Mediocre Scenario.

Discuss and unveil current Marathon projects.

Post Feb 10th '07, 02:49

Everybody is working on ground shattering new game designs, insane mind blowing graphics, and all new monsters.

And after all of this, you know what I'm in the mood for?
A mediocre scenario. That shakes the ground but doesn't shatter it, it can use default graphics, and maybe one or two new monsters.

Is anyone working on a mediocre scenario right now? Or are we all in to the Revelutionary Projects?

KTA is a graphicless scenario. And plus, who says you need graphics? You can have 16x16 textures but as long as its worth playing its good. TGI once more had no high res, it just had a few new textures in a high depth shapes file. Im not calling it 'mediorce
'. And xmas icecave had no big super graphics, and it was only 7 levels, and that scenario was pretty fun. If you want something simple, youve got a dead scenario buried on your computer, why not ressurect it and make it as simple as you like?

Ill admit Marathon Shadow's graphics are looking pretty hard to beat, not only the chapter screens and weapons but the textures Im making and other stuff.

Back to KTA, thats about as simple as you are going to get. If you want it fast then make a map or two for it.

i don't think the word "mediocre" is the right word for this. Many of the revolutionary projects that have come out for 'thon are even less than mediocre. Time spent on something + high amount of new graphics + hi-res stuff doesn't equal fun & enjoyment.

So by mediocre you mean:

Standard Res Textures/Weapons/Sprites
Normal Weapons
Or generally everything that feels like the original Marathon.

So by this, I'm assuming that you regard Marathon, Durandal and Infinity as "Mediocre"?
You're obviously not enjoying Marathon if you regard it as mediocre... :(

Well I think the bar has been set pretty high lately.
I want just want fun. That lasts a couple hours, not weeks. Length wise.

It can be ONE level long, for all I care, as long as the story and gameplay kicks ass.

No you don't understand, words won't suffice here, it must be shown by creative force. Actions speak louder than words :P

Simplicity doesn't mean mediocre.

There were some pretty good things that I've seen that were only Solid Textures for both Marathon Sprites and Walls.

The feel matters more than the look.

Some of those are pretty interesting. [MGrin]
