  1. Is it allowed to use your assets from de_breach etc. in the mapcore 2019 competition?

  2. Oh yeah looks like they changed how the product listings work, remaking everything now.
  3. The Uncompressed template sets the textures to be BGR888 or BGRA8888. Though DXT compressed textures not working in SFM seems weird, since all the default models/maps use DXT compressed textures, sure there's not an issue somewhere else? Also I believe 16 bit textures are not really supported by VTFCmd, utility that we use to convert the textures, so no point in using that.
  4. I've created some official documentation for VMT Editor and Substance shaders. VMT EDITOR USER GUIDE Hopefully you'll find this useful and discover some new features.

    Alright, here's a quick guide on how to use the radar generator. First up you need to manually create the required masks and images, probably with photoshop or something similar. You also have to manually draw the overlapping stripes in the height map if you have any in your level. Objectives, buyzones and height get automatically clipped to your playable area so you don't have to worry about the outer edges. Additional detail is the only map that should be transparent, with grey or white detail. You can also lower the contrast of the overview or just use a grey image for a cleaner look. For making height maps you can use @Terri's generator, you'll have to align the height to match your overview in photoshop, do some additional cleanup work and adjust the gamma. After you have all those you can use either Substance Designer or Substance Player (free) https://www.allegorithmic.com/products/substance-player Substance Designer: Drag the file into a new empty graph, also drag all your bitmaps and connect them to appropriate inputs. If you don't have any outputs you can just right click on the radar generator node and select create > output nodes. You can also adjust the files some more to make it look the way you want, like changing the levels of the height to change the final colors. Graph size should be 1024. Substance Player: Open radargen.sbsar then browse to all the maps on the right side panel. Custom grid and custom gradient are not needed. In both cases you can adjust some of the parameters, like buyzone and objective colors. If you want to use custom height colors select Gradient colors as custom and plug in a vertical gradient in the Custom gradient slot, example: Hopefully this covers it, if you have any questions let me know.
  6. A trailer for a narrative exploration game I've been working on called The Gap. Hopefully releasing in 2019.

    One thing you can also do is to add $flow_debug 1 to both water vmts which will allow you to see the flowmap texture. Then try to align that between 3D skybox and level like you'd do with a regular texture. Delete $flow_debug 1 once you're done and hopefully it'll be seamless.

    The water misalignment is because the scale of the water normal map is controlled by the vmt parameter $flow_normaluvscale. Texture scale in hammer controls the scaling of the flowmap texture, which should actually be something big like 20. To fix the issue you have to create a new vmt for the skybox water and adjust $flow_normaluvscale and $flow_noise_scale -- divide both by 16. Here's how wrong Hammer texture scale looks like -- left is default .25 and you get these weird distortions while right is 10 and you get a normal looking water texture.
  9. Alright, I did some testing with the new detail sprites and found out how more specifically how they work. @Mamorex was on the right track but there's a few key things you left out. Removing $alphatest from the material or adding $translucent First, the detail sprites material - it's 2 detail sprite sheets side by side, so version A and version B. The different versions have to have same sprite positions and sizes. You only specify version A coordinates in the .vbsp. Next up, the detail sprites masks. Red and blue are for wind offset -- so you can have different parts of the sprites sway in the wind differently, you can see Valve isolated some blades of grass for this effect. The green channel is a tint mask and controls how much the sprites are affected by the $worldspacetint. That brings us to the world space textures. They seem to automatically get resized to fit the whole map area, so it you resize the map you'd have to resize the textures too. The world space tint texture is pretty self explanatory, controls what color to tint the grass, 127 grey means no tint. The world space masks texture uses the red channel to select which version of the sprites to use -- 0 is version A and anything more is version B. The green channel of the texture controls the sprite size -- 127 is default, with darker making the sprites smaller and brighter making the sprites larger. The vmt command $minimumspritesize controls the cutoff point for the sprites, so the sprites smaller than the specified value don't get rendered which can act as a placement mask. I don't know what the blue channel of this texture does, changing it had no effect on the sprites for me. All this means sprites still get placed by vbsp on map compile, so they still use displacement alpha for the placement, but the new masks can manipulate sprites size and color after map compile.

    I just said you could do that, not that it would produce good results Hopefully this helps understand it better: Also you can have multiple CCs in one map, you can limit them with a radius or with a fog_volume, so only one is active at a time.

    Yeah you basically modify the clean LUT with your adjustments that are then applied in game. The screenshot is there so you can better see what adjustments you are making, but you could also just open the LUT file by itself, do some adjustments and save.

    I didn't make any Photoshop specific things, but here's the process for making a color correction file in Photoshop: 1. Download this image (this is the off.raw color correction LUT you can find in materials/correction, converted to png) 2. Open a screenshot of your map in Photoshop. 3. Drag the above LUT onto the Photoshop file. Don't change the scale. Move it to a corner. It should look something like this: 4. Either apply the color correction adjustments you want using adjustment layers or flatten the image and use the regular color correction tools. 5. When you're happy with the result, crop the image to the LUT size - 1024 x 32 px. 6. Save the file as .raw with the following settings and move it into materials/correction. 7. You can now reference that file in Hammer and color correction should work. Don't forget to pack it when uploading to workshop.

    Hey, I've decided to make a topic where I'll put together all the links to different stuff I've released for Source/CS:GO. Assets Assets from my CS:GO maps. Free for non-commercial use as long as you give appropriate credit. Breach Newly released assets from Breach! Over 600 models and over 100 materials. Includes a zoo map. https://www.dropbox.com/s/xsfp5kobdv22voa/Breach.zip?dl=0 Thrill Assets from Thrill. Includes a zoo map. https://www.dropbox.com/s/tkgw959whnubnla/Thrill.zip?dl=0 Cruise https://www.dropbox.com/s/q3ybhzd1p2q522t/Cruise.zip?dl=0 Resort https://www.dropbox.com/s/dwasa7bs5g3wo1a/Resort.zip?dl=0 Zoo https://www.dropbox.com/s/xehbw0k67tximp4/Zoo.zip?dl=0 Castle https://www.dropbox.com/s/e76x6st0nsbpafq/Castle.zip?dl=0 Water Pack Collection of 4 different water textures that work both on high and low shader settings. Free to modify. https://gortnar.com/vmt/liquids.zip Source Engine Tools Streamline the Source engine workflow. Mostly substance stuff. Substance Shaders (and templates) Newly updated shaders for Substance Designer and Substance Painter. Supports Diffuse, Envmap reflection, Specular reflection, Glossiness, Metallic (Diffuse tint), Fresnel ranges and LightmappedGeneric mode. Also includes Painter templates and export presets and a glossiness wizard filter for Painter that can be used to create glossiness and envmap mask maps from specular mask or roughness. https://gortnar.com/vmt/sbs_shaders.zip https://gortnar.com/vmt/painter_templates.zip VMT Editor PBR to Source A substance file and a VMT template that aim to match the PBR look as close as possible in Source (still a long way off). I don't suggest relying on this to make your materials (learn how Source handles materials instead), but it does an alright job with any PBR materials you might want to use in Source. Note that this converter only works on VertexLitGeneric. There's a brush version included but it requires manual tweaking based on the material. https://gortnar.com/vmt/pbr_to_source.zip Radar generator Generates CS:GO radar images, both regular and spectate versions. For multi level radars you have to use multiple generators and blend them together. Can be used with masks from Terri's auto radar. Requires you to make overview image, playable area and spawn/plant zone masks. https://www.dropbox.com/s/mij82s8x9q98189/radargen.sbsar?dl=0 Sun color calculator A quick test project, calculates the color of your light_environment direct brightness based on the fact that the final color depends on both ambient and direct. https://codepen.io/gortnar/full/xYJGLj/ If you have any questions, ask away!
