Hall of the Elements Map v2 [SFM Resource] by argodaemon Hall of the Elements Map v2 [SFM Resource] by argodaemon
As seen in Remembrance!
If you liked the video, also check out the audio drama by Ashley H!

Only 3 years late! Please read the novel of text below! It should answer most questions! I will try to help people where I can, but if you get confused with anything regarding SFM use (i.e. how gobo textures work, how to re-texture, etc.), try searching YouTube for tutorials first.

Just warning you that what the map looks like is not what it looks like in the video most people know it from. Each shot was custom lit in the video to get the effect needed. This is why the lighting was kept low. Nonetheless, with some TLC, you can get the same look here. :)

The map has a lot of issues with it as it was built for the sole purpose of Remembrance. There are some holes in the wall that appeared for no reason, areas outside the hall are super minimal/crappy, and the building looks like poop from outside. If anyone wants to go and fix up the map, clean it up and/or upgrade it, by all means go ahead. This was my first map ever and ended with me loathing Hammer. :(  Hence, I stick to scenebuilding everything lol.

File Includes:
Element Hall Map [mlp_element_hallway]
Stained Glass Window models [7 in total, search "glass_"] (Created by BeardedDoomGuy)
Element Door [door, door_frame, door_lock] (Created by GunGryphon)
Hanging Flags [element_flag] (Created by myself)
Flower Pots [flower_pot] (Created by GunGryphon)
Gobo Textures for Window Lights [search "stained_"]
Template Save File [mlp_elementhall_template.dmx]

Various Tips:
- First off, there was a LOT of custom work done with lighting, textures and particles in the final version of Remembrance within SFM. This map is not going to supply all that. It only has the minimum. It will take some work on your part to buff it up.

- To install, just drag all files (besides the Read Me file) from within the ZIP file into your "usermod" folder. Do not modify their structure in any way. Just grab them all and drop it in "usermod".

- If you are looking for the Twilight pentagram circle model thing, that can be found here. Created by The4thaggie 

- There is a save file called "mlp_elementhall_template" that has the door and some lighting set in the main area as a quick example of how you could do the lighting yourself.  Feel free to use it as you want.

- If you are not using the template, the doorway and window areas will be open. You will need to either load the models manually or put something else in its place. The door is separate so you can grab the bones for opening and such. The Mane 5 windows were separate as they can explodes.

- The streaming light from the windows is not actually being created by passing through the windows.  To make the volumetric window lights look like that, you have to apply a gobo texture to a light.  Included with the file are 7 in total: 5 for each of the Mane 5 windows and 2 for each of the ones in the hall. They are pre-blurred for optimum effect.

Credits:
Stained Glass Textures: nenuiel
Custom Models: GunGryphon, BeardedDoomGuyThe4thaggie 
Other Models/Textures used: friagram & Snazzysummary from MLP Canterlot Castle
Final Testers for Release: yaashoTsuriaDragon, and many others from the livestream on 4/27/18.

Note: This was intended for use in Source Filmmaker. I can not guarantee its use in any other medium (namely GMod).

Update Log
v1: Release (29APR2018)
v2: Corrected a gobo texture linking issue on the save file DMX. No map changes. (30APR2018)

Oh my god, I've been waiting for this :D

Do you know how well Gmod handles it? I was going to do some scenebuilding on a map and create a fight scene with Twilight for Doors 3 but with this map's release I have a new idea. I cannot for the life of me do SFM however ^^'' I've tried and there's just too many steps for me hehe

Thank you for this wonderful gift.

I know how much time you have dedicated to making this map; It will be a great honor for me to be able to use it.

Infinitely grateful, by one of your great admirers.

I have a question :
Why are the columns very white, and they emit a particularly strong light? They appear after loading the template file.

That is a lighting error with SFM. Correcting requires restarting the software. I can't remember the exact cause, but it is a general issue with SFM and certain models. Causes them to go full-bright for some reason.

The main delay has been laziness lol. The only difficulty was getting all the resources into a shareable format. The files were everywhere on my computer lol. I found some software that compiled most of them into the map file.

I'll load it up in GMod the next chance I get. However, even if it does work, is there any way to get a prop pack (i.e. the carpet, pillars, maybe even floors walls and ceilings, etc.)?
I feel you when you say you very much prefer scenebuilding, since I got the same condition ;P

Most the models are built into the BSP. I am unsure if Gmod is okay with that or not, though. The only models not built-in are those that allow manipulation. I don't plan to make it fully Gmod-compatible myself. Anyone that wants to take on that task is free to do so. 😎

Okay, so it actually does load up in GMod, and some of the props (i.e. the hanging flags and stained windows) are also in the spawnlist. That's neat!
However most of the map is essentially not usable, for the most part the hallway s themselves. Apparently they behave as if they were one gigantic model or something. The Physgun beam cannot pass and selecting anything with any tool in there is not possible. Anything you place in there is essentially stuck and immovable. The rotund room with the stained glass windows is usable though, but then again, the hallway leading up to it isn't. Plus the lighting cannot be changed in GMod (aside from making it even brighter).
All in all, someone who knows maps really needs to have a crack at porting this.
