  • [highlight]Oh look! Spacew00t is finally releasing something! Did he mention it's all done in Hammer, no Lua involved?[/highlight] [i]I would like to take this chance to say that I'm not dead.[/i] [b]The Basics:[/b] This release includes the BSP and VMF of a sample map I made awhile back. What's special about this release is that everything was done with nothing but Hammer entities. [QUOTE=Spacew00t;8609223]First, you gas your car with one tank of fuel, which can last you up to 5 minutes [the car starts out gassed actually, but you could change that]... A certain amount of time before the tank runs out a light on the dashboard along with a beeping sound will warn you that you're running low on gas, at this point you can refuel or eventually run out and the car will shut off. Next if you ever get into a fight and your engine gets blown, like in the video, you can repair your vehicle by replacing the engine, battery, axles, and all four tires. After doing that you can then refuel your vehicle and drive away to get blown up another day.[/QUOTE] [URL="http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=476506"]Original WIP Thread[/URL] [b]The Video:[/b] [media]http://youtube.com/watch?v=BMkb_SYFYYY[/media] [b]The Pics:[/b] [IMG]http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a212/spacew00t/sample_dynamic_vehicle0001.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a212/spacew00t/sample_dynamic_vehicle0005.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a212/spacew00t/sample_dynamic_vehicle0007.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a212/spacew00t/sample_dynamic_vehicle0004.jpg[/IMG] [b]The Apology:[/b] So yeah, I first started talking about this at the beginning of 2008, and its now almost halfway through 2010, I think I got distracted somewhere along the way. Basically, I always was planning on releasing a tut on this, but now I realize that I've pretty much forgotten how it works (so good luck figuring it out!). I also realize I'm probably not going to use it in any maps in the foreseeable future. [b]The Disclaimer:[/b] It's made with Hammer and its got a lot of entities, it ain't gonna be as neat as something you could make with lua, but it will teach you how to use entities in new and creative ways. I'm not really looking for constructive criticism for how to improve it, since I don't plan to do anything with it right now, and I can't really help you with any issues it may have since I've forgotten how it works. Please remember that I did this [i]over two years ago[/i] and I've gone on to do other things since then. While you have permission to use this in your map (as long as you credit me) I would really use this instead to learn how to make your own entity based projects in Hammer. [b]The Final Word[/b] I hope this inspires others to view Hammer in a new way, and to implement other original and interesting systems into their maps. [b]The Release[/b] [url=http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=101180][img]http://www.garrysmod.org/img/?t=dll&id=101180[/img][/url] [b]tl;dr[/b] A car made in hammer without lua that goes boom and you can fix it. [highlight]Also, before you ask, Yes! I will be releasing more of my entity based prefabs in the upcoming weeks. Just give me time to find them and such.[/highlight]

  • I remember the start of the WIP thread. Congrats on finally releasing something too. I think you should work on trying to get mapping groups back to FP (like all you berry folk and those element dudes (and obviously some new groups would surface)). It would be like old times.

  • Its very nice work but is this not basically the same as VM mod?

  • [QUOTE=iamiadam;22604232]Don't think it actually works anymore tbh.[/QUOTE] It does, I tested it before I released it.

  • Oooerr, how do you work it then, when I touch parts on parts, it doesn't do anything.

  • You've got to destroy it first... Hit the engine block with a couple RPGs. [b]Edit:[/b] [QUOTE=laptopman;22605028]Did you break it first?[/QUOTE] Ah beat me to it.

  • Maybe this will inspire some old maps with garages to be remade. Looking over at Oviscity, I think, where it had a couple of garages that weren't very useful. A remake of that, including this ability, would be nice.

  • [QUOTE=minilandstan;22660799]Awesome! But why are people rating it boxes?[/QUOTE] Because they aren't reading the disclaimer.
  • Aww I thought you could actually take it apart :saddowns: But at any rate its still a cool idea

  • I remember this from just around when I joined Facepunch... I'd love to see you release that one mining map, that was really amazing.

  • I am indeed sorry for the -Bump- This is some very good use of entities within hammer, Watching your other movies on your channel is inspiring on how powerful hammer really is. I would love to see more of your talents of hammer in some more releases such as this one. I have come across very few things like this, and more than likely if we have more and more people knowing how to do such things with hammer the creativity that could come from it would be fantastic. ooh last activity 26th of july :( i hope you can respond because i would love to learn from the other things you have made.
