    TF2Maps.net Major Mapping Contest #11
    Mercs vs. Aliens

    “No one would have believed that in the middle of the 20th century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themslves about their various concerns they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinized the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.” - H.G Wells, War of the Worlds


    We're still only getting started.

    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but while watching SFM videos, I found this one of a tripod attacking in MVM, titled "Mann vs Martians." I thought Frozen might like to see it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcDk_9PmGq0

    I mostly want to see the finished UFO props if they're really just placeholders!

    It would also be cool to see alien ground vehicles or weapons, or cardboard alien cutouts a la the cow? Suggestions I guess!

    Some of the props i've been working on.
    Alien props:

    These alien props are modular so you can mix and match them to create your own alien creations. there will be a laser gun and cannon. I just need to figure out a design that fits these.

    we'll see what else i can do because right now all i can see is versions of props destroyed or rubble.

    Im open to suggestions too. Keep posting here so i can follow them.

    Download the first batch of the props below
    https://www.sendspace.com/file/kzpd3t

    These are some of the parts that worked on these past few weeks.
    Still can add more based on suggestions.
    The texture is not complete but basic colors.
    Self illum will be added soon.
    Lods also not implemented yet. Let me know which models you want me to do lods for.
    I included samples of what you can do with these alien parts.

    i have some things i could use but since the map will likely not be finished on time there is no point voicing them quite yet

    for a generic request a mothership that associates less with a capture point plate on steroids would be cool

    tho i guess the current one is temporaryish too
