Floator Mislands was the winner of the Mapeadores' Clunky Clones Contest (ccc), which required us to make a map out of copy-pasting stuff from other (not necessarily ze) maps, with rotations, scaling, mirroring, etc. The name itself was randomly made with a markov chain which had been fed 250+ ze maps I had in my folder. Some of the stuff I took was just the music, at places I added minor references to popular maps, at other times it's a straight up copy-paste of the brush work.
The resulting map proved to be both challenging and fun, while also having the reminiscent factor of 'this part is from this map!'. The full list of the maps and their makers is included both in the spawn and down below in this post.
As a map, floator includes radar, cubemaps, appropiate teleports, hdr, color correction and other postprocess thingies, and of course some secrets.
Round time is about 12 minutes.
The general progress of the maps is:
Trigger the first gate in the blackmesa silo.
Split after the gate (half go teleport, half infiltration)
Infiltration: Find the medallion (from biohazard manor) hidden in lila panic (cannot progress without it).
Teleport: Advance to open up the path for the other group.
Regroup, finish the map(, dodge the lasers? :thinking:)
