Ravneholm - a map for TF2 and ReDead

Hello! - It’s been almost a year since I posted any mapping progress here on FacePunch…

Ravneholm (Ravn is Norwgian for Raven, - not a misspell!) is a map that I made over a few weeks.
I used a vmf of one of the Ravenholm maps as a template, so this is based of off Valves map Ravenholm
It is still a work in progress, but I’ll maybe upload it after some bug fixing!

I’ve changed pretty much every texture, brush and entity in the map, and tweaked it for Team Fortress 2 and Gmod.
Yet still it has some resemblance to Valve’s original Ravenholm map, so half the credits goes to Valve.

It was originally a ctf map for Team Fortress 2, and it still is, but I have added enteties for the old gamemode ReDead. (Wich btw, is still working fine in gmod!)

Pictures says a thousand words, so here you go! - And please, give me criticism and tips for improvement!

This first set of pictures is of the daytime (TF2) version of the map

Give the map a try, and tell me what you think!

It’s also a good idea to try it out with the gamemode ReDead!


very nice! I love the daytime version and now i want to play it on TF2 :smiley:

In your third and eighth picture, you might want to fix the grass, it appears as if it was cut into a box shape.

Yes, the grass is screwed up there


But you spelt Ravenholm(e?) wrong.

90% sure he spelled it right.

Ravneholm (Ravn is Norwgian for Raven)
There is no “e” on the end

Wow, great job.

No it’s Rav - en - holm
He spelled it Rav - ne - holm

Geometry and lighting looks great but there’s just something about the textures that seems off. I can’t put my finger on it.


It’s Team Fortress 2 textures


I deliberately “misspelled” it “Ravneholm”

Nicely done!

That looks great.

Thank you! - Who rated your post as dumb?



Word of advice, though, max out your settings when taking a screenshot. Framerate doesn’t matter in a picture.

Yeah, didn’t think of that! But I don’t think it would have made any difference on people’s opinion of the map though…

But hopefully I’ll work up the courage to actually upload something I’ve created… Then you can all try the map for yourselves!
(In the meantime, you could try out a map that my little brother made some time ago for the ReDead gamemode)http://www.garrysmod.org/img/?t=dll&id=63400

Someone dumb most likely.

Yeah. And I sure want constructive criticism rather than dumb ratings in my thread!
