Hey, what about a DM-Fractal port for Half-Life?
I've seen one and even included it in my megapack. :) Although from technical perspective maps was total horror: instead of making 4 normal sliding doors, author made ROTATING doors with speed over 9000 and no direction, just to make them appear to disappear. :D

I still like the original, so I'll love both :)

It shouldn't take more than a year, no?
Not if it's a killbox (~_o)/

And what about the warp gate? I suppose it was a simple trigger_teleport?

Meanwhile I compiled what I had...

Windawz yup, but at least author made extended tunnels to create an illusion. There was another map of the type, actually. It had just splashy textures on top/bottom ends, but still played good.

What about going further and making a nicely looking level for GZDoom, Admer? It's very easy and you can still create something nice:

Yeah, you can work wonders with GZDoom if you know what you're doing.
I tried it out myself and couldn't quite get the hang of it, but you know, maybe you can do better. It's certainly possible to - and you shouldn't have FPS issues with Doom no matter your hardware!

The only bad thing about it is you have to allign the wall textures yourself. Sometimes it's really frustrating.

@JeffMOD
Oh, you're so wrong. If I play DooM in 1280x800 I can still get to some below-30fps areas. :)

Though, I could also port 4Way to DooM 2, and the terrain, too! :D

Terrain? Can you imagine how many 3d slopes you will have to put there?! xD
Posted 2 years ago2017-04-07 14:27:19 UTC Post #334265
Windawz, a lot of it is possible. Just make triangular sectors and raise their vertices so that they resemble terrain. :)

I'd say around 1024 tri sectors.

Posted 2 years ago2017-04-07 15:34:29 UTC Post #334268
Maybe you're right, but Doom's engine isn't optimized for this. And if your Doom level looks too complicated then it will probably not be satisfying to play.
Posted 2 years ago2017-04-07 16:03:52 UTC Post #334269
I saw a map like that already, with terrain. Basically, a guy made an island map and it was HUGE! Man...

Anyway, that's where I got the idea of triangular terrain in DooM, so I implemented it into my first and only (yet) DooM map.

And about the complexity of my map:
Well, look at ts_untergrund. It looks complex, but it's not, really. I might pull off the same with this map. Basically, both have lots of triangles. :)

Meanwhile... I found a way how to apply the same Z-axis texture projection, for all my desired surfaces:

See the green and yellow lines? Basically, they're parallel to each other, and that's exactly what gives this seamlessness to the cliff texture. :D

Looks very nice. :)

Meanwhile, I added that cave:
User posted image
I think that this was a common level design technique. You reuse the same area but for a different path, on a different place in that area.

And then, after you pass the cliff, you should enter another cave and then get to the top of the castle where you fight a lot of enemy soldiers and call it a day. :)

More progress on that Sublevels rehash. Probably gonna call it Subterrane. The released version of Sublevels is nothing like what I'd built and scrapped, there were huge gaping chasms and destroyed rail bridges and all sorts of crap. Subterrane is probably going to be closer to the original vision.

@Admer456

Yeah, this technique looks very nice, when you reuse an another path for the same location. However, I'm not experienced enough to make such things, plus I hate making terrain.

@Victor-933

Looks very nice. Would never think of such usage of that door texture.

Cool quake stuff Admer, I like!

Nice one Victor. You know I never understood why the HL texture wad had Xena Warrior Princess pictures in it... Considering I don't recall them being used in original HL

DM-Fractal is almost completed. Maybe I should try to remake almost every UT map. Sounds dumb but why not?
Posted 2 years ago2017-04-08 16:53:47 UTC Post #334279
@ Windaws, that's good practice for sure. Screenies look great!

Victor, i love that generator room!

I was testing out my space map and I got the env_sun and light_environment angles perfect. Also, I can't make the ship out of a physbox because they don't light dynamically and it ruins the effect of space flight.. I tested my flight thrusters with a car physics model and well...
User posted image
It's pretty hilarious seeing that thing fly around. However, now that I know for a fact the models respond well to lighting changes and such, I need to use a model for my ship.

Now I need to figure out a design for the ship and get a model going. For now though, this car will work just fine for my proof of concept.

Does anyone have a cool sciency space shuttle design they like?

@Tetsu0 You can always use Propper to turn your brush ship into a model one.

Posted 2 years ago2017-04-08 17:37:40 UTC Post #334281
Thanks Dr. Orange. I've used propper in the past and i'm not too keen on the results. I've been getting quite good with Blender recently, so really it's just figuring out the compilation for source.

I need to get the gameplay and storyline down first before i focus on those details though.

This will be a one-off map so i'm not going to do anything crazy.

Hell, knowing my past, i probably won't even finish this thing haha.

Looks really cool Tet!

I just got done rewatching SG1, and boy did they have some awesome ship design.. Maybe use an Asgard-styled ship? I'm also in love with the x-303 and x-304 :)

If you find you'd prefer a brushwork version over a model, I could build something for ya quick.

CS 1.6

Each team has to run through a deadly obstacle course before joining the battle. The course takes about 30 seconds and the actual combat area involves hostages inside their own rescue zones so they only need to be "tagged out."
User posted image

User posted image
But my favorite bit is the cage match. One player from each team can skip most of the obstacle course by going into the AWP Door. They are teleported into the cage and with some sounds and timing the glass in the middle breaks (which should be just in time for the rest of the team to start making it into the "viewing area"). They have a knife fight to the death and the winner has to break open a hole in the floor (which is there to make it hard for someone to get in without winning the knife fight). They jump in the whole and teleport to a sniper area where they are awarded an AWP and get to cover the hostage area.

If you're going to retexture map later then I wouldn't suggest you to do that.
It looks very nice with those simple textures.
And how could I not mention those Doom door textures =)
I'd like to see de_dust remade in this style.

I mean... come on! The doors open slowly, and by that time, the floor opens so the lift below goes up. So, I put 2 Enforcers and a Hell Knight* instead.

Those are the final textures (outside of a few that may or may not get replaced with some other textures with the same style). I've made a few maps with that simple cartoon look. It gets mixed reactions but I think it's a nice change of pace in CS, especially with how many maps there are that either use drab looking stock textures or drab looking custom textures.

I was pretty happy with my "Toon Doom" door texture. :)

Also, worth noting, the "red card key" and "blue card key" doors alternate each round and the spawns are stacked on top of each other, so each team gets to do both obstacle courses.
Posted 2 years ago2017-04-09 07:40:00 UTC Post #334289
@MistaX88
I'm glad those textures are final, for some reason they fit CS 1.6. Only playermodels remove that nice cartoonish feeling.

@Admer456
You probably spent a lot of time making those caves, but I really like them.
Maybe you should add some detail to other rooms. They look kinda dull.
Posted 2 years ago2017-04-09 08:01:35 UTC Post #334290
Victor, that first shot of Subterrane with the generator is one of the prettiest things I've ever seen in Goldsource. It's not particularly complex or detailed; there's just something about it that is absolutely perfect. Excellent work!

Thanks for the compliments all.

I'm working on adding more greebles and doodads. I added fan shadows in the hallways -- I blame Mr.P and his classic map "Snake" for my obsession with those.

If you mean obsession with shadows, I have an obsession with shadows, too. :)

I once put 6 DynamicLight entities (talking about CryEngine 1) hoping the 6 sharp lights would make a blur effect and give an illusion of 1 realistic light + shadows. I got 6fps, but it was totally worth it.

Hmm... I might also show this:

This is my old school map which I made in 7th grade. This year I decided to give it a facelift because I was going to play CS 1.6 in school. The new one (if anyone's wondering) will be quite different, and will probably come out next year when I get to high school. (see, my elementary is right next to the high school, so I will still be able to work on it, and expand the map into the high school :D)

I'm extremely surprised that AllocBlock didn't even reach 60%.
Though, I'm sure that -notexscale -chop 2 -texchop 1 would work well too. :)
(well, barely, because hlrad.exe would take a few hours or a day, and it would need a lot of RAM)

I only created the Nod Window textures. I did that scene in less than 60 min... I sure could do better but lazy you know :P
