Xmas Submarine


It's getting time for a new Xmas project. Sign up if you're interrested, and describe in what way you can contribute. If there's enough ppl, I'll put together a team.

To everyone on last year's team, you were awesome! [MUp]

Well, I can contribute in largely the same manner: terminals. But that's basically it, since I'm now permanently Mac-less.

Simon, do you want to map? I'm hunting for mappers firsthand. They're the backbone. Without them, this project is impossible.

I've heard dcbob is interrested, but I've heard rumors about his mac being cp. I don't count on him to join as a mapper.

Ryoko, you're always welcome to write terminals and play-test. You helped the project in great ways last year.

Tofu, you're welcome on board if you've learnt the lessons from last year. I must be able to trust you to make a map.

I saw him the other day, he said the computer was fixed.

That's about all I can do this year, too, and I will -- gladly.

My single player maps dont suck ass like last year's. I unfortuantely couldnt prove that to you because my better maps were done with SHadow Texutres... which are rather incomplete and blah blah blah.

Ill give mapping a shot. I've got forge and the works now.

XMAS sub i short for XMAS Submarine, and that is the name of last years scenario. (the textures were yellowish and reminded of a submarine) There's a link in my first post where you can download it.

Dieselfame:
I'll come back to graphics as soon as I have a group of mappers ready.

Shadowbreaker:
Excellent. Can I count you as a trustable mapmaker, who walk his talk, and is determined to finnish one level for this project?

Might I suggest some sort of backstory this time? The plot on the last one like, burned my brain. So bad that I actually stoped playing just because it was too confusing.

Ok so, are the shapes any different?

Making any a single palyer map will take me 1-3 weeks... sometimes I finish them in like 3 days though... I've got alot of time over thanksgiving to do one for you.

Has the creation of the project already started?

The last backstory was maybe 10 sentences or something like that. Maybe we can have 20 sentences this year :P

This year's textures. I haven't fixed the colors yet (thye might change), but it will look similar to this:
(+ computer terminals, rehcargers, and control panels) The landscape is going to be pinkish.
I'm posting this so the mappers can prepare themselves, and make suggestions for missing textures.

That storyline was so simple, what are you talking about?

No, the shapes are still in progress. As soon as they're done, we can start mapping. If things goes as planned, the mappers will have 4 weeks to complete their maps.

You can steal one of my colors table Goran, or maybe make a new one?
But so far so good!

Well, maybe someone could summarize it for me? The marine had a split-personallity; thats really all I got from it.

I don't remember too well, but it was about two AI's who had stolen a robot. They escaped from their homeplanet and found this pfhor water planet. The pfhor were building some giant computer network under the water and had the water as a cooling system. Anyway, these two AI's wanted to take over the computer network and make it into their new home.
