It is alot of work isn't it but would be way worth it. Although I can never see it as being as big as Counter Strike, Red Orchistra and Desert Combat (If it ever done that is.) I reckon it would be a very good mod. Not that it was my idea because its the kind of game I want to play. Namely the reason Im buying S.T.A.L.K.E.R (Assuming it is ever completed.) But if I learn to make levels for S.T.A.L.K.E.R i'll be sure to release a map pack for the idea. (Pritty much the island but with nothing not in the original stalker game)
well, how are you going to create a "tropical" island, only using things form the orginial game??
Like Stalker said, nothing not in the original game? That means no palm trees or sandy beaches or jeeps or anything like that.
it would work for creating a post armageddon world maybe...but not a farcry type mod
Like I said before its not on a tropical island its not all junglay its more like Great Britan all countryside and cities and mountains a map pack could do it but would not be as good as a total conversion. The map pack would be a "second" zone as to speak only set on a island instead of the Chernobyl zone. (I bet I spelt it wrong again.) But to make it perfectly clear: THE ISLAND IS SET OFF THE NORTHERN IRISH COAST (Near Iceland very very cold) IT CANNOT BE ALL TROPICALLY THEREFORE IT NEVER WILL BE ALL TROPICALLY (Assuming that I actually create it.) The closest thing I hope to see in the map pack to a Jungle is a Forest (I reckon there will be lots of those in the zone.) but until the SDK is released there is no telling. Ooooo and beaches there is nothing wrong with adding new textures (namely sand). (GSC said they planned to have rivers as one way of stopping players leaving the zone.) Im sure that if you tweak things a bit the map pack is well within possible. All the jeeps and things like that won't be in the map pack that what a total conversion would do.
well, ireland sounds cool........i would download it, if you ever made it
Its all a game of if. But this is the one game im going to try hard at if the SDK is next to impossible to use for a near in-experienced user I guess it will be months even years till I get the hang of the level creator system. But if I ever do... There is no telling what I might come up with. (Execepting 'The Island.') Oooo that gave me an idea has anyone got any suggestions as to the name of 'The Island'? Note: The Island does not count as a name.
well, i plan on doing my best to use the SDK or whatever i need to made sometype of mod........but im gonna focus more on the clan
You have a clan for stalker? wow that was allfull fast. Anyway I was just looking at Sniper X's renders all I can say is WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW! Thats not a modder at work thats a full time Game-Developer at work a very good developer at work. Oh well I'll be sat on the chair of noob level designer when S.T.A.L.K.E.R comes out. Names for the island anyone?
Yes, i have plans for a clan.....there is nothing done on it, but there are plans.... and yes, sniper is a good modeler
