Note: This is in extreme early development. The screen shots you see here will most likely change a lot in the future.

I have taken out all the extra line breaks as line breaks are doubled on the main page. There is no such status on my list as "Early Development", so I've changed that too. I have removed the extra link back to this thread, which is redundant.

I have also taken out the [rtnp] tag, as you should only use that if your mod requires RtNP to play.

On that basis, I have been able to approve the thread.

Ok np 8)

Apparently the Upcoming Maps page doesn't like quotations, so I took them out from "Fetel" to just , Fetel,

You really should gamma correct your screenshots; I can barely see anything going on in any of them. Use some freeware program like Irfanview to set the gamma to 1.4 or 1.5 and then resave and reupload; they'll be much more visible. Unreal Engine games like to apply extreme amounts of gamma correction in-game, so stuff that is visible in-game is often really dark when you look at it from Windows.

Yeah I noticed that the screenies are always dark...I could never figure out why though :/

EDIT: Images updated. Should be much brighter now.

Hey, this is starting to look pretty good! You're improving constantly; almost every shot you release has shown better-looking stuff. That bridge is pretty nice-looking, too, from a distance; you might want to add some more details, though, as it's hard to tell if it's got little girder support pieces and stuff on it. Also, that little light pole with the corona on it? You could easily add a little more detail to that without much effort. Start out with just a standard cube-based pole, and then have it beveled to a thinner cube, and then have the spike point on top. And give it a darker, non-complex texture. Top it off with a utflare instead of JUST the corona, too, for people who don't have coronas enabled (hard to imagine in this day and age, but still, you want it to be obvious there is a light source underneath the corona). Keep adding geometry to the water area and this scene is going to turn out pretty good. :tup:

Here's what I mean for the corona pole thing:

Code: Select all

  *
  |
  |
  |
  |
  |
  |
 / \
 | |
 | |
 | |
/   \
|    |
|    |
|    |
|    |
|    |

You get the idea. Subtler angles and close to the same thickness overall, but with little steps where it gets thinner before going to the point.

Thanx 8)

That light pole in the distance is the radio tower you'll be getting to. That map hasn't even been started yet, so I wasn't going to leave it looking like it is now, don't worry :P

And the light is not a corona, it simply a sheet with the texture of a corona. I did this because I don't think coronas from lights show up in skyboxes :P

And I'm not using UT to build my maps, so UTFlare isn't a possibility lol 8)

Ah, ok. Well, replace UTFlare with basically any decoration set to DT_Sprite, STY_Translucent, and ScaleGlow above 0 and a sprite texture and you're set. Even for the skybox, you may find it looks better than a sheet.

Something else to ponder over...

Another key "wtf" moment...it will make sense once you play it....or maybe not...but hey, that's what it's all about 8)

I'm sure if you didn't go "WTF" out loud at least ONCE in the first series....you definitely will in this one ^^



EDIT: btw, that light is actually flickering :P
