Re: "HD" skins and server performance

I remember the Battlesuit and Bloodreaper skins when you first put them out. Some of my favorite work - and part of what inspired me to make (and eventually remake) my Diesel skin, and Octane skin. Thanks for your great work!

Re: CORONA VIRUS WARCOW STIMULUS PACK - Pack #2

Thank you for the info! you could have higher resolution textures, but at that point it would be preferable to go with S3TC or DXT1, so you can have true color compressed high-resolution textures, which in that case you would still have to include a lower resolution for older renderers I believe (I ...

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

It depends on the type of game, doesn't it? I'm a big fan of single-player FPS games, particularly with an exploration aspect. In those games I find the more immersive, the better. For me multiplayer is a different story. A game engine that is showing off every bright & shiny feature while you're bu...

Re: CORONA VIRUS WARCOW STIMULUS PACK - Pack #2

HBI's question got me to do a little digging, and I came across this nugget of information from years ago: The max resolution the standard UT can handle is 512x512 mipmapped textures, and a max of 256x256 not-mipmapped textures (not mipmapped mostly used for HUD/Canvas and models/meshes skins). In c...

Re: Brush Work/BSP Best Practices

I'm going to add to question #1, as it is somewhat related: 1a. I have encountered an issue where I will transform permanently, and it will cause textures on other brushes to revert. That is, I have aligned textures on an exisisting brush. Later, I will work on a different brush and transform it per...

Re: CORONA VIRUS WARCOW STIMULUS PACK - Pack #2

To anybody that knows! Is the 4.69 upgrade for UT99 finished? If they are still working on it, maybe consider making cow skins 512x512??? :)))) I 've been prototyping a skin for the Nali cow, and texture increase to 512x512 would work wonders. I second this question: Can texture size be increased f...

This is your brainchild ⁠— the timing of the contest should be what works best for you. If I've got bandwidth when it starts, I'll try to join in. :thuup:

Re: Different kind of contest (like skins)?

I had it in my mnd that the contest might kick into gear in the upcoming weeks.
For a number of reasons, it's unlikely that in 3-4 months I'll still have the time & interest that I have now.
No biggie. I may noodle with some skinning on my own while I have some free cycles.

Re: Different kind of contest (like skins)?

It's been a very long time since I've made a skin... 7 years? I can't remember how long the skinning process takes.

What's an appropriate time frame? And when do we start?

I have several ideas... I'm kind of excited to get cracking!

Just come across this - perhaps someone may find it useful https://www.acordero.org/projects/unreal-tournament-skin-maker/ Yes indeed! SkinMaker is a great tool, there's a guide here . and is VERY useful for packaging up your work. It's been 7+ years since I used SkinMaker. I opened it today just t...

Re: Different kind of contest (like skins)?

Those models didn't come out until several years after ut99 was released, but I'll think about it. Even if they are official releases for the game, I'm striving to keep this to defaults. Though admittedly the Skaarj Hybrid is also not a default. While it did come out in 1999, as part of one of the ...

Re: Different kind of contest (like skins)?

Bonus for the weird glow if the player is near slime, lava, etc. Neat - I want to know more about this - is there a post/thread/documentation on this effect? Yes, excellent - well thought out and described. Thanks! I even came up with a points system, because I'm weird like that. I'm sure a poll (l...

Re: Different kind of contest (like skins)?

Yes, agree with those certainly - was thinking about an aesthetic criterion (not sure how that would be worderd) but perhaps that would be too subjective? In relation to originality - both as regards not including parts of other skins but also, as far as possible, something which hasn't been done b...
