JaredxD

Story: A large Russian Terrorist group under the name of [undecided](<-still thinking of a good terrorist group name) have been gathering weapons and top secret information about the U.S army bases. You have been told that they have collected a nuclear weapon, and have almost gathered enough information to use it on the United States of America. They have captured 2 hostages of the American Alpha Squad, and are forcing the detonation codes out of America. If we don't comply, they will kill our team members and detonate the weapons. Your mission is to infiltrate various bases and bunkers to collect date to destroy the Nuclear weapons, and save your team mates, and kick some serious butt along the way!

Description+Info: The Final Strike is Action-Adrenaline based,
but with lots of large battle scenes and sneaky enemies.
It will also require stealth to pass un noticed through gurads at times, and other things for the player to work out.

Contact: See my profile.

[Watch in HD!]

I would also like to put out a MASSIVE thank you to PekelaarSF For doing voice acting for this game. Thanks!!

Other Info:
I have alot more screens, but uploading them takes time with a fail net lol
I have so far completed around 3 levels, and have got ideas for a few more.
I plan on doing at least 6 levels, and intend to give the player a hard game, and will try and get to an hours gameplay at least in the full release.

PLEASE! note:
Yes, I am young(Can't say how young), Yes, I am rather new at this,
BUT! I want ANY Comments/Critiscism that you have to give, I want you to be honest, and tell me how I can improve! Please leave a comment with your true thoughts on this!
Don't just say you like it because I am young!

Thanks for reading this,

Regards, Jared.

I like it Jared... Long time since I've spoken to you on here, I think last was when we were working on that Segment pack. Anyways, good to hear from you, and the screens look pretty good. Keep em coming

P.S: I like the silenced pistol

@ Nigezu: Thanks, its the kind of look im going for, glad I achieved it

@anayar: Im always here, just rarely post lol. Yeah it has been a while, and im glad you like the screens

The silenced M9 SE(Avaialbe in EAI's TGCS) is used in level 3 + 4 to provide the palyer with stealth, rather than a large shotgun

@Dominik: Im not sure how to add illumination maps, but I would be glad to learn how!
Thanks for the c&c !

Looks good. I like the athmosphere. And it seems you've got illuminationmaps on some of the lights now, nice.

To add illuminationmap shader on stock lights, right click the entity and you get to entity properties. Scroll down to 'Optional Visuals\Effect'. Select 'effectbank\illuminationent\illuminationent.fx. Stock lights have both needed textures (_D2 and _I) so applying illumination shader shouldn't be harder than that. At least it works for me.

Черна игла (Cherna Igla) (Black Needle) ? Just a suggestion.

The level design could use some improvement and a few normal mapped segments won't hurt.The AI could be better and a lot more intense (I'll leave that one up to you to figure out),but other than that I like it.I'd say I'd enjoy playing it when this is done.

Thanks for the comments there Gencheff, I am still working on the level design, and Im not sure how to script at all, but yeah I do agree, it is not exactly the best AI possible lol.

I like the name for the terrorist group you suggested, would you mind if I used that?
Thanks for all those idea Gencheff!

Jared.

If I did mind why would I suggest it to you,of course you can use it lol.

I can help you with the scripting if you want.I can write some better AI scripts and a good suggestion would be to make them follow waypoints as well,to make them guarding and not staying in one place until the player shows up.

Hows AlQueida? (I think thats how its spelt) lol jks.
How about this?
the terrorist group is so secret that you dont know the name?
It may be skipping a corner, but then you can have sum1 say the name at the end, which keeps a little suspense, and also means that you get longer to think of a name.
However, here is some I thought of;

Русского оружия
Russian Arms

Русские организации для американских Истребление
Russian organisation for American Extermination

How are those 2?

absolutely.

looking at some of the newer screens this project really appears to be coming into its own. still generic enough to be a great, fun shooter, but not niche looking enough to be dismissed as another cramped, dark FPSC game. I like your style. if you ever need anything, add me on skype (isaacpreston)

watching the videos, I can tell by the never-dropping frame rates that optimization is important to you as well, which is good, considering the large number of developers that overdetail their maps. (and then complain that they won't build with enemies)

never dropping below 59, even while recording is astounding. even with the help of fenix mod v116, WWC cant even boast that.

I do think, however, that you should work on your level design, as some parts of it look a little bit like entities were strewn about willy nilly. try not to over use crates. and make sure that large rooms have structural support, and aren't just the interior of a big box.

glad I watched both those videos, It was about time we got another couple of good ones up on youtube.

Thanks Bugsy,
Which levels did you notice the over used crates? I will removie a few, as I did think some levels looked like they were thrown about(I admit, some kinda were lol) and I just wasn't sure if I should remove a couple.

I will go over each level tonight and add structural supports into the large rooms, that only takes a few mins

Thanks again for the input Bugsy!

don't just "add structural supports"

make sure that they're tasteful, not over used, and work well with the scene.

UPDATE: 6/12/2010

Hey guys,
Sorry its been a while since I've updated this, but I've started work on level 5, which is a city/town level. This level is a heavy wip, with no enemies as of yet, and the design is still in progress, but I fear I might have trouble with the memory cap, does anyone know how to disable the memory cap? I have already changed the setup thingy memorycapoff to 1, but I still worry about that.

Anyway, here are some screens, when I am happy with all the enemy placement, I will upload a video for yas all

Many thanks to Bugsy for support, tips, inspiration, and other stuff!






Comments and Crits welcome, and are wanted!
I still have not finished the design of this level, as I stated above, but I wanted to post some screenies so this thread doesn't die , and so that I can get some ways to improve!

Thanks alot,
Jared.
(Oh yeah, in case you were wondering, the lights are coming from the moon, you cant see it in any of the screens)

THe lamp's foot on the second screen is floating... well I didn't have anything else to whine about, now did I!?

The screens look very good! The city level looks cool, altho it seems to lack lighting at points. I like the backalleys thou, for sure! It's a cool game and I'll be sure to follow on how this will turn out.

Heya all,
Again, sorry for the lack of updates, I have still been working on this though
Its just a bit uninspiring having 760 views and only 36 posts, 50% of them being my own lol

Anyway, working on a new level that will take place in the main characters house, pretty much a "Get used to the controls" thing.

Just started this level, but here are some screens




I have never really tried designing a house before, I think it looks OK so far

Comment please!!!

nice, but In my opinion, it's far too dark in there. try making it a little brighter so the player, who is just learning, can get used to moving around.

This is probably because of people like me who rarely ever comment on screenshots but daily check if a demo is up.

And you can trust me, that while it might be uninspiring to have only few reactions to screenshots, it is very annoying to comment on tons of screenshots only to read "the procet is cancelled/in hiatus/I am waiting for 1.19/Need a modeller to continue/my Pc crashed and I lost all my files/ the dog ate my game"(which is the case for 9 out of 10 threads)

So please don't think people on this forum are just to lazy to comment the new screenshots, they secretly admire. It's just that some people don't care about screenshots at all.

In case you find my grammar and spelling weird ---> native German speaker ^^

Hey every one,
Good news, I have completely finished the city design for level 5, and the fun part (enemies) are almost done.
I just have one issue, Is there a way to bypass the memory cap? I am using V118 B3, and I think it might be a major issue for levels five and six.


Here's an ingame Screenshot on the highest possible level, and it shows most of the city





Sidenotes:
I just sent my payment in for Model Pack 10, so it will be good to have a better variety of weapons, along with MP4 and MP 22, MP4 will be great for me to use to have a couple of civilians, a couple of retextures and I'll be good
And I got Mp22 as I might need the media sometime in the future, as it is a great pack.

Also sorry for the triple post.

remember, maybe put some contrasts to the dreary blue moonlight to attract players to different places. is it is, the map from above looks flat and in need of varying colours.
