pvk_grandcastle

After yesterdays brainshortage and trying to get ideas to improve desertarena greatly i figured it would be easier to just start over instead of editing the existing map.

So pvk_castle will be a big castle complete with a throne room, several floors to run around on, prison in the basement etc etc.

I am currently working on the entrance and inside that will be the great hall that will have two floors and the throne room.

I will update with screenshots as soon as i get further.

Here is a REALLY EARLY WIP screenshot to get an idea on how it will look like.
This is the base i have worked on this morning, now i will trim it up and make it look nice happy.gif
Looking from the entrance into the first big hall.
Straight ahead the entrance to the throne room will be.
Upper left and right will continue straight ahead and will be the upper area of the throne room so you can look down.
There will also be some connected rooms to the upper throne room.
Below each of the stair set there are entrances that will connect to more rooms.

Took a screenshot to show what i am working on right now, to the left is what i started with as shown in the first screenshot.
To the right is what i have fixed so far.

    If you're going to remake the pvk1 castle map for source, remember what I said about it being dev-quality.

    One thing (and some will go "what's up with this guy and his pillars") that strikes me when glancing at the picture in the first post is that the pillars should be the other way around. Makes more sense to have the heavy block in the bottom of the pillar and the lighter at the top.

    Just a thought.

    I changed the pillars yesterday so nothing to worry about, i would be mapping today but im so tired and my back hurts so im not sure i will do anything today.

    Add some wooden beams to cover up the edges near the concave roof part. Possibly some wooden arches also. The knight room on island is a good example.

    Did a small update to the first post with two new screenshots, i will continue on to the throne room now and see how these two rooms connects and tweak them from there.

    *edit*
    I just fixed the carpets so they go into each other, looks much better.
