Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Common Debug.txt errors. May 16, 2015 08:58 AM (Total replies: 56)

i have a "water plan" but it worked in precedent version, maybe i commit an error i didn't see. i checked materials and didn't see non attributed material on a face it's probably about my water plan.
i will try to find what is wrong. hope it's not a big problem ( i work with mesh and poly and switch often from one to the other or i maybe put the wrong material one my water )
thanks for help, i will try it right now.

update:
someone see something wrong there ?

my last unwrap exercice:



tried to weld vertice for hide seams.


like this way, it's fast and it works, i use a similar method on gimp.
we can use the stamp tool to work on middle of the pic, it reduce some color variation who can be too visible on the texture.
thanks for sharing that with photoshop.

i search a result similar to halo 2 delta texture but with better res.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Texture hand painting May 2, 2015 08:24 AM (Total replies: 4)

hi all,

i search for advice about texture hand painting.

Here my 1st attemp with gimp 2 to make an old wall texture :




What is the best program to do that and the best way ? i just used multiple brush and color variantion but my texture looks poor.

I think the UVWs needs some work, the unwrapping of the textures should follow clean patterns in some parts. Keeping the creation lines from this helps to place the texture better.

If I was you, I would have prepared the parts that are going to be repeated throughout the level, unwrap them, and just copy and paste elements, then weld everything.


yes, that's the reason why i don't want release now, i will try to fix that, and i have noticed other uv error.

for chillout i did something years ago on halo combat evolved:




and a snowy beaver creek:



But before remaking this on ce there 2 project i want to do: a stargate map and a "the floods" remake with a friend.

why not, im not sure they can be interested by my work. if they prupose it will be a pleasure to work with them, they have the same vision of map remaking.

i tried to use z'team tagset but tool said something about "128 mb limit" and failed to convert scenario.
map size is 58 675 ko with just scnery tags, i can't use custom weapons if i want to pass the scen.

Halo CE General Discussion » |map] damnation delta Apr 16, 2015 12:40 PM (Total replies: 36)

maybe i can make my water better:



i think blue is not the best color for this map, i would a green water, tried in guerilla but it d'ont affect the shader:



the problem is the blue reflection .

time to kill time.

well i think the bsp geometry is done:





the code i will use for lightmap: tool lightmaps levels\test\damnationdelta\damnationdelta damnationdelta 1 0.08

a better lightmap code exist ? result with this is pretty good but im ready for a 1 hour rendering.

last time lightmap was 40 minutes rendering.

For the tagset i think i will use the zteam tag pack and maybe a custom character. im wondering if a OS version can be made with the map.

thanks man, i was lost on the tagset :). halo classic tagset is much more complex what i tought.

i will add a cave behind the water fall, that's something interesting for gameplay i think particulary for ctf a place where we can be hide with the flag.

oh thanks i download this now. passed the map on sapien: it can be nice, like "the pit sky" by conscar will keep it. it's a bit dark but i think it can be a nice map.

I think that this map need a lot more polys for detail.... please use the h3 foundry tags and HD delta textures.


currently tris count is 3258, i will increase poly when i will be sure of the denfenitive geometry. i use halo 2 delta texture, will work on that next week with darksoldier.
im not sure of tag i will use, i hesitate between halo 1 classic tag or use a custom tagset with h3 or h2 weapons.
Next thing will be a waterfall for respect the orginal idea of the map.
