Map Description

This map has a discussion topic which can be visited here

I know the middle-eastern setting has been done a billion of times before (dust-like maps tend to be popular and widespread), but I'm really doing an effort to use original architecture.

(09/08: Updated screenshots)

I'm now working on basic architecture and lay-out of the map, details will be added later on.

I'm such a slow mapper.

K, I'm adding rounded corners right now.

It's alright, but it really needs better lighting and a skybox.

And as Crono said, a little roundness would look nice.

All I can say is don't be afraid to up the brush count a bit. Especially with cylinders. Unless the excuse you'd use is that you don't want to work with more edges.

Here's a new shot of the part I'm doing right now:


The lighting isn't right yet, that's because of the left building - which should transform into a shop once I'm ready with it) is still roofless.

Ah, ok. First working on the layout seems to work better for me, too.

If it's a temple complex, then that car and a market seem a little out of place to me, unless you're adding a village part to it. If not, a digging site might be nice. <img src=" SRC="images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Keep it up. <img src=" SRC="images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Some kind of ruined middle-east temple complex.
It looks a bit repetitive now, I know. I'll be adding props (not too much) and details (like "tapijten") when the architecture is done.

Looks ok I think, but overall too similar in color and lighting. Adding some middle-east tapestry(? - tapijten), perhaps old and dusted and broken, would be good I think. If you can find an alpha-blending sand texture for your dismaps, that would be good too. It's too similar right now.

What's it going to be? A ruined middle-east village, or more of an old capital/palace thing?

Update time. The first shot is a new one, I'm planning on doing a market-kind of thing for the CT spawn. (Skybox will be changed ... it's too happy.)

Shakes the dust off

Woojay ! Updates !
I've been off mapping for a while (work, ...)
and due to the snarkpit hosting problems and the slow connection to the pit (every page needs 5-6 seconds to load ... ) I haven't been here for a time.

Anyway, here are the new screens. You other source-mappers on the pit will be way ahead of me concerning techniques & tricks, but hey ... I'm just a lazy mapper. Links to full screenshots (these have been resized):

All of the recent screenies were done with VIS setting on Fast, so that could be the odd lighting problem some faces have. When the map is done, I'll do a full, but for the moment, I don't have the time to wait an hour smiley
