Tornado Chasing Comes to GMod

tornadochaseI’m sure that many of you are familiar with the Facepunch forums, especially those of you that are HL2 fanatics of different shapes and sizes. Like most forums, it’s full of its own amount of useless drivel, but occasionally, you’ll find a truly precious gem in its hallowed annals.

This particular gem is gm_tornadochase, a new GMod map being built by user monkeyjoe_, who has had real life experience chasing tornadoes. Yes, the premise is exactly what it sounds like. There is a big freaking tornado on the map, complete with realistic physics and swirling debris, and your job is survive by building structures. Also, you can release research probes up into the vortex to gather data for the stormchaser team.

To me, this is one of the most creative things I’ve ever seen out of a gaming community, and I wanted to share it here. It’s not quite finished, but apparently it’s getting there. There are lots of pictures and even some video demonstrations available in the thread. What do you guys think? Is this bad ass or what?

  1. That’s incredible. I’ve always been astounded by the creativity of the GMod modders. There’s even a map that has waves – impressive considering the way source handles water.

  2. I doubt Gmod would work on consoles, unless it was like the Far Cry 2 one. Even that’s pushing it, though.

  3. The many. The proud. The GModders.

    This is one of the coolest mods I’ve seen. It’s basically Stormchasers from Discovery Channel, but way cooler.

  4. I guess I’ll have to just be an echo in here, but this is one of the coolest modded creations I have ever even heard of.
