  • Oh hell yeah, I saw some of those map screenshots in a mapping mega-thread, looks amazing I really hope this works out! Good luck sir.

  • This is like your 5th MMORPG attempt in garrysmod now, cruma. I hope this one won't end up like the others. And that map is real nice, I like the grass.
  • Avatar of Averice
  • The map looks amazing, and I like the idea of your particle editor to make development easier. Looks good guys I'll be watching this one.

  • Is it possible you release your particle editor seperate to the public? A lot of people including myself would find it extremely useful.

  • [RELEASE] [B]Aura Update 001:[/B] [u]Media:[/u] The past few days our coder, Bekka, has been working on some updates and managed to complete the first legitimate version of our custom particle editor: [img_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/cgH3D.png[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/hV9uZ.png[/img_thumb] A developmental video that will showcase how it works and all of its features is to be released soon. Early progress has also begun on one of our planned dungeon hunting zones: [img_thumb]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/594697633897652097/ECC726FDF0BE7D71077CAE999B9E1D20AE684313/[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/594697633897651240/E7F70A9C15C540145AB1EA2F18943A603A2DD374/[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/594697633897652820/5B1F9354A41FB3BECBF540E573D1CC1D0B2F0002/[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/595823984022123516/8CA8AEFC2F02E8E217820A34E830E13D861EFA0A/[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/595823984022123976/6143B2989AD2F154002D4ADFD950E9B8B5D8FE88/[/img_thumb] [u]Q & A:[/u] [QUOTE=darren.splash;32447446] Did you teleport to a diffrent location for the dungeon? [/QUOTE] Indeed, dungeon and cave hunting zones are detached from the mainland and reside elsewhere in the deep, black void of the Hammer Editor. [QUOTE=LauScript;32459009] Is it possible you release your particle editor seperate to the public? A lot of people including myself would find it extremely useful. [/QUOTE] Our main concern is to keep our focus on Aura and to complete it, so at this time there are no plans to release any of our work for public use. Perhaps sometime after initial release, we will discuss plans to create a public version of our editor. Thanks to all of the others who responded with words of praise. Be sure to check up on this thread for future updates and feel free to ask any questions that you would like to have answered. [/RELEASE]

  • That looks awesome, I would suggest making more than one island tho, so for instance when you get so far into the game there should be an option for the next tier up in caves and island to go to.
  • Avatar of LauScript
  • A lot of these MMO coders have really good ideas, but they should try making them outside of Garry's Mod, that way they can make real mmos :). just saying, but this looks really cool.
  • Avatar of LauScript
  • Btw I highly highly recommend you use cross-server maps to give it a lot of immersion, and performance too i suppose
  • Thank god you said multiplayer! I thought this would be a single player RPG! Serious time now, apart from the "MORPG" that annoys me slightly it looks good.
