Some questions about curves in DarkRadiant

Recommended Posts

I've seen how patches can be used to create some basic curves, and how things like cones and cylinders can be created with brushes. I am curious about how I can create some other curves - say I want a 90 degree curve, ie, and end-cap cut in half. How can I create this? I see that I cannot cut patches. I'd also like to figure out how to create a cylinder with a hollow interior, and also a hollow half sphere (dome) or quarter sphere (half-dome). I've seen most of these in various FMs so it is almost certainly doable in DR, but I'm at a bit of a loss. Thanks in advance!

Yes, you can use the Scripts -> Split patch to make half- and quarter-domes.

 

I'm not quite sure what 'a cylinder with a hollow interior' is asking for (anything made with Patch -> Create Cylinder will be hollow, unlike a brush prism), but if you want the cylinder's surfaces to face inwards you can do Patch -> Matrix -> Invert, and if you want both inward- and outward-facing surfaces without a twosided material, you can copy the patch and matrix-invert the copy.

 

The 'end-cap cut in half' sounds like the Bevel option in the cap selector.

Ah, I see. For something like that, try making a basic cyllinder and then using Thicken Selected Patches with the option to create seams ticked.
