The Facepunch "Yap and Blabber" Chat Thread

also the entire thing looks dynamically lit, which is awesome because model shading in source has always been not very good

Maybe Valve is unlocking the projectedtexture limit /optimistic

well even if they limited it into 1 sun light I would be happy

also ratatat is pretty awesome while mapping imo

brb stealing a steamBox at GDC.
oh and CS:GO too.

I got my elevator to work!


nab one for me too while you’re at it please? :v:

Don’t befreind aspen then…it used to be a new dubstep or garage link every few mins.

Distractions and brain rotting all in one.

Boots up sdk and finds some nickleback for the day.

I’ll map to quite active music, and make my game to some more sombre stuff, so i can do some meditation to bring models forth…


I map to what works…i got a real variety of music. I got some evenescance/nightwish, paradise lost for when i need to listen to some really dark music, let loose and alan parsons for laid back music, shinedown and alter bridge are reserved for destroying mappers blocks. This week Nickelback seems to be working well.

*just switched to presidents of the usa…i need some mental tunes.

Anything that doesn’t* pre-date '99 isn’t going to get a listen by me, I’m afraid. I suppose it’s just a matter of taste.

Edit: Forgot a word.

Interesting really, seeing as i have stuff from the 1940’s and 50’s. I listen to what i like, i don’t listen to a specific class of music, or from a specific time period.

For me, this is quite an inspirational song:

But so is this:


But then again, most people are probably classed as sane compared to presidents.

Errrr, Nickelback date to 1995.

Just thought I’d say, anyway I usually find myself listening to Pink Floyd, Eminem, System of a Down, Slipknot, The Cranberries, Fallout 3 Music, Dido, Alanis Morissette. So quite a mixed music group.

I don’t have any special mapping music, I just listen to what I listen while doing anything else, so basically 70’s / 80’s rock/pop.

But I have to listen to something while mapping. Mapping without music is just impossible :v:

Looking for good classic rock look no further.

Then again almost all classic rock is good.

Ok, I heard talk of a teamspeak server, then it petered out… I’d personally love the idea of a mappers’ TS server, just chillin’ and mappin’ and such…

But yeah, map for 2 days straight hen nothing for 2-4 months at a time.

Fucking TINY EXPLOSIONS! love that song and almost all of their other songs! Presidents of the US of A, love it…

(I just wanted to be included, I saw so many talking topics and had to chime in on them all…)

Fuck yeah Ratatat!

Also The Black Keys.

I’ve done nothing productive all day…yay.

If anybody was interested in a TS server I have chucked one up to see how it goes, it will be on 24/7.

Fucking goddamnit, need to set our external IP statically.

I was going to, then i started talking to deadchicken, and it all went downhill.

Hurray for sphinxa! I shall be on in a lil while!
