For both, it also helps with weather and ambient sound. Halo CE only allows a limit amount of BSP triangles. So you can control to have most of the map not rendered by deviding the map into clusters. You can set up each cluster having different weather and ambient sound.
You know when it comes to making maps how many triangle can it hold?
The hek tutorial recommends a multiplayer level to be roughly 10 k polygons. Per scene it recommends 50k triangles. Although all of this can be debated.
There are of course maps that exceeds the limit. Shaders, effects, textures all count towards the maps performance as well. However, in halo's case the tris limit has always been the issue for most level designers. Which is why portals might come in handy.
A technique that stops portions of the bsp from rendering when it is not in the pov of the player. And lots of other stuff. It's a good first attempt, but you seriously need to revise how you spend your triangles and where you spend them :)
Hey, I'm quite interested in doing an interview and maybe show some of my old, old stuff off that have not been finished. As well as maybe talk a bit about the halomaps community. Expect my submission to roll in soon :)
Quote: --- Original message by: sparkyI would have to agree with Higuy, a bit late though. A slicker,simplistic design gives the illusion of being easy to use. But then again, it does look similar to Guerilla.And I can remember the confusion using Guerilla for the first time (Or any part of hek for that matter) If you are looking to streamline modding for halo, the design might be something you should consider innovating.
The HEK was not sold. Do you think it looks professional? I don't think so. I think how it looks and whether it is sold or whether it looks professional are completely unrelated.
Anyway, don't listen to me.
I am changing the interface anyway from what I showed in the screenshots.

I like how this thread is named after a Greek god.
It feels there is an autistic vibe in this thread.
Does it still have or going to have the same features as this: http://macgamingmods.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=13842&sid=cc841cce73cb455c2c78a1187413ea59
? If so, just copy paste it next time:) I took the liberty to do some reasearch, but the earliest topics about anything is from 2012. Not to mention the things that show up on top of googling "Sparky halo zeuz", is not of any interest at all.
I am just curious, why don't you just let everyone know what it is? Some pictures, or some documentation that is understandable by the general public? Or is it still just a vision?
No one is critisizing you, as little as you are trying to encourage people to whatever you think you are doing. Stop running around in a circle of fancy words and bs and cut to the chase. What is Zeus? Pics plz.
You posted on gearbox, but not modacity or halomods? Well I guess the most relevant of the two would be halomods (Seeing as modacity is not a very active place anymore). The halo section on Gearbox forums has been inactive for more than a half decade now.
I have seen your posts regarding Zeus as well. But the actual properties of the program or the editing kit has eluded me. It's like you have been sharing something when in fact it is nothing.
I don't know you, so I am not going to judge you (Something an overwhelming majortiy on these forums wouldn't refrain from doing) But for future references, how about giving people some conclusive information about what you are developing instead of posting under the assumption that people will revere you as a god just because you have a skillset that allows you to develop something that is useful.
tl;dr Basically what Higuy said, but slightly elaborated.

Honestly, Why do you even bother with the trolls mate?
I wouldn't call it a cliché, maybe more of the lines that its a story that already has already been done in a game released 2 years ago (Halo 4 came 2012 right?) and in the halo novels. I'm glad you revised it though. I won't be on later 'today', since I live in Europe, I assume you live on the opposite side of the planet. Will reply when I wake up instead.

So something in the lines of forerunner planet that is hollow, and a spartan (or a team of spartans get stuck there)? Because then you are making Halo 4 ce :) /jk
No but seriously, I expect there to be some great things from this actually. Even though some of the halo 4 tags aren't very impressive, I see some potential in your team. I might still be interested in helping out. Though, in-between work and other activities in life, i've had too much trouble getting back into modeling. Contact me on xfire and i'll send you my work.
Yes it is very 'Hush, Hush' for no reason. Like, whatsup with the secrecy these days? Are you afraid of getting some constructive critique?
Quote: --- Original message by: X12_1992 You quite specifically said it does bother you here :
I play on easy, usually to learn the game and the maps, or to admire the new additions in a more forgiving atomosphere, then i play on normal. So yeah, people play on easy. stop assuming they dont.
Oh, and apparently since when i first played i console commanded it without setting a difficulty (so it would be on normal) it was still pretty hard for normal difficulty, atleast compared to the original Halo's normal difficulty. So yeah, its a challenge.
I never said it really bothered me, it just didnt make sense to me. thats all.
Quote: --- Original message by: X12_1992 Which means it bothers you. Might also point out what someone else said. It's a trivial issue. Get with the developers decision. Even if it doesn't line with what you feel makes 'sense' or is a logical decision.
How is it on purpose? It seems like a huge error, if its normal, use the normal logo. And its not game ruining, but its pretty annoying. I mean, why would they use the easy logo for the normal difficulty, yet still use the heroic logo for heroic difficulty. makes no sense. why would you skip from no swords to two swords.

Portent is also an excellent example, of how easy it so portal a map that has a great layout. Which it does.
Doesn't look like a lighting issue. But then it could be anything, that included. Try what he said, faulty smoothing groups could be it. Or some uvws that are mismatched. Try making surfaces planar as well.
Quote: --- Original message by: Altearose I think it will go over most peoples heads. Even older ones.
I am 100% serious about this and some old members will understand.
You should focus on this. It shows more potential than most things this community produces.
Quote: --- Original message by: OrangeJuice I will relate you to that. Got no fingers left to be chopped off. Orunges.
Not how I use poof,
it's an expression of "there! it's complete!"
Never relate me to Katana, or how katana decided to use poof, or I will chop three of your fingers off with the dull edge of a butter knife.

Yeah, i always thought that the only two things that avalanche shared was the snow theme, and (Sort of) the shape. Haven't spent too much time in avalanche, being that it's not even on my top 10 list of halo maps. Now sidewinder on the other hand plays splendidly. It definitely needs to be modernized. Danger canyon should have been on that list. What a shame.

For the OS version, it would be nice if there were switches affecting things like the barriers above, allowing players to directly modify the flow of the map. (Recall Halo 3's 'Longshore').
I don't think you need OS to make that happen...? (but yeah, having active changes to the map like that would be really cool, actually)
