Introducing some cool new effects, and our new mapper, AlexCrafter!
Posted by wilsonC on Jul 30th, 2009
First off I`d like to introduce to everyone our new mapper, AlexCrafter. He`s an experienced source mapper, having created maps for Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, Prison Island and Zombie Master, and developing the mod Sity . You can take a look at his website if you`re interested.
Now the update... Nothing really mindblowing, just pictures of some new bumpmaps and refraction effects in action. Be patient, the animated gifs may take a while to load.
They were made using a combination of CrazyBump, Photoshop (and the Nvidia plugin) and the normal map tool in TheBestFlash`s SSBump Generator. Here`s some pictures of the refraction effects: (these pictures were posted about a week ago)
The water ripple effects use the new Orange Box particles, allowing them to refract and fade in and out properly. Well, thanks for reading the update, we`ll have more cool stuff to show off next time!
