Well you can always make something up, maybe a curse, or a plague, or the blight... =P

If you wanna know how to use mgaicavoxel, just install it and look at some of the tutorial videos. Basically, it's easy as drawing a sprite.

Anyways, for some news: I'm having a hard times right now, so I'm not so focused on the Shadows. So th development is right now somewhere close to half. I have to sort some things and at least, make some fucking decent story...


Hashing out a story and background behind it I can help you out with if you wish. I'm a lot of the time brimming with story ideas but don't have the time or the patience to fully flesh them out hence why I've not ever finished any mapping I've tried to do. But yes, if you can note me what you've hashed out so far and where you think you wish to take the player story-wise, I can help out in helping find a sense of direction and plot/story details that of course will help out tremendously in deciding where to go next with the mapping.

HexenMapper: Well, the radiation system is made by Vostyok. Its really simple. The are two scripts - one check if player is in radiation area. If he is in, he is given a dummy radiation item. When player has enough radiation items in inventory, things start to happen.
When player is not in radiated area, the amount of radiation dummies starts decreasing.
Simple as f*ck, yet efficient (and basically, it works the same way as radiation in real world)

But ask vostyok for permission.

patriot1776: Sent you a PM.

Spoiler:


Interesting! I think I would handle it very differently, but thanks for the explanation. I think the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. radiation system is excellent, and I would probably try to simulate that.

Its a pity that low exposure to radiation doesn't really do shit in real life until you get thyroid cancer 20 years later. High exposure can kill you immediately though, and I've heard that the first responders to the Chernobyl fire came back with insta-tan, having been exposed to so much radiation that their skin went dark brown.

I'd love to play this mod sometime to see how it feels! I assume you have an anti rad item?

No anti rads right now, though I might create some radiation-affecting items.

And that thing, on no anti-rad items right now, I think is pretty realistic, since like was said with the Chernobyl first-responders, who got insta-tanned, there was really nothing that could be done for them too, since they got such a mega dosage so fast. I'm read several other accounts from other kinds of nuclear accidents and much of the time then as of now, there's really not much in reality that can be done to get 'rads' outta your system and the effects, unless its a lethal dose, don't show up until later, within days or weeks if near-lethal. Only way to do anything about is either stay outta the highly irradiated areas or be super-suited up with a lead-lined envirosuit and breathing air tank to prevent from coming in contact with irradiated fluids and air and breathing irradiated air, so you don't get irradiated to begin with.

At the speed DooM-engine games are meant to take place at, mimicking those effects more realistically would require scripting to save how many 'rads' the player has on level exit, and then 'restoring' those rads to the player at the start of the next level, and then also every so often checking the player's rad numbers against some kind of 'dwell timer' or on a certain level number several levels into the mappack a special 'rad check' script. In either case, such a script would then check for the player's 'residual rads' and applying likely permanent debilitating effects like a permanent reduction of base health, speed, etc.

Yes, too much of work, for almost nothing.

Well, basically, the radiation effect could be achieved with simple sector based damage...but the one I'm using has a fancy geiger clicking sounds. And that counts! :lol:


But I need some help with coding stuff. Basically, I want to have some kind of journal system (think any RPG game). My coding skill are too low to create something myself...
I have created a little workaround with custom inventory items&ACS - when you are assigned a quest, the NPC gives you a "PDA" item with information about the quest. Its not ideal, but it works. Also, it serves the purpose of quest tracker - when you have the item in inventory, the quest is active. When not, the quest is not active.

NEW UPDATE:

I'm putting this project to deep sleep.

Because I have lost track why I'm creating this, and also because I have little bit destroyed my real life relationship. My real life is more important, so I'm putting this to hold.

I will return to this, one day.

One day.

Hi guys, I'm back. I'm slowly reviving this project, so don't expect something big. Since the weather outside is improving and gets better and better, I will work on this only when I'm in the mood.

Here are some videos.
