VIOLATION

[WIP] de_monaco

Recommended Posts

It looks nice and all, but don't you normally want to test it before it gets to this level of detail?

I honestly do agree with that approach entirely and wish I had used it in hindsight, getting a rough layout out and all that before doing anything else but the scene itself had started just from attempting to recreate a reference photo and over that period of time I was inspired again to create a defuse map around that theme, preferably building off of what already exists.

Monaco is a pretty modern and clean city. There's lots of big roads everywhere and lots of elevation, it's weird.

I would get rid of these barrels and rock walls, it doesn't fit the them IMHO.

It's actually a really nice theme, lots of potential! Both in layout and visuals.

It looks pretty nice so far. Would love to see this turn into a fully functional csgo map :) I do agree with some of the points @Klems brought up, about the rocks and the barrels.

Don't be encouraged by the "wrong" approach you used until now. While certainly not ideal, it doesn't mean this couldn't turn into something good!

Can you post an overview?

It's been a while and even though I've done some tweaks and messing around I'm still at a total loss for layout design. Here's basically what I'm working with right now

here's a view of what's playable currently (red):

the area in the upper right is a rough idea of what I wanted one of the bomb sites to look like and has been moved around a few times, currently resting in a pretty poor position imo.

 

Any suggestions would be really appreciated (?)

Friendly advice, don't try to do what you're doing.

Go back, do a true greybox, get a complete layout down. THEN apply some of the cool art you're working on. Do not try to fasten a layout onto a piece of artwork, it's just asking for trouble. Plus, by the time you go back, you'll have more practice with art and do better art.

I think most of us are doing that mistake because of the lack of feedback we usually have before we start detailing.  Texturing a bit can help gathering feedback and detailing even more. I think your advice is great, I try to restrain myself as much, but the greybox stage is sometimes hard to progress in because of that  :) I think that's why he did that.

Worked out a rough layout just with some bot playtesting over the past few days. Hoping to get a lot more on that done and get it tested it out on the server at some point.

Do you have any circuit in it currently? I would love to see at least a little, maybe a spawn could be a section.

That's so cool :D

Kinda hard to tell from the overview you posted yesterday, but are you taking the map back to a (more or less) greybox phase?

Is there a playable version available somewhere?

I've essentially started from scratch keeping only the theme/basic visuals in regards to layout and have been working on making a proper greybox with some basic detailing to set a feel for some props and textures.

Right now I haven't put anything up officially and have just been getting feedback from friends/playtesting with bots as I bounce different layout ideas around.

It would be nice to get a greybox posted, as MapCore has a lot of great minds that may be to your use. Better now than later when you are detailing and we find a flaw in your map, and have to restart.
