Your generic "middle of nowhere" map. It's been in on-and-off development for way too long. I'm finally going to finish it up now.

I figure I'll call it esf_nowhere. Fitting enough, eh? The bottom of the map scrolls, so it looks like dust is flying by. It looks pretty cool when you're standing down below, but I can't really capture it in a screenshot so you'll just have to wait and see. =p

Anyway, all that I'm trying to fix up now are those annoying invisible walls that pop up sometimes that you can fly through but can't walk through (DJ knows what I'm talking about >_<). There's only a few, but as soon as I fix one, another one shows up. Meh.

I rarely comment on maps, but this one looks somewhat different than most. Nothing fancy, just nice. My only beef would be to recolor the skybox to fit the ground color.

Maybe make the sand a bit more yellow, like a real desert/beach type of sand, I think that would look very nice. Or maybe up the illumination a little.

Looks very secksi so far, I'd love to try it out once it's finished. :3

Ah, good idea, Karrde. I touched it up a bit so it more closely matches the color of the map.

<a href="http://img474.imageshack.us/my.php?image=nowhere013tg.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://img474.imageshack.us/img474/9899/nowhere013tg.th.jpg" border="0" alt="Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us" /></a>

I fixed as many problems I could find, so I guess she's ready to go. I uploaded it to ESF-World, so it should be available for download soon.

Could use a bit more touchup, but it's much smoother.

I'm gonna download this map as soon as possible, can't wait! ;)

Ah, that's what's going on. I saw DJ in #esf-world for a bit, then he disappeared and I haven't seen him for quite awhile. =E

Well, I could rapidshare it, but I want ESF-World to get all the traffic because I <3 them so much.

Haha, I'll keep that in mind. I could just see it now:

*bar doors fly open, Goku comes out*
Piccolo: Pardner, this town ain't big enough for tha two of us!

XD

Meh... seeing as ESF-World hasn't even been updated since Christmas, and it's disappointingly impossible to get ahold of anyone through any means of communication, here's a RapidShare link for those that want to download the map.

12MiB... I think that makes this the biggest map in terms of filesize I've ever made. o_o
It's due to the .wad being larger than normal, as I added quite a few things later on that use different textures.

If ESF-World decides to update, I can send them the package again if they need it, but I have no way of knowing when that will be. =/

DragonDude, have you forgotten i can provide mirror links as well. Why do you guys always forget that i am also able to post mirror links? *shrugs*, i'm really sad now guys :(.. But i'll upload this map to HL2Files.com + on my FTP, so it would help you guys a little more. ;)

Here is one mirror. Instantly, and fast.
