    This is my first map I've ever made and its still got a looooong ways to go, but I figured I'd share some pics of how the first section is looking so far and see what people think. (I've posted a couple screenshots long ago that are now very very out of date).

    3 things to note:

    #1 I have not set up cubemaps yet so there is a lot of floors that are pink/black checker board

    #2 I have to give an immense amount of thanks to ABS for his libraries and such, without them to help ease me into learning lighting/props/triggers/ect I probably would have gotten over my head very quickly and given up, using his libraries I'm able to ease into each thing by editing premade stuff to my liking, and learning what each thing does by trial and error and thus eventually creating my own stuff from scratch. I also need to thank Youme for his AWESOME displacement tutorial that greatly helped me.

    #3 this is the first part of what will be a 3 part payload map and I have settled on the name of: pl_weather with the full displayed name being 'Weather Manipulating Device Station' (WMDS ;P).

    Feel free to give suggestions or tell me how bad it is and I should hang myself with a short rope from a tall tree, I'm just happy I can make more than an empty box lol.

    Looks really nice so far man. Which tutorial did you use for displacements? I've got cavern walls I need to work on pretty soon and I've done no displacement work yet. :eek:hmy: But judging on how well you've done I'll pick it up fast probably. :)

    Definitely liked the first picture.

    thanks, btw I used this tutorial (which I'm STILL surprised hasn't been stickied)

    Also I uploaded a few more pics that originally I wasn't going to put up but decided to go ahead. The big rock formation you see on the 2nd picture of the first gallery is entirely made from displacements and was my first time learning how to make them. It was a ton of work lol.
