It runs now...

Don't want to be overly critical, but I think you should use a bit more of the allotted time on your competition entry.

It's fullbright, very basic in brushwork, quite difficult to navigate narrow areas and only has one section resembling anything out of snark_pit (although even there, the green goo doesn't even kill you).

You've got loads of time to improve this!

Anyway, if you cant stand feedback and donīt want spend more time into it, you should move to another community maybe.

You can do a lot with snarkpit, like I did back in the days:

well technically he/she can do whatever they want for their entry - maybe minimalism is the theme they are going for. Just focus on your own and let people do what they want on theirs

I agreed with everything you said Archie!

@Penguinboy, are team entries allowed? Just curious.

Starting to have fun with this. Here's a quick jotty sketch I did during lunch today of some ideas.



I'm leaning more towards cartoonish but still realistic in ways without being too multi styled.

Mine is coming along nicely. Getting through some of the more complex architecture. Most trouble I'll have is justifying some of the layout I'll be adding to it...

Looking like Anomalous Materials to me.

Yep, it's Anomalous Materials. For Unq, I think this is the map that allow you to get to Xen.

Yes, Blast Pit - with some artistic license. Although the Lambda Core reactor could make a good deathmatch map, perhaps even with a small Xen area to teleport to. Hmm...

Super early days, but I am enjoying the hell out of making this. No prizes for guessing what it's based on Headcrab Basher - :crowbar:

Sat down to actually make a start on this last night. Ran around a bunch of maps alone, trying to decide which one to work on. Finally made my mind up in that regard.

I then fired up Hammer and closed it two hours later... No mapping occurred.

Glad to see all of you guys' progress.

I don't know what to do for my entry because all I play is skoutzknivez now a days on cs 1.6. I want to make something that plays similar to it with surfing but including a bunch of aspects from half life. That's where bounce pads came in. Any other ideas?

Maybe I could map some interior architecture from a bit of the train ride at the beginning. That's sort of what I think bounce was modeled from.

Or I could do something xen themed but to me the scheme is a little depressing.

I have some ideas but they don't relate to half life enough.

I'm thinking of creating a new kind of game play map for cs like some type of fun_ style map.

I suppose a half life themed surf map would be cool, but I want to keep the map relatively small because smaller cs maps are funner in my opinion. No one likes to sit around dead for an hour each round. Of course I could run the map in a death match style server.

@Urby Thanks for explanation! No codes! Okay only mapping grin - :D. Wow awesome work, Instant Mix!!!

It is so close to my curvy hallway :O But I saw celling like celling looks nice curvy - but why not with wall.

Okay. I will help you or I have to create mapping stuffs if I have vacation ( December 24 / 2016 to January 8 / 2017. )

Been experimenting with taking brushes from Hammer, importing them into blender and then rendering an AO map on top it. Results are that it only works on anything flat, attempted trying to texture these guys using it, but doesn't work. Works for the concrete walls behind it though!



The little red + rotates on the health station, haven't got round to making the graphics for the suit station. Either the chargers on state is animated, or it's off state is animated, and dunno what you guys would think would be better - sorta thing a modern "loading wheel" would be fun to play whilst it's charging back up again.

Also doing my usual thing of obsessing with detail on one particular area whilst the rest of the layout isn't even done yet

That's looking quite sexy IM! I don't understand what you mean by AO maps, but yout end result is looking distinctly non-Goldsrc--a very good thing User Posted Image User Posted Image User Posted Image

Been busy as hell at work and still haven't started yet, but at least made the decision to constrain my remake choices one of the original HLDM maps.

I know exactly what I want to do, it's just a matter of picking one--may just select one from random--, and then forcing myself to work on it a little bit each day. once my entry gets off the ground, I will forego sleep/food/sex to finish smile - :)

AO = Ambient Occlusion ?

Horton hears a who?
Yeah, basically mimicks how cavities of an object are usually darker than other areas, makes things look a wee bit poppier outside of using hlrad.

The experiment was to use crafty to open up the .rmf and to then remodel the area slightly so I can take a render of it.
The scene eventually looked like this in blender:

which meant I could take a face-on render like so:

With a bit of photoshop fiddling, I can they apply this to the door texture,here's a comparison with and without. It basically seems like I could've got away with some photoshop blending effects, but it was a bit more complicated for the station in the next photo.




At this rate I'm probably better off just modelling these rather than keeping them as brushes

I love playing with AO in blender, during my very breif attempt at modelling props for The Core. Looking pretty damn good IM.

Also, INSPIRATION STRIKES. Gonna start working on my entry tonight.

I've been wondering around various maps and considering a cyberpunk style alternative... but I've got a better idea. Pretty excited to start working on this!

If you want to have both states animated, you can! It's a little known feature in Half-Life that stems from Quake that a toggled texture can have animated frames by using +b, +c, +d, +e, and so on. It's just never used in Half-Life, but it does actually work. smile - :)
