Length - Width - and Hate! :D Height, the E is pretty much silent though it changes the I to a long I sound. So it sounds like "hight". Not correcting you cause we know what you mean. Just trying to be educational.

 

Man you just whip patches in to shape. Great to see your row and column thought when creating patchwork for the stair rail and other things. The things you're taking in to consideration prior to starting and how you're arriving at the number of sections in advance. Good stuff.

 

Why is it that manipulating brush vertices do that I wonder. I've also found it awkward when trying to move a single vertex and others are moving around that aren't selected. They have a mind of their own!

 

Wouldn't it be cool if when you created a brush it was treated like a thickened patch, but sealed against the void? Brushes act like they're special or something, they have attitude.

I am curious how you cycled around changing the red/white strip wall paper texture on the wall FS to blue so quickly. Don't you have to cycle through each entity in a FS to get the one you want or how does that work. It appeared you picked them just by selecting them as if they were WS, but clearly they are FS. Is there a keyboard shortcut for exact entity selection in a FS?

I can't remember properly, but either I had luck and got it first or I've just pasted it.

Perfect! As someone who is still trying to learn and don't expect to get his first map done until the end of the year or so, I'm digging myself into this. Way overdue that someone does something like this!

I only watched 3 minutes so far, but I already love it.

 

Btw, you are from saxony, aren't you? That's where I come from.

I really dig that dialect. The problem is, most others don't...

 

Saxony is great, don't be ashamed! :)

Saxony is, but from what I've heard over the time not our accent :P

Saxony roots is half of being Anglo-Saxon, which applies to many of our US & Commonwealth folk, so it can't be all bad. ^_^

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

Btw.: I was working on another project currently but need a break (and as far as I can tell I'm in no hurry).

 

Due to my limited planning I don't really have an idea how to procede with the mission I was working on for my let's map, so I've tried several things and decided I need an "artistical break" on that one.

 

However, I would like to continue making Let's Map's if you are interested and just thought that I may ask you what you like to see. I have several ideas in mind.

  • A city/street mission
  • A rooftop mission
  • A pagan mission or similar, thus meaning a mission that needs to look organic
  • something else

If you want to watch something like these I would be happy to do this. You can also post ideas for missions/settings here, or specific tasks (like creating good performing outdoor areas for example) which I would happily try to answer/explain.

 

P.S.: :)

Yeah, that's what the people from bavaria, north rhine westfalia and hesse say, because they don't know what a likable dialect is ;)

I say, since you have a wealth of knowledge on the coding side of things, all that alchemy, it would be great to see video tutorials about stuff that are out of the reach of the beginner mapper that has just learnt how to build rooms and place decorations:

 

- Common triggers and how they can apply to gameplay situations;

 

- How to set up conversations, of the type Shadowhide provided in his example map, and see them through in game;

 

- How to set up conversations so as to create in game cinematics with AI, as I and others have done, without the need of scripting;

 

- How to tailor with the inner stats of the game, like making the player slower or faster, or his enemies;

 

There are other situations, but anyway. Nothing all encompassing, please! Theres really no point in encyclopedic knowledge, having to go through all the details and variables would kill, but having more of those videos about gameplay instead of map building would be fun and enlightening. I remember watching Doom3 videos with stuff like how to set up a triggered monster ambush, those were really helpful, even if some of the terminology was not exactly the same in TDM.

An episode about tweaking/optimizing performance for comlpex & high detailed inner spaces and/or for a map playing (mainly) in an open area would be interesting.

One regards custom textures would also be great!

And another one. The topic this time is how to create a custom extinguishable light using two torches. Enjoy the watch.

 

 

As always, questions and feedback is appreciated.

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
