More screenshots of the gameplay will come soon, im just creating an episode in the comic.

Heres a preview of the story:
It begins in a cold, rainy, average November day in London, people are out Christmas shopping, there is a loud hum of voices and the occasional beep of a car horn. The odd homeless person here or there, everything is normal. Suddenly, a car smashes into Hamlins Toyshop and a dark shadow is cast over the shady streets of the city. Dogs begin to bark and gradually are silenced as electric blue rockets are sent hurtling to the ground from a strange looking flying object in the sky. People are screaming as their limbs are blown to pieces by these strange blue lights.

but im not sure whether to change this around a bit.

~UPDATE 18th Nov 04~New readme is now finished.

~UPDATE 19th Nov 04~New weapons menu finished: http://www.laughingllamas.com/members/KAMO/uploads/new%20weapon%20menu2.bmp

It's ok. The shading is too simple and some of the guns still look like the original guns

November 18, 2004, 1:32 pm
lol how do i make the shading "unsimple"?

November 18, 2004, 1:46 pm
By making it more advanced and good-looking.
Use Photoshop to do that, if you have it.

November 18, 2004, 1:53 pm
kk thx, but what do you think of the mod so far? apart from the weapons not looking adavanced lol.

jesus...3 topics for one mod? :$

November 18, 2004, 3:08 pm
yh lol, coz if other people read what other people have sed on the other topics, then they will think its a bad mod, which it isnt.

November 18, 2004, 3:35 pm
It's OK, I like the effort you put into it, and all the planning I'm sure you've done. The only thing I would recommend it making the graphics just a bit better. Right now all the weapons look a bit dull (no offense). I suggest better shading and making them look a bit more like modern guns.

The gore is pretty nice for people who like exaggerated deaths :)

Good luck.

thx, yours is one of the few positive comments ive had about this mod, and im trying to improve the weapons right now, ive been flamed in my other topic, but im carrying on regardless coz ive put too much effort to quit now, it may not look like much, but alot has gone into this mod.

November 18, 2004, 8:36 pm
linkin park...nice

Better, it's improved and the extra gore is really appealing to a sadistic mofo like me. The weapons can still be improved though, with some shading and use of more subtle colors. Try mixing your own istead of using the ones that come premixed, cause they suk. Use different shades of gray too. Overall, much better than the last time I saw it.

BTW - I like the powerups and stuff, the icons are easy to see and portray the meaning well.

November 18, 2004, 8:54 pm
Thanks, im still in need of suggestions, anyone wanna gimme some?

i know about the weapons shading lol, they look lame in screenshots, but they r good in the game but ill still try to improve them.
i do mix my own colours, but obviously thats not clear, so ill have to work on that aswell.

November 18, 2004, 9:01 pm
The guns look like one big blur... Anywho, why do you add red to the ends of the guns? What is it suppost to be?

November 18, 2004, 9:08 pm
lol dont know, the guns didnt look interesting enough on there own once id made them, so i thought id add the red bits lol. they can be laser sights or summit...i dunno......

the weapons could use some refining, something other than red spikes too... It's getting there though. Dont make any more topics for the same mod

November 19, 2004, 7:40 am
figured i would put a small addition here so as you don't have every second post. You seem to have an answer for everything.

November 19, 2004, 9:56 am
Well, you have definately make a BIG change to your mod, it is pretty good, not bad, but I suggest that you put a bit more attention to the detail of you of you interface weapons. More shading ... Gosteck looks awesome!

November 19, 2004, 9:58 am
just letting you know that the "shredder" is undergoing a new look as we speak.

November 19, 2004, 10:03 am
