From Adventure Time, has always been my favorite character. It’s one of my wife’s favorite as well! So I had the idea to create this for her Birthday. Just as a side not: BMO is missing its legs and arms ;).
I’ve spent an incredible amount of time on this map(500+ hrs). I started the process fairly slow back in October 2014, and finally got rolling quickly once January of 2015 rolled around. The hardest part for me, was learning how to map for half-life 2. I was a mapper back with counter-strike beta (De_Tibet), and on a mod team for a game called black hawk down(NerfSniper). The learning curve wasn’t too bad, and there were a lot of new features implemented into the new hammer that original half-life didn’t have.
This map contains a lot of custom textures, and features several game modes: Ambush, Firefight, Push and checkpoint(co-op). The map begins with a rural outside town entry for security.
There are three large sections of this map, the first is a street fight to secure a convoy. The second section has a lot of open terrain mixed with a small market. The third area is a dense city with a large mosque centered.
I Hope you enjoy the map, like I’ve enjoyed created it!
I began this idea, because of another wall mounted computer I saw. You don’t see these done too often due to the work involved.
The first thing I did was decide if I wanted to mount it onto solid wood or plywood. The ones I’ve seen, did plywood then vinyl wrapped the plywood with a carbon fiber vinyl.
I ended up doing Solid wood. I purchased a piece of 3/4″ pine board, then I added another 1/2″ pine board along the borders so all the wires had someplace to hide while it sat flush with the wall. I removed all of my computer components and traced them onto the board where I wanted them to be.
