while Drac keeps working on his map, here's a couple of things I made using the bumpmaps:

Attachment:
PlainsPlane03b.rar [259.14 KiB]
Downloaded 4 times

Plains .WTD file (together with the corresponding .TRR and .TRI files)

Attachment:
PL1_Terrain.rar [488.53 KiB]
Downloaded 5 times

The same terrain in .TPM format

This is the second bumpmap after minor editing:
Attachment:
bumpImage2.bmp
bumpImage2.bmp [ 192.05 KiB | Viewed 86 times ]

That's the one I used to generate the terrain.

Also, look here for the new SornaMapImages.rar file to get the corresponding texture for the .TPM file...
