Two problems: merging bsp and making curved bsp

Post by [~]RUFX[~]RoninMastaFX » Sun Mar 16, 2008 1:42 am

I am still confused on how to merge bsp and no idea on how to make curved bsp. Aalexanderrr said for Merging BSP that you have to do Polygons>Merge, but it never, ever worked for me (I must be doing something wrong), and the curved bsp is well beyond me.

Any sort of tut would be good for me. :)

You cannot merge surfces cos you have to align them to the wall first. About curves: you should use 2d shape ed, you make nice curve and then transform it into the brush , rescailing and rotating it in order to fit in nicely.
I will write a tut on this matter as soon as I get back.

OMD, how can I explain that? hmm
The surfaces for merging (but first Align to floor [usually]) have to be on the same height or have to be the same angel ... something like this

and the same texture!

What I want to do next: Joining an UDK team (uncertain however) and improve 3D modelling and texture editing skills
Thanks to those who visibly supported me until/at the end!
