This is just a prefab/concept map to showcase and share the Silent Hill "Fogworld to Otherworld transition effect I created and let people use it in their own maps. The reason it’s not just a simple box map is because I just felt like adding elements that looked like Silent Hill, to showcase the transition better, although you can still place this in MP or SP if you like. No teleportation involved in this transition, just a fade in/fade out of the screen and turning off of the light_environment, and having some surface areas and props change in the transitioning.
I love SH and I found a bunch of Silent Hill themed maps that were awesome, but could have had a better transition effect, or just didn’t have one at all. So I went ahead and made a map to give out to mappers to use in their own Silent Hill maps with an improved transition effect.
As I have quit the mapping/modding scene years ago, I did not want to spend much time on this. I already spent about 4 times the amount of time allotted, so I had to stop doing the extra exterior work and simply make sure the important part, the transition, was done well. Sadly, this means I had to leave some minor things out, undone, and a little glitchy in a couple places, and ran out of time to tweak them. So if you feel something should be changed about this map, I included the VMF file so you can make whatever changes you want, as this is the whole point of putting this together for the community anyway. enjoy
IF YOU USE THE TRANSITION IN A SILENT HILL THEMED MAP LET ME KNOW! I’d love to see 'em. My email is email@example.com
Good luck and have fun
