Don't cry you pussies. Learn to empty your god damn clouded mind and accept the truth.
You're now disqualified from this compo and lucky you're not banned altogether. There's a big difference between making a suggestion, and outright insulting anyone who doesn't agree with what you want. You are the most arrogant, ignorant and self-entitled member we've had here in a while. The texture pack idea has been tossed around for a while now, and is the most popular, but ultimately this competition is up to us.
Anyways, guess it won't be very thematic but who cares.
I think I'm going to try and narrow the theme down a bit with a couple more industrial textures. Doors, metal floors, rusty panels etc. I think Archie's textures will work well with that idea, if we put aside some of the ones that don't fit.

Nobody is stopping you. I don't get your attitude at all. You've attacked everyone who has dared to say anything against your perfect vision, and then treated us like the children for feeling insulted. You're on thin ice with the admins here, to say the least.

Enjoy your week-long holiday away from TWHL.

Alright, I've got the textures off Hunter. I'll be adding a few more to it, such as doors, lights and so on. General industrial is the theme, and I think there'll be plenty of textures to get something really unique from everyone. Should be up by the weekend.

You're weak, haha... All you can do is use your admin rights. Anyone with a grain of sense knows that I've done nothing wrong. It's the same as burning a "witch" on fire in the middle ages because someones stupidity is not enough to accept new, better ways. Anyway, this is all ludicrous so just let's shut the fuck up.

I personally feel like the compo/site ban were a little premature, but still, that is no excuse for dragos' persistent negative behavior (we all know he is a decent/knowledgeable guy, but he goes off the chain every once in a while).

Can we just delete the last 8 comments and start over?

He's been increasingly insulting these last few weeks, it was going to happen sooner or later, and he only made it worse for himself. It's only a week, I'm sure he can survive. And if I'm feeling nice I'll drop the disqualification, but he's going to have to think carefully about how he treats other people here.

Poor Dragos. Such a swell mapper, but such a horrible person.

Indeed. He certainly has talent, but the arrogance really is something else.

Good news about the compo Strider. Looking forward to the official announcement. :D

But yes, I'm looking forward to the new compo. I don't really care who judges it, since the past judges have been very trustworthy, honest, and just overall swell gentlemen.

Though vote through community effort can be biased as a good screenshot can sell a map to be downloaded more than others. I vote for a screenshot-free map listing so people must try them all to really pick good ones, and keep the ratings and votes private so no one knows anything. That's all I can think of for an honest community voting system.

What the heck happend here?
What is Dragos's problem? Why is he so hostile and aggresive? What a waste.

I agree with Rimrook, let's do it like that to make sure we have a honest voting system.

I don't see why we just dont have a set panel of judges for this one. It's the way it always has been done (with some exceptions of course) and minus the judges taking a while sometimes to post results, everything goes smoothly.

What if everyone who judges doesn't download all the maps?

IMO I like the admins=judges way.

That's not to say I wouldn't participate if were different.

Seems like he just needed some attention...

Well he sure got some!

Anyway what happened to admins + past competition winners judging?

Edit: wait was it ever like that?

Personally, I think we should do 1024^3 first to give some time to deal with textures for the following compo. But it doesn't look like that's gonna happen.

Well, I've been working adding more textures. Do these seem a bit more thematic to everyone?
User posted image
I'm working on a new water texture and maybe a couple of extras, but I think this is a pretty good, slightly broad industrial set for the competition. The GldSrc ones are mostly 256x256, and in Source they're mostly 1024x1024 and include normal maps. Everything should be ready to go up tomorrow.
Personally, I think we should do 1024^3 first to give some time to deal with textures for the following compo.
I think we'll go for that idea for the very next compo, and definitely do this one again some time with a new theme.

Watch out in case Dragos does a Psilous.

I hadn't actually read pages 2 & 3 of this thread before I posted last. Can't really say I was suprised at what I found.

I like it. Let's do it.

The fact that its a limited texture pack really makes this more of a challenge, when you think about it.

I think what happened here was that everyone already knows the trends and traditions around here, and when someone who doesn't know about it shout around then everyone will oppose him for that. Well the attitude was a bit extreme so I can't be sure of that. Anyway I'm really glad for new compo. I really should have a reason to map for more than once a year.
Posted 7 years ago2011-09-23 21:52:11 UTC Post #299331
The textures look fine.
Posted 7 years ago2011-09-24 04:33:30 UTC Post #299336
Hmm, I just joined hence Newest Member: Dork Taco, and I think the textures look good,however, I would really like to see a good wood texture, and maybe a texture that could be considered a sewer??? Maybe, and Im being REALLY picky here, a marble/granite texture??? I dont really fancy the 1024 x 1024, but I could manage.

Anyways, hello to what looks to be fun community, with the exception of some judging by some posts ealier ...

Well, thats about it, I'm actually getting kinda excited heheh.

Strider won't leave us with a shite texture pack. I got faith.

i suggest to add a grass texture
Posted 7 years ago2011-09-24 22:11:03 UTC Post #299362
I suggest you actually don't add "everything" because than it wouldn't be thematic, it would just be make any map using all these textures... Not having certain things may help.
Posted 7 years ago2011-09-25 00:33:12 UTC Post #299365
One other thing, are we allowed to use Zoner's textures? Or would the one WAD file in the making be it?
Posted 7 years ago2011-09-25 00:43:30 UTC Post #299366
Of course you can use tool textures. I'm not making the rules or anything, but it's fairly obvious.

Posted 7 years ago2011-09-25 03:37:36 UTC Post #299369
Trigger, clip, null, nodraw, and associated friends will all be allowed - the main focus is the 'visible' textures, not the invisible ones. I suspect that models will be okay as long as they're not overused. No custom content will be allowed, though.

Sorry if this has been covered, but what about light textures for goldsource texlighting?
Posted 7 years ago2011-09-25 05:47:19 UTC Post #299371
There's two light textures in there, you can add them to a rad file if you want to light it that way.

Anyway, the compo is now live! Let me know if I've screwed the rules or something up and I'll fix it.

hey we should be using the same rad values of these lighting textures!
tell me what values men

Just a few quick questions:

1. You didn't mention what Source games are allowed. Can I make a L4D2 map?

2. EDIT, nevermind, I missed that rule

Also... YAY for the comp! Good luck everybody!
Posted 7 years ago2011-09-25 06:54:28 UTC Post #299375
1. I think if he said the map can be singleplayer or multiplayer he refers to basically every source mod.

2.
Tool textures are fine, as they're obviously necessary
