  • Today a litle progress. I tried to make the don't blink house, but it turns out that lookdoor and triggerlook only work in hl2 and in singelplayer. But What I've got now, are the plans on what I will make of london. I've marked a very litle spot on google maps, tried to gues how much it would take to build, and crossed a line. I will make a litle bit of the normal flat buildings, and some of the high old buildings, so you get dark passways between buildings and beatifull tall buildings to fly around :P So, wasted almost all my time on trying to get this to work. And I also played around with doctor who :P I've took a old street I made a very long time ago, and putted doctor who in it :D

  • sweet I like the passways and buildings, It will be fun to crash land the tardis after bumping into a few buildings and stuff =D

  • I might make a option, to turn th antigravity on and off of the tardis :P And, also a nice idea, when it gets damage too much it could become out of controll :) But upcoming week I got like hell lot of work hours a day, so I won't be able to work on it this week, but then again, I might just spent a few hours on this project when I am not that tired of work. (small chance)

  • with antigrav off it wont hover but it will still fly right?...Oh that is a neat Idea too, the whole damage scale...are you going to include the extrapilator shielding?
  • Avatar of _axe_
  • No, it won't fly anymore with anitgrav off. Thrusters aren't strong enough then, if I'd made the thrusters strong enough it would spazz with antigrav on :P But it would be usrfull to evading something by just falling real fast, or I could use it when hitted. You would need to get out of the chair and turn the grav on again inside the tardis on the concole.

But I need to go to work today (again) till late. But I have some ideas I might work out tomorrow about the void (the world between parallel worlds :P)
  • Avatar of _axe_
  • Ok, I made a small box map, and tested my void (space between two parallel worlds) theory, and it turns out I was right! So next vid would probably be me showing what I mean with ma void. [editline]08:32PM[/editline] But remember, this void will be extremely undetailed, and it would only be there as function, But I will still keep it as a secret :P You'll see it, when I aplied it to my new map, wich would be london (wich I also gotta finish, got only a small start...) But I won't be able to work on this today, nor tomorrow, or friday. Maybe saturday (wich I also gotta work) And else it would be definetly sunday ;)
  • Avatar of _axe_

  • One roleplay map had a secret tardis. When you find it the doors would open and you would go inside. You would hear the tardis noise and when the doors opened you would be somewhere else. The problem was it has no tardis interior. It was just a police box. Maybe you could look at that and do something similar? Also have you seen this: [img_thumb]http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/3257/30869458.png[/img_thumb] Keep these guys updated on your work: [url]http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=763896[/url] :)

  • Ow, didn't knew someone else was making a doctor who map. :ninja: And wow, that interior looks awesome, maybe even better than mine. But I am like shit I got a brush limit to follow and they are like, models do not have limits. [editline]08:00PM[/editline] And I am very tired,. and tried to import the void into a new set up... But the void is just beeing voidy.. Anyways, I'll be working on this upcoming sunday ;), tomorrow will be a tough day, and saturday even worse.

  • looking forward to the updates :) I just watched the girl in the fireplace episode. So sad.

  • Ok, awake :P Gonna eat something, and then I promis I start mapping ;) I will have some progress in a few hours.. Also, I can't map all day.. my pc has to virus scan, wich takes up alot of cpu wich will give me a headache while mapping with a hammer wich runs frame by frame... But it rly needs to virus scan, I have alot of performance lost into nothing, also I will reinstall my mother board drivers and clean my pc from the inside :P, but first I'll map a few hours ;) [editline]10:41AM[/editline] I also cleaned up the first post a bit :P [editline]11:08AM[/editline] Ok, the void thing works now, but with a bug I still can't seem to fix, but it is only a small bug ;) still mapping further, and I'll make a vid in about a hour.
  • Avatar of _axe_
  • :p, I am almost done with the london, I also worked on this yesterday, so it ramps up very quikly today. I will make the vid in 7 mins, when the compile is done. [editline]11:45AM[/editline] Something I can already tell you is, that I have updated the tardis interior for a bit. I changed some of the textures and fixed small bugs. Now it looks even more like the tardis :P [editline]11:47AM[/editline] And I will also make a new intro :P one wich is way cooler ( I hope) [editline]12:10PM[/editline] I have added images at the first post, and cleaned it up much more :P I also added changelog pictures of my progress, of each "season"

  • Looking good, I like the bright green glow you have around the console, makes it look more realistic to the show
  • Avatar of _axe_
  • The vid is beeing uploaded, and I made a second, one jsut for mah london, and one for the void. The void is kinda too big to explain in such a short vid. [editline]12:48PM[/editline] And, I used a diffrent song than the traditional doctor who theme :P [editline]01:25PM[/editline] One episode is up second is underway (still beeing processed)
  • Avatar of _axe_
  • Nice to hear that :P And the second vid should be done any min now. [editline]01:42PM[/editline] Second one is up now
  • Avatar of jwm96
  • nice, I like how you can see the outline of the map, it makes it look like a space ghost world thing which is great...I am really liking all this so far =D
  • Avatar of _axe_
  • It is the void between two parallel worlds :P But for now, mah virus scanners will start to scan so I won't be able to map further till they are ready (wich can take 5 hours... Got two big hard drives) But that idea with a second doctor.. One from the future.. wich would be a second (fake) tardis with a npc. I can like make the tardis distorted and make the npc that way also. And to help that doctor you would need to go into the void where the tardis and the npc are real. (not like a hologram) And I can do this with items also, you found a hologram like item, but you can wlak through it?? You want to obtain it? (like the tardis key :P) go into the void and grab it :D The perfect way to hide your key :P (I can do this with the tardis also, once the tardis flew into the void, a hologram could apear at the exact spot in the real world, you would see a hologram flying but you would pass right through it.) The current status of the map is official: ready to be played. It has a slight bug wich doesn't remove the portal once the tardis closed the gab.. So that is something I would need to fix tomorrow (if I have the time after work) And this map also has just one event :(, the void gab wich breaks the world up, So I will need to think of a some other events also. Any suggestion would be welcome ;)

  • Sweet are you going to release a demo now or...? ...well actually when your virus scan is done, but the question is still the same :P
  • Avatar of _axe_
  • I don't know :$ I would like to have minimal three events in my map as demo. Else my demo would be like rly boring :$ YEa you can fly with the tardis and do some tricks with it, and be interactive with the void in my london but that would be it :$, I will make some advantages for the normal players also, instead that only the one beeing the doctor has all the power. :P [editline]08:46PM[/editline] I have changed the first post :D, is more like a menu kinda thing now :P
  • Avatar of jwm96
  • kk, I understand, Well as for events, you should make a utopia place and after a while the same thing from the end of the episode happens (not sure If you saw utopia, you probably did but I dont want to take any chances)
  • Avatar of _axe_
  • Yea I have seen that episode ;) But don't make any spoilers for maybe others who didn't :P but I am not sure I can reproduce the end, but I can make the beginning. Also I will make some "broken" places in london, where the void and the world merged :P. Like a rift wich needs to be closed by the doctor, And I have another idea, wich I will keep a secret for you all :P, something very strange but awesome in doctor who style :P. It would give the doctor (the player wich owns the tardis) a feeling he needs to handle everything with caution, and he needs to really hide his tardis, to keep it his.

  • You should have a "rift storm" after the rift is left open for a while in wich zombies are randomly spawned and stuff
