Where do all the old maps go?

Post by pointbreak » Mon Jul 30, 2018 5:00 pm

I noticed that some maps that were in the game earlier don't exist anymore... so it was hard to miss them with my blurry memory. But now I know one for sure: High and Low. I can't find it in the resource center, so where is it and why is it gone?

You can find the modification history for the default RA maps by looking through https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/commit ... ds/ra/maps

Specifically, we can see that the High and Low map was removed as part of #14768.

Kind of weird the map isn't on the resource center, though.

https://resource.openra.net/maps/28186/ reuploaded it, cause felt it is kinda my fault it was gone from official distributed list.

Still think that there are much better maps out there ;)

I believe when I first played this in 2016 there were a bunch of good maps that have now disappeared somehow. :o0:

You could try downloading a 2016-era release (release-20151224, release-20160508, release-20161015) to find their names, and then look them up on the Resource Center.

If they are missing from the RC you could try uploading them yourself and using the "upgrade map" feature (but unfortunately this feature may stop working for very old maps in the near future - we plan to rewrite large parts of it soon to improve performance and stability). There is a way to update maps using the commandline OpenRA.Utility too.

Btw, High & Low (notice the "&") is still on RC, just not the exact revision that was in the pool.

Also this was mentioned by SoScared in one of gh issues that pool maps should be auto-uploaded to RC.
