Fuck Source

I've had 2 great ideas for CSS fun maps, but I can't make them because Valve don't want to make correct things.

First, why didn't they put the vehicle/buggy code into CSS to allow custom mappers to have a lot more of possibilities?

2nd, why can't you see yourself on 3rd view?.

I wanted to make mario kart race maps controlling Gman into the buggy, father Grigori into a driveable bath, Gordon Freeman riding a Combine Advisor, etc etc. And I can't because physics mess up the vehicles.

And as a secondary idea, I've had the idea of making LittleBigPlanet cooperation maps, but when I set the point_viewcontrol camera I can't see myself.

Any fix? I think no.

the term "CSS fun maps" is an oxymoron

I've laughed so much on 1.6 Nipper maps, death_run maps, kz_ maps, ba_ maps.

Well... and on normal maps too!

The Source Engine was not built with multiplayer physics in mind, Most source games that have vehicles in multiplayer lag like fuck to the point of being almost unusable some source mods have attempted to rewrite the code though to fix these problems

Well I just don't care about the vehicles, the 3rd person camera is what pisses me off

ask habboi. He was designing a similar Mario-themed map. He might have come up with a sollution

Well, they never designed people to be seen from the outside, so they didnt make a model for the player. Makes sense doesnt it?

well... you can see other players on CSS, why can't you see yourself then?

Because it's optimised as a FIRST PERSON online shooter.

Since when are crappy vehicles and unnecessary player views considered "correct things"?
Commented 13 years ago2008-09-22 06:03:58 UTC Comment #58742
"crappy vehicles" are HL2 vehicles, I don't want them to code new vehciles, just to put HL2 vehicles code on CSS

And views allows lots of customizing possibilities.

So you think limit CSS to shoot and frag is enough? Not a common mapper phylosophy

No, if you want to do things like this do it in the original Source engine game that actually allows you to. CS:S is byproduct, created soley for it's own purpose.

I would do it if people played mods, but nobody does.

And btw, what i need is help, don't tell me it's a stupid idea cause it's not

Spike there was a way to get third person working but it turned out to be buggy anyway.

If anything make this for Gmod not CSS.
Commented 13 years ago2008-09-22 07:57:46 UTC Comment #58744
Hey Habboi, yes I know the way, but it's a shit. Do you remember the videtutorial of Baxayaun? It's very lame, it uses a game_ui to control a prop_dynamic, you can't jump, shoot, look up, look down, etc... :S

Well I think I'll have to give up. It's a shame because you can get 3rd person view on cars without any problem.

People do play mods, just not as much as they used to do back 'n the goldsource days. Some mods have 100 players a night, that's pretty reasonable.

I have something in the works that you'd might enjoy mapping for :o

Is it a flat mod..?
Commented 13 years ago2008-09-22 12:49:03 UTC Comment #58735
.. with bits of life? in it?
Commented 13 years ago2008-09-22 13:06:23 UTC Comment #58727
No, it's a mod that allows you to use the vehicle/buggy in CSS. :o

:D:D:D:D:D:D ChickenFist you're my hero. I'm in love <3

Sarcasm-trick-thing-fail by me, sorry Spike, but it's actually Flat-Life: Source. :(
Commented 13 years ago2008-09-22 15:43:46 UTC Comment #58737
Awesome, I so wanna map for that!
Commented 13 years ago2008-09-22 15:52:01 UTC Comment #58738
Chickenfist: :D you'r alive, and :D New flat-life mod... i just hope it doesnt die like the old 1 :<
Commented 13 years ago2008-09-22 15:55:38 UTC Comment #58729
Hopefully it won't this time. There's strict multiplayer focus and I will host servers. I also won't release anything until it's actually in working condition, and there will be alot more playtesting. :P

('scuse the hijack =))

chicken you're a bastard :(!

Why not Flat-Source so I can make the LittleBigPlanet thing
