  • I love the Waterfalls map! It's just like: "Oh crap..." when you look over the edge and the expression is like --> :uhoh:

  • It's really fun to have a ship going up and a ship going down the falls at the same time.

  • Are you guys aware that what most likely is causing the FPS drainage, is all those collisions from the ships??? You should make it so that the ships are no-collided with the rest of the same ship. (this is what happened on my friend's server) Idk what else is wrong with the sliding. Maybe the sliding was just part of the FPS drainage???

  • The sliding is something with the Source engine, because it was never made to handle someone standing on a moving prop.

  • [QUOTE=The Salmon]I love the Waterfalls map! It's just like: "Oh crap..." when you look over the edge and the expression is like --> :uhoh:[/QUOTE] I love that map! :D I just wish the fall wasn't so jerky and confusing to new players. You have to expect to be flung into the air, and position yourself to land near the steering wheel. It's just such an awkward fall - would be sweet if you could actually brace yourself by being able to hold onto something. I love the gamemode too - I keep hoping there is hope for an update or a way for some of the obvious engine limitations to be fixed or worked around - e.g. players falling out of the ship or barely being able to get out from inside the ship. There is so much potential here! Suggestion to whomever: would be nice if the ship could keep accelerating for those moments where it's just a crime not to ram that defenseless ship.

  • Will you upload a copy of the Garry's mod 9 version for me please? Some of my friends saw this but they don't own Garry's Mod 10...

  • I played this with my friends for about a whole month straight. It was fun. Then, it just stopped happening..

  • This gamemode died out pretty fast but it was really popular in beta and just release stages, and a little when 1.5 came out. I remember seeing 6 servers full, and having official test server full for 3 days straight 24/7

  • Probarbly becauase of the lag this game mode can cause. Was reading the chat logs on my PSW server. This person said: "I told you they fixed the gamemode but they did not fix the lag."
  • Avatar of Pie_Lord
  • If by lag you mean FPS drop, then it's all the collisions that the ship is doing with itself. To fix this, you just need to have all the pieces of the ship that are close enough to eachother no-collide.

  • So... where do you put the V.M.F? (The only reason I put the periods was to keep it from being read as misspelled)
