I am a project lead on Tales from the Galactopticon and I will fight you in real life.
Here's some scale comparisons:
The thing on the front left is the bridge. The containers are just really big.
What was that?
This is really cool stuff, props :D
I assumed he meant doors that slide up, but the doors in this picture are regular swinging doors so idk
Maybe Fakefactory will make a cinematic mod of our mod, with giant boobs and creepy eyes on everything.
Modelling an interior for this just so we can have slightly transparent glass would be a huge waste of time and resources, not to mention inefficient ingame, since it's a map prop.
That's why cars in most FPS games don't have transparent windows.
Yeah, that's just the HL2 with a dumb space font. A new HUD is on the to-do list.
I'm the guy who pushed for ironsights, and for two reasons:
1. The vast majority of ironsights have been in real-life military shooters. I thought the juxtaposition of ironsighted aiming with goofy sci-fi weaponry and characters would be unusual and memorable.
2. The hero, John Solomon, isn't supposed to be an unstoppable superhuman killing machine, like Gordon Freeman or Commander Shepard or whatever shooter hero you want to name. He doesn't fire from the hip. He doesn't wear a robosuit or have a personal shield. His firefights are short, small-scale, and brutal, not prolonged Quake matches. Ironsights are just in his character.
I agree, but unless we go with a new skeleton we don't have much choice
SWEEP THE LEG
SWEEP THE LEG
It's the future!
It's not even textured dude
Insecure are we
I love this man, thanks so much. If Galactopticon were a sci-fi novel, this would be the cover.
Actually present-day taxis tend to use the same model as police cruisers (Crown Vic) so it's not entirely lazy. They did it in GTA too.
I just wanted to say "No More Room In Hell" is a great title. Really accentuates the classic zombie vibe. Keep up the great work guys :]
Thanks very much! We'll do our best to live up to your expectations :)
You're not the first person to say that. I've never actually played Syndicate Wars, if anything it was inspired by the cop cars from FutureCop (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xPOZ2F8b2I) but they're a lot blockier.
It was actually going to be a ford, but I decided it looked more like a futuristic impala or something.
Maybe he's into that stuff.
That's pretty creepy dude
The main character was always an alien. Right now we're modding the EP2 engine, although if it's possible to do with minimal hassle we'd like to switch up to the version in Portal 2.
oil leak isn't funny :(
I don't know if you've encountered it but there's a fair few who take issue with the hamfisted gender roles (among other things) in videogames. For example: M.wired.com
Since we're doing a mod, and not beholden to sales figures or publishers, we have the opportunity to subvert peoples expectations. And it's more important that this character immediately register as a bamf than as female anyway.
I kept trying to take screenshots of this guy and he would just walk away as soon as I got a good angle. What a ****.
The mafia characters wear turtlenecks instead of ties to differentiate them from a group of corporate suits the player meets later.
I'm sure it's possible, but it would be a lot of work for a relatively minor payoff. If we get bogged down adding a bunch of minor features just because they seem cool, we'll never be able to get this mod out the door.
Also, John Solomon doesn't know how to hack.
Don't tell him, but that suit doesn't go with anything.
It's hard to tell in the light, but Breen's suit is brown and that one is gray. It also has a pocket hankerchief and white cuffs.
WIP stands for "work in progress."
Well, you know what they say about big feet.
To be clear--the planet is part of a 2D HDR skybox. Unfortunately we can't get it looking quite that good as a map model.
No, it's from Galactopticon.
Hey, you don't need any professional software to bake normal maps. If you have a high-poly and a UV-mapped low-poly, you can do it with xNormal for free:
Vignettes are so boss our mod has one built in.
Haha wow, he DOES look like Alex Jones. I knew he seemed familiar. Good call!
You want them bigger or smaller?
The top thing is a flashlight.
The 2 barrels are there just cause they were in the concept art. But since it's a plasma-based weapon, we can just say it helps distribute the heat for a greater ROF.
It's a lazor submachine gun. It shoots pistol lazors.
You pull the trigger, and lazors come out and kill whatever is in front of it.
I know some stuffs about velociraptors.
