Several mapping questions
I've been messing around with Radiant for a couple of days now, and there are a couple of questions I've got regarding level design. First, is there any way to extract any map file wanted from a downloaded mod or the original maps supplied with Jedi Outcast? This would really help to understand how other players managed to achieve various effects.
Secondly, how could I make a door that opens downwards, as if it were falling open; kind of like the ramps in the boats of the D-day landing in Medal of Honour.
Thirdly, what are the best ways to light large open exterior areas with only natural lightsources around (for instance, a sun)?
And last of all, I've run into a number of problems when trying to make decent exterior terrain. Could someone please point in the direction of a good tutorial about this subject?
