(Sauerbraten) The Park is coming... please refrain from screaming!
« Reply #50 on: July 21, 2008, 11:40:56 PM »
The Sauer server may make a comeback soon, but not sure yet. However, I have some interesting news.

I am working on a somewhat small scale deathmatch map in Sauerbraten (due to an internet outage today, and lack of anything to do, I added several new things to the map). "The "Park"" ;) is a small, dark, and foggy map, taking place in an old abandoned park.

If you are easily scared and/or have the lights off where you are at, heed my warning that this might freak you out a bit if you are into this kind of "imagine this" stuff...

The layout:
You are dropped in a small, collapsed tunnel that was originally one of the main ways into the park. Blood covers the ground as you exit the tunnel. As you reach outside you notice an untrimmed hedge maze and a small puddle of muddy water. Fog is everywhere, limiting your viewing distance to several feet (~5 meters). To your right is empty, grassy landscape. To your front is more empty grassy landscape, and the entrance to the hedge maze. To your left is the roadway leaving/entering the park, and behind you are 3 parking spaces, marked with the glowing green words "PARKING". There is lighting placed within the tunnel and inside the hedge maze. Entrance to the maze does not guarantee survival. Entering the maze, the dimly lit ground lighting only illuminates 3-5 feet (1-1.75 meters). The ground is covered with leaves. The way out is the way in. The question is: how long will you survive?

There is also an easter egg hidden within the map, and weapons/powerups are accessible. Now, turn off the lights, make the room silent, and read that last paragraph over again. Muhahahahahaha.... >:D

(NOTE: To play this map as intended, game settings must be altered. These are temporary and will revert back, however playing without the altered settings can be considered cheating, and it takes much away from the feel of the environment.)

Settings to change (enter into console via ` (Grave - the irony, I know ;D) or T):
/waterspec 50
/fog 75

By the way...

You are not ALONE

OK, seriously, go outside and try not to soil yourself any further. It's embarrassing! ;D

-Brandon

P.S.: The map is only partly finished, and I want to, if possible, add custom sound effects (I got some ideas that can REALLY give people the creeps). It is in a playable state, although once the scare passes by, it can get a bit boring fast (unless you have stealthy opponents... ;))

Images to come soon!

It should be done sometime in August, but no promises. I need to add some more scenery and locations, but most of them are already existent from other random brainstorming maps I have...

I am working on the map right now and have changed the sky, edited the small hedge maze (of death), added a LOOOOOOONG fence and archway, and clipped the exterior of the map to prevent falling. The fog also looks better @ 150 and not 75, so the new setup for the map is

/fog 150
/waterspec 50

I also added small BARELY noticeable debris from the fallen tunnel pathway, and adjusted 2 lights. Small stuff.

Screenshots are below :) (click to see full size)

It took me like 90 minutes to do that stupid fence alone, so I'll host it soon for "review" ;)

Must add some more creepy lighting and some objects to add some sense of being to the open.. dark... quiet field. Too quiet. :P
