  • End of the day tomorrow i shall, without fail, show my train... Blackice- how do you feel about monorails? EDIT2: More to the point, how to you feel about dead trains? [img]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/596960836501800692/4AF79DAF2DD0DACE5E5B37BF3B43E825AA9133B3/[/img]
  • I shall give it a go but I'm a terrible mapper and my entry [B][U]WILL[/U][/B] make your eyes bleed. Also i have pre-exams in a week so i will probably focus on this instead of studying , oh how nice!
  • [IMG]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_qDvB7jRAneY/TR897ReDTgI/AAAAAAAAAes/u5BuEUkIen4/s1600/62506BigThunder1.jpg[/IMG] Add a 90 degree slope area and it should count, right?
  • [QUOTE=ZombieDawgs;34438101]do vertical trains count?[/QUOTE] Yes- [editline]29th January 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=ZombieDawgs;34439065]Not if they're on tracks![/QUOTE] Elevators are on tracks. You should make the elevator more trainish.

Worst case scenario, you get some practice and you make everyone else feel better about their maps.
  • [QUOTE=podthegod;34443050]Do it. Worst case scenario, you get some practice and you make everyone else feel better about their maps.[/QUOTE] Thanks , and yeah practice is good.
  • [QUOTE=IronPhoenix;34436307]End of the day tomorrow i shall, without fail, show my train... Blackice- how do you feel about monorails? [/quote] Monorails...depends on how it's used. Can it be used, and if so, does the player control the monorail or have to make their own. I'm fine with the latter of "Yes it can be used". Dead trains aren't a problem if I couldn't use them in the first place nor if they obstruct major stuff like airspace.
  • [QUOTE=Black-Ice;34435934] You actually have the potential right there to make that into an actual train map, you know. (Hint hint)[/QUOTE] i have (sort of) [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gya-jU5Rtg[/media] obviously the train will fall much better when it's done also if someone could skin the outro train model to look like an actual london underground train that would be greatly appreciated [editline]29th January 2012[/editline] i think i made the explosion sound a bit loud

Dead trains aren't a problem if I couldn't use them in the first place nor if they obstruct major stuff like airspace.[/QUOTE] The idea is for the train to be working, not sure yet about control methods yet. So you don't cry at the sight of a dead train. :( You might get a better fall by parenting it to a movelinear and then releasing it at the required point.
  • [QUOTE=IronPhoenix;34447371] You might get a better fall by parenting it to a movelinear and then releasing it at the required point.[/QUOTE] I would, but the outro train model is prop_dynamic only and prop_physics_override doesn't have a "parent" field, meaning I can't parent it onto the movelinear
