Can you vertex edit in JKRadient or not?

Also how do i make a cylinder that is hollow, because when i try making a cylinder, i get the cylinder but it wont go hollow?

Thanx

to vertex edit you press V, but be careful when editing brushes. brushes are easy to screw up w/ vert editing.

to make a hollow cylinder you have to make a cylinder inside another one and the inside one you have to invert the matrix (under the patch menu). thats should do it for you.

Select a brush or patch mesh, and pres V.

Then, drag the vertices around.


And, you actually have to 'thicken' the cylinder to get that 'hollowed' look.

That's if i understand what you're going for.

No problem.

Tems' way of getting a hollow cylinder works too. It's exactly what JK2R does for you when you use the 'thicken' command. ;)

Thicken command?

Can you please go over it again, i am fairly new to mapping for JK2 so it all a bit over my head! :)

try the key command of Control/Ctrl + T and that should thicken it. it asks you by how many units (youll see when i you get there what i mean). Experiement with units until you find one you like.

thicken is also in a menu but i dont recall what the menu name is. thats motor memory for you.

anyway give that a shot.
