Code: Select all

material
 name invisible
 color 0.5 0.5 0.5 0.5
end

meshbox
 position 0 0 0
 size 10 10 10
 matref invisible
end
That makes walls a semitransparent gray. See here for how to make invisible walls, and check the wiki for Material, and how to apply it to a Meshbox.

the there is a list of colors and their values on wiki, that will help a lot... check it out.
Humor helps us to think out of the box. The average child laughs about 400 times per day, the average adult laughs only 15 times per day. What happened to the other 385 laughs?

How can you make see-through, drive-through structures?

Change drivethrough to shootthrough to let bullets through, but not tanks, or passable for both tanks and bullets.

i'm "running into" the same problem - if i remove the matref, i can drive through, but no transparency. if i include the matref, i can see through it, but get stuck driving through. Any thoughts?

Did you use meshbox or box.

I have had the same problem with box.

But meshbox does fine.

As of 2.0.10, BZFS will accept a material applied to a box as well as the meshbox.

yes, but for some reason when you apply a material to a box, drivethrough will not allow for complete passage.

File a bug report at SourceForge with an example map file that exhibits the behavior.
