I'm going to work in about an hour and won't be back until 10ish. So Ape if Gr¦m and boo post their updates go ahead and upload them to the server. I also need a .res for my two maps and one for bobjones.

Also feel free to generate a nav for boo's map.

We should be good to go and hopefully I can have the mappack on my website by sunday night.

This is what I have for the readme:
Another holiday mappack from the mapmakers of forums.joe.to.

The pack includes:

xmas_j2eve by HomicidalApe
de_icehouse by Bobjones
de_xmas_hotel by Dr.Boo
dm_jolly by mRgRiM
xmas_lodge by NIPPER
xmas_nipperhouse by NIPPER


Mappack logo by mRgRiM, and made the Halloween one too :p
Let me know if I should add anything.

Mind of I upload my map in a few hours? The compilation lasts +/- 1 hour and I have to go out. I can only upload it in a few hours.
Is that a problem?

EDIT: It's a spawnpoint that I forgot to delete... meaning I have 17 T spawns. Is that really a problem?

EDIT: nvm I'll delete and recompile anyways

No problem just please, before you upload, check the map out yourself and make sure all the cubemaps and the textures and all that stuff is good ;)

Sorry, stupid upload site.

10 spawns per team.

Give me some criticism on this, because I can compile this again very quickly.

And I used pakrat on this for the first time, tell me if I did it correctly.

Is a .nav required?

hold on, I just checked it out.

You are missing a texture:

Then you need to place some env_cubemap s in the map. Your map won’t require them to be very precisely placed but you need some to at least get rid of the glowing gun effect.

Create a game (listen server) and in console type "buildcubemaps". Then disconnect, go to your video settings and turn HDR off. Create a game (listen server) and in console type "buildcubemaps" again. Bspzip everything, name your readme.txt dm_jolly.txt and put it in the maps folder. Reupload!

Also, use snowfall instead of snow for func_precipitation. And the 16 spawns per team like I said.

So yeah, I do buildcube maps in console and get this :
Creating default cubemaps for env_cubemap using skybox office...

Do I wait for that to complete or something or do I just go on to the next step.

don't worry about that, it finished. after you see the flashing images in the upper left it's done all it needs to do with buildcubemaps. just do it once with and once without hdr enabled like nipper said. changes won't take effect till you restart cs.

You will immediately see if the buildcubemaps worked or not. The texture should look way better.
I'm uploading my map as we speak. It should be up in 5min 30seconds. Hold on for the link

EDIT: here it is. I checked if the cubemaps were build correctly, checked the textures and models, checked for invalid spawnpoints, etc. The only thing I couldn't do, is add more ammo to the guns in the secret room... too bad :)

Alrighty, try this.

Theres a invalid ct spawn, but when I go to the coordinates, theres nothing there, could It be ignored? All the rest of the 16 ct spawns work.

Gr¦m you didn't build cubemaps!? if you changed the name of the map after you built cubemaps it would fuck things up.

having 15 spawns on ct is ok i guess but if you can fix the invalid one, it should be pretty obvious which one is sticking in a wall, floor, or through another spawn or something.

boo's is a-ok.

Well, the bsp I uploaded had around 24 textures that were named stuff like c982_-18_-34.vtf.

But I guess I'll try again.
