Drift - Drift among the seas with a dev-textured map.

Introducing the all-new brand new map that has been scraped, scrapped, revised, imagined, and rethought, pl_drift_a1!

With some twists and turns, i've tried my best to not scrap this map, rather than some other maps... heh. 2nd point to 3rd is nice in my opinion. Map is possible to be underscaled. Also scheduled to add a word before "drift." This map takes place in a.... hmmm. I don't really know. Factory? Industrial log storage service? Who knows? Anyway, enjoy!

Some useless notes:
  • Final A1 took many minutes to complete, too many minor bugs I keep forgetting to add/change/remove
  • Jumping from 2nd point to 4th wasn't intentional until I found it out
  • I listened only to Modest Mouse the entire time I was making this, so expect some mouses peeking out in future updates
  • Somehow the top gradient on the site gives me major nostalgia feelings
  • I put lotsa effort and time.


Half a Lambert is better than one.

It's generally a good idea to not waste compile time including HDR in the first place, for the same reason people usually use dev textures. But also because of this.

Useless Notes
