That would be most of a renderer idiosyncrasy, so you shouldn't be doing that...

I made my own, hopefully they will be considered "optimal".

for reference:

Examination reveals that it is not purely a mirror right down the center. The side portions look mirrored but the thin strips at the top and bottom are not. More likely, it was pieced together like the scuba gear in v0.99.

The white thing in the middle is actually off-center in the original, so here is a fix:

I'll have to leave the glare to Wolfe though.

I don't like the sound of that 1px extra thing, and like many rips it's missing the small white thing on the bottom center.

Good per se, but it does not match at all.

Here is a model I would like to share with the community. This is fully animated, made using Blender 2.6 with the ability to bake physic simulations to mesh and export to md3. I used the security screen tile from the polymer HRP as the base for the flag skin. I've included the md3 file with the skins and a readme about the surface #s, frame names, and def stuff.

This isn't a resource per se, but it's something that I learned while designing my Area 51 map, and I thought I would share it with all of you. I've figured out how to make ambient sounds on-demand under the limitations of Duke Nukem 3D's code (you can do it with an ST1 in Shadow Warrior). In other words, rather than a sound that cycles throughout the entire level, it's triggered by a switch or touchplate and continues to cycle. This took me a bit of time to figure out and I took a page from the Informational Suite by Lennox. In the Advanced section, it mentions "staged sounds" and how you can create ambient sounds by placing an SE10 in a slide door sector placed in an area outside of player boundaries. SE10s can also be placed in elevator platforms, and the platform will rise and fall repeatedly and automatically.

Well, I did just that and created an elevator platform (ST17) sector outside the player's boundaries, joined it up with two sectors of differing floor altitude (so the sector would fall and rise), added a MUSICANDSFX sprite to function as the ambient sound, a GPSPEED to control the speed of the elevator and thus the frequency of the ambient sound, and... initially an ACTIVATOR, which I later removed since - regardless of whether the activator is on the elevator - the platform will start moving automatically at the beginning of the level.

My initial struggle was trying to figure out how to stop the elevator from moving until I wanted it to. After a bit of tinkering, I figured out a way. The platform will not move if the two sectors it is joined up both have floors at the same level. So, I lowered one of the sectors to the floor, and placed an SE31 (raise floor) in that same sector, plus the ACTIVATOR and a GPSPEED, so that when triggered the floor would move higher. Then the elevator would start moving, ergo the ambient sound would be triggered when I wanted it to be.

I was very proud to have figured out how to do this. I'm sure other people probably know about it already, but for those who don't, that's basically how it works. Later today, I'll post a tutorial map that shows it in action.

Edit: You can do a lot of freaky things with SE10 sprites and elevators. Note what happens when you tag an elevator with an ACTIVATOR and an SE10, and then tag a SE36 shooter ACTIVATOR with the same LoTag as the ACTIVATOR on the elevator. If the SE10's HiTag is low enough, the shooter will rapid fire. I tried this with RPG shells and it turned the shooter into a deadly Devastator-style turret.

Edit 2: Here it is!

^That's cool, and I'm sure it could be useful to mappers who don't know about it. It's still off-topic, though. If people started posting obscure mapping tips, this thread could go for 50 pages without any more resources (I know a few mappers who could do that by themselves).

It didn't seem worth making a new topic over it, no other available topics seemed suitable, and the original post made it seem as though tips of this sort were welcome here. With that said, I defend my choice to post in this particular topic.

Maybe what we need is per-map .def files that get parsed at map load time...


View PostMikko_Sandt, on 14 February 2012 - 01:55 PM, said:

No, I was referring to the hassle of having to include a separate file if you wish to use a few custom textures. There are lots of good custom art sets for Duke but hardly anyone uses them. Compare this to Quake (and its offshoots) or even Doom where custom art assets are used far more frequently.


Actually, there is already a poor man's packaging system, namely zip files. They're pretty much on par with a directory root added to EDuke32's search path, since all kinds of stuff like ART and CON can be loaded from it.

I'm suspecting that their low adoption is because they're a bit clunky to use on Windows; on Linux at least, you can run e.g. "eduke32 ./NBCBP.zip" (in this example it's the zip in the distributed zip) from anywhere on the file system, and have the included CONs and maps loaded for further enjoyment.

I tried to replicate that on Windows, but it's by no means intuitive: when you assign EDuke32 to "open" the zip, it'll start with C:\windows\system32 as the CWD, which is a bit daft. I next tried creating a shortcut and setting its options to start in the directory containing the exe, but that made it start in the directory with the ZIP instead. This is at least some progress, but then you'll either need to copy or link (on FSs supporting that) DUKE3D.GRP into that dir. So, maybe someone with greater Windows experience/routine can find a better way?

I'm telling this because I consider zip to be pretty much the perfect packaging in its own right. Of course, everything can be extended further to allow e.g. exchanging art in between different maps, but for the time being, placing one custom map together with everything else in a flat zip hierarchy is the way to go IMO. Currently, one shouldn't even think about exchanging hightiles or models while Duke is running...

The other reason I'm bringing this up is on topic. I think there should be an "official" extended art package with everything from this thread that fits into the Duke world. For example, one could start at TILES32.ART and tile 16000, and devise some allocation scheme to allow for further expansion (e.g. tiles 16000-17000: city tiles, next space, etc. Of course, various categorizations are possible). Thus, mappers would only need to pull the ART files they consider necessary for a given project without the hassle of creating their own themselves; moreover numbering conflicts could be avoided.

So, is there interest in creating a project like this? I'd be somewhat willing to help maintaining it (if you need more TILESXXXX.art <-- numbers, just ask :blink:), and this would be the closest thing to Mikko's vision of MAP/ART bundles.

edit: I forgot that I bumped the max tilesXXXX.art to XXXX=0255 a while ago, so we could start with 0100.

The easiest way to have the game preload the zip in Windows is with a batch file.

Also, I love the idea of an official unofficial art set.

I use a neat little program that will open a command window through the right click drop down menu. It will load zips anywhere on my HD inside the folder I run Eduke32 from. It may not be for everyone, but I use this a lot and have come to depend on it. I miss DOS -_-

"- Send To "Command Prompt" opens a DOS console window, setting the current directory to the selected folder.

Hold down the CTRL key to change the active directory to a different folder. Hold down the SHIFT key to force the use of the COMMAND.COM regardless of the Windows version."

I might as well sort of announce now that I have a specification mostly finalized for what I hope to be a solution to the mod-loading troubles and conflicts we are experiencing. I still need to code it though.

I found the original images of those build-based hellraiser sprites I posted. they're NOT MINE but I can't find them online anymore, so I figured it'd be best to just post them. credit goes to the original authors. they're in jpgs - but that's how I found them unfortunately enough.
