This is an example of the type of twisted pillar that was seen in de_arkanos, a map by Skaarj. It was discussed in the forums a lot, and finally I found out how to make it, using lots of vertex manipulation.

I put up another version, but all I did to it was change the textures and lighting to make it look nicer.

And then changed again, after realizing not everybody had one of those textures...

Very cool method!

At first I was perplexed how you did it, but as soon as I got the first set of piece done, it was copy/paste, put it into position, and finally rotate the outer vertices 15?, and simply repeat.

Then when one "blade" is done, simply copy, paste, and rotate 90? for each remaining side.

Very nice work, and the finished product is very clean.

This gives me some ideas mwhahahaha! <rowleybob twiddles fingers like Mr. Burns. :P>

I should note that I uploaded my map before I ever played yours, so I hope you don't think I in any way copyied your design ;)

Hmmm... I don't know about THAT! You're still on my "whacking list" for now.

Did you even look at mine?! It's actually a lot different. Those 12-piece objects on the floor are how I started.

Yes, of course I looked at it. I was the first to download! Your method was nearly the same as mine, except I made one piller side at a time, then copied it and rotate it 4 times. And mine ended up looking too long and thin, too... Okay, you win, but I still submitted before you, haw-haw!

I don't think they're "nearly the same" but whatever. I'm glad WCD made that thread, because this was fun!

Maybe we should have some mini brushing competitions more often!
