    Pretty rough right now. Red and Blu spawn on fishing boats and fight over a central point in a cannery.

    Current Version: Alpha 1A

    Known issues:

    -Cubemaps (I keep getting errors with them and the sky) [Fixed. I was being an idiot.]
    -Not sure I like the layout of mid. Will have to try it with a bunch of people and see how it plays.

    The doorways in screenshot #3 look low, and you'll want to raise the ground up so its sorta (maybe just below level with the interior floor... or add some little ramps to get up there. that looks like a 16hu high bump, and those are noticeable.

    That sounds pretty odd. What's your skybox?

    Same one as Pipeline (tf_sky_night I think). I get errors about it not being able to copy the skybox files when I build the cubemaps.

    For the screenshots I did mat_specular 0 so the glass windows and metal wouldn't look awful too.

    Yea, it's 16hu. Eventually I'll make the ground a displacement and have it ramp up near the doorways.

    The way i make cubemaps works like this:

    1) load map
    2) mat_specular 0
    3) buildcubemaps
    4) disconnect
    5) sv_cheats 1
    6) mat_hdr_level 0
    7) load map
    8) mat_reloadallmaterials
    9) mat_specular 1
    10) mat_hdr_level 2

    And yes... That IS "influenced" by YM :p

    ... anyway... Try it. It should work :D

    that way covers HDR, really, all you need is LDR for alphas.
