    Hello fellow level designers! I like the new forum-look. 😁👍

    I made a video on how I helped design a level for the UE4 game Deliver Us the Moon, what the process was like and what I would do differently now a couple years later. I also fall into other tangents about level design that might hopefully be interesting. If that sounds like something fun, I always appreciate people watching, discussing or giving feedback:

    Hope you enjoy! 😊

    Oops, I meant selection wheel, not color wheel 😀. And no, I'm talking about the new buy menu.
    I'm making my own shooter game and, because I don't like clicking on buttons, I made a wheel interface (with sub-wheels) for the dev tools, and I think it's a pretty good replacement for menu bars and dropdown menus.
    In terms of the editor, I hope the new one has a better asset importing pipeline. Importing textures and models was such a chore in Hammer even with the community-made tools.

    This is a original 5 control point Payload map that I created for the summer. Few months ago Valve asked for maps and everyone like me decided to deliver. So heres my entry!

    I like to share progress after playtests (helpful for documentation for portfolio having all versions of the map in one place) and when I do some bigger art pass on the map.

    After a long, disappointing break, I am back to mapping again.
    Vandal is going through its texture stage, and is edging closer to the finish line, below are some screenshots of some recent work.





    Oh yeah, hope everybody has a great weekend!

    I actually found the Eagle One playlist accidentally myself recently.
    I don’t have Alyx, but I started watching the vids anyway to get an understanding of the new principles. Very good series!

    eagle one have a bunch of tutorial videos now

    source2 is still very new so I'm sure more will be learnt as time goes on but it's exciting to finally be getting into something 'new'!

    I don't know what you're talking about Austria was already a really good map. Have one of my personal 1vX highlights on that, and was working great in DM too.
    There are people that didn't get their map officially in CSGO that have a job in the industry, so I hope you can give it another try @Radix. I don't know what you have already done, but there are other editors that don't require as much building time as Source. Big studios don't even require you to have all the knowledge you have in the env art side either, and there's plenty of indie titles that don't have people with your skills behind.
    But, if this has to be the swan song, then what a tune this looks like! 👏

    One of the projects I worked on after I made de_austria.
    Yeah, I know the timing is really bad (CS2!), but can't change it... 🙁
    In general a lot went wrong during this project. Had a lot of problems with the layout, but I think I found a good compromise in the end. Also learned many new things. Maybe I would even be ready to create a really good map now after all, but I think that it's gonna be the final one. I really like making maps, but it has become too time consuming over the years for just being a hobby. Unfortunately I never managed to get a job in the games industry. So that's it. I hope it's a worthy ending of 20 years of making maps for me. 🙂
    Shore is a bomb defusal map for CS:GO that takes place on Lofoten Islands, Norway. (Also have a Hostage version of this that works well imo)

    I took some inspiration from this place in Norway:
