Deleted the sob-story as I'm at least considering getting back into this stuff. Bio otherwise left blank until I care to do something with it.

It's true that you should have a light entity wherever you're using light_spot entities (unless you're outdoors in which case environmental lighting should usually be sufficient), but you don't necessarily need a 1:1 ratio. A single light entity can often provide good pan-directional lighting for several light sources.

Tbh I enjoyed this far more which is the same basic idea: (admittedly in 2d though)

Molleindustria.org

and while the environmental design was cool, it could use quite a bit more polishing. Still, props for doing something like this in source, I think this is a great start to what perhaps could be a meatier game.

No, I think the one about the lights is pretty major, but maybe it could be made more general. Something like "Use directional lighting as well as omni-directional lighting." I think something like list 2 #6 belongs in the first list, talking about how gameplay should come before aesthetics. Lastly, what exactly do you mean by list 2, number 10? I didn't get it...

This is all very interesting, but I'm kind of wondering if its a good idea to have so many unique attributes of the psychics. I feel like the more of these attributes you add, the harder it will be to flesh them all out in the actual game, even if they make a very cool and reasonable explanation for the phsycics' powers in text form.

Also as a minor thing, you shifted between singular and plural tenses in the first sentence of the "symbiosis" paragraph.

Yeah I also found that my framerate dropped a fair bit in some of the levels for chapter 1 (the first one for one). Also was the point in chapter 3 after the Farnsworth house bit when the portal level slides in (I'm guessing that was the spot you're referring to). It definitely wasn't anything gamebreaking or too annoying though.

Agreed entirely doodoo. Honestly though, if those are actually your models, then I think you have too much talent to be making a project like this. Making any mod is tough but making what is basically a port of an existing AAA game is nearly impossible, and even if you complete it, it's likely to pale in comparison to ODST itself. I'm not trying to be too harsh but there really are just way too many people trying to make mods just to expand on a game they like, and if you want to be a serious modder it isn't the path to take.

All the same, modelling is good (once again, if it's yours) and I wish you at least luck with that if not on this project.

Very nice but I think that the posters stretching to the very edge of the brick texture looks unrealistic on that right wall. Overall the right side looks a bit flat to me.

Ok, guys, I've seen work from almost all of you, and guess what: YOU'RE ALL GOOD. And people need to stop coming to this mod's page criticizing it, because what you think is crap is really amazing post-post-modernist high art, you're just not sophisticated enough to understand it.

Oh, and the model's lookin great! Though the colors are kinda metallic, need moar kooky.

I think I'll introduce myself in addition. A fairly new member of the team, I'm deathbagel aka aaron and I'm (so far) the sole mapper on this project. I've been mapping for about a year now and I'm personally really excited to be working on this project. Right now I'm working on making an intro movie for the game which you guys might get as a trailer.

Cheers!

I like the light placement, but I think the color could be a little less white, maybe make those lights blue and add a floodlight in a corner with a more yellow light for contrast. Anyways, your stuff is looking good, I'm going to give this a track> :)

I like it, though it could use some more work. The concrete textures (of which there were a lot, I think too many, for any mod) were out of place. You would never find large amounts of concrete on a ship, after all, concrete's entire purpose is its extreme density, and so a ship with that much concrete would sink as soon as it got in the water. Still, looking good!

I agree with Korge. Lets put it this way:

I'm a new member of the fashion industry. Now I want some recognition and so I decide to include in my brand name the name of a world-wide fashion designer. But that's okay, because I own suits by this designer!

You can't tell me that's right.
