We are a small group of non-professional source mappers creating a new standard of Half Life 2 Roleplay map, Wishing for it to be used universally throughout the Garrysmod community. We all specialise in our own areas and willingly accept new members. The map will be based around the theme and architectural design of Half Life 2. We plan for the map to have all sorts of buildings and creations, featured in Half Life 2. **Though this thread is new, it is simply a revived thread for the collaboration, which has been going on for around 4 months. Everyone thought it died, because the last post was about 3 months ago. So, instead of bumping, I made a new thread. We had a slight delay, but, are back on board work and are over 50% complete.
“There has been many of these projects before, what’s to say you won’t fail?” - To be honest, there is no guarantee that we will succeed. Mapping takes a huge amount of time and effort and a lot of the time goes wrong. But, it is all trial and error. We will do our best to output a good map to the community. The project has already faced one halt, but we have managed to progress on. And a lot of the map has been completed.
“Eventually something will go something will go horribly wrong, someone will move the whole map off grid, break something or delete everything.” - We currently use Dropbox to store all of our projects files, everything is saved every 5 minutes and there are lots of different versions of the map, not only that, but the files are also backed up on everyone’s computer. Loosing the files is near impossible. We also communicate through Steam to keep everyone informed of news.
“*How long will it take to produce the map?” - *There is currently no ETA on when the map will be released. We work on it everyday to try and complete it. But, if you would like to speed up the process, feel free to join and help.
“*How can I join the collaboration” - *We openly invite anyone to join and it is very simple. You can either post on here, or PM me privately that you would like to join, and specify your Dropbox email. And your account will be synced with the collaborations dropbox in no more than 24 hours. Note: You must have a Dropbox account. We accept anyone with any standard of work and specialisations.
“Will the map be public?” - Yes, the map will be publicly released upon completion and you will be able to download it on Garrysmod.org and other sites dedicated to source mapping.
“Images look weird. Lighting is off, things are un-finished!” - Images are all WIP, the lighting is temporary (Though the settings will be night) and the map is really un-finished, it just gives you a slight taster of what’s to come.
