DM-Temple of Aphrodite for UT99

Post by mikaeolke » Wed Feb 16, 2022 12:37 am

DOM-Temple of Aphrodite is a UT 2003/2004 map originally created by Tynan Sylvester fof Double Domination game mode.
Map have amazing design and excellent gameplay, but for UT 2003/2004.
The goal is to recreate such amazing map for UT99 to play DM for 2-4 players.
Now converted only Geometry + Textures, without meshes and pickups.
But anyway result is pretty good.

Wow, the original map was always one of my favorites of the CBP1. A conversion to UT99 is an ambitious project. I hope it has the same music as the original :D

I need some help with importing of meshes.
I have 3 files:
Ty_GreekSmeshes.usx-Large.MountainPeak(StaticMesh).uc
Ty_GreekSmeshes.usx-Large.MountainPeak(StaticMesh)_a.3d
Ty_GreekSmeshes.usx-Large.MountainPeak(StaticMesh)_d.3d
When I try to compile this files into .u file via tool UMake.exe I have an error "Superclass Resource of class MountainPeak not found."
How to solve it?
This is text from Ty_GreekSmeshes.usx-Large.MountainPeak(StaticMesh).uc:
//=============================================================================
// MountainPeak.
//=============================================================================
class MountainPeak extends Resource;

#exec STATICMESH IMPORT NAME=MountainPeak FILE=MODELS\MountainPeak_d.3d

Maybe try changing Resource to Decoration? Also change the Exec coz this will no longer be a STATICMESH.

Hrm...

Okay, maybe in a bit of a roundabout way... but have you tried placing the mesh on an empty map in UT2004 editor, converting it to a brush, saving that map and exporting it to .t3d? (is it possible or is it not possible?)

I have tried to locate infomation on this very subject and in my searches, I have not found a good set of instructions for this process. If someone with ut2k4 -> ut99 mesh experience could write up a brief tutorial (ideally with pics, list of tools), like I did for Photoshop 3D skin painting that would be much welcomed and lauded addition to ut99.org's knowledge base.

I will add another meshes myself.

Also I have one question - how to add collision to mesh? Now possible to go through all such meshes. Need to fix it.

Gorgeous map.

Music reminds me of "Centurion: Defender of Rome". (remember that one?)

The most lasting memories of Unreal have always been not so much the size or detail in a map, but that the author did something different, original and unique.

Nice work Tynan :tu:

Download UE viewer -> open the mesh file pack from UT2004' StaticMesh folder -> export mesh from current pack find the desired texture -> import to MilkShape3d as UT2004 psa/psk -> then add a joint assign joint into group done -> export mesh as psk/psa wise -> compile with UT99

UT99 does not support the exact collision like UT2004, but you can add collision cylinder also blockall from Keypoint
