GIjOE TC - progress report

Okay, last weekend I re-kindled the GIjOE TC's flame and Carnage and I got some pistol graphics done, some detail work on level 1, lots of DDF coding for the pistol. Today I fixed more DDF stuff, cleaned up the wad, and did a few other things.
The pistol base was out of Guns PC (he got it from Counter Strike), but we added a ton of art on top of that. The DDF was from scratch.
Level 1 (in case you'd like to know) is a city scape. I am working on some detailing still. It's not the best map I've seen, but it's the first I've put so much time and effort into.

Lizzard Commando; I will be putting together a pre-beta that I'll let you test.
If Doom II Guy is interested, he can test it too.
If anybody else is interested, post here, but I warn you I wont be sending a pre beta to more than 5 people.
If you do opt to be a tester I'd like you to put your opinions here, not in my email.

Thanks guys.

Nice, how about some screenshots?

Sorry, it's not far along enough. Unless you want a few anyway, then I'll try for that.

More progress I forgot about, I have completed some frames for the "punk" enemy. (I plan to make a few diferrent punks, to keep it non-repeditive.)

Hey, what`s wrong with punks!

I`m not a punk myself, but I don`t think it`s OK to just label them as enemies.
For your project: Make sure you have a credible story, which states why it is "justifiable" to kill a specific group of punks.

Now if you were using yuppies/ jocks/ american presidents as enemies, there would be no need to explain yourself ;-)

It's up, the screens are there!!! Known bug> graphics in enemies and gear don't work. I'll fix it later.

Thanks sniper joe.

Could you tell me the web page? I forgot it. (Maybe you should put it in your sig. People usually do that about their projects).

Heh, well it makes sense in respect to the TC... after all GI Joe is a genuinely fascitoid character.

Oh, I forgot to say that I'm not stereotyping punks as bad. It was just the name i thought of at the moment. Got any suggestions?

The pre-beta has been sent to Lizzard Commando and sniper joe. Expect their reports in the near future.

I can't get to your page from the link on your profile so I don't know if these punks are the only (or principal) enemies you're including. You should certainly include the usual enemies of the character, though. That Cobra guy, his minions and whatnot.

Okay, Lizzard Commando, I tried to email you the zip, but it didn't go through. Got another email?

to myk; This isn't a GIjOE vs Cobra mod. Sorry, that may come later. (Or in a bonus level! SHHH!)

Yo, I just checked out your page and realized
something- are all your guns just rips from
Guns PC? if many are, I can help you get new
and better animations of the same(or better) guns.
Nick Perrin's the name. EDGE modding's the game!

from Nick`s site:
Desert Warrior: The Isreali Special Forces simulation Total Conversion.

Wow, I always wanted to play a TC as a soldier:
shooting Palestinian children through the head,
bombing the homes of the innocent,
executing the unarmed,
shooting at ambulances,
firing at "evil rock throwing terrorists",
... well you get the point...

Oh, no, i should have made it clearer, I think
you misunderstood. The TC is based on the Isreali
Special Forces as oppose to just the Isreali Military.

There a few reasons for this. First, what you talked about,
and the special forces only engaged in counter-terror operations
and the like. These are the guys sneaking into the large house that contained a group of terrorists in the Taibeh Raid, saved hostages
from a hijacked, parked plane, etcetera. you can check out the site,
even, at http://www.isayeret.com and see for yourself these are not
the same guys. Also, if i were to make a TC based on american SWAT
teams or something, it would be too overused-weapons, themes.
This way I still have the Counter-Terror theme with more variety.

Actually Nick...you're wrong and he's right. Israeli Special Forces is the Sayaret Matkal. Last time they did a hostage rescue they executed all of the "terrorists" after they'd disarmed and cuffed them.

And Ehud Barak, one of Israel's ex PM's was a member, and he himself executed one of the founding members of that group that Arafat found...i can't remember what it was called but the assassination was pretty cold-blooded, and the victim's son spoke out recently with several palestinian and isreali youths regarding the violence. These guys are no better than the army; in fact they're worse.

I think you may want to change your project if the subject matter might actually offend people. I dunno, just a thought. It might be better if I e-mail this to you, I dunno.

Me and others already pointed this out to him on another thread. It was under 'Wads and Mods', but is appears to be gone now. There is still a thread under 'general' about this TC, which had its story changed because arguments described above.

Thanks for caring though...
