i need two respawning swoops in my map and i don't know how to create them. i know the respawning thingy but i need the swoops to do it on. please help
I'm assuming you're using GTKRadient. First of all, create an NPC_Vehicle (if you can't do this, create an entity with key 'classname' set to 'npc_vehicle'.). Then press N to bring up the entity properties window and create a new field: 'NPC_Type' set to the name of any ingame vehicle from the ext_data/vehicles folder in in assets1.pk3. In your case, this should be swoop_mp or swoop_mp2 (two different colors), however you can also use swoop (an ugly untextured swoop) or swoop_red. Make sure to place them well off the ground (the bottom does not touch the ground) or else your swoops will be stuck in the ground and people who get on will not be able to move. I'm assuming you know how to set them to respawn (I certainly don't). That's about it. Enjoy!
Just goto http://www2.ravensoft.com/users/mmajernik/misctuts/respawningvehicles.htm and that should help you getting them to respawn.
cheers can you also tell me how to create map objects e.g rocks trees, in the yavin theme. thanks
Right click in Radiant, and select misc>misc_model Then a screen will open, there you can select your model Go to map_objects/yavin and there you can find yavin models
cheers i thought you had to create them!?! i didn't realise it was that easy
Yeah, but make sure you put a clip texture around them, or else you'll be able to walk through.
how do you clip? do you just highlight and use the clip_model texture?
Black Hunterhow do you clip? do you just highlight and use the clip_model texture?
no its a texture like chaulk. its in system directory. i prefer making chaulk around them makes no diference since people dont use weapons.
Or, you oculd use the solid key. Not as reliable, but still a viable option in SP.
