Aftermath Night and Day

Aftermath Night and Day includes the two sequels to the post-apocalyptic roleplay and build map, Gm_Aftermath! Set in a freshly updated and newly detailed war-torn landscape, Aftermath Night dims the lights on a wide variety of environments, from a muddy marsh to city streets. Inky darkness is broken only by the flickering glow of gas station fires, train headlamps, and broken traffic lights. Will you shelter yourself from zombies inside a derelict factory, or soar above the landscape in a creation of your own? For those scared of the dark, Aftermath Day is also included in the download and features an identical landscape set in the cool, foggy blue atmosphere of the original Aftermath.

COMPATIBILITY NOTES: (Updated 2021-11-03)
- A recent update might make the fog too bright. If you think it's too bright, you can turn off HDR (High Dynamic Range) in your video settings to reduce the effect.
- If you see "ERROR" where grass should be: A recent update may have changed the way detail props are managed by Garry's Mod, which can cause conflicts between some maps. To fix, uninstall the affected map and re-install Aftermath Night and Day. So far, the following maps have been reported to cause a conflict:


Map Features and Improvements:

-Huge map size; great for Build, RP, and more.
-AI nodes in most areas, and a NAV mesh for NextBot-based NPCs
-New locations, including suburbs, downtown, a trailer park, an airstrip, and more
-Tons of new buildings in existing locations
-Visual enhancements to most areas of the map
-An improved, fully operational train
-Better rocket launch and other easter eggs
-Highly optimized for performance
-Both Day and Night versions included


-Half-Life 2

Theoretically, the map does not require HL2: Episode 2. The skybox issue is unrelated, and is due to EP2 adding some HDR skybox textures. You should be able to play the game just fine with only Half-Life 2 mounted.

About the Development:

An update to Aftermath has been long awaited, and after many years I'm proud to present the community with the new version. I have not had nearly as much time to dedicate to mapping as I once did, but I hope this pleases those who have been anticipating something new from me.

This is the official Version 1_0 release of Gm_Aftermath_Night and Gm_Aftermath_Day. I do not plan to update them further. However, please feel free to report any bugs or issues, as I will try to fix these occasionally.

If you are experiencing a purple and black skybox, try the following steps to correct it:
-unmount EP2 from Gmod
-restart Gmod
-remount EP2
-restart Gmod again
-uninstall and reinstall the map
The issue should now be resolved. If it is not, please leave a comment with as many details as possible!

Known Issues:
-Particle effect for sewage pipe are broken for some players
-Some shadows in are flickery in Aftermath Day
-Some textures are inconsistent or misaligned in Aftermath Day
-Train sometimes gets a little violent on turns, especially when changing directions

Special Thanks to Bizzclaw for his work updating the NAV mesh!

The VMF files, and all other source files (textures, models, etc.) are now available in the Discussions tab on the Steam workshop.

I have played this map for a very long time, I'm requesting that there's further updates to be optimized for the latest version of gmod.

@bappo, @louie088: If the fog / background light is too severe, you can turn off HDR in your graphics settings and it should tone it down :)
@SgtChickenFrizi: Thank you for sharing that! I will add a note to the description.

@headhuntingsniper You're out of storage.

I found out RP_Pure_Lake was causing the errors of the grass. Seems like after a recent gmod update, that map addon kind of overrides the grass sprites. Replacing them with errors. So hence that map was the cause of my errors in my HL2 maps, Colony, and Aftermath here. And a few others. I have no idea why. But I guess that is that. Just wanted to point it out. Map still works, its just I had an addon that refused to function with the rest :/.
