Stranded: Tropical Islands

Now with all sounds, models and textures not standard to vanilla Source Engine included!

Tropical Islands is a map for the Stranded Gamemode, but you could use it for general build areas if you want to (How could you not, with such eye candy?).

Designed with the Stranded gamemode from the start, this map has been created with 4 separate areas to help reduce lag created by many players and props in the same visual field.

Within the map, there are 5 different worlds that you can move between using an in-map teleportation system. The starting point of which is the third picture.
These worlds include a giant Atol with a volcano, a island with ruins on it and a more general Stranded island that most experenced Stranded players will be familiar with.
Along with these 3 worlds are two seperate areas. The first of which is an antlion area for hunting in the Stranded gamemode, the second is a secret area with 3 secret entrances spread across the other worlds.

Admins: You will still need to place Antlion mounds, as the map doesn't include them.

Features Overview:

Updated bits:
1. Populated with beautiful trees and rocks.
2. Updated with new custom Skybox and HDR lighting!
3. Pusher away from spawn area so teleport jamming doesn't occur.
4. Ambient sound in all areas including distant wave noise and light wind.
5. Prop destroyer in teleport room to eliminate teleport blocking.

Admins: You will need to add the trees and bolders to your stranded model list so that they will work. Ether open up the map in BSPScape or use in-game tools to find the model names and paths.

Thanks to:
Shistra, for Beta testing.
Korpse, for Beta testing.
Shiroko, for the models and materials of the trees and rocks in the map.

Have a good Stranded! XD

No, sorry. With a bit of work, I might be able to make a copy of the map without them, but it would get abused in Stranded to no end.

Hey, can you see if you can find a way to have those prop destroyers get removed in Sandbox?

Permanent cabins? Open in Sandbox, save and then put into Stranded map? I don't know I'm afraid. As to Stranded, go nuts! Has been tested in Stranded (although old version now), no worries.

How would I go about adding permanent cabins for players to this map?
Can I use this for my Stranded server? Thanks!!

Because you have a graphics bug. Fiddle with your bloom settings.

The models were from a mod, a long time ago - It was Shiroko who made it, the trees and rocks were both a part. Perhaps you can track that down, might still be running.
