I really can't because SED3.5 crashes my PC when I try to run an official map.

Maybe you should figure out why and maybe there is a solution for that problem.

Yeah, like, you could go on Steam Community Hub and post your logs for the devs to see.

Apparently the solution to that problem is "upgrade my 5 years old home PC", which is too expensive for me.

Everything is good, I have ideas, but do not know how to realize it. I do not know how to create my own textures and models to use them in the map :/ Can someone advise something?

For textures you can eather make your own in PS if you're good at it or search google for the kind of textures you need. When you find the ones you like just put them in the folder of your map or wherever you keep your stuff and convert then to .tex files by using the editor to do so.

As for the models you eather make them in a different software like blender, Zbrush etc. or you use the Mesh/Model editor inside of SED and make your own models there which is what I prefer. Exept if you are planing on making characters then I definitly suggest using a different software. Good luck!

You should extend the deadline as well then.

I don't understand, if using official announcements and whatnot people didn't join in 11 days after the main post, what makes you think all of a sudden a wave of people will come in only because you made a post where the registration date got extended for 9 more days?

Personally I think you should save this contest for a better time, this is clearly not the best time and people are not gonna join because there's only 3 contestants, unless by magic or by interest people pop in.

Yes, but then what about the people who already started working and did much for their entries?

Hmm I don't know yet. I kinda wanted this to be a thing that would take everyone's notice. Even involving Croteam somehow, maybe as judges.

Also, as a thing to help those people who wanted SS4 instead of Talos.

To be honest I really wasn't expecting it to go that far, as I said, you should just save it for another time, this is clearly not the time.

You only have 4 people right now, doesn't make much sense at all to only disqualify one of them and let the others win.

What if we turn it into just a project, with no winners? Or everyone being a winner?

Hmm, but would go against the premise of building a campaign out of the winner maps.

Why do you want to build a campaign out of it anyways?

To be fair it seems to me that you also don't know what to do with this anymore either.

Because that was the premise. Building the spiritual sequel to Portals, while also doing a contest, that was planned to be done for a few months now.

Originally it was going to be a Talos mapping contest, there are almost no Talos mappers whatsoever.

But what is the spirit of Portals? Does Noam have a gameplay video of it?


Also why not make it for HD TSE? Then maybe more people will join plus HD already have some outworldly textures I think.

SSHD is much more restricted though,hence why i dont like mapping for it much.
