    i like that

    combine cities should definitely feel like they were once real cities, but just smothered with wires and machinery

    some maps trying to produce brand spanking new looking combine storefronts but in old world styles really created a weird aesthetic, like some shit in city45 and city 8

    Completely agree, which is why I want to build the underlying infrastructure before “Combinifying” any buildings. I chose the NYPD headquarters building as inspiration for the Nexus due to its already brutalist and imposing appearance, which stands on its own as intimidating building even before any Combine additions.

    Combine hardware should be strategically distributed as well. One really annoying habit of HL2RP mappers is just to slap Combine junk all over the place with no real thought given to what it is or what purpose it might serve.

    Had a cool conversarion on my Twitch chat about some map stuff earlier @DiBen. Might be cool to bounce ideas off each other. Something that doesn't work in my map might be better in yours and vice-versa.

    Making some good progress in the areas that I've been working on already. Started doing detailing and interior work on the CWU building, including a two door garage for easy access to tools and equipment. I've started work on the hospital exterior as well, which really fills in the street leading up to the Combine complex.

    [​IMG]

    And I've added the streets for the rest of the map, just so you get an idea of how big the map is going to be. That main road reading to the right of the image will leading to the main Civil Housing area, which will have a bit of open area.

    [​IMG]

    EDIT: bonus filler building next to the hospital

    Pretty happy to share this little update. I've got some real nice (and familiar) assets for the map, and I think they're going to work just perfectly.

    A staple of New York City, I of course had to add a bodega.

    Still WiP, of course, but those are real windows, and the fridge doors slide open! The perfect location to sell knick-knacks and necessities that you may not find in your standard Universal Union rations.

    I know we discussed this on discord previously but just wanted to say again that one of the things I really appreciated about unioncity (which I know you're borrowing some cues/assets from) was that most of the fences/walls had ladder entities attached to them so one could scale them without needing a prop or anything, etc. Made for a really nice touch.

    if u make a mini central park, it would be dope to see the big, white gazebo from l4d2. I’ve aways wanted to do spring time loyalist tingz in there. It’s also a good focal point for rallies, riots, book burnings, demonstrations, or mass coordinated suicides. Unfortunately, it’s hard to just use the prop because it lacks a textured floor.

    e: all the dumbest shit I post is right when I wake up wow

    I actually just started working on a park last night, so I'll see what I can do. That gazebo, is it from L4D2? It's been ages since I've played L4D1 and I never got through the second, so I'm not too sure.

    it’s also in the torrington and/or isolation content packs we used for zrp. idk if that helps

    also, it’s broken up into two props -the base and the roof- not sure if that’s pertinent either

    Not much to report today. Started working on a small park, and a Civil Protection outpost.

    I've got a ton of school work to take care of this week, so I don't expect many updates unless I decide to procrastinate. Appreciate all the support so far though <3
