Contasion 1 - Colony City is a free top-down 3D GTA clone I’ve been developing for quite some time. The game consists of over 60 vehicles, 14 weapons, and a fully functional multiplayer!
 
The game features a diverse city packed with action and things to do. WIth a multiplayer and a single player in Contasion, the amount of gameplay in the game is huge. In single player, you are faced with several tasks set by your best friend. Getting your best friend anything he wants, as he intimidates you over the phone. The tasks consist of collecting items, killing with weapons and vehicles & traveling, getting to know Colony City.

In the multiplayer, the primary spawnpoint in Contasion is the Colony City International Airport, but when you die, the spawnpoint will be altered depending on where you last died. There are certain areas within the city where you can obtain certain vehicles, in the average place you may just get the average sports car, but in other places, you can get heavy war vehicles, such as the Knack, ADF & S.A.M vehicles. In Contasion, you can increase your multiplayer rank by killing other online players, robbing local stores, looting coffins & more! The rank will give you the opportunity to alter what your multiplayer character will look like. The more kills you get in multiplayer, the higher your kill streak will be. Having a kill streak means you get more money, but committing suicide in the game will make you loose $100!

The online is one game mode - free mode. Giving the players a wider range of things to do, good or evil. It's almost impossible to behave in a city full of violence, and when other online players get violent, it's time to show them how you dominate the streets of Colony City. Dominating the streets or doing anything immoral on the streets will increase several of your stats. But stats do not only increase when you're bad, stats increase depending on how well you drive, how well you fire whatever weapon, how often you spend around the city running. Contasion provides endless fun for the players.

For multiplayer, I'll be hosting the server as much as possible. You can also host a server by clicking the "host server" option when you have the multiplayer options list on screen. I will be listening to criticism and updating the game as much as humanly possible, adding more features to make the world more intense. Please download the game and tell me what you think about it. If you have found a major bug, please message me, and I will try and solve the problem. The server ports are 7777 if you wish to host.
 
The game is free to download…
 
Last minute information (including controls) are in the ReadMe folder, or you can ask me for the controls in the server if you are planning to proceed to multiplayer   :)
If you want me to host and the server appears to be offline, just message me, I will happily host & play with you! :).
 
Server IP: 90.198.35.125
Ports required to forward if hosting: 7777.
 
Come along, try it out with me!
 
If you have a question or concern, throw me a PM! 
Suggestions and feedback is welcome! Cheers : - )

The driving feels really weird, and I noticed that when you reverse, the controls reverse too. Holding A while reversing will make the vehicle spin counter-clockwise when it should be doing the opposite.

Nicely programmed multiplayer, a fun experience to play especially with how well done the vehicles are. Definitely worth trying out!

 

Strengths:

- Online multiplayer

- Vehicle programming

- Gun selection, rockets, explosions, etc.

 

Areas to improve on:

- Vastly excessive use of profanity. Even if GTA does that (I haven't played GTA) that doesn't mean this game needs it. Honestly the incredible amount of profanity greatly detracts from the game experience

- Players move to slow

- Add more things to do! It was really fun as it was and adding more things will only make it better

Could you maybe continuously update the first post, when the server is up/down?

There is very little (if any noticeable) profanity in the game, but the removal of the billboard advertisements that kind of advertise that sort of stuff may be considered. Also, hold space to sprint. There is no special sprinting animation though yet.

The first post will ALWAYS be updated regarding the server status, both on the first topic post and on the homepage of my website. I will post statuses up when the server is online, too.

In my first day of high school I was talking to my friend regarding Game Maker and I needed a name for a new GTA type of game, so we thought of contagion, but removed the 'g' and replaced it with an 's'. So it is Contasion 1 - Colony City. My apologies for your -1. I was playing around with Inspect Element. I up-repped your most recent post to make up :).

 

__________________________________________________________

Contasion1ColonyCity12_zps7a94ba1d.png

Game was uploaded to YoYoGames, link in first post.

___________________________________________________________

Major (or considerably minor-ish) update available. MANY bug fixes in this version, most noticeable ones;

-Fixed not being able to see client bullet when you're in the backseat of a clients vehicle.

-Your position when in a client vehicle will always be identical to the driver position

-Airport runway altered

-Map added in pause screen (somewhat inaccurate, I'm working on it!)

-Multiplayer optimisation

-When a client enters a vehicle, the position of the client will automatically snap to the vehicle position

-Client rotating when he first enters a vehicle bug fixed

-Sniper rifle fully programmed with scope!

 

You will need to re-download this or you will not be able to join my multiplayer game!

Server will be online when I next post my status, or PM me if you want it online as soon as possible! :)

You can always host, 7777.

Pretty cool, nice to see such a good working multiplayer game being made with GM.

 

Things that I like:

- The world is really well designed

- EXPLOSIONS

- Some amount of character customization

- One of the better multiplayer games I've seen made in GM

- Has a lot of potential *if* you can get more people playing

- It seems that you are willing to keep working on this for long periods of time

 

Things I dislike/want changed:

- The framerate D:

- The collision in vehicles is just downright annoying, please add sliding

- The game contains a lot of bad language..

 

Suggestions (bold means I really suggest these)

- Again, sliding collisions

- Maybe slightly different bullet graphics for the different weapons

- Things that shoot bullets should add their own velocity to the bullets'

- More customization options!!

- Chat history

- Maybe avatars?

My apologies. It seems the sound that was trying to play may have not been loaded properly, since the sound is external.

 

Fixed in the version pending to be released! :).

Thanks for playing! It was fun with you and MartinD on the server!

 

Server still online!

Fionn released a video not so long ago on his channel and he has given away some of his graphics [tiles]. The majority of textures were taken from Google, and some made by myself.

 

 

- More customization options!!

 

 

You can get some deep player customization upon your rank, your rank will be altered depending on how much cash you have in total. The money needed for the ranks are displayed on the Contasion website. Also, in the next version I will be adding chat history! :).

 

-Server offline-

Huge update coming soon  :) .

Excellent from what ive seen, unfortunately the server was down so I could only play single player. Little bit of room for improvement on the graphics, but overall, it was well put together.

 

- Again, sliding collisions

The collision in vehicles is just downright annoying, please add sliding

 

Please do not do this!

this point is especially important if the game is supporting multiplayer, nothing would irritate me more than having some kid come flying along the road at 300mph only to crash into a wall and then SLIDE along the wall as if nothing had happened before plowing into my car.

 

This is like telling someone to rewrite their flight simulator so that the plane doesn't blow up when they hit the ground because it is annoying when you collide with the ground.

"Make the plane bounce when it hits the ground"

 

 

Shadows: Your shadows dont seem to be casting correctly, easiest way to explain would be too look at the screenshots with the umbrella and chairs, the shadow is not above the chair as it should be.

Thank you. The server hasn't been online recently, I'm sorry. I have been quite busy recently bug fixing this and finding ways to improve lag. However, you can message me and I'll have the server up to play with you as soon as humanly possible.

 

EDIT: About the graphics, some of them will be altered upon time.
