Prey-like portals


Recommended Posts

Someone over at doom3world.org once setup prey style portals in Doom 3 but his download links no longer work and he doesn't seem to respond to

requests for his work... That said the new 3D skybox code by 7318 and grayman should work for this purpose.

Teleporting the player is not a big deal. The same counts for the teleporter arrows shown in the above video. A custom arrow overwriting an existing one, some defs and a script, that's it (yeah, and maybe some particles to make it look good ;) ).

All the elements are covered in the wiki I believe actually. It's more the creative application of teleporting and visuals (or lack of visuals to obscure what's happening to be seamless) that make the magic, full props to Stumpy, from using simple processes the game already provides. I was chuckling reading some of the conjecture here that's already been done! :-)

Not overt look-through-see-alternate-destination visuals. The theme of that work is common sense not applying, unlimited stairs, going the same way but finding yourself at a different destination and the like, as you mentioned a couple posts ago. One of the obvious portals is intentionally visibly obscured. Most of the others are meant to be not apparent to the player. Then there are some that are meant to be obvious for gameplay reasons (feedback).

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      I'm starting to think we need another mapping contest.

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
