Hey everyone, I'm a close follower of the ADF mod for PR, (I check these forums at least twice a day:smile:) and decided that I would like to contribute to the mod, and as I'm not sure how skin or model, I thought that making a map would be the best way to do this.

First off, am I welcome to contribute straight off the bat, or do I have to make an application or something similar?

Second, If I am granted permission to create a map, would someone please be able to provided information regarding all of the resources required for making a Project Reality map.

I am somewhat familiar with the editor, however I have never made a map for PR and am not quite sure as to how I would go about it.

That's all for now, hope to hear from you all.

Hi Mary.au,

you can contribute to a community mod/faction strait off the bat more or less with no real application required, thou the mod can not grantee that your stuff will be used, that depends on the quality of the map and if it fits the mod in terms of game play etc thou if your map is good enough and gets finished then there is little chance it wont be used. Thou I would talk with [R-DEV]AncientMan or [R-DEV]Chuc, can't remember which one of them is the leader but think AM is, but talk to them about what kind of map you have in mind or ideas for a map before making one to make sure your on the right track from the get go :)

Info wise, everything you need more or less to make a map for PR is in here: Modding Tutorials - Project Reality Forums (http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f189-modding-tutorials/)

Main tuts and info that you need to look at are these:

Thanks for that man, great help, I'll contact AM asap, and I'm a bit of a PR fanatic and i'm fairly sure the ideas I've come up with will fit into the PR style of gameplay.

Thanks again

Also the people working on the ADF forces mod frequent the Australia community forum BigD Gaming Community (http://www.bigdgaming.net/) so you could use those forums as well. Good luck ask some of the current mappers for support if need be :D
