Could be depression, that can happen to anyone. But you could just need a change of scenery and to meet new people. I thought life was really boring the first years of my working life, and I thought I was a lot more introverted and asocial than I actually am. Then I went back to school, moved, travelled, and most importantly met a lot of people my own age (and who were not like me), and it felt like I was living in a new world. When life is boring, change it and see if you're happier? It might not work for you, but then you might learn something from it

If you press the "Edit" button you can replace your upload instead of making a new vault post for each update. And if you click "Edit Screenshots" you can add a screenshot - I suspect the number of people on this site who knows what this map is about is 1, and a screenshot is a good way to change that.

Welcome to TWHL! Thanks for sharing your map! Would you mind adding a screenshot? It's unlikely that a lot of people would download your map without having an idea of what it looks like

I drink it every now and then but not every day like I used to - I miss it, but I don't like addictions and it's a lot easier for me to get up and out of bed in the morning when I am not dependent on caffeine. Plus it tastes so much better when you are not drinking it out of habit or need. It's a good suggestion though

The metamod repo has seemingly complete entity lists, and we are missing a lot: https://github.com/alliedmodders/metamod-hl1/tree/master/metamod/ents

I like that you are making a big forest map, that's not too common. And you use sounds a lot, that's very important :)

You can delete most of the files from the download. Many are included in Half-Life already, and many others are not used by your maps. Your maps only use the following files:
Alien word.wad
chateau.wad
Cosmic Horror1.wad
CrazyD.wad
cs_cbble.wad
cs_havana.wad
cs_office.wad
de_airstrip.wad
de_piranesi.wad
halflifealpha.WAD
HLAZ.wad

sound/ambience/Waiting (2) Mono.wav
t2_789.wad
t2_mrfloyd.wad
tfc.WAD
tfc2.wad
If you remove the other files that aren't needed, you cut the size down from 580 MiB to 126 MiB. This means faster downloads and less space wasted. Of course, since this is just a prototype it's not a big deal

Hi and welcome to TWHL. Did you mean "hidden"? If not, what does hidder mean in this context?
Commented 2 months ago2022-09-28 20:34:48 UTC in vault item: Server crashes (md_havic) Comment #104808
Yes, the server (and we!) need all the other files, not just the .bsp

I have added a compiled .bsp to the download.

I have taken the liberty of adding a compiled .bsp to the download.
Commented 2 months ago2022-09-28 17:52:20 UTC in vault item: Bad surface extents in kz_mountain Comment #104805
Because there is no indication that anyone has played your map, and because your map crashes the game for me, I have renamed this and moved it from "Completed" to "Problems".

Your map crashes the game with a missing WAD error message because you forgot to include kz_mountain.wad. When I create a kz_mountain.wad, the game crshes with the error message "Bad surface extens 1616/0 at position (1024, -1728, 1328)".

If you decide to fix your map, don't forget to include the skybox (gfx/env/hairyface*.tga)

It's missing
  • halflife2.wad
  • myown.wad
  • walltex.wad
I believe all or most of the textures that are missing are from Half-Life 2, and this is the WAD radu_dark_mapper was referring to: https://twhl.info/thread/view/10802

The download broke but has been restored thanks to Jessie. Unfortunately, "ambience/Lord of the Rings .wav" (yes, I meant to type the extra space at the end) is missing but the map can still be played.

The download (external link http://www.filefront.com/15704219/cubicle_hlifehotdog.rar) died. I have replaced it with your .bsp from the TWHL Cubicles mod and it seems to work fine.

The DLLs are actually not needed for switching between maps with the N and P keyboard buttons.

How to prevent the game from crashing

Delete the folders "dlls" and "cl_dlls"

The download broke. An old version of Hammy-Bob Mod had a tw_space, so I replaced the download with that - it appears to be the same map.

I played it on a public HLDM server a while back and had a good time. It reminded me of Battlefield 3's Ziba Tower a little bit. You need to constantly be looking around you
Commented 2 months ago2022-09-14 19:08:59 UTC in vault item: Light_Prefab Comment #104779
Hammer can't open the .map without modification. You can fix it by opening the file in a text editor first and replacing every instance of "\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\valve" with just "valve". That reduces the length of the "wad" property, allowing Hammer to open the map.

If this is a multiplayer map, please choose Half-Life Deathmatch as game. It's the name for Half-Life's multiplayer mode and not to be confused with Deathmatch Classic.

Thanks for uploading it again! 👏 I'm going through the entire vault, seeing what works and what doesn't, trying to fix broken downloads and other issues. I wish I could say I was especially curious about this map, but the screenshot really doesn't do your map justice! I played it now, and it was such a surprise how enjoyable it was! It was a really fun puzzle, and you put a lot of work into the ending! Thanks again for making me and everyone else able to play this after all this time!

Google Chrome is unfortunately overprotective and stops you from downloading most programs that are "not commonly downloaded". It's a headache for programmers working on hobby projects like this.

It's unplayable because the spawn points are in the ceiling so you can't move
Commented 3 months ago2022-08-27 21:41:32 UTC in vault item: Intruder: Cliffhanger Comment #104731
They updated the map so it doesn't need custom wads. It is missing sound/ambience/radio1.wav but the map can be played without it. If you try to play the map, note that the file name is misspelled so type "map intuder".
