View Full Version : Model [Request] Drilling platform

07-13-2009, 12:08 AM
Can anyone make me a drilling platform with a base dimension 464 units by 496 units that looks something like the picture I attached aprox 700 units high. I dont want the extra support off the side though just the 4 posts going up and add a wheel like some of valves mining props use at the top. The standard valve wood prop textures would be great with it.

If the request isn't filled in 2 weeks (after my trip), I'll gladly do it. But I'm running out of time atm.

A few Q...Is this a detail model? Will players move around or inside of it? Is it associated with gameplay, or is this a skybox model?

It will sit above the final cap point where the explosion will be so yes people will be moving in and around it. I didnt even think of that when I posted :)

Wouldn't it be easier to use brushes? A model that big would basically function the same as a func_detail, except with lighting issues.

Also, if it's made of brushes, then you could make it so that when the cp explodes, parts of it could go flying everywhere

I have one made from brushes now although it looks a bit odd lol.

i would take a shot at it but, my laptop is going in for repair so I wouldn't have the opportunity, sorry :(. Although to be honest if you wanted to teach yourself the design is rather basic.
