Hi, here's a little about myself to get things kicked off: I've been mapping since December 2003, and the map in this thread is my second major Source map(I usually prefer to stick to the classic Golsource engine). My first major Source project was a map for Exite, but I dropped it because i lost both ideas and motivation. This map is a whole new beast, though.
This is a map I just started about a week ago called hdn_armacham. Hdn_armacham is, as you might have guessed, a map based on F.E.A.R, featuring authentic textures and sounds from the game itself. Right now its still very much in the planning stages, as I've been spending most of my time on it just setting up the textures(the map will be roughly 80% custom content, if not more), so all I have right now is this one room which isn't even finished. The rest of the map's concept lies in my head and on various sheets of paper I doodled on during school.

I don't think there's much to show, but I wanted to let the community know that I have started this. Keep in mind that these screenshots are extremely subject to change(and probably will):

Woot, copyright violation!

But it's not Valve's or a mod team's, so I won't tell if you won't.

Its not illegal, don't worry. All the FEAR materials that I'm using are coming from the multiplayer version, which is free and open-source. Now if I were using material from the retail SP version it would be a different story, but I'm not, so I'm in good standing.

by the way I don't play Dystopia too much, but I do love that game. More than likely it wasn't me. I only go by Paxton Fettel in The Hidden anyway;)

I'm fixing the face splitting on the pillars as we speak and am still fiddling around with a few of the textures to get the gloss just right, mainly the glass textures.
