On the source engine would actually be pretty cool.

Except that belongs to valve...

SO people leave because someone made a stupid video about someone?



The general lack of maturity the users of this forum seem to display, is the point I was trying to illustrate. Also that beige bit was a metaphor; look a modders on the source engine, when they make something, 9 times out of 10 they don't give a damn if it gets ripped. Because they know one thing this community forgets, the original artist will always be know for they're work. Take cmt's assault rifle for example: the ammo read out's color changes based on ammunition loaded. Now say I ripped that slapped it into some random blood gulch mod. No matter what, anyone who has spent any amount of time on a cmt map would automatically know where that rifle is from. Now say the I went another route and decided that I would make a decent map and, I just wanted cmt rifle so I pm'd masters for permission to use it and then I properly credit cmt in the read me. Now either way the end user would know that rifle was made by cmt, the later would be the best way of doing it as not only would the modder have the good graces of the original creators but also they were properly credited. When dealing with the source engine there is no way to protect model and texture assets. So artist don't even bother its not a big deal if some takes a model you made and ports it to Garry's mod, or some other source mod. The problem is you people take your models and textures too damned seriously, this community takes content protection too seriously to the point that its a joke. when you maps are played by people you don't realize that they could care less that you UV'd that assault rifle perfectly or that you spent hours working on that weapon to make it a perfect recreation, in the end it all boils down to: "how fun is your map to play over all?". Designing a good bsp, working out how your level flows with combat and how balanced that combat is should always take priority over how well protected you tags are. I the big problem you're all failing to see is as the content becomes more closed and protected the less the community can learn from one another, For instance everything I know about animation, I learned mostly from loading up decompiled version of the TF2 classes in 3ds max, that get this, Valve open sourced to everyone who has the sdk installed.

tl;dr: go back to the top and finish reading it

Also I'm fully aware Berlin wants their wall back, I have no intentions of giving it to them.

Well I guess I'll check in and see how the Halo:CE community is doing...

editing in hammer is different from halo. the map its self isn't a model but an arrangment of simple primitives blocks, cylinders, and spheres that kind of thing

as you can see each individual peice of the grate is a block

as for what kills you in this map when you fall off its a trigger which acts just like a trigger volume in halo

and the skybox well the canyons that move by arnt actually there

they are actually off the map and scale up by a factor of 16

and incase your wondering whats with the colors
blue- is the sky box texure
orange- they are triggers for fog, killing, ect
purple/red- player cliping

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » animation error... i think Jun 19, 2009 11:53 AM (Total replies: 2)

06.19.09 10:52:54 the model 'vehicles\turretlesshog\hog' and the animation graph 'vehicles\turretlesshog\hog' don't match
06.19.09 10:52:54 the object 'vehicles\turretlesshog\hog' will not animate

now before you go and state the obvious yes the model, collision model, and physics use the same nodes and yes they are in the same place

so i asked a friend and he told me to check the node checksomes in thanimation tag and compair it to my gbx model. i did and i discovered that the node check somes differed so i copyed the check some from the animation tag and pasted it into the gbx model. so i loded up ahobo and procede to add my vehicle to the pallete and i didnt get the animtion error so i tryed to creat my vehicle and i got this:
