just a quick question..how would i make an area where someone would fall to their death? would i make a brush halfway down the put for instance, and paint it with a trigger? is there an entity that could be placed?

I havnt' done map making since duke3d but my guess is you would just make a 'kill box'. The person touches the box and they die. If you can make them go through the box to where they die when they go through it then it would be even better.

yeah that would be done with a brush then....triggered to hurt. i could set the pain/sec to like 200 so it would be instant kill....ill try it i guess. i just dont know if that will produce the death scream and falling animation....

To get the 'fall to your death' effect, you need to create a trigger_hurt entity with the 'FALLING' option checked. If you want the camera to stick in one place when the player falls to his death (as it is in the game), check the 'LOCKCAM' option too. Hope this helps.

If you set the hurt entiy to dmg -1 its immediatly kills you,
,check the no protect on , the kill box should be something where
you cant fall trough (fog or something like this, nothing solid).
Hope that helps.
