NO, I wanna do it! :sunny: It has to be the same style.
I might pitch in a map, but I don't know.

The .j2 Abstract Map Pack is the final name for it? Or what?

Do you want to go with that, or do I try again.

Ahahaha that's hilariously awesome. Maybe mess with the font a little more?

As for me? God damn I'm lazy.

I like the logo. But I would take a more "neutral" color instead of the dark red part.
Just a quick question here: when you place and build a cubemap in a certain room, will it reduce lag? I'm asking because in the first screenshot I posted, there is some lag, while it's not that full. But I haven't placed and built a cubemap there yet.

no it won't. I could even argue that not using cubemaps is easier on the engine because it just uses one default cubemap for everything. But either way, no it won't help.

Now that's annoying... maybe I should remove the cattails. I really wonder why the fukk that part is lagging. I made much more complex rooms in de_xmas_hotel, and they didn't lag.

mat_wireframe 3 (or was it 2?), and walk around and check your VIS.

If it's a central or main part of the map, chances are it lags cause from there, VIS can see most other parts of the map. If that's the case, hint brushes might help. Conversely, your xmas map had no outdoor environment, and was a series of snaky hallways and rooms, right? Snaky maps = less of the map visible from any one point. So it's not the detail in any given area (though it might be), but mainly how much of the map is visible to the engine from that area.

In any case, I guarantee you, sprite or prop cattails won't lag you nearly as much as inefficient layout or brushwork.

I know the maps don't have to end in "hhh" but I couldn't help it. I'm naming my map "yeayuhhh" because the "yeayuh" sound is probably my favorite one. So you can expect to hear it someplace.
