This was so helpful for me. I'm hoping to adapt your tutorial to pull off something similar comparing modern satellite imagery with historical maps. No topo, so my steps should be simpler, but I'm a novice with Blender and you've really helped. Thanks!

Even Top Notch Artists will be replaced by AI. You have no idea what you are talking about. If you do, only very superficial. At the end you are only an employee. You dont have any contact or experience to the High End Echelons we worked on. In 20 years, 40% of workforce working today will be out of jobs. First we will get worldwide financial crash, then AI takes over. Admin will remember my words in not distance future.

Half-Life 2 Map Contest: Submit your Level!
20 July, 2015

There’s a great opportunity to show your level design skills in the newest contest by RunThinkShootLive.com.


The task is pretty straightforward. You need to create a a resistance station in the Half-Life universe.

The exact gameplay objective will be the decision of the mapper. The objective could be simply finding the station while being chased by the Combine, defending the base from attack, or attacking the station as the Combine.
The station must be the central theme of the map and the player should be able to explore its various parts.
In terms of its location, that’s entirely up to the mapper. It could be partly underground and partly above, it could be a series of town houses connected via tunnels or a dam. The choice is in the mapper’s hands.
Ideally, there would be some hard to reach sections of the station that require the player to explore.
The player should feel that this base has been around for a while, but it should also be clear that the rebels have made the best of a bad situation and not built something from scratch. Don’t make this a newly built fortification – make it a re-purposed area/building/location.


The deadline for the project submission is August 3, 2015. So you still have 19 more days to go, or just 3 weekends. You can check out the rules on their website. The prizes are pretty basic so don’t expect $10K to be wired into your account, but you should be ready for some cool Steam games.
