duel_waterfront

Postby ZombieswithJetpacks » Sat Sep 28, 2013 12:09 am

So developement of duel_waterfront is slowly coming along. I now have a custom modeler working on some custom models for me, so alot of this map will be custom textures and models :D Anyway, I have a few pictures and a few problems I need help with. For now though, show off time. To get the full image please click on it:

Cliffs and Lighthouse in dev

Image
Boardwalk and building. I am having an odd issue with those textures were the missing texture checkers over top the the textures as you can see. Whats the fix?

Another question I have is what water texture did you use to create the ocean effect in the temple and what particle effect created the ocean waves?

The checker boards normally means a missing texture. Check your vmt to see what normal map it is pointing to.

Ironically enough, the texture with the checkerboard problem is an official texture. I'm not sure what I need to do to make it work. Also the windows in that one building are acting strange as well, as they flicker from bright to dark for no reason depending on your distance from them and fade out all together eventually.

Also random question. What scene would you rather clash blades next to?

A beach were a coast guard boat is pulled up on shore to find many bags of drugs washed up on the beach (prolly invent a cheesy name for the drugs to like venom or surge).

Or a beach were a body is found washed up on shore and the police are investigating.

I can not decide which one sounds more awesome a scene to fight next to.

yes I have a few cubemaps pointing to the windows below the building and a few other miscellaneous ones. The windows seen in the building are actually multiple brushes tied to func_details. I have yet to point cubemaps at the textures themselves so I'll give that a try.

Really liking the map, any luck with the cubemap/specular/normal map issue on the building?

Still in Dev Map Available

Postby ZombieswithJetpacks » Wed Oct 16, 2013 9:19 pm

While the map is far from complete, it is playable and not completely hideous. Please give it a try and if you find any glitches let me know. Also comments or suggestions for the arenas would be appreciated.

How do I get it to work? it's not BSP. I tried putting it in both the Workshop, and Maps folder, and tried to change via the console, but could not.

So I done goofed. When I created the folders for the vpk I forgot to add materials for the custom boardwalk folder full of custom textures. I have created a new and better download and you should use that one from know on.

However there is a problem and is that the vpk wont install itself. Termi got it working by putting it into the addons folder though im not entirely sure how. I'm not sure why the vpk won't work but it should work if you put it in there. Any suggestions?

Want to get it running on my server, but can't.

It's not BSP, so...

I can't see any way to get this to work.

Ok, I figured it out: I used a VPK extractor and just placed the BSP in the map folder. BAM!

Yay glad you got it working! :D Are the textures showing up?

Also for anyone who would know, i am trying to create custom overlays but they are not working. I have tga files with black background layers and then the main image layer. I save them as a vtf file then create a vmf. Afterwards I edit the vmf in notepad so it says:

"LightmappedGeneric"
{
"$basetexture" "boardwalk/overlay_graffitiA"
"%keywords" "overlay"
"$translucent" 1
"$decal" 1
"$decalscale" 0.25
}

However in hammer they still show up with a solid color background. I have tried using white, black, but can not get the files to be transparent for the life of me.

Ok so even when rendered it is not transparent. I have tried every method of creating vtfs and vmf and have tried different bits of code, none of which work. This leads me to the assumption that I am not preparing my TGA files correctly. Anyone know how im supposed to do this, been trying to make these bloody overlays for hours.

Are you saving the transparency texture in the alpha channel?
Check these two sites out.

I think you mean vmt not vmf.

Can you please do a proper BSP file in the future?

I also have to upload the materials one at a time to my server - which I find very annoying.

This VPK format is not proper for BS at current.

I thought I had made a proper bsp. I followed the rules of creating a vpk to the letter (on the second attempt haha) and in the map was my bsp file.

Anyway, after a long day of trying to make these overlays work, they do :D

Also, I really wish the tournament wasn't when I worked :( Eh, that's life.

Yes, but this is not a game that accepts VPKs easily. You need to manually create an add-ons folder.

I uploaded it to my server, and while it would load, it loads without the materials.

I will create it properly next time, I simply was ignorant of the process. However at this point it's progressing so fast I'm just going to wait till all that the map needs is it's custom models.

Also I have 3 new screens to share. With that in mind, Flux, I want to take you to the Pork House. Thats right, I turned your name into a night club. Feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel the Looooooooooooooooooove!

Yes I definitally will build an ffa version. But it will probably still have alot of invisible walls as my map relies on perspective tricks (ie, if you walk behind the buildings the geometry becomes unsafe to the point were you could fall of the map)

So I finally got FTP Access and properly uploaded the matierals - and yet, it's white for everyone still...


It does not happen with my friends maps, though.


Finally got it working by adding the materials to the BSP itself. Problem solved, people are now enjoying your map on my server. (Used PAKRat)

Can't wait for the finish product.
