Atari Mod (Work In Progress)
« on: May 14, 2008, 09:02:57 pm »
Download Here

Just an idea I've had rattling around in my brain for a few days, and so I put it into action.

Imagine Soldat in an atari-style setting. Wireframe EVERYTHING and cheesy 2-bit sound effects?

Well, here it is.


The map you see here is a custom map, and the old version to boot. I've chanted it up A LOT.

You can download this Training-area style map here! It's simply called "Simulator". There are two Simulator files included here. One is called "0_Simulator", and the other "ctf_Simulator", this way you can easily select it for any mode (other than inf and htf).



I'd like to point out that this isn't finished. One of the things I'll be correcting is the Inviso-Gun's little display image. It does not correctly portray what the weapon does. The Inviso-Gun itself can be seen, but it fires invisible and completely silent bullets, the only evidence of which is when they HIT something.

And, yes. I did make a Pac Man gun.

So, anyway... this mod is just for fun. Enjoy it, laugh a little, then play a more serious mod.

Copyrights- Nothing in this mod belongs exclusively to me. The sfx are literally from atari games (with some of the old soldat sfx still there, which is why this is a WIP), and the graphics? Well, I did make them, but it's simple stuff.

LOL. This look pretty damn funny =]

Very original idea and I like the interface weapons. Sure does remind me of those old school games.

Keep it up =D

Thanks. XD

Anywho, new post to proclaim that the AtariMod is up for download, finally.

Sorry about the wait, people. I did NOT expect that little setback.

You better use atari sounds or I will be disappointed.

I was going to make an 8-bit soldat mod but never got round to it...

Funny story about my resolution.

I've got this flatscreen monitor that uses it's own whacky resolution that Soldat doesn't seem to properly support. 1280 x 720 widescreen.
I've affixed Soldat AND my resolutions to synch as best as I could.
So, please... no more comments about my resolution.

You better use atari sounds or I will be disappointed.
You won't be. :)

~UPDATE~
I've finished the map!

It doesn't look anything like the screenshots, because I changed it completely. >_>

It's a very simple, very small training-room area called Simulator. I have it in two seperately-named files called "0_Simulator" and "ctf_Simulator", so you won't have trouble selecting it for ctf or team-match/deathmatch games.

Included is it's texture file, "Wireframez". Make sure you put it in the main Soldat's "Textures" folder, or the map may bug out on you.

xD The most original mod in last ....years. [pigtail] Pure awesomeness. Seriously, the interface guns are great and so funny, style is pretty original.

Only one thing I wanna ask, shouldn't be the interface picture (4) changed with (5) ?

Not that I'm trying to suggest that he should be flamed, but would someone mind telling me why Gnoblar and I both got twated at for posting a work in progress while nobody said a damn word to this guy for doing the same thing? Could we have some consitency maybe?

By the way, while it's an original idea, it looks kinda crappy. And I understand it's supposed to cuz it's an atari mod, but I don't remember any atari games looking like that...

This mod is AWESOME, specially the minimi :] the sound effects make me feel all warm inside too. BUT!!!!! you should add this in:
Old school explosions? like a big green square breaking off into little green squares

that would put the cherry ontop of this cheesy 2-bit sound effect cake.
Got your hands bound, and your head down, and your eyes closed. You look so precious now.

Well, if we assume I did this on purpose, then yes. I probably do deserve to be flamed.

I didn't think that this was a "partial mod". While, yes... it is a WIP, everything about the game has been changed in this mod (save the interface). I assumed the "partial" mod section was for mods that only changed one or two aspects of the game, and left the rest alone... like say, changing the gosteks into female templates, but leaving the guns, sounds, and gun physics completely alone. At least, that was the impression I received while perusing both sections.

Hopefully, a misunderstanding that won't see me frowned upon...

Just so we're clear, I only call this a "Work in progress" because there MIGHT be other things that I want to do with it. I don't see anything that needs to be added now, but I want to make it clear that it may be updated in the future, that's all.

This mod is AWESOME, specially the minimi :]
Personally, it is my favorite weapon. That, and the Minigun.

BUT!!!!! you should add this in:

That's...

...

That's... actually not a bad idea.
