A flare would be nice. One that arcs well and uses particles instead of an object so it drops slow and not like a rock, defeating the purpose of it.
Why does it look so fun to play on this map? I have to check it out now.
Can anyone post a tutorial for rigging up a simple wire detonator to one of the bombs like the satchel charge or IED? I really suck with wire but I'd like to be able to make simple detonators so I dont have to rely on the crossbow or dynamite to trigger them.
Definitely has my download! It looks absolutely amazing.
The only thing I'd say, and I don't know why this bugs me so, but on the Pripyat sign the я could be cut a little cleaner.
I agree with that one bomb not needing a replacement. I liked the slick look of it. That being said, I cannot wait for this update especially the phosphorus bomb!
I didnt even know you were making a second one! Wow!
It would making aiming the projectiles easier. Like if you could maybe use a tool gun to spawn them optionally and have them face where you clicked it would help ever more.
So could some inventive people maybe right up some simple wire tutorials some time for things you can do with the bombs with that addon? I have never been good with coming up with things on my own in wire but I can easily build things once I have a blue print.
I don't know if it's a glitch or on purpose but I like the unexploded ordnance that the cluster bomb can produce. Like three or four bomblets that don't blow up, it kinda adds to it. I like it.
[QUOTE=Mio Akiyama;40224770]Why does nobody email valve for a floorplan of their building?[/QUOTE] Yeah. I could imagine them helping. Maybe even sending more pics. If you could get their attention, which isn't too hard.
Yes, thank you all. I just bath converted them all with VTFEdit to .tga and then back again. It took a while but...I think it works! I'll definitely have that other program for the future though.
I made a thread about this a while ago but it never got answered and I could really use one though since it's brought me to a halt. I imported the Portal 2 models and materials into the EP2 directory so I can use the props and decals from Portal 2 in the regular SDK and for so...
Man knowing that the creator uses the crossbow to sometimes trigger things to, that makes me feel so much better lol
Materials not being applied to models
I have a feeling the answer to this lies somewhere around here but I just haven't been able to find it and it is frustrating the hell out of me. Ok so I copied all of the models and materials for Portal 2 into my Episode 2 directory so I can use them in the regular Source S...
Is there an SVN for this or something? Because I download from the OP and its...the same thing. I never got the landmine either
The vents texture is missing but that's it. Damn I still love this map!
Yeah I'm still getting the Wire Render error but it's not effecting anything that I have seen! It's working fine and I'm enjoying it.
You'd think they'd like the exposure. They really could use it I mean hell I'd heard of them before but this turned me onto it.
[QUOTE=meazum;39825870]I wish there was a non-expensive method of keeping smoke around. I want a smoked up battlefield.[/QUOTE] After enough explosions you could have the fog of the map turn on and then change darker or lighter over time...maybe?
YESSSS I have been waiting for the newest release. I loved the last one and couldn't find a place to download it again after the switch out of GMod beta
This is the best citadel/combine nexus I have ever seen. When I did HL2RP it was all I ever wanted in one. Multiple entrances and exits, HUGE and intimidating, a pod transport system. Just wow. I mean the rest of the map is great too but. Wow.
Could definitely use a lot of improving, but God I love the concept. I have always wanted a good rocket launch pad map. For roleplaying or posing there are a lot of okay maps out there but none like this idea. Keep working on it and make it into something great!
[QUOTE=DETrooper;39200587]jesus god[/QUOTE] yeh. Holy shit this map
"Excuse crap quality" while showing full on concept art for the map. Shit my concept art is a rough top down on grid paper!
Well...damn. Thanks for the answer though! Maybe I can create a lua file to get around it though? Unlock them by making the permissions false or for everyone?
Script Locked Buttons
Yes I was wondering how you can get buttons that are locked by lua script permissions, like the ones in many rp maps, to be able to be pushed and triggered in sandbox? For example a lot of the buttons to open doors in the City 8 map series simply will not work and I have gone ...
So basically the OP is too busy to string them together and wont give the vmfs out for anyone else to do it? I really don't want to let this die. I love these collab projects.
So do you have an ETA for everything coming together? Just a set date of some kind?
bump [highlight](User was banned for this post ("Bump" - Terrenteller))[/highlight]
Yeah but not with twenty brushes. I see you used props.
A prop is not a brush. Limiting props is stupid. The map could never look decent.
Bumping because I don't want this to disappear and be forgotten.
I agree that simple is better. I don't want a complex as fuck map for the two default gm maps. The flatgrass upgrade was great. I like the changes to construct (skybox, buildings part of the map now with interiors). I think that's good enough.
Hopefully this delay means more people were able to finish their part of this project? I'm still excited for it all coming together.
For one of the spurs, maybe just have it be short and give the players the option to go down it for supplies or something. That way you still have a branching, realistic looking track but it just ends in a short siding.
Hotfix must not be ready yet? Any ETA then?
SVN is missing textures and models currently.
Saw that coming from the start, sadly.

Here, have a box. So you can pack your shit and get out of here.
I agree that having these contest maps the option of being non-playable sucks. I like to create purely ambient background maps as much as the next person, but for a contest where you need to get the community to care to vote and pay attention to the contest this doesn't seem t...
All it needs now is a full interior. I know that's a lot more work than making skins, but it would be epic.
[QUOTE=Pyth;35880521]That's not really what i'm getting at though. Even if the new codermaker5000 has a live preview updater or something, it would still feel degrading to use something so simple when having all of the knowledge of the older editor (notepad++ or whatever coder...
They need to release new floors. A new map of floors. Something. It is fun, it just needs constant updating because of what it is but no one cba to do it.
Cannot wait. Can. Not. Wait. The NORAD/Cheyenne Mountain base alone is something I have waited so long to be made into a good map. Stargate is just a plus.
Wow. Amazing stuff. This is the kind of thing Gmod is great for! And I have to know, is the soldier in the thread picture holding his rocket launcher backwards?
Always loved doing these things. [img]http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/8245/albumcoverz.png[/img]

I've been having the same issue but I have no errors in my log. I just have to try launching again from hammer and it works eventually. Not a real problem. You wouldn't happen to be mapping for the Elevator: Source game mode would you?
The best way to find bugs is to ignore everyone's posts for months and [b]never[/b] run the program yourself. There must be none.
Yeah. Like have the doors open and it's like the elevator is moving along a track, passing stuff.
Maybe just scale the detail to add down some and keep working. Release the stuff if you want but it's coming along nicely. Just scale things back so it's easier.
Fighting with Facepunch mods about bans. Ends well every time.. Also on topic, I like where the map is going. It looks like it has those little annoying problems, but that's not a true issue.
YAY! Now all I have to do is get the balls to leave the camera room on GH1 and finish that map,then I can play this one! lol
I don't think it came from the most recent Gmod update since I had it a bit before it was released, but I think it's just a Toybox problem to be fixed.
I get it as well but it comes and goes. I usually wait quite a while after starting Gmod before going into the Toybox map tab or Toybox entities/saves/weapons tab. When I open it right away, that seems to be when I get the error.
I think you should attempt it to at least see how it turns out. If it doesn't work, then it doesn't.
I'll admit, I do like some downtown edits. The WWII ones, which I admit were no where near "good" maps, did entertain me for a while. But this...what the hell did you even do to the map? You expanded buildings towards the skybox. Who would even notice that? You just re-edited ...
I hope one future version you try the full fountain and embassy area. I don't know how you would do it, but if you could make the curving of the ring there into a 3D skybox I bet it would look just awesome. The curve would probably make it anything but easy to map, but it woul...
According to Wolf Blitzer 9/11 happened this year. Now I know how they can analyze the unexistent speech, CNN has a time machine. I think that calls for its own news conference.
I'm not sure who I trust more, the uninformed important looking man in front of the blue wall on NBC, or the uninformed angry looking woman.
I love the media. Rather than wait till the President makes his speech, they speculate like he's already made it and are already analyzing it. I really like NBC "experts" that keep coming on.
I'd say it's important because the American people want to hear him be confirmed dead. I'd expect breaking news for this. But you know, we don't even know the President's angle on it yet because the news is having too much fun speculating.
So the useless spawn list thing is fixed, now how do I fix the NPCs that are showing up with black and purple checkered models? Specifically my problem is spawning the HL Source HECU Grunt does not work as it shows up black and purple in a T-pose of a model I used to have for ...
Ah. Alright then. Thank you.
Ok so I have a number of things all over GMod that are full of old instances of stuff I installed. By this I mean that things like my spawn menu and NPCs with different models/texture files and the like, all try to load the modified version of whatever I had installed in addon...
Any more updates?
What Became of This Map?
[img]http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r299/Lamarr11/citadel_cc0006.jpg[/img] This map. I'm pretty sure it had its own thread for a while that I can no longer find and the only place I can find it referred to is this image from the map pimpage thread. Does anyone else ...
Can't wait for this map to come out! The realism is just amazing and would make for a CSS map that would be like no other.
If this ever comes to fruition I would love to see it. I still love the HL2 themed maps from the HL2:DM days with the citadel and the works. We don't see enough of them anymore.
I don't think there is any left but I'll take a really close look. [editline]07:41PM[/editline] Right I found the problem. It was not a shadow cast by reference geometry, it was a shadow cast by one of the long cables on the skybox citadel model I had. I was at JUST the perf...

I was wondering if there is a way on the EP2 version of the source engine to make falling rain splash on water and ground I put in my map? Is there a particle system or something out there? Thanks appreciated for any help.
Can you do anything besides be a douche all the time?
Any updates? PLEASE SAY YET.
Yeah I can't get the override to work either.
This is BEAUTIFUL. The fog, the lonely lights on the building to the left. I'd almost say make a version a little later in the day and have the citadel light up but not have it be night time.

Saturn V/Apollo Program Models

Awesome pack. It's just too bad the Enterprise-D doesn't have more of the bridge done like with the E.
Well this thread got more attention than I ever imagined it would. EDIT: I'm probably going to have to go with a 3D skybox eventually, the 2D ones are a bit grainy and unaligned a bit.
How do I know if I am using the 2007 SDK or the 2009? EDIT: Oh. They changed it. I see.
Thank you very much for the links. I'm glad it translated so well from Halo to source. You don't really see the edges of the "cube" of the skybox at all.
Thank you both of you. It would be great if you could upload it somewhere. That is exactly what I was looking for.
Halo Ring Skybox?

Yeah that dl website sucked for me. Would be nice if it could come from elsewhere.
This map has been a great idea from the start and it looks great. I hope to see even more improvements/additions/versions of this map!
