koth_hydro_bowl

A Map for Team Fortress 2

The map is a conversion of the satellite part of tc_hydro to king of the hill game mode with balancing work. Some changes from the original: -- 4 bowl exit doors -- full underground ring -- RED spawn in caves -- Auxilary spawn for current non-point holders. -- BLU spawn pushed back to match RED's -- Extension of BLU's battlements -- Top of the assaulting hill on RED's side blocked off. Known bugs: -- Can still see outside the map from cracks in the unused assaulting doors. [Fixed in the alpha 3 work that's beginning] -- RED's bottom resupply locker and the aux spawn resupply locker do not animate when used. -- No 3d skybox -- No Roof above BLU's 2nd floor exit. --> can be seen by soldier/demos Projected fixes for _a3: -- Further balance work -- Detailing of RED spawn -- Slightly more BLU spawn detail. -- Underground wall player clips not so unpredictable -- 3d skybox -- skybox/lighting change back to tc_hydro's

    Posted by Tapp Anyway, you should focus on changing the skybox (seriously, it looks reeeeaaly ugly) and maybe making it look like the rest of the map is still there (even if it involves moving it so that it is visible over the walls)
    I took a run around tc_hydro. I was simply amazed. This map will look 20x better as soon as I copy the 3d skybox in and fix the lighting.
    It doesn't look like you have the correct sunlight settings for hydro or you didn't preserve the color_correction entity from the original vmf. If you are going to create a hydro duplicate, at least make it look like hydro. Another thing you seem to be missing is that 3dskybox.
    Thanks for the stuff about the sunlight. A lot of concern seems to be the lighting, so it is now my main priority. I was having issues with the HDR, so I'm gonna poke around tc_hydro and see if it's fixed in there with an entity. Alpha 3 is coming along nicely.

    Looks great, I imagine that this map would play great. Funny thing, I actually thought of EXACTLY the same thing a while ago. Good thing I didn't actually do it! Anyway, you should focus on changing the skybox (seriously, it looks reeeeaaly ugly) and maybe making it look like the rest of the map is still there (even if it involves moving it so that it is visible over the walls)
    Last nightmare had film grain.
  • Well this is actually what I was thinking to convert a control point into a king of the hill which means it would be a center of the satellite that Valve would've making it but you had an excellent idea what you've been making.

    You should really change the skybox. Thats the only thing I dislike about this map.

    Great Idea. Hydro was one of my favourite maps for a while, and the bowl part was probably the most entertaining of them all. Will have a look 'round it later, and give it an assessment.

    Pros: A good use for an disappointingly underplayed map. Cons: Due to the lack of a world skybox, the map seems cheap and a little bland. Improvements: Add in a skybox and perhaps a sniper's perch. Notes: This is actually a great idea. Good on you, man.
