um well to start ....i just started mapping last week and my skys dont work i apply them to a wall and it looks like a wall painted with sky texture.....ok second question i was using the richdiesal tutorial and well i use gtkradiant 1.2.9 and is it different for skies and stuff because i cant make em third um well my water is solid sometimes and other times its not so....help please
It sounds like your using someone else's sky and not one actually from the game in your case.
Whilst editing the map the sky should show as a light colored texture with sky written in it (except for the stars one with the planet on)
As far as your water is concerned, make sure you are useing the right chalk brush to start with, chalk the whole brush then place water texture on top and bottom of it.
Can't really help you with version numbers as I'm not sure of the difference. I have the second release.
There are loads of the swamp water texture but you must selelct the right one in order to get water, I got one of them and it was slippery slime which made you slip!
Now for the skies, Do not pick the normal sky_dn, sky_rt, etc, You must goto the "textures" menu then load "skies" after that click on the texture labeled "yavin" and place it around your map where you want the sky to be then keep it seleted and goto "Select" Then "CSG" click on "CSG_make_hollo".
This will give you the yavin sky if you want the bespin one then replace yavin with the texture labeled bespin,
Just replace yavin with the texture labled the sky you want from the game.
By the way the texture will look as tho it cannot load it in the editor most probebly.
well wutya know only the 1s tha dont load work........
