Security Cameras
« on: March 07, 2007, 08:48:47 AM »

Well, its been a while since somebody posted a suggestion, and I had this idea when I saw the security monitors at the place where I work.

The idea is to have some displays in security offices, and other places, like on the first map after the tram ride, at the silo in "Blast Pit". and other places, wich would be under survillance in a hidden research facility.

On the screens you could see what the camera sees, maybe have some scripted events happening but thats not really important. And of course, place some camera models on the maps.

Is it possible to make this kind of thing or is it beyound the limits of the goldsource engine?
Or the idea itself is stupid and not Half-Life-ish?

Uhhh, I didnt mean security cameras, that raise an alarm or something.
Just some security cameras and computer screens, in wich you could see, other parts of the maps, like in "Unforeseen Circumstances" you go to the front desk at the entrance, and on a computer screen you could see later reachable hallway, with the roaming zombies.

Sounds like a good idea. It's possible, Blue Shift had security cameras.

I don't think Black Mesa has securety bots or even the fabled "Security" bots in its facility. :P
