GorgeCraft is a mod designed for players to build and construct to their hearts content. The aim is to give as much freedom as possible to the players for building, letting their imaginations do the rest. It takes the Alien builder class from the game Natural Selection 2, and gives it a whole new lease of life, freed from the ravages of battling pesky Marines. It's a little known fact that the kharaa aliens are completely different races, absorbed by the bacterium in it's quest to grow. Back on their peace-loving homeworld, Gorges love to spend all their time building, playing sports and sliding around on their bellies. It is their calling. GorgeCraft gives you an opportunity to experience Gorges operating in their natural habitat...GorgeCraft General Notes:Gameplay:
Gorges can construct all 13 Alien buildings and also 2 crate props, making a total of 15 items, spread over 3 build menus. There are 2 maps, gc_flatland and gc_pits. Players can work together or alone to build great Gorge Art.
Build Menu Order:
1.1 - Cyst 1.2 - Hydra 1.3 - Clog 1.4 - Crag 1.5 - Shade

3.1 - Whip 3.2 - Spur 3.3 - Shift 3.4 - Crate 3.5 - BoxMaps:gc_pitsgc_flatland
Mod is customised to GCGamerules, no longer works with default ns2_ maps. Mapping:
DO NOT OPEN THE MAPS IN THE EDITOR UNLESS YOU HAVE CREATED A 'GAME' MOD IN LAUNCHPAD THAT IS POINTING TO A COPY OF THE MOD FILES, IS RUNNING THE MOD, AND YOU OPEN THE EDITOR FROM LAUNCHPAD!!
This has to be stressed purely because opening the map to have a look without doing this, will cause the gc_gamerules entity to disappear. Any save will mean the map will just cause your game to crash when you launch the mod.
Creating a map for GorgeCraft is very easy. All you need is a single TechPoint entity set to Team 2, and a GCGamerules entity, plus space for the players to build. Please use the GCgamerules entity, there is also a GCFGamerules entity in the editor, but this will currently do nothing.
Customised versions of NS2 maps can be very easily made, by opening in you GorgeCraft Mod editor and adding a GCGamerules. Be aware the ns2 maps are very big and can get very overloaded with entities. A little bit more:
There are big plans afoot!!
