  • [QUOTE=LewyJudge12;34779287]Seriously though guys, can I have a theme? Want something to map.[/QUOTE] Drop streetview randomly in a select country/continent + map area around you or based on its style
  • [QUOTE=LewyJudge12;34779287]Seriously though guys, can I have a theme? Want something to map.[/QUOTE] Futuristic Western Saloon bar..
  • [QUOTE=NotExactly;34772419] Edit: am I right in thinking you can only have 6 light sources per brush face or something? Should I break the floor up?[/QUOTE] You can have plenty. Only if the lights are toggle-able is when you have a problem with lights on a face.
  • [QUOTE=LewyJudge12;34779287]Seriously though guys, can I have a theme? Want something to map.[/QUOTE] Look up a ghost town and try to map it. I've got like five on the go and they're hard as hell, really satisfying once you get them right though.
  • [QUOTE=Deadchicken;34779487]Futuristic Western Saloon bar..[/QUOTE] Sounds like a set from Firefly ^^
  • I made more stuff, ignoring that curve for the moment.. I made the arched roof and building on the right: [IMG]http://i42.tinypic.com/2im135s.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i40.tinypic.com/28btaoj.jpg[/IMG] So this is a sort of monorail station thing, and still needs a lot of work inside, it'll be pretty cramped inside but players should only spend a few moments inside.. I'm pretty impressed with how it's turned out. EDIT: I've now extended the roof to 3 sections, with the extra section overhanging, making space and a place for the monorails support to go..

Hammer just wasn't designed to do curves like that.

Do you just func_detail those curves?
  • [QUOTE=vexx21322;34783690]Trying to work with curves myself, you seem like a god to me. Hammer just wasn't designed to do curves like that.[/QUOTE] I'm guessing he increased the number of faces on a arch and cylinders. However i could be very well wrong as I too am working on making nice curves
  • Hows the brushwork? (Ignoring the nodrawn pit and the messy spotlights/sprites at the back. Sorry Hiyougami.) [img]http://puu.sh/hDRF[/img]

  • [QUOTE=oskutin;34784395]I'm suffering mappers block :([/QUOTE] i challenge you to map something futuristic, like, something out of tribes ascend.
  • [QUOTE=confinedUser;34783913]I'm guessing he increased the number of faces on a arch and cylinders. However i could be very well wrong as I too am working on making nice curves[/QUOTE] That's some very nice curves you got there.

  • my first custom textures, what do I do with them? [img]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/486624570176298408/778B31DA460DAC51A53082AA9017139438608939/[/img]
  • [QUOTE=El Sito;34786983]my first custom textures, what do I do with them? [/QUOTE] Find a way to blow something up with them
  • [QUOTE=Zay333;34783853]How long does it take you to compile? Do you just func_detail those curves?[/QUOTE] The curves are actually not that hard once you start using keyboard shortcuts to align, flip, copy, and manipulate the vertices of brushes. and as far as func detailing goes, this particular map will probably benefit most from manual placement of visleafs between walls to break up the map in the correct places.
  • Well, this is all I'll post from that map, everything else has to be secreeet for the sake of the competition. I've got my company mate to make me a sitting barney & typing on the keyboard animation, so it's cool. See you when I get to map 2 for more screens of this competition.

  • Interiors for the station, a little bare at the moment: [img]http://i42.tinypic.com/2h5k5dx.jpg[/img] [img]http://i41.tinypic.com/20k9jpe.jpg[/img] This is the outside of the station, featuring the ugly exterior of the cabin, which I'm not sure I'll necessarily have to do, as the player may not even see them.

  • [QUOTE=raviool;34791288]"having trouble getting ideas on what to map? here, ill show you my favourite songs instead."[/QUOTE] Songs can definitely be inspirational.
  • [QUOTE=raviool;34791288]"having trouble getting ideas on what to map? here, ill show you my favourite songs instead."[/QUOTE] Actually its two songs that blow my mappers block out. They clear the neural pathways of the rubbish and open the mind to new ideas. I guess it's my way of smoking weed or having a pint...different things work for different people, those two songs are what works for me. And deadchicken- welcome back to us...here, have a pet squid...i think i have taught them not to kill now... If they pick up anything heavy or pointed, just run.
