Save the Cheerleader save the world? Looking fantastic, hoping to have the net back by february, Massive hiatus for me. Hoping to get hold of a copy of the latest sdk soon so i will be making some prefabs to relearn everything. Loving the lighting you have going and teh outdoors looks sick, hope you guys are all just swell
The outside of that map looks so darn nice. The cabin area could do with some dividing walls and a few more details but im assuming you probably have that in mind already. Curious as to how you got your hills and things looking so nice and natural, was it using a certain noise pattern or grid shape?
I always make the mistake of not using correct multiples of my grid which is extremely annoying when your searching for a leak and your pointmaps wont load. Tried getting on my sdk last night, basically all of my steam files are denying me access without and internet connection.
For this map I just took the less efficient but easy approach of creating a big grid of square displacements. Then i just morphed a play area out of that and dropped in some additional displacements for cliffs that didn't really need to be sewn to the main grid.
Thats how i usually would but how would you do it if the map isnt square? for instance if your map basically has corridors and paths and strange thing that usually wont work into the grid format? Do you just work it through multiples of yoru grid size or is there another way?
If you just looked at the map from above it basically is a square. But I defined the play area using props/player clip/cliff displacements so that it doesn't really appear to be square from the players POV. It's kind of an amateur-ish way to do it, but hey, I'm an amateur
Bloody good map. Loving the outdoors woodland area. Barn could do with some windows vamp can enter so its not so much of a bottle neck for campers and outdoors could do with a few roofed things for cover when running between buildings. Loving the interiors, the dust motes you used work fantastic and the cellar lighting is superb and creepy
