    hi everyone !

    i'm french, so please forgive me for the grammar of this post...

    i follow this project from a long time ago and i'm... scary about the situation. i have developped a map 2 years ago, and it was the same, more and more longer to progress, and it's quite impossible to finish...
    the problem is : I never published the map because it was getting on my nerves after months works for getting a perfect map !

    I think it's dangerous to let your energy and enthousiasm reach a dangerous low range : the show is over, Gmod become more and more a "old game"

    I just want to say you : don't make the same mistake than me, people will "forgive" your project, and no one will enjoy it like you wanted them to...

    I just propose you to give us the map, maybe to your best followers, they will finish the map, or diffuse it like that, with some "fuckers problems impossible to solve"

    it will be enough because it's a Gmod map, we will make what we want with your version of the destiny, for example I likes program the destiny comportment (dial a gate when there isn't enough oxygen for example, another one for water...)



    just give us your feeling of the project, i don't want you to do the same mistake than me, a 2 year working map never finished for a progressive diminution of my enthousiasm


    kinds regards !
    I do not remember seen Tikay saying that he had it have a good laugh to make map but rather than he has got other activities in his life...

    Personally I prefer whether it is Tikay who finishes his map because He make a beautiful map.

    I find his map much better than mine which is also in development.

    Sorry for my English too I am french ^^

    How about we wait and see what happens. If he finishes the map, then that's awesome, and if he doesn't well, that's his choice, personal life comes first. If anyone wants to make something like it, go ahead and do it, but this map, to be honest, should only be made by Tikay. It just wouldn't be right to switch like that, the map is his vision, and if someone else took over, it would drastically change.

    Of corse it will be better if he finish the map, but it will be a good start to be sure playing this map before world's end...

    have a unperfect map, or havn't a map at all...

    But he will deside himself, choose to finish or let them unfinished forever... but maybe it's not the point currently ?

    xD now,... what did i say about flyboi's decision to cancel his map?
    it'll sure happen to tikays map aswell...

    telling him it should have been done by now will just make it worse.
    i know the (if you wanna call it that) "problem" with mapping and the needed motivation, plus the time you sometimes just can't afford to work on it. ^^

    the experience made in the past tells me, that this map will be canceled just like the rest of other good/promising/awesome projects, but i haven't given up hope yet to avoid this disaster hence the reason why i urge everyone to sit down and relax.

    There is no need to let others contact me. I still watch this thread. I just don't reply to every copy-pasted "Is this still alive?".

    About your suggestion/request/plea/whatever:
    No. Only because I don't post new screenshots doesn't mean I'm not working on it.
    I'll either release the .bsp when it's done or the .vmf if I don't see a completion being possible for whatever reasons.

    As long as neither of the two outcomes come true, picture me still working on the map.

    Do you honestly think he wouldn't post if he had progress?
    Stop asking stupid questions and only post if you have something constructive to say.

    See... everyone is and was, and then you just posted here for no reason stating the extreme obvious. We were being very patient, and if anyone isn't giving him space right now, it'd be most likely you.

    Saying "news plz" won't make the OP give you screenshots just because you asked.
    Read the post he made; He'll either release a BSP when it's done or he'll release a VMF if it's cancelled. If neither one has happened yet, picture him working on the map.

    I'm toying with the idea of splitting the map.
    Would you prefer one big map including as much as possible of Destiny while also featuring a few gate locations?
    Or rather two specialised maps:
    1. Detailed Destiny interior + Icarus Base
    2. Just Destiny's gate room + a hand full gate locations

    Vote by rating this post:
    = One universal map
    = Two specialised maps

    Although I won't just act on the result, but take the result into consideration.

    would the 2 specialised maps be one very detailed destany + icarus and another map for gate room and a few off world planets?

    That depends, are you considering the split because the map is getting too much for Hammer, or just because you think it might become more detailed if you size it down? I've always valued both freeplay and detail but with Hammer maybe you can't have both at this scale, so I would pick one map as long as it doesn't crash and the detail is still how you want it to be :) Good luck anyways, I know whatever you choose the outcome will be good!

    It depends really, I would like as much of Destiny as possible, but that is also dependant on these 'other' locations that you would add into the map and how detailed they are, etc.

    am curious about the map-overview on page 1.

    not atleast because of the variety of set variations on sgu, i'm pretty much clueless about where the familiar rooms are located.
    from my point of view, it looks like:
    level -1: controle interface + maybe some corridors and crew compartments
    level 0: gateroom (main floor), nexus, shuttle bay, storage room, observation deck, etc.
    level 1: kino room, nexus, gateroom (upper floor), storage room, etc.

    i don't suppose there have been major changes in the overall layout, or?

    level -1: front shuttle bay (undecided whether to include it at all)
    level 0: gateroom, storage rooms 1 & 2, portside shuttle bays, observation deck, kino room, dome, a few quarters
    level 1: upper gateroom, upper storage rooms 1 & 2, more quarters
    level ?: infirmary, mess hall, aplcr room

    although i would scream like a fan girl, if there's a chance for the bridge (pushing the up/down button all day)...you'd better not count on it.
    it's easily the most detailed room aboard destiny and probably eat a whole lot of resources

    The bridge requires too much work in order to look good. Definetely not in the first release.
