Really enjoyed it, was awesome to actually see about their family lives and lifestyles. Pro gaming will no doubt go through some big changes and no doubt become big business in no time.

Today I'm gonna have a session on my map, try and bring it up to par for the compo.

Zeeba that looks quite good. Don't know why I bother trying to keep lag down for multiplayer when I could just map for half-life.

in Goldsource group? Post #315868
It's a good idea, however, I imagine there would already be a lot of semi active groups trying to do the same thing.

This was the only group with more than a few members:

Their discussion is dead, there are no comments, only a few announcements :(

I think starting a thriving group will be challenging.

Thanks Zeeba, but they were my first attempts at making textures from scratch, they aren't terrible, they tile well, but they don't look that good. Next time I'll try digital photos or something.

Also not sure I'll do an update for my map. I did PM it late to grim but its also in the vault. If I update it, I will submit it through the competition and probably PM you Pb just to be on the safe side.

edit: Is Ant actually judging?

in Sledge (Hammer Alternative) Alpha Build Post #314519
This is so cool! Here are my first initial thoughts.

How do I move the 3D camera (Shift + C) in hammer?

After dragging out a brush, do I have to click enter? That is slightly annoying.

In the corner of the view ports it'd be nice to see top, front, side etc.

Yep seems so:

Author says in comments:
If you upload yours captain terror, i can remove this for you being its your map! :)
We just enjoyed it so to play it on our server it needed to be on the workshop haha.
Let me know as soon as you put it up that its there and ill remove this one champ, thanking you.
Looks great CT, love the background and the large support structures look awesome, quite halo-ish.

Not sure what you're talking about Don, feel free to enlighten me but Einstein's math creates a singularity when objects of mass reach the speed of light, having infinite energy/mass.

in The minimum REAL step Post #314024
Light speed is a constant, so if our world were a speck in another world, they would have a very hard time seeing things in real time. In fact they would be breaking the e=mc^2 law just by moving around, surpassing light speed with a huge mass.

Not certain but:

Pretty sure it already is as small as possible. The reason you can walk on it is because of the players clipping.

I'll share a short tale of mine, I don't think I've ever been more scurred.

Basically I woke up in the middle of the night, and my cover is missing. I guessed it must have fallen down the side of the bed, so in the dark I stick my hand down the side of my bed, searching around becoming ever more frantic as its just not there. So I check the other side, nothing, so I have to turn on the lights, by now I'm really confused and scared someone is playing with me.

No freaking covers in my room at all. Door is closed as well. This is where I was really the most scared I have ever been, opening the door to see what the fuck is up. House is empty, I walk out into the corridor and am still terrified.

Walk up to the stairs and wtf, there is my doona cover, sitting on the freakin' bottom of the stairs.

Talk about anti-climactic!

No, they don't seem to scroll if they don't have the scroll prefix.
Posted 6 years ago2013-02-24 01:05:42 UTC
in Trying to understand GoldSrc textures Post #312742
I thought 'scroll' prefix was suppose to be used in conjunction with func_conveyor. I just made a waterfall that way.

edit: or do you mean it would scroll by itself without a func_conveyor? The answer is no it doesn't.

in Geometry compiling question. Post #312678
That's the flat/concave problem I just addressed. You could split the face in the opposite direction and it wouldn't bug up but the geometry would be different.

I thought decals used black or white for transparency, had only one single colour and variant shades of that in the last colour index slot.

in Geometry compiling question. Post #312599
It's about both. I just know how convenient it is already, and need to know if there are optimization issues that are worth trading off for the convenience.
Posted 6 years ago2013-02-13 03:49:11 UTC
in Geometry compiling question. Post #312595
Well it isn't about brush count. It's about convenience. This method can create complex brushes very quickly and can be much much faster than regular multibrush VM techniques.
User posted image
edit: Also to quickly find that problem, check the brush number in the compile log and use the 'go to brush #' soup, very easy to find.

in Geometry compiling question. Post #312579
If the angle is 180 or greater (I.E. concave) It will either produce respectively the coplanar face error or and invalid solid, but hammer won't tell you that.

Major limitation in comparison to wedge or tetrahedron method.
1 seems to work fine but 2 seems to trigger the coplanar faces error.
Posted 6 years ago2013-02-11 11:26:44 UTC
in Geometry compiling question. Post #312570
What about 2D shapes? Has anyone tested that? In terms of wedge vs tetrahedron . Possible clipping disaster?
Posted 6 years ago2013-02-11 10:45:25 UTC
in Geometry compiling question. Post #312568
Well after reading that I guess 2 should be better considering less face splitting.

After reading about bevel though I am a bit confused. Wouldn't it be best for optimization to bevel every unseen face on the map? What's the point of nulling unseen faces then?
Posted 6 years ago2013-02-11 09:19:28 UTC
in Geometry compiling question. Post #312563
That's kinda combining both 2 and 3 for a more versatile shape. I'm just asking if I only if one approach is better for optimization than the other.

I don't really understand how the compiling process works, I don't even know if it makes a difference.
Posted 6 years ago2013-02-11 06:40:08 UTC
in Geometry compiling question. Post #312560
Yeah, not sure about the clipping, though.

1 is the shape I want to achieve but it is invalid.

2 is using ctrl f to make the invalid face valid, and I want to know if this is bad practice opposed to the common terrain and vertex manipulation technique which is to split the shapes to create the triangular faces which is what 3 is.

So what I am wondering when this stacks up what if there are advantages to one approach or the other.
