i think an iris hangar would be a nice touch for a hdn map lots of space for hidden to move around and maybe having a couple of private jets in so hidden can overwatch the iris

thinking the hangar will be too little or too simple maybe attach the hangar with a building or something so the map is bigger and a little more variation for the map

hanger's a bit too open imo. the contrast/lines of the windows might counter it somewhat but i wouldn't get my hopes up.

see hdn_jungle

That picture in that last post is pretty cool, it would make a good map imo. Thouugh I dont know the first thing about mapping, modeling all those planes would take forever im sure.

This idea requires mucho modelling. Big hurdle as far as maps go... unless you know people willing to work hard.

I wanted to make an abandoned theme park, sort of like silent hill 3, no rollercoaster models in hl2 though, or anything remotely themeparkish.

I think he wants you to notice how in jungle there is a HUGE wide open space... like a football field, and it makes for all the iris camping a corner of it. Huge open hangar would have the same effect.

i went in a server running it once, but all the custom textures were missing and i just got dizzy from all the pink and black checker squares.

Hah, that happened to me before. it must of been some Counterstrike map, absolutely every texture was missing and it hurt so bad. Why do servers have the client download the map but not the texture? Aren't textures part of the map?

oh ok i see what u mean but i stated at the end of my post to add a extra building to the map or something similar so the gameplay varies ect...

Aren't textures part of the map?

Textures are typically stored seperately, since it's inconvenient for every map to have its own copy of the same texture. However, servers are supposed to use a res file, that tells the server to associate certain files with each map, and distribute them accordingly.
If the server owner doesn't know about the res file, or the mapper doesn't make one, you'll end up with the map but not with the custom textures... And lots of pink polka dots.

It's possible to bspzip files inside the map, if the mapper doesn't trust server owners to use the res files properly.

What about the "models" and "materials" folder? Everytime I try to give a map to another computer I'm not sure if the "map.bsp"-file is the only thing to copy. Which files do I have to copy to prevent the pink polka party?

Edit: I just looked into my Filefront Account. hdn_jungle_b2 got downloaded 3 times (of 4) this week! :D

There's no easy way to find out, that I know of.
Copying it over, then looking in the console for missing material errors is the only universal way.

Thanks Demented! I worried about it...

So lets hope all mappers include their content into the bsp! :)

with these tools you can include missing mdl, vtf, sounds

its a bit tricky but should work (like in my map hdn_contruct ;) )
