Xmas jff mod?
« on: November 23, 2008, 11:15:59 AM »
Well, one year ago I've started making jff Xmas mod. I've nearly done one map but then everything got wrong in real life and eventually I had no time to continue. So, guys, wanna try making it? Like everybody doing stuff he want to include and maybe something will happen.

So, that's what my map is. It obviously uses some c-s and they hunger textures so I wonder if this is legal. If not... erm, too bad, then I need to leech replacements from cgt.

This map is about secret-frozen-underground-Santa's-base.

Santa's "publicity" home. Looks pretty much like normal.

But, if you'll go through the door masked as the picture, you'll get...

there:

This is some kind of a throne hall. And that icy stalagmites are basically a buttons used to open hidden doors.
So, this is conference hall. I had some fun on posters here, but the main idea was to decorate this place as a classic "evil genius conference hall".


Suit chamber (hope suit will be replaced with something. I planned adding magic staff here):

Presents room:

And that is your sled (yes, I made this map for spirit 1.7, hope we will work on it, it has snow and stuff)

Secret (for casual people) entry:

The sled is brush based ? Doesn't look good to be,  I guess a model would be the better choice here.

Anything. It's the community project, so that means it would be one big mess anyway :D

That looks bad :(

Original image wasn't mine btw (just cropped it and skewed and stuff). Mine is with frozen throne :D


Anyway, guys, we need kind of storyline. Or just the main idea, what's this mod about.

Story, hmm...

You are this drug addict and one day at your rehab hospital you find the drus in your bathroom, and, waiiit..

Okay, Yoo are teh grodan friemen and you infiltrate secret base under gman comand, you nothing know about it is SANTA base!

No..

You are some random guy who didn't get the presents he wanted as usual. And soon you discover that no-one did and no-one has, and you have to find the source of the evil propaganda that santa gives you nice presents, and eliminate santa, or something.

Well, actuaaly I was thinking about some kind of "evil conspiracy", styled mostly in spy (James Bond) style, involving Santa as an evil genius, who did this stuff on purpose, but I thought about making HIM a protagonist.

Santa, oh that boy.

First idea that came to mind when thinking of an evil santa.

Of course, but we need to tie things up, and if they all will oppose each other...

That's perfect, and mine awas just something before I had to go to school.

Also, he should have the Santastika-band around his arm, though.

I'm not sure if I want to use this yet. It's kinda on the edge.

So, what about the storyline again?
We need to tie this things into one storyline: evil Santa, conspiracy(conspiracies are always funny), Christmas.
And what about minions and foes?

Santas little helpers.

They are grunts running about with toy guns, and if possible; lasers.

It is JUST what I've done first in my mod. They were poorly reskinned and remodelled (pale skin, blonde, pointy ears and red-and-green outfit. And death animation, lol) hgrunts, so I hope somebody will make that.

Keep brainstorming.
I've done "santafying" red hats, need a concept on the result of... santafication  for them :)
Though, this idea is based on headcrabs too much, I think. So keep brainstorming.
