Now that's the spirit! B)


Come the time of peril, did the ground gape, and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us. Our bands of iron and hammers of stone prevailed not, and some did doubt the Builder's plan. But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

A Haunt would be scary if he didn't run at you when he saw you.

 

He stops what he's doing and stares in your direction for a few moments.

 

You're not sure if he saw you.

 

He begins to walk in your direction.

 

Has he spotted you?

 

Halfway to you, he breaks into a run.

 

So do you.

Ooh! Great work there - good asset to have around! ;-)

Cheers mate, not like I wanted to go to sleep now or anything lol.

 

I keep wondering about blind ghosts / enemies hunting you by sound, say in a horrific Hammer forge that has been gutted by fire - LOTS of noisy metal surfaces and difficulties. Just re-read "Oh Whistle and I'll Come to You my Lad":

The ghost in which seems to be some kind of pale, grasping, blind monstrosity reaching for his victim and searching by sound.

 

But I think it'd be too easy to sneak round enemies using sound alone, right?

This might be of use:

 

Awesome!

 

I can't wait to see that perched on a stoop or windowsill....

or at the back or a dank cave, or in an overgrown forest... :ph34r:

Damn, that just gave me the coolest idea ever for a Halloween mission. I'll have to save it up for next year. :(

Kind of reminds me of the new Enderman in Minecraft. They have a very scary behavior:

They are generally peaceful, but as soon as the player puts his crosshair on them, they freeze and start staring at the player. And when the player looks away, the enderman starts running / teleporting towards him. :)

I'm in. Maybe ...

 

Prebuilt content: two buildings

 

 

Damn, I wish I could create something like that someday! It looks so moody and feels so old and rotten :wub:

Myself, I always end up with clean cut, sterile corridors with no atmosphere whatsoever :angry:

Are you kidding? Trapped was a misty hell hole lit by baleful eerie ghost lights. So I think you can make something nasty and horrific when you like. =-P

... You can do it man. That's why you scrolled down this post.

 

You can seriously do whatever you like. After showing the last FM, I don't believe you have any limitations towards this editor. You can do whatever you imagine. Pusianka tells you that and awaits your FM with impatience ;).

Damn, I'm cruel. I'm just downright plain old-fashioned mean. But I'm going to have a few good laughs this Samhain, Halloween, All Hallows/Saints Eve, whatever you call it... a few good laughs... maybe even before the deadline ;)
