I heard that one guy played it once and his face melted like the nazis at the end of Raiders.

In other news, I guess I'm finished. Still tweaking a bit of voice acting, but other than that I think I'm throwing in the towel in terms of detailing. I'm right back on the AllocBlock limit (Although many thanks to Trempler for assistance there) and I'm reasonably happy with how it's looking.

Incidentally, I didn't use any direct references, but I was mainly thinking of HL2: Episode 2 when it came to designing the bunker interior.

I'll try to schedule a playtest this weekend.

Going to be blunt, the chance of me getting my entry done in 12 days time is close to 0. Got to thank the ever-increasing amount of university work for that!

I'll at least try to submit something

He may have been being facetious.

Mine looks a whole lot like the original, i.e. way shitter than Archie's. But that's pretty much what I was going for.

Well technically your entry doesnt have to look visually 'good'... When I did my level for TWHL tower or last comp I knew I wasn't very good at making visually interesting stuff so I just smashed something together and made it abstract/weird. Therefore its strength was in its personality and not its architecture.

As I was thoroughly inspecting Archie's excellent screenshots (I wouldn't expect less from a photography-oriented person like him), I had so many nitpicks I realised why I don't map anymore (I mean FFS, why do none of the window sills and lintels line up with the edges in the rows of bricks?? Change those heights, man!). I do that to my own maps too and end up giving up in despair.

That half-motivated me to try my hand at participating until I realised that, because I have a final next Friday, then it's my birthday, then I'll spend Sunday sleeping, I'd only have two days to make a map - IF I don't have to work on those two days. So... maybe I'll make a drawing and post that instead.

Re-imagine a HL level at one-hundredth the size and knock that out in 2 days. It ain't against the rules!

Going to playtest stalkfire later and maybe also archies map, is someone up to join us later ? Testing planed @ 20:00 European Timezone ( 2 hours and 34 min from now.)
Posted 1 year ago2017-02-18 17:22:37 UTC Post #333599
Yes. I'll play if i'm around my pc.

Here's an old remake of stalkyard I did. I think I might do another one. We'll see.

Against my better judgement, I also started mapping last night... Guess in entering.

How long should the extension be? 2 weeks? 1 month?
Penguinboy PenguinboyHaha, I died again!
Posted 1 year ago2017-02-19 11:12:50 UTC Post #333619
I'm pretty confident I can get this done within the next week actually... but maybe a two week extension could convince others to throw their hat in the ring?

I may end up needing a couple of extra days. Maybe. Leave my opinion out of this unless I'm sure :P

As long as you don't throw your ring in a hat, Urby. It's a painful way to misuse headwear.

Looking cool, Jackathan!

Since I waited so long I feel like I don't have a say but I am working on an entry today. I'll see where I get and if anywhere i'll post wips.
Posted 1 year ago2017-02-19 17:08:01 UTC Post #333636
I support the extension request. :) Been really busy lately - new job, going to GDC next week etc.
Posted 1 year ago2017-02-19 21:09:53 UTC Post #333640
I haven't caught up on the thread in a while, but I also support the extension request.

Like Zeeba, I've restarted my entry from scratch at least 3 times, in favor of a more fun idea, and/or I may actually be able to finish in time.

I have to say though in spite of struggling to commit to one idea, never have I had more fun coming up with possible enhancements/changes to existing maps.

If I had it to do over I'd never have picked the HLDM map I did though, which is Subtransit.

I've grown to hate the map for reasons of the contest, but man deconstructing the map I can really appreciate the skill that went into it, especially for being built way back then.

Also I have to say Trempler you are a genius for mashing up sever HLDMs together, as they are all a bit blah or have some other flaw/distraction about them singularly imo.

Some amazing WIPs in here too btw, jeez! :o

Great screens guys! Finally throwing something too. It's sill heavy WIP and needs much more detailing and adjusting (I'll change the lighting for sure).

Looks FANTASTIC sir, and that is probably my fav HLDM map. I love func_tanks too, and would like to add some to my de_subtransit to protect spawns, just for fun.

A month extension would be a breath of fresh air, pretty-please & thank-you!! User posted image

I was starting to potter around doing odd jobs and lose focus on the map as a whole, so I've made a to-do list to keep me on track.

Nothing that can't be achieved in 10 days :P

I reckon the extension, if given, should be two weeks, not a month. Seems like it's been mostly an issue of inspiration, and now that everyone is getting into it, the creation process should be a lot smoother. (IMO)

Trempler's map testing vid

Sorry, the video came out a little dark. Didn't really edit it, just strung together all the footage.

As for my final attempt, i've finished the layout. I've also decided on the theme and designed a few areas. This is huge! Progress underway! :D

I was pretty confident in my map but when i go to this thread i just :zomg:
Posted 1 year ago2017-02-20 16:17:36 UTC Post #333651
Haha, I think we all can happily concede to Trempler who has simply knocked it out the park.

The fight for 2nd and 3rd is well and truly still on, though! Can't wait to see more entries

I was initially going to remake all of On A Rail in Half-Life 2. But then it dawned upon me what a monumental task that was and all motivation to participate in this competition escaped out of me, like air from a balloon.
I wish the best of luck to everyone participating, though!

Well it doesn't look like much since it's mainly a conversion from the single player chapter, but here goes:

Whoa, bas a** work DocRok!

And Unq, blast pit will make for some awesome gameplay.

I'm doing crossfire but with a twist.

We'll have to get all the entrances into the server and play through them when they're all done.
