combining maps

Post by Kaal979 » Wed Oct 27, 2010 6:54 pm

I always wondered if its possible to combine maps in Ued.
I know how to duplicate and mirror maps for e.g. CTF but importing seems impossible.
Any ideas?

Yes, it's possible to combine maps. I've done it a million times.

• You can copy paste parts of maps between any number of open unrealeds and notepads.
• You can export your map as unreal text and import it to another.

In either case you need to preopen any resources used by the map you are importing/copying to the current map. This includes textures, weapons packs, music, sounds otherwise what you copied might be missing some actors or have that ugly default texture. This is most easily done by opening the map you want to copy and then where you want it to copy in the same editor.

I usually Open the map I want to copy from.
Select and Copy what I want.
Close that map.

Then - open the map I want to copy to.
Paste it in this map and move it all in one section before it un-selects it, to where I want it.

I have never tried a Whole map though. - hmmmm...

half map problem?

Post by Kaal979 » Sun Nov 07, 2010 1:05 pm

Considering building one half of the map and duplitacte and add the second half for CTF.
Im not sure anymore if this isnt abit confusing for the engine since
my modified character models dont work anymore on one such map.
