For mapping in jka you will need GtkRadiant version 1.4 or 1.5. Download it from this site: http://qeradiant.com/?data=files&files_dir=1 For making realistic terrain you will need easygen but i don't know where to get it. I don't have it too coz all sites with this giving 404 not found error when trying to download. Can someone send me it?

i map for jk2 and occaisionally jka. Trust me, use 1.4. 1.5 is no where near stable enough to be used. Honestly, no one uses 1.5. For more usefull hints, deffinately don't click the master sticky. Especially if you want tutorials and links to modding programs. Theres deffinately none of that in the master sticky.

1.5.0 is FAR more powerful than 1.4.0, and also far more stable. You're judging 1.5.0 by the earlier builds, and sadly, you're gravely mistaken in that judgement.

I sincerely hope you were being sarcastic there. :rolleyes:

The Master Sticky's Tutorials & Tools list - yes, no tutorials and/or modding programs, indeed....


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

No, i'm not mistaken. Brush manipulation is incredibly screwed up. Unless you enjoy clipping all brushes so that they're 3 sidded and then manipulating them for terrain and varied brushes, you're wayyy better off with 1.5. 1.5 Does however, have a much much much better rotation and scale system. If you're looking to make a block-non-varied-map, 1.5 would be the program to go to. Or if you use FPS waisting patch meshes for everything, again 1.5 would be your man.
