You're the size of a doll...
Man, it snowed for the first time this year in my area
tonight... the night I finalized this map. Cool.
Okay, here's how this map came to be.
I was working my regular job with ICQ connected.
Someone named Nixelplix (he goes by DirtyBob on the
INA Forums) contacts me through the ICQ.
The ICQ communication went something like this:
"Hey, I've got a great idea for a map."
"Yeah? Who's this?"
"I'm DirtyBob on the INA forum."
"Okay, maybe I'll map it. What's the idea?"
"A Christmas Map!"
"Yadda yadda yadda..."
"Yadda yadda ya..."
The same day he sent me a nice photograph of a real-life living
room that he thought would be a great layout for the map. I used
it as an eyeball reference for laying out the room. I didn't use
exactly what was in the photograph completely, but it helps to
have a "visual" like that to aid the mapping process.
Me and DirtyBob went back and forth pretty much everyday in ICQ
talking about ideas for this thing. Some ideas in the map are
mine, some his.
I spent about (pause to open calculator) 495 hours mapping,
creating meshes, textures, UV maps... very little sleep (Most
mappers can easily understand the time thing. Say, "amen.".)
During this time I was still multitasking trying to finalize
Deck17 and working on my first
map for the
Hive Mod. Craziness.
I think DirtyBob probably spent as much time beta-testing this
Anyway, I made what I consider to be a very good friend (DirtyBob)
from the building this map. That's always a good thing.
A CTF version will follow. I've got to take care of some other
maps I'm working on, so it will either have to wait or it will
have to be multitasked into my mix of crap. Then maybe a BR and
DOM version this map if there is enough interest.
Hope you enjoy the map.
Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas!!!
