In my question thread I announced that I'd be doing a level based on Lara's TR3 house, at night. Chocolate, I'm not copying your idea, I started this level a while before I knew you were doing yours.
So this thread is to show off some screenshots and stuff.
This isn't the same as my question thread, now I'm gonna use that for questions, and this for showing.

This level will include some secret areas, and an old enemy'll be returning.
Maybe if I can, I'll include one other level, which'll be a surprise.
I'm using the Lara's TR4 house .PRJ file to build from.

So, here's some screenies:

Nice! When will it be done? Can you please add extra moves because I hate playing the same moves all over again... Lol, sorry...

I've added the Lara jumping up a ledge instead of vaulting up, the realistic grabbing, and the Legend swimming animation. If anyone wants any more moves, just post the link. ;)

More screenies:

Well done!

Some moves/animations I would like... :o

Maybe you can add a new stand animation or the look around animation... But you don't have to. Can you make a hand to hand move for Lara so she can attack without a weapon? :o

The sprint jump is slightly buggy, when I started looking for animations a while back I tested it and Lara sometimes did the jump even when you don't sprint. But I'll have to try again, and back my WAD up.
The crawlspace roll is already sorted, I added it with a patch with TREP, along with some other stuff, like ammo and flare count, climbable pushable blocks, and other stuff.
I also added a standing position. But I'm not so sure about hand-to-hand combat, I suppose I could replace the Pistols with the hand-to-hand fighting WAD on trsearch.

No, don't replace the pistols. We don't need hand to hand combat. When will it be released? :) Add those little dinosaurs too...;) Are going to add a T-Rex?

Okay, hand-to-hand looks kinda weird anyway. :D
Dinosaurs? Hm... How would they fit into the level?
I'm not entirely sure when it'll be released. Bugs are basically sorted, and I still need to put more enemies in. And maybe that extra level. I have a question, how do you make enemies attack Lara, they just run off and get stuck in a wall.

Dinosaurs... Well, they can be unleashed from some sort of magic portal... LOL! They still add lots of fun and tension though.

Lmao. :vlol: I've got another idea. Maybe the baddies could have a cage and they unleash dinos from them. :D Also, this level will NOT be easy, there'll be plenty to fight, when I learn how to give them actions like attacking.

Okay, I did some more screenies, and progress is going really good. So far I've added a little secret in the assault course, and I'm working on one now. I worked on the area behind the main gates and it's going nicely.
What's the OCB for an enemy to attack Lara? When I know, I can get some real work done on it. Anyway, here are the screenshots:

It looks rather nice actually. I hope you have/are adding loads of secret passageways :D

I would like to try it once you have finished, it looks good.

Don't worry, I'm putting LOTS, and I mean lots of secrets in. :D

Not sure but in the first shot on the slope it looks like there is a squashed and a strached texture;)

I believe there is. Is there any way to fix it?

Woah... Major bump. I just wanted to say this idea hasn't been forgotten, and I've begun work on it again. Problem is, I deleted the whole level, so it's totally from scratch. No idea when it'll be done, but hopefully I'll add some screenies soon. ;)

It looks like one of the first good TR1/2/3 manors remakes :jmp::jmp::jmp:
Who is thinking the same?:D

Jordan_Boi
17-07-08, 19:38
Thanks! Although it isn't exactly a remake... I just used a PRJ file and I'm working off it, but thanks all the same dude. :D

Slightly offtopic but where can i find that WAD?

Wickedly awesome level man!

I would recommend to use different textures;)
How long did it take to build this level?:) I'm curious because I am building a Lara's home level in early morning. (screenshot showcase)

Well, I didn't exactly build it myself, the design is this: http://trle.net/reviewsearch/search.php

Lemme just tell you all the story.

In 2008, Lara decides to return to her old mansion after a long expedition in India to stay for a few days. However, an old foe discovers her location and decides to pay her a little visit, with style. It seems this foe is after the Hand of Rathmore once again, and maybe a little more...

Play as Lara, running around the house in complete darkness, tons of baddies, pickups and secrets to find, then will Lara face her foe for the final time?

I'm thinking of including another level to add, maybe a VCI-type one.

Can you guess who Lara's foe is? :p

I'm guessing Miss. Cosmetics Agency. :p

So, will it be a straight out shooter, or also include some of the more classic jumping around and exploring as well?

Looks very good. I like any Croft Manor levels, even if it is a 1:1 Remake ;)

A mixture of both really, I'm hoping to let the player run around after they've killed everything, or they can do that at the same time. :p

I took some screenshots of the pool room, how is the lightning? Good/Bad.

The last picture is of the secret room, which 1. Hasn't been shadowed, and 2. It needs a trapdoor covering the entrance, as shown in the 5th screenshot.

Well, the room is way too shadowed for my liking, and those static objects really stick out in the darkness. :o If you're going to have darker areas, you should probably make them at least a little bit lighter so that it looks more realistic. :)

Thanks for the feedback. I still need to work on the statics, and I'm glad to hear I can adjust the lighting some more, it's fun. :p Thanks again, I appreciate it!
