    Yo guys,

    The map's name may be changed, but who cares :) ...
    This is the first time I'm creating such a theme (since its abit different from my 1.6 cobkz_neon), so I'll appreciate any feedback! (for now, only the visuals)

    I personally didn't like that map at all, it was sort of a test to see what the standards and expectations are. + everybody said it needs tweaks here and there and it just never happened after the 2nd update. Maybe it will see an update in the future, but surely not soon as I will focus only on this current one.
    Anyway, atleast 5-6 people told me to port cobkz_neon to kzgo and I will .. just not now :)
    Thanks for the good words guys, if you have anything more to say about certain rooms(improvements etc), feel free please :D

    idk if these are displacements or not but they should be, they look more like brushwork, but in any sauce game, the way to go for any sort of terrrain is displacements.[​IMG]
    also those lights on the wall look like blobs of light (on the white wall) you should probably do something about that

    some super special hot from the oven george displacement tips:
    • make the edges of the brushes the displacements use match up so you can "sew" them.
    • make sure each individual displacement is not too large, displacements "spread" the vertices across their area, so cut them up if they aren't already.
    • subdivide is your friend, for anything smooth, after connected all the edges and vertices, use subdivide to create a smooth area as a base for caves, its all up to your discretion how you use and make use of subdivide so be creative.
    • use whatever method you please to shape any displacements with or without subdividing them, i prefer using "paint geometry" you can use alt-right click to change the direction of the normal you are using to the currently selected vertex, this is useful for creating shit, but many people like to use and also swear by the carving tools which I have never used and probably never will. I guess it's personal preference.
    you coulda googled all these tips, or most people could tell you, but im bored and feeling helpful

    Thank you guys! I did watch ~2 tutorials about displacements, but I didn't bother too much with the whole 'cave' room (since i was ok with it). Will take care of it np :)
