Richard Jones' Log: What I've been up to lately
For the last month or so, I've been tooling around with creating maps for the Counter-Strike: Source mod for Half-Life 2. I enjoy playing the game a lot*, and figure creating a map couldn't be too hard.
Designing a map, that's easy. Creating the initial version, that's easy (really, it took me about an hour of planning and then an hour to create the structure and be testing it with bots). Putting in all the bells and whistles (props, sounds, bot nav hints, 3d skyboxes, ...) that's a lot of work.
But I made it! Yay me :)
*: I've found a good server with nice people on it who don't put up with the antisocial behaviour that's prevalent on most servers. That changes the whole online gaming experience.
