pike's various stuff

Post by pike »

It took some time, but here it is - not exactly the one I promised, but still very similar - my first finished moviepack!

Maybe a bit too gray, but I wanted to make it as simple as possible, so you can concentrate on the game :) Settings can be a bit messed up, so feel free to post any feedback about it. Also included: donut .mod model and font file.

Enjoy!

Next one will be green :D

I see tiny lightcycles racing in a bathroom. :)

Ha! Not even tiny lightcycles, but rolls of colored toilet paper unraveling (in perfectly straight lines with perfect 90° turns, of course).

:) Your style is so unique, I'm just amazed. It profoundly changes the atmosphere of the game, IMO. Keep it up.

Heh, yeah. I only looked at the screenshot at first, wondering what those little things were. When I did try it (in my old 0.2.8.something) I got the dreaded mipmap corruption. :o

Look at the shiny floor, which was made possible by Cillit Bang. Seems it stains though.

By the way, jokes aside, I do like at least the walls and even stuck them in my moviepack. (I never turn on the floor, sky or mirroring, anyway.) Will have to try the font, as well.

Nicely done pike, if you are going to make another one, take a "Living Room" Theme :wink:.

Oh I just thought of an idea; add some moviesounds that have a bunch of reverb on them, like you are really in a bathroom. That moviepack looks like an acoustic nightmare, heh.

Like every respectable tronner I always play naked, but it felt a little weird like this in my room, so I had to move to the toilet.
Now that you mention it, I noticed the color of the walls is the same both in tron and in real life :ghost:

After 4 years of using my previous moviepack, I've started tinkering with the textures again and come up with something like this. Enjoy :D

First one reminds me of the room from Saw.
Is it supposed to look like a public toilet?

No, it wasn't intentional. But if you like to think about it this way I'm still happy :)
