School's out for me, and it seems I've a lot of time on my hands for this summer vacation. For example, I've been working on this Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
map for a long time, thinking of ways to make it funny and frustrating during the game play. I came up with the title, "Impossible Grid" due to the many traps I've laid out for you.
They're are many hidden traps in this deceiving map, and each step could be your last. Many traps include:
- A Block door
- A Huge Crusher
- Spawnkilling Protection
Of course, these are the general traps. But I've added a twist into the map.ROLL THE DICE
Unfortunately, it's not shaped as a dice, as of June 18, 2009. Maybe I'll shape it as a dice later. Activate it by using any kind of explosive against it.
The traps of RTD is as follows:
- Deep Fog
- Spawning Explosive Barrels
- Ineffectiveness of Explosive Damage
- WATCH YOUR STEP
- Enabling Spawnkilling
- The Way the World Ends
(NOTE: This is EXTREMELY RARE!!!)
= Very DangerousBUT
there are some good things that come out of this as well.
- Disabling the Crusher
- Regeneration of HP
- Spawnkilling enabled for a team
- Insta-Kill for a team
- Fatal Fall Damage disabled. (This will allow you to get to an easter egg!!!
(That's it! Sorry, I can't accept anymore ideas.)
Some SCREENIES:NOTE: I tested this map with bots as players, so no harsh comments.
Basic Layout of "Impossible Grid":
The RTD (Roll the Dice):
Thunder Rape:For full satisfaction, I recommend you play this in HL2:DM. Any other program would have something missing in the map even if you tried.PLEASE GIVE IDEAS!!!
With enough ideas, I will most likely release the map, but at this state right now, It seems not to have the
it needs for a good release. DOWNLOADS:The Player Bot Used for Testing:
Description: A server-side bot for HL2:DM. Be aware that too many bots can slow down your computer due to the usage of your Central Processing Unit (CPU).
To install this bot, simply click on the Install.exe program, specify the destination, and you're good to go!The Map:
BETA VERSION 1: http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=70901In "The Way The World Ends" , I'll be adding music to the trap. I'm leaving it up to you guys to decide what the music should be. These are the choices:
A. Halo Theme Mjoiner Mix - Halo OST
B. Spiral Madness - Sonic Riders Zero Gravity (I find it strangely amusing)
C. Dead In Ten - Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
D. Airlift (Deploy) - Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareKNOWN BUGS:
- You die due to players spawning near you
- Too many explosions affecting the RTD can produce side effects, such as crashing.
These might be fixed, but I don't know.
