I'm sort of done with some of the maps above, but I don't know where and how to upload them. Some of them have custom textures. They are just separate maps, so I have not put them together in a hub. If someone is working on a larger city, feel free to add these maps if you like!

Send them to PlanetVampire.com - they have a sign-up and upload section.

I would also say give the Attachments option on my forum a try, but if it's a large file, I'm not sure how the forum will handle it. I think i got rid of the file size limitations, but haven't tested large file attachments on the forum here.

Alright. Here are two of the maps together with their custom textures. Prince's Apartment requires the Maps of the Ages pack or BlueOrb prop pack.

If anyone uses them in their projects I would appreciate if you'd mention me in the credits :)

And here's the maps of the Cemetery. Requires Blue Orb's props + Baton Rouge props, or Maps of the Ages pack.

Sorry. I've been working & playing a bit lately. I'll make time to try this out and even post news up on the FB page. ;)

Oh, no worries. It's not like the maps will be going anywhere :) I'm just happy to have gotten them off my chest..

A little update to the Prince Apartment map; added resting sarcophagus, vault and some "beautification", aligned textures, etc.

Ok, here's another work in progress of mine: a medical clinic.

Very nice!  Never thought about adding windows to those lab doors.  I especially like the morgue.

That poor wall... :(
Title: Re: Work in progress
Post by: Shapeshifter878 on 2014-08-11, 01:59:31
Thanks. Yeah, the morgue was the first I did and then it kind of grew :)

If anyone has some advice on how to make the maps better, let me know!
Title: Re: Work in progress

Nice work.

As for advice; More interaction can always make a map better. Like being able to open the refrig's, cabinets, and lockers. Having npcs do walk cycles can also help bring the map to life. I'd also recommended doing a Quick Object Export after every Full Export since it tends to help light sources cast on props better. Useful for when using special effect lighting like the flickers. Flicker lights often wont cast lighting onto most props unless you did a quick object export.

Thanks for the input. I'll keep the suggestions in mind.

Here's a another update for the Prince Apartment(I had forgot to include the class-file for the custom Sarcophagus):

Hi all,
Haven't had the time to work on the medical clinic for a long while, but now, armed with a new computer, I'm doing some finishing touches so I finally can make it available for download. Some NPC's have been added as well as a little more interactivity, plus an elevator.
