When you upload a map, do you need to provide the .txt files for the soundscapes and particles?
I would like to know the answer to this question as well.
I wouldn't think so.
Actually you probably would... those are map specific. But they should be packed into the map, not seperate.
More progress pics. I'm trying to mix both swamp and original tf2 styles. Anyone up for some critique?
I don't generally think of swamps as being areas with cliffs, but it's a nice scene anyway.
+1 for being different.
I like this pic the best. Just vary the curvyness of the top of the cliff and add some well-placed foliage and trees there and it will look awesome.
something like this?
Sadly that's pretty much all I can do to curve the cliffs without destroying them completely. Thanks for the advice though.
Seeing these pictures makes me wish i could map right now, currently at a hotel
Step 1: create 128x128x4 brush.
Step 2: clone brush to fill a 2048x2048x4 area.
Step 3: transform all brushes into displacements.
Step 4: set noise to -10/+10
Step 5: sew all displacements
Step 6: subdivide all displacements simultaneously
If Hammer finishes Step 6 before the contest is over, I'll let you know what step 7 is. ::
Seriously though, I've got what I think is a great idea. We'll see what everyone thinks of it when it's done.
Also, if you want a larger jetty, I suggest taking the bridge supports from 2fort and using some of the wood patches from Sawmill after you've reskinned them to better match up.
Ive only looked at a few, lots of good entries. I think mine will stand out a bit from the norm will post pics tommorow.
some screens from my entry
*snip (nevermind, didn't know it was this big already...)*
Edit: For those of you having problems with particles or soundscapes, I suggest you look at http://swamp.tf2maps.net/instructions.php
And... Wait.. what!?!? You don't need to make the map playable?! I was making a CTF map, but it's gonna be scraped if I can do like, only scenery ... Then mine might look a lot better.
Frosty you should read the contest thread before making contest entries lol.
Ok heres my pics.
<3 the fireplace
great one vigilante, awesome use of the haze-sky
damn, forgot about the lillypads :/
i toyed around a bit with entities, the buoy is rotating off-center and the goobubbles pop up randomly, plus a crackling fireplace ^^
detailing contests rock
I decided to go with this:
Hopefully I didn't miss anything. Too bad I didn't think of moving props like eerieone.
