  • [QUOTE=Lord Ned]Blah, I'll work on a sawn off for you guys, I just need models. Like I can model, just not texture, so I'm kinda up for the job.[/QUOTE] We don't need another scripter. Also I believe our pistol is fine.

  • Blah, blah. I said that wrong and you read it WAY wrong. I know 0 lua. I am willing to be a modeler, I just need the hands from the Grenade model.

  • Panzer: Did you create psw_islandbattle? I've opened it up and started editing it, so just thought I'd ask (I'm adding rowboats; sorta). And no need to apologize!

  • Subenji, I never knew that! Funny mention there. Panzer & anyone who knows: Who created islandbattle? Termy: There's barely any possibility of reading that as a request to script something. Which makes it so much funnier :D Lord Ned: The hands from the grenade model are based off the ones from the sabre, but they're blocky. for some reason. ****I'm working on running a test of islandbattle, with rowboats!

  • Music has been considered, but there comes a point where the music gets bland. Unless you have a way to prevent that, play your own music! :P

  • Aw hell yea, this is what I'm talking about! Great Gmod 9 mods live again! Gold star and a happy downloader here!

  • I cannot get enough of this gamemode on Gmod 10. It is finally a good gamemode that you can jump right into the battle, no need for long load times or tedious waiting for the action to occur. This makes me think that this is a good mod that the typical "Mingebag" can go to and not be able to fuck things up! (Besides from Tk'ing and driving the boat like an imbisil, but that can be fixed quickly. Great concept and execution of this mod and I can't wait for every update. :D

  • Thanks Xion! And that was my first time using Sony Vegas, too :D Recon, glad to hear you're happy with it. It's taken a lot of work, by me, Termy, EmpV, youaremea, and various other mappers/modelers/graphic designers to get this up and running so fast since the gm9 source release! Oh, officially I'm starting a suggestion box. Simply a text field and the ability to link up to 5 external sources, which is then brought up to the attention of various devs. (Goes off to make php page for it)
  • I can do some modeling for you guys. Also, about the music, can you control that !radio function on the server? Could you just put a bunch of pirate music playing on that?
  • Is it possible for 4 ships to be one one map? Like, 1v1 map divider here 1v1 When 2 ships have been sunk/disabled, the divider could be raised/removed and then the 2 remaining ships could have a final battle. Just a random thought I had.

  • Sorry but that canyon map is a bit senseless. How do the ships get there? And apart from that it is just some displacements and a water brush.

  • The masts of the ships are very annoying, when you shoot at it with a cannon when it's down, it will launch itself.
  • Is there any servers up with it? [b]Edit:[/b] Nevermind, I found some, but they're empty :(

  • [QUOTE=Termy58]The worst part is I got detention for not standing during the pledge of allegiance with 5 other people (apparently they think we want death to America or something)[/QUOTE] It's illegal for them to punish you for that. I NEVER stand during the pledge, because I'm dissatisfied with the way America is going. Present to them the Bill of Rights and tell them that they're full of it. I don't think you could [i]sue[/i] them for that, but you can either get them to back off or get them some [i]really[/i] bad publicity.
  • [QUOTE=Primus8]Try copying/cloning one ship in hammer See if your computer can handle it, mine ended up crashing on my attempt at that[/QUOTE] I would if I knew how to use Hammer.

  • [QUOTE=Killuah]Sorry but that canyon map is a bit senseless. How do the ships get there? And apart from that it is just some displacements and a water brush.[/QUOTE] SO TRUE... I wonder that myself... how did the damn pirates get down there! Oh well they did and that's all that is importent... Unless you have historical records telling why they would do such a silly thing. But either way you gota admit this gamemode is far less fun on generic water map. [b]Edit:[/b] I'm not saying that makeing 4 ships is impossible in hammer... but it would screw up compile probably. I'm saying that much physics would DEFINANTLY kill the average server and most likely stagger or kill a very powerfull server.

  • The use of 4 of the current ships is Not possible in hammer. It's just too many entities. Maybe if the ships were not breakable or made with models it would be possible, but what fun would that be? :/

I am trying to learn how to make bump map textures and this is what I got. :( [URL=http://img522.imageshack.us/my.php?image=pwcanyonwarsbeta60002wf7.jpg][IMG]http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/2318/pwcanyonwarsbeta60002wf7.th.jpg[/IMG][/URL] They turn the entire canyon white unless you get close to the texture... then it looks normal... WHAT THE HELL?
  • Avatar of Metroid48
  • No clue. Never used bump map textures. Looks very strange. Cheat: Er...that's fun though! You can toss masts at the other ships in epic fashion! Killuah: So it's completely realistic that we're all identical-looking people, fighting each other for no reason, who magically reappear when we die and have near-infinite ammo, with water that burns us, ships that can slide out from under our feet, trapped in a cube that looks like the sky? Source isn't for realism, especially not for pirates. And I like it that way :D simkas: Empty? They usually have 7+ people. Omni: AGREED! Even though I don't even live in the US!
