Next version I will release the VMFs and textures so you can edit/create new maps at your own leisure and see how I was able to create a game using nothing but hammer scripting. I hope this encourages independent level designers/map makers to go ahead and create games without relying on a programmer,finding workarounds and down-sizing your projects so they become more feasible.
I was able to create this mod in a total of 1 month of extensive work (sleep optional), I started with a simple grid of 9 maps
[ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ]
grounding [ 4 ] [ 5 ] [ 6 ] lifting
[ 7 ] [ 8 ] [ 9 ]
I refined the grid and assigned areas to each part of the grid, each became more solidified the more I worked on them. Once I got tired of working on one area I proceeded to the next and repeated the process in a loop untill each map was considerably complete. I created models for this mod but unfortunately it's been impossible for me to import them into source ( I pinned it down to my version of maya ) and figuring it out ate too much development time so I decided to use hl2 models and turn recognizable characters into silhouettes.
