I thought of that, but it's terrain, not just a model... Guess I'll give it a try.

in .OBJ terrain Post #334353
As the title says apparently even terrain is handled as an .obj format object in BREED. I've been searching for a terrain editor which can import said .obj, but to no success. Do you guys know of any such terrain editor? Or at least some software which allows you to convert terrain .obj into some other format OR extract some sort of an accurate enough heightmap out of it. It would spare me a ton of effort if there is one since I need to see the scale difference between the two engines (if any). Another way would be by converting one of the .obj models into an .mdl and getting it into Hammer. But the terrain would really spare me a lot of time if I don't have to begin from a blank file.

Source's physics are on a basic level, compared to others. Shouldn't really be an issue. I'm gonna give it a shot during the Easter vacation with a very basic map just to test the scale and we'll see.

Where can I get the latest SDK from? (Probably Steam)

And... How do I set the scale of entities, such as the player? I mean, the terrain is easy enough to make, especially if on a smaller scale, even though that might make some smaller details impossible, right? They aren't that small on a 1:1 scale, but could end up being too small on a, let's say, 0.25:1 scale.

in Can I recreate an old game in the Source Post #334177
Yeah, but as I mentioned, I run an empty editor with under 10 FPS :D

For now I'm abandoning it since Source is a complete no-go as rufee suggested. If it were possible to somehow make an open-world map, I'd give it a try. But it's not - I have some experience from like 4 years ago and since there are newer iterations of the engine I secretly hoped it began supporting them. But nope.

abbadon, you're not the first to put steel in my balls (luckily only verbally, if you know what I mean :D ). I even have minor plans for BREED 2, being something like WoW, but a first-person, squad based shooter. Kinda like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. if you played any of the games, but with the addition of Space and vehicles. And let's not forget the armed babes from some of the posters in the USC Darwin ;) :D

Dream big, then make plans and work towards them.

P.S.: Anyone played Eternal Silence? It's a space mod for HL2 and it has a flawless transition between open space and the inside of big ships, that even have subsystems. And big open maps. Maybe I should look into it.

in Can I recreate an old game in the Source Post #334168
The game uses the Mercury engine. There is no other game based on it as far as I know. Models use the .obj format, sounds are .ogg and reuseable. Terrain mesh was also some commonly known format if I remember correctly.

You see, the game had a ton of bugs upon release, due to CDV messing with the code. Plus bad mission scripting (illogical decisions, bad planning, forcing some stuff to happen just because...) and your teammates, as well as enemies, are beyond dumb.

So I want to redo the game in a newer engine with far better graphics, fixing all of those problems and possibly remaking most missions from a blank list. But that would take a huge amount of time even if there were more people than just me.

So all of it can be achieved through coding... But what's the point if I can't make the maps... Ah, well. Looks like I need a better PC. I mean, on missions taking place entirely on the surface I can use the fog trick, but not on the third and fourth missions in the video for instance.

Hi guys.
Been a long time since I last posted here, glad you're still up and going :)

So to the question. In the link above you can see several out of 18 missions in the game I want to recreate. However, there are several problems:

1. Large, open surface maps - literally as big as 50 km in radius, even though most of it is empty space.

2. Surface to Space transition, which changes the surface map to the orbit one, but the mission is still the same, the script is not interrupted and you can have a character on the surface and a character in space and switch between them freely.

3. Squads - I think AI in HL2 could be organized in squads, but they're really primitive and only for the script. Here you can give commands to your squadmates and even switch between them.

4. Complex vehicles - for example the USC Dropship has 3 turrets, 2 side doors and the rear hatch, and is pilotable by the player and the AI (via scripted "#CMD" lines). Its engines can also be oriented horizontally and vertically. In the latter state they can increase, hold or decrease altitude fully automatically. Engines are also destructible and become less efficient when damaged.

5. Non-standard camera - can switch between first and third person camera. Also, both cameras are attached to the character model.

So my question is is it possible? Can those things (and others too) be somehow scripted?

Originally I attempted to use Unreal Engine 4, but even an empty editor ran at less than 10 FPS, so... XD

Open the .smds of both models into your modeling program.
Select all triangles, that you don't need and delete 'em.
Delete the skeleton of Barney and place his arms at the crowbar in the right position.
To achieve the last link the triangles of the arms with the crowbar's skeleton and place them in the same position and rotation as the skeleton.
Compile. Play. Enjoy.

in HL1 zombie models question. Post #311300
When decompiling the models using Milkshape zombie01.mdl gives me a set of sequences and a reference, but I cannot tell you what the textures are, because their names are worse than chinese and Milkshape can't decompile them.
zombie02.mdl gives me nothing, zombie03.mdl couldn't be decompiled, zombiet.mdl only gives me an empty .qc file. This leads me to believe that they are just submodels.

in How do i use the game_player_equip entit Post #310819
Does game_player_equip have a filtername think? If it does - try with the team filter. That way you'll need 2 game_player_equip entities and 2 filters. Trigger the game_player_equip entities using different entity, that is triggered at the start of each round. Hope this helps.

in inactivate button? Post #310769
I don't think it is possible. I haven't tried this in Goldsrc yet, but when I do this is Source all entites named with one name act the same way one of them is told to. For example, if you have two(or more) doors with the same name, then, when you open one door, all the other will do so even if they're set to be locked. :(
As for the trigger_relay - setting all buttons to have one name, then the button being pressed will be locked too, unless you make some more complex scripting.

in In-game map editor Post #310698
The game, Cube 2 Sauerbraten, whom I took the screenshot from is NOT a real-time game. Actually the players, "box" and "barrel" entities and triggers are the only real-time things in there. In this game, once you build something, say a car, you can't destroy it even if you blow a truck of nuclear missiles next to it, just like 'boxes' in Source, which are not breakable. Lights are precompiled in-game, using just a single console command, and just in a matter of seconds. The editor's grid size can be adjusted too, from 0(which is as small as...umm...1 inch, compared to the player's size) to 12(one cube covers 1/4 from default sized map).

As for the light preview - the newest version of Hammer does have one, but it is a little buggy and very ugly. :

It would speed up mapping alot, AND you can try out your map immediately instead of having to compile it each time. :crowbar:
