There are some restrictions in it that aren't compatible with GPL, maybe they're in conflict wit the original CCBY 3.0, but I don't know...

Please do not use non-power-of-2 textures.

Also you should update to the latest development version as you seem to use old textures on your map. A lot of those have already been upgraded in latest master.

power-of-2 textures have x,y resolutions of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, ... pixel. Ofc. our engine can deal with other resolutions as well, but those get upscaled to the next power-of-2 res first and cause unnecessary scaling artifacts then...

Other than that: Nice work 4 a first try. :)

I use the 1.6.0, what do you mean with "old textures"? Where can I find the new one?

http://ufoai.ninex.info/snapshots/ufoai-latest-win32.exe

^^ this version will have all the new textures included in 0textures.pk3. Simply decompress it (it is a zip) to have all of them in the base/textures folder. Then change the ufoai base dir in uforadiant to use the folder of the new version (v2.4dev nightly build).

If you plan to be part of the team in the future, you should probably follow these instructions: http://ufoai.ninex.info/wiki/index.php/Getting_the_source

Thanks. Quite a big file, innit? However, I don't think I will ever need the source since I cannot tell a line of code from a wheelbarrow!

You obviously do not need the sourcecode to contribute map files.

But you should install the latest development version to have up-to-date textures available and you will also get the latest version of the game to play with by doing that as well.

To be able to easily follow ongoing development and to be able to update steadily I suggest you maybe start with that tool: http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php/topic,3843.msg47029.html#msg47029

It is specially designed for non-coders.

Hello! Forgive me for the long absence, a lot of RL problems. However, I am ready to finish working on my map, especially after seeing the new version. So, to get the new textures and the new functions for the UFORadiant I must download the http://ufoai.ninex.info/snapshots/ufoai-latest-win32.exe file, right? However, I think that the map looks fine enough this way. Can somebody help me testing the map ongame? I just cannot understand how to do that myself. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome back Latino210. Check our UFORadiant tutorial here for links to compiling the map and testing it in-game.

That tutorial reads like it was written by a starving Ethiopian boy that was just beaten half to death with an Amharic-English dictionary...

No one can help you unless you tell us what part of the process is not working for you.

Right, right, just joking. BTW, I downloaded the 2.5dev version, unpacked the textures (they ended up in a "base/textures" directory), ran the uforadiant and tried to load my map. May textures disappearead, I guess it's because I used the old textures and in the 2.5 dev version there are only the new textures. Am I right?

I am starting to apply the new textures now. Then I will compile the map with the ufo2map, then I will add rename my maps.ufo file and make a new one with the map definition and try to load it as a "skirmish". I will keep you posted.
