While I'm not terribly familiar with 'surf_' maps, that scenery looks great (where is that, anyway?) and would probably make for a great 3D skybox scenery; the top and bottom pics would be the best.
We have one idea for (IMO) a great 3D skybox. Any other ideas - since we've been running a few pages of just kicking around ideas, without any headway?
Maybe a Black Mesa/ Combine lab facility, a la black-ops style (set in the middle of NOWHERE... Split between above and below ground, perhaps? (Maybe a small, building cluster above and a larger facility below, or a complex above and a series of labs, below?)
Perhaps a dusk map, that way there's a little 'creepy-factor' on mapload, and keep it consistent throughout, or a daytime above, and a dark, below....
6 of one, 1/2 dozen of the other.
Personally, I like the darker, freakier maps (Great for the AI option, if there was a want/ need to cross-game it to DM).
Or a map built half way up a cliff face, with tunnels and stuff connecting the areas?
Or a map a bit like office, set on the 30th, 31st and 32nd floors of a sky scraper, with fancy decorations (much like the party scene with the Joker in the Dark Knight) and a bombsite on the roof near the helipad?
Or how about one set in an area like that of Half Life 1, with a dam the terrorists are trying to destroy? (Make it look a bit like compound, but with dust textures for the floor and cliffs)
dont use youtube they're either people who cant talk... or 3klikphilip
Well, elevators DO have a certain bit of detraction in source, but maybe smaller 'lifts' that're more like secret passages.
I like the cliff idea AND the island jail idea, too...
Hmm... Maybe a jail on an island that's up a mountain... Kinda like atop an old volcano (the thought I'm going with. That way, we can do the jail, island, cliff, above and below ground and still be able to integrate all the yummy bits!
Going through it all, this would make a pretty killer HL2/ DM map, too... Great Combine compound idea. Have the deeper, underground parts all zombified and stuff!
can i help in something there? an elevator ? im now PRO in elevators...whit doors who goes whit (ive tiped avec in french loool) the elevator...lasers...lol..something else...if i can do something..i can try
