Report article RSS Feed Off Limits - construction site development video

This is a short video that shows the area I'm currently working on, the construction site.

Posted by Wesley on Oct 12th, 2010

This is a short video that shows the area I'm currently working on, the construction site. It's something I previously did with a work in progress video of Russia ( Wesleytack.com ) and I had people asking me to post more. This video shows me working on railings and staircase asset for this particular area, exporting and importing and also how it looks ingame. I hope to finish the construction site by the end of this week. The video can also be found on my blog ( Wesleytack.com )


More info on Off Limits can be found on our site: Off-limits.be I have more updates coming soon as the level gets closer to final!

Wesley Oct 13 2010, 7:19am replied:

just run your map, open the console and do this:
sv_cheats 1 = cheats on
developer 0 = turn off developer messages on top left´╗┐
impulse 200 = remove weapon
cl_drawhud 0 = remove hud

and if you wanna fly around your level:
noclip = free flight

but if that's not what you mean please explain further what exactly you mean by it?

He's saying it's a large mode; How does the game know it's something you can walk on, like a floor.

i mean its not a map modelled in hammer right ?, so how do you model something in a modeling program and load it in to halflife and the camera knows how to move on it etc..

oh, no, the floors are brushes I exported to .dxf and imported into 3DSmax, it's half brush half models. I made the rough look in brushwork first so I would know the size in 3DSmax, there I add details and export it all back into hammer using all the same pivot, then once I have 1 object in place all I need to do is copy that object, rename it and all the detail models are fit directly into place without much hassle.

Anddos, Wesley also exports collision primitives and compiles those into the static prop.

Thats an interesting way of getting details into your map :]

I'm guessing this is good for optimization, since you can easily fade things you don't want.
