You have a mapping king from me.
Ok is the little brick thingy a part of a puzzle of sorts? Because I don't want to go searching for puzzle pieces if there's no puzzle
where do i put this? can someone help me i dont get.../steamapps/garrysmod/ folder
i initialy had a problem with the skybox but its sweet now great for driving not for planes tho regardles its noice :P
it dosent work for me it is just a construct with a secont floor below
I'm having issues with the map, the skybox has a funny streaking effect...
[QUOTE=Lancelot;13180193]I'm having issues with the map, the skybox has a funny streaking effect...[/QUOTE] You should probably read the rest of the thread.
Ah, ok thanks.
Epic map. I would love some more nodes, because me and my friend tried to fortify the city... Never finished though. Too big for just two people. Anyway, epic map, and a suggestion (Well, more of a request xP) is to have a night version? That'd be pretty fun. Awesome map, Map king'd and can't wait for a version 2, if there is one. Edit... Well, i would map king you if i could. I just gave you a tick instead. x3
Yeah, now that I have a working skybox it's much better. I love the water area, but it could use some lower docks, or what would be even better: a little elevator that could lift boats in and out of the water. My attempts to build one ended in spazzed messes.
This map is beautiful. Good lighting
Very nice i like it! Good work!
I found a gatespawner file for this map at [url]http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=60218[/url] Any news on whether this map will be improved?
This map is beautiful. May I have a vmf. so I can make nodes? I'm not going to upload it anywhere I swear, I just want to actually use the city in my game... and have npcs in it. Jus private chat me with a link or file or whatnot... Please.
So, made... Have you decided what you're gonna do now 223344?
I've already started on improving it for a next version. So far I'm planning 1 or 2 new areas, more city nodes, removal of desert volume effects, and the possibility of a night map and train system. Other minor things will be improved throughout. If you have any further suggestions just say so.
[QUOTE=223344;13269601]...possibility of a night map and train system...[/QUOTE] TRAINS! Yes, please! Train rails are the one thing you need for this map to be truly and honestly complete!
And a runway. Make it so you can fly around the map.
I'm actually happy with the simplistic way you made it. Very artsy and fun. I don't think this needs to be another botmap with trains and monorails and planes and blimps and rivers... well a river would be nice. Instead of a train, I'd like a tunnel that is underground and has like three entrances/exits to the surface... Just flat on the bottom, maybe a kinda of arched tunnel feel or something (though blockier to fit the map, not curvey). Then there would be a button somewhere, like near on exit/entrance that is particulary large compared to the rest, or fancier or something that makes it stand out... maybe a small ticket booth looking thing. This button would raise rails from the floor which used to just be stripes down the tunnel before. I'd LOVE that. That'd be a cool way to let trains or cars go by. I don't think anyone has ever done this either...
See the problem with a button raising the tracks, mindmuncher, is that if somebody doesn't realize there's already a train on them, everybody derails when they're lowered >.>
yeah I thought of that to... I guess you could use the door function "close no matter what". That means even if somethings in the way, it will close. I have no idea what this would do to props though... probably just go through em or something. Edit: or even better, when they are up, the button has an "In use" sign that glows above it. hehe. I've seen the custom signs lemon numbers makes. They are halarious with his map. "CAUTION: this water contains excess amounts of blue"
It looks nice, Downloading now.
I think the map is pretty damn good the way it is now. I just think Nodes in the city would be better and mixing that with night would be even better for those that like zombie attacks or such. Oh, i think someone mentioned it before, but lowering the docks in the water area might be a good idea.
Yeah. I think it's good how it is, but since you made it appear to be in different section another section wouldn't hurt... or even two or three other sections.

If you have any further suggestions just say so.[/QUOTE] Please no fucking train system. Every map is doing train systems now and it is hardly ever used. It also makes the map look like shit. (gm_construct_flatgrass_v4 is the best example) It's just unneeded brushes.
-snip-
Yeah... that's why I suggested the convertable train system. So it could be a subway/underground walkway/ underground road [I]or[/I] a train... I dislike trains but since everyone seems intent on making them ,whatever..
I don't always use trains, but sometimes i'll be in the mood to make one, i pretty much fail at it, but sometimes it's fun.
Yeah, they're useful for RP. I like building ones that use Gcombat.
Any more news?
