All radios will play it. - Tornado TV EAS system, all TV's will show EAS when a tornado warning is given. - F1 Tornado (Speed increased from gm_tornadohighway. Now moves at slightly faster than full sprint speed.) - F3 Tornado (Just under sprinting speed, faster than the F3 in the old map) - F5 Tornado (Same speed as walking) - All buildings are destructible - Drive In theater built by Saber - Gas Station created by Saber and built to be destructible by myself, with custom explosion particle by The Vman, and completely destructible - Dark atmosphere, nighttime setting, - Custom sunset stormy skybox texture by Mr. Chop - Admin room with the ability to turn off rain, turn off/on thunder and lightning, and disable/enable tornado spawning. [u][b]HOW THE TORNADO SPAWNS:[/b][/u] 1) The timer is set randomly, it can spawn anywhere between [b]2 minutes[/b] between tornadoes, and [b]8 minutes[/b]. 1b) To turn the timer off, hit the [b]DISABLE[/b] button in the [b]Admin Room[/b] 2) The timer will determine whether or not an F1, F3, or F5 is to spawn, or if two or three will spawn at the same time. This value is [b]completely[/b] random, and not even I can determine which tornado is going to spawn. 3) Once the timer fires, the sequence begins. 4) The tornadoes will spawn randomly within 45 seconds to 2 minutes after the EAS warning. 5) The tornadoes will last for anywhere between 1 minute and 2 minutes after spawning.

Really enjoyed the last one and this looks just as good if not better.
Looks awesome.
[QUOTE=Inafinus :3;35423821]too soon man! think about all the texans![/QUOTE] Haha! I didn't even think about that..
Is that the Storm chasing unit i see there Rory :D
Oh man, I'm always pumped for these maps. I'd so be in on any attempt to map out settings from the film
Just an update since I haven't been active on the forums. Nightfall is being worked on, just very slowly. I will be handing out the VMF to a trusted friend if it is not released by the time I go to the Army. Thanks!

I certainly hopes this get finished by yourself Rory or your friend. Hope everything goes alright in the Army as well <3
I've been working on a custom tornado sound [using noises ripped from the movie] if you want to give it a listen.
Looks great!
Hey, this is off-topic to this map, but is relevant to the previous one. Is this legit, or did someone just steal this map? (as in the map that was edited, not THIS map the thread is for) [url]http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=129802[/url]

(as in the map that was edited, not THIS map the thread is for) [url]http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=129802[/url][/QUOTE] It's legit, my friend Sabre (An admin on the tornado server) said he was making an update for the map (With Rhapid's permission).
It's legit. Saber is the co-owner of my Storm Chasing server and has permission to update maps for optimization only. Only I have permission to re-release tornado series maps, using these particles, sounds, textures, etc. Saber however is allowed to fix the maps and re-release them. Tornado nightfall final progress video, release no later than Friday: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYXfFIqP4Fw[/url] Still to do: 1) Animated textures for drive in 2) TONS of more props for a realistic feel 3) Roadsigns, trees, fencing 4) Add the tornadoes
I know this is pretty late in its development, but want a custom hdr skybox for the map? [T]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1707143/Releases/tornado_edit.jpg[/T] put this together in photoshop, I want to add some stuff to the horizon like plains and some farms, need to find a source for that
And I have a custom tornado sound if you'd want to try it out. Maybe different sounds every map to keep it fresh?
Yeah PM me the files for the skybox and the sound, we'll give it a shot. I will need them by Wednesday or no can do. Does the sound file loop? I can't make them loop because I lack the program and the skill, so if it doesn't loop I can't use it.
Yup, I put the cues in. Sending soon!
oh wow, i was in the dark on this :L. Can't wait!
I have not tested it yet, but here is the new timer, compared to the old: [b][u]OLD TIMER SYSTEM (gm_tornadohighway)[/u][/b] 1) 3 logic_timers, firing each tornado randomly between 1-5 minutes on average 2) Tornado spawns, disabling all other tornado timers to prevent multiple spawns [b][u]NEW TIMER SYSTEM (gm_tornadonightfall)[/u][/b] 1) 1 logic_timer, firing a logic_case. 2) Logic_Case picks which tornado to spawn, with a more probability of an F1 3) Tornado EAS enables, warning players of a coming tornado. Also fires a random 1-2 minute timer. 4) Randomly within 1-2 minutes, the tornado will spawn. This enables another timer 5) The next timer randomly picks between 1-3 minutes, of when the tornado will despawn. The shortest chance with all timers, is an F1 tornado every 2 minutes, that spawns in 1 minute, and dissipates in 1 minute. The longest chance with all timers, is an F3 tornado every 8 minutes, that spawns in 2 minutes, and dissipates in 3 minutes. I will be testing this new timer system tonight. [b][u][EDIT][/u][/b] The new timer system works like a charm. The F5 scared the shit out of me when I was testing it. I thought the timer system wasn't working and was about to give up, when suddenly the EAS went off. I was all "cool! It works". Hit the stopwatch to see if it would spawn... a minute and a half goes by and I'm sitting there thinking "Well, maybe it isn't working". I ran out from under the gas station where it's safe, and the F5 spawned right on top of me, destroying the gas station and any hopes of survival.
Currently beta testing the map on our storm chasers server. [EDIT] Found multiple map bugs. Map was pulled from the server for editing. We won't be able to use the custom skybox texture unfortunately.
[QUOTE=Rory]We won't be able to use the custom skybox texture unfortunately.[/QUOTE] To be more detailed: The skybox texture didnt load to clients and mirrored the purple and black on half of the buildings in the map. (And just to let you know i am Saber <.< I just go by like 4 different names!)
I have added a new tornado to this map, unique to all the others from the previous versions. [b][u]VIDEO:[/u] The Transforming Tornado[/b] [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nvmpbqqc0Yw[/url]
