    Since I dug up one of my old space-themed maps recently I've started thinking about making custom assets for it (since I'm completely fed up with Valve taking their sweet-ass time with making asteroid (it's probably dead anyway)).

    And then I thought, why not make it into a project. I'm not that good with modelling or texturing, and making a whole pack will take me ages. So here it is.

    I'll be posting concept art and models here, and anyone who wants to pitch in, please do.

    Concept art sheets (I'll be marking colors for elements with hex codes):

    I've got a load of BLU retextures of the RED spacebase textures sat on my hard-drive, I'd be happy to contribute those to the project once they've been polished up a bit.

    Mind if I toss in a name suggestion and when I get home maybe some SFM cover art?

    Edit:
    Name suggestion(s) - (full name in parenthesis)
    Final Frontier (The Final Frontier Pack / Community Update)
    Space Race (The Space Race Pack / Community Update)
    Out of this world (Out of this world Pack / Community Update)
    Apollo 1 (The Apollo 1 Pack / Community Update)

    I cant add pictures to an editable post from file (I think Ive complained about this before) so I'll have to make a new post with the SFM I've made.

    Spytech consoles will be modular - separate base with a bunch of skins for red and blu, and top models with different arrangements of buttons and screens.

    Could this please become a community update, like frontline? of course, thats not an update, but it could become one... Im currently working on an abandoned cape canaveral map that would fit perfectly with this theme... I personally would love this ingame...

    I feel like the animated textures may be a bit too distracting in a gameplay space, try slow them down a load so it isnt so eye catching. Im thinking mainly the bottom right circle thing but all of them could do with it imo.

    Not going to lie, I was kinda expecting a portal "still alive" easter egg to pop up on one of the screens.

    I dont know if you had thought of this, but maybe one of the props you make could be one of those transparent cabinets where a space suit is hanging up in. just to have some nice wall props!

    I agree with this message!:)

    I've grown fond of using moon_wallpanels 1 & 2, pristine tech walls, and black tile and trim to build spacestations.
    I use blendgroundtogravel005, dirtground_canyon4, and rockwalls 006 & 009 to create the Martian landscape. Alternately, you could consider using some jungle props to simulate an other-worldly flora
