If anyone were to, say, create a good Spacebuild map, would it be put on the server? Forlorn either needs an update or a new map :D

    As long as it runs, of course. :P
  • Mr.Niceguy976Mr.Niceguy976 Posts: 33Registered
    In that event, since I've lost all progress on my previous 2 spacebuild maps i've poured days of my life into-

    What do you guys want in a Spacebuild 3 map to make it as likable or better than Forlorn? :D

    Lag bunker (like forlorn XD) hidden bases asstriods with water and a sun that either kills you when you enter it OR when you enter it it teleports you to some random place :D

    i could see very bad things if it tele you *flys big ship into sun*

    also if you make one make it so you can see space from the planets (like new worlds)
    that way people can see space battles from earth and i think it just looks better
  • KillerKiller Posts: 69Registered
    could just make it player tele (couldnt you?) but yeah I suppose your right

    that idk but i have ran a jeep into a tele once and it ddint turn out so good.... but i like the killing you idea better
  • Mr.Niceguy976Mr.Niceguy976 Posts: 33Registered
    I think the tele thing is a good idea! It'll teleport to a crazy ass room. For the sake of sanity, I want to reuse Kamekazi's models for planets, but reskinned so it's original. KTHX

    Any more ideas? i like them :D

    A silo (giant moving door's circular) you know for cinematicly launching a satellite and maybe for the random room you can paint the walls with an animation (prop shouldn't put pronz there but hay I never said anything) and uhh buttons? dunno maybe you can add afk rooms like in austria beta where it has a protective shield OH make it so all props and ents are deleted in the spawn room (if your doing it separate) that way if someone decides to minge there they cant (a just in case) uhhh what else what else.... well thats all I got for now give me a few hours to think up more XD

    Bad idea to do that. Ragdolls in those spawn cullers crash the server.

    -enclosed area with water in it or very close, like, inside a node range AND grass if it's needed to drill ore.

    -Dont try to make fancy stuff like a teleport of props.


    Keep in mind your doing a map for gmod spacebuild, meaning, we can noclip outside building(lag bunker) so close it TOTALLY. You don't need planet with Tons of shit in it, keep it simple.

    Beside that, don't forget to make ressources in those lag bunkers and design it so we can hook up a pump outside to our ship once ready, keeping every LS stuff inside the lag bunker

    And, Lotsa lag bunker! I mean, we often see 10 player online, so, 10 lag bunker, hudge bunker. Or some hudge, some smaller...

    LAG BUNKERS TOO!
    "...wait, this IS rocket science!!!"

    ...Um. I have no idea what you're trying to say here, other than stuff about lag bunkers.

    Only one would be needed, to be honest. They're for building stuff without having to render or receive packets from outside sources. Won't help much with LS.

    This I did not know. No new ideas, YET!

    For resources-

    Forlorn's lag bunker shares air resources with the planet it's within, the spawn planet. :3

    If the lag bunker is a cube, I could make it have its own atmosphere! Having a cube lag bunker would look wierd, wouldn't it? And it would have to be inside a huge object.

    Would you guys mind if the lag bunker is inside the star and cube, or inside of a planet and more along the lines of the dimensions of Forlorn's lag bunker?

    Map Idea!

    I want to base the map off of a real star system. How about Gliese 581? It's pretty interesting- Wikipedia, TIME Article

    A few suggestions as well :)

    1. Use a cool looking space skybox, those maps look so cool!
    2. Like other people have said, try not to make too much fancy moving stuff or anything that will increase the entity count of the server. We already have such a huge problem with overflows when loading maps.
    3. The planets spheres on gm_galactic look great. I would recommend doing something similar to what he did.
  • Mr.Niceguy976Mr.Niceguy976 Posts: 33Registered
    I've tried to do a custom skybox before, and it worked.

    But it looked crappy b/c the stars that shined or were bigger than a freckle gave the skybox and the illusion of space away!

    So if you (or anybody) could post a link to a large, large space image I could cut into a skybox, it COULD be in the map! :D

    Personally, I'd suggest a 2048 x 2048 texture size. Especially for Space. 1024 x 1024 would be okay as well, Gooniverse, Vacuum, and Twinsuns have that.

    Interesting space skyboxes are a bitch, though. A star box is easy, but.. Nebula's and whatnot, all the sexy stuff.. Hard to blend.
  • Mr.Niceguy976Mr.Niceguy976 Posts: 33Registered
    I'd say! Trying to find a nebula with a black backdrop is quite hard (this makes it easier to lower its alpha and blend it on top of a starry picture).

    If you can find a picture of a nebula with black behind it as well as a nice large star picture, you'll be in the credits picture!

    I am sorry to say, but I am currently unable to use my PC. So this has been put on halt for a couple weeks.

    Plus I can't be on the server at all. But I will be on the forums occasionally!

    I'm saying this so everybody knows im not dead again. :P
