    also the entire thing looks dynamically lit, which is awesome because model shading in source has always been not very good

    I get distracted by links random friends send me
    Don't befreind aspen then...it used to be a new dubstep or garage link every few mins.

    Distractions and brain rotting all in one.

    Boots up sdk and finds some nickleback for the day.

    I'll map to quite active music, and make my game to some more sombre stuff, so i can do some meditation to bring models forth...

    I map to what works...i got a real variety of music. I got some evenescance/nightwish, paradise lost for when i need to listen to some really dark music, let loose and alan parsons for laid back music, shinedown and alter bridge are reserved for destroying mappers blocks. This week Nickelback seems to be working well.

    *just switched to presidents of the usa...i need some mental tunes.

    Anything that doesn't* pre-date '99 isn't going to get a listen by me, I'm afraid. I suppose it's just a matter of taste.

    Interesting really, seeing as i have stuff from the 1940's and 50's. I listen to what i like, i don't listen to a specific class of music, or from a specific time period.

    For me, this is quite an inspirational song:


    But so is this:


    But then again, most people are probably classed as sane compared to presidents.

    Errrr, Nickelback date to 1995.

    Just thought I'd say, anyway I usually find myself listening to Pink Floyd, Eminem, System of a Down, Slipknot, The Cranberries, Fallout 3 Music, Dido, Alanis Morissette. So quite a mixed music group.

    I don't have any special mapping music, I just listen to what I listen while doing anything else, so basically 70's / 80's rock/pop.

    But I have to listen to something while mapping. Mapping without music is just impossible

    But yeah, map for 2 days straight hen nothing for 2-4 months at a time.

    Fucking TINY EXPLOSIONS! love that song and almost all of their other songs! Presidents of the US of A, love it..

    (I just wanted to be included, I saw so many talking topics and had to chime in on them all..)

    Man fuck Virgin Media, they're not going to give me a static IP address unless I get a business line.

    Fuck you Richard Branson.

    Would dynamic DNS work for a thing like teamspeak?

    I forgot the name of a map and was wondering if you guys could help me remember it.

    It was just one of those maps with slides and falls where you can put ragdolls in, but this one had a SHITLOAD of them. Like 20+ easily.
    Also, there was a section in the bottom of the map with a huge toilet, slowmotion room, trampoline and some other stuff like that.

    I've been looking for this map for a while, so I'd love it if someone knew what it is.

    Nope, this map didn't have any torture devices or stuff like that. Only slides and falls.

    I looked at it for some time and just couldn't figure out what made it look so much better.

    Then I finally realized it's the shadows on the character, and how that's not widely possible in source.
    Either they do have a global dynamic light as a sun, or it's just that spot right there. Under the tree.

    ..or a global dynamic light, casting shadows on/off models only?

    Graphically, that's kinda sweet compared to what we have.

    That sure looks like the 'sun' is casting dynamic shadows + the old lightning indoors.

    Ahh...about time we had this thread.

    I find that I am most inspired in the mornings (Usually right before I have to leave for college...). Turning on the radio helps me concentrate as well.
    In the evening when I have more free time, I end up opening Hammer and then I leave it open for up to a few hours before trying to either push myself to do it, or just close it. Usually the latter.
