Turtleey came up with the idea: [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/UoNm7fS.png[/IMG]
And this one. I think the colors and composition match up pretty well. [img]https://i.imgur.com/GuOW3CD.png[/img]

I was told by my marketing team that the previous pretzel was too large for their liking. So I changed it to a smaller, better looking pretzel. [img]http://i.imgur.com/d1xmiKR.png[/img]
Discrete credits room / ventilation shaft: [img_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/oAVjZI1.jpg[/img_thumb] If anyone wants to be credited with a different name, PM me. I guess I can do brackets if someone wants multiple names.

My store, which is cereal smooth
Did my store not make it into the final? I sent it in months ago.
[QUOTE=nomad1;42524506]Did my store not make it into the final? I sent it in months ago.[/QUOTE] Probably got lost in the many transfers between project leaders. Upload it and I'll put it in.

[QUOTE=gman_freeman;42524728]Probably got lost in the many transfers between project leaders. Upload it and I'll put it in.[/QUOTE] Would that be why my name/store isn't there either? If so, [URL="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/85414334/incompetech_store_mall_collab.vmf"]VMF[/URL] & [URL="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/85414334/incompetech_store_mall_collab.bsp"]BSP[/URL]. Everything should be packed into the file. If there's any problems, let me know (via PM, to make sure I see it.) If you need to include the song that plays in my store in the credits, it's called "Local Forecast" (Elevator) by Kevin MacLeod
Do you have a release date in mind? [B]EDIT: I see how it is. My billboard isn't worthy :([/B]

[QUOTE=samiskewl;42526556]Do you have a release date in mind? EDIT: I see how it is. My billboard isn't worthy :([/QUOTE] Release date will be before 2014 ([B]Definitely[/B]). Also billboards haven't been credited yet, but they are being used.

Here's mine if you need the link again [url]http://www.mediafire.com/download/vam3sl3vv3676pb/my_store.rar[/url]
This sounds interesting. I haven't been through the many many pages to see if there are any images but it should be fun to explore the mall when it gets released :) EDIT: Just had a look through the last 5 pages or so and it looks pretty damn badass. The mall looks great; I can't say I'd of done it the same was but that's because everyones mind works differently and its nice to see a product of that. Some of the stores look pretty damn good too e.g. starbucks whereas others look pretty funny. Keep up the good work guys!
My store isn't on the list, can it be added please? Here's the link again: [URL="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32420204/Maps/zaetak.zip"]https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32420204/Maps/zaetak.zip[/URL]
Rejected! Didn't see that one coming
[QUOTE=cardboardtheory;42607495]Rejected! Didn't see that one coming[/QUOTE] Like I said via pm, I'm sorry. But things like nodraw, following the template, keeping the filesize low, and non overly blocky geometry were expectations I had for the submissions. Ideally I would have explained the standard to begin with, but I wasn't the project leader until halfway through the collab.
Not that I want to start a fuss or even argue against the decision, but your paramaters are a bit confusing. ~I admit I could've nodrawed the outside of the map (that was an amateur error), but it wasn't one that isn't easily fixed. ~The template was followed almost exactly, I believe. Besides the little indentation for the trash cans, the map should've fit in the template. ~I'm seriously confused about this one. There were a handful of custom textures used, as well as a handful of custom models (the coffee machine, the chair, the table, the cash register and trash cans from L4D2 which should be shared with other shops). Based on filesize restrictions, it seems odd (not pointing fingers here) that Callinstead's map passed with a mass of beautifully crafted content. Unless of course it came to [t]http://cloud-2.steampowered.com/ugc/828953749290624099/9167C7CDB3AA058465E005A9B7670636B7854297/[/t] ~the aesthetics. Though you described it as blocky, I would characterize it more like flat, which I wanted it to be. However, I admit that my skill ceiling did not allow me to work adequately with the entire "simple minimalist Mirror's Edge theme". Though I did incorporate suggestions made throughout the thread, it appeared to not be enough to conquer both a lack of skill and applicable creativity. And I guess here's the real problem: the overall production quality just changed. Early on it looked like this, [t]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/612754991377252810/389CDCFB1AC80E4A0DC9FDEA712E7D30ABE2BAA5/[/t] Everyone's shop was accepted, regardless of aesthetics or quality. Admittedly some of these were pretty bad, but some of them showed effort. Then extremely good submissions, such as Cereal Smooth and the hobby shop became apparent. And it was these that were eventually chosen in the final mall. The original list (48, not including numerous others lost in changes of power): [CODE]- FunnyStarRunner (DOS Box Outlet Store) - BandClassHAH (restaurant; Big Daddy's Music Store) - Ereunity - nomad1 (Clipp's Classic Cuts) - TurtleeyFP (Business Factory Office Supplies; Kappel's; abandoned store; the mall itself) - Arietta ( medical place ; Banana Milkshake) - gman_freeman (Cereal Smooth.) - podthegod (Crazy Mideon's!) - Garrison (Oleg; arcade) - Natalya (Pizza Pizza) - Agent766 ( Bad Dragon store ) - vexx21322 - EddieLTU (Books; food market) - Sprockethead (Black Factory) - Joey1 - simzboy (Trebled Times Music; 3D skybox store) - l33tkill (Verizon Wireless; GameStop) - Stiveno - Callinstead (Crescent Limited Hobbies) - WitheredGryphon - skern (Uncle Garry's Hand Rolled Soft Pretzels) - mopman999 - Cpt.Hubba (abandoned store) - one free man (The House of Ratings) - Altair_PT - elih595 - ROFLBURGER (furniture store) - .FLAP.JACK.DAN. - yy958 - VIOLATION_SNG - StarmanSuper (The Dump; Krispy Kreme; Mega64 Lounge; BookStore Galore; Fuh-Q BBQ) - NotExactly (50s style diner) - highvoltage - MattTheSpy (Brown's Computers) - cardboardtheory (Zaeta) - slayer20 (toy store) - Bleach Queef (USA Weightlifting) - Spike101 (bank) - Brandy92 (Apple Store) - Tango (gun store) - Sally - clicheusername (bookstore) - imnotmm (bookstore) - Meekal - LiquidSith - maximizer39v2 - Chaotic Lord (IncompeTech) - brett360[/CODE] was cut down to a total of twelve stores. It's conflicting design and interests, to say the least. Though it would have been unrealistic to include so many stores, there was no quality limit in the original collab. Then it became a requirement to reach a certain level of mapping to be in the mall, and that's where most people were cut out. It turned from a reflection of the Facepunch Mapping Section, more into a reflection of the best of the Mapping Section. It's funny though that of the former project leads, none of their maps were chosen to be entered in the mall. I seriously don't know why I wrote so much, whether it's just me being stupidly butthurt about time that I spent wasted, or just a sudden desire to write a psuedo-timeline, I'll never know, haha.
Oh shit. I need to update that list, but I don't know what's in the mall yet.
[QUOTE=cardboardtheory;42616551]-Too long to quote, scroll up-[/QUOTE] That list reflects very poorly on the actual usable content people submitted. Here's the list from when I first got given the project, using bold to indicate downloaded vmfs: [QUOTE]- FunnyStarRunner (DOS Box Outlet Store) - BandClassHAH ([B]restaurant; Big Daddy's Music Store[/B]) - Ereunity (Unknown) - nomad1 (Clipp's Classic Cuts) - TurtleeyFP ([B]Business Factory Office Supplies; Kappel's; abandoned store[/B]) - Arietta ([B]medical place[/B]; Banana Milkshake) - gman_freeman ([B]Cereal Smooth[/B]) - podthegod (Crazy Mideon's!) - Garrison (Oleg; arcade) - Natalya ([B]Pizza Pizza[/B]) - Agent766 (Bad Dragon store) - vexx21322 (Unknown) - alex2the3gr8 (Unknown) - EddieLTU (Books; food market) - Sprockethead (Black Factory) - Joey1 (Unknown) - Rush_Freak (Unknown) - simzboy (Trebled Times Music; 3D skybox store) - l33tkill (Verizon Wireless; [B]GameStop[/B]) - Stiveno (Unknown) - Callinstead (Crescent Limited Hobbies) - WitheredGryphon - skern ([B]Uncle Garry's Hand Rolled Soft Pretzels[/B]) - mopman999 (Unknown) - Cpt.Hubba (abandoned store) - one free man ([B]The House of Ratings[/B]) - Altair_PT (Unknown) - elih595 (Unknown) - ROFLBURGER (furniture store) - .FLAP.JACK.DAN. - yy958 (Unknown) - VIOLATION_SNG - StarmanSuper (The Dump; Krispy Kreme; Mega64 Lounge; [B]BookStore Galore; Fuh-Q BBQ[/B]) - NotExactly (50s style diner) - highvoltage (Unknown) - MattTheSpy ([B]Brown's Computers[/B]) - cardboardtheory (Zaeta) - slayer20 (toy store) - Bleach Queef (USA Weightlifting) - Spike1O1 ([B]bank[/B]) - Brandy92 (Apple Store) - Tango (gun store) - Sally (Unknown) - clicheusername ([B]bookstore[/B]) - imnotmm (bookstore)[/QUOTE] Most of the download links 404'd since being posted, and a majority of the store's were never even started or finished. I sent out PMs shortly after posting the list, but most people either lost interest in the project and didn't respond, or lost their map. This resulted in older stores I got given to by Turtleey not being able to be put in due to missing content. Unfortunately your map came under one of the maps I deemed to be too amateur to go in. More specifically, the quality of the store didn't justify its filesize, and wasn't worth the wasted frames putting in. I think it's completely reasonable to be selective with the maps I put in, doing otherwise would result in a laggy mess. [B]I can't include every submission.[/B] Even still, I don't want this collab to be a "my_first_map.vmf" compilation, I want it to showcase the best of community maps with the limited store slots there are.
Someone should collab all the other submissions into something, or modify the official map to have all the less good shops in it :P
well i've been out of the loop for a while, dunno if there's any point to continue
