Contesting: Frozen Assets Dev Blog

20 05 2011

It feels really good to finally be done this map, and to have submitted it for the contest at TF2maps.net. It also feels good to have done so much that I’d as of yet not done before in this map. I’m not going to really go screenshot-heavy in this post because not much changed save for a few bits added here and there, but rest assured in the near-future I’m going to have download links up as well as a media gallery that will show off not only the map but also the custom content I created for it.

The map formerly known as Slush Fund: Frozen Assets Dev Blog

11 05 2011

So the name change is official now. Slush Fund will hereafter be known as Frozen Assets.

I just finished going around the map testing out my latest set of changes which included putting in a fully working soundscape and almost completing the 3D skybox. I say “almost” because there’s still some minor graphical glitches that ruin the effect that I have to sort out. I also ran into some lighting issues that needed to be fixed. Those are fixed now in what I hope will be the “final” iteration of the Slush Fund/Frozen Assets development cycle but who knows.

I’ve also created two more custom posters that I’ve put inside my level, but lighting issues make them hard to read in-engine so i’ll just show them off along with some screenshots right after the jump:

Urban Renewal: Slush Fund Dev Blog

4 05 2011

It’s certainly been a while. I’ve been hard at work building the 3d Skybox for Slush fund so it doesn’t look like it’s hanging out in the middle of the sky as much. I’ve only got one side completed thus far (the other side I had a couple problems with displacements) but the side that is complete looks pretty good. Of course you don’t have to take my word for it or even agree with me, just take a look at these screenshots. I know some of the shadows are a little messed up but I’m not sure how to fix that just yet. Mostly this post is just to show some more progress work as I get closer and closer to the deadline and completion.
