@Mriganka Your screen shots look great. If you feel comfortable with interiors you should do the "Warehouse"?
I put my name toward Chapter 4 already "Shipping Docks"

That would be either the prison or the warehouse.

@ all
Since we are using the sin city shader, have that on when doing your lighting. Sprinkle little red light through out the level since that is the color that shows up.
Remember that since this is a freeware game we can get away with using opensource models as long as we give credit.

In the model folder add a package of prison models, for who is designing that level.

@Mr Love I got the gun from the GameGuru forums. I haven't applied the shader/maps yet. But with them it looks pretty good.

@Everyone If no one is doing the prison level I could try that too. I have some interesting ideas for the design of that level. Should I make a build on some gameplay elements that I have in mind with the template of the prison or warehouse levels?

A couple questions...

Concerning Black Ice Mod...
What version are we working with? Will that remain constant or can we update as we go?
Do I need to setup the shader/s we will use to develop or can that be done later?

Concerning the project...
Is the original poster still with us and does he intend to get involved?

@all Just noticed at the main TGC home page all links to FPSC classic (and Dark Basic) have been removed.
Went to download some model packs I wanted. It's very hard to find a link to the repository now.
One link left at the very bottom of the home page. I think I will spend this weekend saving all packs
and archiving them somehow if needed?

yes, work with the shader on. I already posted that twords the top of the page.

@mrignaka
Yes, post your trial levels

@ nc mako
As i said before, Iwill not be doing a level. I suck at it.

I think that because no one is buying the the new tgc products lee wants to hide the free ones. I expect that fpsc and DB pro will be deleted from these boards soon. so make sure your e-mails are on the google docs.

There is a Facebook group for FPS Creator in case anyone wants to join. And we should save all the available models and model packs while we still can. Unfortunately all my external HDD crashed so I had to download the model packs again. As of now I am saving all the available Cosmic Prophet model packs and some other packs that I have found over the course of time. It is also very unfortunate that starmind001's website isn't available anymore. Dayum.

My grandfather recently passed away. So the gameplay demo may take a few days more. but in the meantime I have found some gems in the forums that has fairly good feel to them (even if they are far from revolutionary).

I find their gameplay to be entertaining because they are fairly simple which can be used to an advantage for making them exploration based (like Doom or Wolfenstein). I am trying to make the gameplay with the same (slow) pace with added tacticality (like polygon based hit detection) and smarter AI (which I will attempt making later).

1. Sands of Myth Demo v003

2. Wild West Gold Hunter - Download

3. Anderson & the Legacy of Chtulhu

There is many others as well but I have not found them yet or their download links have expired.

BTW, can anyone good at scripting make an AI script where (if the player is seen) the enemy goes to an entity or marker or triggerzone and crouches (stimulating cover) and then shoots the player. If the player is not detected then the enemy will follow a waypoint or just stay there. And if the player shoots his weapon which has a large soundscale (within a radius), the enemy will rotate towards the player and come to him. If the soundscale is somewhat medium then he will only rotate towards the player. And if too low then he wont detect the player. This may allow for a bit of stealth in the game.

EDIT

Look at what I found! Search for the scripts in an attachment down below in the thread!

Hey guys - I would like to first apologize for my absence. The IT world is a scary place. One day you are looking at a nice easy 40 hour work week, then you blink and you are 70 hours in and forget what day it is. Let me review the sudden increase in activity which I did not expect and I will come back with our next goals and I think it is time to name responsibilities or titlesomething so that everyone knows what they are supposed to do.

Give me the night to do this since I am still at work currently.

Please in the mean time let me know own what you are doing currently now in a. High level detail.
Example:

Writing up the story.

Or

Modeling the main character.

Or

Designing level 1

Or

Creating music for Level 1.

Then I will get a better idea here and much faster.

Pain.

If you read the cut scene for that level you will see that it is a harbor port.Jack jumps out the window and into water. Think New York harbor port.
But, if you want to do a truck stop then do it.

You would have to build a folder of each level with its subfolders. So do not mix the work of levels.

Hello everyone!

@seppgirty - You have done well! Thank you!

NEW RULE!
So I am going to ask that when we start working on a task that we list the task on the [u]Game Dev Google Sheet (Excel Spread Sheet)

I created a new Tab called Task List. I would like us to state exactly what we are working on and who is working on it.

Simply, Fill out the list of the current items you are working on and you can follow my example that I included. (attached is the example)

If you do not have access to this sheet, please let me know!

This will help us keep track of who is working on what and when! (Covering the most important part of a project or team! Who, What, When)
This will help us stay organized and work more efficiently so we do not do double the work or maybe see that we are working on something that needs to be done towards the end of the project rather than the beginning.

I wanted to see how everyone would feel about a Skype Meeting? or Phone conference - Assuming everyone speaks English

Nomad Soul provided a nice updated version of Black Ice Mod: 10.0 (See below)

Not sure on the original poster. I have not heard anything.

Here is a full HD (1920x1080) build of Black Ice Mod (v10.1) if you want to use this for the project.

You, please, should reset the folders on google drive.

A folder for each of the 4 levels.

Example:

Prison Level Designer:
With its sub folders: Model, script, segment, entity, shader.

To raise what is necessary for that level without mixing between levels.

Regarding Skype, I do not speak English. I can only write.

The help I can provide would be scripts, models and ideas to create a map.

Now that I remember, someone asked for a script with a stealth system. I have one that needs to be modified, just add that the npc is hidden from the player. I add them to the main scripts folder for testing and if you need to modify I'll work on it.

Sorry for the double post, I do not know where to add it now that all the folders have changed. At the moment I think one is called scripts. When they lower it, they can erase it, so as not to generate confusion.

@arrojar

You can add it to the folder called: Over All Scripts.

If it is Level specific, please add it to the level folder that it belongs to.
Example: If the script will only be used in Level 1, place it in the Level 1 folder.

@ncmako
I would say we would all need to have the packs in order to build the game, but if the main person building the entire game owns the packs it will not be a problem.

@seppgirty Let's go with a small section of a district and block off the area like done in games such as Dishonored. Then we could do the city. If we go simple route we should do the hotel.

What media am I limited to? just TGC packs? or can I expand a bit?

What year should the city be reflecting?

Night or Day? - time of day?


What country? or are we replicating an actual city?

Yes, I had an idea pop up (not very often these days) and I think it may workout well ? No scripts required at all, built in already!
Made a quick video, noticed after I turn ON the "sin-city" effect the RED text is blotchy? Can easily change color if needed.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_zoYx2CPmk&feature=youtu.be
Let me know what you think, it's just a decal. Attaches to any weapon with a "smoke" bone
