    I've got an old DE_ layout based on Monastery's style (from 2015 or around that time) that I'd like to revive, would it be possible to use the assets from this to help me along the way? Full creator credits and so on included, I'll be (re)modelling my own assets as well.
  2. I was shocked to see them not make it but I do see the judges' point, maybe with Mustang's layout not being that great for sure, but the theme was already explored in Monastery.
  3. The A site looks awesome now, you've got clean design in almost everywhere so far
  4. Hey guys, I'm going to have to throw in the towel and withdraw from the competition. I can't get the map to work ingame properly and it's causing me a lot of grief, I've tried to turn functionally everything into displacements and using wallworm (in a way you'd be using propper) to no avail, it's just too much work. It'll take either 2 months to fix it or 3 months to remodel it all and I've not got enough time to make anything by the deadline. Please accept these screenshots in hammer as something that could have been. https://imgur.com/a/k0C0BHx I wish good luck to everyone else and am looking forward to who comes out the winner and play the maps! Thanks for following the thread
  5. Wow, my favourite right now. Great job on the middle! Although not sure if that graffiti is exactly fitting in a setting like this.
  6. Hey guys, thanks for checking in again. Since the last time I've had major hurdles (not just procrastinating, that's just me by design) with my 17 year old dog passing away, moving to a different place and my car burning to crisp just before Christmas. It's fine though, the map is still coming along and I'll try my best to make it before the deadline. I've cordoned off T-Spawn/A Long of the map in hammer to see how it looks in game, ignore weird props or bad lighting, I've done nothing about it before pressing compile. I also wanted to share this with you before but never got around to it. If you want to see some of the progress in more of a instant update format, here's the link to our Trello. https://trello.com/b/D2MLQfbG/fiorentini It's not updated for anyone except us to keep track of things we need to do and/or fix.

    If you remove one of terrorist's mid entrances, Middle becomes identical to Mirage. And to mention (judging by overview) the sites are heavily favouring Ts, as you need 3 CTs to sort of hold middle at this point (it's the meta in Mirage which is 1 window, connector and B short with other 2 CTs anchoring sites). But I don't know how this plays out, it could be good.
  8. I went back to old radar to overlay the new one/copy the old radar values onto new one.
  9. The fix I've had to do for my map was to redo the radar back the old way (so it's the pre-2016 image overlays) and put the values from that into TAR made one + used photoshop to overlay/fix the TAR one. I've had a frustrating experience with it as that wasn't the only issue and spent a long time trying to solve it so hopefully that helps you.
  10. That's the reason I'm working on my map, after having people playtest it I can confirm this strategy works if you've carefully planned it out beforehand
  11. UE4 is the only thing OP seems to work with according to his youtube channel/website
  12. Yes the combination of trees and skies like that is what I meant and I'll be honest, it doesn't look pretty in that picture. Why not try it first with players and see what they think, maybe it's not that harsh on the eyes in motion?
  13. Orange skies and pink trees? I'm not trying to discourage you from using the same time of day as I am (oh I definitely am trying) but that's got to look weird. Blue sky is overrated but Pink trees aren't common at all.
  14. Map has been released, there already has been a playtest done by Raidboss community and I think it's pretty positive as the map played out exactly how I designed it to. On to more important things, since this is an exotic map competition there are things I wanted to try in this map just for this kind of competition. First thing would technically be the Mid being horizontal between sites instead of like it normally is between spawns, but it's not that important. The main thing I want to show is https://imgur.com/a/w6JcSXb Fire Exit door, it can only open from inside the church, not the other way round. It can only open once per round and only from one direction. If terrorists push up to it for A take, they can not do anything but go underground/mid as an alternate path or to B site instead. Counter terrorists can open it if they're in A and need a surprise for Ts (so could be good for ecos) or need to rotate to B without taking the long path.
  15. After an insane amount of procrastinating (I will look back at this period and reminisce with sorrow because man, this map would be nearly done by now and playtested to near perfection) I've finally gotten round to making the first radar for the map. Does anyone have access to Terri's Auto Radar that supports instances? My map is made out of 20-30 instances so I tried to compile the source code again from the GitHub but it wouldn't work.. I had to do it manually in the end, still pretty good if I keep an alternate version of the map just for the radar. On a side note, I'll be playtesting this map soon with a download in Steam Workshop if anyone cares. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1894082604 (Have to wait until it's approved) Edit: I'm struggling with making the overview match my radar coordinates, it just seems to be shrunken and you can walk out of the spot it shows on the radar
  16. This is what Tuscan should've gone for, love the look even if the skybox looks a bit intense. Kind of fits just right though.
  17. Didn't even notice, you're far too tall to resemble anything like that (which kind of makes me wonder about the fact I've never seen a tall pregnant woman) Before the stream started I expected the showmatch not to turn out as well as it did so was hoping the beginning bit with you would carry it but the both halves came out great, I do wonder if Sal is going to come out with those wallbang values soon or you guys are going to adjust them to a more balanced nature since it's been brought up by HenryG.
  18. You've clearly understood the main issue a map would have if it does take exact layout from real life (and sometimes even simply inspiration) and then just put straight up in to the game but this is just a small thing for us, The main things that people definitely won't be used to is a completely new element that dynamically changes Terrorists' access to A site entrance in Middle and how high every single building is, blocking 80% of the map for long distance grenades but it's exotic map competition after all. TL;DR I've done this layout a half a decade before but never finished it and by luck managed to match it to a real place. I've also carefully thought out how to perfectly rip off Mirage/Overpass' (least and most favourite maps in the game) balancing of one site being completely open and the other tighly locked down.
  19. Didn't want to quite hit the 2 month mark since last "update" so here's a few pics of me testing the scale of the current graybox ingame. Disclaimer: You might end up seeing maybe 5% of entirety of this in the final version. I will also not post a picture of the layout (not that you can't find it in google maps) as I've posted places only where floor already exists on the map.
  20. Seems a bit like Insurgency's push mixed with L4D2 versus, I'd look into maps from there but when I have more time I'd love to look into it myself too
  21. Are any of these models from L4D2? I'd love to use some models from that game but I don't know if they're allowed within the rules
  22. Have you played DE_GWALIOR by FMPONE? I used to play that map a lot when it was in the Operation, it kind of reminds me of yours, albeit with a much smaller layout but you should get some design inspiration from it, if not how vertical it is.
  23. Haven't tried TAR myself so can't help with it unfortunately but I promise to run through this map myself and give thoughts, you've helped too many others with that already.
  24. The bingo chart of my planned locations is almost completely filled out just from this one competition alone. Great choice, hopefully there will be a lot of verticality (my idea of Cappadoccia was more like Grotta Palazese, another entry into this contest)
