I'm probably late to the party and pointing this out somewhat redundantly, but, and also for the readers of the future (ooo!), ...

I think what Deepu means by the collision thing is you can disable the model's own collision, and use a bunch of smaller BlockAlls to approximate the mesh's limbs :)
"Everyone is an idea man. Everybody thinks they have a revolutionary new game concept that no one else has ever thought of. Having cool ideas will rarely get you anywhere in the games industry. You have to be able to implement your ideas or provide some useful skill. This also applies to mod authoring. If you become a skilled or notable mod author, you will find people propositioning you to implement their ideas. Never join a project whose idea man or leader has no obvious development skills. Never join a project that only has a web designer. You have your own ideas. Focus on them carefully and in small chunks and you will be able to develop cool projects."

This would make an awesome map for the Bounce mod/gametype (Super Smash Bros like).

All my creative work is stopped.
I am very demoralized by the fact that Russia started a war with Ukraine. And my country, Belarus, was also drawn into the war.
Against the background of news about the killing of civilians, it is impossible to think positively and be creative.

I get you, man. :cry: I will do my best not to bring politics into this. But at least I have to say two things: 1-War is never a good thing. Never. 2-We need to keep playing these games, cause they bring us together, they bring the world together.

This video is very interesting. The map is beautiful. Voices and models complete and enhance the appearance of ut2k4. And the instagib with zoom made the game really cool.

Amazing looking map :gj:

What happened to Sapphire (0 frags/5 deaths) - did she get stuck somewhere or fall off and not die?

Map is extremlely detailed and very beautiful, but have many problems, which need to resolve:
-unplayable FPS
-BSP holes

If anybody know how to fix such problems - welcome!

For bsp holes - try select all brushes - context menu - poligons - separate - rebuild map.
OFC make backup before.

For FPS - need look exactly to map.
Usually this goes to recreate brushes created from static meshes. Or make them usual mesh actors, where possible.
