Something that you should consider, Boo, is that most of the textures VALVe made was from the real world; they went outside with a camera and got a couple of good photo's of different things and did what they needed to do in photoshop, or whatever they use, to get the look and effect they needed.

To show my love of everything upside-down, I made an upside-down subway station room!

The max payne music really makes a huge difference in the way it sets the mood.
There used to be a signature here, but it's gone now.

Did you make those textures yourself?
Run around your house and take mad pictures! Then create bumpmaps and stuff, and seam it together!

Deski. Make a room. Color it orange. Put a candle in the middle. Cut up the walls to make a jackolantern face. Put two team spawns in it. Make it knives only.

tada

I made 2 pretty blood spatter patterns that I was planning on using, but you guys can use it too.
VTFs, no VMT.
Just make a VMT for each with LightMappedGeneric, $basetexture, and $translucent.

No, the backgrounds aren't actually white, it's transparent.

I think I'm just gonna mess around with lighting and textures and see if I can get a spooky environment. If I can, then I'll see if I can get a map going

I'm working on a map of this community center a few miles from my house where we have halloween parties in. I'm aiming for festive AND spooky.

You know what's good about this pack? We get all kinds of haloween maps: horror/bloody maps, spooky/party maps, haunted-mansion maps, etc.
Mine's more gonna be a funny, Super Mario-ghost infested castle. I'm just afraid it's gonna be a bigass download since the map consists for 95% of custom textures, and it has a whole set of sounds.

I wouldn't worry it about it, we'll have all the maps and resources bzipped for the server's fast downloads, bzip2 is god.

You're right. People should get used to download mappacks... as it's a lot faster than downloading through Steam.

So who's all creating a map for this? If I'm correct, I think the list so far is:

Mr.Blip
NIPPER
HomicidalApe
AlphaKenny
ayeyah
Ronin ?
mrgrim
and myself

hmm, should make a nice pack :)

I really just created two rooms (one would be a good spawn?) for someone to use, and Ape seemed to have claimed it first.

And quite possibly me, although I decided to start a whole new map, rather than work on the one from two years ago.

When, exactly, do we need these done by? I know Halloween, but we'd probably want them done at least a week early, right?
