Snowforest/Brookside B4

  • Site Migration: See bugs? Report them here. Want something changed or have an idea? Suggest it here.
Don't throw out your sobs, maties! I'm still working on a revamped version of snowforest! I've revisioned this terrible map 3 times already. I hope this time I can finally put this map where it belongs.

-added another blu forward spawn after B is captured (it's under the red's first spawn)
-no idea what else i did, so go see for yourself

I don't know why I didn't publish this earlier though. It was already still WIP when I looked at it.

NAV IS BEING WORKED ON, Please hold. *Local Forecast starts playing*

Tons of detail inside RED's building (to make it not like a box)
  • Gate now closes when Payload is near Point C
  • New door - opens when payload is near, doesn't close
  • Both are added to prevent the huge sightline
Detailing on RED's last spawn
Snow Shovels!

RIP the Dev Textures

A2 - B3

"You were son real good, maybe even the best."
- Soldier responding to the dissapearance

We can't bring them back, Valve won't accept it... I played Fallen Soldier while writing this.

A new NIGHT version! Coming soon to your local
Due to some Broken Download issues... please don't let this happen again

- from Skittlez
Here it is!

3D Skybox! Yay! IMO It looks pretty good
Detail (Still should do more, I need ideas)
Dev textures become endangered, must be removed at one point

There you go, the shortest changelog with a VERY big change to the map! It looks so great...

Welcome to...

*This is A4/B1. A4 wasn't actually released because the layout looked good enough to be in beta.

I know i'm terrible at making falling snow from a non-detailed program.
Probably changing my name to Scout Whisky, IDK
You can barely see the middle

CHANGES: (Blu to Red) (Major to Minor)
Optimization! Enjoy the free small FPS Boosts. (Thanks to Muddy for fixing those areaportal leaks.)
Redid wood shack by BLU spawn
Added back route in Red Spawn
-Red door to first closes after first is captured.
Don't you like that shipping dock and dock house/store? I like it.
Added alternate route to Point C after Point B is captured (Thanks to E-Arkham for the Snowycoast Assets for the door textures thing)
Reduced explosion size so you can survive just a bit from the explosion to get in the industrial/water room

Notes not to forget:
Getting to the point where there's i'm only doing detail and bug fixes
Clip the beams in the shack (Fuck I don't want to go through that process of building cubemaps)
Areaportals, KNOW HOW IT LEAKS. I'm crap with areaportals. *My weakest point is optimization.

Special thanks to... If you don't want to read the parentheses I put in

- Muddy for fixing the areaportal leaks
- EArkham for the Snowycoast Assests.
- Mikroscopic for the skybox (sky_arctic_02)
- iiboharz for the Arctic Theme Pack (so that I could unexpectedly find Mikro's skybox)
