Simple? Meh, when we play, it's always a waste of time to put that word in
It looks like a normal background, he probadly just used background models (such as forests) to make it look more 3D.

Well, I started on one, but looking through these screenshots now it doesn't look so good, also it was very similar to Wytas' idea .
So I scrapped that one now and I'm started on a new one now, hopefully no one has taken this idea.

Default Re: Contest : A Simple Terrain Area!

Due to some confusion, I am declaring this:

Terrain != Caves. Even though other sites claim to be something like caves (like in Wiktionary), my dictionary says the definition is:

Code:
A particular type of land
So, terrains are not caves.

Also, UT asked me whether "terrain" like this is allowed:
http://www.totaltravel.com.au/guide/...anyon-cave.jpg

Well, the flat land is considered a terrain (not the sides).

Oh and don't curse my dictionary if you did make a cave.

We must be allowed to make cliffs or I'll withdraw from this contest I haven't made any caves so far, but I'll start adding interior areas soon.

No, I think he is trying to say that caves are not terrain, but cliffs are allowed, as long as they are on terrain (flatish/hilly ground outside?).

The confusion ensued after I asked TwL if my map (which primarily consists of caves) was considered as terrain. Hopefully with some modifications my map can still be classed as terrain, as he didn't specify in the beggining, if we could have more than one terrain in the area (which is basically one 'terrain' per cave for me...).

Terrains are NOT caves!

Cliffs are allowed, in fact they don't really consider part of the terrain.

Man looks like I should not have even posted that message.

EDIT : And you don't need to add caves GeForceNoob.

Is it ok if we do small caves?
Like small holes in hills and rocks for things like enemy spawning?

You CAN do caves, but the cave IS NOT a terrain, so you cannot use it as a terrain for this contest.

Is this contest all about the terrain now or will you judge the gameplay too?

No, you MUST put terrain. I am saying that you cannot replace terrain as caves.

Okay? I hope it is clear... :/

Yes, gameplay and everything else, as I said, you can add anything you want (meaning gameplay, etc...). The judging type will almost be the same (check the previous contest. )

Default Re: Contest : A Simple Terrain Area!

Gaah! I kinda lost my inspiration during the weekend (due to RL stuff and such), but I'll try to finish it ASAP now. Just gotta add a few more areas, the final battle and maybe two more secrets. 70% done now, if I hurry I'll be able to release it on the specified release date. But I might miss beta-testing so you judges should report any bugs you find to me so that I can fix them from the SeriousZone version (I'm planning to release this map to the public too).

It's amazing what kind of a level you can build from such a small area. 200x200x200 is horribly small for my tastes, but once I started adding things there and there, it grew a lot bigger than I thought Although I did have to hide the interior areas inside house models

Damn, I just added some new enemies in but they're harmless until you stand still, then they kill you in one hit (Very poor possibility of that happening)

Pic of my finished terrain. I haven't added enemy encounters yet

http://img50.imageshack.us/img50/231/dscf1006ev0.jpg



but I can't for the life of me get this little beetle enemy working. He'll either go backwards, strafe around me or get flipped over by terrain or another beetle, making him stand on his end (front or back) or onto his back, unable to get up and easily picked off. I use the Rhino behaviour and the beetle's own param. I have to use him as a hovercraft as that's the only thing I can make work properly (So if you get close, you can 'ride' them)

What is the exact time when the map needs to be finished? Can I like, post the map at 3 PM (GMT) tomorrow for judging?
