You know, my horrifying experience might have been a result of a panic attack. I think that's what happened, lol.

Now I'm calm, hopefully. It was just such a big scar that I had to show it, sorry. :(

But other than that, I'm still not a furry. ;)

Random guy comes and says: Sorry to break it to you, but you've just become a furry.
No, you're wrong, Mr. Random Guy! I did it only from curiosity. Though, since that topic (being a furry or not) is still very debatable, a lot of people would think of me as a furry. Just stop it...

Well, seeing that no-one is interested finding it out the harder way, I could've told it in the first place, to not make it clickbait.

Out of curiosity, I watched a video of what could be considered furry porn. Not a big deal, really (considering the actual content doesn't have any naked body parts etc.), but I had an awful experience afterwards. :(

I guess it could've been worse.

While I was making ts_untergrund and showing the screenshots, everyone said they were too dark. The same thing goes for de_kobbl.

And now, you're saying it's too bright!
Well, guess what, they're actually my monitor's colour settings.

Essentially, contrast is high, brightness compensates the contrast (so br. also gets a bit high) and I also turn on "vivid colours". So yeah, the lighting looks great on my end. I don't know what's the big deal with my gamma setup. In fact, I will show you a screenshot of my colour settings, and the video settings in GoldSrc.

Let's take a look at this framerate nightmare again: (well, if 6fps is a nightmare xD)
User posted image
Thank God, and thank you, Archie!
Finally, my frames are back at 20fps to 30fps instead of my GPU struggling to handle the flickering lights. :D
User posted image
The same thing here, although it doesn't change much. :/
My frames are OK, seems playable here. Nice details there and there, and I like the overall feel and taste for textures. ;)
User posted image
Ah, one of those rare spots where I get 60fps. :D
Lots of TWHL references scattered around the map. That's what makes these maps so special: wisely putting (not too many) references of things/people we know.
User posted image
Looks like you listened to my advice. xD
Or someone else told you?
User posted image
So the minimum framerate I get in the whole map is 9fps. Perfect, compared to the previous version's 4fps which was present a lot, in fact.
User posted image
Uhh... what. Ah well, not everything has to be perfect. :)
User posted image
This is a very very nostalgic pipe...
Reminds me of the Half-Life 2 sewers! :D
Also, nice use of the Glow Render Mode with sprites in the tunnel afterwards.

So yeah, I can say that, with much better framerates, this map is optimised sufficiently for older hardware, and is able to run acceptably on my almost-10-year-old laptop. You basically gave me a performance boost (and thank you for that).
If we were to rate on a scale of 10, I'd give a 9.
So, that's basically 5 out of 5 stars here.

I said "but" because you said "Visiting other parts of the world". In my opinion, something very close to my country isn't considered another part of the world, but rather a part of the part of the world where I am.

And, I have a habit of adding all sorts of words on the beginning of my sentences:
actually, in fact, and, but, however, although, despite, even though, well, fortunately, unfortunately, apparently, albeit etc.
despite there being no need for them. ;)
I think I should use those only when needed to express a certain thought.

That's it. I'll go to Montenegro because my request was completed. And as you've seen, the request was playing CS 1.6 in my school, on my school map (We couldn't load the school map on Selena's laptop, so we had to play on de_dust2).

The blog was formatted in HTML, unlike TWHL's BBCode. Converting it would've taken time!

The map itself will be released both on GB and TWHL. It's just an improved version of my school map which was made in 7th grade.
The new school map for Sven Co-op, however, is going to be much much better than this.

I didn't want to go to Montenegro because, well... I have this "fear" of travelling because I've never travelled outside of my country.
(this "event" of playing CS in school was accomplished, therefore I promised to go on the trip)

And I don't kiss anyone, just Jody. After all, my girlfriend loves kissing (and cuddling, too). :3

You didn't understand.

Basically, I made a deal:
"If Selena and I play CS in school, I will go on the trip."

(by the way, she didn't have to win in CS, it was just a friendly, casual introduction to the game)

A 120 GB SSD performs better than a 1 TB HDD, sure.
But I'm not looking for speed, because the 1TB HDD is already fast enough for my needs, and it has lots of space. The SSD is more than fast enough for my needs, but contradictory, it has much less space.

When Half-Life 3 comes out, I'll buy myself the following hardware:
  • An SSD
  • A GTX 1070
  • An Intel Core i7 processor
  • And a 2TB HDD.
So, when will it happen? Either in the far future, or never.

Urgent edit:
My laptop's HDD is a 120GB HDD.
Right now I have 6GB of free space on it.

And THAT is why I don't want a stupid 120 GB SSD. I would run out of space!

Your RAM's speed DDR4-2400 doesn't match the one of the motherboard (DDR4-2133), you should use RAM that matches the speed of your motherboard (the RAM won't work or you will get serious speed loss).
Hmm, looks like I'll have to find even more shops just to find a DDR4-2400 mobo, or DDR4-2133 RAM. Damn, I live with such harsh limitations. Maybe I'll find that eventually, or maybe I'll even order parts from other countries (if my father allows that). Interesting...
install windows xp and stop watching porn, then it will be fast as hell
I'm 14, I don't watch porn, eww. Besides, I have a girlfriend, why is there a need for porn? XD
I'd love to install XP on it, but then I'd lose some of my needed compatibility.
I made a mistake and I don't want that it happens to you with your future PC. Every time I start my computer and I open the task bar right away, Windows 10 always report a 100% disk usage.
Mistakes are made, what else can I tell you?
I'll still buy a HDD. Wait a minute. I don't even "play" games. I only test my maps on them and that's all I really do :P
[...] replacing a boot spindle drive with an SSD is probably the best value for money.
When a 500GB SSD costs $40 or less I will buy it. Period.

Windows 10 sounds good to me, but mostly in a VM :)

What a lot of you didn't understand is, I'm not complaining how slow my laptop is, and I won't do anything about it (e.g. upgrading).

I'm totally fine with 5-25fps in every game on low, because I don't even play those games for playing. I play them only to test my maps :P
In fact, my eyes are used to seeing low framerates every day. When I rarely see a 60fps video, my brain gets a pleasant, tickling feeling, though :3

And, what's the point of upgrading my laptop now, when I can save money for my dream PC?

Why I'm not getting an SSD --> according to a 120GB SSD is around 140BAM (70€). For 150BAM (75€) I can buy a 1TB HDD. That's why I'm not going to get an SSD until year 2020.

Looks like some of my advice is applied here. I didn't think how will you place the triggers, but now it looks like you placed 1 trigger for each spawn. I never thought like that :)

I thought that you will place maybe 1 trigger "wall" which is on the entrance of a hall, or something. The mechanism can be greatly optimised (by looking at the screenshots), but it's great nonetheless.

Not really. The 'soft G' only prolongs the vowel behind it, or blends the 2.
In degil's case, it blends the E and I.

Turkish, like Slavic languages and some other ones, is always pronounced phonetically (unless you have a heavy accent).

A great example is:
'Ben eve gidiyorum.'
'I am going home.'
That's also the example behind its SOV structure (but I already mentioned that). The subject goes first, then the object, and lastly, the verb.
'Ben' is 'I', 'ev' is 'home' (eve is towards/to home), 'gidiyorum' is 'am going'.

If you want an epic, dedicated mod it will take away your soul and body. Of course, if you're doing it alone by yourself.

I wasn't ready for it because I didn't have time to learn modelling and coding.
Why? Because I was rushing everything, I wanted to finish the mod in 1 year.
