View Full Version : History of Mankind: ALASKA IS BACK!!



Marino
10-05-2008, 05:49 PM
In early August, a user by the name of Alaska_Gamer had the brilliant idea (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=350) of making a series of levels depicting the history of mankind, from the Stone Age onward, with each level being a different time period. Many Sacks were immediately in love with the idea, and 2 weeks later there were already 10 pages, which was pretty long WAY back then. ;)

ALASKA IS BACK AND KICKING! :arg:

Not wanting for this project to die, one brave Pirate Moderator decided to bring Alaska_Gamer's dear project back to life.

And here are now: two months later, and with a beta in (most) our hands.

Who's still interested? I will start assigning time periods once I get a grasp of who still wants in. :arg:

Time periods that need to be covered:

Marino

I just finished the cave puzzle, you have to stamp down a cave painting for explosives to go off and let you exit the cave.

Anyone know how to make it so when you trigger a switch it turns an object on fire? Aka: The Invention of fire? :)

Maltay
10-05-2008, 08:36 PM
I call stone age.

EDIT: Wait have you finisehd stonge age?

ANOTHER EDIT: Hmm, I dont thing you can trigger fire. You could trigger an emitter to emit a firey object though, that could work (Maybe dissolve the old one)

ANOTHER OTHER EDIT: Seen as how stone age is done, I call Viking era.

Marino
10-05-2008, 08:37 PM
Aw, you already called it? Ok. Want my beginning cave + empty Savannah template to use? :)


I'll think of another era to do. Sorry. :p

EDIT: It's not done. I just made the beginning cave where you start. I'll gladly do the Ice Age if you want to do the Stone Age. :)

EDIT^2: So you want to do the Viking Age? Alright. I got Stone Age & Ice Age for now. :arg:

Serioudly? I want you to do the Ancient greek period, with zues and everything :D
Edit: So we're all doing a whole level each instead of part of a single level?

Marino
10-05-2008, 10:15 PM
Yep. Each era is it's own level. We can link the levels together with keys. :)

Yeah Rock, I'm pretty sure Darkelite would want medieval. You do Ancient Greece, mkay? :arg:

Marino

Yep, it's all yours. :)

EDIT: Wait. I thought you WERE DarkGod. Nevermind, LOL. :eek:

First lets see if DarkGod wants it first, and if he doesn't, then you could have it.

What is an alternative? :confused:

Sorry again. :o

Alright, so do you want both Ancient Greece or the Medieval Times? Or just the Medieval Times?

RockSauron

Alright, so do you want both Ancient Greece or the Medieval Times? Or just the Medieval Times?

I'd prefer medieval times.

Then again, I don't really have much ideas for either... hm... I just want medieval because of the theme.

Um... I would be able to screw up history, right, and add dragons? Maybe I'll just do a feud between two rival lords... Anyway, I'll do Medieval because I prefer that more, and Darkgod would want Greek more then me.

Although the historian aspect of me thinks that history can't be divided into single chapters until recently when the world became "smaller" with mass communications, but meh, I guess our history will be the one from the history books, aka white man's history.

Marino

Yes! Get chopping! What are you waiting for?? GO!

Haha, of course you don't. However, if you would like to save your progress you made before the beta closes and work at launch, just publish your level and copy it to a crater. :)

Very interesting. Greece sounds right up my Alley so I'll happily put a lot of hours into that if it's still available.

Is this project for the beta or is it for when the game is properly released? If it's the former then I won't have the time to do it but if it's the latter I'll be able to cook up something special I hope. ^_^

EDIT: I just noticed someone else called dibs on Greece. :(

But I really like this project. Would it be possible to incorporate a modern day level? Or maybe even a futuristic level? :O

Alright, you have Ancient Greece. :)


Do we have to do anything specific like incorporate a story or something?

Just try to sum up, to the best of your ability, the time zone you are assigned to. To get you thinking: if this time zone somehow never happened, what would be different today? What would we not have? Inventions? Advancements in sciences? Mythology / Religion? Technology? Customs?

What was everday like for an average citizen? For the leader?

If you want to be really creative you can come up with a story line or plot, but you don't have to. Try to make the levels look like you are really in the time period.

I hope that helps a bit, this project is up to creativity, as long as you don't stray away from that time period.

Dave, or chiropractor, has asked me if he can incorporate Zeus into his Greece level. And you know what? Yes, he can. If mythology is very important to your time period or culture, go ahead and make gods/godesses/dragons, whatever, as long as it pertains to the culture/mythology. People were very ignorant in the ancient times, so yes, I can imagine thinking that their gods are real! Put yourself into the shoes of a citizen and try to make what they would see, like I stated previously. :)

Sorry man, Dave took Greece. And yes, this DEFINITELY doesn't die with the end of the beta, it is on-going. When you are done just name your level something like "History of Mankind: The name of your time period". No deadlines, just update us with your progress so I know who is involved. :arg:

Also, about your future idea. Hm, I'll have to think about it. It wouldn't be accurate as we don't know what is coming yet, but what do you have in mind? ATM, you can make a level of any time period... EVER. You could even do the events of the 2000s so far if you really want to. :)

Look at the list in the OP & pick a time period that sounds interesting to you. This is one strange planet, a lot of interesting things have happened! :p

Oh, didn't see someone else (your IRL friend, I suppose Marino) called Greece after me; I was on school when I wasn't supposed to, so I was quick.

Anyway, I pretty much have my Medieval plan already down. Start off in a serf's village, complete with waterwheels, then you invade a castle and the end of the level is the top tower. Yep. Oh, and arrows firing down on you, and knight enemies in the castle portion but just platforming in the field and village portion.

It would be cool if you could simluate a player actualy carcving/chipping a stone into a trianglular shape, and then use that as a weapon in a hunt/bossbattle

10-06-2008, 09:19 PM
I have a few questions... Do we need to make it like a full level or can it be more of a story...Of course i plan for mine to have many interactions and good playable moments but i think that if we tried to make them complete actual "levels" that we might convulute the history.

Also, I plan to incorporate some Roman history in their as well...Any good ideas for either...So far i plan to include. The labyrinth with the minotaur. The Acropolis Of Athens with Parthenon, a greek theatre/a philosophical sack-rates (socrates... an ancient greek philosopher in sack form) The battle of Thermopayle, A battle with Zeus god of thunder. possibly a boat ride across the mediterranean. A walk alond a roman aquaduct into the colleseum. Watching a galdiator fight. Then the escape from the dungenons below the colleseum. Then the murder of Julius ceaser and then finally the fall of rome.

i know thats a lot but are there anything that i am really missing or that you think i should cut out. Also, small design aspects that you think would be cool would be appreciated.

this i dear is great cant wait till i get to see the levels after there made.

Marino
10-06-2008, 09:38 PM
Dave, yeah, you can have a story. In my Stone Age level I am making a story subconciously (I didn't even know I was doing it)! For example, you start in a cave, get out, a storm is happening, hitting a tree thus starting a fire, thus you find about fire. So next the Cavesack will be making fire himself, and possibly killing a Bison and bringing the meat back to cook? Wow. I just thought of that while typing. :) That can be achieved by putting a magnetic key on the piece of meat & the magnetic key switch near the fire. :arg:

Maltay, about your stone carving idea: any idea how I would make that? Maybe there are a bunch of stones lying on the ground and the player has to somehow throw it at the Bison? How would I make the Sack throw a spear? So many ideas. :p

well, MAYBE you can have a sackboy thing in the background that emits a spear or something, and you press a switch to make it throw the spear, and the spear could destroy the bison somehow (not sure how).

BTW, did your internet connection go weird at the end of that just now or was it just me?

Marino
10-06-2008, 09:45 PM
Nope, it wasn't my internet connection. LBP froze. It does that all the time, **** bugs. :(

Yeah, I think I will try that emitter idea. Sounds like the best way to go about it. OR: I can have it so when Sackboy picks up an object, he looks like he is throwing spears because the emitter is on the object he is picking up? He could always move his arm around for added effect. :p

Sackboyfan, do you mean the Space Age? With the moon landing and planting a flag?

10-06-2008, 09:54 PM
john i think you would need to use an emitter, either from a sackboy cut out or just behind you that shoots spears right at the brain of the bison and hopefully destorying it. Although i dont know if it can work. I think a little tinkering is needed.

RockSauron
10-06-2008, 10:01 PM
Hm, so we'd have a custom name for this for them all to be identified, right?

Like "LBPC Forums Presents: History of Mankind: Medieval Edition"? Or is that too long, but anyway, we'd have a name for this?

and we'd have a key at the end of each level right, to open the next piece of time?

Maltay
10-06-2008, 10:01 PM
i know thats a lot but are there anything that i am really missing or that you think i should cut out. Also, small design aspects that you think would be cool would be appreciated.

Think you should include the first olympics... Maybe a chariot race or something.


Maltay, about your stone carving idea: any idea how I would make that? Maybe there are a bunch of stones lying on the ground and the player has to somehow throw it at the Bison? How would I make the Sack throw a spear? So many ideas. :p

I was thinking more of, lots of dossolve materials pieced together with a flint inside, they dissolve 1 by 1 wehn you jump on them, or hit them with something...

As for the battle, maybe have the 'Bison' jump up at (seemingly?) irregular intervals, and you have to ime it right to kill it (running the spear/flint into the heart of the creature). Thats what i'd do anyway, but its your level man.

Marino
10-06-2008, 10:02 PM
Sure mutt, I'll add you to the list. :)

And Dave, yeah, that's what I was thinking. I hope it works. I'll try it after I finish my homework. :( :arg:

Rock, yeah, it would be like:

"History of Man (Sack?)-kind: The Stone Age" with the Official LBPC Emblem when we get one, that way people from the forums would know that we made it. :)

And Maltay, I'll try that, but I'm not sure I'm advanced enough with the tools to make that yet. :(

Oh, that's cool. I thought we were excluded to the periods you listed. In which case, can I do the Edo Period of Japan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edo_period)? I have lots of interesting ideas and I'm sure it'll be quite different from the other periods.

i dont wanna do it cause i already have plenty on my plate between this and other products but i think doing a segment on the space race specificaly would be very worth while. It was a great time of exploration, development and the pushing of human kind's ingenuity. Plus Almost everyone has tinkered with a rocket ship and i think making a moon landing wouldn't be too hard.

I even have thoughts on a landing gear system that i could give to someone if they choose this. (if this is even approved.) :)

no i disagree because since we have many different people doing each project...It gives us all a chance to do our best work and not worrying about doing all of it by ourselves.

Yep, I'm back, and I'm gonna be trying pretty hard to be here on a normal routine. School can sure be a pain.

Ah, who cares, great to see you all again. I didn't get access to the beta, so you know, but you can expect to see help in creating this level(s) from me once after launch of the full game. :)

Hey, I see Marino got through to your PSN. At least... I'm assuming that was how. :0

Anyway, *rubs chin* intriguing... Um... yeah.

EDIT: anyway, about the reserved things:

Reserved Time Periods:
Stone Age - Marino
Ice Age - aer0blue & Sackgirl
Viking Age - Maltay
Medieval Times - RockSauron
Renaissance - Code
Ancient Greece - chiropractor345
Industrial Revolution - dobilay
Recession of the 1930s / Great Depression - muttjones
Edo Period of Japan - Chaz'oSulls
Post-Modern Era - illyism

Shouldn't it be more like

Reserved Time Periods:

Personally, I believe it should.

Nope. He just spawned! :arg:

What have you been planning since you left Alaska, anything? What era would you like to work on? Want the thread back? Ah, so many questions! :arg:

Yeah, it should be like that. Thanks. Mind relinking for me? :3

Um....:confused:

Actually I only remembered about my idea and everything about it once I saw this thread. Hit me like a brick.

I'll need to think about it. I'll probably help as supervisor for the most part, but I'll pitch in with some creation of my own. I'll think about what I'll do.

EDIT: I GOT IT!!!

I looked back through the different events in history, and while I pretty much know the two world wars to death, I thought I'd do something based around the Cold War.

Yeah, that's what I'll do.

Ok. I'm just glad you are back. :arg:

Perfect, thanks. :)

Alaska wants to do the Cold War. Is it OK if he does that? He started the project and all.... :p

LOL, it SHOULD be okay.

10-11-2008, 11:25 PM
i think a cold war segment would be pretty cool.

Basically you could just have lots of Nuclear Missles pointed at eachother with russian and american flags :p be careful.

Marino
10-11-2008, 11:27 PM
Yeah. A lot of tension back then. And then you can include the Berlin Airlift and you can break the Berlin Wall down! :arg:

Alaska_Gamer
10-11-2008, 11:28 PM
LOL, sure thing. Maybe I'll add cut-outs of their respective leaders, too.

Marino
10-11-2008, 11:30 PM
It is too bad that Russia still resents the US with the new Georgia conflict and everything.. a new Cold War? I sure hope not. :(

So, Alaska, do you have anything in mind of what we should do while the beta is out? It expires tomorrow at 7, so we will have 9 days of being LBP-less. Maybe we can plan using iScribble? :arg:

dobilay
10-12-2008, 02:15 AM
If anyone is seriously into this I reccomend getting a dry erase board. I happen to have one and it's been really useful for designing levels, similar to the actual reason I bought it actually.

Not familiar with iScribble or something. And I cant check my email because of my dead computer, so, I can pretty much talk through PM or PSN.

10-12-2008, 02:20 AM
that is a good idea. i am a fan of sitting in school and just not paying attention, drawing out levels and writing down key words or desings for my levels.

If anyone asks what you are doing you just say "i am creating a world far beyond your mortal comprehension." that usually deters any more questons :)

RockSauron
10-12-2008, 02:22 AM
iscribble is a drawing/chat room that we have...

www.iscribble.net

Yeah, I'm on it now. With Code. And my best pal, stupidity.

YAY CRAZYNESS!

>_>

Back on topic... Hm, I know I'll have a key sticker to open the treasure room...

I wanna do one, but i do't have beta D':

But if we can do this when he game is released, then I would like to do the Romans, or the Greeks. I could also do dinosaurs if you want me too.

oh yes! dry erase boards are awesome, (I use them for my strategic planning of warfare on my other games)

OHOHOH!!! Old Kingdom (Egypt, 3000 BC - 2000 BC) would be AMAZING! I'd love to help out :p

doing ancient egypt is a great idea. I also think maybe doing a little more on the chineese would be helpful, seeing as how they were one of the most advanced cultures ever. And probably the oldest current one.

illyism, just to let you know, i am doing the ancient greece time period. BUt i also bridge the gap into rome a little bit. I am not doing much so i dont think there will be a problem but i just wanted to let you know.

Hope this isn't a major problem with you.

illyism
10-19-2008, 10:01 AM
that wouldn't be a problem, perhaps I could continue Rome from where you finished your level?

btw, time to watch BBC's Ancient rome documentary. lawl. 6 hours...

I would love to help out but i dont think i would be able to do a level by myself. I can contribute to one though :)

As i'm currently at school i would only have 1-2 hours a day to help but would really love to play a part in this project. If anyone wants me on there level team please add me :D

I don't have anyone listed as Ancient Rome. Before I give it to you, has anyone else called it before? Sorry; I haven't the greatest memory. :arg:

Wow! I just noticed this now... and read all the posts lol they're great ideas!! and you guys were right earlier in this thread I would have taken the Ancient Greece era... but that's ok, I should have seen this before right? :p I've been way to busy with LBP! :D ;)

i am already working on the ancient greece level.. I am just going to touch on ancient rome, but i wont do anything major. So you can do that, unless someone did call it earlier.
