    just had a quick run round - only minor things - the pool water - what did you use because it looks really good :D

    there a couple of areas in the pool i can see through in the corners

    the island with the huts on it in the skybox looked a little flat , i think you could really go overboard with the displacements to make it a cartoony hilly island with huts on stilits of something :d

    the hazard strip around the pool dosent look right - although its hard to tell what direction the room will take when its finished it just looked a little out of place - i think the larger floor tile texture might be an option - as for the pool itself have you thought about sticking some env_bubbles in the pool to give it some life - and maybe some of those drainage holes around the upper inside edges ,

    have to say yet again its coming along really nice
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Used caribbean water from the mod PVKII :D Its like the outside water except different values a bit.

    Hmm, i dont know what the hell is up with that, it wasnt like that before, and i just looked and in hammer it looks fine, but in game its all dark in the corners. Ill have to check that out.

    I originally had very nice displacement islands, and even some cliffs with an arch you go through, but then i realized that displacements cannot move at all, so i had to scrap those, now its just that one island so far, really just a test to see if the entities were working, im going to try to get better looking ones, i guess with brushwork. : /

    Ill try different floors, and maybe take out the hazard strip i guess, ill have to experiment with it. i never even thought about env_bubbles, will try to make those work and look right.

    Thanks for the comments once again. :D

    i had a look through the textures im not sure how they would look but

    tile_ceiling_001a
    floor_tile_007a

    and obviously the tile you already have there for trim.

    one other thought i had for the pool was a small diving board at each end , that would be big enough to enable a scout to double jump straight over the middle, little touches of gameplay like that are a nice touch.
