Circular Boxes

Post by A Vicious Muffin » Tue Dec 19, 2006 7:04 pm

This is sort of a noobish question, but how do you make circular objects or boxes in ibzedit. All I can make are squares. This is going to be for a map that looks like a pool table.

You want a 'cylinder' or a 'sphere'...

In super-basic

Code: Select all

## Cylinder
arc
   size 10 10 20
   pos 0 0 0
end

## Sphere
sphere
   radius 10
   pos 0 0 0
end

## You can define the number of sides in an arc with divisions
## For example this will give you a triangular prism
arc
   divisions 3
   size 10 10 20
   pos 0 0 0
end
You can always read the man page, or the bzflag mapmaking wiki.

It describes cones, arcs, and spheres very well at http://www.bzflag.org/wiki/MapMaking

All that I know about them, I learned there.

Yes, but isn't it a pity that Google actually makes you search? :( :D

You put those in with the .bzw file, not in the ibzedit.
Dormant. Not really. Kinda.
