    TBH, it's valid criticism and definitely stuff you should think about as a LD and env artist. Looking at it from the outside, some design decisions that were made on a fast evolving project can seem strange or non-obvious. Things you wouldn't do when working on something yourself or on your own time. Art wise, it may seem that doing a vista takes more time than doing a road, but under gameplay constraints a vista is much much easier because it fully blocks off the gameplay space and solves a lot of potential issues on a game that has characters that can fly or climb up walls. Route66 did actually at some point make more sense layout wise, as the warehouse started out as a tunnel. with another open end at the final point. You can still see this in Nick Carver's concept art here: This was the original end of the map, and I even had a vista blocked out for it, with a road going off into the distance. However, the map had gameplay problems and design felt the player spawn should be behind the capture point, so we changed that part. At this point we were close to the deadline so it wasn't possible to go back and change another part of the map to fix it up. Going back and changing something that is already art-finished is a big cost in game dev, especially if it potentially opens up a bunch of other issues that will then need more play testing. At this point, people already liked the map, and ultimately gameplay comes first so you can only do so much as an artist trying to make things make sense. There's a story like this for pretty much every overwatch map

    I think you figured out yourself why not more attention was spent on making the maps believable layout wise: it's not a critical flaw. So why spend time on it when you are working under a deadline and have plenty of other things to spend creative energy on?

    Black Mesa Source

    Those limit's were set 15 years ago as well, probably no one back then imagined anyone would ever need more than 2048 displacements :D. Thanks for the update! Awesome to see how you guys are pushing the engine!

    Goals for 2018?

    My goal every year: release GIBHARD lol More specific for 2018, gonna take a really deep dive into programming. It's really grown on me as a passion over the years, and I want to get a lot better at it. Thinking about writing my own game engine, and level editor.

    Blender: Square UV map for models?

    Any reason why you want it to be square? Any texture size that is a power of 4 should work in most game engines!

    Source 2!

    yup, models update instantly and textures as well, it's really nice! You can also turn any models into hammer geometry and edit them in hammer.

    some settings will make a big impact for fps, like local reflections and fog. set those to low and everything else to ultra for great visuals + high fps
