    Hows the brushwork? (Ignoring the nodrawn pit and the messy spotlights/sprites at the back. Sorry Hiyougami.)

    I've been suffering from "Stop all creativity" block for about 5 months now... The only thing that keeps me going is shaders.

    I'm guessing he increased the number of faces on a arch and cylinders. However i could be very well wrong as I too am working on making nice curves
    That's some very nice curves you got there.

    How long does it take you to compile?
    Do you just func_detail those curves?
    The curves are actually not that hard once you start using keyboard shortcuts to align, flip, copy, and manipulate the vertices of brushes. and as far as func detailing goes, this particular map will probably benefit most from manual placement of visleafs between walls to break up the map in the correct places.

    Curves aren't too hard to make considering you put enough time and effort in.

    Well, this is all I'll post from that map, everything else has to be secreeet for the sake of the competition.
    I've got my company mate to make me a sitting barney & typing on the keyboard animation, so it's cool.

    See you when I get to map 2 for more screens of this competition.

    Interiors for the station, a little bare at the moment:





    This is the outside of the station, featuring the ugly exterior of the cabin, which I'm not sure I'll necessarily have to do, as the player may not even see them.

    Actually its two songs that blow my mappers block out. They clear the neural pathways of the rubbish and open the mind to new ideas. I guess it's my way of smoking weed or having a pint...different things work for different people, those two songs are what works for me.

    And deadchicken- welcome back to us...here, have a pet squid...i think i have taught them not to kill now...

    If they pick up anything heavy or pointed, just run.

    Whenever some new idea comes forth, it is either blown up, or used to blow something up with. It is the only use for science.

    You should do the exterior anyways, if you reuse the tram later it would help keep things consistent.

    Who would you guys recommend to watch mapping tutorials from?
    I know 3kliksphillip is bad, so I won't follow his.
    I just started mapping yesterday, so it'd be cool if the tutorials went from basic to medium.
    I know how to put entities, texture brushes, make moving doors, create spawns, all kinds of that. Just some of the more advanced stuff like arches and vertex editing, entity trails, displacements, sounds and all that jazz. Preferably with commentary.
