could we Goldsource Guys use Spirit of Halflife/ Trinity Renders to make things a little more intresting ?
I'm ok with that as long as you package the entire thing up in one nice folder. I don't want to spend any time installing it.
Does the map literally need a piece of land inside it, or can it be a structure floating in air?
There doesn't have to be dirt or anything. It can just be a floating structure.

Woah, that's some sick speed mapping skills. Amazing progress for a day - how did you pull it off?

Trempler that's very nice, I'm loving the way you use those Egypt textures :)

...and thanks Grim! I need some practice in the Source engine, so I'm going to create an episode 2 map.
I'm either going to create a floating combine fortress, or a fantasy styled floating dungeon with gothic architectural style, something similar to Trempler I guess.

tempted to make it in goldsource because it requires less graphical shizznizz

Everyone should participate, rufee you too! We haven't had a proper competition with many entries for quite some time, and it seems that a lot of people are interested this time around.
Even if you think you can't win the competition, it's good practice. Back when I was crap I used to compete every time. I lost all of them, but I kept getting better and better and eventually won a competition :D.

I most certainly agree with Skals. You don't know what will happen if you dont try :)

We all know good mappers are present here on this web site and that every one needs to try hard and well to make something good and interesting. So don't worry about little details and get going! Aye sir!

Im definitely participating. :)

I only map for compos.
I set my goals very high, and although i never reach them, i never stop trying to reach them.
Compos are fantastic practice!

I just spent 5 hours last night texturing a small section of my map. I need to fight the urge to share screens.

If I could describe it in a word, I would say its... intricate.

hey what about 3d models???

Hey slow down everyone! (haha) I can't start until the new year :/
Posted 6 years ago2012-12-15 15:40:13 UTC Post #311600
Custom models are fine Ninja, but make sure you are allowed to actually use them! No stealing models from other games/mods unless you have permission from the creator. Obviously you're also allowed to use models you make yourself too.

Posted 6 years ago2012-12-17 10:49:01 UTC Post #311610
You can of course, but don't use the copyrighted ones. There are a few.

Woa, Trempler is way ahead it seems. Lovely textures! May I ask where you are getting them? Or are you making them on your own?
Posted 6 years ago2012-12-17 18:31:44 UTC Post #311617
For the Air Temple i created the most by myself and for the Space Thingie i use PhillipK´s Textures and some Natural Selection Textures :)

Ninja Defuse: needs more floating.

Trempler: wow

so... the majority of two attempts deleted. My third attempt is shaping up nicely :D. I'm away after new year, so I guess I'll try submit before xmas.

Ninja, change sky to anything else even while working and make ground less flat. And is that texture grass or swamp water? Hard to tell, even if it will change atleast use a place holder that looks nice.

And consider rounder architecture that looks more organic if it's supposed to be constructed by elves.

Way to go Rim! I might not even have time to enter but I do have some pretty inspirational sketches and ideas.

I was going to say frank lloyd wright or darwin d. martin house, but your filename gives it away... excellent idea btw, and where are you getting these fabulous textures?!

Posted 6 years ago2012-12-19 01:54:25 UTC Post #311641
Oh Captain Terror, these textures are from some CS maps i think but i will redo all by myself to fit the Original ;)

And ofc these textures are all 2.0 x 2.0 scale to save wpolys :D but i will use 1024x1024 HD Detailtextures or for normal hl1 dm 512x512 dunno if i make a SP map out of that :D

Templar, you've spun through three map ideas already.
