    Fully Charged

    Hey. This is probably my first map to this site, but that doesn't mean it's my first map overall.

    This map was basically an answer to my clan needing somewhere to train without having to wait ages for a respawn and then trudge halfway across a map.

    Fully Charged has four arenas, each designed for 1v1 fights, connected by teleports.

    I may add extra arenas at a later date - I can imagine 12 arenas with 1v1 matches in each could work.

    Updates in b2b:
    • Cubemaps added
    • Doors replaced with teleports
    • Fourth arena added

    To be updated:
    • 8 new arenas
    • Completed skybox
    • Full detailing
    • Spectator cameras
    • A system to show how many people are in an arena at any one time

    Looks nice and appears functional, bro. This is a good training map.

    Regarding cubemaps, they build, just use mat_reloadallmaterials, quit, and start the game again.

    From what I can see, these look like interesting spaces for combat - so good work there. :D

    For the cubemaps, you have env_cubemap entities in, right? You can mostly ignore the message about the skybox file, as Penguin said it fixes quick.

    Thanks for the comments and the cubemap fix.
    I deliberately left out putting in the env_cubemaps for the pure reason that I've been getting this error for ages and could never find a fix. I'll reupload a new version of the map with fixed cubemaps tomorrow.
    Any ideas on how to make the skybox decent? It's just a displacement map that slopes up a little bit with some rocks in the background at the moment.
    Thanks :)

    Sadly, I can't help you there. Hell, I can't even really detail for what it's worth...

    Look at my map, and you'll know what I mean...

    Right, i've updated it - i've fixed the cubemap errors, replaced the buggy doors with teleports, and added a fourth arena.

    Lookin pretty sharp for a training map! I will have to show this to my clan leaders and see if they would want to put it on our comp / training server.
