How come as of late, there have been almost no maps showcased for ESF. Have we hit the point where no one really wants to put forth the effort for Half-Life 1 games anymore? What's the deal guys! So many maps for ESF have been absolutely phenomenal, and if compared side-by-side to the default half-life 1 levels would look like they were being run on a different engine!

I know I speak for many when I say that playing in a really cool map is almost more than half the fun.

You can't expect us mappers to map forever, eventually something is going to require our attention, making it nearly impossible to focus on mapping.

I understand that mappers have other things to do than just create maps. However, I was just noticing the fact that there really haven't been any at all lately. DJ-Ready, I'mkongkong, CrazyTaxi, and so many more mappers out there made so many good maps. I just miss seeing new screenshots of works in progress, and looking forward to their release.

I was doing a Korin's Tower map a while ago, but thanks to KongKong!! It'll have to go to the trash can. (I still <3 you kongkong, its just that you hax at mapping) My silly korin's tower map doesn't even compare to the new one..

No offence to the esf team, but ever since open beta got released I just stopped mapping, it kinda spoiled it for me, but I didn't say I entirely quit mapping, I guess laziness also fits in there somewhere ^^

Oh and i'm raeku's manslave so I'll get forced to make a map, you never know, I have a grandkaiplanet map that I made last year, let's just hope it never got deleted when I cleared my desktop, it was a map with grandkai's mansion and the otherworld, I used teleport entity.

Another reason why I halted my mapping is because of the laziness of others *cough* esf-world *cough*, I uploaded many of my maps on there, and not even one of them appeared at the mapping list, I tried that for about a year, I did upload some maps to hl2files.com and they are there, but there are many maps I didn't publicly release because I never had motivation to finish them:(

I'll see what I can scrap together, I might release something, but I can't promise anything, maybe raeku will force me into making something.

You know as well as me that esf-world had a problem with the host. Noone could add files to the site cause the admin controls were broken. Hence why DJ swiched servers with esf-w v6.

but yea. The 1.3 maps are to good to compeat XD Thats why im trying to outfunction them using more entitys (like the destructable buildings thing)

Maybe all us "mappers" should unite, and attempt a new map. One that could compete with these "1.3" maps??

Maybe, for motivation, we should make a mapping competition. And make a poll about the best map.
Dunno about rewards, maybe just for fun.
