If you add some more architecture, the map will be awesome. oh yes, make the map slightly brighter and use a night skybox too.

Alright, I will of course use a night skybox as I have like, 3 of them, and I personally don’t think that the map is dark.

I think buildings look boring and blocky and lightning looks horrid.
It also needs more props so your map can look more realistic.

But, it is a WIP so just keep working on it and it shall come out pretty.

Yeah, don’t forget, you can always help by making some of those buildings.

god the skybox :byodood:

If you want that sort of help, making some of your buildings I suggest you give the buildings you want separated in vmfs with order to change the interiors, yet I ain’t gonna help you since I don’t need any credit on that.

But as I said, keep working on it.

Yes, I meant helping by giving me the buildings in .vmf format.

Police department done.

That’s a bad spot for a 7-Eleven in my opinion… I’ve never seen a 7-Eleven under an underpass. Plus, it’s blocky, so is the ‘support/stand’ for the bridge. Also, make the 7-Eleven look like this:

This map has some real potential. I think you can “sourcify” (like what the experts did to CS maps) the map if you take the time.

Yeah even though I’m a very amateur mapper I’m still interested in doing this.

Working on freeway bridge.

check the little circle and where it is…

I see it but I’m not able to move it.

Edit:

Wait.

If you’re going to remake it, dear god please don’t ruin it.

Also, could you add onto the map by the freeway? I would like to drive to one part of the town to the other through the bridge.

Also high-ish skybox so we can put flying stuff there, I’d like that.

If you make the map taller and bigger, if it gets used a bit, I will change to this map.

It looks like it needs de-blockification.

I don’t see the circle, look:
