The Good Doctor


This is the first time I’ve ever attempted to work with lamps and the grainy ass shadows they cast. I know the edited shadows are still blocky and I seriously should have smoothed them out some more, but I don’t have the energy to fix that atm.
Also this was my first ever scene build, did it on gm_construct.
Criticism would be greatly appreciated.

This is pretty good for getting non grainyshadows Good work on this.

I tried all that, it made everything even worse. See how the shadows are kinda blocky? Yeah it was like that times 100.
Believe me, I tried every console command I could find to make it better.

I’ve got the same problem. When I am trying to make better shadows etc. then my Gmod crashes. Anyway your work is pretty nice, for me. And the scenebuild isn’t bad.

I THINK the trick YourBreakfsat posted USED to work but after some random Gmod update it didnt enhance the shadows but rather broke them completely making them look all blocky.

For people wondering, the update didnt exactly break the shadows to a massive degree. A few things to note are the higher settings (r_flashlightdepthres 8192 + r_projectedtexturefilter 0.1 or 0.2) are quite hard to run. And the commands do enhance the shadows but only at close range. If far away the lamps wont do shit, close up they’ll look good.

Good work by the way Katatonic.
