Long ago in the year 2013, I found a place outside a J2 map that contained a portrait labelled "NIPPER" against a wall with dev textures saying WALL 128.128. I've spent the past 6 hours noclipping in Gmod trying to find it and I can't do it. I took a screenshot of the room a very long time ago, but I still can't figure out which map it was. My last resort was to ask the community that made these amazing maps for help. So, does anyone recognize which map this is on?

I have never seen anything like that before and it's not like nipper to use dev textures (except I think j2 restart?). It's also unlike nipper to put his name on a texture like that. He always signs his maps with the block letters.

Maybe it's the lighting, but that wall texture looks red, and the only source game I know of that has red dev textures is TF2, so maybe we can at least narrow down the search a little bit.

My TF2 maps are quickcap, trains, and I think I did one more? And I know it's not those.
For TF2 maps, that leaves nipper's tf2 maps (not sure if its a complete list), maps with j2_ in the name, and maps with sf_ in the name. Unfortunately I don't remember the specific names of all those maps, especially the j2 ones but maybe it will narrow your search a little bit.

You can also look for maps made by other j2 people (dr boo, homicidalape, ayeyah, AlphaKennyOne, ammo, i think kod has a map out there, and I can't think of anyone else). My gut feeling says this is a Dr. Boo map, but he also hated dev textures so maybe not.

My gut says it looks like it's possibly from the Hairy House map, but yeah, probably more likely from one of our other regular's maps.

@MrBlip, I'm almost certain that it was from one of the Halloween map packs, but I'm not sure as to which one. If it's not this, it would be one of the abstract map packs. I know that one day I was noclipping and saw a small room very, very far under the map off to the side, so it's nothing that's directly underneath the main areas. It would be very far down. Also, is there any way to ask these guys if they know anything about that room?

@Hellboy, I checked Hairy House and did not see it.

The authors are likely to be AlphaKennyOne, Dr.Boo, ayeyah, or HomicidalApe. I'm heavily leaning towards Dr. Boo. You can try contacting them here at j2, but there's no guarantee they'll answer. I've lost touch with all of them and don't know how to get ahold of them outside of j2.

I sent some PM's to people, but I didn't get a response yet. I guess I'll just have to wait.

perhaps the nippermaps@gmail.com address is still in use? Saw it on some mapping website a long time back.

As far as I know Dr. Boo is no longer a J2 user so I would not try contacting him.

EDIT: also, this is totally from a tf2 map. The blue dev texture on the floor (and probably the wall texture, considering it is red) are tf2 exclusive textures.

I have just realized that the adjacent images in my screenshot folder were taken less than 5 minutes apart and are on a TF2 map.

I don't know if this is a J2 map or not, but I suspected it was because of the Nipper image. I suspect that these are in the same map as the original screenshot I posted.

Nevermind. The mystery has been solved. The map was actually a custom TF2 map called duel_idle_trade_abstract and had nothing to do with J2.

Thanks for all the help. And sorry to bother.

It seems arbitrary to have a map not made by Nipper/someone in J2, that features a room giving credit to him. Maybe it's someone with the same username.

Wait, you mean you're NOT George Harrison?

I took a screenshot of it back in 2013 and completely forgot where it was from. It just bugged me so hard that I couldn't remember which map it was. I didn't know if it was one of those secret gallery rooms or something. I also tried to do a Google search of it and nothing came up. Very sad. But after 30 seconds in PowerPoint, I came up with this.

I feel extremely embarrassed. Hours of my life have been wasted. And sorry for wasting your time as well.

My quest for the "sooper seecrit room" has ended in shame. I really need to get off of Garry's Mod.
