    Are you using a base for this game mode or is it being done from scratch?

    The entire gamemode is from scratch.

    I have a full dev team and I am looking for more talented people to join the team. Active devs that see the game to the end will be rewarded. Also including exclusive access to the game before its released.

    Jump in our teamspeak and Ill talk to anyone thats interested to be a part of the team.

    I am looking for someone to join the team that enjoys modeling and making entities. I would also enjoy to have some concept artists on the team.

    I think I remember reading about this a few weeks ago. You wanted it to be like Morrowind, I think?

    Good luck with it anyway.

    Forums are broken

    Forums are not broken, the background needs to be adjusted and the colors need to be organized better. I also need a better banner for the website. The names of the sections could be thought out better. Now look at all those suggestions I just made for myself.

    Dont use phpbb

    Why should I not use phpbb? Are you suggesting I just trust your opinion and switch to a different software that you haven't even bothered to suggest?

    There are better forum software's out there. <-- That right there is a statement, not a suggestion or idea. You couldnt bother to name 1 software that you thought would be better.


    Here's a good example to make a suggestion

    Is the map size limit going to be big enough? -nick_9_8

    The way that I have designed the game-play with the map I plan on having will offer players a diverse way to play the game.

    There are multiple cities within the map the player can travel to. Between being in the city you will also discover caves and other places to explore.

    The grid in Hammer Editor offers me enough room to make a full designed world. I can create a "wilderness" section that is the size of the hammer grid. With the skybox being at a lower height than most maps I can utilize the rest of the grid to create multiple places for the player to travel to. Doing it that way would only have me create doors that teleport players to different parts of the map, for the player to travel between. Having multiple servers with "different" parts of the "world", I can expand my ideas further. This is what I hope to be able to accomplish.

    Edited to be less of a rant. /dev/ was somewhat right.

    Im going to update the content information more tonight.

    Rolling a few off the top of my head: vBulliten, iPB. These both cost a fair amount of money, mind you.

    Yeah for this map you plan on making. Entity limit is no longer an issue in gmod13. However brushs and the light maps are limited. You will hit limits. Imo make a couple of servers with 1 per territory.

    The website has been updated.

    The logo has been refined.

    I have also converted the server to Gmod13beta. If you plan on signing up for alpha testing, then be sure to get it.

    Im still looking for someone with great orginizational skills. Someone who can sit with us in teamspeak and orginize ideas over a google doc.

    There is also a story and npc dialogue writer position.
    In this position you would be writing missions and thier dialogue.
    Creating names for characters, and their races and placement in the world.
    You will also be invited to help create the main storyline and lore for the game.

    Story and npc dialogue sounds interesting but I suck so, meh.

    Oh and good luck with this, sounds interesting.

    Yes there are limits, and I am aware of it. I say typically you would hit the brush face limit before hitting the brush limit. I plan on optimizing the map by separating the "areas" in a way where most brushes can be func_detail. Not many brushes would have to be world geometry. Separating the actual cities with the wilderness through out the map will allow me to have mostly detail brushes. Using a series of teleporters between the wilderness and the city allows me to have an open map. Once in the city, you would enter the buildings the same way. I could literally have only the city walls, floor, and sky as world geometry, the rest can be detail brushes.

    tldr I have a plan for optimization that makes rendering brushes and brush faces simple and efficient.

    If your saving system is based around SQLite and not regular SQL I could probably handle doing this, but I am a bit rusty with GLua because I haven't touched Garry's Mod in quite some time. But I could handle the base code, rendering 3D2D type things, Quest System and no doubt, the Skill system.

    The site is not as bad as everyone is making it out to be, of course a good logo will help, but I think your main page is just fine. The forum could use a better face lift, probably just to match the colors of the main page better.

    And thanks for that dude :)

    The website has been updated and the forum has been fixed.

    I can actually say the website is at a version where it can be browsed and use properly.

    But updates will still be coming guys :)

    That's not a copyright, that's a trademark.

    You have to apply for a trademark, not for a copyright. You can't copyright a name.

    No it doesnt. Do your research here.

    http://www.uspto.gov/

    You need to apply for a trademark after researching that the name doesnt infringe on someone elses trademark.

    That's because they changed the design.

    To clarify trademarks and copyright, anything you make is copyrighted by you. You can also register your copyright with the US Copyright Office, which can cost upwards of $35, but gives added protection. A copyright is a work that you produce.

    A trademark is a sound, slogan, symbol, or anything else that identifies your work. The name EchelonSixteen would be a trademark, but the gamemode would be copyrighted. The fees for the trademark process are a lot higher, and can cost hundreds of dollars.

    I would like to mention that, as of now, the only thing that is copyrighted on this website is the website itself,as you can't copyright ideas, words, slogans, names, or titles.
