Hi everyone, I just finished my first map EVER...I came here to get some feed back on it before I submit it... This is the Hidden Hangout, I've been working on this map for far to long and have finally finished. This map includes a swimming\hot tub area (by the way those ladders actually work) , archery range, Italian restraunt\sports bar, secret basement, Moon Bounce (big bouncey things kids have at picnics), A lobby for a "special" game place, a very detailed LAN party room, and a whole bunch of secrets (which are probably to easy to find....) O by the way this DOES have bot support so It'll be 56k'er friendly as well...Here's some ingame shots...
Looks good. You seem familiar somehow...
TY! familiar...IVE NEVER submitted anything to jk3 files....unless u no me from ingame...(whats your ingame name?) U dont play republic commando do u??? cause i think i remember some1 named Zyar from RC mp mayb3 im imagining it lol

o...hmm...i havent played in about over a year either ...my name used 2 be Ali3n...before that it was Da Ghost lol I think this 1s gonna stay for awhile lol alright i just thought maybe u did....oh well...
You definitely need some tips in Lighting. There's no light source, and the lighting is totally random. I'm sure if you asked nice, Inyri would help you out a bit there ;). The textures are very bland, repetitive, and seriously clash with everything else. Try to make your own textures. Especially since I would never see bricks that size in any sports bar *I* went to. You make want to shrink those or something. The fireplace should be brick also, not shale ;).
actually i no how 2 light...but i put a giant light source in my map (value of 10,000 lol) for testing purposes and then forgot about it....now i cant find it....my lighting sources when i started were quite good...do u think i shader sun would be ok or r u talking like street lights and light bulbs??? the only thing is i cant really fix the textures cause the way my map was designed there r many brushes that cross paths and overlap in some cases so if i do that i would have some seriouse z-fighting however i do agree with the bland ness...on the games building at least sorry i dont really c how there bland...unless u mean that there all kind of dull and boring...lol sorry im kind of tired i had a LONG day...as for making my own textures...some of those R MY own textures however many were taken from onoobi's mcc village map which HE got from mayang.com/textures ....so yeah...ill keep in mind what u said...but i probably wont fix these untill i release it ill then update it...this is because i need LOTS more people to comment so i can get more opinions....thanx for the tips Deviant!! o by the way this is a role playing map/ hangout...its not supposed to be "exciting" and bright but i will think about what u said....i might even add some rain fx and change the sky box in v2...im not sooo sure though....ANYWAYS i better stop talking...THIS IS LONG!
o by the way the 4th shot is a very bad angle...it doesnt look like that....just bad angle thats y the bricks look distorted as well...
The textures are very bland, repetitive, and seriously clash with everything else.
AHHH i even tried to make sure that didnt happen by using lots of different textures....guess i made it worse lol...the reason the fireplace isnt brick is because i used SO much brick in this map already i tried 2 do something diff. *sigh*
Hey man..this map looks awsome for a first try. As .the deviant recommends, I would update the lighting and make the fun catsle destroyable =O and I would be pefectly willing to beta test *wink* lol

When did I become an expert on lighting? :uhm:
It looks good, but... I've never seen a cue stick that looks like that before...
