    [CS:GO][WIP] Trailerpark

    Updated pics of areas previously pimped, and some more interior work. Trying to make each interior unique without using too many different assets. Skybex has the unenviable task of making lots of interior meshes to try and tell a story. No 3d sky, trees or cubemaps yet, but that should be happening soon.

    Some parts have gone backwards - I have hidden all the "old" assets until they can get replaced with HR ones. The blends are also under construction. The double doors RZL mentioned have not been updated yet, since there have been bigger things to deal with. The interiors now have the base direction - trims will also be added, and a lot of unique things to better identify each interior. Regarding the story, for now, we will be going for the same kind of thing as inferno, with the hiding of missiles in the sites. Hazard stripes will be added to the crates, and some tarp on top of all the barrels to break them up a bit. As always, feedback is appreciated!

    fewseb - nothing is final, just not got any other ideas at to what can be added to the sites. A better story would be good - just can't think of any! RZL - Thanks for the detailed feedback, much appreciated. I will deal with those issues when I next do a pass on that area. Hopefully can get some replacement textures for the storm drain areas. Regarding sending a map - working on trying to get it playable - at the moment, the map currently has every source mappers favourite issue - max_tex_infos, and max_brushes limit. Should be fixed pretty soon though - will let you know! Got a replacement mesh for the old blockout van. A before and after shot. Other stock vehicles also being replaced with rv's and a VW Van.

    Some more updates. The map is at a stage where a few weeks represents a lot of progress, so all feedback on what you see is very welcome! Managed to get Skybex on board to deal with the custom art assets, so you won't be seeing any of my nooby art anymore

    Does this mean that some of the official maps will be removed from the game forever? From a development standpoint, I suppose this would help Valve, since they won't need to maintain and update a lot of the maps that receive such little playtime. Anyone have the playtime's of the official maps?

    Thanks for comments guys. VIOLATION - making things diverse is a challenge. Different colours will come in soon and more variety on the trailers, especially in areas that look too samey. Moved onto a new area, and thought I would show the development shots. Some horrid looking stuff in there! Last screen shows the entrances to the site which comes off the swimming pool screenshot.

    ITT: Post maps/scenes that never saw the light of the day.

    I looked through the old de_highlands thread just to punish myself. I'm like that. The image above shows that more work has been done to it! Below is the most recent image in the original thread. I refuse to believe this map will not see the light of day!

    More images of same areas, though I have done a lot more on other parts as well, and will hopefully post screens of those soon. Winnebago is first pass, and other areas have a better shape now I think. The 3d sky will have a tree line between the mountains to try and look like a forest, and fill in the empty spaces. The older one was a bit too close to the main map. When I work on it again, I will move it back a lot more so that it looks better under scrutiny. Lot of hard edges in the interiors atm, but I will fix those when I get round to the polish stage.

    Really nice theme, and can easily be pulled off within the time frame because of all the bold structures. Stock content could also take the map a long way, and still keep the map looking very different to official maps.

    I have a similar thing in a few places. Black spots on displacements. Some I got rid of by lowering the lightmap scale to 16. Other issues I currently have include some meshes not receiving light very well, especially bush models which look totally flat. I am also unable to launch a map from the console. If I type in "map", as soon as I hit space, CSGO just hangs.

    WD - when more junk, and a bit of grunge on the textures is added, that look will hopefully go away. Some more progress - change of colour on the lighting - I think maybe something between the two light environments might be best. I have set up the area in the last two shots, and I will be working on this section to bring the standard up. I added the campfire there, and will probably detail it with a BBQ, some chairs, beer bottles etc. This will be "long" in the callout. In between the pool and the blue trailer, there will be a camper van for cover. At the moment it is a dev block, but I hid that for screens. No 3d sky here since a change in light and fog has messed that all up for now.
  13. Yeah, all Valve and Blizzard do is tighten up the graphics a little bit!

    This is the last set of screens from this area you will see for a while. I promise! Some parts, like the ground went backwards - I had to change the displacements. Even though three of the buildings are identical (apart from the colour) - I am calling this first pass, and will move onto another area. CT's now spawn on flat ground - previously it was a slope which felt strange. I also got some reference images for a beach tower and a beach hut which I will add for the next pass.

    Thanks for feedback! catfood - with regards to the lighting and colours, for the time being I tried to copy games that have a lot of colour in one area. Example image below. I think if too saturated, things might get a bit crazy! leplubodeslapin - thanks for those images. I played Life Is Strange as well and took images, but was on such low settings, so things looked a bit crap. Will definitely be using them for ideas - got the back of the beach ready to art in last image. I think maybe rocks, trees and foliage instead of whales! The watchtower would also be good to add. Will see what can be done with lighting when the map is more complete. What might look good in one area, might look too saturated in another. Worked more on CT spawn - did a build with trees as well, but they are so dark, I think the only solution to fixing them so they are not almost black is to lighten the texture a lot, and recompile. Turning off shadows etc makes the trees look radioactive.
