Peanut Butter!
 
I hope I caught GothiX's attention with this as it was his map that inspired me to try curved pathways!

I tried with patch meshes and failed miserably, so if someone could help me figure out the best way to make a curved pathway, I'd be grateful :)

[edit] this isn't for my main project, but in order to "gain skills"...and I did try first. *nods*

Give me your e-mail adress, and I'll send Peanutbutter's mapsource your way.

Jedi_Vogel 06-29-2004 06:31 AM

:D thanks :D I'll PM you it, if that's ok :)

GothiX 06-29-2004 07:16 AM

Damn, I'm afraid that I cannot send you the map file, for siomple reason: I no longer have PB's, or any other map file, and my back-up disc appears overwritten with, eh, Westlife songs. No worries tho, I'll recreate it and send it to you. :)

Jedi_Vogel 06-29-2004 07:24 AM

You over wrote your maps with Westlife songs? Oh my.

All I need is an ickle demo of curved pathways and such :)

and thank you :)

GothiX 06-29-2004 07:40 AM

I didn't, I hate that crap. Time to kill my parents.

Also, I'll send you a map with some different types of curved pathways later today.

Jedi_Vogel 06-29-2004 07:47 AM

Evil Parents...evil parents. Hang on, your PARENTs like westlife? what IS the world coming to? lol, time to blast YOUR music above theirs teehee.

And thanks GothiX, I really appreciate it :)

So easily forgotten, such a tragic accident... :(

Codja X 06-29-2004 09:26 AM

The fact that it's Westlife makes it all the worse:(

Nevermind GothiX, at least you can listen to them sing their powerful ballads while re-creating the maps:)

GothiX 06-29-2004 09:53 AM

I broke that CD into a buhjillion of pieces, so that won't happen. Jedi_Vogel, I created some paths - are there any paths in specfic you'd like to know how to make?

Jedi_Vogel 06-29-2004 10:04 AM

Well other than curved (as in from above curve) theres the slight curve (as in from the side) curve, like on the Sunset in Coruscant map (which rocks, but my comp can't cope with it *frown*).

So the second kind is like a bridge only it's a part curve too. (my patch meses don't work for that either, this is why I need to learn).

If that made sense :o

None at all, I'm afraid.

Jedi_Vogel 06-29-2004 10:35 AM

um ok, say I had two platforms and to join them I don't want a flat walkway but a kind of bridge. This bridge should curve gently up and then down.

Any better?

If not, doesn't matter, your other paths will be a great start and thanks :D

Codja X 06-29-2004 11:16 AM

Create an end-cap between the two platforms, stretch it to the required height. Make sure you invert the matrix if the textured edge is "underneath" the arch.

Once that is done, go to the curves menu, "thicken" it to the required amount and voila! A nice curvy bridge.

Jedi_Vogel 06-29-2004 11:23 AM

Hmm, I gotta try again at that rate *blushes*

Thanks :)

GothiX 06-29-2004 02:39 PM

"Thicken" is a sucky option, it's better to use 4 patches, and mess with the verts a bit.

*adds to map* any other requests? :)

Jedi_Vogel 06-30-2004 03:20 AM

Nothing specific GothiX, but if you can think of something that would help, feel free to add it and thank you once again :)
