Hello.

I was thinking about making rainy weather for one of the maps in my mod. But ambient_generic gives sound from a static place.

Is there a way to implement this in the Goldsrc engine? Or can we use some hacks like moving ambient_generic with the player etc?

Thanks.

in Normal Mapping in the Goldsrc Post #344928
@Admer456
I just tried to simply create the thingy that I was using in the UE4/Unity/Godot/Source.

I was creating a high poly mesh, creating a normal map from it, and using the normal map on low poly mesh/BSP's texture to simulate shadows and lighting so without adding dents and bumps it would "simulate" them.

In screenshots, I tried to do the thing but I just ended up making some kind of "tessellation" effect that I make with a heightmap, not with a normal map. In those screenshots, I was trying to show I couldn't understand how to do normal maps with brushes, actually. :D

When I said "Increase build time for quality?" actually I was trying to refer to something like this

Sorry for unclearance and thanks for your help. :)

Thanks for your reply @admer456

I'm working on the SOHL source right now and some of the features are dependent on the Cg and I don't want to rewrite them. Also, I don't want to switch to the vanilla source because SOHL has some really useful features and I don't want to rewrite them too.

Is there a way to use Cg and GSLS together? If not, do you think its worth to increase build time for quality?

Hello everyone!

I'm wondering, is there any modern approach to the normal maps in the Goldsrc engine?

I tried to find some solutions to the subject but I could find just one solution but it is so unnecessarily expensive hardware-wise and it is dependent on deprecated GL libraries that are hard to find (I couldn't) so I'm looking for better ways to do this.

For now, I'm trying to find a workaround with detail textures. But it isn't going so well. Here's an example of my "bright" solution:

Team Psyskallar's Cry Of Fear and HL1 Mod Paranoia supports normal mapping if I'm not wrong. So it is possible, but how? If anyone has knowledge about this topic, please let me know. Thank you in advance. :)

Have a nice day.
