Re: Forum glitch?

Funny thing is that yes, that's true... yet if you open the image's URL in the browser it displays as HTTPS. That's because that URL is redirecting to HTTPS, meaning that there is in fact 2 requests going on with that URL: the first one in HTTP, and then the server replies with a redirect response ...

Re: Forum glitch?

Found it: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3434#p32550

It's actually from your last post in that page.
In your post you have "Image", but this is just a placeholder when the actual image could not be loaded, if you right click on it you can copy the URL and also see "view image".

Re: Forum glitch?

From the URL itself, it seems that the image is from July of 2011, and the name of the image seems to imply a censored low resolution image of something else. There's also the domain name itself, which is very suspicious. If I had to guess, based on all this and the type of warning he got (URL black...

Re: Forum glitch?

It may have to do with this forum actually, since most images displayed in this forum aren't stored at ut99.org, but are instead loaded from remote sites. Take Evilgrins signature image for example, its URL is actually: http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/evilgrins/3189901/2202082/2202082_640.png and not...

Re: Looking for the name of a fabulous map....

It does sound like MH, and likely a NW3 server. But MH has so many great maps like that, that it is nearly impossible to tell from that description alone. However, like others have said, this map is likely stored on your computer as cache, so you can use cache converter tools to try to find and reco...

Re: Unreal Tournament 469

What about those maps that uses mismatching textures? this is a deep problem, in you opinion what could be the solution in this area? BTW nice seeing you in the scene again :) If you're referring to the problem of mismatching packages in general, while there are potential strategies and workarounds...

Re: [SOLVED] How to make descending smoke

Yeah, the one from Dots is far more efficient for exactly that reason, but depending on native addons brings the issue you mentioned: the map cannot be hosted/played online (unless the server admin adds that package to NPLoader). Also, since that package is extremely old by now and not actively main...

Re: Unreal Tournament 469

Adding to what @anth just said, a lot of work has been put into massively improving the editor, and we're in dire need of mappers to test out the new one. I have been testing when I can, and reporting bugs and request some features along the way, and a few others as well, but we're now reaching a po...

This should be translated to a new alignment option in the new UEd. :)

Re: [SOLVED] How to make descending smoke

There being a way to do what you want without custom packages is generally the best way to at least prevent a 3rd party package dependency. Having that said, if you end up looking for particle emitters, including weather, I don't know what's out there nowadays, but I do recall that existing emitters...

Re: Favourite other games?

I am still playing Apex Legends almost exclusively at the moment, especially since I don't have much time to play anything else, and since the developers are putting a lot of love into it, so it's actually evolving in the right direction. Other than that, I played Just Cause 4 recently (when it was ...

Re: Too soon or too late? Unreal Engine 5 Revealed!

It seems to me that the real power of UE5 over UE4 is that you no longer need to bake maps and work on low-poly versions of higher-poly stuff, which would mean greater visual quality and a lot less work to achieve it (quicker iterations), especially since that would mean near-direct scans from envir...

Re: Brush Work/BSP Best Practices

I will just add the following since I am pretty sure that a lot, if not most, of even the experienced mappers around do not really know about this when it comes to semi-solids: you're able to achieve near-zero (and even absolute-zero) BSP errors with semi-solids in almost every map. Many do not real...

Re: CORONA VIRUS WARCOW STIMULUS PACK - Pack #2

Correct, but in the case of meshes, mipmapped textures do not look as great as non-mipmapped (the difference is subtle, but it's there). But a higher resolution texture will still look better, that's for sure. I must also add that these limits are mostly dependent on the used renderer. It just so ha...
