I'm making a secret room and I want to make a wall, which would actually be a way to get in the room, and you can pass through it. How can I make this? It is similar like in riginal JK & motS if it helps to understand better.

I've tried the no draw texture by putting the no draw brush on top of the wall which I want ppl to walk thru, but it didnt work. So can someone please tell me how to do it if you know?

Thanks :):amidala:

I believe there's a nodraw texture(or something like it, maybe caulk), that's not solid. I don't know what it's called though, sorry.

I think you want that wall to appear as a normal wall. In this case you have to make a variation of the wall texture. You need a shader where you tell that it is nonsolid, so it will look like a normal wall just you will be able to walk through it.

say your wall texture is textures/x/wall.jpg. Then the shader code is:

qer_editorimage textures/x/wall.jpg
surfaceparm nonsolid
map $lightmap
map textures/x/wall.jpg

Handle this carefully! :D I'm not sure I wrote it well. I'm at work now and no editing tools here. A shader expert should check it.

Save this into the base/shaders directory on a name x.shader and put this name into the shaderlist.txt too.

Now you can use the wall_nonsolid as a texture from the x texture group as the original wall texture.

Here is the Q3A Shader manual (http://www.heppler.com/shader/).

There is also another way: select the wall brush you want to be non-solid, then click on the "Selection" menu, then click "Non-Solid". You can also press the short-cut keys: "ctrl-U".
