map/server help

Post by Sir_Pants » Thu Nov 24, 2005 6:49 am

ok so im creating this winterland map for the holidays (even though the idea may be old), and here is what i got so far, this file includes two screenies, the configuration file im using, the map file, and the server output, for some reason i seem to get a lot of lag with this map but when i run maps of the exact same size i dont get lag like this one, im not sure why i also sometimes get the error "segmentation failure/fault" is what i believed its called, not totally sure what it is, and i was also wondering how i would be able to make the decoration balls shine more and look more real on the tree and not so 2d looking, feel free to use this map but its not done yet

Those are three shiney balls, pick which colour you like best and copy the bits over to the other two.




Code: Select all

material
	name ball1
	color red
	specular 1 1 1 1
	shininess 100
end
material
	name ball2
	color green
	specular .5 .5 .5  1
	shininess 100
end
material
	name ball3
	color blue
	specular  .25 .25 .25 1
	shininess 100
end
[/code]
