this looks really good. I want play this. I hear you on the memory cap. no need for to much stuff. the more entities the more more it will eat up.

more than what meets the eye

Looking at your screens (which look amazing btw) I must say that it looks like your shadow quality is very high. That takes up quite a bit of memory, I believe.

Thats because it is. In gamedesign, you should never be afraid to make sacrifices to get something working. FPSC is a great tool to teach that lesson

I would be so focus on the lightmap shadows. graphics is a great thing in still pics but this not a still pic contest. this is a game we all want to play. I would focus on gameplay and a stable game that will work when loading it up. we all know fpsc can do way better when it come to graphics. so most like me will understand the reason of your sacrifices with the shadows. it does not make your game any less of a game. but it will if your game becomes more unstable because of the shadow quality. you have 2gb cap make the best of it. you can make up for it with good game play,sounds,level design and creative. there are a lot of games on here but what going to make your game stand out is creative. something new to the fps type of game. well good luck with your game.

Thanks for the tips , I am starting to show some restraint when building my maps , your right about gameplay it's should be the priority . But I have a limited knowledge of scripting that's my next phase of work and I need to learn more . Sound well it's very important , my brother should help , but in terms of gameplay I think that's where I am lacking the most but with some work ill get it better ,
Thanks for the tip i should be off of work soon so ill be able to work more on this , ill get a YouTube video up soon
And a demo ASAP ,
Thanks for your comments
Hope (r.e.m) will be the best it can be

I think I notice that you use "full lightmapping". This feature should be disabled as it slows down your game, requires too much performance and consumes too much memory for very little effect.

I see that you like to work with shadows? Good! Thats essential in FPSC as you can make a mediocre scene look fantastic with the right lightmapping.

Here is something you need to learn: Your contrast between really bright lights and pitch black darkness looks off. Try to use very broad lights with really dark colors and some small bright ones close to your lightsource...this will look like real light reflected by its environment and it will make your scene look a lot less "chopped" and "distorted".

You once told me that you work with photos? Its a good thing for a beginner to have some system in his workflow rather than just click around. So good idea on that

Furthermore: your lighting colors are really agressive and I don't think thats the tone you want to go with in this game. I'd suggest to use less strong colors and take a look at the same scenes. Or when was the last time you saw some sewer/maintenance area/subway with extremely green or red lights?

It looks okay so far! Keep it up

You should place your lightbulb to the source so it looks like its coming from the source

The light is also floating in the air.

If you look at the lamp...it has a slight yellow color and it looks really old. Wouldn't it be natural if the light would be slightly yellow too?

Another important lightmapping trick is: never use plain white light.

Hi everyone

Need some help here and advice from all of you who have been so helpfull , seems like I have lost a little focus on R.E.M , besides the asylum level which is functional, I am trying too many things on the my other levels ,
I have a story in mind and but seems a lot of fps games are taking the asylum route , I have always understood this was a perfect place to make a fps creator game but I am not it feeling any more . the warehouse level seems
Ready to go and I have managed an outdoor area which seems good if a little simple ,
(R.E.M) was based off urban exploration pictures I was looking at and began researching the movement and came across a lot of interesting ideas from the images they have collect especially from asylums pre 1960
And when I am mapping it seems like a constant state of experiment , learn as you go but sometimes you go in circles ,
I can put the game together and put it up somehow ,
Any tips on staying focused and knowing when to scarp an idea

Also I may want to change the whole thing to a silent film noir idea , heavy use of post effects ect and useing that style of story telling and music , trying to get away from resident evil and silent hill thing

I will find the time to get a video somehow...
Thank you
R.E.M will be finished soon I hope maybe a demo would help , if I focus on that maybe it will generate some good feed back
Thank you
