    Update: Mom got buttmad at me so while i will still be able to help work on this map, it will be a tad slower.

    Thanks.

    This sounds like my kinda thing. I'm interested.
    Having previously worked on a hl2 rp map for a community before (an edit of tnb's old City 45), I know what's needed and what isn't (particularly in the nexus). I can build training facilities, Medical bays, Mechanical Operations Centers, Offices, Lobbies, Detainments. If I do get accepted, my main focus will be on the nexus, but that will come once I get an idea of where to put it.

    Looks like we're not making any updates?

    Well don't worry, we're still working on it. Probably have some images for you soon.

    Could I be invited? I've been secretly mapping for half a year but too scared/lazy to do a full release, but I want to work on something that will be released.

    I apologise for the lack of images released. The map has undergone some seriously extensive updates and is at quite a huge level. Past the point where it is going to take serveral hours to compile. So, we're waiting to completely finish off sections of the map so when it comes to compiling, it will look near perfect.

    I thought you guys were needing one, or did I misread it?

    A nexus, that is.

    Someone remind me what a Nexus is. If it is what I think it is, there needs to be a normal players version which I would assume is the generic train station.

    Nexus is the main Overwatch HQ in the map. Though we'd be using it for Civil Protection. It's their main base in the city.

    Why not just a small area blocked off by combine access walls?

    I remember whilst playing through HL2: Ep1 there were some buildings the combine were using as like, a small outpost. Maybe something like that?

    Cave is gone for now, but we might just move it somewhere. :)

    Its wonderful you guys are getting together to do a collab, but...

    HL2RP, really?

    I mean, we already have dozens of those maps, after you've finished this map(s) could you collab on something a little more... unique?

    A HL2 themed build map would be swell, I guess.

    I did try at one point to make a themed map like so, but it was so hard on my own, I just couldn't do it. Adding tracks wasn't hard when you looked at how Valve did it, but the limit of the size of the maps makes it too hard for me.

    How about not using the default half life 2 textures?

    If you would like to not use them, I can provide.

    I don't quite see what's wrong with the default hl2 textures, they work just fine, especially if this is hl2 themed to begin with.

    Also, seeing as this is intended for actual use, I think there's something to be said for not making people download lots of extra content, seeing as many may end up downloading this map and the content it uses through the server rather than downloading and installing it manually. But that's me.

    I suppose after 8 years hl2 textures might seem a bit old, but that doesn't mean they can't still be used well.

    Hm...Combine. I used to be quite intrigued by their structures, so I did these.
    See if they inspire any of you.




    I have more pictures if needed.

    I love these, this is exactly what architecture we need for our Combine NeXus. Would love to have you on-board. But, doesn't sound like you wan't to. Which is a shame. Offer is there though, dude :)

    Sure. The photo's on the main page are seriously out of date. The map has multiplied over 5x since them.

    Edited:

    If anyone has a very good computer that can compile maps very quickly that we can use to compile the map, asap. That would be great. Because we want to compile the map and upload images. But, it's going to take a very long time on our PC's.

    Don't worry about using a func_instance. Just upload them to the dropbox.

    I'd rather use steam if you don't mind, I don't need much explanation on dropbox as much as just exactly what's going on with the project as of now oh lol btw my steam name is "gunsrfun2"



    Here are a few pics of the sewer as of now, and then, if you wanted maybe you could incorporate one of these houses, just a few quick screenies of the house and neither are completed

    Will add you know. Canal has potential. Houses are not fitting to the Half Life 2 theme.
