    Been working on some textures.


    Its just a quick map I threw together.
    The bump maps are so good the textures look like they have parallax. Unless they do have parallax.

    I imagine if you set it with a starry night skybox, and had some really desaturated color correction, it would work really well for a "Film Noir" type atmosphere.

    If you go into Photoshop, generate some noise, blur it slightly, and adjust the levels, you've got some pretty good stars you can tweak from there and use for a skybox.

    Not sure what the GIMP equivalent takes though, I'm not used to using it.

    noise blur level

    I've been working on getting the animated puddle texture from BioShock to Source. After hours of fiddling with the .vmt, I've got it working, but as far as I know refract textures can't have an alpha channel (to make a more natural puddle shape). If I'm wrong about this, someone tell me and I'll fix it. I was planning on making a dirty Rapture map since Combine's got the clean one covered, but porting the L4D2 props to Ep2 has fucked up most of my other models, including all my BioShock ones, so that's probably not going to happen anymore.

    You can have a trasparency mask with refract textures.

    Ah good, I thought I saw someone say they couldn't once. I'll see if I can find an appropriate puddle shape.

    Wow that's awesome, if your not going to finish it you should release the texture.

    For the last seven months I have maintained my arousal in readiness for her who's womb is abomination.

    And so I sit here. I must maintain my erection in tribute to the Black Goat for her fertillity is the light by which we must navigate the shores of humanity. I think of her many breasts and how my lips are poised upon her nipples. I think of the fluids I imbibe and spew forth. My station is perfect in accordance to her will and I await the pattern from which life will spring.

    Oh, my arm aches from the scribbling of calculations. By the Old Ones I am tired but I think I have finaly completed the algorithm by which we may usher in the Black Goat.
    Cassiopeia is in allignment as of tomorrow and I feel almost giddy with the possibilities. Ptolemy's slut will be the mother of our mistresses spawn and this world will fall to the orgy of slaughter that is to follow.

    But three hours till the birth of he who shall part the veil. But three hours till our eyes are clensed of the mundane and the infinite shall be unbound. But three hours till my skin is shed and I shall walk unfettered.



    Sorry about the script but it's the first I have implimented... By the way, is there some way I can show an overlay and pause all movement until it is dismissed?

    Well, It's about a Lovecraftian cult who dump their failed sacrifices into an abandoned government bunker. A policeman investigates the area when a call is made by dog walkers about a body they have seen, which has apparently fallen down an air shaft.
    Through investigation the player discovers a vast conspiracy to bring about the hideous birthing of an alien race through an occult conspiracy.

    Nah, its just Ssbump with 1 + hours put into the textures, I could make them parallax, vote agree if you want me to do it and post pictures.

    (If I do add parallax then its thanks to legend's shaders.)

    The upper stand seems all wrong, you can't see shit if you sit there.

    Drew a quick outline how it should be in my opinion:



    The blue lines indicate the what you can currently see, the green ones what you can see in my suggestion. As you can see the blue lines clip the the sturcture.

    All the seating is based off the American Airlines Center.

    The only one that might need adjusting is the seats being steeper in the section you pointed out.
