Don't forget to take account of the Z LocationOffset in the placement of ammo to avoid stuff falling out of the world or being buried in the floor.

Quick question: it seems that lately some mappers have moved from posting in this topic to create their own... is that really a thing to do, or is this still the "official" topic to post screenshots?
I will certainly post more later on as I advance with this map (between today and tomorrow), but I don't want to be the only one posting here.
Whatever floats your boat, really. If you plan on doing regular updates of map progress, then maybe a new thread would be better. :tu:

That has been VERY annoying. Some of the ammo is too high, some is too low, and some is just right.

I had to keep editing stuff, then pop into the game to make sure it lined up right, then pop back out to move some up and some lower.

Can't you just place ammo in the map, then select all of one particular type (for example, explosive arrow pack) and edit the default properties so that the Z LocationOffset is not a negative figure (either 0 or, as Sektor2111 suggests, 20) and then do this with all the other types?

Same thing applies to the Claw and the TurretLauncher.

Really? :o :shock: Depends on the map I suppose but I would have thought it is one of the more effective of the Chaos weapons for MH and of more use than, say, the Sword or the UtilityGun or normal/poison Crossbow.

@Oijtroc
I thought that in rules was described to not create Chaos links by adding weapons from Chaos in map, right ? And simply allowing mod to do replacements and making map to run in all environments. I don't get your surprised icons. It's that hard to follow rules?

Like the rocket launcher, that wouldn't be included.

Yes, thanks from me as well - though it's an easy mistake to make if one doesn't read through all the posts :wink: :P :)
