It's the first RED(attacks) spawn of the first stage + first point. Do you think is too big for a map like dustbowl?
Posted 11 years ago2008-04-22 17:06:00 UTC Post #249072
No not really. Me and Moocow enjoyed Dustbowl :> If you haven't tested the size of it with other players maybe you should.

yeah but how? i cant test an unfinished.
Posted 11 years ago2008-04-22 17:31:52 UTC Post #249074
You can't? Well I just chucked my old maps on a server even though exits led to the skybox and I could still experience the gameplay.

Just patch it all together, chuck it in the post and get some mates to test it.

Nobody would want to play the map, it doesn't have BLU spawn. Maybe I would try it when I finish the first stage.

I like what I see so far. Hope it isn't possible for Engineers to get up among those plants and hide a sentry, though. :>

Yhanks.

And no, they won't be able to build sentries on plants, and I'm thinking about blocking their vision so they can't see inside vegetation, do you know any way to do it?
Posted 11 years ago2008-04-23 03:11:51 UTC Post #249081
Not particularly, though isn't there a brush entity that can stop where a Sentry is built? Why isn't there an SDK at work when I need it.

Posted 11 years ago2008-04-23 04:15:24 UTC Post #249083
Yes there is an entity to avoid engineers building the sentries. But I want to block sentries vision too, so they can't see throught vegetation
Posted 11 years ago2008-04-27 09:56:19 UTC Post #249084
Oh. A BlockLOS toolbrush might do the trick, I'm not sure how the sentry operates.

EDIT:

Some new screens of my volcano map.

One of the rooms off to the side of the central volcano room (from upstairs). there'll be a red equivalent on the other side:

The outside area, lighting and skybox aren't final yet, and i'm still working on the plant skins, coming along though:

(That overbright light and grass growing up the wall have already been fixed ;) )

omg omg omg very nice, specialy the outdoor part. Are those trees custom?
I see you have made custom grass detail, I need help with it :^_^:
Posted 11 years ago2008-04-28 00:22:29 UTC Post #249294
Thanks. :>

The trees and fern models are 'borrowed' from CS:S and I'm just reskinning them.

The grass is pretty easy, I think it's just:

"%detailtype" "tf_grass"

In the vmt, I may have to check that. After that I simply recoloured the detail/detailsprites.vmt texture.

Yeah, I've done the same thing, but I can't change the density of the grass on the .vbsp. If I change it nothing happens.
Posted 11 years ago2008-04-28 05:09:06 UTC Post #249300
Ah, well I wouldn't have a clue. I'd like to tweak the density a bit too but as you said, nothing happens. I've since learned to live with it. :P

Early work of a map for a minimod. Taking a crack at the pure-black-and-white style.
Still need to finish the vines/rock faces, add windows and doors, and snow. Its supposed to be a castle on a cliffside, but it looks more like a mansion :|

I once tried a pure black and white map, but it sucked compared to that one.
Are you going to try reskinning the models to be pure black and white?
Posted 11 years ago2008-04-30 12:11:07 UTC Post #249439
It would make a good TRON map :) Kinda like the "End of the Void" in Cyber Space.

Really I'm just making the skin black and white then jacking up the contrast on the models. Its a quick, dirty fix that fits the theme.
Its supposed to be a sort of Devil May Cry-ish idea. I'm going to try coding two new weapons for the mod, but I've never done any coding HL. I've done a lot of Pawn and C++ in the past year, though. HL code is written in C++, yes? I haven't looked at the source code, and damn VERC is don so i can't grab the Spirit source D:

Still need some damn snow. I may or may not put a ledge on one of the towers and add some more white, but unless there are any critiques, this is final still much to do now that I've sat on it. I'll start working on the interior levels-- expect lots of env_glows throughout.
Edit: Cell shaded weapons are go. Right now its just a placeholder a the 9mmar. The actual weapon will be automatic, firing as fast as secondary fire for the 9mmhandgun, with 60 bullets.

And if you're curious, the original model was the Z7 beretta on The Specialists skorpion animations with custom sleeves.

I think it would look cool with bright red, over-the-top blood effects. :D
Posted 11 years ago2008-04-30 23:43:16 UTC Post #249459
Very nice so far. The castle walls look a bit plain though - some extra details or even giving them a brush-based brick/stone texture would fix that.

Everything will be changed to fit the theme, assuming I finish it. Maybe I should move this to another thread or something. I feel like its just spamming the screenshots thread.
Also, why the hell is Verc down?

you can't spam screenshots because screenshots market is in an all time low right now, down 0.44

I agree with what daub said and i like the model skins! (i was wondering what you were going to do with that) Are you going to make the blood white too?

actually, red blood wouldn't be so bad.

If its true BnW, you'll have to modify explosions, muzzleflashes, and so on. a bit tedious until you really want to do it, which would concrete the them.

Unfortunately, this is as good as the snow is going to get. I had to use 3D_Mike's method.

Ok, really starting on the interiors now. By the way, I have coded my new gun, but I don't know how to code in two muzzleflashes to coorespond with two attatchments on the gun. Help plox?

This is a screenshot from my first Half-Life 2 map.
I'm working on a small horror themed mod.

No need for coad!

make two attachments, one for each gun in the correct spot.

the attachment QC command is like this:

$attachment <ID#> <bone> <X> <Y> <Z>

$attachment 1 "Bip01" -10 0 30 (Example)
$attachment 2 "Bip02" 10 0 -30 (Example)
make two and place them where you want the flash, like the muzzle of the gun.

then use these commands. It'll flash a sprite at the attachments.

{ event 5001 <frame#> "spritename" } (shows sprite)

{ event 5001 2 "flare1.spr" } (example)

{ event 5011 <frame#> }(shows guntype sprite)

{ event 5001 2 } (example)

the attachment 0 sprite can be anything specified, but ID 1, 2, and 3 are all preset. 1 is the mp5, 2 is the 9mm/357/shotgun and 3 is the hornet gun for some reason. for the ID 0 sprite, just choose the same sprite the 9mm uses.

just so you know;
5001 = ID 0
5011 = ID 1
5021 = ID 2
5031 = ID 3

if its still too much trouble, pass it to me.

Posted 11 years ago2008-05-06 01:10:50 UTC Post #249613
I actually looked it up right after posting that and found the solution :P
I'm just used to seeing muzzleflashes tied to bone 0, I always thought that the entire number 5001 meant a muzzleflash event.
Posted 11 years ago2008-05-06 03:05:40 UTC Post #249615
WC: Would look cooler if the snow was just small, bright dots instead of the gray fuzzy blobs it is now. It'd go better against the incredibly contrasty theme. Perhaps make the snow a little less dense in the actual playing area so it won't bother the player as much, and a lot more dense in the background/sky?
Posted 11 years ago2008-05-08 21:16:53 UTC Post #249756
I've been working on this one for about a month or so. It's for Half-Life1 deathmatch.

I have tested dr_tomb, fascinating! Good work!

My critiques:
*The sky environment you are using isn't going well with this map. A desert environment would fit this map, not green mountains.
*I found the edges of the brushes too sharp; it would give a more realistic look if they were smoother.

And I am ashamed to say that I couldn't understand why the prefix of the map name is "dr".
