DM-Reco by Conrad "Justin" Slawinski

Thanks, Obsidian!
 
 Is there a way to build .aas file? In editor AAS: Compile AAS
"C:/GtkRadiant-1.6.4-20131213/bspc" -optimize -forcesidesvisible -bsp2aas "C:/Quake III Arena/baseq3/maps/reco-r3.map" >"C:/GtkRadiant-1.6.4-20131213/junk.txt"
 
BSPC log:
optimize = true
forcesidesvisible = true
bsp2aas: C:Quake III Arenabaseq3mapsreco-r3.bsp to C:Quake III Arenabaseq3mapsreco-r3.aas
 
And lots of these: 
(...)
two tiny brushes
two tiny brushes
split not on both sides
split not on both sides
split not on both sides
(...)
Tried parent
 
Is this a result of so called T-shapes? I just read that I have to have this in mind from very beginning of the mapping. Shall I start brushwork from scratch? Does detail brushes count? I might remove most of them just for aas compilation??
In the end there is no .aas file built whatsoever. I cannot test map in Quake. :sad:

Did you place botclip brushes around the level? You should cover _everything_ that is not needed for the bots with this to optimize, even out the ground, cover small details, lower the sky etc

I thought this was unneccesary, I 'll do that.

Welcome my dear friend: Gorgo:

He said that he needed proper stone texture and  new set of teeth. Damn. So litlle time to finish this map and fix all bugs.

Thank you! I try my best to find time between University lectures and tutorials. However layout is basically done. Now its time for lighting, item placement and bot support which can be pretty troublesome...

Ok, so I took a look at this level, that Conrad sent to me.

The issue here is that the fire2.jpg is faulty, it's probably saved with some compression not compatible with Q3, if you save it as a tga or a regular jpg, it works. This gave the error "Requested feature was omitted at compile time" and forced Q3 to quit while loading the level.

You should also know, that the level has a leak in it, there's a gap in the skybox.

Sorry for delay. I don't yet have everything sorted out. I had my computer down and plenty of things on my mind but last 2 days I've been mapping like crazy! I can see a lot of submissions are being polished and everything starts looking beautiful ( I will post my opinions as soon as possible) Here are the problems I have encountered.

  • I created skybox and I have issue (I tried using the "solution" but It didn't work - Can I have it saved as 512x512 .tga 24 bit?)
  • The candles shader is way too bright (with similar settings before it was much darker! Could skybox have affected it?)
textures/map_reco/fire
{
	qer_editorimage textures/map_reco/fire.tga
	surfaceparm trans
	cull disable
	deformVertexes autosprite
	qer_trans 1
	q3map_surfacelight 6000
	q3map_backsplash 4 24
	{
		map textures/map_reco/fire.tga
		blendfunc add
		rgbGen identity
	}
	{
		map textures/map_reco/fire2.tga
		blendfunc add
		rgbGen wave noise 0 1 2 0.3 
	}
}

Its only 32x32 and I read that surfacelight parameter has to be pretty large on those. Im building my map with q3map2-fs

 

Now time for some screenshots:

And too bright interior with lots of candles:

I would remove the lightimage stage in the shader and just use point lights where needed, I think that's a better way of controlling light.

 

What was the issue with the sky and why would that be fixed if you save it as a tga (which you can do ofc)?
