Hello again hl2w Board.

Made a little 1v1 community map for the mod :mrgreen:


i wish to post this here a bit early so you guys can tell me what you think :D
of it so far. As far as i noticed (Playing with a bot) there aren't any bugs just some nav issues.
But its well playable. (FIXED NOW FULLY PLAYABLE)

So please check it out and tell me what you think of it in general
(Dont complain about nav i know it needs some tweaking :) just a little. ) (NAV FULLY FIXED)

Also didn't get much help on anything from the community sadface :(

Anyway enjoy and tell me what you think so far! :)
I will continue it till its "100%"
BUT i will need feedback!

FEATURES:
- Enterable Buildings
- Large spawn area
- Woods (That you can hide in)
- Cover spots
- 5 Control points
- Correct NavMesh (so you can play against CPU and your units can navigate correctly)
- Tactical sniper spots (gonna be Made better in update 1.3)
- Random Crate locations
- Day and night cycle's (Next update 1.3) NOT POSSIBRU
- MiniMAP

EDIT: Made the map better, added: 28 Jan, 2013

- Fixed "ALL" THE NAVMESH problems i found! (AI navigation)
- Removed wooden fences
- Added stone walls (Instead of wooden fences)
- Added decals (ALOT!)
- cube-maps
- Added little shack with little graveyard (For scenery mostly, it has automatic cover spots so should you get close
the unit will automatically get in position behind the fence! )
- CPU player now plays normally (Builds more stuff etc etc..)
- Made the Factory/storage Lighter
- Added Crate spawn locations ( 1 per player)

EDIT: 12 mar 2013* V1.3

- Notice

Hi,

i think it's too dark, overall lightning needs some work. But I like the enterable buildings.

Also i quickly made a basic minimap. ^^

Hey thank you very much! Had so much troubles with that minimap :D
Also thank you for the tip, though the game it self got a field of view, so it makes it darker automatically i think.
i'll try something :)


EDIT: Updated the map

looks nice, I like the darkness, it really gives the map a nice atmosphere. you do need to place some npc clips in the fences next to the road as my units are trying to navigate through them.
the map looks promising so far, keep it up.:)

Some bugs:
  • The roof sometimes does not disappear.
  • Your "func_map_boundary" seams to be wrong, it looks very strange on the minimap.

The roof sometimes does not disappear, you can't look inside. Why you can't look inside, I dont know.

Yeah, Good start for your level keep it up if you want you can always open my older maps for hl2 wars and take a look at how they where made. there not really the best maps out there but there open source :).

Here are screens of some lighting i did in the past, though it's pretty still pretty bad.

there are plenty of useful lighting tricks you can use to make lighting look interesting but you got a very interesting map, so far. Keep up the good work.

I would love to see some of those maps, if you could upload some of them anywhere that would be so sweet! :mrgreen:
Lighting has always been my weak side, so if you got any map that's got A huge amount of lights, please share your knowledge 8)

my older maps are pretty dated (2008), i have been mostly lurking around here every so often. I mostly develop levels for other games now. I still occasionally mess with valve hammer editor when it allows me. it tends to crash a lot compared to unreal and crysis level editors after using the forums search button here is all the maps, i developed in a very short time. (usually 1-2 months per map)

wmp_descent (Sep 20, 2008)
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=305

wmp_2shore *oct 13, 2008, 10:35 am* Final!
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=446

after reading the topics and yes, i was working on at max 6-7 levels at once, most of them where just concept idea's that ether did not work out or gather enough interest to go into full production and here are a few unreleased concept maps.

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=545

the rest are on my hard drive still (at least i think).
