Shift-O will do it

(Donnovan) #162

Oh yes! Entities that use brushs need a full map recompile after the change of the brush shape and/or location!

It’s not a gameplay release. This is a .zip of SDK files and “pre-release” files. Pretty much everything is in there, so feel free to poke around in editworld.

There’s techbuster and techbuster_obj. I have scripts and worlds for both, and they are almost identical.
They both contain objectives: techbuster has 2, techbuster_obj has 1 (I want 2 for tests, but I thought 1 would be easier to make. Apparently not)

I really need some advice on the script. It seems like nothing I do has any effect. Spawns and objectives are still my main concern.

(Boktor) #164

did anyone download the .zip? I think I’ll just put the script up instead. If anyone can give me some tips that would be great, because right now nothing works.

Some stuff I sort of understand, some stuff I just copy because most map scripts use it…

Here’s some shots of the Strogg spawn. It’s almost fully detailed.

Ceiling 1 or ceiling 2? Number 1 is the same concrete tiles as the main tunnel.

(Boktor) #166

Here’s another area of the Strogg spawn that isn’t shown in those screenies.

Notice the blank ceiling…

I’ve shown these areas before, but they have been widened.

heh… as I make these screenshots I notice textures and lighting that I need to tweak

May be you would like to read this post on Brinstar topic. You just need 3 key/values on the destructible/gameplay entity to make it destroyable by the enemy team weapons:

(Boktor) #168

Hey guys, I was wondering

So you need a “yourmapname.def” file for the map. The wiki says it goes as /def/yourmapname.def, but I see in some custom maps (Maridia, Brinstar older Consite) it is def/maps/yourmapname.def

Does it matter? Any difference?

(.Chris.) #169

Doesn’t matter, all .defs are read within /def.

Does anyone have the Techbuster pk4, I’d like to play it and see it!

(Boktor) #171

Hi assassin,

You can download the pk4 here:

It’s not perfect but it plays! Take a screenie if you get in :smiley:

(taw_m0nsta) #172

Status poke! Whats up…?

(Assassin4004) #173

Hey Boktor, I finally found the picture I took of Techbuster a while back. Thanks for helping us obtain the pk4 and well done, it’s fun to play! You should join us some time!
