With out a paddle

Post by imsome » Tue Feb 14, 2006 1:12 am

i'm making a rabbit chase map very loossly based off a pinball game. the entire floor is going to be covered with physics drivers that will propel you every which way. still setting up the phys drivers and need to make it look good but it will be a crazy map to play, still need a name. please post ideas that don't require a lot of modeling as i suck more then paris hilton in a fraternity.

could you elaborate as to what a hut does for your map?
that would help....

Well The flag spawn zones were really easy to get to if you jumped over the wall and as flags are an absolute nessesity for survial i wanted to make so that you'd have to be skilled to get the upper hand. also it looks better when the middle is less open

well the hut is fine as it is for the effect you want...

as to textures your gonna have to make your
own or borrow one from someone else...use one of trepans or louman
they make those are always nice...maybe use a wood one for the walls
and a shake/tile like one for the roof...

i would borrow textures and give credit for them in my map but i don't know how to find them, there needs to be like a texture search engine for hosted pics

well i've added a second level, just have a couple texture problems to figure out. anything green will bump you up to another green platform that you can use to get to the second level. still need a way down

well i've worled out most of the bugs, this has taken me a while as i haven't been near my computer for what seems like forever. on the second floor there are lots of OO's so you can get down to the bottom. please tell me if it has any bugs

So what do you want? An area with no flags? or an area with only one kind of flag?

For an area with no flags, put a drivethrough transparent meshbox very slightly above the jumpy level to prevent flags from spawning or being dropped there. If you want flags to be able to be dropped there, but not spawn there, then...

If you just want an area with one kind of flag, the only way I know of is to make a zone for that flag and then cover the rest of the map with zones for all your other flags.

For a way down teleporters are always useful. :lol-old:
