Sb_andromeda WIP

Well, Here i am again, making a new spacebuild map.

The names of the planets are



Sulea 6: Asteroid station

It has private build rooms, a bunker, 2 silos, a build platform, water, and a mound so far.
That is teik, the spawn planet.
Those clouds rotate

If you ask me, it’s repetetive

Go into detail? how is it repetetive?
what makes it that way?

The top silo door looks really thin and like it couldn’t support it own weight.

The silo tube (at least that’s what I think it is) could use use a bit more light.

I don’t get the point of the mutable pictures of the keypads.

Also, the long hallway looks really wide and long for no apparent reasion.

That being said, it seems like it has the potential to be a good map.

For the buttons, just have the “Locked” icon have it say “Error” and make the sound instead of having the icons… Pretty sure they do it in HL2.

1
Yeah… i know about that. Just havent taken the time to fix it lol
2
Thanks for that though, ill add lights on the other sides too
3
Its to show if its locked or unlocked
4
Yeah its not really apparent :fuckyou:, but necessary.
Ill try adding more rooms or something.

@ ned.
I don’t get it
explain please?

Urgh, the outdoor screenshots look fullbright. If it is, fix it, if not, pick a nicer lighting arrangement.

I believe the keypad has a “Error” skin where it says “ERROR” on the screen. Make it show this when the door is locked and they use it. (And play some error related sound)

Do that instead of using lock symbols.

The lock symbols are on the inside… to lock or unlock it…
lol
I used the error skin to show that its locked

like I said in the pimpage thread, I was expecting the tv show.

but it looks good. don’t know why people don’t like the clouds, I think they look good.

Meh, looks good, but I prefer spacebuild maps that don’t have giant bases on the spawn.

I like lots and lots but could we have like fort or base on one planet so some guys could attack it and others defend

Probably some other planet will have some kind of fort or base.
2 new planets done, compiling now

looks nice

Try and make as little planets as possible that already have bases on them, the fun of spacebuild is to build your own base.

Any pics of your asteroid field? I cant wrap my head around how to make a good looking one with displacements. Ive seen maps where mappers just used rock models and it looked ugly. Any tips for good looking asteroid displacements?

Asteroid field?
I dont have one…
at least not yet…
you subdivide, then sculpt it to your liking though

make them random shapes dont for gods sake make them all use the same prefab and or model no one likes duplicated scenery

sb_andromeda is coming on well me thinks. aslo i notice you like the 357

Haha not so much… i yust ran out of crossbow ammo :byodood:
