I don't know if this is done before (but cannot be found on esf-world.com nor esfstuff.com anyways) Can somebody do a South City map? With those dome shaped houses and "buildings of the future" around the city...I'll find some ref pics later...

Good luck making a nice looking dome without sacrificing too much r_speeds.

Well, it's not impossible.
I think Crazy Taxi made a map of a city from DBZ a long time ago, I don't remember what it was called though, I never got it.

That map was ESF_Storm_V1 by, I think, DJReady. I don't think it is on ESF-World, but I still have it. :p

It was by B0bMaster4000 (or 40000). It was a laggy map though, still, the storm effect was nice.

I had/played that map before...but the problem is like what XXShadowXX said...the r_speed was very bad and it lags like crazy when you play...one question though...remember the 3 houses in esf_guru?? how come they doesnt make the map laggy and stuff and they are kinda dome shaped too?

The Namekian houses? They're models, so they add to epoly instead of wpoly.

lag has to do with ping, not with FPS (thats what low pc's have, low FPS) or am i wrong? since i have various games and i can put the graphics really low or really high i dont notice any differnce in the Ping but i do notice the differnce in the FPS (high = fps of 80, low = fps of 400 =D)

anyways....maybe guru map doesnt lag as wel, since u can walk through them, or atleats i can X_x

Maybe I shouldn't have said "lag" because your movement is very slow even when I was playing lan games with that map...I donno much about mapping though...but I'll see if I can get that storm map so I can tell u guys what I meant...

its true, esf_storm wasnt laggy O_O I used to play it quite a bit, and it never lagged for me =| and i have an Athlon XP 1900 at default clock speed and a GeForce FX 5200 :| and it didnt even lag when i had my Athlon 1700XP and GeForce 2 MX o_o it didnt lag at all!!!!
But i dont understand why the dome would create lag. But just so im sure, is South City the place Capsule Corp is at? Then why not make a map similar to ape_city and that eea city map?

this map looks nice indeed, but half-life is just not capable of such a detailled map -_-
its half-life ...

He summed it up, you are never going to make a map that detailed and playable in half-life. I would suggest downloading esf_storm, that's as close as your going to get unless someone makes it.
