    [release][tab]Name:[/tab] Gm_TowerOfTerror

    [tab]Version:[/tab] 1.0

    [tab]Description:[/tab] A map of the attraction at Disney MGM studios, with working ride.

    [tab]Requirements:[/tab] Gmod9 or 10

    [tab]Download:[/tab] http://files.filefront.com/Tower_Of_.../fileinfo.html






    Gm_TowerOfTerror

    Finally, after about 2 months of hard work it is finished. Gm_TowerOfTerror is a complete recreation of the "Tower Of Terror" attraction in Disney MGM Studios Florida. It has a fully working ride and preshow with many cool effects just like the real version, complete with high quality recordings.

    To begin the preshow, go into the library room and wait 20 seconds, the doors will close and a few seconds later the show will start on the tv.

    INSTALLATION
    To install, just extract the gmod9 folder in the .zip over your gmod9 folder.

    CREDITS
    All credits go to me, heyo, as the maker of this map.

    Also, special thanks to Towerofterror.org for providing many pictures I used for reference.

    VERY IMPORTANT
    Make sure you set net_maxfilesize 40 if you're playing the map in multiplayer to allow people to download the map.

    There was a tower of terror for counterstrike but that one was confusing, and seeing as it was made as a counterstrike map, it didn't have the full ride.

    Yeah, I found it anyways.

    Not trying to degrade your map, just supplying info.

    It looks a little blocky but on a scale of one to ten on blockyness i would say 0.5/10.

    I found out he had made a tower of terror map half way through development of my version. I almost quit working on it because of this, but my version is arguably better in some ways.

    Like my ride is has the actual audio from the real thing and it's more like the real ride.

    After playing it, the map is incredibly well put together. It has many details which are very good. The effects and general ambience is perfect for the map.

    The only few things that I would suggest is, add more random grass sprites in the grass to make it more lively and less propped out looking. Also, make some of your edges clipped off at 1.5 perfect 45 degree angles. it makes the map feel less blocky and more like stucco.

    Just a few things to improve on. Otherwise, very nice, keep up the nice work.

    I remember playing a old de_towerofterror that looked like this before. But that was for Counter Strike Source. This one looks nicer.

    This was a very good job, man. It's really fun to use Jetboom's grappling hook SWEP with and try to get to the top of the tower only shooting the hook at the building. Anyways, good map.

    Wow! This map is awesome and is very detailed. The only flaw is that on floating tree. Keep up the good work!

    If you want something to do, mess with the ride. For instance, I noclipped to the place where the video is shot and put in the elevator that opens a toilet and barney sitting on it with a newspaper. It was hillarious, you had to be there.

    Uhh oh... Crappy stolen and edited just enough to make people beleive that you actually made this from scratch map.

    Come on people. All he did was take that map Short Stuf gave a link to, delted a bunch of stuff in it, took some of the sounds out, and tried to release it as his own shit. Even download both maps, and listen to the sounds. He just deleted a few and renamed them. Hurrrr...
    Play it and you'll see it's architecture is way diffrent.
    Besides, I was talking to heyo when he was first starting it, here's an early WIP picture for proof.

    Well, no, the architecture isn't really very different at all. All he really did is take the outside shell of Nipper's map, delete all of the insides, and rebuild them. I mean, look how crappy the inside is compared to the outside. And for that little development picture thing above this post, he most likely took the map, retextured the outside and delted all of the displacements and things to make it look like he had some progress pics. Trust me, the maps are way too similar to be two diferent maps. There's no way, you can prove that you didn't just rip Nipper off.
    He posted pictures of his map a while ago, and when compared to Nipper's version, the scaling is different.

    I don't know. Why the hell would you make map, that's already been made... I bet you prolly started with Nippers map, and built off of it to make you're own at least. They're too similar in too many ways. I'll look at the differences more closely in the morning.
    I did not know it was already made and found out half way through making mine. Also, why the hell would I take an already made map and completely retexture it from the inside out, completely change the scaling and shape of everything, change the rooms all around, make a completely new preshow video, and change tons of other things?

    Oh, and I suppose I just took everything out of the map, stripped it down and retextured it just to make it look like I had a WIP version?

    The reason the maps are similar is because they're both based on the same real life thing. I started from scratch and made the map completely on my own without even knowing about Nippers version.

    It's a pretty stupid assumption to think I would do such a thing as steal a map.
