Oh, there you are, Perry.
Oh, there you are, Perry.
Alright. I had to decompile my map to get the VMF back, because I guess I lost it .
For now, they are just hammer shots.
The Ice Chamber Thing, where you fight Peaches (is that his name ?, can't remember). One of the freezers will have an entrance to the Smuggler's Hideout.
Medical Pavilion Entrance, I've sorta made this for the mapping contest. It needs the "Medical Pavilion" sign.
Edit: Yes, that is a Circus of Values in the first picture.
Edit 2: forgot, about the proximity mine. you can put them anywhere, and a npc or player will set them off.
Well, I did say anywhere... A advanced technique in Bioshock was to put them on a object, then use Telekenisis and fling them at Big Daddies.
Holy crap, this is shaping up to be tottally awesome. Only problem I see is it's basically RP but anyone can have a weapon and no one is protected.
"I'd like to buy a pistol please"
"Ok that'll be one hun-"
See about getting those Bioshock models someone posted a few pages back.
I planned on making a complementing gamemode with the map. So when you kill someone, or obtain a weapon or plasmid your "insanity" level increases. Higher it is, you become more like a Splicer. If your insanity reaches the Splicer level, you lose all your weapons, and are limited to what you can do. On the positive side, you can walk on ceilings and cool stuff..miniman. posted:
Yea, they are brushes, and they don't really look that great (Mine). I could really use your texture if that is ok.PLing posted:
For that area you should make a blend texture for the floor so it blends between snow and floor tiles, so it doesn't look like you're walking on pure ice but there is actually a floor beneath.Foda posted:
Ouch. I hope you remade the brushwork?Foda posted:
What's the point in that?metallics posted:
Ok, so basically, when you compile a map, the source engine removes all uneeded faces, and chops all the remaining ones up into triangles, then sews them all together to create one big face.
When you decompile a map, using vmex, it tries to recreate the vmf and put all the information back in that is lost when the map was compiled. Obviously it can only guess, so you often end up with multiple brushes where there was one, gaps between brushes, invalid brushes, missing sides etc. \hence when you decompile a map, recompiling is almost sure to result in disaster somewhere down the line without rebuilding most of the brushwork.
looking lovely, can't wait for this.
A: That is freaking radicalFoda posted:
B: So... you should rename the thread BS_Bioshock? (tee hee, B.S._Bioshock)
Still wetting myself.
Walking on walls... GWAAA???
Dude, that's fucking genius.Foda posted:
How many weapons are planned?
Thompson, Crossbow (and trap-bolt), grenade launcher (with proxy) are done already. Pistol, Shotgun, and chemical thrower are not done, but can be made easily. On a side note, I finished the HUD.Rubs10 posted:
Tompson? The tommy gun?Foda posted:
I WANT THE PICTURES OF THE HUD! :excited:Foda posted:
Ignore the green bar, it's a temporary health bar. The weapon icon changes with your current weapon.
Holy shit! All I can say is to grunge up the green bar and have it be the same color of brown as everything else and you got yourself the perfect HUD!
Need to drop the black around the upper/lower weapon things. Make it a dark brown.
Dude, I'm as excited about this map and gamemode as I am L4D
That won't work because in Bioshock he say bla bla bla would you kindly?killer89 posted:
Would you kindly get the fuck out of here?Tankboomer posted:
I love the hud :p Is there a tutorial how to make huds?
Would you kindly work more on the map, Foda?
Foda, work on it or I'm going to say it.
Fuck it, I'm saying it.
1111 smartness :ssj:
I've been really busy lately, but I got the ice how I want it.
lol purple floor
Why is the floor purple?
Allso, I'd make the ice a little more opaque.
Isn't there some brush entity that makes it so when you enter a certain area you can see the breath from the players mouth? I remember someone talking about it and I wondered where it was used if it was used at all then I played DoD:Source. Would be cool to impliment that into the map.
working on a EPIC map AND doing luas for a EPIC gamemode?
You are awesome dude.
It's actually a map property "World is Cold". It was originally for the Kraken Base in the original Hl2, but they scrapped it all..miniman. posted:
I thought it was for DODS, but was removed?
But that makes more sense.
And you could try parenting a env_steam to the player's head attachment point.
Wow, can you like, parent things to an info_player_start?Lord Ned posted:
Yeah it's a bit complicated. You just set the parent to !player. Dunno how well it would work in MP/when you respawn.
I can just imagine something going wrong and you'd see people steaming at the crotch or ass.Lord Ned posted:
got it to work, and with less purple. you can't really see it though in the screenshot.
also, done forever with the HUD
