    PROPOSAL

    (+) Devise an event that utilizes icebergs as environmental hazards.


    DETAILS

    (+) Several directions can be taken to create an iceberg event:


    Approach #1: Create a Zombies/Bumper Boat-hybrid event


    Approach #2: Generalized environment hazard event (Type A)


    Approach #3: Generalized environment hazard event (Type B)


    Approach #4: Generalized environment hazard event (Type C)

    So titanic the gamemode?

    Just kidding. It's a good idea, but whould it swallow up FPS and or create lag? These objects seem kinda big and could lag the server if 20 people become huge props.

    They don't have to control the huge icebergs like the ones in the second image. Again, I included several event possibilities since I'm not sure exactly what would work the best.

    I didn't like the idea by the way, I straight up think it's dumb.

    Not a bad idea, it just probably wouldn't work very well considering the restrictions of gmod.

    Unless that's absolutely it, there must be something that could be implented that wasn't addressed in the previous request.

    That's true, Noriaki didn't really go into a lot of details about it. Maybe @Donkie could give some insight.

    considering its just a few props it might work out that way, but anything involving "standing on" wouldn't really work.

    What exact issues do you have in mind about players standing on top of the icebergs? Their compatibility to be used by anyone could create unique gameplay situations/ battle circumstances. It'd be fun to try out something unconventional + new.


    Otherwise, the best approach to take would probably be to cater to the first option: Creating a zombies-bumper boat hybrid event. Something would have to be done that would cause players to take damage when they make direct contact with the icebergs. We want to prevent the 'bergs from being used as platforms.

    ------------------------

    Worst comes to worst, the smallest of the iceberg props could be taken and just turned into an everyday Misc.-related construction item.

    I don't have anything against it, the engine does.

    Oh....

    No problem. I think it's safe to put the event concept for icebergs to rest. Apologies for the thread duplication.
