I finished my firs map. I still need to work out some bugs but it is petty much done.

Posted by orex on Mar 25th, 2010

I have finished my first map of this but it is not done yet. I almost perfected it but it need some improvement. I plan to be making some tutorials on things I used during the creation of the map. I also apologize for not updating this in a while. Some of the improvements i have made are:

Map1 pics
it is no longer full bright and

Map1 pics
And (as a weird example) added more elements

Hopefully my second level will be even better than the first.

looks nice, how many levels are you going to use for your mod?

Not really sure. I have more of a plan of what I want. So I'll keep making maps to get to where the mod should end.

Finishing the first map is certainly a good achievement and a major step.

I would advise rethinking your textures a little bit and adding a bit more detail in the way of props and decals. The couch doesn't really look like it belongs in that room. The textures imply that it's a cold, functional space (possibly used for storage) whilst the couch suggests a comfortable, livable space (like a lounge).

The corridor suffers a similar continuity problem, as it's unlikely that somebody would put down a plush red carpet in a corridor with what look to be bare metal or concrete walls.

In the map it actually fell from the ceiling in a different room.

That carpet was just to add colour to the hallyway. Otherwise it is really blah.

I guess since it's your first map I can't really complain, but the map is dull, empty, and bland. You may want to practice making maps before starting a mod.

It is my first map yes but i'll probably come back and add stuff to this map.
