Right so, I'm making a Trigun map! Trigun fans rejoice! Okay, maybe it's not THAT interesting since it's my first REAL map. But still, something nice and simple to start out with. I've got the terrain all set up already from easygen, I've got the lights just about how I want them, I've got a big chunk of a broken SEED ship in the middle with some guns under it, but now come the questions for expert\non nub mappers (Non nub as in, not me) A) Portal sky with a sun, worth it? I'm thinking of trying to add moving clouds like that for extra detail, it'd be cool to have clouds with shadows.. not sure if it's doable. B) Do you think the space dust weather system would be a nice touch for the sand whipping at your feet? If so, how do I go about adding it, I added the weatherzones, and outdoor'd the whole damn map, added the space dust FX box thing, didn't work. Oh, and would it be worth the FPS cut? It's at roughly 50-70 fps right now, so I think it could take the hit. C) mainly for trigun fans, do you think I should add some junk-crosses for an interesting effect? Or maybe a cross punisher stuck in the ground somewhere to accent it? D) Kicking up dust when you walk? I know hoth has a snow kicky uppy thing. I'm pretty sure it's just attached to the shader somehow, is there a similiar effect\shader\texture for sand that does that? E) I only put e-11s in the map, two. It's mainly for gun dueling, I'm not sure how it'd play out with more than say four people, but it could be interesting, think I should add more varity of weapons? I'm trying to avoid the 'heavy weapons whoring' types. maybe thermals.. F) Any other random ideas? I'd love to hear them.
EDIT: forgot to ask the most important thing! How do you add music? I didn't see that in a tutorial, probably just overlooked it.
To make Music I think it has something to do with the WorldSpawn. Some like Key:Music file , Value:Music/You'remusic.MP3.
Hah! Right on the money on that one, thanks! Also does anyone know if there's any rules about the MP3? Such as sampling requirements, must be stereo or mono.. boring stuff.
When you say Trigun, do you mean the monster/mutations from FarCry?
Erm.. Nope! I mean the Anime\Manga series. I've never seen what you're talking about, sounds interesting though.
you said that you have made the plant, but do you also have the western town near buy cus that was he cool part of trigun in my opnion and of cose bullit holes every where
The cross punisher stuck in the ground in an area all by itself would be kinda neat. And I agree that bullet holes pretty much everywhere is the way to go. I just changed my signature from Vash to Gambit. Now I cant show my love of Trigun...:(
Good luck on your map. I'll keep an eye on this thread for its progress.
Jebus0505;3552311FarCry is awesome. This is a Tridgen:
Your graphic settings! ahh!. Cool idea though, these levels of farcry are tough...
Whoa whoa whoaaaa now. As cool as putting an entire generator and an entire town (which I might do in my next map) This one is way smaller than anything that could support that. It's maybe about the size of one small town. It's a pretty straightforward desert with (Now) a random piece of broken ship from the incident (it makes for good shelter, shade, and an awesome place to spawn guns.) I'll be putting in the cross punisher in the 'graveyard' section when I get back from work I suppose. But it's only intended to be a duel\medium sized FFA map. I do have plans of making much larger things though.
