I needed a flight of stairs for the underground level and I did one using the reference below. The stairs are brushes, using the smallest unit available. The term “flight of stairs” represents a continuous series of stairs from one landing or floor to another, and in my case, the underground storage space. Still not
I chose to use development textures for the entire block-out phase, including beta testing, and refining the map. Textures would require a bit of work, as I intend to apply a general style for all of them (if I can’t write a post processing shader to tint the whole view). The engine suffered more changes,
It’s finally official. The engine is working with my custom modification. Lots of code was stripped down, as you probably read in all the past posts, and some 2D stuff was heavily optimized. The engine is still in Alpha state, as many hardcoded functions need to be removed, and some GLSL optimizations need to be
This map is the beginning of a great journey. After getting through the portal, a new world awaits! This is the current progress for the start map: The main idea is to use no more than 10 textures for this intro level, and have some smart progress going on. Some textures are temporary, I’m currently
Last months were filled with joyful Quake related events. If you’ve been reading Inside3D forums or QuakeOne.com, you know what I’m talking about. I really like seeing new projects take off, new faces, old faces, and releases upon releases. Quake’s arena has been so active that conflicts have arisen. Back to our news, the mod-formerly-known-as-chipquake
I spent this afternoon stripping more unnecessary code from DarkPlaces. Today I have removed all demo references, as it’s an obsolete feature. One could easily implement video cutscenes to the engine. The demo functions and references were scattered all over the code, and I found some hacky stuff for timedemo benchmarks. It’s all gone now.
I took a break from QuakeC customization and moved to engine coding. My little experience lead me to learn a bit of C in order to mess with the DarkPlaces source. What I actually need is the power of DarkPlaces without the unnecessary mods compatibility and old Quake functions such as demos, CD playing routines
I wanted to break a little from the regular QuakeC sessions, so I wanted to give another shot to the HUD. The first one – the one you saw in the previous shots, both here and on Inside3D – was an alpha version. It was there just for the positioning. It doesn’t scream “look at
I kept on working and developing the QuakeC source with some new features, which, in order to be tested, needed a test map. So I used QuArK to build a new map with custom effects and entities. I give you… sp_Temple! sp_Temple is a basic map with some geometry, some lighting, and some new entities.
Last night I kicked off my long-awaited (by me) project. I dubbed it ChipQuake, until it starts to shape up into something I can properly name. There is no screenshot yet, as the project is yet in early development changes. Recent activity on Inside3D made me take a decision, a decision to finally start my
