Thanks H-Hour for pointing this out.

The canyon map is a very good example, but I have problems to figure out how to do to get results like this.  :-\

Hi ShipIt. I threw together this image tutorial on how to create terrain using this method. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Screenshot looks good. Was afraid you'd disappeared on us.

Check out the phong surface property. You should set this on your rock cliff faces and it will smooth the edges between faces.

ShipIt, I see you got one of those rare 1920x1200 16:10 screens - it is a pity that it is not possible to get those anymore  :'(

Agreed :)

Check out the phong surface property.

Actually, phong surfaces are somewhat broken in the ufo2map, so there can be weird lighting on them. But ofc one can try and see if it works out.

2MCR: HP2410U is still on the sale :) And I'm seriously thinking about buying one of those. Living with shitty TN 16:9 6-bit panel with insane colorshift is not fun :(

No reason for this. There simply was nothing new to show.

Its a nice piece of tech. And the added space is worth the money imo.

Agreed :)

I have a serious "weird lighting" problem in the underground part of the whole map, so ... Also I was not able to solve the other problems described in http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php/topic,6373.msg49788.html#msg49788. Maybe someone can help me with this.

Looks wonderfull!

Thank you very much, guys.

Would be great if you could look at the maps. The files should all be in the last attachment ("mansion.7z"), aren´t they? Is 7zip no good?


Reason for editing : attached .zip files of four maps

7zip is good. I think he just missed it.
