  1. I think this is a fantastic idea; and something Unity sorely needs. I found modeling simple rooms and shapes in Blender a chore, especially when it comes to texturing. Sometimes I don't want to unwrap, and it'd be nice if I could just apply textures to a face like in Hammer, and be able to stretch geometry without the texture stretching with it. Rather than having a custom level file format, wouldn't it be better for the program to output a model in a few common formats? That way, you've got a truely generic and cross-engine level editor basically from the get-go with no implementation necessary. Either that, or you keep the custom level file format, and have an export function that can save the level in one of a handful common model formats.

    Personally, I like the colours, I think they work very well together. I also enjoy the funky pipework. I think this is the most valid point so far, it's the one thing that stood out to me as well. Upon checking out the screens for some time, my mind just couldn't become accustomed to those rocks. Also, because the area is highly developed, it seems odd that there would be natural rock indoors. I must say though, I looked at the screenshots and immediately thought Mirror's Edge. Well done. I've also contemplated stuffing around with that style.
  3. The point is, it wasn't DOF but tilt-shifting. So Hessi was off base to start with. Let's keep this argument going forever XD No, really, I'm just kidding. Pretty cool experiment Psy, I didn't even know you can do that in a game engine. Ignorance would probably be why. Mind you, that technique freaks me out on photos, looks cool though. popcornjake, cool scene, kind of has a Stalker aesthetic / vibe to it.

    I realize this is an old thread, but just had to share my appreciation for ns_hera. That was an awesome map, and by the looks of it, this one is as well. - Ewok
  5. Looks really neat. Nice design. - Ewok

    hessi's tree thread

    You've always been really good at making tree models Hessi. I enjoyed using them Posty's suggestion is really good, it always hate it when placing models that are perfectly flat at the bottom on uneven ground (which most terrain is). A root base is always prefered, can add to detail value too. - Ewok

    Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas Mapcore p33ps and gam0r7. Good to see these forums last another year. Jesus rocks, God bless. - Ewok
  8. Yeah, that's great stuff. I really like the second display pics, very sexy, almost feels like I am at the Drakensburg again. - Ewok
  9. Yeah, about that, sorry Mojo, you made the right choice. I've been pretty pre-occupied with life this year and haven't had the time to to any real moderating. I should've spoke to you or Zaphod about that. Also, I see mapcore has no front page still, if you're keen, I can do the HTML code side of things (frontend, no crazy backend crap), if you want, we can work in cohesion to get something going. - Ewok

    I think the map looks rather impressive, it does have a rather real world feel. The only things that seems to bother me is the fact that the cliffs seem rather low poly and unrealistic. At times it feels like what old maps in Half-Life 1 used to do, make like a wall box effect around maps. Kinda like DaanO said. Keep it up, it's coming on great. - Ewok

    Hello all

    Hey Backslidder, welcome to mapcore. As far as I recall, Illa doesn't really hang around the core very much. Would be a nice addition but hey. - Ewok
  12. Merry Christmas mapcore! It's been cool being around the core for another year. It reminds me of how old some of us are getting :-? Awesome season to celebrate the time Chirst was born as a gift to save the world. (For all the Christians out there). Also, have an awesome New Years as well peeps, I know I will. Later. Godbless, - Ewok
  13. Thanks Klein for clearing that up. Actually saw the diff ones at the shops here today. CE Retail blows abit in comparasion to the Steam GOLD. So next month in Jan when I start my new job I think I'll buy Steam GOLD and the retail box with Gordon on. GOLD better not be a limited offer, doubt it though, as they would want their other ports to go to the public. Meh, time. - Ewok
  14. Wait a sec. I'm confused. I want to buy it soon, but don't know how. I want GOLD because I want everything. But I saw Steam GOLD is the package without the hardcore copy of the game. Which totally sucks. I want the game hard copy and the goodies. I'm thinking of getting Steam GOLD and the retail box with Gordon on it (Is that the collectable?). Just like KFS. Or is there a GOLD package for retail, that has a hard copy of the game and the cool extra goodies? - Ewok
  15. Heh, i've been waiting a long time JonM, for you to show your stuff once more. Since checking your skills on your website a long time ago i've been hoping that you would produce some work for mapcore's viewing pleasure and I must say great job! I like you choice in theme / style, just great. Keep it up. - Ewok
