Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach HRP (VacaHRP)
Yes, this is one of the surprises I had in my sig.

Quote:
Stay tuned for a surprise (or two)… from me?!
I hinted at it once, but no one noticed. Anyway…

I have decided to begin the missing add-on HRP in the bunch, the:

Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach HRP

Considered the best TC by many (I consider it a tie with NW. *shot*), it most certainly deserves its own HRP. Therefore, the VacaHRP (as I will abbreviate it) has been born.

I do know that there was a .zip floating around which had UnDEF code, a copies.def equivalent, some skyboxes, and one sand texture. The only information I could find about the creator of it was that his nickname was “noctrun”. I will consider that one v0.5.

The first true version of the VacaHRP will include all of the content of v0.5, a conversion of the deprecated code to the new code, plus one or two extra submissions if there are any.

Alright, team! Let's get to work on this one!

Post Script: I think this warrants a Duke4.net\Duke4Ever.net news story. It isn't my call, though.

Nice, looking forward to the pigcop

I tried once to make a high-res texture but it didn't work out too well, so I can't help you out with this one Good luck in any case.

I think this is what you wanted. Also, if anyone else thinks something is worthy of a newsmessage at D4E feel free to terrorize me through PM until I replied.

Way to go Hendricks! I was wondering if my post about "life's a beach" would prompt a dev to:

A: Consider an HRP for DN3D:LAB, or...

B: Post already-thought-of plans to do an HRP for DN3D:LAB

now to get a copy

On the second level there is a massive secret area part near the begining, this secret area has a whole dock sort of thing with a boat and other stuff. Around this secret area there is a point where you can go inside a shop selling some fruits and veg. Jump ontop one of them crates with the veg in it (I think its the red stuff, probley apples) and you'll fall through it an land in the sewers. Needless to say the green secret Nuke is down there.

Thanks. I am going to make my own in the same format as the NWHRP one. I will use your list as a basis (along with undef.def), but it will be a bit neater (no offense, you did a good job). I will also expand it greatly and give more details on the TILES014.ART and TILES015.ART art (most of it).

well that would be me, nice to see this, finally, getting off the ground as I completely agree with you: vacation needs hrp support, which is why I did the old one, but university didn't allow me to continue work on it

btw the zip is still at here though you must follow the link on that page as you can't directly access it in the file at the subdir (files/vacation_hrp.zip), as lycos is a really crappy place to host your stuff

Re: Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach HRP (VacaHRP)
The announcement of this actually being in existence was one of the surprises. As for the status of the pack, I have a few tiles already, and the last added thing was the 3D Realms screen replacement. I could release v1.0 as it is now, but I wanted to accomplish a certain something at least partially (with the NWHRP too) before I do. I'm also working on other surprises.

The last work that I've done was playing through the pack again to see if there is anything that needs to be done. The first thing that comes to mind is that a few tiles have alternate palettes that either don't show up well or at all. For the best example of this, go to Mr. Splashy's, and compare the 8-Bit red font, the chairs, and some of the wall tiles that are everywhere. I suppose that the font could be fixed by importing the DukeDC green font as pals 6 and 8, but that should really be done in the normal HRP. The same thing should happen for the NW white font, but for pal 24. Examine the original 8-Bit red font tiles in Build/Mapster32 with those palettes mentioned above.

There are also a few things that really stood out to me that I really wouldn't be any good doing.
  • A new red font, in the style of the NW and DC HRP red fonts. I am undecided if it should be sky blue or bright orange.
  • A new skin for the beach chairs scattered around without the “Eddy Wood” text on the back. Also, some alternate palettes for it (10-23 are the ones needed).

Which pallets are 10-23? I've done red, blue, green, yellow and even a black one for the chair skin.

Re: Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach HRP (VacaHRP)
Here are the others for the various pallets. I've included a light blue. I thought that could be set for 'Standard' blue (this is the Caribbean!) and for pallet 16 you could use the standard tile. I sent Hendricks266 the regular blue without the name to his email earlier.

I would still love to see some with "Bob Marley" or even "Prince Buster" on them.

P.S. Thanks Hunter_rus!

Re: Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach HRP (VacaHRP)
Wow, Tea Monster! I can't thank you enough, as that really stood out at me as I played through the game.

There is one thing that I still need: a dark blue. The original skin is not dark enough to use as pal 16.

Also, I am not going to edit the 8-Bit art, but I am going to use the corresponding files for the palettes:

0 - 0680ltblue.png
10 - 0680dkred.png
11 - 0680green.png
12 - 0680gray.png
13 - 0680black.png
14 - 0680dkgreen.png
15 - 0680brown.png
16 - 0680navy.png
18 - 0680gray.png
21 - 0680red.png
22 - 0680green.png
23 - 0680yellow.png
30 - 0680midblue.png - The original color.
31 - 0680.png - This is the original color with “Eddy Wood” on it.

Palettes 30 and 31 are only for user-mappers if they want the original color, as there is no change if you apply them in 8-Bit.

I seem to be in a "can't stick with something" spiral and so have been hoping on and off gaming projects trying to find one I can stick to.
Basically everything I ever get interested in ends up uncompleted.

The latest thing I came from was Carmageddon II - I made a new car, got it to work, went to start my second one but lost all enthusiasmn for Carmageddon and moved onto something else for a while.



In short, I want to have a go at making something for Duke (again )
Is there a new Carib to do list anywhere or can I assume that the latest one uploaded is practicaly up to date?
Well anyway, I'm going to give Tile #3765 ago, the Flower Chain which appears nearly everywhere on the market.
