Zelda OoT Zombie Escape

    That's right, Zelda is comming to CS:S ZE. If you don't know what Zelda is, shame on you, go play the game(s).

    I started working on this map about a year and a half ago with a friend of mine, Redeye. We both got sick of mapping at one point and decided to stop mapping for a while. A few months ago I started mapping again by myself and have been basically every day now, little by little. I remade everything from scratch because I didn't like what we did back then.

    The map is based off of Ocarina of Time for N64. Music, models, textures and layout is taken directly from the game using various ripping methods and references, many thanks to Redeye for teaching me all of it, I wouldn't be making this map if it wasn't for him. If you've played the game you'll probably feel rather nostalgic when playing the map as It's almost a step into the actuall game, with a few twists and modifications to fit the ZE mod. You'll be playing through all child dungeons, meet Zelda in Hyrule castle, ascend & escape Ganondorfs tower, and have an epic battle with Ganon. 4 stages. Human and zombie items. Bosses. Secrets.

    So far I've mapped all areas and started doing some detailing & addings lights. It may sound like the map is done, but there's still all the work of getting all models, triggers and whatnot to work properly, and I'm not exactly mapping 24/7. I map whenever I feel like it, so I can't really give an estimate on when we'll be testing the map, most likely before summer though. I'll be posting progress I make in this thread.

    Here are some highly requested screenshots of my progress so far, keep in mind that it's still very early progress, anything you see may look completely different in the final version. As said earlier, I'm using original N64 textures to get that N64 feeling, the really horrible ones have or will be replaced with higher resolution however.

          Hey, if you need help with lighting let me know. It's my specialty.

          Add some func_dustmotes to the Kokiri Village for that fairy effect!

          Gorgeous work!

                It will be the most epic map for N64 lovers!

                Looks promising!

                I think what I liked the most in the pictures are the good old low-res textures, which is something I LOVE!
                This gives the good old feeling of the game, meaning you're doing what it deserves! Can't wait to test the map :wink:
                If you ever need help with the modelling, feel free to ask me or Kaem to do it (K. ^)

                ...The temple of time

              • Feb 24, 2011
                I would kill for including the adult-link temples including all the bosses and such! That would be another level of nostalgia-awesome for me.
                Good job anyhow, i'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out. :thumbsup:

                  You just make a ZE_OoT_Part2 map including all the adult parts. It's not like you've got anything better to do anyway.:bomb:

                  Good job, Tony! I was very curious about ingame screenshots and at least my waiting time is over. I saw you using SDK almost every day and wished I could watch you haha ^^
                  Hopefully your map will progress well because I can not wait for the day of the release! These pictures made me nostalgic :jump:
