Yes. Well spotted.

Very observant, just like that famous guy with the face from that show.

Next to the brush? But Urby, you better than anyone should know that the best spot is on top of that other brush.

Nobody gets to see "the device" until it's ready.
Sounds kinda sexy.

It vaguely reminds me of one of the multiplayer maps from one of the Halo games.
Looks pretty nice though.

Finished the layout of my Control sequel. This is the fastest I've ever turned around a map of anywhere near this scale, having only spent about 4 days on it.
I'm really happy with the result, hopefully it'll prove fun on the server. Just got a few entity setups and lighting tweaks left to go and I'm calling it finished.

Edit: Actually, does it still count as a fast turnaround if the map has technically been eight years' due?

It doesn't matter. Even the old version is probably the best map on the server.

[edit] no snark cave?

Well, DM_EVIL is finally at a basic alpha stage where most of what I want is in place.
I'll put a few more days into it [for gameplay sake] and then I'll release it for the server.

The gamma is all screwy, it's actually very easy to navigate the map ingame once you know the layout.

Can't see that being a hit with most DM players...

I can see a reasonable amount on dm_quakearena but whenever it comes up in the rotation almost everyone else complains about the darkness and we change map. :P

There's a difference between a map being 'ambient' and a map being 'unplayable'.

i use 4.8 for this map, so original hl1 limits ;)

Oh and wpolys are around 800-1200 max :D

Also thx :)

@ Urby

feel free to contact me if you want to playtest it, also others can playtest the map with me, more testers, more fun :)

The kryptonite looks odd. Doesn't really look like it's glowing. Did you use a glowing texture?
Posted 8 years ago2014-05-14 18:18:58 UTC Post #319428
Are those kryptonite crystals models? To make them glow, you could set them to additive, or put a small texture light underneath their origin to illuminate them. Models sample the lighting from the surface below them. You can trick it with small texture lights. Point lights work too if you want the light to cast.

Hey, guys. Again, long time no see! Studying for finals primarily and working a bit on your map makes it hard to visit forums.

Urby, fantastic job, as always! I really like the theme you've got going.

Archie, I like the layout, though I can't say I'm familiar with the first one. Can't wait to see ingame screenshots.

Tremplar, I really like the concept, but, aside from the last image, it's really friggin' dark, and lacks the great lighting you put out so far.

Moaby, I remember working on humanoid creatures using brushes. It was a pain in the ass. It looks great, but needs textures. Badly.

Anyways, here's my contribution. I need comments! I've heard the lobby looks empty, and that the lighting is dull, but it's supposed to be a nightmare (vision from the G-Man), so I'm going for an uncomfortable vibe. The only sounds are from a vending machine and (will be) from the protagonist, Eli, typing.

Most of these are currently HL1/HL2/Ep2/CS:GO props and textures. I'll soon replace them all.

Also, do you advise against texlights? In CS:GO, I see VALVe uses normal lights where texlights should work. Is there a major reason for this?

She is 17' long and 6' tall. I used the scale 24 units= 1' wide and 20 units= 1' tall. The garage is pretty small.

The scale works for architecture, but not for railings and props. I made the truck to full scale though to see how it would fit in the garage.
Posted 7 years ago2014-06-06 01:05:58 UTC Post #319661
In Hlaflief, the Inches to Units conversion is actually 1:1 and it doesn't change until HL2, 16 units being 12 inches. Many games began using conversions because computers and computer related computery things were always in powers of 2. 16, 64, 256 etc are good number to associate to feet or meters. It's also comfortable in the editor since mapping in a 12 unit grid is still funny feeling. Try it some time. Hammer can be set to 12 and you can make really real-world accurate stuff. The texture scale needs to be 0.75 though.

Oh, FYI the player in HL is 72 units tall.

Are screenshots of CS:GO maps fine?

I'm working on a de_ map with a (mostly) standard 4-square structure. It's a decrepit missile launch facility that's supposed to look kind of dark/dingy without impacting gameplay. I'm probably going to tweak the lighting forever before concluding that I've actually created an unplayable mess, but whatever. I'm also fostering a growing hatred of concrete textures.

Feedback would be great. I have a few more screenshots if anybody's interested.

If we aren't able to edit our posts based on the fear that there will be just too many dicks on the forum, then we should at least have an edit history. Solves the problem.

And anyway there are ways to cheat the system.
