So it's been a little while since I updated.Here's what's went down:
I got caught up in a little mod called: Black Mesa Resonance, which I am happy to be proud of.
It's so far been a great learning experience and i've learned so much more about mapping because of it.
Though this is only one of the reasons I haven't updated.
So when I joined BMR at the beginning of November, I still worked on this mod.
I worked on it more than I ever have.
The lead developer didn't like this so I kind of slowed it down a bit to try and work on BMR.
Didn't work out too well and I kept adding bit by bit to the first level.
Another reason is pure slacking off.
I'm what you call a bipolar mapper.
I love doing a map one second, and I get so much done.
Then in an instant I don't want to keep going and put it off for days on end before I get to it.
Keep in mind i'm much better at staying focused than when I first started on the mod back in February.
If anyone remember the old version, you would remember it took me like... 4 months to get just the tunnel done. And it wasn't even done or detailed!
I am so much better at mapping that I would call myself downright decent at it.
Something I aim for as a New Years Resolution is getting at least one project done.
Looks like this is the prime contestant.
Considering the rate at which I am starting to get faster and better at mapping, I would say I will be done by the end of next year.
Especially if I get some help, which I might be expecting soon.
-Possibly a Modeler (i'm fine with HL2 assets)
Anyway, a change-log and sort of what's happened:
-Added much more detail to various places
-Tweaked Lighting Substantially
-Added an outside and a HDR Skybox
-Re-textured, added textures, and fixed textures
-Move around some stuff to make a bit more sense
-Tweaked scaling of certain objects
-Added a spooky place [?][?][?]
-Changed spawn area and removed less noise from the Ambience
That's all for now, expect some more changes soon.

I'm pretty proud of them.
