Following on from the success of Jessie's func_vehicle jam, I've got another mapping challenge to occupy our bored, locked down minds for the start of 2021. (Aus and NZ can take part too, despite having pretty much figured this whole Covid thing out).

In honour of working from home, the goal of this mapping challenge is to turn your workspace/bedroom/home office into a classic padman-style rats map.

Scale is up to you, although being actually fun to play is important so I recommend making it big enough to be a good deathmatch arena.
We want to see creative use of items to aid navigation, a clever use of the furniture for routing and of course photos for comparison!

This map jam will end on the 1st of March 2021, plus the obligatory 2-week extension.
Jessie will stream the entries, as per, and makes a special request to also include theme-accurate func_vehicles which i wholeheartedly do not condone.

Feel free to use any Goldsource or Source game, singleplayer or multi. If we get a bunch of HLDM maps I'll put them on a server as per usual, though.
You could even make a rats rats map, although that might break the universe.

You'd have to be pretty fuckin' bored to bother filling this daft shit out, Urby.

About You

Name: Archie
Age: 28
Hometown: Glasgow, Scotland
Relationships: Serial monogamist. Rubbish at being single. Currently living with my long-term smoosh Anna.
Occupation: Head of Post-Production at a sports media agency.
Current goal(s): I want to write a book but have neither the skill nor the motivation to sit down and do it. Long term I want to establish my own Post-Production House.
Politics: Healthcare, education and inclusivity. I'm a weeping liberal in the current climate. Supporter of Scottish independence, but out of wanting to distance myself from Westminster rather than any misplaced nationalism.
Religion: Supporter of belief, so long as it's not at the expense of evidence or sense. I much prefer people who seek the answer, rather than those arrogant enough to think they know the answer already.

Favourite Things

Food: A big sexy curry. Usually lean Indian, but Thai and Japanese curries are also legit.
Hot drink: Coffee as black as my soul.
Cold drink: Water. Never been one for fizzy drinks.
Snacks: Cherry tomatoes. My time living in France got me into tomatoes and black coffee in a big way.
Movies: Massive movie nerd. Top 5 changes constantly, but usually includes Birdman, Blade Runner, Raiders of the Lost Ark, In Bruges and The Big Lebowski.
Videogames: I used to be a big ol' FPS gamer, but I tend to only play management and strategy games solo (Two Point Hospital and Motorsport Manager are current squeezes) and I really only ever play Divinity 2 online with Urby. Oh I also have a racing wheel and play F12019 a lot. Anna and I play a lot of Mariokart and Smash on the Switch. I just got her Animal Crossing and she's pretty hooked.
Music: Very varied. A lot of rock, a lot of soundtracks and a lot of experimental and melodic hip-hop. Childish Gambino, Logic and Don Broco get a lot of play time at the moment.
Other: Big into F1. Like, majorly. I'm that nerd who watches all the practice sessions as well. I also go to a hell of a lot of live rugby, including the entirety of the most recent World Cup in Tokyo.

Disliked/Hated Things

Food: Cheese. Fuck you, cheese.
Hot drink: Yet to meet a hot drink I dislike. Maybe like an Earl Grey.
Cold drink: Tequila. Dreadful stuff.
Snacks: Liquorice or aniseed sweets. See Urby's answer.
Movies: Movies I have to literally switch my brain off for annoy me. I've only ever walked out of the cinema once, during Transformers 2. Woeful drivel.
Videogames: I used to adore Counter-Strike, but now I can't understand how anyone plays it when it's just AWP-strike 24/7 after round 2.
Music: Easy answer. Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa - One Kiss is the worst song ever to chart. Objectively. I believe it got radio time as a cruel vault-tech style experiment on a global scale.
Other: I don't like people who can't go without looking at their phone for more than 20 minutes.

Since Covid-19 has absolutely buggered all of my travel for the upcoming months, I thought it was a good time to reflect on some of my favourite trips over the years.
If you don't know, anyone with a location-enabled phone probably has a storied location history stored on Google maps. Every time your phone makes a handshake with a location, Google logs it. Terrifying privacy implications aside, it does create a very cool, very accurate timeline of your travel.

So post your timelines and let us know what your highlights have been, and where you're looking to visit next!

Mine is fairly accurate from around 2012 onwards. Sadly lacks my trips to the north of Scotland and Ireland as a kid.
I feel like over the last few years I've done a huge amount of travel, and yet looking at this there is still so much world still to see.
User posted image
Biggest highlight for me has probably been my two months in Tokyo. What an incredibly warm and welcoming people the Japanese are.
Also absolutely adored my recent trip to Sydney. It felt a lot like my home of Glasgow, albeit with a lot more sun.

Next on the list for me is a toss-up between Thailand, New Zealand and South Africa. I've got a great friend in Johannesburg who keeps inviting me to crash on their couch, Thailand is mainly because I love the cuisine and NZL is because every Kiwi I meet is a bloody legend.
Also definitely need to hit up Argentina some time soon.

It's super low-poly - any reason you can't just recreate it with brushwork and use a texture-light to represent the bulb and glass?

You can also add an env_sprite for an added flare glow.

If you need to use the model, you'll need to create an illuminated version of the material and light the entire model.
