    i have a video of a map i have finished /am finishing. its still in beta ofc, but, im looking for some ideas on how to link the interior with the exterior. at the moment, its disguised badly by a brick wall. which does the job, but i want it to be more.... 4 dimensional.


    i want to be able to put the exterior in the middle of the map, but i still want it to have the "bigger on the inside" idea.
    it would be easy to do in portal, just make a door portal in the doorway of the exterior and interior of the tardis, but this is gmod.
    i thought about using teleporters, but how would i be able to create the "bigger on the inside" effect when the player opens the doors of the exterior tardis?

    thanks for any help guys.
    ps. im making my own thread because the Doctor Who thread seems to have died recently.

    How about a fully made brush tardis, just the box. You open the door and in front of you in a HD photo as a texture on a brush of what you would see if you were really looking in. It would have to be a pretty perfectly taken photo and placed correctly. Then when you step towards it you hit a trigger and teleport to the actual inside of the tardis. Same for the way out. Or, you could make it so when you press E on the door, it teleports you.

    Good luck getting such a high res image at the correct angle.

    I wished luck in general not directly to you. IT'S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT YOU.

    FUCK.

    brilliant this could just do it.
    i was thinking of doing it this way, except i couldnt figure out how to get rid of the annoying "feedback" effect on the monitor.
    now i know its possible.

    sorry for the late post and bumping my own thread (not deliberately) but no. its simply a hole in the wall behind the tardis. each location has a copy of the console room behind the wall. its sort of hard to explain but, when you walk through the tardis from the gm_construct lookalike map, you hit a teleporter that teleports you to the other interior. you barely even notice it. however you can bug it out if you walk backwards.. but i guess thats the price you pay for having a moving tardis in a gmod map right?
    anyway, it is not finished, there are still bugs, but i have released it as a finished map anyway as uni has started again and im out of time.
    u can dload it from gamebanana:

    ty all for your assistance.

    Edit: ps, there is now an old series console room. though im not going to tell you where it is, you will have to find it for yourself ;)
