Does this have to be a brand new map or can it be one already released?
Posted 2 years ago2017-02-02 05:51:23 UTC Post #333293
Should be a new map, otherwise you'd have an unfair advantage over the other entries because you would have more time to complete it. We can't really stop you from doing it anyway but please be fair to everyone else :)

More progress, more setbacks. I'm not sure how I'm going to detail this since every new room results in AllocBloc: Full and further reductions in brushwork & texture detail to get it running.

That crossfire looks as sexy as the Black Mesa remake.

I'll hope you'll be able to finish it Archie despite those AllocBlocks problems, it looks so good.

Dude, that office is friggin dope and i'm digging the under pass!

Checks it out.


1. Maybe add a column on the corner office window. Seems structurally unsound in a low budget warehouse/ office. They wouldn't spend the money on extra steel to reinforce the opening. Hmm...

2. Although the brick texture is nice, it seems too heavy for all the openings. Seems like the bricks would fall. Maybe try making it appear tilt wall construction on bottom two levels and all clad in like cheap old rock wall cladding like they use on old office buildings. You could even also make it appear to have pealed/ crumbled off in places revealing the old concrete underneath and play with color combinations of the cladding.

I know this doesn't help solve your problem. But if you focus on stuff like this instead of more intricacy it might make you satisfied with this entry.

3. This might save you some clip nodes. Use masked textures for your handrails, but to make it look nice make it two seprate func_illusionary's but up to each other to reveal the texture directly on either side.

Been forcing myself to spend a couple of hours working on my entry the last couple of days so I get back into a rhythm. Almost at the state where I'll post a screenshot :sarcastic:

I got nothing in the works. I'm completely out of mapping at the moment. Hate it.

Compilation achieved! Getting there :biggrin:

One or two small graphical and clipping quirks here and there to sort out (later). Otherwise, onto making some details! (And figuring out how to connect those pipes to that doorway...) I'll prepare a screenshot soon. -ish.

I'd finish an entry if it wasn't for the project i've been working on since mid last year. It's finally done but the patent isn't. I'll update you guys on the project once I can share the information for those of you that are even interested.
Posted 2 years ago2017-02-09 23:21:02 UTC Post #333397
Sorry guys, but I guess I'll have to forfeit for this one.

Best of luck to those still running.

Gameplay and layout complete. It's a mix of crossfire and *REDACTED* for the bunker. Going to attempt to detail what I can before it crashes, then I'll submit.

I hope you will use a lot of clipbrushes Archie or you will have a lot of movement problems there for skilled players.
LJ,Bunnyhop and so on. Otherwise it looks really great :)

Looking great, Archie.

My map isn't so much a reimagining as it is a conversion. :| Shots soon.

Started working quite a while ago, then disliked first results and scrapped everything, only for other stuff to cut in and in the end I don't haven't done anything!

Still, there's 16 days more to submit anything. I'd better start working now...

I can only imagine what would have the game looked like if Tremplers mapping was the usual look of it.

reduce your texturesizes Archie everything scaled under 0.5 x 0.5 is eating too much Alloc
Posted 2 years ago2017-02-13 19:14:42 UTC Post #333484
There's not a single texture under .5, and most are now 1
Archie ArchieGoodbye Moonmen
Posted 2 years ago2017-02-13 20:00:33 UTC Post #333488
Than there is something wrong, if you want any help on that I can take a look.

I dont see how alloc could be full on that map o.O

Can you pm me a link to the map so I can test it and give you feed back? :D

Got the last bit of layout laid down, even if I'm not especially happy with it. Just want to do some lighting before I take any snaps.

Yeah, I know I've been saying I'll take a screenshot for the last 3 thread pages. I'll get there.

I planed some gameplay testings this weekend, so if anyone want to join the test, just pm me and you are invited + get the mapdownload in time.

Archie´s Map is amaizing and he is now able to do even more, sometimes are second person watching over some work, can really help finding problems/mistakes that you may forgot about because they are just small.

I don´t see it as a challange, I´m happy if we can create a good mappack as community :)
Posted 2 years ago2017-02-14 11:50:02 UTC Post #333503
@Trempler : count me in (I'll send you a PM as reminder)

Since I have "forfeit" in this challenge, I can give feedback to challengers still on the road.

Yes, and also make streams at least once a week, and finish TWHL HUB and The Core. Oh, and be quick.

I hear it was a collective map pack where several mappers tried their hand and they all mysteriously died.

The Core is an urban legend, except it's not really urban and sure as shit isn't legendary.
