RTSL Graffiti

I am very pleased to announce that some exclusive RTSL graffiti has been created by Monkeymo and I would like to thank him for all his hard work.

We worked together to get exactly what I was looking for but he did all the work. After some feedback from the modders over on the official The Hammer Cup 2017 SMC Discord channel a grunge/grimmy feel was settled on.

Crowbar converted the images into VTF (files that can be used by modders) and made the demonstration map, from which the image below have been taken and I would like to thank him too.

The graffiti is available for use by any mapper and no entry to any mapping challenge is obligated to use them. They can be used in any non-commercial Source release but a credit to Monkeymo and RTSL MUST be included.

In future, I may offer a small prize (or even extra points if the judges agree) for clever use or placement of the graffiti in maps entered into mapping challenges.

Venatura

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Staring in a lift with Alyx, you find yourself in what at first seems an abandoned cliff-side village.

Obviously, things aren’t what they seem.

Can you survive until the ultimate encounter?

Only time will tell.

The Future of RTSL Hosting

A couple of days ago I work up to find the site offline.

It’s a horrible feeling, especially if you don’t have time to fix it before leaving for work or worse, having to wait for somebody to do something before you can do something else.

This fairly brief post will explain the result of that outage.

June 2017 General Chat

What a start to June!
As you probably saw, the site was down for all of yesterday and for that I apologise. I want to make it clear that it was NOT Nodecraft’s fault and I fully support them. I will be moving hosts very soon and will explain properly soon.

I hope to start livestreaming again soon, maybe even this weekend and I am dying to get back to mapping.

I think the Steam Summer sale starts soon, so I’ll no doubt be buying some games for my collection.

What plans do you have for June?

Beacon

“A teleporter mishap deposited Gordon deep within Black Mesa’s engineering levels.

Unfortunately the high powered machinery was acting as homing beacon for incoming vortigants.

Can Gordon find another teleporter before it’s too late?”

The Hammer Cup 2017 – Challenge 3 Dates

Hi Everybody,

Just to let you know that challenge 3 of The Hammer Cup 2017 is going to start Wednesday 31st May 2017 at 11am Central European Summer Time.

I will be posting the theme details along with the regular rules then.

For this challenge, there will be a compulsory email format submission, along with an optional chapter image format, details of both will be in the post.

Standard rules will apply.

I will answer any questions you have except those related to the theme.

If any mapper is interested in creating a bonus map for the challenge, please let me know. You WILL NOT get to learn of the theme early but you will be allowed to submit your map later than the entrants. You WILL NOT receive any points either.

Starting Sunday, I will begin a tease countdown on the RTSL twitter account.

Thanks for reading and remember, finishing Half-Life is just the beginning!

Oh, BTW, no the header image contains NO information, clues, hints about the theme, so don’t try to guess!
