This is my current project
Its alot like my other map on the server atm. I think this is because I wanted to make a map like gg_cornershop when I started but my lack of experience made gg_the7thwarehouse.
Here a two pics of it so far.
Note: This is not finished. I have only really just begun. I am planing on changing the sky lighting etc. Let me know what you think. Cheers.

If it's anything like your last one then it should be a killer awesome map, gg_the7thwarehouse was so small and simple + the idea that was in your head when making it made it perfect. I don't know how to say this without sounding like an ass so I'll just say it: The game play of the map is awesome, just perfect, but now I think you need to work on visuals.
This map will deferentially put you to the test since you have chosen to make it an outdoor map, Not sure on what you plan on doing or adding to is but use props as cover (car or such) still maybe even use boxes, and I assume the you will be able to enter the shop, if so do the same sort of thing you did with warehouse but use shelves or cabinets instead.
But what ever you decide to do I'm sure you'll know what's best and ether way I look forward to it

It almost as if you have plucked the ideas and worries out of my mind.
I was considering using cars but there are a limited number of them and do not offer enough cover. As for the boxes this was another idea I had but why would boxes litter the street of an outdoor corner shop. On the note of that if you know a place where I can download more props let me know, i.e paste a url here.
As for the shop, Yes. I am going to open it and have shelves and cabinets in there. I was also going to try and add checkout isle and cash registers. Although I have not checked if they are available.
I have also read in places that people tend to shun night maps. I wanted this to be a night map. With street light and traffic lights to add a different spin on the map. Also moon light was going to add to the effect. Guess I could always make one version then then edit it later if it is not liked..

Not so much night maps but dark maps, I think make it night if you add lots of lighting, make it look light a city street at night and you will be all good, I think the inside of the shop should be well lit.
You'll be able to build the checkout isle yourself easy enough and cash register models exist in hl2 already.
What kind of models you after?
the thing with custom models is that they will not be packed inside the map and people will not be able to see the models unless they have the models in their cstrike folder unless you use pakrat to pack the models in to the map thus making the map file size bigger.
The best place to find new props and models are the facepunch forums.

Good looking idea 7th, should b good when its ready.

A few Ideas that just clicked as I was reading through this thread.
+ Have casheirs set up as hostages that you cant actually rescue(just dont add a rescue zone) would be a nice add on and isle boys lol.
+ All the items in the shelves can be shot out.
These are alot more work but little quirks like these make maps cooler and more memorable, but at the same time dont clutter it up to much.
LOL contrediction central.

Ehh, that would seem kinda pointless manx, lol, it would just distract people and lower fps rate. But then again, I do love maps that look pretty
Oi 7th, it;s been a month since you started this, heh, let me know if you need any help with hammer bro!
|Subject: Re: The7thLegion's Projects 2008-07-29, 19:11|| |
Yes, I did start this a while ago. There was something bothering me about it and I could not figure out how to fix it so I left it for a lil while.
All this talk on my maps has made me work on it again. I spent a few hours on it and have added a few lights and a different skybox.
Its just so much effort to try and make it look like the way I see it in my head.
Thanks for all the support and hopefully I will have it finished in the next week or so.

Here are a few pics of what I have added to the map so far:
Traffic light off: i.e It flashes
Traffic light on: i.e It flashes
I wanted to make a night map. Like I said in an earlier post. I hope theres enough lighting. I still need to finish the inside.

wow thats really not a bigger post at all. agreed though, could be quite a good map, maybe make windows on one side of the shop to reduce camping inside?

Thanks guys, Give it a chance aye. I might retexture it to something darker. Even tho I love the colour scheme as is.
|Subject: Re: The7thLegion's Projects 2008-12-10, 22:30|| |
Since it seems grim that the current version is going to get uploaded anytime soon I have made a V2.
Personally I prefer the 1st one but I guess its not my call.
