Missing textures in UFO AI Radiant map maker.
« on: March 16, 2015, 12:41:04 am »
I'm trying to follow the tutorial for UFO-AI-Radiant here http://ufoai.org/wiki/Mapping_for_Dummies/Lesson1, but I'm getting stuck at the Texture application.  I can easily get my window to look like http://ufoai.org/wiki/File:Ma_1_3.png, but I don't know how to reach the texture sub-menu shown on the right of the picture in http://ufoai.org/wiki/File:Ma_1_4.png.  I heard somewhere about a Radiant installation typical missing where the texture files are, is this related to that problem?  I tried to look for the textures shown in Ma_1_4.png through Surfaces --> Shader, yet I can't figure out where Radiant puts this texture folder and if it is different from the texture folder that game with the game.

The textures are not part of Radiant, they are part of the game, located in /base/textures. Use
Code: [Select]
Edit - Preferences - Options - Path to show Radiant where to look for the files. Beside that (I assume you already did that), there is a <Directories> button below the Textures tab, which will bring up a list of the available texture folders to choose from.

He's not exactly lying...

The textures will NOT load in UFOradiant standalone after going to the game directory.

EDIT:FIXED but another problem. will start an new thread

Who about what?

UFORadiant is not a standalone application. It could be, and probably should be, but it isn´t. It is part of the game.

Nah ConsUme, it's all good.  I got confused because the word "Directories" doesn't look like an icon button underneath the Texture tab.  Once I literally clicked on the word "Directories" I could see the drop down menu of all the games textures.
