Hiya All

Me and a Friend have begun work on a Futurama Mod for Half-Life. However, if the mod is to be half decent, we need a team. If anyone can contribute by: Mapping, Modeling, Coding or Creating art to be used within the game, would be much appreciated.

Anyone who can do good impressions of the Characters can contribute their voicing skills too!  wink

The game is still in the planning stages, and any question/ideas are welcome.

A website (still in production) can be found at http://www.futurama-mod.tk

Thanks!   big grin

Instead of getting people to do impressions for the voices, why don't you use actual audio files taken from the show? I'm afraid I know nothing else about game coding so I can't help you.

A  game? Clool.  I'm good at Leela, mainly singing, but you really should use what M Jackson said.

Aha, almost forgot, welcome to PEEL.

I think you'd have to be careful not to breach any copyright law with that idea. Fox are particularly ruthless with 'their property'.

I'd be willing to help if I can. Areas of programming I'm not very good at, but I can probably do some artwork (or if you need it, I could do some music too  big grin). And I could try my hand at some impersonating.

And welcome to PEEL too!

I do a good Nixon impression. And I'm pretty good at programming, as long as I know what code I'm programming in.

I'm fairly sure Fox wouldn't attack a <edit> map </edit> with Futurama sounds in it... there are just so many UT2k3 maps that I play that have copyrighted music in it, and they are still being played, so I think that nobody cares. So, IMO, it's ok to use sounds from the show.

Any idea as what the objective of the mod is going to be, or just plain deathmatch (although there's nothing wrong with a good old match  wink). Or is it a single player mod?

my suggestions, dont use halflife it's too damn dated, use HL2 when it comes out or if u cant wait try q3a, please use a game that has a 3d engine worth playing on!

my other suggestion, use me for voices!

For voices - as long as they're reasonable excerpts, and not entire soundtracks, they're covered under Fair Use rights, as parody or quotation, or both.

Half-Life's engine IS an engine worth playing on. But I would recommend keeping your options open for the release of HL2.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

Firstly, I could wait for HL2, but when it comes out, im betting that it'll have a different system of mapping/coding/everything, and no one will know how to do anything for quite a while.

I could use voice samples, but then, what do I do if I need some custom voicing? On that note, anyone who would like to be in the mod voice-wise, send samples to bullettime03@aol.com.

Grim: I know your Zapp/Kif are brill, so your auto-hired if I need those :P If you can do any others, great!  smile

The HL engine may be dated, but its well known and CAN look very nice.

As before, more ideas are welcome   smile

Thanks,

Cheeez

Little More Info: The Mod will probably have several modes, including Deathmatch and Teamplay. Some of the missions (or maps, whatever :P) will possibly involve delivering packages in a set time limit, or mabye ideas from the show, like collecting Space Honey without being killed by vicious space bees   big grin.

We may include cut-scenes, and some 'Lame Ass (TM)' humor by me :P.

It could work in SinglePlayer and Multiplayer, depends how big a team we get and how good they are :P

EDIT: Send Samples of everything (Artwork/Voicing/etc.) to bullettime03@aol.com

Thanks!

Actually, looking at most of the HL2 sites, it appears they've tried to make "modding" easier this time around. They've set up that orange room design stage, so you can tweak a level without mucking about with textures, and they're already supporting quite a few (mostly already commercial) mods.
