minideck_v4r4

#1
After yet another retexturing round (it does make sense to use a single texture pack for most of the textures) i present to you the umpteenth iteration of minideck

There are missing textures.

These round things which pretends sniping are a good idea but they look weird.

The slime is too dark and too opaque.

The teleporter is cheap man, you can do it better!

Missing bot-support.

Some better minor texture alignment here and there.

The map is a real performance killer. VIS-optimize it!


These are all bad things I could remember, anything else is pretty good! Wink

Looking good, will try it later today.

Some comments/suggestions based on the that screeny:
[Image: foPPVl.jpg]

red: high contrast (darker or lighter then the floor) trim's facing upwards. This helps players spot edges in time and helps visuals too.

blue: variation, cut up/add some different panels to the walls. Variate the size/shape/colour of those pipes a bit. large repeating surfaces and multiple precisely duplicate objects always look off to the human eye.

tZork: Thanks for the comments. Is there an easy way to create trims for bevel CAPS? I mean, it's simple enough for normal brushes (one can use the clipper), but I avoided doing trims for the bevels cause the only way way I'd know would be using patch meshes..

its a bit more tricky indeed. basically you need to create the curved trim part manually (make a new patch, wrangle it into shape in vert edit mode), then take the 'old cap' and re-size it to fit on 'inside' of that new patch. i can make some screenies of how i do it tomorrow if that description is to shady Tongue

tZork. Nah, that's how I would have done it. I just wondered if there was a simpler way Big Grin

no, no real simple way. at least none i know of. otoh since maps tend to use same/similar sized bevel's in many places, its mostly copypasta after the first one.

Played on this map yesterday and I find it really awesome. The only problem I had that it was so dark in the corridors that I barely saw what I was walking on (high details). I had to brighten my monitor to play properly. However, when I was rendering a demo into a movie later using the ultra settings it seemed it was ok - strange.

edit:
Scrap that - now I'm watching the movie and it's as dark as it was while I was playing. I need to get darker curtains :-P.
