Hey, you might recognize me as the guy who entered the mapping contest then suddenly went quiet after consistently working on a map. It came to me one day that I had lost faith in my map and it no longer "felt" like an appealing map to me. I didn't have the energy to keep working on my old map since I realized it had many flaws. After dropping it, I sat down and wondered why it just didn't feel right. After many many months of fiddling around in Hammer, I randomly created something that caught my attention. What I made would become the successor to my old map de_Vice, and and it now goes by the name of...
d e _Y a m a h a
It's still in early early development... But hopefully soon I can release a version in which the public can visit and explore.
I took what was lacking in my contest entry and smacked it into this neat creation:
- Height Difference
- Open space (but not too open)
- Unique Layout (Heavily Influenced by catfood's de_Ruby)
- Quite fun to explore (it's fun to run around the map )
Enough rambling, you're only here to see the screenshots! Here ya go
*** (Only Bombsite A and Mid are built, everything else has yet to be made) ***
Mid to A:
Long A / Bombsite A:
And so that ends the first update of... d e _ Y a m a h a
*Not sure when the full layout will be released, since I put a lot of time into every single spot, so don't expect one within a day or two.
