Here's an unnecessarily large screenshot of my compo map. The whole map took a few hours to make so I'm not expecting a trophy. Still.

strike 1? lol and edit button for what ? oh and i spent many many hours on my map, i just dont know how to compile including wads or how to do anything like that so i wasnt even able to make it a mod. Realy thow i didnt make it into a mod because for some reason my computer doesnt even play mods, ... i put mods in the half-life folder and when i hit refresh list, none of my mods show up. And how would i have compiled my map to use sounds from a dif mod, whatever very confusing...
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-16 12:40:37 UTC Post #216060
well im just glad i got my map done. whenever im fealin overrun by so much stuff out in the real world, i can just run the map and relax. My inspiration came realy from fishing small ponds and my love for architecture and rainy days. I wish the halflife engine could handle more because i would build on so much more to the map.

Use the edit button, next to your name, instead of making double posts. Please.

Zombieloffe how did you make the horizantal water face? Been trying to place a texture with ! like that for ages. Does it have a ! mark?
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-16 17:14:36 UTC Post #216087
I geuss by making it a func_wall, all sides will have the water texture visible. Func_water only has the top face visible.

ZL:

Your map is alarmingly similar to mine, and it looks like yours has better textures. damn.

The texture I used was not a !texture. Blocks with !textures will automatically null out every face except the top. I used a func_illusionary with a non-! water texture, and placed an invisible func_water over it.

A bit of a late reply but:
However, it's brand new (forty-something members), and it almost looks like it was designed by the same person that made imageshare.co.nz, which got fuxed by hackers and lost all its data.
I just asked him and he said 'No, it uses a cdudes template' :) and it turns out the site wasn't hacked: 'it broke, so i said it got hacked -_-' :D

Ok, I nearly have all the maps (got one more to go). We only had two Source entries, and I already know what one comprises of, so I'm not even going to bother taking a look at them.

As for the HL entries, I'm still updating HL1 at the moment (it's on 57% at the moment and moving fairly steadily, since it was 21% yesterday). I also have to go and seek out a wad file that Tetsu0 used (thanks for not supplying a link to it either, or including it in the BSP).

Should be able to take a look at the HL1 entries in a couple of days, with any luck.

You don't have to judge them seperitly, you can do like it was done in snarkpit, and if I remember correctly the source entery got to the third place and the Hl1 first. ;)

You just need to ignore the advantages of the source engine:
1. Graphics- things that are uniqe for Hl1 may not be uniqe for source. Like cool and real looking terrain, it's harder to create it in Hl1. Or a fake 3D skybox in Hl1, I hardly ever see anybody place things where you can't get to them and give a feeling that there is something beyond the tiny box of the level. In source however you can see in every respectible map a 3D skybox.

2. Originalty- Things that might be quite original in Hl1 may not be original at all in source. Like a ruined city thats not in the middle of the desert. In Hl1 it was done before but it is still a bit original, in source it's like copying the original game. Also if one is funny then it sould give it some extra points.

3. Gameplay- Nither of the games have a particular advantage in this field, it's just a matter of opinion. But if you can still know which one has gameplay or not and which is funner. If one has only action with no thinking it will be automaticly rated lower then a map with puzzles and thinking.

Okay with Ants attitude I'm glad I didn't waste my map on this compo and I won't be entering another here ...

Those people who entered those source maps must of put in some effort... and you can't be bothered taking 20 mins to judge them...I think you've just shown how much twhl values its community :tired:
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-19 08:42:14 UTC Post #216361
ant mayb u could just give em first and second places and not have a third for source...
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-19 14:33:45 UTC Post #216384
Yes but what if one of the maps or both isn't even deserving for a trophy, would be akward to have only one entery that won by defult. :

I agree with 6th, this doesn't look good for you ant.
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-19 15:15:57 UTC Post #216392
i was one of the source entries, and i entered a 5-minute map just to get a trophy by default. doodle actually tried on his, so he wins by default. i informed ant of this and he agrees, therefore judging of the source entries isnt needed.
Penguinboy PenguinboyHaha, I died again!
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-19 15:21:01 UTC Post #216394
Still you could have done what that was done in Snarkpit, doodle didn't win first prize that one, though his entery was for source.

Congragulation though... well sort of. Well this leaves us 3 compo enteries for Hl1, Damn it, no fun, no true compotition if you cannot lose.
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-19 18:59:02 UTC Post #216425
well im hoping for first w my entry... If i win ill be so glad because i have some realy great ideas for a next competition that would draw many entries. main reason i entered:) I hope the twhl competitions dont ever die down" its my only real source of motivation being that i cant even play multiplayer w my out of date hl and computer.

By which time most of TWHL's members will be in adult diapers, assuming they aren't already.

man how long does it take for them to get judged, besides i thought there was only like a few enteries...

don't worry, it always takes a while... the judges do have lives as well! (surprised?! :) )

I don't think the judging takes much time, all you need is to check 3 or 4 enteries. Well it didn't take me much when I got them.(the enteries for the xen compo) I already finished a day after the one I received them. And seventh already decieded when I did.
It also takes some time to publish the decision, the TWHL site's php has many flaws.

I must say I agree with ant, though I don't believe delaying the compos till TWHL3 will help at all. People just seem to be afraid to enter compos, they fear they will lose. Many forgot that it might be just for fun or practice, winning doesn't have to be the only perpose.

I've started judging (had to wait for HL1 to update itself, and I've been really busy with Uni).

I'm missing a WAD from Tetsu0!

Posted 13 years ago2007-03-25 04:45:56 UTC Post #217009
Shit! Does that mean we have only 2 enteries for Hl1?
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-25 05:01:19 UTC Post #217010
No...

We had six entries.

Edit: Just had a look at five of the six entries.

One word: wow.

I'm absolutely beaming at the quality exhibited in these compo entries. They're all of a high standard, so I commend you all. I have one more map left to test (when I get the WAD file that is), so the results will hopefully be around soon.

I'm assuming you're ignoring the fact that Penguinboy's entry is just a box with water in it.

Posted 13 years ago2007-03-25 09:50:26 UTC Post #217020
Yup. But he gets automatic second, because there were only two Source entries.

Posted 13 years ago2007-03-25 18:35:56 UTC Post #217057
awesome, thats great that there were are entries for hl1.
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-25 18:41:24 UTC Post #217058
Ha pinguinboy is lucky, and everybody else is stupid! You could have entered a box filled with water with crates in it, then you would have gotten second place. :biggrin:

Don't you think there should be a limit as to how bad an entery can be so it could still earn a trophy? If it is just a box, why should it earn a trophy, you can give only doodle a trophy, and ignore pinguin's entery, he wasn't serious anyway. :
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-25 19:19:08 UTC Post #217060
Lol. Imagine the description of the map once the results are posted:
"Box" by PenguinBoy Grab it!
It's rare to see such beauty contained in only one room.
The HL2 water shaders have never been put to better use. The simplicity of the setting highlights the value of the reflection, giving you a sense of "less is more" and totally making the player one with the map in an overwhelming and esoteric experience. A wonder to behold, this entry will make you thirsty for more (pun intended)"
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-25 21:16:38 UTC Post #217069
i agree w elon
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-26 02:22:17 UTC Post #217083
Haha, nice comment Kasperg. However, just to argue the point, Penguin was one of the only people bothered to actually do anything at all for this compo, and since emphasis was stressed on entry numbers pulling through, he deserves it still :P
Posted 13 years ago2007-03-26 03:00:17 UTC Post #217085
^_^

seriously tho, nobody can complain because it would make them a hypocrite, because they were too lazy to even submit a box with water like i did. so technically dewdle is right. instead of complaining, you should have entered, and this wouldn't be happening!
