View Full Version : 2nd Map about done. A few quick Q's

05-08-2002, 11:45 PM
Well Im just about done with my second map. Still need to tweak the botroute. Damn bot pathing is a pain in the ass. Anyway;

1. Compression when making the PK3? I know it works using compression, but how does everybody feel about it? Will it really kill framerate or map quality? Most people dont seem to compress, but I can take my 2mb bsp and turn it into a 500k file. Really helps with size when your including your own music file. It seems that all the maps in the assets0.pk3 were compressed.

2. Adding extra spawn spots when in FFA mode. Can I somehow do this? Ive tried adding info_player_deathmatch entities and setting them to notsingle 1. Is there a notduel key or something?

Er I guess thats it. Thought I had more questions but apparently not, hehe. I'm hoping to release it either tonight or tomorrow =)

Anybody? I dont wanna wind up releasing it compressed only to find out that it will hinder the map somehow. Likewise I dont wanna find out that it can be compressed after releasing it with an extra 1.5megs worth of space.

The map will just take longer to load if you compress it.
