Thank-you and sorry for the long post :+

BTW the beach is green because my custom blend textures appear opposite in-game

That’s alot of pics :stuck_out_tongue: Looks like your really far with it but it’s a bit ugly though…maybe it’ll look alot better with lighting, can you show a pic with lighting?

Looks useful but kind of outdated, would prefer in-game screenshots though.

Ill try and get some pics with lighting sorted out.

Yes, get ingame pictures rather than hammer screenshots, and add more detail to the interiors. Some things need to be bordered, like doorways, windows, skirting on the bottom of the walls etc.

It’s so great at some places.
But its bad at others.

Do those windows have frames in the first pic

The maps seems pretty empty, but I guess that is fine since its alpha.

You need better materials and some detail.

Use better/custom textures, default HL2 ones are ugly and overused.

Textures are fuck ugly.

Can’t really comment on anything else as it’s not ingame.

Holy fuck you came prepared with lots of images ;;_;;

On the other hand, it’s not the worst mapping, but some criticism from a few mappers will probably help you.

I suggest getting a custom shiny-yellow colour for the gold bars in the Bank.

The wall textures look really bland, try looking up some good modern textures, layout looks pretty good.
