What type of shaders are you using?


shader_transparent_chicago and one shader_transparent_water
Edited by ChBgt909 on Aug 26, 2013 at 09:30 AM

Keyword:Transparent

Maybe the shader types aren't right for what you're doing...

This bothers me just a little. If you look, the sun is on the back side of the pillars, yet the light is clearly shining on the front of them. The shadows are in a different direction, so although it looks real, the sun being misplaced kinda ruins it for me.

hmm, yeah, you're right, i was thinking the same thing but i wasn't going to fix it... i will do it now :)

and yeah... about the problem i said... i already said that i used shader_transparent_chicago and only one shader_transparent_water... how do i render this in order? i wanted to make the regions like this but it doesn't work... what do i do??

Mesh closest to the bsp should be a lower number, (example water plane) mesh furthest from bsp should be higher numbers.

Those planets should be the highest, while those cloud planes (I assume that is what the mass of planes are in the middle) should probably be the lowest, depending on how you want them to render.

Also, for whatever reason I almost never use the second digits soley to order render priority. I usually go by tens.

00.dome
10.moon
15.clouds
23.water

Dunno if that would make a difference, but I usually do it just in-case I decide to add or remove meshes from the sky to avoid having to completely rename all the regions if something doesn't fit somewhere.


well i tried it just now and nothing... in fact... you can check in the gbxmodel tag if there is any region and nope, the tool doesn't even recognize any attempt to add regions in the model or jms...i'm obviously missing something and if i don't find any solution i'm gonna keep the sky as it is... thanks for the help tho i really appreciate it, i'm gonna release this map soon i'm really sorry for taking too long

Take all the time you need to complete this map with your most prominent efforts. Don't release a map that is even 0.01% incomplete. I think we would all like to wait for a "perfect" map with (little to) no eyesores, bugs or glitches at all.

Have you tried using a newer jms exporter that supports regions? I'm pretty sure the original bluestreak made by theghost doesn't support regions, but the later ones released by others do.

What exporter are you using? Also are you actually selecting the faces/polygons and then naming the regions?

I haven't used blitz, but only 1.0.2/1.0.3 of bluestreak exports with regions.



~EDIT~

NEVERMIND!! i just found out that it was the exporter! i tried using the one you told me, bluestreak and it worked! now i have working regions! thanks waffles i really appreciate your help!!! :D

Well guys, here are the quick changes i made! and i gotta say that i'm quite happy with the results!

it still needs some adjustment in color with some textures as well as some fixes on the model but this is pretty much what i want to keep!

I agree with you in that some color adjustments (especially the mountains) would help a lot. But otherwise, this is amazing, great job! I think this is definitely your greatest work of art so far :D

Now that you think of it, I can't really recall any Halo 1-3 map set in the early-mid-afternoon; this should definitely spice things up and feel even newer in gameplay, too.

I'll be looking forward to your release! ^^

WOW!! that's all i can say!

this is amazing! incredible! yeah, i agree with you, the mountains in the distance as well as the clouds and terrain below need different color, less blue, a bit of redish/orange to fit the horizon color and whatever you are going to change in the model becuase i don't see any need to do so but hey! as long as you improve i can't complain! keep it up!

the mountains remind me of forge world, in a good way though. might try adding a few colors that aren't blue to add a nice color range. just my 2 cents, keep up the good work, and i love u

UPDATES... IT'S URGENT

Well guys... i'm sorry to say this but someone broke into my house and stole many of my things....... including my laptop, which had ALL my information, including my games and tags.. so there's no way to recover the map and is lost...

SO... BECAUSE OF THIS THIEF, MY PROJECT IS OFFICIALLY CANCELLED AS I DON'T HAVE ANY BACKUP (THEY STOLE MY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE TOO) AND EVERYTHING IS LOST SO THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO BUT GET A NEW LAPTOP, GET A NEW COPY OF HALO AND 3DS MAX AND START THE MAP ALL OVER AGAIN FROM SCRATCH...

I'M SORRY TO DISAPPOINT YOU AND HOPEFULLY I'M GONNA RELEASE SOMETHING NEW PRETTY SOON

If the police arrest the thief in enough time, you can recover any files on your computer (even if they are deleted, but if they're overwritten, then you'll end up with broken files and such-[this video explains what I mean http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5s4-Kak49o]). That only would work if you were to get your stuff back. Hope everything goes well for you and that you could somehow get all your stuff back.

NO........... NO.... WHY?! Terrible news!! Damn, that's sad, man! Makes me remember when some idiot broke into my house too and stole my father's laptop. It wasn't exactly expensive but it was kinda new and had some important files...

Sorry to hear that! If you ever gave the map to anyone thats probably your best bet at getting the files back (if the police dont find the theif), as you could rip the map and get them back, at least for something instead of starting from scratch.

hmm, no i never give my maps to anyone until it's actually released, you know, to prevent leaks so no i can't recover this map, however i can recover some tags from my previous maps like core or imposing so that's something at least

the only reason i have internet access right now is because of my cellphone (i wasn't home when this happened) so yeah, the police made an investigation yesterday looking for prints and all that so hopefully someone is gonna be arrested lol, but I already lost any hope of getting my things back... It's gonna take a while before I can get a new laptop... a laptop good enough to run 3d programs and games.. so yeah

stay tuned for any news and once again, I'm sorry, I should have finished this map as soon as possible instead of slacking off :/

don't feel bad man, life happens. but if u happen to find i'd like to volunteer to personally kick their ash(es). at least u learned things that can hopefully make the next map even better (hopefully with sauce and bumps, just sayin').

My sympathies, man.

Look on the brightside: the thief wasn't able to take from you the most valuable thing from the map - the experience you gained. Your next project will come together much quicker and with much less troubleshooting, all because of the knowledge you acquired from working on that map.

Best of luck to you

Well guys it seems I'm getting a new laptop this month it's gonna be Lenovo
and this is what it has:

the model is: Lenovo ideapad y400-6057-od

intel core i7-3630
6gb of ram
1 tb of hard drive
windows 8 (don't like it tho)
nvidia gt 650m (the store didn't have this info, the laptop says it has nvidia but doesn't say which version, I looked up on the Internet and this nvidia is the one this laptop is supposed to have but im not sure, so yeah)

so... how good is this to run high poly models in 3ds max and high res video games?

Honestly, the only problem you will encounter (rarely, mind you) is that windows 8 takes up about 2-3 gb of ram (I have the same specs as you except 8gb ram). Other than that, you'll be fine (Win8 actually isn't as bad as I thought it would be, as long as you stick to using the desktop ui)

yeah, no doubt that a desktop computer is way better, but that laptop I had wasn't only for gaming, it was also for college, to work, etc

I need something not only for gaming but also to carry around and use in college

the day my laptop was stolen from my house it was an exception as it was one of the few days where I didn't need to take my laptop with me

well I've made some research and it seems that this laptop will be more than enough for my needs so I'm happy with that :D
