  • maybee just shrink the raised area around it or even make it destroyable
  • Nah, leave it! It's fantastic for the architecture of the area. Take your stupid races elsewhere... It's obviously too hard for you to drive around. Races need obstacles like that.
  • I still say make the map so you can fly around between the different areas. Add an expressway that goes over the whole thing. That would pwn.
  • no trains and planes... There are plenty of maps with trains and a plane or flying area wouldn't fit very well with this map.
  • Well also the open flying area means we could have artillery battles! Build forts in the structures and whatnot.
  • He could add a new section that has a higher skybox and two small bases that are on each side of a shallow ditche far away from eachother... maybe a road in between. Nice construct style bases.
  • [QUOTE=MindMuncher;13622231]Nah, leave it! It's fantastic for the architecture of the area. Take your stupid races elsewhere... It's obviously too hard for you to drive around. Races need obstacles like that.[/QUOTE] There is no possibility to race on this map than through the "city". And this monument is quite annoying. And sure, races need obstacles in [u]real life[/u] or games, which are meant for racing. But GMod isn't really meant for racing so the "cars" around the net are horrible to drive.
  • You forget the fact that this is a SANDBOX game, build a car, or model one or whatnot. :D
  • It would be good iff you could blow it up would be epic in NPC battles could be removed for races and left alone by those that like it
  • Here is a high-speed mirror hosted off my site because this map is pretty good and I have lots of bandwidth to spare XD [url]www.infinitywraith.com/facepunch/gm_excess_construct.zip[/url] Please add to main post!
  • Maybe he could make a tunnel cross section that goes under it.. like this: [img]http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/433/monumentjr1.jpg[/img]
  • Depends on your speeds, that could be quite awkward. But i kind of like the idea. Edit, nice drawings, except i did have trouble to understand to begin with.
  • Yeah.. I actually put some effort into the first one but since it got deleted on accident I just scribbled the drawing again... Not like it needed a pretty picture to get it across. And the ramps would obviously be shallow... Very shallow.. Well, no too shallow since it can't over do the roads... But he'll figure it out. That or he'll add another section. This map is all about sections and the next update just needs to add nodes to the city and then it's fine... Just add more sections from there on out. Anyway, he could add another section that is just some tunnels and roads... Racing.
  • mmmm.... Why? It really doesn't need a video. Download it. I guarantee it is worth it, but don't be too dissapointed by the lack of nodes in the town... They are everywhere else... Even though the town is the most needed place. This is all I see wrong with it.
  • How many secrets are in this map so far i have found four *spoilers* i guess [spoilers]In the tunnel to the deser there is a fake wall with a room behind it In the city at the ramps near the newsroom you can crawl through a gap in the mesh revealing a spa and some buttons (the gap has mesh over but you dont colide with it) In the city looking at the front of the city there are three veticle concrete peices on the wall one of theise hides a secret room in the city at the front as you enter turn left near the little pool and the wall there hides another secret room with a weird brick inside [/spoilers] anyone found any more
  • If you go back a few pages, 223344 says how many secrets there are, just not where they are. Edit, Only 5 secrets apparently. You just have one more. Oh yeah, i guess you can use spoiler tags for the secrets, for people that don't wanna know where they are.
  • I LOVE THIS MAP SO MUCH! The architecture is perfect! Every time I try something like this hammer gets errors saying i have too many brushes and stuff, if there will ever be another release to this map I would recomend something epic, making the skybox apear as if the construct styled architecture (like all the buildings and stuff) repeat over the horrizon (it could even be just a simple texture and props or something) so when you fly upwards it looks better rather than the usual gmod map cut-off

Fast? I'm getting 70kb/s out of 200kb/s off that. Mine's alot faster
  • Probably depends what part of the world you're in, and where the mirror is.
  • This map is totally awesome! Make that 1 more download for you. Also, If you let me, I could decompile it and make the rest of the nodes!

  • I don't really think you need to decompile it, he's already making a v2...i hope. xD. Not sure if he's still working on it or not.
  • [QUOTE=stylee32;13719163]Ask before you do decompile, that'll be stealing his work[/QUOTE] only if he distributes it
