ohhh no look who dusted off 3DS Max/Renx

Messing around with the Bump Environment to make a realistic ice reflection. I think it looks rather good.

add diffrent levels of brightness to the reflection_texture, and see the result :p

if you make the texture even brighter it will almost look metallic lol

to bad my 3ds max doesnt work properly on Win10 :(

This is what I have been up to. I originally hex edited the hourglass map like 2 years ago with RxD textures but never finished it. Now I made all the walls and ceilings for traditional flying maps. Plus some RxD extras.

I thought about that but I cant do it. I cant punch a hole in the original map unless I import and redo the entire map. Everything that is Orange is the original map and cant be edited. Everything else is what I added.

 

All thee flying parts plus extras ( what is actually exported to the w3d used. )

This is what is called the Emis part of the map and provides extra visual Detail and other things in a separate w3d file. The purple is physical boundary around rocks and other things for vehicles. The yellow squares are trees and what allows me to change the trees without editing the actual map.

I don't see how flying vehicles will make the map less bad. You'd actually need to remove either the hill or the Base defenses to make it interesting imo.

I agree, turning off the obelisk and AGT would make it a lot more interesting

Well it may be awful with flying vehicles. We will see. Basically opening up the door for sniping on top of the hills. I was also planning to allow hill camping but deny damage to the back buildings from the hill ( or all buildings ) with some code. We can definitely try disabling the base defences and see how that is.

Base defenses off make hourglass much more enjoyable. Also @BigWrench you know we all love u right ?

people hate hourglass as it is, no base defence might change that, a rxd wont imo

Kinda hard to reply to those uphill snipers if the only way to reach them is to use a flying vehicle which dies so, so quickly against those very snipers though.

I wouldn't be against trying w/ main base defense off but leave the guard towers and such. Could add an interesting twist but I'm pretty convinced it's still going to be a whorefest as soon as we allow hill camping.

Nice code!  Can't we get this in islands aswell @BigWrench? Might fix the b2b issue there aswell.

Hex made it, Y and Z for what side on the hill for each team. But you can also use two script zones (one per team)

Ah, Thats how I was going to do it with zones. But that looks even better.
