I have worked for about a week at this now:

I try to make a role play game in a real time strategy world.

all model’s and textures and even the code are mine.

It has nothing to do with portals.
It only takes place at the time after black mesa, before the 7h war, during the portal storms.

At that time humans were forced to stay in safe citys.

thats what its about. build your city or join one and trade with resources or defend against Antlions or whatever.

svn: http://gmod-portalstorms.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/

it’s a public Alpha version.

I’m a real noob at lua and svn.

you can contact me over steam if you want.

Atm there are only a few things i made:
spawngun to build a base.
item_jetpack a jetpack.
the most base parts don’t do anytrhing exept explode on damage.
Only factory spawns entitys you enter in the list opened on q.

so what do you think about it?

Come on do you like the models?
Do you like the idea of combining rts and rpg?
Do you want to work with me?

Sound interesting! At the moment I cannot model or do anything with lua, so I can’t help you. Can’t wait until it is released!

I think you might have a chance at doing this, looks like a good idea, but since am no lua expert or svn, I think you might want to find help with a expert, but so far, I think it might have a chance to succeed.

I did add the http://forums.facepunchstudios.com/showthread.php?t=643940&highlight=explosive effects, in a edited vesion
I lowerd the amount of sprites from the explosions,
removed the smoke completely from them,
made a system to allow only a few sprites at one time,
added the “SuperExplosion” effect.

Good Idea Good luck :slight_smile:

This is a wonderful idea, I hope it gets finished. It could also be a simple fortwars aswell, not only a roleplay gamemode.

Good idea, and I will play it if you finish it.

A big update today.

I made every menu with items (such as the order panel, inventory) with icons for the items. (See the 3rd last and the last picture)
And brought it to a playable version. Atm there is only one resource (Tritanium-crystal on the 2nd last picture)

Looking good.

updated screenshot from the item list.

got plantable/defusable bombs now.

i can make map’s with hig quality afer type description if you want.
and i r.l.y like the idea and models :smiley:

  • a $ hud is needed to see your money

i don’t think that there is money in a post acocalyptic world…
but if your inventory chaneges its automatically displayed

Look’s awesome.:megamonoc:

You need a kind of resource like ‘metal’ so players can’t spam parts. Looks great so far, I would love to see this done.

the tritanium actually is a resource…

Whatever the problem is that i don’t have a server to test it.
I would really be thankful for someone wo gives me one.

And i got a research center now where you got to unlock the buildings and weapons.

We need more people like you.

It seems that we need more server…

I got your svn and i see a .info file inside it so i think to myself “oh it goes in addons” so that’s where i stick it and guess what? Nothing whatsoever. Any chance youi can tell me where that thing goes?

Portal Storms GAMEMODE…

Put it in the gamemodes folder.

Does this use a block-based building system? Looks freaking epic o.O
