When you create the interiors, can you add attics and hidden areas too?
Larger structures usually is more Tenchu styled and has hidden pathways in lots of places for ninjas to sneak into.

For example, proning and crawling under a house is possible with the japanese house.

Not sure how are you gonna implement a climbing system so ninjas can climb on ledges.

Some of these structures have tatami mats or straw mats on the interior floors, and ninjas can use them for many sneaky purposes, and some of them might have a hole or tunnel to hide in.

Also, Tatami mats can block shurikens and arrows.

For cedar trees, the taller they are, the more branches would stick out... So make 3-4 variations of the cedar trees, each one representing a size group.

#1 = 20ft tree, normal tree branches and width.
#2 = 40ft tree, some branches sticking out in the middle.
#3 = 60ft tree, very narrow at the top, many many branches in the middle and lower base.
#4 = huge tree, lots of branches, the top covers a wide area.

Basically, with 4 variations of the trees, #2-4 can allow ninjas to jump on the branches sticking out.

All you need is to have the character use the correct posture with the correct weapon and add in more animations, and you got yourself a basic sword combat system.

Nvm, its easier to create a "Simple" graphical mode instead while in editor to save resources, and then turn the graphic up to preview.

Dra6o0n Mar 10 2010, 7:09pm replied:

will the animating be even more simpler if you can modify the xml ingame somehow? Like creating a new animation and pasting it over the old one temporarily, as a mod?

The normal way has you going through text, but if you organize the animation list for the default commands, and allow newbies to use it ingame, it will automatically replace the selected animation when using it...

Would this be called Overloading or Overwriting (Programmer terms)?

Example: I made a new animation, I save it so it is a file, now i want to replace a walking animation with it.
Instead of going through the longer route, there can be a simple route of a drop down box for "default" animations--- For example, the animation for walking/running, and a overload button to overload your animation over it so it forces it to use the new animation while this "mod" is in effect.

For things like creating new commands and attaching animations to it, those would be entirely new things and will end up using the old fashion way of editing it.

What can be interesting, is a "Fast" mode button where graphical settings is turned down so you can focus on using the editor without the lag and frame rate being killed.

Testing the game will make the settings go back to normal.

No I meant ALL of those trees being HUGE... There needs to be some more mixture of trees so not all of them are huge, plus they need to add bamboo shoots, they are also tree-like plants.

Those trees overshoots the requirement of 40ft dangit...
It's like 200ft!

It doesn't have to be a RTS style, it can take a bit of the top down shooter style if you want a large scale multiplayer shooter...

So its STALKER from top down with fog of war? You use keyboard to move, and mouse to aim, and sniper rifle allows you to aim better... LOL This might just work!

Makes me wonder if a side scroller can work if its dark and uses flash lights...

I'd like the new textures to be used in CoP because I'm getting a bit tired of the blurry medium-high leveled textures and such on my settings... I'd stuck having to use a lower resolution to play with higher textures...

Dra6o0n Mar 2 2010, 3:50am says:

Porting textures, weather, and basic core system into CoP should be a snap since the engines are practically the same... And probably make the game more optimized too!

For some odd reason, I can only use either Static lighting or Enhanced Dynamic DX10... Using the other ones and restarting Stalker will crash the game... I'm suspecting some kind of problem with dx9 on the windows 7...

The zombies needs to be vulnerable to stumbling and getting back up...

Zombies should react differently to different attacks, like blunt heavy force should knock it over and it can get back up.

Piercing attacks aren't effective to stun or knock them down and that includes bullets...

So if they are tough enough, a shotgun could "knock" them off their feet but still alive because you didn't blow their brains out...

What about tiles? In Edo Japan, the roads inside these large places consists of rocks rather than dirt road... And having these rocky areas in alleyways and such as pathway allows for footsteps to be heard better.

To explain this post, I meant that there are game breaking functions where your able to leap far distances and cut the work needed if you know how to abuse the controls... In multiplayer, if all they do is summon on you, all you need to do is know how to get around and gather items and free your allies. -_-

If they go professional and made it half RE5 and Intense Action, they could pull it off if they balance the animation and movements, etc.

They basically have to deal with a huge expectation from people, not in the modding community anymore, but with the worldwide community...

Err, is that a joke?
A professional release would include a ton of rework, like not letting the player move around the map 3x as fast using the run jump ability over and over again... A professional release would include better, smoother, fluid animation that actually connects to make the game feel more professional.

To go professional means you must strive over a certain line of expertise in your profession.

Well this is surprising for a mod that didn't have a super great animation, but probably pitched in the other elements to balance that out...

Did anyone know that you can repeatingly jump to move around faster than running?

The real ambiance would be set up throughout the environment then, because you can't have one track with sounds in a area that might not make sense, like electrical sounds when there's nothing but pipes, glass, and metal in the area...

You'd wanna create many different generic ambiances for different areas, and have them activate at random when a player comes near, to sync with a main ambiance.

For HL2 Coop mods a bit like this, try Obsidian Conflict. Too bad that one isn't updated much, but is still a decent mod if it has enough content to last a few months...

A swamp would be neat, having tricky muddy swamp waters to slow you down.

Possibly something like quick sand, but in reality quick sand doesn't really exist, you can get out of a "quicksand" pretty fast in real life.
