Liberal means you can legally use a very large variety of interpretations and not be disqualified. Just keep the map reasonably close to the layout.

Because the Competition 27 thread already exists, I present to you the "official" competition 27 thread!

You've all got a bit over a month to get an entry together, so map away.

We really, really cant extend this one due to judging limitations, so have them in on time.

Discuss.

Ill want mass effect 2 as well. The first would've been great if the planet exploration wasn't so douchy, and if the fighting system had a little bit more feel to it. With all of the reviews which said just that, surely they will fix it.

There's also Assassins Creed 2. They havn't released any game footage yet, so im excited. Maybe there will be more to do in between missions, heh. I have read that the main guy can swim now, so that's cool.

I do also want BG&E2, SC2, more stuff on Diablo 3, a new zelda, golden sun three (I never heard anything about it), and to a much lesser extent Lost Planet 2.

Its almost time for another Splinter Cell too.. by the good ubisoft team that makes them and not the people that did Double Agent. Its the CT people.

in Lighting issues. Post #267673
I assume its happening because some of your displacement surfaces have large triangles and others have a whole bunch of small ones right next to eachother. Its an engine problem more than anything. I think the only way to fix it would be to combine as many displacements into a single one as possible. Combine the outside wall stuff, but leave the smaller displacements on the insides of the frames/blown up walls.

You could do it another way I guess and make all of the walls with small displacement walls.. so you would have to cut up the brushes into smaller ones. The displacement triangle sizes just need to be more consistent.

If lining up the displacements gets too annoying.. you can always mask it with stuff like air conditioners and other props.

Im supposed to be writing a basic I/O tutorial, so ill jump on that if it means grabbing some more source people.

I/O is fun when you get into it, and vastly superior to what goldsource can do in terms of triggering events. It basically turns every entity into a multi_manager, heh.

That wont happen. Source textures cant be diced up as well as goldsource vanilla textures can.

Most people dont know how to texture anyway, but it will make the entries that use them more enjoyable.

I check in quite a lot, I just dont talk too much. I disagree with you though.. TWHL's not really dieing, its just not going in any particular direction.

Call me boring, but I just dont have that much to talk about ;o

I think my golden days of TWHL were back when we had douche'-tards for me to argue with, hehe.

On a 'redemptive' note: I think TWHL will kick off again if we start gearing the site towards source mapping a bit more. This means we need modeling and texturing tutorials (hint hint). If you propose em, ill probably tell you yes, hehe.

You make it sound like if it's a problem, which makes me ask the question....Do you have JavaScript enabled on your browser?
So you know, you're asking your question to the 'wrong' person. It is most certainly a problem, by definition. It really should be equipped for everyone regardless if they're javascript enabled or not. Creating rollovers with CSS is a lot more simple than doing it in javascript.. and more people can use it that way.
Well guess what, the customer is always right, even if he's dead wrong!
Assuming he is 'dead wrong'.. that's where you, the paid developer, should be ready to argue based on your experiences and tell him what he needs. Even if he tells you to do it his way, its your responsibility to experiment. Your phrase is a bit absolute to be correct. There's always a degree of freedom in between specifications.
Trust me when I say this, I don't like it as much as you do when it comes to sloppy work
Did that come off wrong or what? To say he likes sloppy work more than you is bullshit. As much as it annoys the hell out of me, potatis still finds time to point out the extremely specific bugs of TWHL. That tells us his standards go beyond what you even understand. Thats not to say that you couldn't understand and recognize what he does in the future, its just that your statement is wrong... for now

On that note, you really should learn CSS. Assuming you're fluent with CSS, a website can be made extremely quickly. Time shouldn't be a particular issue. The code is also easier to read and maintain as well. It would also look a lot nicer, as CSS provides a fuckload of options when it comes to formatting anything.

1. Open up the options, go to the controls, click into 'advanced', and click on the "enable developer console" checkbox.

2. Source games no longer use wad files for its textures. Your textures should be imported automatically by the sdk.

3. I just use the hammer compiler.. it's fine

4. And no, I cant think of one :/
