    Just a couple textures and low-detail brushes. Doesn't seem that impressive.

    Well if you play Ocarina of Time,thats the way it looks,if they looked any better it wouldn't be like it,trust me,its a Nintendo 64 game,I can only agree on the texture part,but I did have a help needed section.

    There is no point in porting a game if you aren't going to make it look better than it did back then. It's like the doom ports- if you want to play doom, play doom, if you want to play Ocarina of Time, play Ocarina of Time.

    If your excuse of why you couldn't make it look better is that the original didn't look great, go look at goldeneye source.

    Look at the DM_Peach's castle map. It's 100% the original, blocky textures and all, and people still use it. Look at the AC map, and the Pokemon map. Its called nostalgia.

    Doesn't mean you can't put some effort into it.

    Tell you what, i'll create a series of fullbright boxes with boxy chests in and call it a fatal labyrinth map.

    I totally agree,I wanted to make a map that blasted me to the good old days,the last thing I wanted was a Zelda with all source materials,then I would be upset with myself,I am just happy some people do understand.

    Yes you do,its called a nostalgic map. And if that's sarcasm,please don't comment,this is for fans of the original n64 Ocarina of Time,Lon Lon Ranch was my favorite,so I did a recreation,still not mastered,but I do love it,the changing music does wonders. =)

    It's not even that it's blocky. Its also been badly textured with constantly tiling textures. I'm assuming this is all part of the "nostalgia"

    I was giving my honest opinion...obviously with only 22 posts and it's your first time in the mapping section you won't know me or my work. Basically i give honest opinions, and if you don't want to listen then fine.

    And that wasn't a joke, i really do have some very...original stuff of my own.

    No,im sorry about that,I wasn't doubting your mapping,I was talking about when I said "Fails-
    *Repeating Textures,wanna help me!? Rip textures from Ocarina of Time and PM me with them. Or a guide/program to rip with." that was a quote from my main topic,just high lighting that I haven't perfected my materials lol

    In my opinion. The only worthwhile ports are those that take an old game concept and remake it so it's incredibly detailed and looks like a real-life version of the theme area.

    There is no excuse for blockiness. Those games were made because that pushed the limits of their system. We're on a different, better system. We have the capability to make much more detailed and comprehensive levels. Ignoring that is stupid, and calling your map "nostalgic" as a way out of taking time on it is a weak excuse.

    Im sorry,I totally disagree with you,if I saw a Lon Lon Ranch map and it didn't look like the old one I would be positive I wouldn't download,but maby im that kind of person,my favorite maps are mine and that dm_peachcastle. I love the castle brings me back to the good old days,and I love to feel like im using a source weapon in a old game. Nostalgic isn't just a lame excuse because if I wanted to I could do a lot better,but my intentions the whole time from start to finish was to finish with a nostalgic map. Sorry I cant agree with you,but I can see were you are coming from also.

    Haha, its funny to see so many people trashing this because its 'blocky' or seems as if no time was put into it at all. For the most part, I find it pretty good. It is great for a Zelda RP and brings back old memories of the game in which I love. As for its looks? Just like it would of in OoT, which in my opinion is great. You get what is said, nothing more and nothing less.

    If someone was to revamp the Ranch with today's graphics it would personality be horrible. Sure it would look better, but wouldn't have the same feel. It wouldn't share the same memories or feelings you got when you first played that map on your old N64 because its now remade with graphics that weren't there before.. something new I guess.

    Anyways, I enjoy the map and I hope you continue with them ^^ As said before, it brought back great memories. I enjoy playing in a map of my favorite childhood game :) Some people out there do appreciate you bringing this into Gmod.

    If you're going to recreate something, use some imagination and use source's capabilities to make it look nice.

    You cant read it? I could read a wall of text without spaces,(space)but then again im god like. Lets keep the thread mature please.
    You do realize that there's a space after commas, right? You know, kinda like in that sentence. He never said he couldn't read it, but it gets irritating when you do it every single fucking time, along with all the other grammatical mistakes I'm sure you made. And I gotta go with the general consensus, the whole bad textures/blocky thing. And yes, I understand nostalgia, but the thing is is that it's just not a very well made map. Now, if you had included some of the villagers or goats or whatever I'm sure was there (haven't played OoT in years), especially with custom NPC codes, I'd be impressed. But seeing as it's a lifeless, blocky village type area, I'm afraid it wont get much praise.

    Oh yeah and uses a different skybox too.

    I love going on this map, really. Adding that music option was a really good idea too. I love it. Like you said yourself, all that you need now are more textures.

    Sorry that people can't get the concept of having a classic and retro styled map to play on. I'd personally be requesting a ton of classics.

    Like FluxMage's clock town map he's making, I can't wait for that.
