For TWHL. 'Nuff said. :)

Just one litte bug though: The "draw" beam goes out of sync halfway into the sequence. Don't know why and i don't care either. :)

Short, yet amusing! :)

I love the way you constructed the hallway. Lots of lights and stuff.

Maybe you could have decorated the Test Chamber a little more, but otherwise it's a very nice job.

Ya, i know its little boring and bland... Maybe later. :)

Neat, but it could really have used some more detail, and a bit of ambience. The architecture was generally okay, but some kind of machine inside the test chamber that projected the letters would have really been cool. It kinda strikes me as unfinished.
avatar The Mad Carrot says: 21st December 2006, 19:26 PM
True, ill add some more later. :)
avatar Archie says: star star star star 21st December 2006, 19:28 PM
:S

well, first of all:
The map leading up to the message was great. Lovely architecture and lighting..

..

but to be honest, i was a little let-down at the end.. The chamber seemed very bland, and perhaps some more flashy things could have been used :P

Heh, not important. It's a lovely message and we all wish you a merry xmas too, muzz ^_^
avatar The Mad Carrot says: 21st December 2006, 19:32 PM
Total crapola, the test chamber eh?

Ill make it more juicy later. :)
avatar Kurosaki Ichigo says: star star star star 21st December 2006, 20:50 PM
Really nice and like everyone said, the chamber needed more work on it.
avatar The Mad Carrot says: 22nd December 2006, 06:05 AM
Yeah, what a big ass mistake. I got some idea's, like a projector beam projecting the letters as if they'r being written. You know. But its gonna take a horrible amount of entities:

- env_beams
- func_trains
- info_targets

I may not get this finished before Christmas, but oh well. Im sure it'll make you go :O!
avatar FresheD says: 22nd December 2006, 08:11 AM
Screw the plainness of the test chamber.

The message is what counts. Happy Xmas to you aswell Muzz. :)

(If you're going to work on this, this map needs Xmas music.. seriously)
avatar The Mad Carrot says: 22nd December 2006, 09:57 AM
What about Xmas decoration in the whole map. ;D
avatar Daubster says: star star star star 22nd December 2006, 12:02 PM
Heheh.. After seeing the whole test lab theme, I thought, that it's gonna be some monsters spawning, etc.

Well - the map proved me wrong.
Merry Xmas to ya too, Muzz. ^^
avatar rowleybob says: 23rd December 2006, 23:02 PM
Ha Ha! Excellent! :P

I loved the look/detailing/textures of the hallway leading up as well.

MERRY CHISTMAS!!1 :)
avatar The Mad Carrot says: 24th December 2006, 09:48 AM

avatar The Mad Carrot says: 25th December 2006, 14:18 PM

lazer's outta whack but thats still pretty darn cool
avatar The Mad Carrot says: 27th December 2006, 11:59 AM
Yeah, i noticed. Probably some entity property i overlooked. :/ But im not going to figure that out. Im done with this. :)
avatar rowleybob says: 28th December 2006, 19:06 PM
Haha that's so much better!!1 The map is just a little thing for christmas, but the detailing, feel of the map is superb! The beam effects are excellent. *win
