de_wanda by warby ... final release !


Recommended Posts

so one thing i leared for sure is to do more public beta stuff and name your releases _alpha_05 _beta_02 _rc_1 etc ... so even you always have the option to change it wothout causing to much map differs form server hassel ^^

That's kinda crap sometimes though. I did a beta and people didn't realize the final was out.

Kinda sucks seeing more beta versions being played than the final.

The other fix is to use 2 new vrad parameters that you'd add to hammers compile window in export mode. -staticproppolys and -staticproplighting. This will tell vrad to create lightmaps for all static props and essentially create self lighting assets.

uhm well i tried what you said but it is pretty useless right now.

first at all for al of you who want to try. this copy paste from vrad paramter list:

-StaticPropLighting : generate backed static prop vertex lighting

-StaticPropPolys : Perform shadow tests of static props at polygon precision

-OnlyStaticProps : Only perform direct static prop lighting (vrad debug option)

-StaticPropNormals : when lighting static props, just show their normal vector

and here are some screenshots, which are pretty crap as i must mention.


didn't you test that before? i mean it is obious that this feature is not really well implemented yet.

and even if it would work: default T&L Lighting does its job pretty well anyhow in the official maps, doesnt it?!

      Hello everybody!
      I'm creating a map (based on the Maginot Line) for the Wingman's Contest - provided by Source Engine's Discord.

      I started the map 3 weeks ago and I'm on the detailing phase, slowly progreeding area by area, worried with the time left. I decided to follow this strategy: detail 75% of every area and after that (and gaining some time) I'd put some final touches + polishment + optimization.  

      I wonder, should I keep doing it in a hurry or is it better to make it with no rush and patience (losing the deadline)? There's still a lot to do and I'd like to hear your opinions...
