Does anyone have a copy of the advanced UVW tutorial thats listed on Ghost's tutorial resource page?

Unfortunately the only link there is to the wiki....:(

There are plenty of perfectly good UVW mapping tutorials all over the internet. Look for an alternative before asking.

I only have access to AIM on this unit. Is that anygood to you?

I am buildng my first map completely from scratch, and of course I need to apply different mapping to various sections of the BSP. Problem is, I can apply the textures ok, but the UVW affects all of the areas, not just the faces selected?

heres a couple of pics.
The main wall bitmap is ok.

But the end wall I cant seem to get onto a seperate uvw, which is screwing them up.

Im not worried about the sub-objects in the first pic as I can uv them individually.

Well theres no F***g way I was building a box map as my first attempt...
So I went with the next obvious thing, playing a halo game inside a living organism. :rolleyes:
Its a good size map 20,000 units by 6,000 diameter.

Eeverything compiles ok, material ID is set so that the level bleeds if it get hit by stray rounds etc. But the snarky uv on the end walls is slowing me down.

I found a good tutorial on unwrapping, so I'm gonna give that a shot this avo.

That idea is fucking win. I see this going places.

I don't believe it's ever even been considered before.

thanks!
If you want in, I have room for someone who could add some models...:D

I was going to go multi BSP, so you could jump to different parts of the body, bit like incredible journey. But then I woke up, and thought "one step at a time dumbass"

EDIT* TOP TIP! if you ever go to medical sites looking for potential textures, DO NOT go immediately after eating.

Pft, weak-stomached pansy. :p

I'm not working on much Halo-ish content right now (aside from the still incomplete MG) but I am working on a Mosin-Nagant 91/30 sniper...

Some of those look seriously unhealthy...

Hmmm... guess I'll have to be careful so as not to produce the first Halo 18+ rated map....;)

The finished map will of course come with a little usb powered air freshener thats sprays the scent of roast beef into the air whenever you hit the wall with the flamer....:D

Is it too late to add (Vegetarian warning) to the thread title?

Actually the background noise is currently the underwater looping, which works really well. I'm going to portal it once I have sorted this uvw glitch out, so I'll be able to drop in the flood ambient in specific areas.

And what is the thing, anyway?

should be quite interesting. :D

Ok well dont laugh..(yeah right!)
But I was deternined not to make a yet another box map.
So I modelled a sort of giant mother of all flood /maggoty / worm / thing and flipped the normals.

I have another BSP section that takes you onto an "outside" area.

I wasn't up for posting a wip just yet, as I wanted to get the uv issue fixed first. But the map does compile, I have a test one I've been running around in.

and that gave me an idea, someone needs to make a map on the inside of a whale. WAIT NVM >_>
*adds to idea list for random mod map*

This is like Jonas and the whale, but with less whale and more Flood.

Wasn't planning on a shock map?
I toned down a few of the textures and stuff. The map layout allows for some good gameplay, so should be ok.

why the hell would we laugh

this has seriously got to be the coolest and most original map i have ever seen. i want to play this more then Crowpath's Church allready.
Fucking awesome job man!
if your looking for brutally honest beta tester hit me up on xfire
xfire = bodzilla

that is seriously the coolest map i've ever seen.:cool:
oh noes i've become a fanboi!:XD:

seriously though, that is one of the most origional and cool 1st map (any map) i've ever seen. that is fucking win and i wish you the best of luck.

if you want a beta tester who loves getting to places you really shouldn't be getting to (not that i think their be that many in an inclosed map :P ), then i'm your man.

Looks amazing, I think it should have some giant exploding tumors, you should have a secret teleporter that takes you into a secret room in the head of the map. Or one that has you end up in a toilet on a secret "island" a very smelly brown island. :)
