I think is impossible not having fun, to make a map takes lots the time and I don't believe anyone in here made a map obligated!
Problem is Shambler they'll finish it and in the release comments people will say 'was a bit weird there was no snowfall though' or 'yeah, shame you didn't have the whole blizzard thing going on, that would have been awesome'.
That's If You Do A Crap Job Of It.
I won't. If a map is cool and fun and wintery then it's cool and fun. I still enjoy Id style if it's made well and plays well.
.. needs rules:
2/ white fog
3/ Alternatively X-mas tree
Other options are possible
1/ Santa Klaus (we need a model for that)
3/ Flying chariot (possibly pulled by reindeers and driven by Santa Klaus, and for sure full of gifts)
4/ Gifts under the Xmas tree (XMas eggs are accepted)... if possible all with my name on :P
Is that enough in term of rules ??
Does it satisfy everybody ??
Isn't it too restrictive ?
A better lternative is to build a map without a predefined theme... Maya, Space, base, Medieval, whatever, but a map ! And persoannly I don't care whether there will be snow or whatever... the gift is THE map !
My 2 cents...
everyone can make any kind of map at anytime. no one is forced to map. a theme can be motivating. I like winter settings. your "other options" sound dumb.
Just put a white beard skin on the ogre and have done with it.
I like the idea of "winter" but that could be interpreted in lots of different ways it doesn't have to mean snowdrifts/snow effects.
mayan winter even sounds interesting. might still be hot out there though.
that said, unforgiven had some snow effects in unf2, pretty subtle but it was mod-side, I'm sure PM would be happy to provide the code for that.
I might take part in this and make a SMALL map for once.
thx for volunteering to do progs necros. I request quoth, drake, nehahra, hexen 2, quake 2, RMQ and heretic 2 in one =)
just kidding. what does everything think of starting with the altar of storms progs? it would be fun having those ice golems in there.
not that it wasn't a good map (layout was great) but more variaton (not just in textures but designs) was needed. Check out Rogue's temple maps "Tempus Fugit" and "Curse of Osiris" to see what I mean... those guys had ONLY rogue textures (heh), but each area in those maps is distinct from the last.
...don't tell me you considered post #40 as serious...
was more thinking of 33
MR. Cocoa-Cola is evil. The true tradition of winter is desolation. But then, the true tradition of Q1SP is the sense of desloation, it's just that in the nameless dungeons, wherever they might be or inside whatever planet they may be and however deep - it was obvious that it was a desolate scenario since you never thought, in the necropolis, whether it was snowing outside.
It�s just a mather of tastes tronyn forget!
I love doing it, and I like it,that what it mathers :)
Trinca And JPL Are Noobs And I'm Going To Prove It!
You're All Wrong
winter is about christmas sweaters, and you better believe in my map all the shamblers will be wearing them.
Don't be mean....
@#46 I So Want To Have A Beer With Tronyn One Day...
...and yes I've been mucking around with DKT snow textures for the last two nights.
The Elves Are At Work...
Nice nice !!!
Woot, but what about your city map?
Not To Worry
That project has grown a couple of legs, but it's not dead. This will be much smaller and acheivable in the time frame. I might even have it finished in time to let someone else do the gameplay...
