I changed the Gate texture and stopped the size increase/decrease and the rotation animation.
I'm working on making the puddles resolution better right now. I think i can do it with out making it hard on lower end computers.
If I could a hold of the gate itself in MS3D I could retexture the whole thing more realistically.
so bassicly you're just making a puddle wormhole. which could be used for even the transwarp gate if the SODSCALE is edited.
the puddle is nice looking.
How are you doing this? I've tried doing this but to no avail...
At first I just took my Puddle Texture and replaced all the Borgate Textures. Of course, now that I think about it that might not have been such a smart idea. Then I went into the ODF and messed with the Open/Close Scales until it fit into the gate. Then I turned off the animation so it would sit still. But I dont like the transparent affect. Now I've made my own Puddle SOD and created a much better looking puddle and added a lightmap to it.
Much better, if I do say so myself I still want to retexture the gate but i guess i'll have to aske Lord Agros or make me own gate.
Looks great. Major Payne over at AFC has released both versions of the stargate (SG-1 and Atlantis) in 3ds format, you may want to try there.
This is a totally noob question but, what is AFC?
Sweet texture and great work! Now if you could only make the "splash" effect...
LOL, I like it, if I had more time (work permitting:uhoh: ) I would have done a far better gate texture, I basically ripped off a standard cardie texture for the chevron locks:deal: made some unrealistic blue glow to the chevrons (this was a time thing believe me I would have much preferred to finish the high quality ones I included but their not right yet:uhm: I will re-make soon with better textures & and Atlantis gate:naughty: , but I really like the wormhole you have done, we may even do this one together:beer: . in my next release I will add sound:D , shame milkshake wont do sod animation or I could have made it dial up.:( Edit: I have just submitted an updated version of this file i have cleaned up the sod and finilised the correct textures, it is now in ZIP format and once it is picked up by the ace team at armada files you can try it out any suggestions will be taken aboard and done, at thsi stage the atlantis gate is a bit of work but i will work on it next check out teh real 3d model from the show @ http://www.thescifiworld.net/img/wallpapers/stargate/diston/diston_32_1600x1200.jpg now thats what i want a copy of.... oh well will just have to make my own - Lord Agro:cya: :o im off to bed 10:44 pm here and i have work at 6:00am
If i had software capable of animation i would make the splash effect. I wouldn't be able to do the dial thing but i could totally do the splash. I'm glad you like it and i look forward to seeing your next gate :)
i have finished the pegasis gate im still not 100% happy with the star shevrons but there verry hard to do unlike the simple geometric shapes on the milky way gate still i may go back and improve this check it out i will submit it to the website soon, next mod sound and wormhole event Edit: After finding THIS refrence to the stargate i am more confident not ALL the peagsis gates have star shevrons some use geometric shapes http://www.u-blog.net/maniaseriesetfilms/img/stargate-atlantis-17_1_.jpg so i have remade the stargate to fit this... looks better in my opinyon
