    Hey Facepunch. If you've been in the mapping section for the past few months, you've probably seen MonkeyJoe's awesome tornado map thread. Well, I got impatient, and thanks to GizmoGTI, I found a tornado prefab, and threw it in gm_flatgrass. After a few half assed attempts, I got it semi working, so I present to you: Gm_Flatgrass_tornado!



    Explosions!:bees:


    Thanks to Radikal for the tornado prefab, and keep up the great work MonkeyJoe!

    Is it still all the time, or does the tornado actually move around in the map?

    Things to improve:

    The light_environment looks very bleak, try to change the color in it.
    See this: http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Sky_list

    Add a 3D Skybox with hills surrounding the map, so we won't have to see the ugly edges on the actual play area.
    See this: http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/3D_Skybox

    You can also add a few houses and structures of your choice.


    By doing this, you've proven that you dedicate a little more time in your maps.
    It will make it look much better and professional.

    Why not just tell garry to improve flatgrass in the process?

    Although i agree with you on the fact that the tornado should move.

    Flatgrass is already finished, it's released and in use. It serves the intended purpose.
    I'm just saying that he could atleast create the map itself on his own. Instead of just picking a map that someone did (In this case, Garrys map) and put a prefab (that someone else did, aswell) into one piece.

    No, that's not called mapping. That's called assembling.

    So you would rather he didn't release this?

    It's flatgrass with a tornado in it, quit bitching.

    I don't think you understood my point.

    And no, it's not bitching. It's criticism.

    Hellsten is right, I didn't really map anything at all. I just threw a prefab in flatgrass. I never claimed that I did anything more than that. Personally, I think it serves its purpose, which is to have a half decent tornado, to use while waiting for MonkeyJoe's map.
    EDIT: Oh, and the tornado does move you guys.

    I think he's trying to say it's a cool map but flatgrass is meant to be a low-quality building ground, no distractions or anything to do in the map itself. Since there's a tornado, that diminishes its purpose. So to make it look good, improve the skybox.

    This is a nice try, but why don't you just use a tornado gun inside the map?

    If you want my opinion, at least try to make it look as though you put some effort into this.

    The tornado gun is good but if you change your weapon to physgun the tornado is gone.

    Maybe it is not best.
    But before TornadoChase is relased, it's good alternative than watching the same videos of TC few times a day.

    Thanks for this, even if you didn't put any effort to make it.

    You DO realize that the point of this is to just dick around with a tornado.
    It wasn't supposed to be some big project or anything.

    It needs more power and to go faster, we shouldn't be able to out run the tornado.

    I think its time to change from a 200mb graphics card to a 1 gb one. :\
    This is somewhat laggy for me.
    I hate somewhat lag.

    O/F
    Anyone know a great graphics card that will actually let me be able to do awesome stuff? o_o

    Check the computers forums, this is the wrong place to be discussing this.

    yeah thats true, if it went faster, id probably have more fun. Running it out kind of sucks. But this was a slap together so dont expect a GOD-LIKE map.
