Viva la Half-Life!
Seriously, the color scheme used in this map made me think of HEV suits and gravity guns the whole way through. :)
This map is a medium-sized courtyard that gives off the feel of a feudal Japanese outpost. It includes a throne room in the center, and a zen-style sand garden. Encircleing the central area are a series of connecting single-room dwellings. Each has thier own particular features, including a forge, a meal room, and a room for meditation. My favorite feature of this map however are the two guard towers posted outside the enteryway. The attention to detail and precision here is remarkable. Whats more, the extensive work put into the roof of each building has not excaped my attention. The slopes are even and well spaced on each building.
Included in the zip are a couple of Japanese-style swords, and a longbow that replaces the wookie bowcaster. When you shoot it, the arrows actually stick into things! :D
My only complaint with this map is the corners around the small pond. The author did not go back to re-align the textures here and, though not noticable on casual inspection, was extremely distracting when I noticed it.
Good job Worr Sonn. I would love to see more extensive maps following along this theme.
New Textures: Yes New Models: Yes New Sounds: Yes New Music: No New Weapons: Yes Known Bugs: Texture misalignment beside the pond.
Edit:// I went back and played through this map a second time with some of the recent Samurai/Ronin skins installed and let me tell you, the made me feel very much at home. :)
