EDIT - I spoke too soon ;P - Deleting the newer (and uglier) portion fixed the error, somehow. Nothing much new, but some tweaked lighting and new phys items and such, yadda yadda.

Beta testing will be sometime shortly - Drop me a PM or E-Mail if you would be interested.

Updated, a bit. The screenies are new and fixed and the link also has the rest of the new screenshots.

I've been looking at the lighting trying to figure out how to improve it, KFS - I want to have it nice and refinery-looking but still want it sort of dark and grimy. It's difficult to strike the balance...I feel I've brought a few of the elements from those images (blue lights, for example) into the map a little bit, and it seems way too dark the more I look at these screenshots. I'll do more tweaking.

Lighting needs more:



and



You've got some really cool architecture there, but you're going to need some really localized lighting to really sell the theme. The big thing are the dense light fixtures and flares all over the place.

An oilrig/refinery has been a pet project idea of mine for ages; I'll probably never make it for an actual game, but it may show up in my 3d environment section sometime. You can find a lot of photos like these at corbis (I just searched for refinery and night to find the light reference) or any other decent stock photography places online. [addsig]

and i only mentioned a pit, because lep was giving serious thought to re-enabling the option to acquire one.

i already have a pit, so i do not know if they are currently available or not.

but recently, lep suggested that he was going to re-enable them, cause of his recent bandwidth increase.

i too, was not having a go at anyone, nor attempting to create strife by posting inaccurate info.

I'm pretty sure Lep closed off pit subscriptions quite some time before Rabid was a member though, so its not really an option. I wasn't trying to get at you for not commenting on the map or anything mate, was just trying to show that its understandable that the post has had so many replies despite the temporary lack of working screenshots [addsig]

Okay so months was a bit of an exaggeration, but it has been two weeks I only mentioned it was actually three because Rabid has posted a load more than that through the thread, so being able to host three of them here is of little consolation.

unless, *refers to my last post* he has..... a pit

Duncan, i was gone for 5 days, and before that i was gone for 3.. one map is going to slide past me ever so often.

beside, i have lost most of my interest in maps for a time, till i get this Christmas computer thing out of the way.

at present, i still have not loaded hammer even once, and only played HL2 to the point where i met alyx..

Christmas is sure getting in my way

How it works:

Leperous/Snarkpit will host up to 3.

You can host up to 5 with all external links.

actually, once i checked, you are both correct, and mistaken.

if lep grants him a pit, he can upload 5 and display them from the pit

i was mistaken, but i meant well.

You only have the option of uploading three Orph, and the screenshots have been working fine for months, hence all the replies.

you're being deliberately obtuse Duncan.. its been here for only days, and you can upload UP TO 5 screenshots.

please, do not be so..

[edit] so it is three.. but the purpose still remains.. why not let the snarkpit host them?

Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.
