Does fog in a skybox stay in the skybox, or can it be seen in the actual playable part of the map? I made a skybox with fog but it isn't showing up. Anyone know of a work around?

You could:

-Add fog to the zones where the skybox is visible
-Use sheets to create the illusion of fog in the skybox.

Besides that I don't know.....

You need to have the playable area zoneinfo also set to bFogZone, it's also possible you have volumetric fog disabled in your renderer of choice?

okay thanks all. I'll give those ideas a go. I think I tried that stuff but will go again and see. Must have forgot to do something. Thank you all.

Yes, I can confirm.

Fog in a SkyBox does not show up in the main map's fake backdrop (after extensive testing), which is a bummer. :(

That's why Godzilla uses translucent 2D sheets.

That's not to say there is no secret work around for it?


EDIT:

Thanks to our esteemed colleague Tony Garcia (Wolf's Tutorials) I dug up the original instructions for FOG zones in Unreal, however to make it work in UT, I changed the ZoneInfo/ZoneLight/ViewFog X,Y and Z variables to 0.500 to make it work correctly.

Below is a FogZone test map with the results.

Fog in the fog zone (the one with the potted plant in it, which also doubles as a SkyBox) is visible, but not from outside the zone.

I also inserted a room with a fake backdrop to test the SkyBox's visibility, (negative). Hope it helps!

Thanks guys. I found an extra zone info in my area that I forgot about which was why the fog wasn't showing up.

The 1 zoneinfo i knew about I had set true but the one I forgot about was causing it to not show up. Once I deleted the extra zoneinfo in that area it worked just fine.

But then after I got it working, I didn't like how it looked and removed it again. lol Thanks for the tips though.

Bots get hung-up in a couple spots, but nice overall.

Love the music!

So I have created a DOM map, with which I'm working on an idea I think could be fun and is doable. So, here's a basic question for ut modders: is it a big deal to have weapons rendered "harmless"
As I recall, some pickups you can modify the weapon itself. Others, you have to mod the ammo or projectile it shoots.

I took a look at the sniper rifle and made a non lethal version by reducing the TakeDamage from 100 to 0. It appears as a sub class of Sniper rifle.
if ( Other.bIsPawn && (HitLocation.Z - Other.Location.Z > 0.62 * Other.CollisionHeight)
&& (instigator.IsA('PlayerPawn') || (instigator.IsA('Bot') && !Bot(Instigator).bNovice)) )
Other.TakeDamage(0, Pawn(Owner), HitLocation, 35000 * X, AltDamageType);
The Nali cows are very grateful. :-)

It's probably not done, but I've been working on this map to the point where I've lost all objectivity. Feedback would be great.

Known issues:
- Bots are not picking up or using the sniper rifle at designated defense points (Scanner Room).

Notes:
- This is my second UT map
- New (non stock) music
- New (not stock UT) textures
- The jumppads are NOT forgiving. If you try to use air control, you will likely end up in the black hole.
- The redeemer is not easy to find or reach, and there is no getting back once you reach it. Using it is a sacrifice play.

Yeah, I could see how that would be a problem.

I'm guessing it was a specialty file he made himself but forgot to include.
