  • So I am getting back into the swing of mapping, to get back into the swing of things I wanted to do a simple map to warm up to hammer again. I made an attempt to do this before and never finished it because of a bad hardrive. So you can probably tell by the title I am making a map based on the popular show Whose Line is it Anyways, the US version. I intend to also do a version with the UK stage. This map will have custom textures, models, and sounds. I mean I can't make the map without the infamous buzzer. But I am not sure when I will finish this project, mapping for me is just something I do when I am bored but I WILL finish and release this map this time. And now without further ado here are some screenshots of what I have done so far, bare in mind I usually don't texture before I finish a map but I wanted preview the feel of the show I guess.

As far as models I am gonna be including such things as... -The podium -America hat -Hats (maybe) -Chairs -Drew's desk -AND MUCH MORE (depending on how involved I get with this project) *UPDATE* 2-8-12 I am playing around with lighting, this is just a temporary setup to try out a few different things. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v78/modderman2/whoseline0008.jpg[/IMG] *ANOTHER UPDATE* 2-9-12 I worked on adding more detail to the surrounds on the stage.

  • [QUOTE=Reflectent;34614857]godliest potential gamemode ever[/QUOTE] I wanted to do that but honestly I am not the best at coding so it would be a nightmare for me.
  • Be sure to make the lights on Drew's desk breakable. (2:18) [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67iNkmENs9k[/media]
  • I am playing around with the lighting a little bit, I like the way it is turning out so far, might focus the light more on the stage but I am not sure. I don't want the audience stands to be too dark because they are pretty well lit on the show. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v78/modderman2/whoseline0008.jpg[/IMG] [editline]8th February 2012[/editline] I am also thinking about making the lights switchable, when there is a game going on the area where the 4 chairs sit is always unlit. [editline]8th February 2012[/editline] I am taking a break for the night. I have been working on this for the past 3 hours and my eyes hurt. I don't think I blinked in the last 30 minutes.
  • After this, do Live at the Apollo. If you can make a stage like that, you can make a stage like Apollo.
  • I worked a little more on the surrounds on the stage as well as mocking up Drew's desk. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v78/modderman2/whoseline0010.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v78/modderman2/whoseline0011.jpg[/IMG] And a comparision... [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v78/modderman2/whose_line_set_01.jpg[/IMG] I was originally gonna do the desk as a model but to save time I will stick with brushwork.

  • Kind of random and such but I surprised my friend with this map last night. Like me he is a huge whose line fan. He filmed it... Starts at 1:20 [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRolt8qg6cA&list=UUP0HGw05M6zTy_Vi4Q52sog&index=1&feature=plcp[/media]
  • Just want to let you all know I am still working on this map, but the progress has been very small so I haven't found the need to update the thread yet. I don't want to promise a release date yet so just hang in there.

  • [QUOTE=GameDev;41550301]Was this really February 2012?.. Fucking time man.[/QUOTE] Yeah, I was really looking forward to this map, too. Lets see if he'll atleast upload what he has.
  • I sent him a message back in the spring, and he said he's still working on it, but he's busy with real life (aren't we all?) He said he might have some update pictures come the relaunch of the show. Welp, that's come and past, and I'm waiting patiently.

Welp, that's come and past, and I'm waiting patiently.[/QUOTE] Agh I feel so horrible keeping you guys in the dark, I thought my life was busy back when I responded to you Drewsko. It has gotta a bit harder recently, mother had to have a leg amputated because of diabetes so I have been dealing with that. College is taking over the other part of my day so the only real time I really start working on the map is in between quarters. But I guarantee you this, I will not just disappear without a trace. It's a tough process because being such a huge fan of Whose Line I wanna get as many details as possible and that means I have to work hard to get textures right. I am still contemplating stuff like making Drew's desk brushwork or making a model. But with limited experience importing models to source I am not sure. I had a friend who was gonna work on models and textures but he got married recently and bought a house so he has been busy as well. I think I am gonna take some time tonight though and work on the map some more, I am grateful you guys have been so patient.
  • Cool! Are you going to add some of the stuff from the new season, like the sideways set in the back?
  • [QUOTE=Ryu-Gi;41843760]Cool! Are you going to add some of the stuff from the new season, like the sideways set in the back?[/QUOTE] I thought about that but honestly I would prefer to make a map based on the new set if I was gonna do that.
