The Spectacular Adventures of Gec!
« on: June 28, 2009, 12:14:00 am »
Get 'em here folks. Marvels and Perils await. Humor and tragedy beckon. Well maybe I'm just being too advocative. Choose from the following tales.

Beyon City Episode 1

Embark on a quest full of talking vending machines, burritos, and a guy in search of a bathroom. People will simply be annoyed by your presence. But as you fulfill your trivial mission, another tale unfolds.

Shivaruu Canyon Run

Many centuries before the Halcyon Wars, many centuries before the Sombrerons even reached the stars. Civil war and corruption were rampant. Relive history set in the feudal past of the Frontier Era. Cowboys and bandits, good guys vs bad guys. A Sombreron faces a formidable pack of bandits. Where has this hero appeared? Why does he have such strong integrity to face a world already oppressed by it's own greed. Not much is known, but his legend starts here.

Beyon City Episode 2
In last weeks episode, a rather inconsiderate captain left Beyon City after aiding a rather constipated civilian. Leaving the ill-prepared law enforcement to handle a rather big problem downtown. Assume the role of a recently sobered Komodile to perform some "community service" for being drunk in public. Don't mind you're panicking comrades, they're just... a little concerned about wetting themselves. This is a preview only and is an unfinished adventure.

The Stupid Kingdom
A reinterpretation of a classic tale. A valiant knight, trying too hard to speak in Ye Olde English, seeks to vanquish a disgruntled dragon to win the heart of a damsel. Though the strangely fashioned beast does seem to have a strange attraction for a rather portly damsel in distress. But who cares? She seeks (slightly) true love. Witness the outcome yourself. It's based off a classic I made up, I swear!

Tales of Jolai
Discover the world of the Eliathan. Where Random Giant Beach Ball Attacks are a danger to be on the look out for. Unravel an intricate series of events that lead up to the catastrophe. Then you'll know. It all makes sense. Well, not really.

Well it's just a preview, you're not meant to beat it just yet.

And Maxis really needs to fix building collision issues. NPCs are to stupid to walk on them.

Yeah, that's involved too. I was just talking about collision in general with buildings.

In "Shivaruu Canyon Run" I keep falling behind the back wall and getting stuck on the top level right before the boxes/crates. It the corner right next to the heath thing.

The first version of episode 2 is finished and posted. Go try it now.

A little tidbit about this one. I originally intended this to be a running mission. I was trying to put a tank with a small platform and railings for the player to stand on. The tank would continuously drive around the planet's hemisphere on a continuous loop while you stood on the tank shooting a monster that's chasing you behind. Sadly, you can't even stand on a vehicle and stay there while it moved, even though Maxis said it was possible. It wasn't. The player would just float on top still falling. Even with the guard rails to hold you in, the tank would leave without you.

These things take forever with my sluggish computer. :-\

Hey, can anyone record the first 3 acts or so? I want to see how timed the music is in act 2. I think I got it right, for an adequately fast computer. But the timing is a heckuvalot delayed on slower computers.

Great job on this Gec. I noticed some of the aliens had names while others didn't. You should either name them all or leave them their race name. And that comic was hilarious. I had horrible time on my mission because i was just listing to the comic. Also my guy just sunk away using "sneak" ability so the t-rex never followed me to the bar.

From the looks of it, Gec is just using the classic GS creatures.
