This is my first “real” map upload here on Facepunch. It’s a bit small, and actually a piece of Abstract art, rather then a full map. I still hope you like it, maybe when I get lot’s of great comments, I might finish it up (I want to make a WHOLE palace, this is like 25 % of it)

If it’s not you’re style map, then don’t post any negative comments. I don’t think we want to hear you’re sence of art style. Although Positive, and comments like “Do this and that better, then it will be a good map” are ok.





But please do comment :3

What the fu…

More screenshots please?

I don’t blame you. It is kinda strange.
I think this goes in the “what the hell” catagory.

It WAS going to be a fountain. I now it’s just “something”. That thing in the middle.

I’ve seen stranger stuff, but whatever.

Looking forward to the finished product

When I saw test.bsp, I was dreading yet another noobish, blocky, fullbright mess, but I really like this. It different, very strange and definitely unique. I’d like to see a finished product of it, keep going :slight_smile:

Wow. Very… strange but good. Cannot wait for a finished map.

Thanks for all the positive comments! Well, I think they’re positive, I’ll keep on working on it, and post new screenshots during the progress.


New screenshots (of the work in progress):





Not trying to bumb this, but does anyone know how to make particle water? Like in a fountain?

open up steam, right click and select properties. Click on set launch options, then type “-tools” without the quotes.

Follow this tutorial:http://www.interlopers.net/tutorials/26856

There is another tutorial there, but particle effects make the waterfall look better. Yes, I know the tutorial doesn’t specifically tell you how to make water particle effects, but messing with it for a little while may lead you to create a great waterfall particle effect.

This, but instead all I saw was a random pointless dev textured mess. Also name your thing something unique, it sucks having map names overlap.

I tried to edit the text later on, but I tried it like 5 times.
It didn’t change…


Thanks, I’ll give it a try.

Ok, I know how it works a bit, but I don’t know how to add it ingame, or hammer. Help?


Made Pillars, and a new Download link, to THIS file. Fixed water.

The pillars remind me of Lord of the Rings somehow, and they were HELL to make. I did 3 nerve-wrecking houres for that one pillar… The other 3 didn’t make it, and had to be deleted…

I hope you like it!

Woot 5 downloads :stuck_out_tongue:

Great looking map… but “File not found”


Went grave digging didn’t we?

Looking good. But the dev textures are a bit overused and annoying.
