  1. Coffee, accepted morgages, and a new life challenge. Oh yea, and an unfinnished SP mod I need to finnish 😉

  2. i am sorry I havent been able to spend some time on this. However, good reasoning. Bought a house in RL, marketprices in the Netherlands are a bitch btw, and its an overheated market, easily 400.000 euro's for a house. However, we got a lucky break after viewing 29 houses and place a bid on 13 of them. As some of you know, I have 2 kids, which already give me trouble finding time to do something with this project. Just to top this off, number 3 will be arriving somewhere half January. Work in RL is a bitch sadly too, punching a lot of overtime, but also with good prospects, since I will be promoted to a management position within the company I work for now coming November. Means litterly that my workload is being reduced. So I may actually find this time some time to start the scripting phase and wrap up designing phase. Also need good tutorials on how to start of modelling
  3. Always welcome. I need to learn myself to spend time in blender / 3d max to get myself models made for it.
  4. I remoddelled some of the side of the map, so i could seal it, but realized I have to play also with the environment, so i decided to see if i could "sculp" out of brushes a cave entrance i d say i dont think a model could do better of this inregular, not symetric, skewed cave entrance. As above picture and below picture also dictate, i covered up the edges of the map with rock, so it looks actually enclosed as well, rather than stopped somewhere lose if you are standing in the map itself, give it a sense of an squared of open area. When i get this part done, i ll probably add another cave somewhere in the map for maybe a sub objective, i dont know yet (its SP after all) I need to figure out a way to see if i can create some highres better images for this, cause i want it more vibrant. Also i need to dive again in some 3d modelling program to see if i can create plant models, trees, etc for the map to start filling it up.
  5. since you re gonna do scripting, may i suggest your extraction is a random positioned prissoner, to make things more interesting (meaning different routes etc) target random to more than 1 spawner. And script accordingly objectives (so prisoner is randomly placed in different cells so different actions or switches have to be triggered.)
  6. Okay, I been tweaking this thing for the last month, and started with repairing the entities, which were half broken all of the sudden, thus i removed all of non essential entities for now and do the lay out first before i am going to add the scripts and entities. Also revised a part of the map where the end fight will be and started laying that out. Also decided i needed to make an entree point so i started working on that area too, but due to the fact i have been busy with work, hospital visits and i need to be administered soon for a kidney stone that has to be removed and also other interests, things go slow. I started also to play with the shaders a bit, especially the sprites i wanna work with, so that patches of grass will be filled in with sprites, etc.
  7. Mapping again, working on terrain fillers.

  8. I would be interested in such thing as well. I cant find any good tutorials on making roff files. Would also be an asset to JKHUB in common
  9. So wait, is this a single player thing? Or is it MP? (nvr mind, you awnsered it up there) And i would pan the camera a bit, moving it arround the target... I did something simular with a tie fighter scene flying over. You can move the camera focussed on one point. Also, you can smooth those rotations even more.. you rotate it 2 times (first 90 and then another 90, pull those together for a longer smooth turn...
  10. Triggeable light entities for him is another trick. He could use the light connecting to a null to create spot light idea from his ceiling light. I agree that switchable is tricky, because shadered lights are only processed within build phase and not on the fly in game. This is why dynamic lightning is a pain.
  11. I used a small nodraw indeed (its a fly over object) and it does the trick indeed fine, it solved my issue
  12. I ll check it out. It has always worked anyway, until yesterday, havent touched it really, elsei ll try to remake it.
  13. So I have been working today on my map and i am trying to figure out where the error in the title comes from, since i cant fire up the map anymore. I just added brushes. I went through the whole map, removed all func_groups again from the list and it left me with just about 40 entities. Still same error. Copied the map over to a different map, renamed, recompiled, same. The compile stage gives no error, so i am a bit stumped. So took a bit up on the idea that it could be also something outside of an entity. so i made a copy of my map, removed all entities out of the file, palced a new spawnpoint and i could load it back in. So its somehwere in this mess, but not sure where. According to Ensiform, the numbering doesnt say everything. 29 was a waypoint in earlier file and in new file its something else where it jeps on 28, its something else. // entity 1 { "deathscript"

  14. what texture is on it in your map?
  15. Its my only custom pk3's at the moment i got (my own). I do agree that singleplayer is not very unique and i will change it on release. And yes about the params, its true, cause nonplanar and shadeangle are not supported, i use it for preview and testing actually ( and not for production) cause it will give me an error at a line if i got something wrong. That said, i am glad we pointed you in the right direction ? keep it up
  16. Okay you ever worked with shaders? Its an extra file you place in your shaders folder. Its a textfile that will spice up your textures. Some emit lights, others make things smooth, a 3rd one is an animation, etc. So you create a simple textfile and save it as a *.shader. You add that to the shaderlist.txt your own file (mine is called singleplayer.shader) You are now set up. Now you can start writing the shader. A shader has several stages, each in which you can add certain kind of stuff. On the left screen you see for example the panel. The panel has indeed the blend on it and a material for sound effect (you hear when stepping on it the metal sound) it contains a lightmap stage, a blending stage and another blending stage in which i add an environment map, so you have the illusion of a reflection. If you cant write it, there is a tool that can help you, it's called Shadered2. It came with my 1.4 GTK Radiant installation (i actually work now in the 1.6, but i refuse to throw it out... you know, nostalgia... i do this for almost 20 years ? ) Anyway, this tool will help you (see below) with a preview and a bunch of options how you want to set it up.
  17. If you use a phong shader on that metal of yours, your edges wont be that sharp, make it look better. Something like q3map_shadeangle 120 q3map_material SolidMetal q3map_nonplanar You can play with the shadeangle actually, the lesser the value, the less rounded it looks, 90 would be ok ? i use this a lot for terrain smoothing, but you can use it also for smoothing hard edges in say your column way
  18. Angel, that reflective floor tile looks amazing. I may need to steal that idea from you. Is it an env map and the reflect shader with a portal surface?
  19. First WIPS in a while, i am adjusting the ground level under the water, to create a more shallow area. Some parts you ll have to swim rather than walk, and since its an in led of sea level (not sure how i am gonna do that part yet) its quite important, we creating little higher up land parts within that, Dont mind the texturing, i am gonna work on that as soon as the mapping part is finnished, i may gonna use more dot2product with 3 point shadering, but for now, this works to give me a sense of area. There is a part you dont see, still caulk, but i am rounding up the mountain on the first picture, so it gets connected. The little trench will be an optional road you ll have to unlock. Else you gotta take the long way arround the mountain. I tell you, its quite a walk, and since you play a non-force user, i am actually inclined to see if we can unlock a speeder or something. The mission i ll have to work still on it, but i got in a seperate file already objectives made on what needs happening. Also added a lot of clip brushes, so you cant climb up the mountains anymore ?
  20. environment mapping with a ligth shader can create really weird results, you may have to put a real low number on it. But i think i have seen it before, in an Immenor map where he experimented with ligths, reflective floors and creating the metallic shine. It was a concept map, dont think he ever released it.
  21. they indeed use a different skeleton, plus the problem is here verts probably wont match up correctly (mouth placement, noseplacement vs the actual skin) You may wanna unwrap a jka face and use it in a different layer to check simularities..
  22. Reality ... a map with 7 brushes, a reskin of a stormtrooper into a dark trooper, another reskin of a dark trooper into a dark trooper, another reskin, this time the dark trooper is bright pink and is called pink trooper, a Jan head frankensteined on boba fett model and reskinned so it may somewhere far away resemble bo-katan ..... Sorry couldnt resist ?
  23. Work caught up on me the last year, as you can see of the posts i made in here... which are pretty much zero. However, nothing is lost! I am still here and hoover occasionally here around on the forums, lurking. shht, i havent forgotten this. New computer though, but got it all running again. ?Wips Soon again!
  24. If i can contribute time, to help eventually with scripts and map making, but dont get your hopes up. I have 2 little sith spawns from 1 and 3 who need my undivided attention, and next to it, i still work on my own SP mod, Republic Intelligence ?
  25. Happy holidays to all!
