And let me guess, he'll have an uncanny resemblence to Osama Bin Laden.

His 2000 year old "return of the joker" style clone back to create havoc in the UESC.

You'll see what I mean...


Just so you know moppy, making cities is easy as shit. Anyone off the street can make a good city map. I've even devoted an entire chapter to a city. The only thing you have to worry about with cities is elevations of rooftops and how much detail you want. You can make it simple with jsut a plain old texture on each side, or you can make a consistant pattern giving it a more realistic look. i.e. really bunched up polygons.

You've also gotta worry about civillians and cars and such, but that is encompassed in detail. If you want a good TC, make a detailed map.

NO, I WILL NOT LOOK LIKE OSAMA BIN LADEN. In fact I might just make him have a Russian accent especially for this opening scene.

An excellent example of a building which is easily to model buildings off is "Ku Luven" or something like that, I always liked that map, it was fun, cool new shapes and a new weapon...

Its not that hard, You don't have to go to the very edge of the walls and not all buildings are square. Make sure you make the building big enough to actually make it easy to construct something inside...

It's KU Leuven... It's an university in Belgium and my niece studies there. The map maker basically copied the university's outline... it's awesome. I've tried the same with my neighborhood and house in the Hammer editor for CS. You had to plant the bomb in my house to win. [MErr] It never got finished though

Evil: You and your team go to investigate some planet you inadvertantly got sucked towards in some spatial rift thingy after Nor'Khor and you meet more than Pfhor on the surface.
But the mission doesn't go wrong until later in the game, not the beginning.

RED: You and your team go to investigate a "dead in the air" pfhor scout craft. But you meet more than Pfhor inside, and you have to slowly and carefully negotiate your way through hellbent corridors to make your escape. The mission results in the death of your entire team. And then things get worse...

I think cars would look bad because of sprites, also it would be hard for them to follow a path...
