Why dont you post screenies when you later in development? What do you expect from us? We cant exactly give you criticism/ideas and whatnot with those pics...

o_dr.flexyjerkov 02-05-2006 06:34 PM

dont expect any criticism/ideas yet i just done the post now so i can keep updating it as i go through, just like a journal/diary of the progress :)

Theres not exactly much to criticise at the moment anyway lol

o_stab 02-05-2006 06:45 PM

ok fair enough :)

Never played (or even heard of) the original.

This seems a little blocky. Granted you're still early on, just don't leave it that way and you should be fine. Good wide corridors and rooms. Need to see more, pretty much.

[edit] I reread your original post again and saw that you stated that it still looked like tfc and that it's in early development, so I guess this post of kind of moot, but I'm going to leave it anyway

I'm gonna come off as the stickler here and say it before anyone else does (and trust me, I pretty much hate every douchebag that says this, so I'm being pretty hypocritical):

"it looks to much like half life [1]"

The structure isn't bad, for a half-life engine map, but for half-life 2, it seems a bit repetitive and, as the poster above said, a bit blocky. Example: the walls in the ramproom and two flagroom shots are pretty much the same throughout the entire circumference/outline of the room.

That said, for an original map (well I guess it's a remake--but you're the same author from the orginal), it looks to have a good design. Most of the community mappers that are making original maps seem to not really have a concept of integrating both offense and defense respectfully (ie, a mixture of both fairly easy defensive positions while at the same time allowing offense to be able to conc/move around). Although, I would turn the staircases into ramps.

o_dr.flexyjerkov 02-05-2006 10:48 PM

well being only in early development the walls are only a rough outline, so all shapes of the walls ar bound to change for example more curves and as you just stated, ramps instead of stairs, these will all change through the build of the map :). thanks for the advice though, the more the better...

o_kam 02-06-2006 06:55 AM

yeah those ramps are gonna make you slide straight into the wall

fr looks too big/open/hwg&sgrape/concorsuicide

o_nezumi 02-07-2006 08:12 AM

Looks like a map. :o

What's the water in the FR do? It perhaps looks interesting...

o_wlvy 02-07-2006 04:03 PM

The first map was pretty good iirc! Had one of the bests games I've had in TFC on it...

This version : FR looks far to big mate, really huge? Make it smaller. Perhaps look for some newer textures as well..

I wouldn't worry about the "TOO LIKE HL1 LOLZ" comments, the majority of main stream TFC (hl1 engine LOL) maps are amazing, they only really need sprucing up with better textures/lighting and effects.

o_darknight 02-07-2006 04:20 PM

Personally I'd make the stairs near (above) the RR ramps into ramps. Me no likey stairs, especially when they're choke points that are defended at the top by sollies.

o_wunder 02-07-2006 05:22 PM

my only complaint is that the flagroom looks so stylish but the rest doesnt. i love the dark granit circle on the celing and would love to see some of that throughout the map.

o_dr.flexyjerkov 02-08-2006 12:08 AM

Made some changes to the ramp room area from the original, changes can be seen at: images (2,3,4)

In reply to Wunder, the flag room was a first attempt at decorating a room, when the map is finished the whole level will have a similar style to it as shown in the Ramp room in the latest images...

Circuitous 02-08-2006 12:32 AM

Ramproom looks neat, albeit entirely different.

I notice the two holes in the ramproom with caution tape around them, what are those?

o_garland-w 02-08-2006 07:47 AM

from what i remember this doesn't look like the flexibility_l map for tfc, guess it's not a conversion but looking pretty good so far.

edit: ok i read now that it will be different :)

o_fresh 02-08-2006 09:48 AM


for those who cant see very well this a fully fledged fortress map, everything about it to me STINKS of FORTRESS'NESS.

o_dr.flexyjerkov 02-08-2006 10:53 AM

i'm still working on the subject of blockyness
I am still keeping the basic layout of Flexibility but just rearanging the way things are placed in the map, such as the new ramp room design.

The tape markings round the floor of the Ramp room lead to a window linking to the water passage under the floor
the other is just random eye candy once its all finished lol

o_dr.flexyjerkov 02-09-2006 04:46 PM

More images added + First post text updated

o_buckshot enema[x7] 02-09-2006 05:11 PM

There's not enough color variation with the textures. The gray concrete is overpowering. Why not get creative with some different textures? I was having the same problem with one of my maps and I discovered the "stone" textures and it worked wonders for diversifying my maps look.

o_dr.flexyjerkov 02-09-2006 05:13 PM

not to worried about the textures at the moment, as they will all change once the fortress-forever textures are released.
