What to do, when creating a small detail like a numpad?

Soon you will end up with heavy vertex snapping to bsp, even with lowest grid setting.
[*]Intersect and/or turning brush to non-solid?
[*]Turning it into a mesh?
[*]Somehow override the "snapping"?
[*]Semi Solid?

I wonder what's more effective: Terrain-Tool (Terrain Brush) or tessellated cubes-
I never did the second one. Whats that exactly? arranging various sized 'bTessellated' on, cubes and moving each vertical vertex manually? But what's the downsize...

To modify what I wrote in a different thread not too long ago: I generally use several tessellated cubes (several of uniform size, say 256x256x256) to build out a very rough shape of the terrain I need. I then intersect it into a single brush and vertex edit from there....


If you create a terrain, wouldn't you always stick to a seamless breakup? Therefore end up with what Terrain-Brush delivers?
My problem with tessellated cubes is this situation:

Maybe someone is kind enough to show me the real advantage of tessellated cubes?

Vertex snapping can disabled, in UEd 2.x at least. Also you could always build things bigger then you intend and then scale them down to fit. Meshes and semi-solids are both good depending on what you want/need.

In theory anything you could create with one layer of cubes could be created with a the terrain brush. But what happens if you use more then one layer? There are many shapes which would be either very hard or outright impossible with the terrain brush.

Consider: (.unr available upon request)

Shape 1 and 3 are two cubes, shape 3 is five. If you are using a terrain brush to model your entire terrain you could create a reasonable facsimile of them. Shape 2 is just impossible with a terrain brush. Set to semi-solid in this way they also create nice and clean BSP.

Caves are another issue too. If you needed the interior of a cave how exactly could create that with a terrain brush? With tes-cubes it is handled just like anything else.

Use whatever method makes you happy though.

What is that screenshot? The only games I know with Myst Island ind 3d are RealMyst and Myst V. Only Myst V has such bright lightings and the island looks pretty cool. Your screenshots looks like overdone by sharpening filter.


Question: How can I make a trigger loop?
*Edit*Allright, StochasticTrigger will solve most of my random trigger events.
But I'm still wondering about how to repeat events after x seconds?

Nice! I kinda liked myst, although I never finished it (I played it on my ancient computer that had no sound card, so when I reached the rocket, I was kinda screwed) Maybe I still have the old disc around somewhere...

I dont exactly wanna just post in a 10 month old topic ,
But I was interested and just remembered to check on this ,
But it 6 months since the last post so i guess the project's been abandoned...

This ever gonna happen?
Did issues come up and work ceased?
I thought maybe someone in the forum perhaps knew what happened.

Im sure some of us had our hopes that unreal would get another cool map.
Having this even as a 'demo' map say a intro replacement would have been awesome.
