    Just a short Idea i had while getting the newest Cryengine Realese. (Which currently work at my place due to a AMD Graphic bug mentioned in the forums -.-)

    But what about a really big Map which is Half Life 2 related for a multiplayer HL2RP Game?
    I mean i love gmod Roleplay specially hl2rp but i want something

    A: Better Looking
    B: Something new

    So i thought what about the Cryengine?

    So my question is.

    Would that be Possible?
    Who would help?
    What would you help?

    Greetings



    (btw is there a way to change my username :'D i want finally my new one because this one i dont use for years now so dont pick on me for that)

    You could, but it would be illegal.

    Why should it be Illegal if we would recreate Models? Of course it wont be possible to use the same models / prefabs and such true that but the rest wont be such a problem would it. Because i have seen game recreations of other games in like the cryengine on moddb too

    You'd be pretty much fine as long as you didn't use HL content or the branding. AFAIK, it's OK to be Half-Life-esque.

    Thats what i thought i mean just saying it plays in the HL Universe short before the time of HL2 wouldnt be that "bad" and Valve would say its "ok" i guess as long theres no Profit or such.

    Then good luck finding a team out of moddellers, animators, mappers & programmers, that would spend their time on something liek that

    Why would you make a brand new roleplaying game when you could just fire up The Specialists or Gmod and go at it already?

    There would be no point to do that. When you just port them, you could leave the whole Cryengine part out and just make a mod (!). Oh and it would be illegal to port HL2 models over anyways( I assume you are talking about them, since they're essential to the half-life atmosphere)

    The only way that something like this would be legal is if you made the game free, and then made it so that when it starts up, it somehow loads the half life models without actually copying them. Good luck with that.

    I'm just saying, none of this helps role play in any way. Then again you might be used to TSRP post-1.5 / Gmod RP which revolves more around using plugins and interfaces than actually roleplaying anything.

    Or you match the art style without using any of the actual HL2 art.

    If you have a Source License you could make it have the same lighting system of CryEngine 3 fairly easily by enabling deferred rendering and DX10

    Its not only about the Lightning. I want something BIGGER i mean the source engine is really limited what it can run on map sizes and i have never seen a really "open world like" map for such a thing.

    I "maybe" found a Programmer for it i will do some of the mapping. (Programmer is still thinking about it) Also most likely it will just take the art style like robmaister said without the hl2 content but a similar storyline. Still searching for help if anyone wants to ^^

    Don't be stupid, make it as a sourcemod.
    Lighting can be optimized with that, effects can be added in the shape of shaders and there are already a ton of brilliant maps out there. Work effort -80%

    Walking for several minutes - the pinnacle of role play. Any good role play maps can already do what you asked.

    You first arguement is just wrong in every aspect. You can drop combine everywhere. Helicopters and combines could be added via MapAdd (done in CSS SCI FI i.e.).
    Walking a couple minutes?

    Wow! You're right! All these years of playing Garry's Mod roleplay, I never realized the one thing that needed to be in the game was more walking!
