Re: Map Requests

Definitely don't add ledges to the NYC street map. That's most of what I already have done for it. It will need some alteration because I tried doing it a couple of different ways and, as you might expect, one of them is better than the other. Once those alterations are done though it should be as s...

Re: Deus Ex 3 - I'll just leave this here

As is often the case, the only thing I can contribute to this thread is some clarification on the original Deus Ex. The UNATCO trooper thing was already dealt with, so I think there are only two things to respond to. The first is that Icarus (the AI) isn't all that mysterious. He's a modification of...

Re: Map Requests

So I'm back, but my computer isn't. (Cars were switched mid trip, I decided to let my computer stay with the other car which was supposed to arrive home before me. It seemed like it would be safer that way than being crammed into the car I came back in.) I guess I should have just uploaded the parti...

Re: Map Requests

I'll be away for the next two or three days, hopefully I'll have most of Hong Kong to upload soon after that, although this coming week might be somewhat strange for me. I have a tendency to get side tracked, and the whole canal street thing has been bugging me more than a little. It's not that they...

Re: Congratulations and Happy Birthday Lawrence

Happy Birthday, and ... what is Bobby talking about? Did you get married and I missed it? Or have you found yourself in a dimension where it's always the same season? Or what? Why am I always out of the loop? Anyway, the important point is: I wish happiness upon you. - [Added:] A bit of internet sta...

Re: Map Requests

As for the tyres: http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/3892/78925410.jpg Oh thank god. Or Dave. Oh, thank Dave. Trying to figure out how to do that in Unreal Ed was not fun. - The Versalife building, it's not important but it should be pretty easy to explain once I have time to take screenshots which I...

Re: Map Requests

The weird thing is that, apart for the usual Tardis like quality of the Deus Ex maps, where the Versalife building is in relationship to everything else should be completely straight forward, they just stuck a massive building in the way from two out of three angles. Way to take something that shoul...

Re: Map Requests

I was originally going to include this as a sidenote in the previous post, but I was worried it would get lost. The Versalife map has in it a copy of the exterior portion of the Tonnochi Road map, which allows for a certain amount of comparison and discovery. For the most part there's not a lot to s...

Re: Map Requests

I can be somewhat slow sometimes. I noticed that looking out of the windows of Versalife you see Tonnochi Road, which is an important thing to know because it means that I have to make sure to make the same changes to the Versalife map that I make to the Tonnochi Road map otherwise the two will not ...

Re: Secret Deus Ex Conversations

I don't think Walton ever leaves the cell block in that map. Or I assumed he didn't. Yeah, you seem to be right. I've definitely gotten stuck in there before, probably due to a bug, and looking back on it I probably conflated not being able to get out with not being able to get in. People tend to l...

Re: Map Requests

Oh and Chris: it's not enough that an object be cylindrical, with reference to your jet engine idea. The cylinder has to be upright - you can't rotate the collision cylinder in the Unreal engine, and yes that is precisely as big a problem as you might imagine. But that's ... ugh. In that case I gue...

Re: Map Requests

If we are going to be doing that kind of thing I very much recommend that one be made for the payphone. A texture on a rectangular box simply doesn't look that much like a payphone. I also feel like it might be a good idea to do the jet engines as models rather than geometry because really good look...

Re: Map Requests

Provided that all of the misalignments and such are identified before it comes time to do a given map it should be fairly simple to create an alignment only version of a map and a visually improved version in a single pass. You just do the alignments first, save, and then do the rest and save to a d...
