    Snow Valley (Beat) - Snow, mountains and trains

    After 3 months of development, hopefully it will have been worth the wait..

    Hey guys, Rissy here. Finally I finished my quite well map (without interior, still) and I can submit it to you! This map were made for Connect 5 contest, you can find some more information here.
    Snowvalley is a King of the Hill gamemod map, wich takes place in the mountain part of Badlands. This map has a trainyard where mercenaries will fight each other to capture it. Map is still in Beta, because I don`t have enough time to finish it, but I hope I will have finished it by april.

    If you found bugs or you wanna help me (somehow) please, contact me in steam.

    Jesus Christ the visuals are good (sorry if your religiously sensitive). Of course the only problem I can find is the missing texture by the cap, but you've probably already found it:

    This Map in my opinion is extremely good, and if your putting it into the connect 5 contest (which I think you were) then it would be in the top 3, because its pretty, not to filled with prop spam, and the cap point the is very interesting, original, and fun.

    Also... What behind here!?!? :\

    Overall, keep it up my dude or dudess.

    Yes, about missing textures. I`ve a lot of other maps installed and it seems to be that I used one of these textures. Next update it will be fixed. And the secret door - yet nothing :D. But then I finish interior maybe I add some kind of easter egg. So I`m so glad that someone liked this map (cause I think it quite weird right now) and I hope it will be better than we have at this moment.

    Some news
    Hey guys, Rissy here. So, I have some good news and some bad news. Bad new is I have problems in school, so I wont be able to make this map. Completely. But nevertheless, I hope it will have done by end of march. And good new is what I give you updated version of my map, wich contains a little interior (of central buildings and tunnel) and also I fixed a several bugs like missing textures.
    So stay tuned!

    Not so for new stuffs. Actually, was made the majority of interior (except for BLU brick building). And the main problem is that something wrong with both of spawns, so they broke map (light become awful and almost no optimization). I tried to hide these bugs as I could. I uploaded non-finished bugged map because it was the deadline of the contest, on with I made this map. I hope to fix all of the stuffs that now don't work properly. But still despite the fact, that even I think this map wouldn`t win any of prize places, I looking forward to see it in the top 3 (yeah, pipe dream). So, that's all of the news.

    Yes, thanks for your reply and moral support. And the "Depo" wasn't a mistake, it's some sort of an idea. It's a kind of dialect, or not English at all. Many other languages have such same word, for instance in Russian "depo" describes train station or warehouse connected with railroad. This has already been used in HL2 beta as a separate Chapter of the game. So I hope I explained clear enough for understanding the meaning.

    Ok, so I know not so constructive criticism is the best, but I gotta say, this map is REALLY well done. I'm so sorry to hear of your troubles at school, and hope everything just takes care of itself.

    @Rissy

    This post is to inform you that this map has been disqualified from the Connect 5 contest for plagiarism of other maps. We had given you the chance to redo the lifted brushwork, but you instead seemed to have just retextured the problem areas? Plagiarism is a big deal in any creative community, and it is no exception here. Small things like staircases or lighting props/ entities are one thing, but when you are taking large buildings and areas to detail areas around your map, you are going too far.


    As a side note, you also appear to have made your entire map inside a big box with tons of space around it, which is a big part of why your optimization has so many issues, as your entire map is rendering from everywhere. I suggest giving this guide a read over.
