Basemapshots discussion
« on: May 17, 2011, 12:03:30 pm »
I'm having some problems here to reach the same light&shadow quality on the new basemapshots.
Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong ?

Here comparison screenshots:

Old basemapshot vs new basemapshot:

For now I will just commit 2 new basemapshots for 'construction' & 'laser', because I do not want to replace anything with something that simply looks worse...  :P

by increasing MAX_MAP_LIGHTING by factor 10 (src/shared/defines.h, line 154) I am able to compile the maps with quant 2...

now I'm reaching the quality desired ;-)

Take a look:

As I told you before construction doesn't need an image as it won't be visible on basemap ever.

I thought you may use it on the basemap during the building phase...
