  1. Placeholder material and some trim. The symmetric design of this map makes it a good place to use the modern modular approach. The columns were going to be square, but after some research I decided to make round columns. I'm going to bevel the arches too.
  2. I'm settling down with this layout. The rest of the paths are all mirrored. I have to take measures of all corridors now.
  3. I decided to get rid of the middle ramp because it feels out of place. It was then that I realized that the syymmetrical design feels better suited for CTF, not FFA. I decided to remove the middle bridge as well.
  4. I've learned the very basics to model the basic shapes in blender. Still have to master boolean operations though. In UT I was limited to 8 - 16 sided cylinders, in UE4 I'm going up to 64. IT's much easier to work with multiples of ten than with powers of two.
  5. With BSP I couldn't go higher than 300 poly. With meshes I can have millions of triangles. I can build arches and domes now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pantheon,_Rome Some references
  6. I'm using the UE4 FPS template as a base. According to its scale, 256 x 256 x 256 in UT1 translates to roughly 500 x 500 x 500 in UE4. Collision and lightmaps in this current state are completely screwed. I made some basic BSP prototype and converted to static meshes. This conversion step causes a lot of issues with lightmaps and collision. UE4 with a 1366 x 768 screen isn't good. It has so many menus and windows that you really need two screens to work properly with it. Ideas for UE4 version: - 3D trims - Flickering light effect for all tourches - Water caustics. Not raytracing, just some cool projected texture - Textures now can have displacement, normals, Physically Based - Higher triangle count, mostly due to round columns and trim https://postimg.cc/gallery/cs04sd3 A bit of achitectural research
  7. My first time ever trying a map in UE4. I'm trying to rebuild this https://postimg.cc/gallery/cs04sd3 The scale seems to be twice as large and twice as high. In UT a cube of 256 x 256 was the standard measure for rooms and corridors. In UE4 I have to round that to 250 and multiply by 2. I have to move away from powers of two. Triple height seems to be too much.
  8. I should have said "one" instead of "you".
  9. This game looks so beautiful and it isn't next gen. The are probably very good at hidding loading, seams and pop in.
  10. Is that what you already do with photo editing software?
  11. What happened to Voxel based GI? I remember during the days of Rage that Carmack said that triangles would become so small that the same idea of slicing a huge texture in smaller pieces and loading just the required pieces could be extended to geometry as well. Seems that years later and we get to that point.

    Corona Virus

    I want to punch the president's face. The minister of health said "A doctor does not leave a patient behind". The president replied with "Patients can seek another doctor if they want to". https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/ Look at this number.... !!!
  13. The spec war is ludicrous in the comments sections. Teraflops vs SSD speed. The only advantage that I see is that PS5 might draw less power and the system might use up less RAM due to the SSD speeds. Other than that, the xbox has more TMUs and more ROPs, which translates into more pixels. Games on PCs from now on are going to require SSDs and 8-cores are quickly going to be a requisite.

    Corona Virus

    Past 800 deaths and 16k confirmed cases here. But they are unable to keep up with the number of suspected cases, they lack the infrastructure to test everyone. The President keeps arguing with everybody about letting the safety measures down. I read that some nurses, doctors and other ppl working at hospitals are being rebuked because ppl think that they are carrying the virus with them. "Don't touch me!" "Stay away from me!". But there is an interesting piece of data: the virus is not reaching all cities, it's mostly hitting large cities. Small towns are pretty much unaffected by it.

    Corona Virus

    I just had my first online class. Teacher was streaming from home and it was just like the regular classes. I'm worried about the courses that require labs because you can't do anything without having access to the lab itself. This is going to screw everyone's schedule. For the first night in 2 weeks ppl stopped demanding for the president to fall. He must have received some advice to stop claiming that the virus was not so serious and that ppl shouldn't be afraid to go out.

I really don't understand what made this particular virus cause this global crisis that is making all governments say that ppl should stay at home until it is safe to go out.

    Corona Virus

    Some articles are stating that the lockdown should span 2 months. That a massive impact on everyone's lives and economy. There is an ongoing war here with the President wanting to save the economy and the governators wanting to stop the vírus from spreading even more.
  18. Both MS and Sony did invest in processing power for 3D audio. Their current hardware can do it, but if developers do so they are forced to cut down elsewhere because there isn't enough power to do 3D audio plus graphics. This is some phd work from 2014. It makes a huge difference in immersion.

    Olympic games officialy delayed. Ppl who study such viruses and diseases must have told politicians but they didn't listen.

    Corona Virus

    When was the last time europe has seen so many deaths? That heat wave in France also killed many old age ppl. Europe is already suffering a huge influx of refugees.
  21. I just watched it. They must have broken the maps in so many pieces with lots of jumping in between to hide the slow streaming speeds of HDD. Must be the same reason for having so few enemies at the same time.

    Corona Virus

    This is fake. That didn't happen this year, it was from another time and something unrelated to the current virus. Holy.... What did the american government do? The number of infected in the US is alarming.

    Corona Virus

    Our president went to US to meet with Trump and now lots of ministers and senators have been infected. He's such a dum....
  24. This pretty much explains why they dropped separate DDR just for the OS. And the zen 2 cores are much more powerful to run the OS itself. There is an on going wars about teraflops, lol.

    Corona Virus

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-51701039 It all began in China, but see what some religions do? The number of deaths here in increasing. 7 now. Now they are announcing the suspension of some taxes, giving money for some special cases of poverty and such. Ppl living in slums are under the severe risk due to many factors (smaller homes, less water, poor envrionmental conditions, etc) Some doctors here are heavly criticizing all the attention given to the corona virus because there are other diases much more dangerous than it. Dengue fever for instance.
