Introduction, Small Mapping, and free assets!

Hey! I’ve been following the S&box community for quite some time but never felt my stuff was quite at the level where it was worth posting, or where creating a thread would be worth it but I want to share some of my work, just some snippets of maps, and would like to gauge interest in asset packs and custom models in general.

Alongside this, I would also be happy to hear about any community projects people are working on that need extra help, finding a project and team to work with would really renew my motivation, and I genuinely love helping and having a creative outlet.

– Most recent WIPs: –

Generic RP / Gas Station + Gas Assets (Click)

Here is a small gas station still a WIP from a small collection of buildings I have been working on with hopes they would be useful to other projects, or for my own maps.

This building in particular was mostly a chance for me to better understand custom model assets, their creation, 3D modelling as a whole, UVs, texturing, and lighting in S2. I just tossed some extremely old WIPs in the background. Building has a main store area, side garage, and an outside access bathroom to give it that sketchy gas station vibe, and hopefully to offer more RP opportunities.

Here is a closeup of the Gas Nozzle asset I made for it to go along with the main pump body. Figured out tint masks, and got the nozzle tintable! :slight_smile:

Working on some custom interior assets, the usual gas station stuff! Fridges, etc. assets in progress still!

Please let me know what you guys think! I’d appreciate suggestions and criticism! I am also hoping to eventually publish this for other’s use, but I don’t think I’m quite there yet. Shoot me a message and we can talk if you’d like to use it in your own map!


Asset Close Ups! Neon!? Free Curbs!? (Click)

Figured I should show in more detail some of my assets, and also release a super small simple sample.

Backlit Letter Signs! Modelled in Blender super quickly, imported, and functional. I find lights and signs really give life to scenes and are a quick and easy addition.
On the other side, also fell in love with just simple backlit textured light box signs. This was from a much older map I was working on! :slight_smile:

Also have an older example for some neon, just a quick screen cap from a fast compile. Features two skins for on and off states. I don’t remember what it says. Probably “Hire Me!” or something. Just a proof of concept lol :stuck_out_tongue:

Next are my favorites, shown in my Gas Station map further up.

Gas Nozzle/Spout! I really love this and how the tinting worked out on it! Also hoping to add skins for different octanes, a little overkill probably but it has been fun to play with :slight_smile:

Gas Pump, for the nozzle to sit in. Not quite as happy with it, the metal texturing turned out a little more flat than I was initially hoping for. The back lit faces though for it turned out okay, and I hope to add skins as well.

**Finally, some free curbs. **

I wasn’t quite happy with the curbs from Alyx, and wanted something a little more modern I could tint red or yellow. So I made these. Its a small asset, but I find it can really change a scene. I also have some other curbs which like, tilt down for wheel chair access or areas where the road may pass over a sidewalk. I haven’t imported them to S2 yet, but plan to if they would be useful to people. If you use them, please let me know so that I know I am on the right track, and if you don’t mind shouting me out in your project somewhere, it would be incredibly appreciated.

I hope that my work is enjoyable to the SB community! :slight_smile: I love mapping, modelling, and coding so if anyone has any projects I could join in on, I would love to discuss! Also would appreciate criticism and suggestions so I can get better at this all!

I would also love to work on model assets or buildings for anyone, like, for free, so if there is something you need, msg me! I have way too much spare time recently. Ideally I’d like to find a s&box community project to join, though.

I have been considering making small asset packs as well, so if you have a theme, some items, or something you’re looking for feel free to drop a message or a reply.

Feel free to shoot me a message on discord or via email to talk about projects, s&box, or if you need any help at all with Source 2. I’m no expert but love to help out.

–Will use this thread for future work as well hopefully, also apologies for the mix of mapping and modelling. The assets here are all really used for mapping, so I figured it fit in this category a bit better. Sorry for the scattered post! Sorry for the clickbait section titles lol

I have a couple mapping projects that I’m working on that you may be interested in joining. Just sent a discord request.

Thanks so much! ^^ :relaxed:

Furniture in general. Not sure what kind of stuff Facepunch has already packed into the game themselves, but anything that would fit into a house would be nice.

Hey sure ! Good call. If there is something in specific or a certain style feel free to PM me. A furniture asset pack is a great idea though in general. Will probably start on something tonight.

– Also just started Helluva today by chance lol.
