View Full Version : Turricans map - avatars wad

28-10-2001, 03:40 AM
Hello. This is Turrican.
I am making a map for SC due to all the spare time i have.
I have no idea what to call it. It is going to use my Avatar texture file (http://www.svencoop.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1603) so i can make a hidden gallery of avatars for some reason. It is also going to use a custom sky and i may wait till 2.0 so i can use custom reskins also.
Here are some screenies!

Screeny number one (http://www.svencoop.com/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=19835)

Btw- in the attachment screenshot the sniper rifle is not the Nomad, it is a 357 replacement i found on the web.

If you would like your avatar to be in my map tell me on the Avatar texture file (http://www.svencoop.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1603) thread.

One funny feature is a Dynamite type thing that has a delay of two seconds, so when some idiot goes up to it and says "why didnt it blow?" it explodes in their face.

The good thing about this map is that all monsters come from monstermakers so the thing should run (marginally) faster.
Little update: Upgraded the Avatar gallery with 4 more avatars; BlackMage, Bob-o, DrunkMonkey and Nate.

Screeny one (http://www.svencoop.com/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=19835)
Screeny two (http://www.svencoop.com/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=19836)
Screeny three (http://www.svencoop.com/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=19889)
Screeny four (http://www.svencoop.com/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=19892)

If these images take a while to load then get a decent connection.

28-10-2001, 10:48 AM
Sorry, i am still making it.

28-10-2001, 04:22 PM

'Nuff said.

Can i test it? PLEASE!!!!!!

28-10-2001, 05:14 PM
You want to test four rooms and two corridors?

28-10-2001, 05:22 PM
You said its not done...right?


28-10-2001, 05:28 PM
Damn it forgot about that.
Well actually i checked the forum rules but stupidly that was after posting but i didnt want to delete it because i did so much.

28-10-2001, 10:25 PM
ehhehe pretty good turrican, ur a better mapper than i thought, nice idea of putting in all avatrs,

u want my sven coop logo i made?

29-10-2001, 02:17 AM
Actually the avatars was BBs idea. I made the wad for him but i thought - i might as well use it.

29-10-2001, 11:01 AM
Many thanks to BB on his remixed avatars. He edited all the pics to have cool borders and to have a bigger texture so they look more detailed.

Wow, nice(-: When's it released?

29-10-2001, 12:09 PM
I dunno... Could be two weeks. Thats if i find time between my GCSEs and sleep.
(Thats what i get for saying "due to all my spare time" in the first post)
If you have any ideas though that you have always wanted in a map tell me. I have completely ran out of ideas. :rolleyes:

I might wait till 2.0 so i can take advantage of the new features too.

A mini garg runnin' around :D, Squeeking: Where's my mommy?. And the the mommy comes (big gargantua)and kill the entire svenco-op team. THAT would be fun :)

29-10-2001, 12:21 PM
I was thinking more HWgrunt but i might include a baby garg too. Im thinking of making it go to another planet like sc_spaceb1.

29-10-2001, 12:23 PM
Maybe it'll think we're its parents, and give us a warm hug :)

29-10-2001, 12:24 PM
A warm handflamey type hug?
Hmm never thought of that... Friendly baby gargs...

Rune "Viking"
29-10-2001, 12:30 PM
So you're gonna include a baby garg? :)

29-10-2001, 12:35 PM
Sure! Might as well. This would involve having to wait until 2.0 to get the map though...

Rune "Viking"
29-10-2001, 12:43 PM
I'm sure Sven is releasing it soon :) .Maybe he'll release it before you map is finished, if he's not releasing the 2.0 fgd before 2.0 game, so you can use it or sumething?

29-10-2001, 12:51 PM
Well i could complete the map and then wait for 2.0 and add the new entities. If i finish it before 2.0 i might just realease version 1 of it or something.

29-10-2001, 01:45 PM
make a bunch of DEATH TRAPS like ummmmm pressing a button and it explodes and kills you, orrrrrrrrr ummmmmmmmm wlaking into a room it goes dark and assains apear but u can`t see them an them everyobe theri dies

29-10-2001, 01:49 PM
Hmm good idea...
I think i might put some assassins in as an end boss because they are so damn hard (to kill).
Keep the ideas coming though!
I just proved that point about the assassins by making a long corridor with 3 assassins down it and with only a shotgun with which to kill them. Harder than Nihilanth!

29-10-2001, 06:37 PM
Hey Turrican I was kidding about that crying thing. I would like to be in there though.

30-10-2001, 12:14 PM
Sorry but all the room on the walls are full up. I will make a second wad though!
Thanks to Burnout64s great idea of a name to each picture i have added a button below every avatar and a game_text name and description of every member.

30-10-2001, 12:19 PM
What a stupid thing to take a picture of... a button... you didnt really need to see this but... well anyway here you can see a button which has been pressed to reveal Cooleyo's name and custom status.

I have found a fantastic sky for my map at the Wadfather (http://www.planethalflife.com/wadfather/).
It is called Majestic by Mighty Pete.
I am going to use that for the sky on the planet.

I am no longer working on the avatar room as it is supposed to be a map with a hidden gallery, not a gallery with a map.

31-10-2001, 05:14 PM
Wasn't that the one featured on PHL as Wadfather's 500th sky recently? Oh yeah nice looking map so far.

P.S. what did you put for my game_text thingy?

31-10-2001, 05:32 PM
Yes it was featured as the 350th to be exact. And i liked it enough to include it in my map. I needed one that looked cool but looked like an Earth type planet too.

And as your button i had to just put "irregular". If you want something else just ask.

03-11-2001, 09:56 AM
i`am a monkey which is drunk, how u gonna get my avatr, it`s a gif

03-11-2001, 10:01 AM
I used the power of posotive thinking and it appeared as a jpg. Magic. Unfortunately i didnt have enough room in the avatar gallery so you arent there. But your avatar is in the Wad!

Hey, Bee tried that once.
I got his rmf file and editted his lounge map for him.

You didn't have to push a button to see text, only looking at the avatar will do it! :)

This map is gone and dead!

03-01-2002, 03:35 PM
