Aight, since I have launched the idea then left you like a prick and because of this I'm ashamed (no kidding), I'd like to do a map for it. Can I join and make a map ?

The prison.

Can you make me a brief summary about limitations ? I mean, can I use custom media, shaders... ? Is there a storyline ? (Ie : should I make the player begin in a cell).

@ Madcow02 Did Pain add you yet to the Google Drive files?

@ seppgirty Just uploading "level 4" second test build. Much better now after overhaul of floor segments.
Scripts are mostly done and putting finishing touches on everything.
Attached a quick pic of final level4 "Eddie's Office" ....

@seppgirty Although I dropped out of this project I just wanted to ask, how do you envision the prison level to be? I made this section that may be used as a hallway in that level. What do you conceptually think about it?

A prison would be concrete and steel. I don't know of any prisons that have waynes coating and designer lights.

@seppgirty I meant the layout. I forgot to switchover the textures and objects. I am going for each floor to be 2x2x2 segments to give a sense of verticality. And the 1x2 windows for isolation chambers or sorts.

@seppgirty I think the environments should be taller (personal opinion) as the height of segments is about only 8.3 feet.

Nice pics seppgirty, looks great!
I like the open setting. Those screen shots, did you re-texture everything
or is that with the shaders ON ?

That is with the shader on. The catwalk is from the scifi pack. I made the shelves myself. Tried to make them as low poly as i could. I found that the sincity shader turns yellow to red. Also, it doesn't seem to work with dynamic objects.

glad you like it.

Yes, I noticed that also, but not a problem since we're using the sin-city shader.

I too am going thru all my media and reducing when possible (mostly the textures)
But I like the "cat walk" looks great with the red

Looked at the picture from eddies office, pretty cool but You can see the polygons on the left and right Character, try the fastbone shader on these Characters and it shourld look round and smooth. If that doesnt work its a model problem and vertex, model needs to be cleaned (optimized)......

Working on Level 5 now. Scrap (junk) yard done. Adding thug's and scripts slowly.
Noticed that the built in screenshot doesn't capture the Reshader effect?

Looks good ncmako. That gate gives Me Half Life 2 vibes! But the area looks very small, are You not going to build it bigger? And perhaps a fence around it all wourld do the trick...

I dunno why but I get this feeling that we can make a Stalker-esque looking game in this engine (if textured and lighted right). That is what I think about the pics @ncmako.

@ seppgirty & everyone
I got "Amber Summers" rigged up for my level. Everything is coming together now. Just debugging scripts and working out little
problems. Here's some quick in play pic's ( I found Frap's takes screenshots and retains the shader effect )
I did one quick build and quickly found out I had to change some stuff around ( mostly lighting )
Hope to post a working build this week on Google Drive...
Here's a quick vid showing a little game play. You can't see the rain (post-process rain) but it is there.

@ncmako Great job! This feels so amaizing and the level design is so innovative. After completing this project, if you have any time, I got a few concepts in mind.

@everyone I have put my level in a temporary hiatus because my end semester exams are going on now, I will post my work after June 2nd (my exam ends that day).

Update

My previous map's lightmapping got busted, as in - my deleted lights wont delete from the build and run altho I they are not present in the editor. Also, the city level was removed and instead a hotel level was done. So, I have thought, why not integrate them both and the following screenshots are the result. I intend to add some more environment items and change the default lighting a bit (make it purple) and change the skybox to a night one.

For the exterior part I have made a small sewer system to get around and find additional supplies (hugely inspired by Dishonored and Deus Ex).

Mriganka Fantastic work Looks sweet ! ! !
As for the "light build" problem...when making changes to lights I tend to delete all files in the levelbank\testlevel folder ( it's safe to delete all the files in there, but don't touch the "Level1.zip" file)
This will force a new light mapping to build with the next "test run" or "build" you make. When you get it just right the way you want it,
clean out that folder, do one test run, then your build, and you'll noticed a smaller build size to boot

Here's a test of Eddie's death scene, let me know what you think and any thing different?
This will play out up high on a building or crane type structure.

I see you have been paying attention to Bugsy's animation tutorials. I really like it. Do you have a rough demo of the level you could let me try? just to see how it flows to this point.

@ncmako Do you think the last level would be a bossfight or would you make this scene in the top of the crane in the junkyard? It would be great if the player goes first to his office ti find out that Eddie has taken the girl hostage and has taken her on top of the crane.

@ Seppgirty Just uploaded a rough demo. Worked all night to get music tracks somewhat right.
Still a lot of bugs to work out. Some "thugs" not reacting fast enough yet, will look into it.

@ Mriganka
Quote: "It would be great if the player goes first to his office "

Exactly what I was thinking Will put in an office next with some cut-scenes. This demo is missing that part.
Don't worry, will work on that today.

Yeah, with the longer summer days, getting a little less time to work on this in the evening.
So I'm working extra on the weekends

Hmmm... I like the graphics.Very well done. Now, are we calling the "GAME COMPANY" Dark City? I was thinking that the game would be called Dark City and that this chapter is "Grip of the octopus." (working title) Was thinking the the company could be called "TGC community games" or "Bamber's Boys games" Would really like your guys input.
Really good work ncmako. Keep it up.

No, no...everything I do is a "place holder" until decided upon later on
I like " TGC community games" ... but after thinking about it, is your story we're using
actually a series ??? (more is yet to come..hmmm) Kind of like Stephen King work.
Could this be "Dark City Series - Grip of the Octopus"

I would like to think that our game is one chapter in a series. Just for example... Say mriganka wanted to do his own separate game in the Dark City series. He could do a game where you play as a bad guy. Johnny "The Fist" O'Hara. A young thug who is working his way up the Malone crime family ladder by robbing banks and taking out opposing gang leaders. The game would take place in the Dark City universe. There's a ton of ideas you can come up with when you develop a world.

I can see this going many places. You decide.

Oh yeah, almost forgot. Check out this link. From 2012, meows needed a multi-game launcher
for 5 games. Exactly what we're looking for! Zombie Killer made the program. Look about half way down.
https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/195895
It perfect for us, Each Level has to be complete before next level. One catch, we need to figure out a way
to write to a simple file after the level "win" to unlock next level.
Ask in the DP Pro forum if anyone remember this? Or can help out?
