MAP08: Garden of Delights (Redux)

Post by Xaser » Mon Jul 30, 2012 5:24

So, I'm redoing MAP08 since the original left plenty to be desired. It's a bit early since I'm still working on the facade of the place, but:

The gist of the map is that you're raiding a billionare Chinese businessman's mansion who happens to have a thing for Tibetan monasteries (hence the design of the place). I'm honestly not sure how close the interior of the map is going to be to the original, either, so for all I know it'll be a whole new map by the time it's done. :P

Also, Jimmy's done a new tune for this map that's nothing short of awesome and is providing half the inspiration by itself. The other half, naturally, is from the amazing textures Cage whipped up for this one, based on a random request I had. Props, guys. ;)

Well goddamn if that isn't sexy as shiz. :shock: Glad I could serve as inspiration for such a map! :D

Also, I'm just gonna leave this here...

Very cool! Now all we need is a 3-year-old kid to come by and start stomping on it.

Speaking of cool art, have you seen the 3D chalk art?

So, this is what happens when you give Xaser some spare time and an infinite supply of linedefs:

Rather proud of the map progress thus far, even if it's just the start area. Cage's wraparound sky really makes the scene -- that's a brand-new texture, BTW. :)

Juicy, man!

For some reason, I really really like asian architecture. :)

This isn't actually a map update, but more of a self-reminder to recreate this scene in the titular garden somewhere:

I'll prolly need to reach out to Cage for appropriate cherry blossom textures, of course, but I'll be damned if that's not a cool-as-hell photo.

"I was hoping for a more cliche setting, but I guess koi ponds and cherry blossoms will have to do." :P
