Is the Source Engine, or… Garry’s Mod, capable of handling a Creature/Monster/NPC/Moving object “Heavy Mobile Assault Platform” or not? Here are the specs:
The basic area of the one I have in mind, a super-massive one, is 6144 square feet, or 1310720 square source-units, the size of the total area it would take up in Hammer, from top-down view, is 1280x1024. It has a main gun, an anti-air gun, several guns that inhabitants can shoot at anything they want to. There are several rooms inside of it's bounds, rooms with soldiers in it, and possibly a player. The power for it comes from several "Combine's Ball" generators that move with the giant machine. It has three giant legs that could squish the player into a pancake. Some sections, like the cockpit, are divided by Combine Shield Walls, which can be disabled. It moves... within an unbelievably large level. Its legs can be disabled, and when all three are disabled it will collapse to the ground so the player can jump in.
The most important piece of info is that characters/people can walk inside of it without getting stuck to the walls. Is it possible to make something like that, something that moves?
Edit: based on the conversation below, I am being led to believe it is possible, but just extremely difficult.
And, yes, this is for GMod, not for a Source Mod. With enough effort, I’m certain it could be done in a Source Code Mod.
Oh yeah, and also, is there a better way to tag a list?
