Pipes shouldn't shine unless they are made out of glass or something, those pipes should be dark/moody looking. I would say, the shinyness of it should be veeery close to non-existant.

Under what reason? Every idea has objections, but the one that causes less annoyance towards a large amount of people wins. You realise how many people argue back and forth when waiting for compo's? If both of them went at the same time, that would make more people happy than your simple wish to keep them seperate. Or, I guess this could be a site suggestion..

If there ever is a HL1/HL2 compo, then there could be seperate little awards that are the same, but distinguish between an award between HL1 or HL2. A.K.A, same compo, different scores. That would stop all the "Source can do more." crap.

I kinda doubt the seperate awards though, but, in the end it doesn't matter what engine your mapping for, but rather what you can do with your given resources. The judges can see past that, and I fully trust them to make un-weighted descisions

......., You realise this isn't some kind of thing to get back at eachother. Its not a compo engine war going on here. The main reason of this is because we don't "have" to wait it out for another one. You should do the same, although, instead you just create little "mini-compo's" that don't get very many people. Besides, who said there was going to be a source compo next anyways? (if it happens.)

The compo right after this should be a HL1 if not both of them again (if it happens anywho,)..

This is the kind of competition that I think could be extended to both engines to make everyone happy. It's not based near as strictly on architecture and mapping ability, so I see no reason why the engine would make a difference. As long as it makes you laugh is the general theme of it. Anyone elses opinions :confused:

Several models cant be put under a prop_static. Try switching it to a prop_physics and see if they appear. If you dont want them to move, I think theres a few flags that will do that.

Add to the forum rules,

No topics can be created over defacing and questioning religion. Let people believe what they wish with peace.

Because EVERY single thread about religion ends up making people flame each other, and draws out those who have "Complete And Total Knowledge of the Bible" to show up and prove everyones queries to religion wrong. Believe what you will, but don't make everyone hate each other for such a simple thing as http://img312.imageshack.us/img312/5947/1154056909683bs5.jpg

Religion, once something gets beyond explaining, something beyond comprehension comes into play.

My point is though nickel, he should be able to lift it "manually" under any condition. As you said, since "lift" involves gravity into play, I mean that the situation should be done under gravity.

I bow out to nickels unflinching knowledge of the bible.

Kk nickelplate, but you did contradict yourself on the rock thing though.. If he cant lift such an object under gravity, then he isnt all powerfull.

3 other points in why religion is stupid, (I think of it as a sort of guidlines so I dont piss people off, but I sure dont believe the storys)..

Why would god, or any of the other religions gods, give adam and eve "Equipment" if they didn't plan on them being used, and so we were forced out of the garden of eden.. And,

"Why would god, or any of the other religions gods" say this "Believe it or go to hell" thing when there are millions of people in south america and africa that havn't even seen white people before..... It gives them no chance, and so, that would be HIGHLY unfair to them. And,

If god is all powerfull, can he create a rock that he cannot lift.. If he cant lift it, he isn't all powerfull, and if he cant create it, he isn't all powerfull. Those cancelling each other out prove that the "All Powerfull" concept cant simply exist..

Rotate the cylinder. To do that, click on the cylinder twice to get the "four circles around" the cylinder. Then, rotate it over to lay down in a side view.

The start entity and the end entity are where the beam starts and ends. Make two info_targets (or something like that, either way, it will say target.) and give them names. Then, make the names of those two targets the start and ending entity under the env_beam. It shouldn't matter which one you put where.

A mistake I recently found out... When your putting the camera texture on the screen brush, make sure to go into the texture application and FIT it.. Otherwise it will be cut up.

I came here through playing on the TFC server http://www.axlstfc.com. They are now dead, but that was the most fun server I have ever played on. It was ONLY custom maps.. One of those maps was done so well and got me thinking of my own ideas for maps, and then I decided to make em.. I went to their site, and they had a link to mapper resources, TWHL being one of them.. And then it progressed from there.
