I thought I'd try to create a moviepack specifically for Chico's Styball Server.
But my photoshop skills are severely lacking.
Does anyone want to continue where I left off?

I've just uploaded a new map to the server. It's exactly the same dimensions as the previous one, but has some extra decoration thrown in around the edges. To try and give it a sort of ice rink feel.

I've created a floor, and if, within your moviepack/settings.cfg you set:
GRID_SIZE_MOVIEPACK 944
it will stretch across the grid quite nicely.
Oh, and you'll have to go into settings and change "Floor Detail: Textured Plane" to see the floor.

It looks somethink like this:


The floor I used is here, any designer might want to use it as a template:


I was going to sort of base it on:


If anyone wants to give it a go and they need anything from me, let me know.

So you just want the floor to look like this last pic you posted? I have passed my drivers licence, so I have many freetime now. I'll probably try to make a floor.

Thanks.
The floor would certainly be the most difficult part to do. But feel free to go crazy on the other sections.
I don't want it to be white though, as this is not a good colour for tron, you can't see the menu for one thing.
I was just using that to loosely base it on. Really, do what you like with it.
I would like to keep that shape though. That's the main point of the exercise.

Oh, and congratulations on passing your driving test.

Hmm, I cant find this "Floor Detail" setting. Do I have to look in the normal settings.cfg or the settings_visual.cfg or somewhere else?

no, it's in the game.

system setup > display settings > Detail settings > Floor Detail

Make sure it's set to Textured plane.

it may be in settings_visual.cfg, I don't know.

I tried to make something, I'm kinda bad with colors so I just made it boring gray/grey.





for those with adobe ps and who'd like to change colors:


http://www.infidaisical.net/floor.psd


Haven't been able to try it out because styball seems to be full ALL THE TIME and the time I was able to enter I got stuck syncing.


PS

Great server ed.

Thanks, that's great.
I made a wall to go with it (sort of). Here's some shots:




I used penguins, it's easier to find shots of lots of penguins than people.
Here's the image. it's called rim_wall_a.png, it's quite big(just over 1mb), if you want to use it you will have to make 3 copies of it and call them: rim_wall_b.png, rim_wall_c.png and rim_wall_d.png.
Anyone feel free to redo it better.

within the moviepack folder you need to create a file called "settings.cfg"
within this file you add the line:

GRID_SIZE_MOVIEPACK 944

this will stretch the image across the entire grid, instead of tiling it, since the max hieght of the arena is 944.

Wow!
You ever play speedball2 on megadrive? That's what it should have looked like. Great atmosphere.
To play with, I prefer lack's offering with the penguins. This is just a bit too dark. I am really looking something fun and simple. But that's just my opinion, I love the style, there's nothing stopping you from making a speedball style pack for it too.
