    Looking good!
    The outside of the spawn is not very detailed, though - you should work there.
    I really like what you did to the building outside the BLU spawn!
    But it's a bit day - ish for a sawmill themed map.
    Good luck!

    Edit: Nice music in the video!

    Thank you Kiwi!

    Some new pics. Added a bit more detail and changed the wood texture to metal.

    The pink lighting is silly especially with a skybox that is all grey with no sun

    glad you finally opened a thread. bit generic in places, but it's just a start in the end, isn't it. the pink lighting (and not fitting skybox) does indeed pull the atmosphere down a bit, though. gonna be interesting to see some more work into that !

    Looking good. I like the lighting and the skybox, but not both together.

    I like the pink lighting alot, but you need to change the skbox to more of a sunset/sunrise in order for the lighting to fit...
    Anyways, keep up the good work!

    Thank you. I had in mind to make my own skybox, a sort of sunset cloudy sky.

    I've done a bit of work on the displacements, and changed the colors of the blue base.
    Which one looks better?

    And these shots show the displacements and the changes I've done on red side.

    I'd say the 2nd style for the roofs is better, but I prefer the displacements of the 1st screenshot.

    It blocks the horizon better without being a vertical wall (like arena_watchtower). It just slopes up around behind the building and has a large rock covering the border between map and sky.

    But those were the default displacements. Anyway I think the problem is the big rock. I'll try to replace it with something that makes the world feel more open

    Yeah, it's probably the big rock. Or at least, partly.

    Here's my complete fail at custom skyboxes
    [​IMG]
    I really need directions about the skybox

    And here's how I blocked out the exit.

    The only think I don't like is the giant blue arrow. It's not actually pointing in a useful direction.
