  • Student Who Creates FPS Map From High School Plans Gets Arrested

    Only in Texas? Or is that only in America.

    Remember guys, don't use familiar surroundings when making maps for your violent killing simulations.

    It'll get you expelled from school. Or worse, thrown in the slam.

    That reminds me of my HS days, when Doom was the game. Some friends and I tried to map out our HS as a multiplayer level, but the limitations of the Doom engine and our own inability to create good textures pretty much kiboshed any progress in that direction.

    Principles of good Sandbox Etiquette:
    Assume good faith - Be polite, please! - Work toward agreement. - Argue facts, not personalities. - Concede a point when you have no response to it, or admit when you disagree based on intuition or taste. - Be civil. - Be prepared to apologize. In animated discussions, we often say things we later wish we hadn't. Say so. - Forgive and forget. - Recognize your own biases and keep them in check. - Give praise when due.

    Treat others as you would have them treat you

      I made a map of my university in sof2. I never even considered getting in trouble for it.

        Hmm, I wonder if the fact that he's Chinese had anything to do with it.

          Sheesh. When I used to create DOOM/DOOM2 and Quake/Quake2/Quake3 levels, I often used real places for insipiration, including my university. I guess it's a wonder that I didn't go on a rampage with my plasma rifle and shoot up some of the lecture halls.

          If Dennis Fong was playing ten years ago in a culture like we have now, I wonder if he'd have been institutionalized.

            Hmm... at one time I planned on making a map for BF2 which replicated my work campus. I guess I should remove the building plans and photos I have collected on my work and home computers before I get busted. ;)

              It's a lovely state of affairs in this country when committing no crime will get you arrested.

                Phew, glad I don't make maps. I don't want the police to take my hammer.

                Unless he made the map while at school, I don't think the school can expell. Assuming it's a public school and no threats were made.

                  It's OK, he won't need a high-school diploma after the district settles the lawsuit.

                      I'm sure if we look hard enough, he'll be guilty of something. Maybe he's a witch or a communist?

                          That's just down the road from me, I better turn down the volume on my comp. Or they may issue a no-knock warrant and shoot my a**.

                            Unfortunately, I was really intending to make a PR map of my school. I guess I can't do that anymore, since freedom of speech is invalidated.

                            I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~

                              Wow. I used to do this with doom and quake back in my school days. I had a bunch of maps of my school, my neighborhood, all kinds of real places. They woulda locked me up and thrown away the key I bet.
                              From the restriction of basic freedoms comes the spread of paranoia.
                              Take away free expression and you're going to get a bunch of people that are paranoid about this kind of thing. Oh, wait, too late for that.

                              Hell, if you take it back 20 years, I bet the guy who wrote the script for Red Dawn would have been accused of aiding terrorism had it happened these days.
