Silo V5

Who in the heck thought co-ownership of a missile silo was a good idea?!

Hello. I got Hammer++ recently for fun. I've never done mapping before and I thought I'd just mess around for a bit with the editor to see what it could do. Little did I know that it'd turn into 3 days of my life pretty much being dedicated entirely to this thing. It may not have perfected lighting or the best optimization but for my first map I think it's a pretty good effort.

  1. Blegh

    Apparently any change I make to the map has to be accompanied by a new version number to be accepted as an update by the test server. So, here's V5, the exact same as the last iteration of V4, but alright.
  2. Preempting an exploit

    In testing, I found that someone standing on top of the rocket when it launches could get it stuck. So, I added a little fix for that.
  3. The Rocket Lives!

    Mhm, now it launches whenever someone wins the game. I'd like to make the exhaust kill everyone, but before I can get particles for it that actually feel beefy enough for that to feel justified, I'll hold off. Where is it aimed at? That's a...
