It's one of those things you can't explain.

By the way, I grew up with the SNES and N64 and my personal favourites are Final Fantasy 4 and 6.

I take my tea seriously, oh and my story writing.

This question has probably been asked a lot of times but when do you hope to release this game?

There is nothing exciting to talk about...only a bit more leveldesign

****************

Thanks for all the input, folks!

@Leongamerz & OmegaWolf98: Glad you like it!

@Egg Head of Peace and Love: Thats an elite guard of the Order fraction (formerly named "time"...not sure what it will be in the game) The white one carries battlerifles, sniperrifles or a special weapon while the blue-white one will have assaultrifles or RPG's.

I can't show much action scenes as I don't have the VWeaps for the guns yet and some enemies will have scripts that makes them react to the level (take cover behind something or move through a door...stuff like that) so ...combat will come towards the end of the production. Until then, I show you some characters that stand around

@Tinker and Uzi Idiot: Thanks!!

@Tinker: Sure dude! *CLICK*

I'm also writing a tutorial where you can follow me through the creation of an entire level for shavra!

C&C on the screenshots is welcome as usually

The screens look great and all (plus for some reason I just want to play so I can jump from the top platform to my death lol)...
BUT, I can clearly make out the American flag on that soldier's uniform still. Perhaps erase it completely... or you could
just replace it with their faction logo.

I just thought I'd point that out.

Your signature has been eaten by a llama. Sorry; that's just the way it goes.

@gameBuilder I'm sure he has linked it countless times.
So I'll do it.
Fullscreen shader: http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=172965&b=24
the character shader might be the shader from the Viral Outbreak pack, or 'skinning_norm_spec.fx'

Beautiful palette you have.
Your skills to repaint the models is awesome...
When you can and if you like try paint one of TOYARTWAR characters.
Could be fun...

great work Wolf keep up!

@Tinker: Thank you very much!

@Gamebuilder: Page 1 of this thread, second post by me. I'm not going to link to it again, just read the thread!

@Alemar: So I should retexture a model for you? Thats not a problem, feel free to E-Mail me about it. Thanks though!

Thank you !
here the link to download.Is the same from my thread .

Devil_template

White_guy_template

The first is just a reference to find the front and back.The white-guy is a empty template.Is free for everyone to paint but I believe that the art from you could be fantastic...

*********************************

Direct your eyes now on the new update
I'm half done with the level that will be explained completely in the leveldesign tutorial I recently spoke pretty much off. You can see what it is. Its a dark matter generator core that needs to be shut down in a puzzle.
Comments and critics are appreciated as usually! (large image ahead)

Stunning use of bloom!
I love everything apart from one thing; you appear to be using a fur shader from the '2006 - Free Shaders Pack' but it is the one that has the bad specular effect. I'd recommend using the one by Evolved.

Incredible work!

Thanks! Even though the bloom is happening by itself, I am just adjusting the lights to it

I like the specular of it...it gives it some undefinable depht...like a black hole...or an incredibly polished black pearl.

hve you thought of making an aura around the big black ball in the middle of the core? Kind of like a real black hole? Heres a pic to show what I mean. You could make a dynamic 4 poly 2d plane entity with a black hole texture on it and give it a script that makes it rotate.



Maybe make it a bluish color to fit with the game more. Anyway your game is looking amazing as always!

Hi Wolf, I`ll call you after gamescom is over. And the game looks great. But saying that is like saying "Water is wet".

@Hamburger

technically a real black hole doesn't have any color...or light for that matter (science pun), so there isn't any refraction or light interaction in a real black hole. just saying.

This level looks really interesting, I'm curious about what kinds of puzzles you have.

Technically you can't actually see dark matter either (or touch it) But it would still look very cool anyway... It's a video game so it doesnt have to be "real" too

I would love to! Drop me a line whenever something comes to your mind.

@OmegaWolf: it has an intro cinematic. Well, elaborate on what you mean by "storyzones"

@Hamburger and Egg Head of Doom: Its not a black hole...nor dark matter (I make something up). And I won't change anything on it. Adding such an aura would be a great idea, but it would require additional work I dont want to do XD

Quote: "I'm curious about what kinds of puzzles you have."


Nothing too fancy...the usual first person shooter stuff and some item collecting.

No! I dont like these at all. Its way too much work for something that the gamer will likely skip later on anyway. The entire story will be told ingame.

no Cut scenes

I agree Wolf I skip Cut scenes all the time.I use to like them when games first started using them back in ps one and N64 days.the worst game that had Cut scenes was shadowman.your game kind of re-mind me of that game except your game looks way better.

more than what meets the eye

Yeah! They used to be totally great back then...mainly because you could see the characters in a less blocky pixelness

I just wanted to add the screenshots I made for the tutorial here aswell:

Not really, cell shaded games have those thick black outlines around characters and objects.

@ EGG HEAD OF DOOM I had a moment of nostalgia when I saw the XIII screenshot Thank you for inducing a memory.

@ Wolf Stunning work! Truly stunning. Might I suggest releasing this via Desura when you are done, considering that you already use Moddb.

Important

All storyrelevant levels are done and the models are ready to be imported. So this game served its function (to practice)...everything else is not that mandatory to me so I decided to throw in a little game in which you decide important elements and the future of this game.

This is how it works: Copy and paste this form in a code snippet and add an X or # in the selected answer, Please do this with every question. I let this go until monday next week (where I have a dentist appointment of doooom).

So I really hope that a few people participate here and fill out a questionnaire ...otherwise the whole thing looses all its meaning


***************************

A: Should the game have a lot of radio chat and dialogues?

[] Yes! The story and the characters are important
[] No! I would rather like to keep playing without nonsense interruptions
[] Only a few extra besides the necessary! I prefer flowing first person shooter gameplay

B: Reflex Scopes and scifigadgets on guns?

[] Add 'em! I love this stuff and the game is set far in the future anyway
[] No! I prefer ironsights for most weapons
[] Only for sniper rifles and maybe few exceptions
[] No! I don't want you to spend so much time on that crap...get the game done!

C: The teammembers...

[] Die during the game...muhahahahaaa
[] One dies to increase the drama of the story
[] Shouldnt be so important...do what you want
[] the protagonist dies
[] Are just sidecharacters without any real importance...dont waste your time

D: Three levels to go that do not have any real purpose yet should I make them

[] Add action! I wanna shoot stuff and blow things up
[] Add puzzles! I want to see some new stuff in TGC and prefer First person adventures anyway
[] Cut them out! The sooner you release this, the better
[] Bossfight, anyone?

E: The visuals are:

[]Good so far
[]Not yet surreal enough to go with the story...add stuff that makes no sence!!
[]Get rid of the stupid sepia!!

F: Additional Shader effects?

[] Yeah baby! I want my game to look flashy and nonfpsc'ish
[] Only if it enhances the looks without being overdone
[] No, they would hit the framerate and would most likely not run on my system

G: Difficulty:

[]Challenging?
[]Easy as pie... FPSC games aren't that interesting anyway
[]Hardcore! I play shooter games since kindergarten, dude!
[]Balanced

HReadable documents and some audiomessages are...

[]ADD EM ADD EMM!!!
[]Boring
[]okay, but dont waste too much time on that!

I: Violence and gore?

[] No, blood effects only
[] Bring it on!
[] Nothing creepy please!

J: Outro Video?

[]Dont really care about stuff like that
[]A short one please
[]Yeah! You are good at storystuff...do it

K: Some hidden items and goodies?

[]No! this is no kids game!!
[]Makes everything more interesting
[]only a few!

L Extra artworks for loadingimages and HUD graphics?

[]No, your drawing sucks
[]Yes! I think it would give this game a lot more soul
[]Only a few subtile peaces...this is no sketchbook

So! Those are all of em. If you dont know how to do Codesnipptes, just copy the form.

Lets see if this works
