Will update once I get back home -- out for the holidays.
I'm glad there are people out there who still like my old work and content. Much appreciated and have a happy new year!
Thanks for the much informative feedback on my map. Here's my reply on some of your suggestions and comments:
I know zombie maps are supposed to be dark and scary....but I felt that there's so many maps that have this theme, that a bright outdoor theme could work aswell. After all, this is a sci-fi (or fantasy) map. I just wanted to do something different.
The Skybox suggestion is great tho, I should try this out in future.
I dont know how to apply that light block tool as I've never heard of it. So maybe you can tell me more about it?
About displacements, I am not quite much experienced yet with them. I used the subdivided option a few times. And yea, they look a bit blocky, but it takes some calculation in design where I made a few mistakes and its lots of work to adjust em now. Also, I kept displacements power low cuz I needed to boost FPS at some places (the valley for example). I would love to make a very beautiful scenery but I have to keep in mind that there's users with low-PC's. And HL2 engine aint really powerful at it.
3D-sky: I used to have a much more cooler skybox in the map, but it kinda failed in lighting. I hope to add some nice additions as you mentioned in your post as more cliffhouses etc.
I will see what I can do about it...and the rest of your suggestions.
Thanks for the feedback! You gave some good info and advice! I appreciate it!
