    Here is a sample of a randomly generated destroyed tower map for Link-Dead. We’ll see if I can come up with something more. tower

    1. Wow, it’s looking really okay, considering how fast you did it.

      I still think it’s pretty unnecessary right now, but if you’re doing it, heck, i’m anxious to see the results. Good luck!

    2. You know, this is interesting that Link-Dead will have tower maps. When it was announced that Soldat would get animated scenery, I was so excited, I began thinking up possible mods that could take advantage of the animation. I came up with one idea which would be like a sub-mod, where the idea is stealth, no rockets and sneaking down dark corridors of a tall building. The spy, thief or whoever who could make it to the roof first or kill everyone else, won. The corridors would have dark areas and tricky areas would have lights that would flicker or turn on then blink out for a while. Unfortunately, my dumb brain realized that the gif animations wouldn’t be synced, so that idea was out the window. None the less, I think with enough ingenuity, a similar mod is definitely possible in Soldat. The maps would be just like your map generator. Stairs would be at the end of each corridor, and there would be openings to fall down to floors below.

      So, first of all awesome! That screen looks great. Second of all, I think that this is a cool idea and I can already imagine the possible game play coming from this. Good job.

    3. Oh and hopefully you release the tower generator someday. I want to play with it now.

      Yeah, nice.
      but, is it really necessary?

    5. Underline

      well, im back!
      was thinking about your whole map generator again!
      first for me it was a waste of time!
      but now i can see the whole propose of it!

      keep up!!

    6. I was thinking today, this idea doesn’t seem so bad after all, in fact, my thoughts have been completely inverted since your last post on it.

      I won’t babble on about it, but I can see a way of finally fixing an old sniping problem: Everyone seems to know where the camping places are!. It would be great if you could make the map generator take this into consideration. good luck ๐Ÿ˜‰

    7. Don’t forget to add multi-story rooms, like theatres in sim-tower.

      Also, you’re using Internet Exploder? You.. you rumunie! D:

    8. Can’t tell you what I’m thinking as long as it’s not decorated with delicious tiles yet ._.

    9. Some dude

      wow it looks so crappy… any textures?

    10. Planning to me a jill in the jungle/prince of persia pre pre alpha?

      I really think you can win a indie award for this game ๐Ÿ˜‰

    12. Just noticed you use Box2D from the code there. Thought you did your own physics. Good luck with your game!
