http://corktooth.dyndns.org/~stu_l_...es/battlefield/ Basically, I'm new to BattleCraft, and this is the beginning (VERY very beginning) of a helicopter-centric level. VERY beginning. In fact, there's only one object in there! However... Well, I tried playing my map, and unfortunately, it doesn't seem like there are any spawn points... Aren't they put there automatically? Soldier spawns? Thanks, Stu

I am having the same problem with spawn points. I put in a control point for each base and I have various soldier spawn points coming off them. When I go to test my level they don't appear so I can check out some of my other stuff on the map. Can anyone help me out here?

Is the problem, The way i see it your saying that when u put the soldier spawn points in the map and then try to start u cannot start or is what your saying no vehicles start??? If you mean the soldiers ...They wont apear when u test the level, That will happen if u try it in single player mode...if its the vehicles you have to make sure that you have them in your object spawn tab..then fill in the required fields..Make sure you save the level before you go into the game because you wont see anymore ingame then the last try..Hope this is of any help mate..Also when you start up battlecraft, Try this..Open level, Then open a real map that is ingame already..When it is open, Look around and see how they set up there spawn objects and vehicles, if you want to modify an existing level MAKE SURE YOU "COPY LEVEL TO" its in the file tab on the top left..THEN MAKE SURE YOU OPEN THE MAP YOU HAVE JUST COPIED!!!!!do NOT use the original map or when you goto play multiplayer the original wont work... Let me know how you get on lads..Its a great thing when you finally get it working .To me its a form of art..Your expressing your imagination in a fully 3d arena..:nodding: Hope it works..

Hey I'm new to map making but! i have read the whole manual online about battlecraft vietnam. I need some help on how you properley place trees, grass, bushes and other growth on the map!! I need to know which is the correct way of having a helicopter or other object spawn correctly placed on the map, should it look like the model of the helicopter , because sometimes mine looks like a GREY BOX on the floor! And does anyone know how to add lighting!? and I DO HAVE that same problem with the spawn points that they don't work! CAN ANYONE REPLY AND HELP?

Hello lads..

Right we'l start from the begining. 1st step is to deleat the default main spawn point's, These are mostly placed at the begining for you but they take ages to get in the right position.So just goto the left side of your screen to the list of spawn points and deleat the US and VC spawn points. Now you are free to start them again to where you want them. YOU HAVE to name them correctly.Then add your soldier spawn points to these ,Same as for your vehicle spawn points. ( p.s )...You can make your own height maps or do a search for them in google...TO overwrite the old ones.(using photoshop) open the .Raw file thats in the battlecraft folder and then copy and paste your new height map over the top of that.Flatten the layers and then save as ..IT HAS TO BE CALLED..Heightmap.raw..You must overwrite ..Save it to the folder again. Then import the new height map in battlecraft.Voila.. To add trees or faunage...you can do this 2 ways. You can add them manually using the list of cached objects..Just add a new one for each different type of vegitation you want on the map..Once picked.If you want to add a hole load of trees and shit you can goto generate vegitation. Once you have all those sorted, You island should look pretty sweet..Same as to add static objects to your map.Just add new cached object to the map. The way to test the map and make sure you have both side running, Just set up one as a mock main spawn and just concentrate on one side or the other with the objects spawn.E.g..Set up the us main spawn first or the vc.Just make sure that before you test the map.You have both US and VC Main spawn points on or the map will end straight away.. If you need more help please let me know.. Hope this helps for now. N@
