I continued working on my Sven Co-op map pack "Sandstorm". It's doing very well ever since the update that fixed the enormous lag on OpenGL.

And here's one of the much older screenshots:

This is pretty much the basic setup behind it:

And, yes, I used teleporting func_trains for that one. It's the 2nd level, sandstorm1

I do love the teleporting func_trains method.
I don't suppose sven-coop has fog? Could maybe use some of that to simulate a/the sandstorm and mask the draw-distance point (unless that's just where your skybox bounds are?)

Well, they ARE the skybox bounds, because I increased the view distance to 8096. Also, the func_trains look like they "pop up" when they teleport. In Software mode, they used to be visually blocked by the sky brushes, because I created another sky room.
Apparently, entities behind sky brushes are displayed even though they should not.

Actually, I can use sprites to simulate fog. I think fog isn't a thing in Sven Co-op, HOWEVER, I can use sprites with the following:
  • Render Mode: Texture
  • Render Amount: 100 (defines the density)
  • Render Color: 255 200 128 (let's give it a sandy colour)
  • Filename: sprites/wep_smoke_01.spr
  • Scale: 2 to 10 (varies from each "particle")
I also added 10 same sprites with the Glow render mode, and they look cool.

(look up, it looks like a white blob)
The glow sprites disappear when you're far away, and shine when you're very close. So it makes a wonderful extra smoke effect.

EDIT: Yes, it's 640x480. I don't have a high-end card like the GTX 1080, but rather an iGPU which is worse than Intel HD Graphics.

Fog is partially functional in Sven Co-op, see this for more information: https://sites.google.com/site/svenmanor/entguide/env_fog

@Solokiller
Thanks, but it apparently won't work well with my truck. It's because the camo net has Render Mode set to Solid. And it says that entities with Render Mode other than Normal won't be affected.

But I will still use it on the second map, with the osprey ride.

@Admer456 Are you going to have Darude - Sandstorm play on a loop in the background?

Posted 1 year ago2016-11-13 10:39:36 UTC Post #332265
@Dr. Orange
Good idea, but not exactly where I plan to insert it.

Darude - Sandstorm will be in the credits and a cinematic cutscene,
Foghat - Slow Ride will be in the osprey ride,
and for the rest, I'll make my own, probably. That includes:
  • The hill defense
  • The jeep ride
  • Other parts and sequences
  • The ending sequence

Posted 1 year ago2016-11-13 17:17:46 UTC Post #332266
For the osprey ride, how about have another helicopter or 2 flying along in formation in a spot such that they cover up the draw distance/skybox cutoff point?
Posted 1 year ago2016-11-13 18:11:40 UTC Post #332271
@Dallas
It wouldn't work, because the players can move around freely and I don't want to freeze them in a spot :(

Hmm, but then I would have to control the players even more, because these rushers can go out everywhere. When the osprey's tail explodes, you can actually get out through the window on the osprey's top.

Still, fog is my #1 option.

A friend of mine requested a model-based func_tracktrain, and also a way to tie the view to attachments on a model-based entity. This is the current result:

Next up will be to make it possible to tie monster_generic entities to the car, so they can be animated by scripted_sequences, and talk.

Don't let the water fool you - the competition only covers HL1 maps as originals :P With that in mind, it kinda looks like the Surface Tension map where you start in the pipes and canal before coming up to fight the tank and a bunch of grunts. But only kinda.

It's not Surface Tension, keep guessing :)
Either way, here's an in-Hammer overview that doesn't show a lot.

The filenames give it away! It's On A Rail. The first screenshot is the junction where you have to move the claw.

Nice idea!

Dr. Orange:
Damn, if the layout didn't give it away, then the dead end at the south should've been a dead giveaway. Looks great so far, I'll be interested in seeing how the final level will look like.

I've been turning this horrific piece of concept art:

6038k polys and 3059 verts so far. The head still needs work, and so do the UVs, but it's still very early. The biggest challenge will be to get the head texture right.

Nice head! Is it for Goldsource?
Posted 1 year ago2016-12-04 11:10:00 UTC Post #332548
Thanks! Yeah it's for GoldSource.

I'll need to edit the texture for the head. He's supposed to have bloodshot eyes, really messy hair, and really pale, sickly-reddish skin. Overall he's supposed to look like hell, which he doesn't right now.

Any suggestions? I don't have a definitive plan or layout, I'm just making stuff randomly for now

Hmm, from what I see, this is a perfect setting for a harbour, or a bay.
I don't have suggestions other than placing crates and ladders on some spots.
Maybe you could add some shelves somewhere and a couple of buckets, along with a static forklift.

Also, since you're using Imgur, you can go into your account's images, and click on any image. Now, you'll see embedding options. Select Large Thumbnail, copy the BBCode, and paste it here.

oh tread for wips nice i was uploading them to show my wips. its nice :)

its a concept map, im working on.

i know its blocky, empty and wall sizes are bad. but it is much about concepting. ill add crates, barrels and stuff.

idea: minimalist hardcore cs map, distinctive colors.

first time embeding a screen hope did right :)

You can't show a rookie design error on a forum filled with experience designers and expect it to go unnoticed.

On a note of my own, I'm pulling an old project out of stasis to continue working on not only my level design, but texture and 3D art skills as well. It may feel a little familiar.

yes :D poor me :D i was thinking "people concentrate to my concept so they wont notice flaws, so im gonna upload without fixing it yet"

obviously there is not enough concept details to make people concentrate, just plain walls :D but my mistake i didnt think at the first time "its not yet detailed much so flaws will be noticed instantaneous." :D

thanl you guys, your critics are good for a rookies like me, i didnt even notice some flaws without you :)

im continuing to develop mapping skills :D im planning to give lots of details to this map, i wont let this concept die :D

i didnt recognize these first 2 pictures but it seems office complex, first i thought its for somekind enhanced goldsource but after examining, its for source(lol :D). goodluck on it.

Been messing around with Blender to try and copy an electron microscope image of a record player stylus.
User posted image
I wouldn't be happy with it normally, but I'm not too invested in this. I actually only started it to test an idea I had for how to convert waveforms into heightmaps, a technique which I used to make the record grooves in the image.
I also added some chromatic aberration, mainly to see if I could make it look realistic enough. I'll just ask everyone to ignore the fact that it wouldn't appear in an electron microscope image.

And Crypt, those are some sexy looking screenshots.

This is my first "serious" mapping project. It's a competitive de_ map for the more general audience (pub servers =3). If not public servers, then at least one clan will accept it (I'm making the map for them):

Therefore, it won't contain breakable stuff, vehicles etc. Just a plain, classic CS 1.6 map with 2 bombspots.
When I finish the de_ version, I will make the fun_ version which will contain breakable stuff, barrels, pushable boxes, vehicles, mounted machine-guns, and so on...

The map itself is basically a mix of de_storm, de_cbble (1.6 and CS:GO's Cbble), and de_forge. Storm's aesthetics and visual style, and the layout is a mix between Cbble, Forge and my own planning.

3 is fine, as long as you don't include the 'c'

Posting c=3 is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

@Yashka, that looks pretty damn nice. The first screenshot isn't actually too bad in terms of lighting. I guess my office screen is slightly darker. :P

Update on my map:
The Ts can get to site B quicker than CTs.

So, I was too lazy to change the layout, and I punched a hole in the wall.

I, hopefully, balanced the layout now =3

@Urby
I believe that my physics teacher wrote that on the blackboard once, in 8th grade.
c stood for specific thermal capacity and its value was 3. But also, the unit for c is J/kgK so I don't think anyone noticed the mature joke, lol.

I really love the lighting in this map, nice warm colors mixed with dark. The lighting in the second picture is definitely better than the first.

Admer:
I like the level so far, but maybe I would add some railings around the edges. It would add a bit more detail to it. Also maybe some more variety with the light colors could add to it. You could have some whites, not just yellow/orange.
