Footprints are actually a good idea, but to make them look good I think they would have to be decals over brushes, which I don't know how to make.

Learn something new every day, right? :tup: :)

Was thinking, it would be a great give-away for a secret or a trap.
Just ban everyone

Couldn't you use translucent or modulated Panel actors with the texture of choice?

there's a decoration actor named Panel
basically it's just a flat square mesh
you can adjust the size etc. and assign a decal texture. that way you won't have to make a "real" decal

The problem with the panel idea is that, it's a mesh...and generally when you place place meshes on or around terrain, they can clip easy...and for certain computers they will most definitely stand out.

Then again, these might be negligible deterrents when posed with the alternative, which is setting up modulated sheets that may more than likely unlock BSP hell. Or not, depending on how lucky and how crafty you are.

The best you can do is get a coder to code footprints for you for pawns, and have the decals on standby. But that's only if you can get all these assets together in the time given to you, which is not much.

Just an update. Map is about 80% done, 2 sections left to build and then it's gameplay/testing. I'm experimenting with zone lighting, not sure if I'm going to keep it. Skybox is still incomplete. I honestly don't want to release this for the competition, you'll see when you play it. I think it would be better released as the map I intended it to be...but whatever :B

Release it for the competition, then go back & make a full version for outside the competition. :wink:

Yah that's what I'll probably end up doing, as there's so much more I can do with this map. What do you guys think of the zone lighting? :tup: ? :tdown: ?

Yes, a bit odd, having that bright sky & that evening lighting together. But the windmill looks good. :tup:
