Mirrors are 100% impossible in HL. That much I know. And if anybody brings up the example from the single player game, yes they did have a mirror, but it was an illusion. It was a hole in the wall with a model of gordon on the other side which was programmed to match your movements.

Yeah, HL can have mirror effects, but the way they do it is how Karrde said.
What would the unbreakable glass map be of? A map would look pretty weird if it each and every wall was all the same texture and opacity of glass. And you would get lost pretty quick if there weren't any distinguishing features in it. :p

Also regarding mirrors, in case you're thinking of trying it, it wouldn't work in a multiplayer map, and if it did, it would lag everything to pieces keeping track of everything like that.

@ Karrde: sorry, but I cant remember any mirror effect in the official HL-SP! Are you sure this had been in the sp?
If, then please tell me which level, cuz Ive never seen it!

Captaincabbage, don't bring threads off topic. And your questions qualify as spam. If ppl have information about maps they're making, they'll post it of their own volition, not at your request.

As for the mirror effect, I think it was somewhat early on in a bathroom, or office, or something. It wasn't in a main area, just in some silly side place where there wasn't much of anything.

Well whatever, point being, thats how they did it, it was an illusion :p And this tactic wouldn't be possible in multiplayer probably.

It was in Blue Shift I believe. It was a mirrored floor which projected the illusion of a scientist walking across it.

now some people can find it but i was a player on bfp for those who know what that is and so their was a map that had a simple mirror that reflected you and well i wanted to ask if it is possible to estract the mirror from the bfp map and take to and make many many coppies of the single mirror to make this map and a reason i think this wouldnt lag i mean all the actions it might BUT their is achance and its up with the people if they want to play but hey who wouldnt like a all mirror map it would be like a fun map cause u can type i see u and but all the way on the other side and the size should be like cell cause that would be easy and its average well hope i help cause i cant do anything right also this is the site for that one map ill tell u which one ill respond right back just i need to find it first so
