Let me first start by introducing myself, I am bluey, and this will have been my first source map when finished. I started mapping back when hammer (World craft as it was known) was making it’s way to the public, after the release of the original HL1. However, I soon became frustrated (due to my young age) and gave up all together. I have decided to return to the world of mapping as an exercise while I persue my masters in Architecture at my University.
So, without any further pesky introductions, I give you my work in progress. This is what has come from several hours of loving labor:
I’ve drawn my inspiration from my sketchbook and fond memories of black mesa (as one may surmise).
Ahh the generator room, shaping up to be my favorite.
The hallways arn’t perfectly identicle, one is an airlock while the other is for transportation.
Obvieously because this is a work in progress, these rooms arn’t polished off. However, I have made an effort to optimize for FPS as I go along. This map compiled in around 30 seconds (yay me). I hope everything continues to go this smoothly.
Please leave comments, I’m interested in getting feedback from the community.
