hey, i have an idea, how about we all put forth a tower created by all of us, each person could have his or her floor, and it would be cool if someone put some cinimatics in there, and we could have neighboring buildings (but they would be like the sets on movies) and maybe cars going down the streets using func_train, we could have loads of stuff, and it allows anyone to do it, we all could make the lobby, and the elevator's buttons could have our names on them so you could just hit the "use" key on the persons name to go to their custom floor.

the great thing about this is that it is for everyone, and noone can critisize anybody elses.

we would have to have size limits though, but overall it would be a great team effort, we could put a big "TWHL" at the top of the building, and everybody could ask the more experienced mappers to help w/ their problems

so, what do ya'll think? :D

oh, who founded this site, because we could put that persons name on a big shiny plack hanging on the wall, right next to mine, just kidding. :P

this is gonna be the third i guess, lol

well, unless they are as independent and for every1 as my idea i think i should start this thing, oh, by the way, monkeys are cool,

if anyone is interested then they should email me a map at "frankyg@I-55.com

the demensions for your floor need to be a sqare "2" of the bigest units wide and "1" of the bigest units high

and i dont care if anyone is a newb or a total wiz at this, the point of it is to learn and do teamwork, and to make some kinda super skyscraper :D

i think this is a good idea, im in after i did some of my ohter work, if you let me do the lobby......
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-06 13:56:41 UTC Post #21417
There'll be room for just 16 floors with that height of the floor, but I don't think this will be a problem. Use my new elevator system and you can have mush more aranged next to each other. :D

well, i'm no expert, but i wanted to do the lobby too, we could both do it, or have sep. entrances

but i have a lobby format already made, i guess i could email it?

or whatever
:D

you looked at my awsome lobby map:P
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-06 14:56:32 UTC Post #21425
You mean your going to make a map like the_towers? (see my map, the_towers)

Oh never mind. I thought you were talking about a fantasy map.

oh, i love your lobby, it looks like if the grid level off perfect dark had a baby w/ the government tower from the matrix, sorry for the wording, but i thought that this map would have a sofisticated look to it, like a tower for a major corporation, w/ nice shiny stuff(which i know you can do for the lobby, but just the lobby) and cubicles on sum floors, then our own wacked out floors

and um, world craft dude, you totally lost me man, i'm confuzed
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-06 15:19:44 UTC Post #21435
well, i cna work on it after i have finishd the project. dont know when that is but i sned andy the story of my part wiht a plan made in adobe photoshop

ok, me and a friend are possible gonna make a expansion map pak for half life, here a hint. what is roswell famous for, and where is another close by(but in bordering state) conspirical area, hmm

wouldn't it be natual that they all might be connected to the foregrounds of black mesa(i don't know what it was called)by a series of underground railroads

hmmm, maybe you would be freeman, going back in Time, hmm.

i'm gonna be gone for the rest of the week so yall be thinkin up some killer ideas
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-06 15:38:59 UTC Post #21440
well, rosswell is well know because of its first aline landing, but it is very good possible it was a weather balloon.
and the area nearby...is area 51, groom lake base ore, i cnat come up wiht the icao code but when i found it i tell you.
iffcialy the base doenst excistso you should be allowd to take sattalite pictures form from outer space.
and they do, the runway has been extend to 5 kilometers
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-06 16:01:42 UTC Post #21449
Hmmmmm . . . I'm interested in both the tower and the railroad/subway level. I have a suggestion for the railroad thing: Instead of making a track that extends miles and miles, you could just go a short distance and then reach a trigger_changelevel. When the next level loads, it could display something like "Three hours later" and you're at the next stop. That way, you could concentrate more on the actual levels. shrugs
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-06 17:01:35 UTC Post #21461
good idea dude, and the whole level wouldn't be just about being on a railroad, it would start off probably at black mesa,i'm still thinking about my idea of the character, maybe a marine instead, yeah, i can see it now, your one of the marines in the chopper when it's hit, you fall out into a small sand dune while you watch the osprey crash in front of you, you turn around and run behind a boulder while aliens are poping up around you,after the area is secured an alien comes out and shoots an explosive barrel by the marines and kills them, you have the option to pick up a gun near you , then you have to get inside a small building/thing, it would be like on of those storm cellar doors, like on home alone(LOL) or something, and it would lead you into the top of a underground railroad system,and from there on out, i'll have to think :P
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-06 17:03:45 UTC Post #21464
ooh ooh! an Alien weopon in experimentation in the dark depths of Area 51, hmmm, maybe alien corpses floating in tanks, like on the movie "independence day" lol.

and a hundred spacebucks to anyone who can name the character that is my sig pic! (but not you, blueblade) :badass:

yes, a good idea, but there are a lot like it right now, and in progress. since I am a part of pretty much all of them, why not this one, if you are willing to do all the work that is ;) .

Why not have each floor be a different level?

we could all give you our floors, and you could could put them together to create it.

Strange I have never seen you here before?

oh, and you could keep uploadign it whenever you get a new floor.

If this is MP, and I don't know if it is because I didn't read all that writing that appeared here over a day, I'm out.

Hey, what is your e-mail? What you have placed in you member info is not a real one.

wow, this forum has been replied to a lot, but look at my "I got an Idea" forum (With a similer idea by the way) and how many people have replied to it, lol.
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-07 09:13:36 UTC Post #21569
yup, is it still at work
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-10 19:05:55 UTC Post #22080
hey yall, i'm back, did you miss me? well, i guess i'll have to start my level on the tower, oh, by the way, that is a cool sig pick peppy,lol
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-11 11:03:19 UTC Post #22120
Make each floor a separate map. That way, we won't get lag or anything. We all design our own floors, and then link all the maps with transitions. When I get my comp fixed, I'll probably design myself a heavily guarded office with traps and defence guns etc. everywhere.
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-11 13:54:32 UTC Post #22153
lol, whatever, but i guess we could all have our own floor per level, it's just that the elevator would look weird loading a level constantly, maybe we could make a level totally devoted to the elevator shaft :)
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-25 00:21:11 UTC Post #23835
has this been forgoten? - screw the lag and make it easy ... if people are still doing this I would really like to join it
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-26 10:57:46 UTC Post #24067
So the idea is that everyone that joins creates a floor, in wich he shows off his mapping skills? Everyone gets his personal floor, so others can see how good/bad he is and what he likes/dislikes... Sortof a showcase?

Funny idea indeed...

collaborative map projects dont work unless you single out a bunch of mappers you KNOW are reliable and likely to finish AND KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ENTITY AND A BRUSH ENTITY
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-27 16:06:59 UTC Post #24262
That's a good statement...

I know from experience...

:o I know I know what A Brush Entity is! I just forget what the other one is!

Hey guys! I decided to start the map project off for you all!
You can download the map and source here, have fun now!

(with apologies to anyone who is alive)

hey, dude, i'm kinda not interested in this so jobabob is top gun now, if anyone wants to join just tell him

I wonder if anyones actually played the map yet
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-29 15:04:21 UTC Post #24565
lol I actually downloaded it and I have to say wtf is that :P lol? I wouldn't call that a start Mr. Im In Charge Of The 911 attacks!
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-29 15:28:13 UTC Post #24567
OK, lets decide who is going to lead this, cause I really want to do it. Vassy would you still do those transitions for the each floor because that would be the best way to go about this. First thing we do is put a date on when the maps have to be in, everyone sends them to you, and if you still would do it, make the link ups.
My idea for getting to each level is an elevator, somehow we could make it not actually move but just open and close its doors at each level? Im just putting out ideas common people :D

I wonder if anyone has noticed the point of why I released it though (and the accompanying statement of hatred on my main site)
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-29 21:28:13 UTC Post #24610
(That was the news post on Jobabob's page) FOR all too know, and BECAUSE I confused the simple minded - I AM ANONYAMOUS - just forget that, sorry for changing accounts yet again. Seventh please delete those accounts if you have that power

dont say you are quoting from my site without quoting EXACTLY please, a simple link would've sufficed (and you missed out all in the post)

nice jobabob. does anything actualy happends wiht those towers
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-30 04:19:50 UTC Post #24632
play the map and find out ffs, jokes like this never work because it actually takes effort on someones part to download and install it
Posted 15 years ago2004-04-30 06:03:59 UTC Post #24634
hehehe. i never take effort
