I've begun creating FPS games. For those of you who don't know what a FPS (on these forums I find that unlikely), a FPS is a First Person Shooter. Examples of a FPS are things like Call of Duty, Halo, and the Battlefield series. Personally, I view this category of games as the hardest to create, due to the texturing, modelling, and coding skills required. I like a challenge, so I decided to give it a shot. After creating a couple of levels, I began modelling and texturing, and ended up with a far more fast variety of objects for my game, so I scraped my original idea for my game. Now, with my variety of objects, I'm at a loss for ideas. This is where you come in. I need you guys to help me think of ideas! Here is a template of what I'm looking for (you don't have to use the template as long as you give some of the information).

Template for IDEAS:

Setting: Where does the game take place?
Date: When are these events occuring?
Possible Storyline*: Pretty straightforward
Mood/Atmosphere: Dark? Bright? Creepy? Joyful? (OK, maybe not joyful..)
(*= Storyline will not be a big part in my game, there may not even be one)

Now, having an idea is good an all, but once that idea is turned into a single level, or even a game, all it is, is something I've made. What I'd like it to become, is something you've played. Each level I create will be uploaded to mediafire (or somewhere else if necessary). After 3 levels, I will then put those three levels together into one executable file, as a "bulk download". This way, instead of finishing a level, closing the game, and then running the new level manually, the will run right after another like most games. The single files themselves will still be available. The reason I do singular level downloads, is due to the size. Each level will most likely be over 100mb in size.

Now, in any industry where you want people to try your creations, you need some samples. Whether it be a brand new pop artist, or a new book, you need something to show people what you are made of. So, I will post the original 2 levels of my game. Note that these 2 levels are from when I first got the program, and had no extra models, and no experience, so you can expect to see some more detail and higher quality coming with the new levels.

This post will contain updates to levels (which will be very uncommon), new levels, and changelogs. I may also include substantial changes to my program, like getting substantial new models and such. Anyway, I had enough text in my first post so lets get to the good stuff.

Levels Downloads:

Escape Series: This is a 3 part series, which is unfinished, and will remain that way.

Escape Part 1: This is part 1, my first ever attempt at making a FPS.
The archive is 65mb in size.

Escape Part 2: The second part of my Escape series. The archive is 70mb.

Escape Part 3: The early end of my Escape series...I had many new models when I made this, so it may seem very different. Archive size is 196mb.

Project Canada Level 1: The first level of my new game, Project Canada. This level is a tutorial, but still worth playing!

Project Canada Level 2: The second level of my new game, Project Canada. This is your first mission.

Updates:
Project Canada Level 1 has been updated. - Oct.9

Changelog:
PC-L1: Fixed obstacle room glitch.

Thank you once again for your time, tell me if you try any of these levels!

I'll see what I can do, I'll just look over my models and see how well i could implement your ideas.

Please, do try the "samples".

That, my friend, is a very nice idea.. Luckily for me, I finished my outdoor model pack last night...
Consider "Project Canada" underway.

Just tried the first part. Good so far, but it needs more atmosphere and it needs to be brighter (literally, its really hard to see).
EDIT: Awesome. Thanks for using my idea!

Haha, no problem. I felt your idea had the most potential, and it will give me a chance to make outdoor levels for the first time.
Thanks for the critiscm, like I said, it was my first attempt.. I'm a little curious though, because I felt it was too bright... Perhaps its just screen settings... I'll try it again and see, but don't expect any updates for my old series. The atmosphere issue I do understand, thats what made me get into modelling and texturing, it allows me to add more variety!

I'll start posting screeshots and things once the project is started.

This game you made is amazing, it feels like Dementium. Anyways, I've ran into a couple of problems, and I don't feel like I'm doing my job if I don't report it.

Bugs
- I would get stuck in certain areas, it would slow my walking speed until I was stood still
- Some areas would slow me down, but not stop me
- After dieing at one point, I came back to life and my gun was slightly off the screen, and everything was sort of choppy, almost as if a resolution change has occurred.

Other than that, it feels great. Look forward to a finished version. I also got two screen shots of the areas I got stuck in.

Well, that's not good.. The only report I've got of this (other then yours) is on Windows 7 laptop... Hmm, very weird.
For those of you that HAVe tested my game, and it worked, could you post your specs for comparison?
