I am having the same problem, Boojum is working on fixing it.
Edit: also, this may seem like a dumb question, but just to make sure: Custom content turned official is okay, right? Things like the ambulance in Hoodoo, etc.
I think I might go for this! but i don't have that good of map knowledge to make it beautiful but I shall try.
nice work guys!
Amazing! The models are fantastic and I love the new theme - I can't wait to play with them and work on a possible contest submission!
Yes! This is what I've been waiting all summer for. Great theme, great idea. Count me in!
As someone who lives in a giant swamp, I approve. I also am debating whether or not to incorporate this into my map, given that it's at least partially based upon the drainage canals we have down here.
I have a small question about the contest. If I'm working on a set location with the rest of the 2048x2048 space used to add detail to said location, will it hurt my chances because only a bit of the map is detailed?
I'm working on something and want to make sure.
Great theme by the way, I see myself making maps with it for a long time. Haha.
Hey, how about making a swamp from "Shrek"? I think it would be cool.
Sorry, if someone is already making such map...
Also, I had an idea about VIP gamemode. Civilian-Heavy-Shrek is sitting in the toilet all the setup time. Then wooden gates are open, and the BLU team must go through the forest to another toilet with GREEN Civilian.
You can only see half of it, but, i don't really want loadsa people replicating my idea's. Since loads of people have complained about being stuck.
But hopefully this'll pump a load of inspiration into people who are stuck for idea's.
I just need to fix the odd point_spotlight, a few missing overlays, add in some soundscapes and compile with -staticproppolys.
Wow nice grazr. Didn't realize how big 2048x2048 looked.
I guess since we are all sharing...
Just a teaser, much more swamp behind this.
Here's what I have so far since we're all sharing.
I hope this looks good.
Heh, I do wish we were allowed a 3d skybox, considering that the pack includes skybox models and that a good 3d skybox is a sign of good detailing
This is like arena_sawmill meats L4D2.
Oh man, I hope someone makes a mix of sawmill and swamp fever. I'd be all over that.
So I was "encouraged" by some friends to take part, and since it's a pretty awesome looking theme I'm definitely going to give this a try, don't know if I'll get anything finished but let's hope so.
Here's my stab at the theme so far.
Also I suppose this is my introduction post, so howdy everybody.
Howdy back to you Flonk, and Jinto, and everyone else who has signed up since we posted our swamp pack, great to have you aboart
(love the treehouse flonk!)
Thanks, that's barely half of it. The swamp is to the left, a forest behind the SS and a lake behind the car/hill. There's also a bar inside that building.
P.S. ScreamingGerbil. Try twisting some of your trees around, it screems copy pasta with them all at the same orientation.
Wow, so many similar maps. They all look great, but it's weird not to see a single hazy sky or something here.
I've taken a slightly different direction with my scene:
Yeah, I know, lots of buildings, but what's a map without some buildings, eh? The buildings are mostly finished (they just need more details), but I need to make the bottom a lot more swampy, obviously.
