    Does that version of the road textures have the 3 and 4 way intersections? If not I'd like to share those.
    I'm almost certain it does (I just didn't use them at that point in the old map's development). I don't remember who made the roadpack set though; I'm using them in London too, so if anyone knows their original creator - even if it's you - let me know so I can put them in the map credits.

    Just make an arcade map based around one of the piers! You could always do South pier, and include the Sandcastle water park and Grosevnor casino ;)
    I guess I could, but I've never been to Blackpool and don't hold that much of an attatchment towards it (yeah I know, soft southern bitch etc); London being my beloved home town is probably the main reason this project's made it this far. But I'll consider it for sure.

    Barriers!

    Ahh. You beat me to it. I considered a london map after I was able to play some weird game, can't remember the name now. It was like GTA, but in London. Was going to recreate the textures and use them as a template, as it did have a map which would look good in source. Oh well. You have done an incredible job on the Subway. The models are really nice as well. Wish I could port models. It would really add to my maps. Very nicely done!

    That interior lighting of the subway looks fairly dull, especially in comparison with the outside.

    Other than that the subway is looking pretty good!

    The Getaway?


    Also OP, if you need any help with silly fake adverts, let me know because I've got a bunch of them on my deviantart.

    Could've been The Getaway? Either way, you don't have to abandon your idea just 'cos of mine - I'd honestly be interested to see how that would turn out as a map. You do you, dude.

    I'll be sure to change up the lighting and make it look more vibrant. Thanks for the compliments from both of you!

    -whatthefuck-
    Yeah nah, I'm good. I'll probably make the adverts myself, and as with most of the rest of the map I want to try and make them feel real (so they won't exactly, uh, look like that)

    Not really planing on doing a london map anymore. I'll stick to the USA.

    Beautiful. I wish there were more skilled mappers in GMOD/Source Engine community like you.

    Awww shucks. I never thought of myself as a skilled mapper - more as somebody who just got lucky making good looking Tube stations for the last five years of her life - but I'm glad to hear other people think I am.

    Also, more stuff! (WIP as always)

    Come on now, don't be daft. The only Jesus in this thread is the Jesus in the sentence "Jesus you guys sure know how to flatter me". (that is unless I include a church or faith center in the map)

    Also, if anyone has any suggestions for the map then don't be afraid to let me know. In particular at the moment I'm looking for:

    - textures; it's pretty hard to find any good generic London building textures, especially for older Georgian/Victorian/Edwardian-era buildings, and I'd definitely appreciate any resources of that nature (or any good multi-use London textures out there)

    - the BBC building; it currently has three different studios, which are a radio/recording room, a news room, and a green screen room. I've got room for one or two more rooms, so what should they be? (I'm thinking of including two sets out of a 10 Downing Street set, an inside House of Commons set, and a set for a show like Doctor Who or Eastenders, but if you have any other suggestions then feel free to tell me)

    - the atmosphere; is the warm sunny aesthetic good, or would a colder more overcast feel be better? (I might try and get the map compatible with GMod's sky customisation thing)

    - any other buildings/features you'd like to see in the map (most of the usual RP staples will be present)

    A map that had been recently released, rp_newexton, managed to have lights that were compatible with stormfox, perhaps try and do that on this map? You should go with the flow in your mind, it looks far too good already.
    Also is this meant to be Covent Garden?
    Anybody know how the tube would work?

    I think the GMod .fgd has an env_skypaint entity that allows compatibility with the sky editor, and by extension with third-party weather addons like StormFox, so that's probably what New Exton uses. I honestly don't have much experience with GMod-specific entities (I've always used default HL2 Ep2 Hammer with other assets mounted) but I'll give that a go later on!

    As for Leslie Green Market, it's inspired by a combination of various central London markets - mainly Covent Garden, but with a bit of Leadenhall and the various Camden markets thrown in there too. And the tube will be an in-map train entity using a custom model, automatically going back and forth between the stations (but it'll be fast so you won't have to wait long). Essentially it'll work in pretty much the same way as subways on other RP maps, including the classics like Oviscity and Townsend.

    Speaking of the tube - I sent some WIP pics of the map to Underground boffin/world record holder/documenteer Geoff Marshal, and it seems to have gotten his seal of approval!

    (he did call me sir which I'm not super thrilled about, but oh well, it's better than no reply at all)
