Untitled Map

For a lack of a better name yes … This is my untitled map. Maybe the reason for not giving it a name is that I am not going to release this as a playable map but instead animate TF2 characters on it. Machinima if you will.

So can I get some feedback please. It would be great. This is my first map.


What is?

Alright so you edited it.

Looks pretty cool. You should get some mountains in the background in the 3D skybox

The 2D mountains or should I make some myself with displacement

2D should be fine

How is this ?

This actually looks pretty damn nice, though I dislike the look of the cornstalks.

Well the thing is that I cant really do anything about it :confused: Its an in-game prop. I would like a big field of either corn or wheat but the corn doesn’t look too good and there isn’t a wheat prop or 2d texture :frowning:

EDIT : If anyone has a better idea on what I should put I’m all ears.



I would use this

So would I, if only someone could make a good looking cornstalk.

Hell, we don’t have enough farm style TF2 maps, if they made one actually made for combat in this style I’d love it.

For now I am going to leave this at its current state. And I’m just going to use FOV to blur it out so its not too harsh when I’m shooting the movie.

Also I might make a battle map with this style, but its a very maybe thing

Looks pretty good so far, I’m liking it.

And for a first map, I’m damn proud. Because most first maps are just, terrible.

Oh and you should start compiling with -staticproppolys -textureshadows and -final

You might look for someone who could model a cornstalk for you, on the first couple layers. Then, as the map gets farther out, use the 2d cornstalks. Other than that, it looks very nice and I would play on it.

For a first map, this is pretty good!

Disable the shadow on the hoist prop on the building.

He should just use -staticproppolys when he compiles, then the shadow would look better, I believe.

And lower the lightmap scale on it a tad.
