edit: why is this getting disagrees, it's gameplay first, detail last.
I think the problem in your case is the (im guessing) light entities shining upwards onto the ceiling. There's no conceivable way that amount of light (or that focused of light for that matter) could reach up there, since the fixtures have opaque tops. So get rid of (or at least tone down) the lights and stick with downward pointing spots.
Ideally the ceiling should be darkish (emphasis on the ish) and in shadow, with bright light saved exclusively for key locations the player should be looking at.
I made some arches.
WIP of a Half-Life 2: Deathmatch map, set in a ghost town a few miles away from C17.
Time + Patience + Magic powder
Still trying to recreate Buzludzha.
So. Many. Vertex. Errors. Still, I really admire the effort. Especially the hands.
I am thinking of making a thread where I will post different versions of the map. I am thinking of making a version where the map is all brand new and shit like when it was back in the 80s in Bulgaria, and another version where its all abandoned and shit like today. I am already thinking of making this a TTT map for garry's mod, or some sort of Gm map.
I accidentally this:
There's no 3D preview. What to do?

I think the model browser on the CS:GO SDK is drunk, its writes sometimes from right to left, if i want to type light it writes thgil.
WIP Xen skybox for HL2DM.
It's 3D. The misty nebulas move and have depth.
I'm trying to make a "spooky" map at the moment and I want the player to start with no HEV suit or weapons in GMOD. The way you set what weapons you start with don't work in GMOD (that's why you always have all your weapons in Half Life 2 maps) but it's clearly possible because stuff like gm_apartment does it. Do I require a lua script or is there a way to do it in Hammer?
Made a pillar to go with my arches
Having some issues with the shadows and textureing it however.
Any help with these shadows?
Brown, but it needs to be a
littlelot less saturated.
Why did you take my roof access away? Where am I gonna camp now? :(
BM:S comes out tomorrow. I'm totally pumped for it :D
To be mapping related, does anyone have this old map?
I made it a while back, then mediafire removed my one and only link :P and I have no backups. I want to redo it and redo it right.
