Hello everybody! Here's a WiP of a map I started like four years ago but never got around finishing it. It is a mixed cargo/container ship with a LOA of 268.5m and an L/B of about 5.5, in other words, it is the ship from COD MW's intro mission. :-D


Much has been done. Here's a list:
-Changed the skybox, lighting, shadows, fog, envsun and waterlogcontrol entities.
-Removed anything related to rain from the previous version (awesome lightning effects etc.)
-Removed many decorative but expensive reflecting decals which used to give that wet effect thus improving performance drastically.
-Made the water moving and also improved the moving clouds. Now the ship gives the impression that it is moving. -Added an envsmockstack which emits an anti SOLAS black smoke. ;)
-Reworked the aft section of the ship in order to be shorter and less vast and empty.
-Shortened the fore superstructure of the ship in order to be less vast and empty.
-Reworked the hull in order to make it more detailed and look more realistic.
-Detailed the fore superstructure in the inside.
-Enriched the soundscape script. The map features a very rich soundscape for its size.
-Tweaked the lights of the map and added a few more, mostly for detail.
-Reorganized func_detail entities to optimize vvis calculations.
-Increased the lightmap scale on many textures which did not require the default 16, thus increasing performance.

Known issues:
-Lots of stuff should have been models. What you see is all brushwork which causes design flaws.
-The fore control room is not properly detailed. I lack the required props for the job.
-I feel like I'm missing something regarding the atmosphere of the map.
-Some areas are too big relative to their usefulness.

Old version in case you wanna see how it started:

Feedback is very much appreciated. If you want more screenshots feel free to ask.

Looks very nice. Love the 1st and 3rd screens. The windows look really cool in the 3rd and the computers look cool in the 1st.
Also know as WILLAM; TechieUK is my old name. If you see WILLAM on Steam or ModDB, it's me.
