[b] !!! Important Edit May 2014 !!!
Seems like the link does not work on the download button, which is odd. Here's a link to the map page on garrysmod.org site( you have to log in with steam to download it).
If there are problems and the map gets deleted or the link doesn't work, please PM me!

I made this map because I really wanted to do something unique. I don't know if I succeded, but I know this : almost everything that's walkable "outside" is a displacement ( uneven terrain). Excellent for suspension contraptions. It also features a few "flat" zones for those who prefer this.

Ok let's not talk too much because you'll understand nothing. It's better if I make a "feature" list :P :

*Uneven Terrain(Displacements)
*Lots of water(it's a beach...)
*Marine platforms
*Airboat Water Hangar
*A wood "house" or something like that
*Basement
*A race track(the green area of the beach, where there are lots of trees)
*A combine "fort" mountain( just a combine guardhouse on a mountain)
*Tall skybox

I know the map is not "extremely detailed" ( hey, it's garry's mod anyway, maps should be less detailed here :P), but it gives you that "realistic" feel. I guess...
About the basement : I just felt there's something left to do. So yeah, an underground base sounded like a good ideea. It's a calm place, perfect for building wiremod contraptions ;).

[TWHL Copy-Pasta Edit]
The description is copy-paste because I don't feel like making 10 descriptions for the same map right now.
This map can be tested in hl2 also.

The terrain looks a bit bumpy and uneven at places. It could use some more texture blending as well as a whole (looks repetetive). In general, its way too big, and the insides look a bit dark. The texture scales could be upped a little if you're going to keep the areas that unnecessarily huge.

Really just work on the terrain more.. Smoothing it over will help a lot. Those trees could be positioned a bit better too, and with more types of trees.

The water towers also look a hint out of place, being right next to the ocean and all. They shouldn't be sitting directly on the ground either. They need some kind of concrete base.

And I guess you missed the best bad part : there's no 3D skybox. Oupsiee.. :D

Striker, i watched that video. I think the grassy mountain bit at the begining of that video needs to have some retexturing... i think grass texture is pretty innapropriate for some cliffs, rather use a cliffy texture for the bumpier and higher bits of that grassy mountain bit. that would work better. also add some trees there at the top of the cliff where u cant get. would just make it make much more sense.
