So a friend of mine @Bumpy had made this one of many gamemodes in gmod,
this one called gourmet race.
a side scroller race type of gamemode, where everyone starts at the start line on the left of the map and have to race to the end, running on the ground the more you run the faster you get, but there are obstacles to jump over and such which causes you to lose momentum,
players can collect candy along the way which gives them points, and the higher place you win the race the more points you get, so sometimes its not more ideal to keep jumping to the end, you should take risks to grab the candy on the floor incase you win 1st but jumping away but the guy in 2nd collected a ton of candy and got more points overall.
Oh also everyone has a hammer and can hit each other while running, launching people forwards, backwards and upwards, so people have to use that wisely or else they launch a dude from 5th place to 1st, which always amused me in the gmod version, and there are also powerups (attacks more so) you can collect along the way, that do stuff like make the ground below slippery which will cause you to not be able to gain speed running on it, ones that explode and launch people backwards, ones that stick you down for a second, and a rare one that teleports you ahead a bit, there are a couple more but that gives you the gist of what they are.
here is kinda what it was like in gmod, although will look alot different in sbox, and have different sounds and visuals, but will try keep it similar to it.
we plan on calling this Dine’N Dash in sbox, its hopefully gonna be a simple yet fun little gamemode to make and play just so we can get the grips of what we are doing, and do have plans for alot more “advance” gamemodes although this one is still alot more different that most sandbox based ones, and this one will still have work done and stuff added to it, since i did in gmod, only problem was almost 0 people played it since everyone only plays the top 5 gamemodes in the server browser
but yeah for it we have decided we want to make all new assets, or using some assets that are free to use from online that fit, but mostly we want as many models to be made from scratch and maps to use them, and textures we ideally want to use custom ones, but if they fit will use base sbox ones too.
but we want to stick to the citizen guy type style not like basic colours, at least some texture but more like simular to tf2 where it isnt photo real, but at the same time the textures look good and nice.
since that type theme fits well with the goofy type of game mode we are making.
here is some previews of models he and i have made (well map assets and some of the candy items i made) and the really early in progress map
you will see some of the random models i make in this thread throughout time.
and yes i will try get my skeleman in there as a playermodel,
