Hi! i am making quite good progress with my beginners map... but some questions which are important to be answered... 1) Why does the program always shut itself down when you try to subtract anything...although i tried out what they said on EFmodcentral or effiles to delte the CAULK texture...it still does it ...which is very annoying and hinders me to go on faster... 2) what happened to the NEBULA class vessel -- vehicle in UberRadiant ...looks rather burned in the front

please please reply...nobody did to my other two threads... thanks Locutus6080 (Resistance is futile)

1. Subtract is a bad, bad, bad tool to use... avoid it at all costs. It works in Uber, but very rarely.. and when it does, it's not doing a nice job.

You should instead try the Clipper tool and manually cut up your brush to what you want. You do this by selecting the brush you want to cut up, press 'x' on your keyboard and click twice on the grid.. you'll see two blue dots (with a '1' and '2' on them).. the brush will be cut along the line that joins these two dots. When you're happy with your cut, press 'Enter' to make the final cut. There are other shortcuts that you can flip the side of the cut, or just 'split' the brush at the cut... look up the menu's to find these options.

2. I think the majority of the ship models used in EF2 were brought in from other ST games, hence they're not all the same quality. And especially since the ships only get a few seconds in-game, it didn't make sense to put a lot of work into getting them to look good. You can try making new, better textures for them if you like.. though I'd imagine that's a long painstaking process.

you can flip the side of the cut

What do you mean by that?

For example, let's say this is your brush: ------------------ | | | | ------------------ You put your two blue points on it to cut: -----------[COLOR=DarkRed]-------[/COLOR] | [COLOR=Navy]|[/COLOR] [COLOR=DarkRed]|[/COLOR] | [COLOR=Navy]|[/COLOR] [COLOR=DarkRed]|[/COLOR] -----------[COLOR=DarkRed]-------[/COLOR] The bolded part shows the section of the brush that will remain after you press 'Enter'.

But suppose you want to keep the other side of the brush, i.e. 'flip' the side that will be cut: [COLOR=DarkRed]-----------[/COLOR]------- [COLOR=DarkRed]|[/COLOR] [COLOR=Navy]|[/COLOR] | [COLOR=DarkRed]|[/COLOR] [COLOR=Navy]|[/COLOR] | [COLOR=DarkRed]-----------[/COLOR]------- Now when you press 'Enter' the other side will get deleted.

In UberRadiant the shortcut for this is the '0' key on your keypad (the zero key on the right side of your keyboard)

I think in GTKRadiant it's ctrl+enter to flip.
