I have an awesome idea for a competition inspired by a book im reading.

it wouldn't be hard at all to organize, and would be fully compatible with both source and gold source.

the idea is the concept of a Leyline and the environment around it, which creatively could be anything in the world. The Leyline itself would be a model, and the mapper could rotate the model any way necessary, but could never change its size or actual shape. Would the surrounding environment be natural? A labratory? science fiction or otherwise? who knows.

Anyone like the idea? I can try and make the models.

You play as a scientist trying to stay alive during the resonance cascade.
No guns
No ammo
No suit
No flashlight
Idea already taken by my mod I'm working on.

I also have little idea what he meant by that.

Also, i hope the doctor in Dimbarks mod isn't a unicorn named Dr. Amazing.

Build a map around a large, long, and curvy flow of energy.

The smallest nutshell I can find for that one.

Explain it more technically. Define this flow of energy.

Posted 7 years ago2012-06-13 13:04:04 UTC Post #307038
uhm... ok let's see... A Leyline is a flow of energy that travels through the universe. In some areas they are visible but mostly hidden and untouchable. The Leyline can be used as an energy source or a means of travelling from one exposed location to another, or possibly to other dimensions.

I can make an example map.

I am getting a hint of what do you mean by that, but its still not fully clear.
And example map would be a cool idea.

Yeah, i guessed it was something like that :)
Following that flow of energy, a map is formed around it, right?

Too bad i dont have source to see the map lol.

Not going to lie , sounds a bit crap as there are quite a few limited things you can do with such a warped and twisted model. A similar idea would be a prefab or such of a rather large crystal ; this is better as it can easily be built around as part of a massive cavern , some mining complex or in the vaults of some scientific centre.

Here's one inspired by Rimrook's thing. Build a research facility (or anything) around a pocket of energy of some sort.... Similar to Dharma in LOST.

Custom map type? Like, a type that hasn't been done? Or one that is chosen for everyone to do? This makes me think of Rim's beer fort.

I agree with Rimrook agreeing with Bruce approving and expanding upon Rimrook's idea. It's definitely something that you would expect from the HL universe.

I agree with Collapse agreeing with Rimrook agreeing with Bruce on this idea. The interesting thing is how you'd explain that mysterious energy.

You apparently are addicted of posting gifs. You are waiting for each and every possible situation where you can express your emotions through these images, and I'm not saying that's bad or not funny, but it's becoming ridiculous, you know?

no not kidding. I don't care for either of them. they play the same role in every movie they are in, and neither are any good at acting. well, maybe pacino is a little better but not much.

Of all the elaborate pitches for competitions in this thread, ninja swoops in with single words and images and has the best ideas yet!

Woah! Wait wait wait. How about a bridge leading to a mountain on an alien planet!?

Oh, nice thread and interesting ideas. Brainstorming is fun and it's important not to give negative feed back during brainstorming, just putting it out there. That is for the after work when you list pros and cons for each idea.

I'm looking forward for a new compo, albeit a small one. Couldn't join the last one :<
Posted 7 years ago2012-06-18 06:32:41 UTC Post #307216
I agree doggy!

A giant ship seems a little far fetched, but perhaps the deck of it could be done. It could definitely be done in a better modeling program though. The reason I mentioned fy map is because it is simple and easy to commit to.

And tunnels are basically caves which are pretty cool and interesting to map.

Bruce, I'm trying to be nice but honest. Quit being a scrotum.

Rim, although the leyline idea seems a little weird I think I could get something cool out of it. I actually could imagine that thing existing in a cave for some reason.

Map a floating sky village.

Any game, any theme, as long as it floats and could be lived in. Any method of flotation accepted, be it technology or magic. :P
