Description
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.

NOTICE: Requires DirectX 9 or later graphics! Play on your Intel Graphics Accelerator from 2007 at your own risk!
(If you think it should be working but it isn't, put -dxlevel 90 in your launch settings.)

Long-time enjoyer of this map, showing it to someone as backdrop for possible use for scenery in a project that person might work on.

Also, looking at the water surface from underneath in SFM looks absolutely horrific, as it's a mishmash of greys and other odd colours... as well as it doesn't sync all that well with the skybox portion of the ocean. (Though a lot of Photoshop can make it work fairly well, it's still a bit of ah assle, though; https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/914672973034029198/248F21FA4A98B53A09782ED9DD575E309864B094/ )

As i've mentioned before, this map is absolutely lovely, but is there any chance of an SFM verison being made? I do aplologise for once again bothering you with this.

Given the different version of the source engine used, the map's HDR and cubemaps loves to bug out, plus loading it straight-up crashes sfm unless one enters r_Hunkalooclightmaps 0 into the console before loading it.

I recall mentioning of the map from a couple years back on a facepunch post about it and how it wasn't SFM compatible 'yet'. But that was quite a long time ago now, and I would hate to asssume vitrually no progress on that has been made... would you mind if I asked if any progress on that has been made?
