You need to post a screenshot showing some progress, otherwise this thread will be locked by a moderator.

Slightly off-topic, read the book. The film is possibly the worst movie-adaptation I have seen, it wasn't that bad a film but it did nothing new with the genre, and apart from calling the main character Robert Neville, it bears no resemblance to the book I found it slightly depressing that they turned such an original storyline into a zombie-apocalypse flick.

Sorry got a little carried away there, point is, read the book, it's only a couple of hundred pages long but it's brilliant. Oh and post a screenshot

Looks like you haven't got anything done according to your little list there.

People aren't going to help you unless you have something to show. Have you actually started anything on this project of yours or have you just created this thread for the sake of announcing it. This board is called Work In Progress for a reason. Search the FPSC media board and you will find a few of the models that you're requesting here. I know there's a dog somewhere. As for vehicle models I suggest purchasing Dark Matter:
http://darkmatter.thegamecreators.com/
Dark Matter has a fighter jet, cop car, a humvee and random vehicles. You can then make the models FPSC ready using entity creator. Just keep searching the forums and you're bound to find most of what you're looking for.

EDIT:
Oh and I just found this. A while back someone made a wolf enemy character for FPSC X10. I'm sure it could be retextured as a dog. I know it's for X10 but it's worth trying it out in X9. You never know.

Not yet, still waiting for the full version, I am making the base maps in the trial and will finish them up in the full version, does an M4 come with the full version? and I might need a new dog, the dog I founf looks nothing like Sam, and I dont know how to make textures, and I can't get it to follow me, or the zombies to attack me Any suggestions?

EDIT: What happened to my first post?

Ok I've just watched the video and it’s clear you've got a lot of work to do. Please note I'm not flaming you, I'm just trying to help. First of all you're using too much stock media. There's plenty of free media around the forum which will improve the look of your game greatly. Also there's plenty of free media on The Game Creator store that you can download. Try using different segments as well because the stock WW2 segments don't exactly scream out "brilliant computer game".

Also think about where you place your entities because there's blood in random places and that stock blood decal looks awful. Find a replacement. Add some light maps in your level because that can make your game look 10 times better if done correctly. But before you do anything else, please take care with how you place your segments. You've got segments overlapping in some places! This really ruins the feel of the game and it's so easy to rectify as well. One last thing, why is there suddenly no ceiling half way through the video? Next time you make a video to showcase your game you should make sure your level is complete or at least looks complete. Don't show what isn't there. That's all. I wish you all the best with your project.

I can't add light, if you have ever seen I AM LEGEND, they can't survive in the light, that's why I purposely made it dark. And thanks for the criticism, I will try and fix all of that.

Then you need to find ways of using it strategically. Such as placing a huge light outside the building and placing many holes and cracks in the walls etc to let it flood in. If you aren't going to place any light in the game then there is really no point in posting it up here, because no matter what you do, it'll always look bland and amateurish.

Confuceus once said: "I am legend takes place at night time so I don't need to add light into my game" Oh wait, that was you. Sorry for that, but one big tip I have for you is the only time you should use light is WHEN it takes place at night. Now ponder that for a moment.

No, the full version does not come with an M4. Well, it has a gun that's supposed to be from the M series I think, and that should do. You should also be able to find a version of it with hands. This looks alright, just add a few entities around.

you will need to have the gun on fps creator before you can add the hands version though, overwise the gun will just appear as white.

i could send you the gun from my copy of fps creator, but i'm not sure if it's legal. you'll have to check with someone, and if they give the all-clear, you can have it. but until then, i'm not giving it to you.

@maxiqueen123: You were new at FPSC and mapping once too, right? I doubt you just opened a mapping program and create a really good level, right off the bat. It takes time and practice to become good, in addition to the support and advice of your peers.

@JJB Productions: I can't wait to see what you'll do with your full version. (NOTE: I've never seen I Am Legend, but I've seen the Omega Man, which I Am Legend is supposed to be based off of. So I won't be able to off and critique on the story.

Thanks, I will do my best. I have made a intro, it combines the movie's intro with my own:

In the year 2009, Dr. Alice Krippin invented a miracle cure for cancer. Three years later, 99.9% percent of the world's population is dead or infected, all done by the Krippin Virus, aka: KV.

Doctor/Colonol Robert Neville, somehow immune to the virus, is the last human survivor in New York and perhaps the world.But, the last man on earth, is not alone.

Mutant KV victims, or Nightwalker, lurk in the shadows, waiting for him to make a fatal mistake, perhaps mankind's last.But Neville is driven to find a cure to save mankind using his own immune blood. But he knows he is outnumbered, and quickly running out of time.

Now, you are being put into his shoes. Can you find a cure? Can you save mankind? Can you survive?

What do ya think?

Hey man, the story is really good the way you summed it up. And I hope to see that intro, it sounds very cool! I just had some ideas for you.

For the darkness issue, I watched the video and it wasn't bad or anything, but thats not to say that there isn't things you could work on a little. (I won't badger you with all the things previously stated by Opposing Force which were constructively criticising).
One thing you could do is make use of Errant AI's LED white light that he very generously released to the community! Sort of, bring the ambience level down to 0, throw your player in a creepy apartment like place shown in the video, and provide them with EAI's wonderful gadget! Pic shown below - there is not a single lightmap in that room. (You can still have areas where natural light floods into the building through holes and windows, which could also be the places you'd have to lure the monsters so that you could take out your weapon and actually see where your shooting. An extra depth to your gameplay that would definitely be scary!)

Here's a link to the LED light, just scroll down -
http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=147151&b=24

For the segment recommendation, and the change of, I suggest if you get anything for now it's Adrian Online's superb segment pack he generously released to our forum, link below -
http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=151108&b=24

Otherwise, just keep pluckin' along man and you'll do great.

It's very good advice, the reservoir of free media lying around here is dynamite!

Thanks! Those segments are great, thanks for telling me!

And FredP, heres an email that I got from a moderator:

Really the only people who are legally entitled to use FPSC media are those who have bought it - so if whoever you are giving it to has FPSC then it's no problem, but if it's for DBPro, then it would be a problem if they wanted to sell their game.

If it's for a freeware DBPro or GDK game, or just for messing around with in DBPro/GDK, then I doubt anyone would complain, especially if the weapon has been modified. This is by no means permission!, but a while ago Lee included a FPSC generated level, with textures as a demo with a DBPro update, so legally speaking it should be ok to use FPSC media in DBPro. If anyone was to kick up a fuss, then it would be forum goers. If anyone mentions that the gun is from FPSC then your friend could just lie and say he bought FPSC as well.

If it's for a non TGC product, then it would be illegal to distribute the model, I'm not sure how much it would bother the copyright holders (not even sure if that's TGC), but it would probably be noticed if it was uploaded for a source mod or something like that.

I do have FPS Creator, so it is legal

right, judging by what i read there, only fpsc users are entitled to it, and you're using the free version.
i want fredp to check this before i give anyone anything.

anyway, i HAVE READ THE I AM LEGEND BOOK, and here is a (brief) outline of the story.

you are robert neville, the sole survivor of a deadly plague that has turned the entire population of the world into "vampires"
IN THE BOOK NEVILLE DOES NOT HAVE A DOG, and he is constantly tormented by women, memories and his neighbour. "...come out neville..."

he spends his days making stakes, hanging garlic and going around killing vampires. in the evenings, he uses drink to take the pain away.

slowly, neville stoops lower and lower into a drunken depression, until one day, he comes back to his house to late, and the vampires are waiting for him outside...

i can't tell you anymore for fear of spoilers, but i have some enemie info...


1. they are not zombies, they are vampires, they can walk, and talk, and torment neville.
2. they are not "vampire" vampires, neville finds out that...

.they are infected with a virus that uses a clear film to keep a human body alive, and when the film is punctured, it will instantly grow back, unless kept open. (i.e a stake)
.sunlight kills the virus/bacteria, which is why they only come out at night.
.not all of them are put off by crosses, it is only a phsycological thing that onl affects still alive christians. he later realises that his neighbour, who is a jew, is equally as put of by the jewish bible.


so if i do see an i am legend game, I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANY ZOMBIES AT ALL.

hope that clears it up for you.

those are the "vamzombiez" from the film. and yes, i have seen it, it is very good.

if you are going to make an i am legend video game, make sure you either uses the film or the books backdrop, don't mix them together.

for example, you could use a normal zombie, rigged up with different animations, that goes quite fast, that would do fine.

I don't know if it looks like sam, but you can always retexture it:
Type a "dog" in search and look for the best model, and maby do some retexture, or if you can't ask somebody to do some. There is a lot of generous people in the forums!
