Marathon:4 Pathways into Time

Discuss and unveil current Marathon projects.

Post Jun 2nd '12, 16:18

I am pleased to announce that I have just updated our photobucket album. I would also like to say that we have finally finished work on the guns, so what you guys see is what you get. So, now its on to monsters, doing more textures, and stuff like that. I would also like to say that I have lost my internet, so now I have to update at my local library so if I do not comment on some things that's why. So I guess now on to some more serious things like starting work on story, textures, and stuff. So, anyway, we hope you like the stuff we have uploaded and we are looking foward to uploading more. so here is the link to my photoucket album http://s1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg640/Lolman1171/

Thanks for the update.

Is the headless type 3 a joke?



THINGS BAD ABOUT THIS IDEA:

1 - It has a head.
2 - The description says not much is known about it, but immediately rambles on about how nazis created it in a lab, using the "pfhor" pun to make me take this thing even less seriously. If we're not supposed to know much about it, don't follow up this statement with a spoilerific infodump.
3 - the album name is "Lolman1171."
4 - Nazis gave it a mechanical tail? Is this the wolfenstein 3D universe where Hitler has a robotic walker and a scientist that created zombies with purple blood? No, it isn't? Nazis didn't have this technology. They walked around and shot at stuff, and gassed people because Hitler was a sick freak. Every one of them that went into the w'rcncacncter's pyramid died.
5. No.
6. See 5.
7. Don't put this in the scenario. Just don't. Plzthnxbai.

Maybe it's a joke. Maybe the lack of capitalization for proper nouns is a joke (Germans, Nazis). Maybe the real question we should be asking is: Will we be able to ride the headless type 3? Will we be able to ride every enemy we come across?!

This really irritates me. If you're going to fake science, then make it science-fantasy, not bad science-fiction. Take it like this: things like Star Trek are science-fiction. They actually give factual insights to how their universe works. Things like Star Wars, however, are science-fantasy. They don't give factual insight (unless you read the expanded universe material or whatever). Cool, a lightsaber. Is it actually possible? Who cares. It's awesome.

Now, we come to this image, which occupies a gray zone of complete shittiness. If you're going to give some degree of scientific insight, at least make that insight correct. Aside from the spelling and grammar issues, this really ticks me off:

"The [pointlessly-long-name] shoots hydrogen metal that is heated into shards that are shot at 7,000 feet per second."

Hydrogen metal. That's a non-trivial error. Hydrogen exists as a solid only at extremely low temperatures, and only as a metal if you couple that with extremely high pressures. Heating the damn thing will just remove the option of it being a solid altogether. Is this a flamethrower or something? Because it most certainly isn't a rail-gun.

Now, consider the fact that you're using hydrogen anyway. Hydrogen is light. Really, really light. If you want to give an object a good momentum, then fire something heavy. Like depleted uranium. At least that stuff isn't a gas.

At least you took the time to read the Wikipedia article on rail-guns and the speed at which the projectile is fired at (but not that the particle itself isn't heated - it uses electromagnetism).

Keep on truckin', tiger. I know you'll get there soon. The Armalite doesn't actually look too bad.



Also: 'criticied'.

Please fix this. Please fix all of this.

Sorry for the double post, but I only just saw this image.

"Shoots binary code".

Is this a joke? Because it's pretty damn funny.

I would also like to say that we have finally finished work on the guns, so what you guys see is what you get

Maybe a second look?

Maybe with Dugit back on, there will be two active scenarios going?

Hi, my name is Magnus Prime, and I am the artist for marathon:4, which is awesome since I steadily been have been getting better at drawing. which is better for your eye balls since at the start of development it looked like crap. Other than that, I guess hi and bye.

I am pleased to announce that we have just updated our photobucket album. Yes, I know that I start off with the same thing every time, but the best thing about this time is we are giving all the power to the marathon community! We have made a new batch of guns, only this time there is 2 designs of each gun, meaning that you guys vote on which designs go on to be in the game! Also, we have labeled each gun with a class indicator in the bottom right hand corner of each gun, there will be a category. Currently there is only 3 categorys; SMG, Assault Rifle, and Pistol. So go ahead and start voting, oh, yeah, and I hope you actually like our guns this time.

Of all the weapons, I like the M-4AOH231 for an SMG. The M-4TT428 is also a pretty cool design for an assault rifle. I don't really care for any of the other designs.

When will there be more textures?

Since no one would vote on gun designs, we voted. We think the picks we made are fantastic, we would like to see what you think. Anyway, we also have a new updated title screen and some other stuff. We should be able to start back on textures soon. Oh, yeah, and this time the guns you see is the guns you get. No more redesigns, no more rethinking, its time. Marathon 4 moves on, and, we think that after you see the new guns, you will agree. Well, at least we would like you guys to like the guns, but we shall see.

Maybe when they are turned into in-hand and item sprites. But for now, sketches are just sketches. :p

Yeah, you voted no one else though. So, that is why we just made a new batch of guns. Oh, yeah, and these guns was made in collaboration between me and my artist Magnus Prime, he is my brother. Oh, yeah, and I like the SVP-249 as well one of my faves.

Nice. Looks like you spelled it "Entertanment" and then realized you forgot a letter after the fact.

OK since we need to get M-4 to rolling ill ask for some helpers OK here is what help I need I need a

Serious LUA scripter because I am useless at coding with any scripting language, I need a Spriter for enemies, I can handle textures, just not enemies, and I need a music composer, I have a sound composer Durandal 347.

If I get help with the stuff on this list, then we could do some actual stuff. New textures, maybe some sounds and sprites, and I could finally get to work on new physics for the game. Oh, and so every body knows that I am not giving all my work away, I will be doing physics, textures, story, terminals, and some maps, mostly net maps, and I am also going to be voicing for the game.
