So, here I am, again, to make you guys facepalm from my noob-ness. My last mapping attempt, Pond, failed. Water works for some people, and for some it does not. So here I am again. I like this go-run-if-lucky-kill-someone approach. But I faced some problems, which I will show you people. IMPORTANT NOTES: One: my good ol' friend Radeon 9600 died, and for now I'm using a prehistoric GeForce2 MX400. Two: This piece of video card can't even load TF2, so I'm doing all the testing in GMod. That said, here we go: 1-The Respawn Room Exit Solution I wanted to do a undergroun respawn room, with the respawn rooms separated by some water into glass (A.K.A. aquarium or fish tank). The problem is: how to get out of it and fight? I thought about and elevator, but some say it's buggy as hell. Stairs? Would be crowded, and since this is a small map (best suited for fast respawn), it would be absurdly uncomfortable to see 8 people trying to see something in some small stairs. Then it came to me: 'hey, an AIR ELEVATOR OMG'. Translating: jump and go up to the battlements. BUT I didn't got what to use, and tried both trigger_push and trigger_wind. No deal. (To clarify: anyone knows dm_overwatch_bounce? That's the idea.) 2-The Fish Tank It was supposed to be a cool feature, but it's not working as planned. I thought it would be cool in this kind of map to see the other team's players rushing to fight, but the textures are odd. AND the water is just plain transparent, and we can barely tell it's water. 3-The decals/overlays Since the capture system in this map is a bit unusual, I decided to put signs to show where you get the flag and where you should take it to. But they show through brushes, and that's plain failure. 4-The... looks I don't know. This map looks like sh*t. I don't know what to do, since it's REALLY small. I need more help in this than anything. It's not even presentable. Here are some pics, you'll see what I mean more easily: And here's the map and the VMF: http://www.4shared.com/file/120181363/f3e044a/ctf_cross.html http://www.4shared.com/file/120181382/e6ba1952/ctf_cross.html Thanks a lot, y'all!
