Wanted: jumpmap photographers

Hi Urban Terror jumpers, good to see you here!
As you know, we @ urtjumpers try to provide for you all jumpmaps 'ever released',
including screenshots of them.
Lately there are a bunch of maps without (decent) screenshots

And now you can help us, if you want.

We like your help, we need your help!

This is the case.
Of all the maps we have about 50 maps which dont have any screenshot
And another 50 maps need an update: either they have no screenshots, are to dark,
are outdated, or just bad made or not enough screenshots for such a 'big or famous'
map.
Anyone who wants to make updated pictures of a map_not_listed, is welcome to do so
after communication with us. We missed a few maps ofcourse.


So, its about 100 maps.
And each map needs this:

1 - One main screenshot (banner/bandeau)
2 - A minimum of 5 other screenshots

- Only for a mini map like deathjumps its okay to have 1 banner and 3 screenshots
- For big maps, or famous maps we prefer more screenshots. Funnyjumps deserve more
then it has now, BSTjumps should have more too.
- Its okay to have 1 banner and 10 screenshots for the big maps, famous maps, or
well-crafted map like pirateland


What we are looking for
About 10 artistically crafted photographers.
Each of them may do 10 maps, with an average of 100 screenshots (Better a few
screenshots to many, so we can choose which fits best)
You need to make screenshots according to the rules, which are listed below
First you will send us (moderators: Driller, X-RaY) 1 zip with the screenshots of 1 map (link to the zip).
This we ask, because we dont want you to work hard on 10 maps, and then find out
you have made wrong screenshots. That might happen.
Once the first set of screenies are proved all right, we (moderators: Driller, X-RaY) will
upload the pictures to the datasheet of the map. And you can do the 9 other maps
If its about screenies of a map with has already screenies, we moderators have the
right to choose between the old and the new. Its quite possible that of some maps
we prefer one already existing screenie (Ex. maps with not enough screenies, or a
screenie of a part of a map which itself is not updated). But that wont happen
much, you may assume all your screenies will be uploaded


How to make screenies?

Grrr, there should be nothing on screen except the map itself.
So no GUI or knife or text or other jumpers. I think you need the command
/cg_draw_2d and then use noclip so you dont see the knife. I think someone else
will make a post of how to have a clear screen, its lone time ago for me.


Edit by X-RaY:
The command to remove most things from screen:
"/cg_draw2d 0; /cg_drawhands 0; /cl_drawclock 0"
If chats or logs are visible, you'll have to wait for those to disappear smile

Often the screenshots looks a little bit darker than ingame. So in some cases, dark
places or uni-color places like greenmaze of uberjumps, then you have to raise the
gamma a little bit. To bright is not nice, but its more communicative than pitch
black

The main picture you name: mainpicture
The other pictures just 01/02/03 as you like it. According to development of jumps, in general
As long as the first picture is the picture you want as the main picture.
All picture extensions should be 'jpg' and case sensitive (made with /screenshotjpeg urt command)

Also, we prefer widescreen pictures.
(Thats why i stopped, im the one responsible for all those square pictures haha)

And, useless to say, we need clean screenies, unaltered unedited and not pimped


How to send us the pictures?
If you have a folder, say ut4_jmarcjumps, which contains the screenshots, then dont
zip the folder! Just select the pictures and then zip them
, and give it the name of
the map.
Then you upload it to some upload/share website, send us (moderators: Driller, X-RaY) the
link, and we do the rest. (= making banner/thumbs, uploading to the correct
datasheet)

Which maps can i do?
To keep it simple, if we have 10 participants i just divide the maps on alphabet,
per 10. If you are first, then you get the first 10 maps (Arcadium - Czechjumps)
Exceptions we make for mappers who wanna make screenies of their own maps
I made 10 sets of 10 maps each. So the first one who is willing to help us (that is, the community can say which set he wants. But i think it doesnt matter which maps you do, tbh.


When do I start?

Not yet, first we need a few helpers, then we must be sure all knows what to do, then we start with 1 map! After that is approved, then you can do the 9 other maps.
And after that, we really would enjoy it if you are willing to help us each half year with this project.

PS: Im gonna do the pre 4.x jumpmaps!
Thats also about 10 maps

Re: Wanted: jumpmap photographers

I can help with this. Just for clarification, is the 'banner' screenshot to be one that best encapsulates the theme of the map?

Yes, that should be the idea. Dontgetwet has a mapspecific and nice banner.

Thanx for helping us, also Lizart and Sensation making website look nicer.
As a start you can just pick a map you like, then I will scrap that one from the list.
Hope to see your screenies soon, but we are not in a hurry.

Re: Wanted: jumpmap photographers

I can do a couple of sets, I'll start with 6 tongue
Mythic is not outdated btw, maybe it's a little bit darker but looks almost identical overall

Also a little tip for the log lines: cg_chattime 0 should make them disappear iirc, default is 4000

Oh, wasn't there a rule for the image sizes?

In many cases, you don't care. Height should be 750px at least. If yours are according with this, you don't need to resize them. all images will be processed evenly.

Thanx Markinho, and you are right but Jmarc made a website tool for resizing, thumbnailing and cropping, so you only have to make nice screenies, and name one of them banner which you think fits best, thats all. The rest we, xray and me, will do. You can pm me a link to one map, as a test!

Re: Wanted: jumpmap photographers

A suggestion: how about making a selection of screenies available for hi-res download? I for one would love me some jumpmap wallpaper!

Good idea. Problem now is: they'r already resized neutral
Would mean a remake of all of 'm to create hi-res images.

Re: Wanted: jumpmap photographers

Hi Jumpers, we are almost halfway!

Markinho did a set, Lizart too and this month he will do another set, Valter did a set and about 5 more and will do a few. Resulting in 50 maps with 'new' screenshots, at the end of this month.
Still 50 more to go!
Yesterday ie7 said he will choose a set, (maybe Sensation will do a set?), and i hope some others will join the photographers!
Can you help us? smile

/Special thanx to Valter <3 for making always a LOT of screenies. UJ used to have just a few screenshots, but we can store more.
