Question on lighting and skies

Ok the problem that I am having is my sky box. I made a brush and put it above my wall brushes and selected the skies/stars shader for it. I started to compile but when it got to BSP it showed:
WARNING: Couldn't find image for shader textures/skies/stars
WARNING: Couldn't find image for shader noshader

It countinued to compile so I loaded up my map and everything looked ok but there were no stars and when I shot at where the sky should be the laser hit the sky brush.


Another question I have is can you make light shaders more bright?


Thanks in advance

1. maybe you did not choose the shader for the stars--or maybe the textures didn't load right when you installed RAD--in other words--check again to see if the texture had a white box--otherwise cant help yah.

2.--I can help you!!


Edit the shader--open it up in NOTEPAD

It will look something like this:

textures/skies/coolsky

qer_editorimage textures/skies/sky.tga
q3map_surfacelight 75
q3map_lightsubdivide 512
sun 0.75 0.79 1 250 0 65
surfaceparm sky
surfaceparm noimpact
surfaceparm nomarks
q3map_nolightmap
skyParms textures/skies/nebula2 512 -
}

All you gotta do is change the fourth value if you want a brighter or dimmer sun


Today isn't your lucky day....tommorrow isn't looking good either...

When I edit the shader will it just be effected in my map or in every map that uses it?

Every map that uses it. Shaders are global. Only edit shaders that you created yourself - never edit the originals.


There are three things that I paricularly hate: kids, animals, and women with attitudes.

Why, you must edit the originals if you want to be COOL and play wearing sunglasses. Distributing the originals in any form is another matter that I leave to copyright holders.

WTF are you talking about? You can modify shaders and release them in your level, it's perfectly legal.


Clarionet, n. An instrument of torture operated by a person with cotton in his ears. There are two instruments that are worse than a clarionet -- two clarionets.

Neh, that's not what I meant. Don't modify the original files or re-define shaders already defined by Raven. You can pull shader scripts from those files and put them into your own as much as you want.

I doubt anyone at Raven cares at all if you steal a shader script. *snicker*
