Elliott's Adventure Map

This is a linear adventure/exploration map with several different themes between each area of the three sections. There are also a few jumping/parkour sections throughout the map with both easy and hard paths. Hidden throughout the map are 4 clues to find that will allow you to guess correctly on the end puzzle. Take your time and explore!

So far it has taken me around 360+ hours of work. It has been very fun to make and I have learned a lot. It would be awesome to get some thumbs up rateings in the workshop if you enjoyed it! :+1: F.A.Q & Changelog are below the screenshots! The map is still getting a lot of updates frequently as shown in the steam workshop Change Notes ( view ). Feel free to suggest anything in this thread or let me know of any bugs/issues you come across.

FAQ:
Q: How long is the map? How long did it take to make?
A: Around 30 - 45+ mins to complete without rushing. The map has taken me over 360 hours to make so far.

Q: Should anything be disabled in this map?
A: Jetpacks

Q: What do the “No return past this point” signs mean?
A: These signs indicate the end of a section (3 in total), you cannot backtrack once you go through. Apart from these section changes you can always backtrack and explore more.

Q: Why am I having a hard time going through teleports?
A: Your workshop model size is probably causing the issue, change your workshop model to the default or a more normal sized model. You can also remove any size potions.

Q: Why am I having problems with the platforming/jumping parts?
A: Overly large or small player models seem to have a harder time making jumps, try the default or a more normal sized player model. Try removing size potions or you may also be simply jumping too early or too late.

How do you get out of the kitchen in the house to the next area?

If you are on the fridge/kitchen counter already, run along the counter there will be another vent to enter just past the sink. Should be hard to miss at that point. I tried making the vent visible from ontop the fridge but I can see how it might still be missed.

Edit:
I have added something to the top of the fridge that should help direct people if they are unsure where to go next. I am also doing small updates/improvements every other day or so, checking the change notes on the workshop page will show all the smaller changes I have been doing.

Now that August is behind us, here is what has been changed/added in my map over the past month!

First off, more map optimizations have taken place, removing more bushes, reducing all and removing some portal particles and a further reduction in overall workshop item file size. I have also gone through and re-worded almost every single notebook which I think has improved the information and direction you get from them.

New Area: SCP-087 (Staircase)

This is my version of SCP-087 (Staircase) that I think fits nicely in the first area along side the Phasmophobia truck and Slenderman area. I suggest walking (not running) down the staircase to get the full experience of the subtle sound effects that happen around you during your decent. This can be found in the first area at the far end of the hallway next to the cafeteria entrance.

Updated ground textures:

After the fantastic Mars ground texture replacement from the previous month, I decided to look into replacing more ground textures to make things feel a bit varied and more normal looking and I think it worked out really well, especially in the first area. No longer does every room have the same wooden floor. The recovery room, bathroom, office, cafeteria all look a lot better from this update.

Updated tunnel section:

I have always felt the tunnel section near the end was a little empty feeling, so I spent some time adding more pipes, crates, barrels and other items around. I think this has helped remove that empty feeling a bit. More work will be done throughout the tunnels in the future to continue filling everything out.

Another update that I am happy to announce is the ability to finally backtrack through the “Memory Puzzle” near the end of the tunnels. This is also where I fully removed teleporter particles for a hopeful small optimization for people with older PCs.

Other small updates:

  • The waste pits were always a bit touchy when ever you would crouch in specific spots on top of some rocks and it could teleport you unfairly. I have touched this area up and it feels much better now, you should be able to hop onto all the rocks and crouching should no longer trigger the teleport on you.

  • All easy paths throughout the map have been adjusted to be a tiny bit easier, you might not even notice much of a visual change but for those who were struggling with some of the easy path jumps hopefully they should be a bit easier now for you and just as rewarding to finish.

  • Several other fixes/additions/improvements throughout the map!

I also wanted to send out a huge thank you to everyone who has been thumbing up my map in the workshop. I am glad everyone is enjoying the map and having fun! I really hope you enjoy the updates from August.
