With the end of TWMV upon us, I thought I'd give one last opportunity to get some maps flowing. So right here, right now, I'm calling for a little map jam!

The only requirements is that the map features func_vehicles prominently in some way (and, by extension, the map must be for Counter-Strike) (or Sven, apparently that has a func_vehicle too), and that ideally it be in the vault by 19th of December, 8am AEST 2nd of January, 8am AEST for a follow up stream.

Through the course of the vault, we've seen func_vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Cars, vans, helicopters, waterskis, crabs, mario karts, spaceships! Anything can be a vehicle if you try hard enough! I don't care how good the maps are, I just wanna see func_vehicles!

Apparently Sven Co-op has func_vehicle too, can that be allowed?

"is Cs 1.6 expert fgd the right choice?"
For J.A.C.K. users, I believe Matias-TM's FGD will be a good pick, but CS 1.6 Expert FGD should do just fine otherwise.

I grabbed the Jack one, seems to be fine so far.

Funny how this semi-compo coincides with 7dfps: http://7dayfps.com/about/

I really want to do more with this, I did not spend much time on it. But I might not find the time to improve it

TBH I usually never participate in map compos, map jams nor anything, but given the vehicular requirements, I'm thinking about participating in this one.
And I got a crazy idea. :walter:

That looks really interesting! How do you achieve that lighting?
Posted 1 year ago2020-12-14 09:26:05 UTC Post #345060
It's the effects keyvalue. In this case, I think I set it to 4 or 8, so it emits a dynamic light at the entity's origin.

Posted 1 year ago2020-12-15 00:50:51 UTC Post #345063
Huh, that's interesting! It looks like these are the available effects - different kinds of dynamic lights (including a more subtle one that doesn't flicker), the yellow 'monster-stuck-in-wall' particle effect, a no-draw setting and a few other things. So if anyone wants to make a yellow-particle 'vehicle'...

Protip: you can create convincing rockets by adding effects 64

Here's an idea for others, if you're looking for ideas: a rocket vehicle with the glow sprite following it

I could've worked more on it, and the map limitations allow me to add vertically 2x more content than that, buuut I gotta study for tests and work on my engine, so this will do. xD

Did I miss something? How are you getting a sprite to follow a vehicle in vanilla CS? Also these effects keyvalues are completely new to me as well!

3 days left!

(I won't stop anyone uploading more after that, I just won't look at them on-stream.)

@Archie
The effects keyvalue basically applies a builtin engine effect for entities. It's how I attached a dynamic light to the quadbike and made a glow sprite shine on a func_train rocket. Captain P posted a link up there so you can see what each value does.

But how do you set its position to be the thrust end of the rocket?
Posted 1 year ago2020-12-16 20:17:30 UTC Post #345073
With an origin brush. Otherwise the effect would spawn at 0,0,0

Posted 1 year ago2020-12-16 22:33:23 UTC Post #345074
Ah so it wouldn't work on anything that needs to rotate around its own origin brush.

That's correct, unfortunately. :death:

Silly idea I can't test right now, but can you set effects on the func_vehiclecontrols?
Posted 1 year ago2020-12-17 08:41:16 UTC Post #345080
I don't think so. If func_vehiclecontrols works the same as traincontrols (just for vehicles), then it gets removed from the map right after spawning. Vehicle & train controls work by setting their bounding boxes to where the control brushes are, and then the func_xyzcontrols entity gets deleted.

Had to go with generic HL rockets, as usual my brain was bigger than my time to create what I originally conceived.

There's been enough requests (combined with the fact the deadline was arbitrary anyway) that i'm gonna say y'all can have another 2 weeks to keep func_vehicling. (I would have said 1 week, but i won't be around next weekend anyway.)

New Deadline: 2nd of January, 8am AEST

Mainly the deadline. But also the time I'll have to work on this. Thank you.

Thanks! I might just have time to finish something now. It's another space-themed map (someone's gotta use Admer456's effects) but I think it's different enough from Unq's that that's ok:

Thanks Archie. I began a new map for the jam, should have a beta done by then. Screens soon.
