If you've been in the mapping section for the past few months, you've probably seen [url=http://forums.facepunchstudios.com/showthread.php?t=569428]MonkeyJoe's awesome tornado map thread.[/url] Well, I got impatient, and thanks to GizmoGTI, I found a tornado prefab, and threw it in gm_flatgrass. After a few half assed attempts, I got it semi working, so I present to you: Gm_Flatgrass_tornado!

  • Damn, i'm so going to build a cool house, and let tornado to rip it in to a pieces. Thanks, pal. :)
  • Is it still all the time, or does the tornado actually move around in the map? [b]Things to improve:[/b] [i]The light_environment looks very bleak, try to change the color in it. See this: [u][url]http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Sky_list[/url][/u] Add a 3D Skybox with hills surrounding the map, so we won't have to see the ugly edges on the actual play area. See this: [u][url]http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/3D_Skybox[/url][/u] You can also add a few houses and structures of your choice.[/i] By doing this, you've proven that you dedicate a little more time in your maps. It will make it look much better and professional.

  • [QUOTE=bumtown]Why not just tell garry to improve flatgrass in the process?[/QUOTE] Flatgrass is already finished, it's released and in use. It serves the intended purpose. I'm just saying that he could atleast create the map itself on his own. Instead of just picking a map that someone did (In this case, Garrys map) and put a prefab (that someone else did, aswell) into one piece. No, that's not called mapping. That's called assembling.
  • So you would rather he didn't release this? It's flatgrass with a tornado in it, quit bitching.
  • [QUOTE=Masson]So you would rather he didn't release this? It's flatgrass with a tornado in it, quit bitching.[/QUOTE] I don't think you understood my point. And no, it's not bitching. It's criticism.
  • Hellsten is right, I didn't really map anything at all. I just threw a prefab in flatgrass. I never claimed that I did anything more than that. Personally, I think it serves its purpose, which is to have a half decent tornado, to use while waiting for MonkeyJoe's map. [b]EDIT:[/b] Oh, and the tornado does move you guys.
  • [QUOTE=RandomE][b]EDIT:[/b] Oh, and the tornado does move you guys.[/QUOTE] You got my download. :) *watches my Space Station get ripped apart* NO!!! *removes station and places it again* NO!!! :)
  • nice job but does it randomly pick a spot and die? me and my curiosity :(
  • [QUOTE=Masson]So you would rather he didn't release this? It's flatgrass with a tornado in it, quit bitching.[/QUOTE] I think he's trying to say it's a cool map but flatgrass is meant to be a low-quality building ground, no distractions or anything to do in the map itself. Since there's a tornado, that diminishes its purpose. So to make it look good, improve the skybox.
  • This is a nice try, but why don't you just use a tornado gun inside the map? [url=http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=20733][img]http://www.garrysmod.org/img/?t=dll&id=20733[/img][/url] If you want my opinion, at least try to make it look as though you put some effort into this.
  • The tornado gun is good but if you change your weapon to physgun the tornado is gone.
  • I play this map all the time, because im obsessed with tornadoes. Thank you for making this, it will make me feel less queezy until GM_tornadochase is released :D
  • Maybe it is not best. But before TornadoChase is relased, it's good alternative than watching the same videos of TC few times a day. Thanks for this, even if you didn't put any effort to make it.

This is better

  • [QUOTE=Hellsten;12839944]I don't think you understood my point. And no, it's not bitching. It's criticism.[/QUOTE] You DO realize that the point of this is to just dick around with a tornado. It wasn't supposed to be some big project or anything.
  • It needs more power and to go faster, we shouldn't be able to out run the tornado.
  • I think its time to change from a 200mb graphics card to a 1 gb one. :\ This is somewhat laggy for me. I hate somewhat lag. O/F Anyone know a great graphics card that will actually let me be able to do awesome stuff? o_o

  • [QUOTE=find me;14104962]It needs more power and to go faster, we shouldn't be able to out run the tornado.[/QUOTE] yeah thats true, if it went faster, id probably have more fun. Running it out kind of sucks. But this was a slap together so dont expect a GOD-LIKE map.
  • [QUOTE=specops67;14158441]GM_TORNADOCHASE RULES by:monkeyjoebla or monkey joe wateva[/QUOTE] We all know that(or should by now)
  • How i can change the tornados course? Im new in Hammer tool so.... Tell me! I hate when it goes the same little circle all the time...
