Well, in my opinion i reckon this map turned out preety good. This map doesnt have any kind of purpose at all, but it is use full to pose on, and thats the reason why i made it! With a little bit of color correction this map could be somekind of horror/zombie pose, or it could be a cold winter pose. Who knows, think of all the possibilities. I might consider making updates of the map, but that depends on if im lazy or not. This map also requires, Half - Life 2 Episode Two. Enjoy! - (Empa)

    This map is so small and easy to create, it shouldn't be rated so high. But soon i'll fix this.

    Try cutting down on the 3d models and make a 2d version (texture) of the same tree you're using in the middle of the map. I've done the same thing in an upcoming map, and you can barely notice the difference.


    Then it must be the fact that ALL the displacements are at level four

    Pros:
    Detailed and fair map for making some poses in a forest.

    Cons:
    Very small and box-shaped.
    Not much workspace, you could have implented some more flat surface to build on.

    Improvements:
    Make it bigger, vary the shape of it.
    You could have made something great, but it looked like you stopped 1/5th into the map.

    You could also have spent more time on the lighting, it looks very plain as of now.

    Notes:
    I'm surprised how this made it to the FPSB feature section, with this small amount of content and effort.
    You really have to extend this map to make it worthwhile downloading.

    Extending this map could, either, NOT compile at all, because there is so many trees. BUT, i could go from foresty, to a normal blackmesa like canyon.

    Edit: By the way, about that stopping 1/5 way thing, thats probably true, because i got sick if waiting for it to compile. Also, fair assesment, thank you.

    I can only count 20 trees, and the rest of them looks to be 2d cardboard trees. If you're having problems compiling it, you should post the compilelog somewhere.

    Edit: I'm sure you're far far away from hitting the entity limit.

    Pros: Looks amazing, very nice ambience
    Improvements: some grass would make it more realistic, add some sprites or modify the vmt file of the texture to let hammer plant the grass automaticly
