Spacefall

Postby razac920 » Thu Jul 17, 2014 9:09 am

As I wait for the acceptance of two scripting mods on filefront, I'd like to share my first actual "map" that I've been working on lately.
It's a rather simple design: have teams of jump-jet soldiers fight as they fall in a purely vertical map. More specifically, elite ARC troopers and jet droids battle in outer space, just above Mustafar. When they reach the bottom of the map, they fall through a portal and reappear at the top of the map once more (or they miss the portal and die). For fun, the area is filled with asteroids that can kill you if you land on them hard enough. An important feature is that they don't all fall at the same rate (with jump jets on, that is), so the distance between units is never constant.

Here are the two teams:
Hidden/Spoiler:

And here are their loadouts:
red: soldier - award rifle, time bomb, rifle, commando pistol
orange: demolition - rocket launcher, bulldog, flamethrower, detpack
yellow: sniper - beam sniper rifle, rotation control, sniper rifle, sonic blaster
green: medic/technician - award shotgun, healing, shotgun, ammo fusion cutter
blue: officer - chaingun, autoturret, han pistol, rally
purple: special ops - arc caster, shockfield/neuro poison, bowcaster, wrist rocket
brown: infiltrator - stealth, reprogram/mind control, incinerator, suicide bomb
gray: swordsman - lightsaber/electrostaff, shield emitter
black: commander - award pistol, team teleport, invulnerability, rage
white: fleet admiral - beam pistol, orbital strike, remote droid, award rocket launcher

Some of these are new, LUA-scripted weapons.

Here's a short video of some gameplay and features.

Love the concept. The team teleporter might be a bit over the top tho.

Wow, you've made a ton of progress since I last saw this! I really like all the new units. The team teleporter has got to be my favorite.

Whoa! That looks freakin' awesome! I think replacing the Star Wars music with a few selections from the musical score from Gravity would be incredibly fitting and awesome. :) I've even gone to the liberty of mixing the tracks into seamless loops and munging the lvl file for you to use.

Tracks I pulled pieces from are as follows.

Start track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zY1wd1ysu8#t=43
Mid track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFj6N0i6c_s#t=34 & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFj6N0i6c_s#t=288
End track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9veW-Om2Wtk#t=197

Let me know if you want to use it. ;)

Thanks, guys! I've been working on this a lot lately. Marth8880, sure,that would be great! I love the soundtrack for that movie, and I agree it would be a great fit. And yep lol, the colors are from the game Portal.

Would anyone be interested in testing it for me?
