Dm_ortho For HL2DM Released!
Hey everybody, here is my latest mapping effort for you all to enjoy.

dm_ortho was named boringly enough for the orthographical windows in any map editor, but ended up taking a painfully ironic meaning, as I went to the ER at 4 in the morning for extreme dental pain a few weeks ago.

SPLAT 
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GG 
What 
it is green 
 
I like shot #3 
Not Had A Chance Yet... 
But I predict there will be a few minor flaws of some OTT red lighting, slightly underused blue lighting near a teleport entrance, an off-centered teleport exit and a slightly too dark upper level.

Aside from that I predict it will be jolly good with a good layout, nice designs, and good weapons balance and that the "new" corridor will be an excellent improvement.

I also predict I will still suck if I try to play HL2DM :P

Ummmm yeah anyway, well done for getting it done!

Getting 404 on all links 
 
Blitz got upset ande killed it 
Yeah 
its 404 now 
 
Screenies are rather dark! Looking sexy tho! Nice lights. Too bad i don't have HL2 :/ 
Huh 
screenies look cool! Too bad I don't have a comp that could run HL2, or money currently to buy one.

Well, actually they're 404 for me. :P

Hehe 
ok blitz, I derailed this effectively enough...

seriously, what do you guys think?

I played this map on a lan with a friend yesterday, and it played rather well for 1on1 (looked nice too!). Do you guys think it could be adopted for tournament play? I'm no veteran of HL2DM, but from what I understand, the scene is deficient in high-quality custom maps...

just my 2c 
What They Said... 
Seriously though, although I think you should have made the last few tweaks (although for some reason it seems a bit less gloomy this morning), overall it is a really good map. The second best reasonably sized HL2DM map I've seen after Overflow - when I was going through my massive HL2DM custom map download spazz attack, I'd have been very relieved to find something like this.

I don't see any reason why this shouldn't be in regular play - including tournament play.

Oh and again, well done for getting a good map made. Respect. 
Maginot Line? 
did you use that as the inspiration? 
No 
[in reply to bambuz] 
Woot 
well this is rather good level. it has right hl2 feel. jump pad was made rather realistic so it didn't remind q3 ;) i still don't understand the purpose of the structure. it didn't look like some sewer or something, there was no strong consistensy, but overall it added some abandoned industrial feeling which should be enough for general hl2 fan. also, it should play well in 1v1 mode i think: alot of narrow corridors and nice camping spots.
blitz u rock, keep on levelediting and your next map will be proper hl2 sp, i know it ;)

Bump For Public Server Availablity 
You can now play my map here 195.20.108.12:27025

The server is in the UK, so that's a plus for the good majority of you British Isle func_ers.

To vote the map into play, type 'listmaps' in the console and then 'votemap dm_ortho' or if it has a corresponding number, votemap # (I forget already)

Cheers.
