@mooseberry: I applaud you, sir.

I forgot; what OS are you using?

@Plague Bringer, + OPTIMUS +: What were you guys saying about concept art?

Thanks, you're probably the first person who has done that in a while.  ;)

I use windows xp.

i think it's not necessary to think about the "Third Race" as a mechanical culture. it can be biological also, or ghost-like or anything. i'd like to know the idea of the devs about the trem "background story", if it exists at all.

and ofc everyone should try to make the concept art who is in the mood, and we can vote for them or merge the best ideas into a new collective fantasy.
my older [around 2005] drawings are here: http://art.rpg.hu/categories.php?cat_id=88, i'm sure i would do something grotesque and unmodellable, but i am willing to give it a try.

I may give it a try. Not as of admins being the controllers (remember my idea about controllable turrets anyone? :) ) But a try to create something dumber than Amine's trembot and a "non-client" but still moving entities.
I like that idea.
Hey, that sounds a little familiar.
Wrong thread perhaps?

I guess theese threads are merged into one where stupidity-fans (like me) can outrage their wannabe-forge attitudes.

So doN't be afraid, you are a genius ;-)

With player1's help, the concepts of research, destructible environments, and robot factories are coming together, along with a dash of juggernaut. But he couldn't of done it alone.

yup, and there are concept artists, modelers and coders out there waiting for the chance :-)

[EDIT]: and judging by the title, i just realised that with the "Dungeon Master"(bullseye name, Player1) incuded, another opportunity would be added to Trem, so it would be kind of....:

FPS + STAREGY + RPG

along with =Troy='s idea about non-stage-based class/equipment developing, it would be rly unique.

I think thats going off track with the idea here. Also note that trem already has rpg style game play but disguised as evolving and equipment buying.

About that concept art gallery of yours Optimus. I really loved it. Especially this one.

I am being totally confused now, since I have always taken this thread, gaja and sentinel robots as 1 thing... Since there is no big differences in coding for them.. But Id better stop talking now until I have something to show.

Actually, I'd like to thank Lava for helping me to try to think of ideas that are more doable, and for steering me towards existing assets and consensus about various undeveloped concepts. I thrive on adversity.

That's all I've found. But since Tremulous is open source, you're free to continue from there, if you wish.

There are a couple of threads about Tremulous stories on the forums, if you look for them. I know Supertanker writes some Tremulous stories that are pretty decent reads. :)

I don't think aliens were the ones that wrote that one. And humans always cover their story to sound as if they were righteous to make them selfs feel better about what they have done.

hmmm i'll check out the supertanker stories, let's see if we can forge a concept what fits into the tremworld.
but i'm still curious if the original idea was based on a story or just the game mechanics frame.

Actually a sort of bio-robot-cyborg would be better (IMHO) then pure robot / pure bio

Hey, I guess we'll have to PM Plague Bringer and + OPTIMUS + and see what they want to draw and how soon they can do that. What object should we/you/they/you-all start with? Box? Crate? Barrel? Robot?

If I get a chance, I'll PM dudes and see if they were serious and still have the time. Or you can...

Working on it. I got loaded with English homework, so I'm waiting for a long weekend. I'm also waiting to get some time to draw some concept art for a hopeful mapping project. And no, I won't release after a month of development.

If you need barrel models and textures, you can respectfully "borrow" some of Overflow's that he has on his public site.
