If you were to be stranded on an island...

Does it absolutely have to be a Xen island?

I'd much rather make it more earthlike.

Well it seems the emphasis is more on what is ON your island, less on the island itself. Would make sense considering he uploaded a template.

yeah but he made the template xen-like/

Technically if you want better textures on your island, you can have them. >:U

I've got a perfect idea, which can be made more perfect if importing textures from HL2 is allowed.

Nothing major, just finishing up a small target course, props to disco for helping me with the targets themselves.

On a side note, I'm going to TRY to make this all interior, but it ain't easy considering the small size and shape of the island.

EDIT: Did anybody notice on frontpage that it links to my site rather then showing the image? Gotta love frontpage previews.

I figure it's just a way to save paper when you print the front page. Penguinboy must be one of those fancy ecologists.

Glad you got it working :)

More like a way to save us from annoying front page image clutter.
Posted 9 years ago2010-08-02 01:27:25 UTC Post #283768
Goatse would have been nice to look at on the front page, eh?

But yeah, makes sense, even the default thumbnail is somewhat large for a frontpage preview.

Am i the only one working on rims mini compo?

HL1 only or can HL2 come and play?
Posted 9 years ago2010-08-02 10:55:04 UTC Post #283780
the template is for goldsrc only, so i'd say hl1 only

I'm sure if you PM'd rim he might make a hl2 template, but hl2 doesn't have anything xen so it probably wouldn't work.

doesn't have to be xen themed, i think

Are we allowed to modify the base island structure?
Posted 9 years ago2010-08-02 12:14:10 UTC Post #283785
Rim needs to set out some rules.

For now i guess we'll be going off 'what would you like to have on that island?' which means you're not removing or editing anything, but rather adding stuff to it.

Island decorating contest pretty much. Though I guess you can modify the island itself up to about 20% difference or so. And please if you want, retexture it.

A space ship to leave that scary place and a shot gun in case anything freaky enough to live out there came anywhere near me.

Wait a sec, I see a good opportunity for some architecture practice. I'm in buddy!

I'll assume theres aliens all around me just watching my every move; waiting to attack.

Thanks Rim, I truly feel delighted.

Might have a play with this later to flex the old mapping muscle (Mouse clicking finger I guess?)

What, another minor community project by Rimrook? Oh no! Can I be dumb enough to enter this? Yep. One island coming up.

Anyone still doing this? I just fired up Hammer and aside from an attempted prefab this was my latest map.

I might do something with it.

Also I should be doing homework instead.
Posted 8 years ago2010-09-19 23:01:40 UTC Post #285545
Im in - i had a good idea from the start but no real time to do it - compo and C.D.
After i clean up the mess i made of that mod i'll start on it.

I had to do a lot of VM to get this right. There's a shitload of off-grid vertices! What's this, Rim?

There goes my homework again.

Your grid snap was set too high.

No.

All VM and no play makes Stu a dull boy.

Got an invalid solid.

Edit2: That invalid solid isn't mine. And it's located somewhere near the pool.

If you want to make a wtf effect, I think it's possible to replicate this shadow effect in hl1 or source too:
