I think it's 2400, South African Time. Don't leave it 'til the last second, though!

1MB silly, but you can always post the zip in the map vault.(the zip will hopefully wont be as big as the bsp) :P

So if you only submit that bsp I believe it will be possible to submit it strightly into the compo. ;)

It'd be kinda hard to make my entry in a day,

so I'll just join the next one...

100% finished, only need to compile, once for testing then the last compile. I'm now positive I'll enter, just hope it wont be like the last compo I've entered.(only 4 enteries) :(

Yeh I think I was to ambitious. If I will release it now it will be a huge waste.

I think I might be more sensible for me to keep working on it and release it as a singleplayer episode in a few weeks :aggrieved:

Maybe I'll whip up a quick entry instead and see how it does

Hey my computer is so funny. It runs a 800 wpolies map on 20 fps, and it also runs a 5000 wpolies map on 20. Strange thing, but it's better then what I expected, I thought my map wont run. :glad:

My room has a normal of 2000 wpolies and when looking from one side to the other 5000. Now for the final compile! :) I'll need help with hosting, the bsp is much bigger then the map file... 3mb! And it's not all, I also have models, sprite and wav. : I assume that in the zip it'll be approximetly 4mb.

Thanks I'll try after I'll recompile it. :)
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-14 12:13:07 UTC Post #215807
yea i will probably need help hosting mine too. Lol while making my map, half way through, hammer became so slow that it took like an hour to apply a texture so i began making the other half of the map on another map file and when i finish today ill past it all together:) tightness.

Oooo... just compiled it for the second time. I wouldn't use rimrooks ultimate r_speed cytalyst on maps with single rooms, it raised my r_speeds by 900 instead of decreasing them.

Overall I can say my map is way too dark but I can't really change that now, I already compile all the times I'm allowed by my brother. The map is quite dark, if I would have raised the brightness of all the torches to 100 instead of 75 it would have looked alot brighter and still nicer. Yet this darkness gives a cool gloomy and creepy feeling. Gets you in a mood and you feel like you really are in a time when the lighting wasn't efficent- before the electric light bulb. Also it high lights the areas that are brilliently lit, like the body of water in the middle and the statue. Oh well. :tired:

Submitted mine in yesterday... good luck everyone!! :)
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 01:55:26 UTC Post #215858
zeeba-G, if it takes you an hour to apply a single texture, it may take you days to paste the two maps together when you're done. Just a thought. :P

honestly, it's not the greatest compo idea :/

I dont think it's fair to threaten to end the life of TWHL compos unless people enter water...

Considering people couldn't be bothered to eve upload a joke map to get a place suggests something to me.

Competitions will now be postponed to a later date.

Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 08:13:44 UTC Post #215874
oi the deadline isn't ever up yet .... btw I didn't mind the idea

I spent weeks on my entry but it got to complex so I'm planning on making it into a full singleplayer map instead of just releasing a rushed half-done entry.

Also you can't blame the community, if your obviously not attracting as many people as you would want
Maybe prizes would give people a little more insentive to put effort in. For instance, one thing that put me off entering my map (which I took ages to develop) into your competition was the fact that anyone below 3rd never even gets a mention no matter how well they did
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 08:26:35 UTC Post #215875
Yes they do...

We have had special mentions in the past, if you happened to look at previous compos.

I have absolutely no control over the competitions whatsoever.

I takes as much time to set up a minimod as it takes to write a couple of forum posts ;)
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 10:53:58 UTC Post #215881
hey kasp did u enter? and is it for hl1 bc thats what i made mine 4...
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 11:02:20 UTC Post #215883
I didn't. Although I have worked with water in both HL1 and Source these past few weeks.
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 11:27:25 UTC Post #215886
4 entries! Not again, I'm going to cry! Just hope they'll be good. I hope zeeba-G will manage to enter, I love having a smaller chance to win.
4 entries means only one wont enter the list, which means there is a great chance your map wont be that one. Shit! :zonked:
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 11:30:01 UTC Post #215887
there's more than 4 in now.

im finishing up mine just have to add a few things than paste it together than make it a mini mod i guess.
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 18:35:13 UTC Post #215950
OH S**T!! Please tell me I can submit my entry tomorrow... i've working till now and just don't have time to finish off. :)
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 19:12:00 UTC Post #215958
im done with my map now but im runnin into some issues. I have 2 custom sounds and 1 set of custom textures. I use hammer's compile tools so when i press f9, ive tryed typing $file$path -wadinclude metalandbluetextures all over the place but i dont think its working. And when i compile my map in half life, how is the sounds supposed to work when i run it through my newly created mod. it would be awesomejawesome if yalled just let me slip by w out makin a mod bc im runnin out of time and i realy want to enter my map.
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 19:29:38 UTC Post #215959
Enter the map without sounds or replace them with sounds from the pak file. There are water sounds for HL, so I don't know why you needed custom sounds for the compo :quizzical:
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 19:30:16 UTC Post #215960
Entered mine now, not source.

Zeeba-g: As a last resource, try -nowadtextures on the csg command line. Includes all textures.
Put the sounds in half-lifemodnamesound and they should work.
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 20:11:50 UTC Post #215967
how exactly do i enter commands, they wont work. I push f9, select expert, select new, click cmds and chose csg program, than click parms and type "-wadinclude metalandbluetextures.wad" or w out . wad at the end. Did i do something wrong?
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 20:23:50 UTC Post #215968
Can i just post the file w the sounds and textures in the folder. its only 2 sounds and 1 texture file :aggrieved: Pleasssse :confused:
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 20:58:25 UTC Post #215971

Thank Luke. He directed me to it, and I'd been looking for something like it for a long time. However, it's brand new (forty-something members), and it almost looks like it was designed by the same person that made, which got fuxed by hackers and lost all its data.


Actually, don't thank Luke, he's an ass.

Gee, where's the water? :
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 22:16:55 UTC Post #216002
lol theres a pond outside and inside theres a big area of water and its raining... il post the map soon.
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 22:22:41 UTC Post #216003
Well, yeah, I saw that one small bit of the pond, and I thought it might be raining, but it's not all that noticeable. I wouldn't associate that picture with a water themed map if it wasn't in this thread. Also, the skybox is the default desert, and there ain't no rain clouds in that sky.
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-15 22:38:07 UTC Post #216004
well when its rainin on a sunny day , the devils beatin his wife:) yea i looked into a bunch of skys but for some reason i thought this one looked the best. alien 1 looked pretty kewl too but its only sprinklin so sunny it is...
