@Radu just to let you know that your earlier suggestion to make the football field fence fortification as a side quest, is being currently implemented :)

the kids are gonna be happy

Haven't played Dying Light, but I might just get it to try out your campaign when it's done.

From the few hours I've played dying light this made me think this was the official map at first for some moments. So amazing to see this hard to give any criticism of any kind. Then again I'm still a bit new so my eyes are untrained.

Thanks.

My aim is to have this custom campaign feel like a continuation of the main game in terms of visuals and story/quest.

Wow, that鈥檚 a lot! More than I played CSGO lol 馃槅

You progressed apparently so quickly that I would have never thought you spent all that time developing.

Wish I had the game to play test your campaign聽馃槢

A vineyard and wheat field in the countryside

The third and last part of the campaign is progressing; most of this last map is still barebone WIP but some parts are starting to come alive.

I'm also creating some custom materials/textures with proper blending masks to be used on the terrain. A new side quest is also under planning.

Fall/autumn update

The 3rd and last part of the campaign is progressing steadily. Most of the new areas are being laid out, blocked, and fleshed out. Scripting the final quest is also making good progress.

No solid ETA yet but I'm pushing to have it ready the soonest.

Here's a fresh batch of screenshots showcasing the new WIP areas.

A functional highway system is being built with proper exits, ramps, signage, barriers, tunnels...

inspires me to switch from the limited source engine.

But overall, love the screenshots that are showing up.聽 Great use of detail and each image looks professional!

Hey thanks, nice to see you here on the core聽:)

Once you move on, Source becomes a tedious chore if you ever decide to come back

      Alright, I did some testing with the new detail sprites and found out how more specifically how they work. @Mamorex聽was on the right track but there's a few key things you left out.聽

      Removing $alphatest from the material or adding $translucent

      First, the detail sprites material - it's 2 detail sprite sheets side by side, so version A and version B. The different versions have to have same sprite positions and sizes. You only specify version A coordinates in the .vbsp.


      Next up, the detail sprites masks. Red and blue are for wind offset -- so聽you can have different parts of the sprites sway in the wind differently, you can see Valve isolated some blades of grass for this effect. The green channel is a tint mask and controls how much the sprites are affected by the $worldspacetint.聽

      That brings us to the world space textures. They seem to automatically get resized to fit the whole map area, so it you resize the map you'd have to resize the textures too.

      The world space tint texture is pretty self explanatory, controls what color to tint the grass, 127 grey means no tint.聽

      The world space masks texture uses the red channel to select which version of the sprites to use -- 0 is version A and anything more is version B.聽

      The green channel of the texture controls the sprite size -- 127 is default, with darker making the sprites smaller and brighter making the sprites larger. The vmt command $minimumspritesize聽controls the cutoff point for the sprites, so the sprites smaller than the specified value don't get rendered which can act聽as a placement mask.聽

      I don't know what the blue channel of this texture does, changing it had no effect on the sprites for me.聽



      All this means sprites still get placed by vbsp on map compile, so they still use displacement alpha for the placement, but the new masks can manipulate sprites size and color after map compile.
