RP_SyncCity_a1 (WIP)

Setting:

The year is 2005, the once thriving city is now slum. Crime has taken control of the city, but the countryside is yet to be damaged. No one knows when the wave of crime will strike the countryside, but it will be soon. It can already be seen as some petty crimes are taking place. The city will grow, but it will grow into an evil criminal machine.

About the map:

The map is for a small community that was setup by a couple of people wanting to make a new RP gamemode. Unfortunatly the community was threatened and had to shut down, I thought that was the end to my map as I did not want to release it publicly. Now there is a new community in which the old members are joining and the gamemode is still happening. If you want to join, help with the map, find out more about the community visit the website: http://sync-gaming.net/portal.php

I wanted the map to be a community project, something that when played someone could say “I made that… I made this… I helped to make that…” and they would feel good about having their work in a final map.

What the map contains (So far) :
At the moment the map is small, I have only been working on it for about a month, but here is what is in it.

Spawn Building
Slum Shop
Slum Bar
Apartments
Delivery Depot
Shopping Mall

FYI Nothing is in the right place, I bundled it all in one map so that me and a friend could test it. EDIT - This means the lighting is not its best, it was a fast compile. This is NOT the final release nor is it anywhere close to being the final thing.

EDIT - Pictures added

Please leave some comments for what i can add to the map, please visit the website we are looking for some new players seeing as we are very small, and please contact me if you want to make something for the map.

Thank you

Sounds Great :DD Looking forward to the shopping mall !

Pictures please, also, what was the community threatened by?

There was some 10 year old thinking he was cool, threatening to DDoS the owners if he didnt become the new owner. So one of the owners shut down the website, and the community died.

Perhaps you should of waited until you did to create the thread. So there actually might have been something to talk about, instead of brainstorming.

I have put pictures up now

Lighting looks incredibly bland.

Thats because its a fast compile, I did say it was for testing, plus its not the final thing (clearly) so there would be no point for a full HDR compile.

Crappy lighting, A bit blocky and looks very boring.

try adding details to make it look less blocky. it’s a decent start.
also, light_spot is your friend

Never, ever say this. Do the full compile or don’t release it.

This isnt a release, its a test, how many times do I have to say this. I just wanted feedback from a wider community, thanks to those people giving me some feedback, I will start on some better lighting and more detail.
