I don't have any links or anything to add, Wiluf, but which tutorial would you suggest for someone just starting Q3 Editing? I have edited Jedi Knight before. I did levels, and even tried a mod or two. I also tried Half-Life.

Wilhuf
06-03-2001, 02:53 PM
Well, I'd try Ricebug's Creating a Basic Room Tutorial (http://quake3.qeradiant.com/q3afiles/creatroom.htm) first. It quickly gives you results: a gun and a box room to run around in.

Since you're experienced, you'll know what kinds of questions to ask, and what kinds of level editing operations to conduct. Look at Claudec's Tutorial Index (http://www.claudec.com/the_tutorial_Index/q3a/tutorials.shtml) for tutorials by theme. For instance, tutorials on doors, sound, curves, bots, exteriors, lighting etc.

This page of tutorials is a MUST for a person first starting out editing with a Brush Engine. Like me. :)

<h3><a href="http://planetquake.com/bubba/tutorial.html">Bubba's Arena Tutorials</a></h3>

I highly recommend this if you are new to brush engines or just to quake editing at all.

gamedesign.net has some great resources. I reccomend especially looking at Quake 2 tutorial sites. Since it was basically just lower poly, most of the methods are going to apply and there was a wealth of information on Q2 editing--even more so than what is available for the Q3 games.

I recommend getting GtkRadiant from http://www.qeradiant.com/gtkradiant.shtml which many people consider to be the best (since it is the newest) of the Radiants.

I recommend using that.

Ki-Adi-Mundi
06-06-2001, 12:02 AM
Could you let us in a some of the latest features on it and why people like it so much? I'm currently using Quake III Radiant version 201. And I like it. I think it may also be known as 202. Not sure.

Jedi_Killer
06-06-2001, 02:34 AM
Radiant was open sourced and GTK Radiant is a community maintained version of the editor. It has some bug fixes and some of the tools work slightly better. It's definitly what you need to use for Team Arena editing. For simple basic Q3 it shouldn't matter too much I would think. Although I'll admit I'm using GTK now.

Heh, damndest thing is though, I started to make a Tantive IV level for Q3 in preparation for JO (possibly to be ported), but the damn q3 engine screwed up my white textures. Now, instead of looking like a corellian corvette, it looks like ..a white void. Raven had better fix that.. :)

Discreet (http://www.discreet.com), the producers of 3dStudioMax, has released gmax (http://www.discreet.com/products/gmax/gmax_index.html) to the public.

As described on the gmax page (http://www.discreet.com/products/gmax/gmax_index.html), 'gmax is a free 3D content creation platform designed to let game enthusiasts create custom art for their favorite titles. It includes many powerful tools including polygon and patch editing, texturing, lighting, and simple keyframe animation.'

gmax tempest (http://www.discreet.com/products/gmax/gmaxconsumer/downloads_text.html) is also available for download, and adds Quake3 level creation support to gmax.

I'm pretty sure it's the engine.. I've heard reports of similar problems from other people. Oh well.

I've been messing around a bit more in gtkradiant, and I have come to the conclusion that it sucks.;) It's basically impossible to create a geometrically perfect parabolic wall, e.g. the window/canopy type thing at the front of a Star Destroyer bridge. It lacks a snap to vertex function, which, in my experience is absolutely necessary, the drag vertices function doesn't seem to work all that well, the rotate function rounds off to the nearest degree, etc... Went to telefragged and talked to the people there, and they pretty much confirmed it. (not that it sucks, that you can't do it :) )

I'm hoping that Raven will run into the same problems I, and a few others from Massassi have, and find a way to fix them.

from my experience (mapping for another q3 based raven game elite force) i'd say the claudec's lair site linked to above is the best mentioned. also efmodcentral.com has tutorials and Q&A (which i do :) ) that are informative.

Yes, you can create custom weapon models with gmax, or with MilkShape3d.

Ki-Adi-Mundi thanks for the link update. It will take some effort to keep the links current as more and more come in. The more people who keep us updated the better.

Keep those new links and updates coming in.

I'd say Gmax is the best alternative to the $20 milkshape modeling program or the $25,000 3D max ;)
if you get it dont forget to get the tutorials with it because they are very well made and i'd say they are also alot better then some of the user made tutorials for MS3D if you're completely new to 3d modeling (like myself)
you learn how to make some basic 3d level design, a head, a powercharger, a character and an airplane the tempest add-on allows you to create maps for Q3 so you might want to get that as well.



I started using it on sunday and Iím finishing up the head model right now instead of doing my school work. :D

Here's my favorite Quake engine editor.

Click here for QuArK (http://www.planetquake.com/quark/)

It currently has support for Quake 1, 2, and 3, Hexen 2, Heretic 2, Half Life, SiN, Kingpin, SoF, Elite Froce, Crystal Space, and the latest snapshot has support for 6DX and RtCW. I suspect JK2 support will be forthcoming, especially if we bug them about it. ;)

I used QuArK to build all but my first map for Heretic 2, and I loved it's features (vertex snap is my god). For yo ucoder types out there, it uses mini python libraries, and is inherently customisable.

I havnt taken much C++ yet but in the tutorial:

"gentity_t *bolt;

VectorNormalize (dir);

bolt = G_Spawn();"

"Line 372 is creates a new entity (called bolt). The G_Spawn() function creates a 'blank' entity... then next job is to flesh out all the details (what sort of entity is it "

Am I wrong or is bolt just a pointer of type gentity_t and "bolt = G_Spawn();" Is bolt pointing to a *forgot the term* object .

I was told to use GMax for animating/keying Q3, which is what I want to do for JO. Just double checking to see if that's the right prog and if anyone knows of some real good tutorials for it.

gentity_t *bolt; <--create pointer to a game entity
VectorNormalize (dir); <--turn vector dir into a direction
bolt = G_Spawn(); <--create a new game entity and make bolt point to it


btw, q3 code is in pure C :)
dunno about jk2 though. they coulda rewritten it all in c++ *shrug*

Gmax is useless, you can only use it for games where the developers have modified itto export to their file format. There's only two companies that have done it that i know of, iD and microsoft. No other companies want to do it because they don't want to pay the rediculous price of $80,000 US. On it's own Gmax, can't export or import and can only save as a gmax file. Plus, Gmax is still just a cut down version of 3ds max, max's UI sucks already, although it is much better than milkshape IMHO.
I'm just gonna stick with my pirated version of Maya 4. Alias don't care that i have a pirated version of maya, because i'm NOT doing anything commercial with it at all. If i did, i'd get a loan and pay the $1999 US for Maya 4 Complete (recently dropped).

BTW, 3ds Max 4 is not $25,000. It's $3,000 US, unless they dropped the price to try and compete against Maya and Lightwave's sudden price drop.

Also, is it me or are these forums REALLY slow?

You should wait for the official sdk because the Raven guys seem to have quite changed the BSP format. No, this is not one of those "don't do that it'll get you killed"-threads, I'll just explain:
The first four bytes of a BSP file are the so called magic code, the fifth is the version number. (Just open the map with a Hex editor)

For a normal Q3 map this looks like:
49 42 53 50 46 | IBSP Bsp version 46
But for JO:
52 42 53 50 01 | RBSP Bsp version 1

So I think something totally new has been introduced to the BSP format, otherwise changing the magic code sucks :D :D
I chose to post it in here for all those unsuccesful mappers out there. :)

support JKII mapping to some extent though.

A really good way to find solutions to problems you may (and will encounter with Radiant is to hit the level editing forums at www.quake3world.com and use the search function. Saved my butt several times.

B0rG
04-08-2002, 08:46 AM
INFERNOJHC, yes there is - you'll find a link if you do a search at quake3world.com in the level editing forums as I just mentioned. However, curved brushes do not convert properly and I'm fairly certain you lose all existing texturing as well.

For those of you who dislike the lighting system in Q3, all you have to do is tweak your lighting. The lighting in the game is naturally bright, so much as to make it look realistic. It also provides eye-candy in some instances. :)

Ok, sorry if this is just really idiotic...but how are people making levels for JK2? I know you need Radiant, but has there been a build or a patch released for JK2, and if so where is it? Everything talked about in these forums or on other websites give very vague descriptions at best, and I'd like a concrete answer. I've never used radiant before since I never bought Quake III, but is there a setting somewhere in there to specify a new, unsupported game and add in it's pk3 file? Somebody help me out here.

lightside
04-19-2002, 04:09 AM
Here's a concrete answer, and a solution. NO, there is no editor that is a for sure editor for JO. You CAN use QRadiant and GTK Radiant in preparation for the SDK (Software Development Kit) to port your levels to it. You can also use UGG's JOMap utility (See JK2.net's home page, at top.) to port your Q3 bsp files over to JO's code. It's still kinda buggy, but works nicely. Just for kicks, tests, and some sabering, you can use JOMap, but I recommend waiting for the tools from Raven (If they ever release 'em...) for your more 'flashy' levels.

Just want to shortly give you a positiv reply on this topic: I started mapping after seeing JK2 and reading this tutorial.
I hadn't mapped since early unreal days and even there my experience was very limited. With the help of Bubbas Tutorials and GTKRadiant I have mapped now for the past 2 weeks and I think my results (http://www.durahcell.de) are ok.
So if I can do it almost everyone can do as good. I don't know everything but I think I know enough to build the images I have in mind.

Just wanted to let you know

The best link I've found so far is

Everything is pretty concise and the author makes it all pretty easy to understand.

Hi Force users,

Yeah, I'm new at this too. I downloaded the Toolkit a couple of days ago and used one of the tutorials to build 2 rooms, but I don't think I've done it correctly and the BSP part kills me with Windows popping up about 20 errors on me.

Learning the basics is a definite must. :confused:

*.pk3 files are just *.zip files renamed, so if you grab any zip program and rename your *.pk3 file to *.zip you can open them, or better yet, tell your zip program that it can open all *.pk3 files.

Does that answer your question?

pakscape is a great and fast way to View / Edit / Save pk3 files

Where should I go to get a tutorial for level making, custom skins, and mods? Also, what tools do I need, and can I download them off the internet without spending money?

Thanks!
