Uhmmm...I want to participate. But I can't get the archive to open. I have WinRAR and the archive is in .rar format. It says that it is either unknown format (which it is) or it is damaged. It might be damaged, because it is known format, which leaves me of only with the "damaged" option.

Because literally everywhere else relating to Half-Life these days isn't enough for you? :lol:

Heck even I was surprised how much of a meme it became!

it was honestly brilliant and imo the best part of the tower.

1. create a rough 'office' map you don't end up polishing because you're distracted over some life events at the time
2. slap down a heap of 'trigger_multiples' on some 'scripted sentences'
3. send 'finished' map to urby and have him fix the door trigger that you couldn't figure out

Behold, a meme is born.

Funnily enough, there was a floating scientist gimmick behind the window in the map that I don't think people actually noticed when they entered the room.

I saw the floating scientist... My brain kinda just ignored it due to being bombarded with requests for status reports.

So, who wants an extension? I'm thinking at least an extra month for people to catch up and take some of the pressure off?

An extension would be nice, I might not use all of it but I know a lot of people would.

What do you mean by a version optimised for TWHL models?

I would enjoy the month extension very much. I was on the verge of throwing in the towel, but now that I've had a new idea I'm determined to get it done.

@hammermaps, why do you not use latest version of Spirit of Half-Life 1.9 CT? Sorry I beg you... PS: Did you fix env_fog in SoHL 1.8?
lol

NO FOG because I am already using OpenGL on Proton and Linux.

I would LOVE a month extension. I got too ambitious with my level.

It would be beneficial to have an additional month to work with.

I have followed the guidelines of Strider, I will look at the problem with the fog.

Reminder to hammermaps and SourceSkyBoxer that there is likely gonna be no code change and TWHL Tower 2 is gonna stick to vanilla SoHL 1.8. It's way too late to change the "base" anyways.

I would like the deadline extension as well.

This is what happens when you work too darn quickly. :P

Seriously though, I envy the people who can pour so much time into maps/mods nowadays. The Core would certainly be out by now if I hadn't got a job and a family and all that crap.

Between work and kids, I need that extension if I even hope to commit something to this project. :P

Are we supposed to put a blank level change for the next map?
Posted 2 months ago2020-01-15 07:55:29 UTC Post #343619
No, Strider will add the level changes when he does the final compiles of each map.

Okay, I'm guessing the same thing also applies to weaponstrip?
Posted 2 months ago2020-01-15 10:30:55 UTC Post #343621
Yep.
Penguinboy PenguinboyHaha, I died again!
Posted 2 months ago2020-01-15 10:44:51 UTC Post #343622
Yep, I'll take care of everything at the weapon stripper, and the map change will happen right after passing through it. I'll also take care of the map name on the plaque at the start of the floor (let me know what you want it called when you send me the final map).

I guess I should also make this official even though I halfheartedly announced it in Discord. The deadline's extended until the 29th of February. I hope everyone can make the most of that!

I'd recommend making an edit in the OP tor reflect that change, it still says end of January.

Well crap.
My room is pretty much empty still, I might not make it this time.
I've started working on my entry way too late and what I wanted to make turned out way too complicated for Goldsource, even for Spirit. Also my lack of knowledge about Spirit specific features didn't help either. My motivation to continue working on it and to simplify my idea I had in mind has dropped to near zero.

i got something i meant to use for descent ready for this, but i'm trying something nonstandard in hl mapping, so I hope it doesnt break on other ppl's computers.

I can also test the mod on won if u need me too. There was a won only error in TWHL tower 1 and at the time I noticed fair number of ppl had run into that problem.
Posted 1 month ago2020-02-29 04:03:19 UTC Post #343817
Well, I guess that's it, the deadline's here. Don't worry too much, as long as you can get your entries in to me in the next few days, I'm not fussy. I've got a lot of work to do in the meantime...

Here's the plan for what's next:

First I've got to work out a map order. There are a tonne of entries this time (seriously, wow), and it looks like about two-thirds of them are combat/action maps, and the other third are puzzle/experimental. I want to try and keep a nice steady pace between the shooty floors and all the thinky floors.

It's a long weekend here and I'm going to try and use the time to get all the global stuff for the CDs done. Why did I do this to myself? I'll try and lay all the groundwork for the level changes and the HEV gate between floors. There's also little bit of cleanup required on some of the entries, and somewhere in all this I've got to get my 3 maps finalised too, though they're pretty close to complete. Then it's testing, testing, testing. Oh boy there's lot.

Good work, everyone. Really looking forward to playing through this one.

Strider, good luck.
