Remake / Reimagining.
After losing my HDD and everything I had done towards my previous map I decided to completely ditch serva and move onto remaking Hera, at the moment I'm just working out the theme and almost everything at this point is subject to change but I just wanted to throw this out and see what people think for the moment. Also I talked with merkaba and he suggested that I don't do a complete remake and try to make the map more 'my own' and I've tried to do that.

Anyway it's just a few screenshots, still working on the theme and lighting (thanks remedy btw).

Everything is still W.I.P. and is likely to change as I work out the layout.

    The hallway looks a bit dark, but everything else is beautiful. Keep up the good work, I loved Hera in NS1!
    Calling me Super Anus Boy is both funny and original. You're so clever. Do it all the time.

    beautiful! I love this clean theme.

    Now that marines need a second techpoint to get their advanced tech, do you think the original layout (on any old ns1 map) could be a problem? ( I guess marines used to occupy a hive in ns1 anyway in most cases so maybe not an issue now that i think about it).

    Looking forward to seeing how this map progresses. Hard to imagine it without the elevator though.

    One of my favorite maps.

    Looks amazing already. Putting your own spin on things is great, People love the old but love shiny new things too.
    It already has that familar feel but everythings new again. Keep it up.

    I know it looks a bit dark but these are just editor shots and as such it looks slightly darker than in-game. I'll post some in-game shots when I've completed the marine spawn.

    Never liked hera as a map, but that clean style looks pretty damn nice. Hopefully theyll get around to adding smoothing groups though, to fix that lighting.

    I knew you would do a good job of this. It looks exceptional. First two shots are some of the best in Spark yet

    Yeah I know, there are a few changes that are going to happen to the layout but they are unavoidable.

    That's one of the few things I'm trying to get right, since the original Hera has quite a few stand out and unique areas (In my opinion) compared to most ns1 maps, it's going to be a bit of a challenge to stick to that while changing the layout and theme.

    Looks great, but make it yellow! :) Hera just wouldn't be the same without the yellow vs. dark red color scheme.

    There'd better be a clorf for the lork or there will be trouble :P




    Good stuff, this is the very first map I played on. Good to see it being recreated in such a awesome visual style!

    Thought I was looking at doom 3 for a moment.


    That's exactly what I was aiming for, I've changed the theme a slight bit and updated the lighting.

    For the moment I'm still trying to sort out the visual style.

    just one thing, can you change the "sun" light color I'm tired of the orange light seen in most maps, can we get a purple,blue or cyan lighting coming from a "sun" or "moon"?
    I can help you with the sky box textures if needed.

    PS. I recommend using Dropbox for file backups, very handy!

    Feels like you could put kitchen in there and pass health inspection any time.

    No 5 second rule on this map.

    I loved the old Hera, I hope you make epic Hera reception as well as "elevator" hallway with weldable lights.

    The clean looks great! Great contrast vs. infestation!

    Now, the commander can, and infact only can, build his own structures. Marines can now upgrade their own weapons. The result is that in effect, the Commander and the Marines are now playing two seperate games. Synergy has been replaced with disunity. If Commanders don't need their Marines as much, they won't communicate with them as much, and vice versa.

    Reception is the one area I am honestly looking forward to building, that and Data Core Delta. Maintenance and maintenance corridor I'm going to try and keep to it's original look and feel.

    This map needs to be finished by tomorrow, possibly today if possible.

    I wish, kinda of had to stop for a little while due to personal issues but I'm getting back into it and should have a grey boxed version out at least on steamworks soon, though the layout will have changed ever so slightly and I'm still tweaking the theme a little at the moment trying not to have it look too much like docking.

    If and when you do a video preview, make sure you put the doom theme song in the background :D

    It's worth sitting at the menu screen on Doom 3 just to hear that full song alone, and I'll possibly be doing a video preview at some point or another.
