Update Log:

==================== Alpha .2.5 ====================

I’ve made the variants for the drawbridge and vent. The vent’s working perfectly fine, but I did have to switch the drawbridge to the PTI model to work with portals correctly. I’ve got the timings pretty close, it really shouldn’t mess with any maps. I made a diff of all the changed files for this patch… -TeamSpen210

  • Added descriptions with authorship for all Valve, BEEMOD and HMW’s items.
  • Added more filters for ^ items, putting them into groups
    • Test Elements – Laser emitters, cubes, pellet catchers etc
    • Panels – including doors, Geometry – light strips, obs rooms, goo, glass
    • Logic – triggers, both logic gates, portal helpers
    • Custom – really new things like vents, crushers, reflection gel, pellets and paint fizzlers.
  • Added packer commands for all the custom content.
  • A heap of changes to the logic and other things in the drawbridge.
  • Added a grating to the Old Aperture bridges, to provide an explanation for why gel on the bottom side isn’t useable.
  • Fixed a few “leaks” in instances like obs rooms, lasers and some of the entry/exit corridors so VBSP optimises away the 128*128*4 backpanels and squarebeams brushes if they aren’t needed to seal the map (Gets rid of the large room around the observation room).
  • Added the quiet styles back for the styles that already have the instances (not for P1 or Art Therapy).
  • Retextured old frame instances so they properly line up together.
