When I read this thread instantly the Clocktown music jumped into my head and now I can’t get it out. Anyways, the map looks nice. After this will you possibly work on any other maps from Majora’s Mask?

@matt000024, Not to go off-topic but yes:


Oh gosh the water temple :3

Map looks great by the way.

(mind enlightening me how you are porting this from majora’s mask?)

Sure. =)

First I followed the guide that Fluxmage posted in his topic, http://www.facepunch.com/threads/681537.

But it was giving us mixed results. After talking to him he recommended turning the exported mesh into a wireframe textured model for source.(Which was then built over.)

Here’s an example of building over a Wireframe model.


Amazing. Words can’t describe.

Hey, how do you get the models and textures from the original game?

Anyway, great job OP.

Cannot wait for this.

now where the fuck is my cartridge


Nostalgia has hit me with total power!

Awesome map!

Amazing. Simply amazing.


This is like really cool and I def will be using it. You are doing exactly what I’ve been wanting to do for years…


Am I correct in assuming, going by how the pictures are at night, that you’ve fixed the day/night cycle? I hope I am, the day/night cycle is really the best part of Flux’s old map, but he could never get it to function properly. :S

Looks really fucking great though, don’t know why ported maps seem to be the best to me in TF2, maybe it’s just the nostalgia. Still really love ported maps though, like those done by 8bitsandwich. Continue the great work and hopefully do more ported maps in the future!

Also, is one able to get into the houses in town? That’d be really cozy.

And sorry for the constant edits, but is the map REALLY that big and is all one map? I can’t into hammer, but from the talk I’ve heard from mappers is that its very restrictive in its map size limits, but yet that looks fuck huge.

trade_clocktown_b1 is the main map of my server, so i really appreciate it.

But I got an ask: What’s about the Engineer-Teleporter? Does they work on Beta 2?
If you use them on B1, the exit-teleporter will be destroyed (It works only correct, if the exit is placed in the Skybox).

We were having an issue with HDR (which is supposed to make the map brighter) so most of the screenshots in the op were taken without it, the day night cycle was always in the map but it was never enabled because of issues with color correction, we’ll probably turn it back on though.

We were hoping to get most of the interiors in the town into the map on b3, but the map is coming close to some of the hammer limits so we’ll have to see how it works out. They can’t be entered in b2.

Some of the models in the map were messing with the exits, it’s been fixed now though so teleporters will work on b2.

We were also thinking about also adding adding health to the field.
If you guys want health packs in the field please post some locations in which they should be placed. If not we can always leave them out to be more consistent with the actual game.
Anyone have any ideas?

I say leave them out so it’ll have more of a Majora’s Mask feel to it.
