  • I Love the map, but whenever I enter it, it lags ME SYSTEM LIKE A POT O' GOLD, if ya' know what I mean, matey! My computer is pretty good, as I can run gmod on it's highest settings. I do not know my specs.

My computer is pretty good, as I can run gmod on it's highest settings. I do not know my specs.[/QUOTE] This is what I feared. I optimised the map as much as I could, and always kept lower-end systems in mind, regularly sending out alpha versions to many testers on different machines around the world. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Valve's VIS system, a lot more is rendered in wide open spaces than usual.
  • [QUOTE=Higuys;26108266]Crap, well thanks.[/QUOTE] Does the flashlight lag your computer? There's an env_projectedtexture (basically a flashlight entity) in the blue electricals room to give a particular lighting effect, that might be the problem?

  • [QUOTE=TheFacePuncher1;26111501]I was playing through it and I saw something moving on a balcony above me. Anyone know what it is?[/QUOTE] "Death From Above", my friend. You're happy you didn't see.
  • [QUOTE=hiyougami;26106839]Philip/3kliksphilip - Mapping explanations[/QUOTE] Are you seriously thanking, The worst mapper ever?
  • I downloaded this yesterday and played through it, I like it.
  • All of the nice ambient light seems to whitewash its hyperblockiness. The street and kerb in the second screenshot really look bad.
  • [QUOTE=sphinxa279;26114767]Elaborate on death from above, what was it :ohdear:[/QUOTE] Gman running like hell xD [QUOTE=Best4bond;26115649]Are you seriously thanking, The worst mapper ever?[/QUOTE] S'cuse me mate? Yes, his old tutorials taught bad habits and nooby methods, but his new stuff is much better (and of course, he isn't the only tut-maker out there). He also lives near me, we share messages over FP. [QUOTE=Tanner;26117359]All of the nice ambient light seems to whitewash its hyperblockiness. The street and kerb in the second screenshot really look bad.[/QUOTE] I kinda agree, that part was originally closed off but I later decided to open it up. However, the curb is rounded at the corners. How may I improve that particular area?
  • [QUOTE=Best4bond;26115649]Are you seriously thanking, The worst mapper ever?[/QUOTE] Don't do this, every time he gets dissed, he shows up in a hissy-fit, then most the mapping community counter hissy-fits. Then everyone ends up banned.
  • This level looks like Apple designed it lol. But really, it looks extremely nice! I do have a question - does it have npc nodes?
  • [QUOTE=Narfin.;26126109]This level looks like Apple designed it lol. But really, it looks extremely nice! I do have a question - does it have npc nodes?[/QUOTE] Unfortunately, no. Only four were placed for Gman to do his thing. I forgot the rest v_v Plus, Apple couldn't have gotten anywhere near it. I mean, it doesn't even cost a penny, let alone £2000000000.

  • [QUOTE=henrietta;26153698]You just gave me a flashback on how depressing Mirror's Edge was.[/QUOTE] At least we get to see some sister hugging action at the end. It's so cute.
  • [QUOTE=Xeloras;26125060]Don't do this, every time he gets dissed, he shows up in a hissy-fit, then most the mapping community counter hissy-fits. Then everyone ends up banned.[/QUOTE] Ah yes, Dont diss someone because they have a hissy fit...
  • [QUOTE=GMgregster;26182408]The skybox doesn't work for me D: Also great map by the way.[/QUOTE] Probably your missing Counter-Strike: Source?
