File->New, File->Import. Import the old map, degroup it.
thank you thank you thank you thank you. That just saved me so much time that i can't thank you enough. I thought i had to redo the hours of work i had done fixing up our clan map. woo hoo. When i put models in they don't come out solid. what di i need to do in order to make the solid? I havn't seen an option. I'm going to search the fourms after i post and if i find the answer i'll just post here and let ya know so you don't do extra.
Either place brushes with system/physics_clip, or use "spawnflags" "6" on the model - I warn you though, only use the latter on terrain models, because you're highly likely to fuck up your map otherwise.
I think i'm using a older version of gtk radiant. If i upgrade to the newest one would it delete all the stuff i've done so far? also what kind of features does it have? Also i searched for teleporter help and i found it but i am doing something wrong. I can select 2 things at the same time....Yeah i'm a n00b. Second full week of mapping so i'm still trying to learn this stuff.
Why do you think you're using an older version? 1.5 won't be out for a while.. Also, map files are saved seperately, so you're not losing anything. Selecting two objects is done by holding down Shift, then clicking the first object, and doing the same for the next one, without pressing Escape in between. :)
Thanks i was not letting go of shift between each thing i wanted to select. Now my teleporters are working well. I have a quick NPC question. How do i make them respawn after they die? PS Sorry to be such a noob :nodding:
Respawning is easy, there are quite some threads on here, some of which are quite specific, I think you'll be able to find what you need there.
ok i searched and fourn threads but nothing really explained what i needed. i've attempted to do it with a little fooling around but so far no luck. I want to make a place where people can spawn npcs at the push of a button. I saw some threads about this but nothing really went through the complete process. I also want to add sound to my flame jets but when following the toutorial it didn't work. Can you possibley point me in the right direction for finding a toutorial to make npcs spawn by button? Also can someone tell me a good way to choose key words to search by so i may get better results and not have to bug people for help on things that are already posted.
