Short update this weekend, there is more to come, but only a few "screenshot worthy" images.
In one of the satellite reference images I have for the power plant there is one of these cheap looking modular commercial buidlings stuck next to the plant. As this map is fairly open I need all the buildings I can get so I modeled this one using reference photos and a floor plan I found for a similar building.
Next to the power plant is a large power relay station. It will have quite a few custom models, but each will be kept fairly basic as they are going to basically be background scenery.
I started making a map of Seaholm Power plant one year ago. That project was interupted when I was asked to make a map for Fantastic Fest. However I am happy to say that work has resumed on this project.
The Seaholm Power Plant is a incredible 1950's art deco power plant located along the river in Austin, TX near down town. The power plant was a gas/steam turbine plant and ran all the way into the 1980's.
For the game I am reviving the plant from its current empty state. This will be a four map campaign for Left 4 Dead 2.
The following are screenshots of the Seaholm pump station and surrounding walking path along the river. This is the first map and current area I am working on.
If your interested in more screenshots, including interior shots, see my flickr gallery here: http://goo.gl/AqYeU
I know there are quite a few of you are waiting for the map release so you can go kill zombies at the Highball. I have been working on the map every night to finish it out. I have added a few new assets from The Sacrifice update and currently 100% of the map geometry and all the details are done and locked in. I just have a few bugs that affect scavenge mode to figure out and then I will release the map.
Also, Left4Dead2 is still less then $7 right now, so if you want to play this map that is a low price to pay.
