I tried out Overgrowth when it was in development. Years ago. Surprised to see it come up here all of a sudden.

Jamie, your maps look pretty good to me. It's hard to give meaningful feedback on a multi-player map before you have played it with other people though. If you host a game some day, announce it to @Multiplayer Crew on TWHL's Discord - it will ping anyone who has given themselves the Multiplayer Crew role and wants to know when there's a game. I always join a game if I'm home and not too busy. PS. "Initiative" is misspelled in your map's name

You can just make a func_breakable, on flags set Touch, Pressure and instant crowbar, set its health to 1, material to rocks or whatever you are using and explosion

I'd say you've got a very solid couple of maps here. My only critiques would be nit-picking really. The one or two large sealed doors that I guess would be the means of getting stuff in and out of the area are just flat surfaces, flush with the wall. I would personally build them as though they were going to open, even if they're not going to. Just inset them a little or build a supporting frame around them.

At first I was concerned that there were node graph files included with the map, and upon loading into the map I couldn't see any node paths. However, I see that these are indeed included and just limited to the combat areas. While this prevents grunts from pursuing you if you leave the area, this is actually a really clever way of preventing the player from leading the grunts into a single file death trap. Nice work there.

Otherwise, I'd have to agree with what PsyWarVet has said already: It's very heavy on the crates. It'd be great to see some alternate forms of cover in there. Maybe a couple of military trucks to explain their presence as well as a forklift or two. The original maps in WHG featured some overhead cranes and pulleys as well.

Like I said previously though, two VERY solid maps and they absolutely hit the nail on the head in terms of that classic Half-Life design. Hope to see more from you in the future.

The "sound" folder was misnamed (it was named "sounds") and the game couldn't find the sound file so I took the liberty of fixing that in the download

Oh, also another thing. Dont expect people always commenting in your submissions. I also joined here to post stuff so i could forget my problems a bit you know, leaving behind some bad stuff i have going on. But honestly, people will not comment on your submissions unless it says "First map" or its from a very well known mapper, wich sucks because it kinda made me sad. There are a lot of accounts that only have one submission without comments or reviews because of this. Thats why i always try to comment or review the vault submissions that dont got comments or reviews. Because i know how that feels.

It's been a while, so I took the liberty of fixing the .bsp and .map using a hex editor. decals2.wad is no longer required. I hope that's alright. If not, I left backups of the unmodified originals in a subfolder in the download.
Commented 6 days ago2022-06-27 19:54:35 UTC in vault item: narcosynthesis_test4 Comment #104587
Because gearbox.wad and overturn_ads.wad are nowhere to be found, I have replaced the .bsp in the download with a modified version that can be played without them. I left a backup of the original .bsp. It took a few seconds with a hex editor (you replace "valve\gearbox.wad with "valv\halflife.wad" etc. - the folder names don't matter). The map never used any textures from those WADs.

It was kinda goofy, kinda silly. But I liked it. Wish there was perhaps just a little bit more light in some spots (although this could just be my monitor) but otherwise it was pretty enjoyable going to little unique sections. I also hate that the little picture popup actually got me.

I like it very much, nice old school mapping.

The only thing I'll say is that you rely boxes as decoration way too much. Not really a problem, this is something I also do from time to time. Boxes are simple to create and lay down, they can also easily make an empty area look busy. Though some areas could use pipes, vents, conveyor belts and other fitting objects to make your maps look more complex and unique.

Hope you continue friend.

Commented 1 week ago2022-06-25 10:59:51 UTC in vault item: Civ_Garage_bm_ver2006 Comment #104580
You should consider using -wadinclude when you compile, so people don't need unnecessary .wads all over their valve directory.

Not a bad little detail map, though there's not really a lot to do in it. The light beams coming in through the windows and door look terrible, but the ones coming out of the vent (for some reason) look much better, even if they make no logical sense. Also, some of the props like the coffee mugs and coffee machine are hilariously wrong. I'm not saying I wouldn't appreciate a coffee mug bigger than my head, but still...

So overall, some pretty nice props and a lot of cool details, though some are a little overkill and wouldn't be ideal for a traditional singleplayer map.
Missed a func_detail here I think... Yikes, the carving...Missed a func_detail here I think... Yikes, the carving...

Good map, but needs a more bigger arena. Every DM map has an "arena" area where its just a big scenario where players frag and hop there

Commented 2 weeks ago2022-06-20 11:36:27 UTC in vault item: Off A Rail Comment #104567
That bridge and those shadows are undoubtedly sexy.
Gonna playtest it right now!

Also: Wpolies: Yes :lol:

EDIT: Ok I've played it.

Pros:

+ Detail wise it's great on the bridge part;
+ Weapon placement is fine.

Cons:

- Performance is a bit low on some areas (got 87 fps lowest);
- Found a part where you get stuck on a window after breaking it (consider clipping it maybe):
bruhbruh
Improvements:
  • The map could use a bit more decal-like textures, especially on the main building walls outside to remove the tiling effect;
  • Consider adding an underpassage of some sort below the bridge, maybe?
All in all it's a pretty cool map Archio. Bravo. :crowbar:

A very well made map, although it's not a great idea to allow the player falling off to death in one place and putting an invisible wall in another place, when the player expects it to be consistent everywhere.
