    It's not the final name, it maybe will be but is not sure. The map is a cp_dustbowl-like so you have 3 stages with 2 cp each one. The name says it all, it will be a pirate island, RED now attacks (pirates), and BLUE defense (marine).

    It's a dettailed map and realistic map but with a little bit of fun, so you will find spytech inside the ships, and more things on the island. Hope you like it. I've been working on thismap for the last 5 days, so I've only done the RED first spawn and a little bit of the first part of the map.

    Looks pretty good, i love the water color, nice carribean blue :D, you also need a 3d skybox to make it look better but keep up the good work.

    The water texture is from the MOD Pirate Vikings and Knights II, so all credit goes to them. And yes, I've just thought about the optimization and ading new stuff, so I'll finish the ship and then I'll decide about it.

    Good idea. Much less of a performance hit, but would it look good? :huh:

    I'm learning to model for creating this map, and that's my first model. A pirate cannon TF2 style. Need some ideas for making the base of the cannon.

    Hmm the shape is good, but it almost feels like the cannonball shaft should be wider, to keep with the goofy/clean that TF2 is.

    Water cannot be tilted. Has to be placed on a brush with a perfectly horizontal face.

    I can't give it to you because is not mine, is from the mod Pirate Vikings and Knights II. You can download the mod or wait some days (maybe hours) and I'll ask them some things (one of them is the water).

    Hello, I have problems with this banana tree. It's made of 1 cylinder and 6 planes. When compiling it gives me this error. it compiles, but model is crashed on hammer and it's not showed ingame.

    Code:
    WARNING: Model has 2-dimensional geometry (less than 0.500 inches thick on any axis)!!!
    WARNING: Model has 2-dimensional geometry (less than 0.500 inches thick on any axis)!!!
    WARNING: Error with convex elements of bananatree.smd, building single convex!!!!
    Model has 8 convex sub-parts
    Here's the pic of the model and the info. Please help me to fix it.

    Think you need to make the leaves thicker. But I'm no expert in modeling, just getting that from the error.
