jax, you can't make it CS. You just can't if u want to make a decent mod. You have to use Half-Life because of the source code. You can't just willy-nilly say, "ok, CS, be mario now", becuase it's allready compiled. when you make a map, you can't open a bsp and edit it like that, can you? and besides, CS isn't even in the last bit practical for what we are doing. we're making mario, and i think it should be an sp with grunts turned into monsters. oh, and here are some other things to think about:
-should be based on mario64, because we have those wads already, and it was the best 3d version of mario yet (sunshine was gay).
-should be played in third person, like observer's in CS onthe chase camera
-maybe armor should be turned into star-power, to use things like wing caps, and fire flowers, or maybe those should have their own ammo and armor should be like a count-down timer for invicibility with a power-star
-limited weapons. i never saw mario with an m4 or ak. instead be able to select between flowers or wing caps, etc. and the crowbar will be his punches and kicks
-we should at least give him a plunger or a wrench. he is a plumber for christ's sake!
-mp should just be deathmatch (or teams) where you can play as different characters (even the enemies, like koopas).
-we have to have a yoshi
