    the Expendables

    the pursuit of an idea.

    inspired by http://kotaku.com/5935400/every-game...s-has-them-all


    see the image full size at dA

    multiplayer gameplay concept,

    @ DM-1on1-Trite
    Mutators: Outsider, Ballistic Weapons 2.5 w/Fische11 & Jack_Carver's Bonus Pack, UT3 Style Slow Time Kills

    this thread is really for "ideas"

    the goal, simply put,
    is to have numerous characters of video game origin in the same game
    iconic heroes, heroines, villains
    current & classic
    also,
    it should make sense for the character to wield the weapons available in UT2004

    a character will be considered completed once,
    a UT2004 Model is made, along with a corresponding voicepack for personality

    Marcus Fenix - Gears of War - UT2004 Model YourPackage - VP MJpoland

    anyone is welcome to help gather models, make voicepacks, & rig models for UT2004

    Add Serious Sam and Doomguy to the mix, and it's gold.

    Incidentally, Max Payne was on my list of things to try and make voice packs for. Though most of his dialogue is rather long monologue stuff, so it's kinda hard to work with.

      if only i could find models for those guys! i'm also looking for Niko Bellic from GTAIV.
      whoops, forgot to include Commander Shepard (Mass Effect 3). guess i'll have to create an image of him separately. you try running 11 instances of UT2004 at once.

      yes! please do. i would love for Max Payne to have a proper voicepack, with memorable lines like, "There was a blind spot in my head, a bullet-shaped hole where the answers should be." & "The past is a gaping hole..." looking forward to it!

        I can give Payne another shot. It'll take a while, though.

        Kyle Katarn wouldn't be too bad a candidate either.

          that would be great! i know it's difficult, i really appreciate your effort. keep me updated. his model's a little small compared to the others, so i plan on scaling him up a bit.

          yep! he's planned, i already have Katarn's model.

            Seriously? You did what?

            I came up with an easier way to do group poses a long time ago. You can see an extreme example in this video

            Whenever you connect to a server, you see a black screen. The black screen is really a map called Entry.ut2. Looking at its proprieties in UnrealEd, you'll see that its DefaultGameType set to Engine.GameInfo. A strange side effect to starting a map with that has Engine.Gameinfo set as the game type is that if you use the freezeall command in the console, and suicide or die, your character's body will not fade away and with be stuck in the pose that you were in at the moment of death.

            What you'll need to do to prepare is to edit a copy of the desired map so that its gametype is Engine.Gameinfo. Delete all the player starts except one that will be directly behind your intended viewpoint. Next start a normal DM Match, killbots, then freezeall. Use lockcamera to freeze your viewpoint and then move your character where it needs to be. Use the changecharacter command so that when you respawn you'll be the next character, then pose and suicide. Repeat as many times as necessary.

            EDIT: I just did some testing to see if these instructions worked. Frozen suicides did work for the old edited version of Entry.ut2 I used for that video, but it didn't work when I modified a regular map. I'll try to figure out what exactly triggers this effect tomorrow.

              Well! I have to admit it, you've been discovered voice packs for UT2004 to make, glad you came good at them, in fact, the voice packs in blue are currently developed by others (at least you can make these VPs yourself).

              Here's the thread you might be discovered:
              MJpoland's Ultimate Voices (Commander Shepard, Marcus Fenix and Duke Nukem are included).

              OR check my thread for more voices:
              Custom UT2004 Voice Pack Links

              Cheers!

                      thanks for the reply Blade! of your list, the only ones i'm passionate about are
                      "Quake Guy" (need model),
                      already have a model for Cate Archer,
                      Lara Croft is planned but she'll be part of a female group i imagine? (not sure which model to use)
                      John Mullins is planned if i could only find a model!

                      the rest, i highly suggest,
                      if you have passion,
                      check out my simple tutorial video for making models,
                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THpX3uquQ_A
                      & maybe you can help! since it seems you know about 3D modelling!

                          Nice model tutorial video mate. I wish I could do that for sure (on my own).
                          Model choices I'm passionate about are some of the actors/actresses in Hollywood and international.

                          Off-topic: The movie The Expendables 2 has a female group, Maggie Chan (Yu Nan).

                            thanks for checking out the tutorial! Tux, i think you're passionate about all things unreal & you can definitely make models.
                            it's even easier to pre-pose models using XNALara, and send them into Milkshape3D
                            check out these models you might be interested in,
                            Stallone
                            Bond, i have a Connery Model too, but unposable.
                            Potter
                            Keanu
                            Scarface
                            i think i've come across Will Smith & Liam Neeson models, too. there are many out there, you just have to search the forums, google, etc.
                            find a model you're very passionate about, & i'll help ya if you run into a wall.
                            i do plan on releasing more tutorials about prepping a model for unreal, texture wise, fine-tuning, and more advanced features in UnrealEd.

                            some would be pretty epic.
                            i do plan on working on these guys,
                            Arnold
                            RoboCop, imagine with a nice metal shader, & an ED-209 monster = )
