    Sure thing. I still have some cleanup to do but once that's done I'll package them all and post them here or in a separate thread.

    Got this done just in the nick of time. I guess this is the rough draft, since the map contains basically no detail as it is. But it was a fun project and worth the crunch. Pics below: Thanks @Roald for making such a cool graybox. And good luck to everyone in the contest!

    For all the natural land features this is definitely the kind of setting I'm trying to emulate. An outlook tower is a great idea btw, thanks! Somehow I was so focused on our FC5 references I completely forgot about Firewatch.

    Anubis Assets

    Hey everyone, Here are all the assets from Anubis + a zoo file. Unfortunately some of the models aren't complete or really useful. I meant to clean everything up a bit before doing this, but I haven't gotten around to it and I figure it's better to just put it up now than keep delaying. Hopefully I find the time to come back and fix some of these up later on. Anyways, here ya go: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ryx5i5ssab1d569/anubis_source.zip?dl=0 Also, please let me know if something in the zoo is missing from the files and I'll upload it asap.
  6. Thanks, I think. I don't really know who you're aiming your frustrations at. This is a community of people that make maps because it's fun, with an extremely slim chance of compensation. If actual pro players would like to volunteer their critique of countless grayboxes that will in most cases never be released, I'd applaud them for it. Maps don't get exposure unless they look good, and only then do they have a chance at receiving the high-level feedback you're talking about.
  7. I had some time left after finishing this blockout for a design test, so I took some time to decorate. I'm still figuring out everything in UE4, but the default fog looks pretty damn good. Here's an actual level shot to justify being in this thread

    Are you using any phong? I think it's a more interesting direction, but the shapes bug me slightly because there are lots of wavy surfaces that aren't supported by the normal map. I would also try using object normal to put a different looking surface on the flat parts + maybe a small bevel? Really nice work, looks like it's all coming together
  9. Yeah I think you should go for a lot more blue ambient light. If you can't get enough from the light_environment maybe use some strong spot lights to fake it.

    Rocks are looking really cool. I would revisit those containers you showed in the 2nd shot though, the shading on the frame and panels looks messy.
  11. Completely agree. His work really blew up in the last year or so and I wonder if he wants to capitalize on that or just continue making great art like he has been doing. At the same time, I'm finding it harder all the time to draw the line between being inspired by and just lifting other people's creative work. If the game does well and Avalanche never made an agreement with Stalenhag, I can imagine there might be some hard feelings.
  12. Felt like this one did not generate a lot of buzz at all. One of Avalanche's three titles this year, I guess they're going for a shotgun strategy of market appeal I'm a little iffy, it seems to draw a lot from Simon Stalenhag work based on this trailer alone.

    First Map de_Elysium

    Great work so far. I'm struggling with a kind of clean environment as well right now, so here's what I'd recommend. Since you are aiming for the ME aesthetic, I would look into how those games bring wear and tear into the environment without defeating the clean and colorful aesthetic. Also, using more tiles will allow you to communicate a material better. You have detail in your normal maps already, but it's important for that detail to have context and structure as well.

    Ah that's a great point. Thanks for the tip
