Here are some very early screenshots from my new map project. The first screenshot should explain the name. The main layout is obviously fixed, but much of the internal structure is only preliminary. In contrast to my last map (http://forum.hidden-source.com/showthread.php?t=7689), I want to post early and often. As always, feedback and criticism are welcome.

Screenshots:

It could be made a car park or possibly, with enough glass, an "I, Robot"-style executive building. High class, high tech, white wall, shiny floor kind of place... Might have potential. I like maps with a story that suits the map and allows it to blossom, and I prefer them to maps with a great layout with absolutely no story.

I think he will love it, a ode to him via hammer?

Phaed, I don't think that shape represents what you think it represents. =P


The later pictures show it larger than I thought from the first pic. Reminds me somewhat of a certain concrete culvert area in Half-Life.

Here are a couple new screenshot of my latest efforts:

As you can tell, I'm playing around with a stalkyard type feel. There isn't much progress because I'm a little aimless right now, just trying out different things to see where it takes me. I want to do something more with the center area, I'm just not sure what. I was thinking maybe a center building/lift with walkways to the outer ring second level. Any ideas are welcome.

Also, I was thinking of changing the name to hdn_boxicon or something like that so the reference is a bit more subtle and Boxy might not feel insulted having his name attached to what may very well end up being a shitty map. Thoughts?

It would have been too hard to create in brushes anyways.

Hmmm

Looks like a phys kill arena right now (minus the stuff to throw). Just fill the whole thing in with wooden pallets and cinder blocks, with jimmeh buried somewhere in the pile :D
