Overview -


Battlements -



Crossover -



Lift -


V-Ramp -


FR -


Spawns -




Expected future (some day) alterations
  • Include cables for lights To be made in 3dsmax. I have so many ropes that the half-life ropes cause hl2.exe to crash out due to indexing problems (stupid).
  • Include flag directions signs To be made in 3dsmax if people think they would be a good idea.

Notes:
Hope you all like it, critique and suggestions welcome.

Just to show you the cables that I have to remake, here's some pictures of an old version of the map with the half-life cables (keyframe_ropes) included:
1 2 3 4

Peace, Elmo

Let me know the locations that you most experience FPS problems and I'll do my best. Should be able to get a few more fps outside, flagroom and lift. I forgot to make the amendments I had in mind before posting

Just trying it now I've been wondering if I've recently lost some fps again, seemed lower. Probably just me though, I dunno.

Yeah -pF-, 5 of my own textures (I think). I might redo the bump and specular maps for the metal trim and castle wall texture. I think they could still be improved for the final version.

erm.. I honestly kind of feel insulted that you even ask me (dumb I know)... though I'll take it that you're trying to help so thank you.

but yes.. there are multiple horizontal hints that span the level.

Dear Elmo

I like medieval.

I speak for everyone (lol yeah right, like anyone in FF can speak for the whole community) when I say you should tweak it some more. We are happy to give you constructive (lol yeah right, like anyone in FF can give constructive) feedback on any tweaks you may make.

Thank you for your time.

I like the one with security and that gate.

Though I also love being able to fly over the whole damn wall and just nail stuff in the courtyard from up above in that grassy area.

btw I'm not ignoring this! I started writing a reply straight away with the changes I believe required but got a bit stuck on exactly what was required and emailed the reply to myself to finish when not at work. I also have some bases changes to do still which I almost finished off last week.

I would like to do this and I was actually quite pleased to get the messages showing interest.

Also doing some code stuff the last couple of weeks too. Some of you might have seen me around a bit more in pickups as life has settled down now having moved in with my partner a few months back. Just getting to the point now we don't feel the need to spend every waking minute together
