Let's make a map, SolidSurf!
« on: June 04, 2016, 02:59:30 AM »
Okay, so we're doing surf_barnyard. It should have a similar feel to the LEGENDARY surf_fruits, and stuff.......

As of now, there's really no date of finish, but as limits fill up, I'll set a date with at least a two week warning.

We're looking for tier 1 - 3 stages that are no more than 15 seconds. Neither Phurix nor I will be detailing stages. Detailing is up to you, and I'm not going to spam shitty decals around your stage, you can do that yourself if you please. Your stage shouldn't exceed 10%, and if it does, model some shit.

As for skybox, we'll be using the lovely mpa115 (http://gamebanana.com/textures/2381), the light_environment will be http://puu.sh/pg3cb/f3fd4321ec.png with a brightness of 255/255/255/200. The light environment may undergo tweaks, but it won't be a huge difference from what it is now. You should be using TF2 textures as much as possible to help create that barn feel. TF2 wood is great for this theme, use it! Please leave room for a NEXT/END sign, and use cs_italy/black for the endings of your stage (of course, as per tradition).

These are in no particular order, and we'll order them in terms of difficulty as they get made. You can choose an animal commonly found on a farm/barnyard, there's at least 20, and I don't mind if you choose an alternate gender of the same animal (eg, goat & ram). First come, first serve.

Spawn Room - Juxtapo; Incomplete.
Cow - Mr. Cow; Incomplete.
Mouse - Syncronyze; Incomplete.
Duck - Phurix; Incomplete.
Cat - Doink Face; Incomplete.
Dog - Juxtapo; Incomplete.
Chicken - Arblarg; Incomplete.
Pig - iamsupaman; Incomplete.

You can contact Phurix or me at any point for any questions, but we're not going to be mapping your stage for you, or holding your hand. Juxtapo has agreed to let us use his test server, so we'll be testing stages there. (This means when you think you have a completed stage, or want to receive feedback on it, make sure you come to Juxtapo, Phurix or me with your paked BSP!)

Once deemed good enough by yourself and us, Phurix and I will be doing only minor tweaks to your stage. This means you must submit your best and optimized work! There is zero excuse for  sloppy, off center, off grid and lack of optimization within your stage!

Good luck and I hope to see your stages soon!  \

This can't ever even hope of coming close to fruits. If it's not made by our lord and savior wirelezz it's objectively shit. Nice try though.

Then in that case I choose this animal!



Can we have space in a 3D skybox too?

I don't see why not, as long as it's not ridiculous and you stay within the limits.
