hi just like to say im gonna be starting to make a hydroball map.

it will be y first ever JK2 map.

i know people will say im over ambitious, but im the type of guy who uses things without reading all the instructions, ill pick it up along the way.

but i have a map design, and im trying to make, a spherical shape ala FF10 arena, where you can knock your opponent out of the water if you want, and then juump back in and get going.

well its just preliminary for now. not sure exactly how the ball would react whilst out of water bu anyways, getting started :-)

im also thinking of including the blitzball music from FF10 intro in it to.

if anyone has any problems concerning that copywrite etc. please please tell me before i go ahead and do it lol

also, im not sure about this board but when making maps for half life and things, the more leet mappers take the micky, and shun those new ones.

please dont do that to little old me :-)

ok. well i just thought id post.

most people on theboard seem nice anyways.

Don't make your map too much like the FFX Blitzball arena, be "inspired", don't copy. Be original! ;) As for copyright problems, Square will probably nail your ass to the ground if they found out you used their music for it.

No. Original stuff is better, as I said above, be "inspired". :cool:

cheers thx very much. ive been scowring the net. and it seems that there is quite alot in common between this and half life. i understand how most the things work. problem i have now is finding where everything is in the program.

e.g. the user interface is totally different to world craft.

anyway thx for the help, and as soon as i get to a point where i feel i can post screenies i will.

hopefully ill do some justice to this great game. if any lol.

Wakka would be much easier to make as a model instead of tidus so i would try to make wakka first.

yeah wakka is awesome too. If someone makes a map please make the huge sphere from FF10 it was a cool big glass machina thing

Man this would be cool if done right. I would love to help out with anything that is needed, such as models or maps or even just ideas. I haven't played FF10 yet but I have played just about every other FF title, I'm a big fan of the FF Series.

If you want me to help then just say so please. Oh another thing, is it just me or in HydroBall do you move rather slow?

And finally we need some coders so that bots can be made especially for the mod, that way people don't have to be only to play it. This would be sweet.

yeah movement speed needs to be increased alot
hydroball is alot like blitzball except you wont be able to move up levels like in blitz which sux or techcopy or gain higher stats but its ok. you should be able to do special techs though like jecht shot or sphere shot heh that would be awesome!

Is this the same preacher I played against? (This is Orbital btw..think purple 'a' ;) )
Man you are a natural at the game! I look forward to seeing your map. Best of luck!
-------------------------------------------
On another note, I think the only things I would change thus would be:
-The ability to just 'Join Team Red/Nlue' like in normal Team games so that would eliminate waiting
-Just removing the saber (doesnt do a damn thing anyways, and making those waiting outside have the ability NOT to go past 1 on their HP as well as it regenerating soon as they stop being hit by whomever...would make Observing the game better I'd like to think. Then again...if the first option was established..who would care..Spectate until u decide to play..then just..jump in.

Anywho those are just my thoughts and oppinions, nothing more...nothing less

omg yeh hey orbital. Hydro ball world cup server ight :)

cool games. and cheers very much.

im blushing now.


anyways. i wouldnt mind some help. I have taken advice from the guy who told me to be inspired rather than recreate.

i know to some of you not having a perfect recreation is a bad thing.

but i am as the man said trying to be more original.

ive started doing some of the map so far, im going for the ancient, type arean. e.g. The bridges to walk accross are like big huge bones. like dinasour bone rib cage.

and im trying to get some nice fog in but im having tourble with that.

i seem to be picking things up quite quickly. but im having problems on some things. that most mappers out there can probably do in like 3 seconds lol.

anyway. my email is preacherM1903A4@aol.com.

Btw hope to see orbital or anyone else for that matte playing hydo ball. its great fun and i realy enjoyed playing it with you orb. we make a good team :-)

06-23-2002, 01:53 PM
I don't even play JO anymore. How sad am I? :eek:
I love this mod to death, could use a few 'fixes' here and there, but overall its amazing. So yea we'll play again.
Until next time......
