i wanted to do somthing to help the community keep creating great custom content for the game we love and i had first intended to create a multiplayer map , i soon realized that i just dont have the time anymore
so , i decided to start creating some HD video tutorials that i hope will help new and intermediate level mapper's create detailed geo for their map's and ive tried to keep thing's as simple and easy to do as possible
since there are many tuts already covering the very basic stuff , i coudnt find much on detail work such as blown up walls and burnt out roof's so this is where ill be concentrating the tutorial's
starting with a blown out wall , nothing that hard in creating the wall but texturing can be slightly tricky , hopefully this first tut will help with that
Begginer/Intermediate : Video Tut : Blown out wall
please leave feedback to help me improve the tut's as i go , this first one is to test the water and gain feedback
I noticed you used some hotkeys in there. You should add those in to your quotations as you work. When things suddenly appear, people might get confused. For example, adding patch rows and columns, or turning a brush into a patch with verts etc.
this is the second video in this series and includes audio naration and quotation info for the tools
in this tut i demo just one way to create a nicely detailed roof for a rural bulding using patches , using patches give us more room for details such as sunken roofs and also alpha blending for more detailed texturing
this tut shows 2 ways to create a roof , one basic one using brushes to create a simple but clean and tidy roo fand the second way uses patches
a basic understanding of the clipper tool would be handy but ive added a basic descritpion of it , also , a basic knowledge of alpha blending would be good but its visually there to follow anyway
Begginer/Intermediate : Detailed roof using patches part 1
Awesome tutorials, I would like to see one on making a winding road alpha blended into the grass verges, the last one I saw was great, I think it was by mapicted, but there was no naration or bubble boxes to tell you what keys he was using.
Keep up the good work m8! Your a valuable asset to the mapping community.
P.s. What program did you use to record the videos?
