Mapping Help
This is the place to ask about mapping problems, techniques, and bug fixing, and pretty much anything else you want to do in the level editor.

For questions about coding, check out the Coding Help thread: http://www.celephais.net/board/view_thread.php?id=60097

Are you using Quake 2 compiling tools specifically. I'm not sure of a suite that does both Quake and Quake 2 maps. 
 
No, I'm using the baseline set that came with ericw's tools. Do I need something specific then? 
 
I am pretty sure ericw's tools only work with Quake and Hexen2.

Try these out:

or here (scroll down a bit):

Kickin, I'll test this out after work and report back any success or failure. Ty man. 
FTE Texture Bug 
Hello, found some bug on md3 models on my q3 map. So I am making map in q3 format and one bug appeared. Look at that:
https://pp.userapi.com/c856036/v856036992/6ca8b/9Q-s-6sd00o.jpg
The part of model is covered with texture and one part is not. It is so weird. The problem is not in model because in darkplaces it works fine. How can I fix that? 
@dumptruck_ds Re: Gate Logic 
So finaly the error report helped nothing.
So I deleted the whole gate logic and rebuild it now.
But now I'm a bit whiser. :)
I think the problem with the infinit loop has something to do with copieng and renaming functions.
It seems, for me, that it's in the program language.
If you copy and rename a bunch of functions it's still a copy of the older one.
So if you trigger the first one the others are also triggerd and this brings the loop.
The only solution for me now is to rename copys one by one to made them separet functions.
It seems that it works now. 
Quake 3 Lightstyle In FTE 
Hello. I am using FTE engine and I have some troubles with lightstyles on my Quake 3 map.

I would like to use some lightstyles on my quake 3 map, so I placed point light with parameter "style 3". After that I compiled the map. Here is the screenshot of light entity settings:
https://pp.userapi.com/c855424/v855424394/7eed6/yMArrcugy8w.jpg

When I launched my map the screen was blinking and the brightness of textures in the room was higher than usual. Check it out:
Here is how the map looks without lightstyles:
https://pp.userapi.com/c849128/v849128517/19e0fa/0_ZQzqu73Sw.jpg
And here is how the map looks with lightstyles (also screen is blinking but you cant see that on screenshot):
https://pp.userapi.com/c855424/v855424476/7f00f/tfH5n_wTbug.jpg

After that I tried to compile this map for qfusion format but no result. May be I have done something wrong. Here is my compiler settings:
https://pp.userapi.com/c855424/v855424394/7eedd/lSHNUFnqW3M.jpg

Does anybody know how to fix it? If this bug can not be solved please tell me. There are already 3 my questions on this forum which were ignored. Thanks. (sorry for my English if I made any mistakes) 
Trouble With Fence Texture 
Hi, I'm trying to make the GoldenEye's Dam, I'm having problems with this fence texture:
https://i.imgur.com/7QerJiv.png
I did exactly what it says here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnSqmHOh3XQ&list=PLgDKRPte5Y0AZ_K_PZbWbgBAEt5xf74aE&index=32
Am I missing some parameters in the compiling tools or something? 
Party Boy 
Is that texture 8bit and inside a wad file or is that an external texture? 
And 
what engine are you using? Not all Quake engines support fence textures...

also the texture name must begin with the { character. 
 
It has 8 bit per channel

It's inside a .wad, I created it with TexMex 3.4

I tried saving it with Use Full Brites on and off

Quakespasm 0.93.1

Yes, it has a Left Curly Bracket 
 
I don't know if it's important but the map is not closed yet, it's leaking 
Can You Upload The Image(or Wad)? 
Then we can determine where this is going wrong.

Somehow I suspect the "color", the garish pink, is getting changed om you. 
 
OK, I fixed, it

I'm working with PS, I was just picking the color from the Quake palette .png from here:

https://quakewiki.org/wiki/Quake_palette

and applying the Paint Bucket over the texture, all of this on RGB Color mode

It didn't work for some reason

I took the texture and on Indexed Color mode, applied the .act palette

Then changed it to RGB Color mode again and exported

It worked

Thanks for the help 
 
Nice Texture! 
How did you obtain the transparant? 
 
It's explained here:

https://youtu.be/xnSqmHOh3XQ?t=362

I extracted the texture from the GoldenEye .rom 
 
With Source, there's a lot of detailed information on in-game units, such as player speed, bounding blocks, etc. Check this page: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Dimensions

Where can I find similar info for Quake 3 and Quake 1? 
Misc_poster 
not sure about Quake 3 but here's some info for Quake 1

http://celephais.net/board/view_thread.php?id=4&start=13030&end=13034 
 
 
Is that velocity in units per second? 
 
Looks like it yeah. 
 
Hi I am trying to make an elevator in my map... the problem I am having is the elevator is triggered by a button... the only problem is when it gets to the bottom it comes back up... how do I make it stop till triggered again at the bottom of the elevator shaft? thanks.

In "vanilla" Quake once a func_plat is triggered it will lower and wait for the player. Once the player steps into the "trigger volume" of the elevator it will rise up.

If you want a elevator that toggles using a button that use a func_door instead. This is covered in my entity tutorial here: https://youtu.be/TQ8MN8V0JuE?t=233

Watch the whole way through as I show how to toggle a door - which is the method you will use to toggle the elevator. 
Two Questions 
1. Hi I am trying to make an elevator in my map... the problem I am having is the elevator is triggered by a button... the only problem is when it gets to the bottom it comes back up... how do I make it stop till triggered again at the bottom of the elevator shaft? thanks.

2. I am trying to make triggerable enemies but when i set them some where and apply a trigger to a dog for example i pass the trigger point and it still sits in the spot i had put it.... 
 
1. There should be a flag to set the elevator to just toggleable.

2. Double check targetnames etc. Should just be a matter of trouble shooting. 
Gillandro 
Often the trick to making an elevator that does what you want is to use the func_door class instead, and vary the lip field to get the height you want. In your case you will want to apply the TOGGLE spawnflag to your "door" so that it never moves without being triggered. 
Preach 
thank you for your help... but what is the plat function for? 
Specialised Task 
func_plat is designed to be an self contained platform that doesn't need any other triggers to function. So it automatically rises when the player steps on it, and automatically descends again afterwards. It's not useless, but it can't really be customised if you want it to behave differently. 
Door Issues 
how do you get a door to go up and down instead of side to side? thanks. 
Re: Door Issues 
Set the angle to -1 for up, -2 for down 
Secrets 
Hi all... I was wondering... when I make a secret door to hide maybe an item or something... what do I do to make the game display a "you have discovered a secret"
message? I know I would probably have to trigger it... or is it in the secret door function as an option? thanks.

never mind...found it just wasn't sure how to delete my previous post about the matter thanks. 
Gillandro 
I think you missed my post above with the YouTube link that explains plats and doors. Here's the link again:

https://youtu.be/TQ8MN8V0JuE?t=233

also here is a long video that explains how secret doors work.

Where Do Black Ops 3 Mappers Lurk? 
Not really sure if this belongs here or in the General thread.

Since creators of custom maps for Black Ops 3, both multiplayer and zombies mode, do exist, where do these people "hang out"? I went through a few large discords I could find, but they had no mapping/modding channels. Wasn't successful at finding some forum-based community either.

What gives?
