Here is my CSS map High Tide. Im really proud of it, but want some suggestions. it is supposed to be a deserted island and that big tall thing is supposed to be an old lighthouse or lookout. I originally called it High Tide because I made it so the water was a little higher than the land but I changed it because if you jump out of the lighthouse you won't get hurt since you are always landing in water. I think I need to put something right in the middle to cover up that empty space. Suggestions?
Yeah it looks nice. Great lighting. Try placing some of the things closer to the water for more detail in the reflections. For a ram shackle building, it's too block-like. Try having bits sticking out and breaking the bland outline. The ground is very flat, too. A couple of walls and areas of cover would work wonders. Adding a few trees to the hills would help as well.
dont use youtube they're either people who cant talk... or 3klikphilip
I'd also add a 3D skybox, give it a more... Realistic feel, but I agree, Great lighting. And since it's a deserted island, try adding a "models/props_canal/boat001b.mdl" and things of the like. Think rundown, old. Give it the atmosphere of lost and alone. Hope this helps aswell
