A huge tropical island map with sandy beaches, forests, caves and rivers - suitable for roleplay and survival gamemodes. A two-month project, Big Island spans the entire usable Hammer grid and features 90% custom content as well as a few secrets. We recommend playing in HDR for the full experience - don't worry, we've tamed the bloom.
No additional games are required to play, as all necessary content is included.

Makes sense, as I'm using a slightly older laptop to play GMod.

@Worf I think your graphics card uses older standards? I can't see colour correction working in the screenshot. The water texture uses normal mapping, not DU/DV mapping, which I think is only sorted out in DX9 and later.

4.5/5 in my opinion. Though there are some things that need to be fixed.

Hiyu, when I load this map, the water surface textures appear as a checkerboard, I think they're missing. In addition, the water in the skybox appears solid black. Do you know what could be causing this and/or how I can fix it? Thanks in advance! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=249943814

A friend of mine wanted me to use his lovely water texture (so I did), unfortunately I seem to have lost him in the deep sea of Steam :(

@Vincent it has had AI nodes since the most recent update :) Some of the more open areas have them missing - I covered as much as I could but Source has a limit on how many you can place.
