Can objects (crates) be created for H2V? Or am I stuck building everything in Max? Right onto my map?

Thanks blaz, that's exactly what I was looking for, and that's retarded, haha. Now I got a couple more questions, what about how to create particle effects (rain/snow) or grav-lifts? I know they are two separate things, but I'm curious about how it's done. Especially the grav-lifts since they are placed in Sapien not Max.

rain/snow is a pain. You need to create a new weather system with kornman's guerilla and mess with the settings for about a week till you get it right. Never messed with grav lifts because there are a few stock with the EK.

The prob with the grav-lifts is that the preset ones aren't strong enough for my Sandtrap. Where can I get kornmans guerilla?

Edit: I found the file, I didn't realize anyone had created tools for H2V, all I hear about is how you can't make content.

Ok new question for you, in H2V is there a way to change the decals that come off of a shader (i.e. you shoot sand it looks like sand coming up instead of just smoke?)

Also, I'm making ferns using a decorator shader template. I created an alpha channel in the TIFF file within photoshop, will Guerilla automatically recognize the alpha channel or do I need to use a template that I apply the shader in.

Okay decals? you mean material effects? that is controlled in the shader. If you change your material name to hard/metal/solid it will react like solid metal, if you change it to a soft material name it will act like a soft surface ect.... i do not believe you can make new ones, i've just tried modifying one and had some but not much luck.

You must use a shader template with an alpha channel. also. if you made a bitmap make sure to use the porper settings in the bitmap and recompile the .tiff. make sure it is an alpha channel and above that it can't be a normal color key transperancy. scroll down 1. than recompile the tif.
