Mapping Tutorials

#26
If you'd like to make it with these videos to the main site, I'd honestly leave out all tauntings. Unprofessional, and doesn't get us anywhere.
I'd also suggest you to do as less system specific stuff as you can.

basic outline of first video
-- where to get mapping tools

Good idea. Tell that this tutorial video will be about setting up netradiant on linux, with precompiled binaries.
Save git madness for a later video. You can tell that you won't cover that right now, but will do in another one.

-- extracting zips ? (I sure hope everyone knows how to do that)
Don't mock here anybody, just tell that on most systems extracting a zip works oob.

-- putting pk3 thing in data dir

Totally wrong habit, especially in linux. You have your home directory, and the hidden .xonotic directory there also. You have to keep your Xonotic install clean, that's why ALWAYS put anything in ~/.xonotic/data

-- compiling radaint (I think ill set up a fresh vmware machine for this) just realized I am actually running a bit low on disk space ... maybe I don't think having a third copy of xonotic (and kde based linux) on my system is a good idea ... I will briefly go over it instead

You should focus on installing from binary here, not compiling from sources. That should go into a second video, with full step by step instructions on how to use xonotic git, ask for write access etc.

-- running radiant (again taunt windows users on how ugly theirs is)
No taunting again Tongue

-- end of video 1

precompiled bianaries??? is that a new thing ? ... I have always needed to compile netradiant ...only windows had precompiled stuffs

ok... i'll leave out the taunting ...

I wasn't going to touch git


wait ... I can put stuff in my .xonotic dir?????? instead of the main data dir???

... actually now that I think about it that makes perfect sense ... seeing as that is where I save my maps ...

btw .... anybody know the .xonotic file paths for windows and linux?

In My Documnets in Windows, it's in Saved Games/xonotic something like that I believe, on GNU/Linux it's ~/.xonotic/data

Actually it's ~/.xonotic/data on *NIX. That includes Linux, *BSD, Solaris, Darwin / Mac OS.

FreeBSD: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/po...s/xonotic/
And Nexuiz run on OpenSolaris successfully at one point it seems, http://blog.sartek.net/2008/04/nexuiz-on...laris.html

And of course, Mac OS builds are released officially on this site.

You should PM C.Brutail about this, since he seemed to know... I think?

Compile the git version instead in the tutorial, it's the only way I've been able to get NetRadiant to work.

git is messy .... and difficult to work with ... and huge

however the mapping support comes from the autobuild .... which is close to git ... compileing the version in that worked for me

I thought about writing a small article about creating duel maps (after I finished my current map) with a very easy "method" I found out (if I can say so), just saying... Tongue

Guys, if you find any important web pages/videos, ask tZork to post them here: http://forums.xonotic.org/showthread.php?tid=64

Or maybe you could merge the threads?

no vids yet

... however I have started on the wiki

http://dev.xonotic.org/projects/xonotic/...ating_Maps


It needs a lot of polish ... so dont fret about it

however any help with specifics (like mac and windows stuff) would help

the old Creating_Maps page has been moved to Old_Creating_Maps

the french page hasn't been touched ... ( and i dont plan too ... i dont speak french)

Obviously this is not the final version yet, but I want to make sure of something. hutty, you *really* need to drop all of the "..."s in your tutorial and replace them with proper punctuation. Also, use capital letters! I don't mind it at all on the forum, but for long texts like this one it's really tiring on the eye and mind.

It's also advised not to use hard line breaks inside of paragraphs. Only use double line breaks (to start a new paragraph), never a single one (starting a new line inside a paragraph makes no sense.)
