New L4D2 campaign I'm working on

Postby Snowbat on Thu Aug 23, 2012 8:38 am

I'm currently working on my second L4D2 campaign which is supposed to take place in some snowy environement.
I prefer not to reveal too much about it (I want to avoid a case of overhyped stuff like some other L4D mappers did) but it would be nonetheless cool to have the feedback from UKCS members who play L4D2.
I'm far from having a playable beta though. Making a full L4D2 campaign is a lot of work.
Anyway, here are some screenshots. The campaign will go from sunny afternoon to dusk to full nighttime.
Map 1, afternoon
Map 2, dusk
Map 2, hydro power plant in the dusk

Yeah well I'll probably only be able to show some gameplay once the campaign is good enough for a beta... and that's not for soon I'm afraid :) I mean, my previous L4D2 campaign took 13 months to finish just to give an idea

It's improving, but it's a slow process. I like to be perfectionist with this. Right now, I'm making a snowy old town and it's taking a long time to create all the houses.
The past few days I've been experimenting with a little tool that lets you convert complex Hammer brushwork into models. This should greatly help optimization and help reduce the memory usage of my map.

I'll keep you guys updated :)
