Quote from: Giftheck on February 22, 2024, 03:25:48 PMThe code for the console spawn screen is quite different to the PC version. The limit doesn't appear to exist, or at least not as restricted on the console spawn screen.

Man, I hope you're right! I never thought that this could even be a possibility.

This would most certainly be awesome, but I had been under the impression that expanding the unit limit required hacking the .exe. Wouldn't that still apply?

The only Christmas maps I'm familiar with for Battlefront 1 are my own Snowball Fight maps. The latest version can be downloaded here.

For Battlefront 2, Dann Boeing's Christmas in Jinglin' Town is the only one I've really played, albeit briefly.

I guess you're right. I could have sworn I tested vanilla and seen five, but going back in again now, I guess it is only ever is three or sometimes four, depending on the models on screen at the time. I guess I did not realize how few actually do show up.

So I guess getting three of my models to show is a adequate.

Thanks much!

Hey all, so I took up 3D modeling recently (only after 15 years of begging other people to handle modeling issues for me), and I'm having a lot of fun with it. But I do have one issue.

I'm using Blender 3.6 with the SWBF-msh-Blender-IO addon. Works great for weapons and vehicles so far, but there's been a hiccup for character models. I made a few tweaks to some troop models, and the result in-game is that all but one or two of the visible soldier models would go right to low-rez. I have had this sort of thing happen before when using other people's high-poly models, but the ones I was using were not high-poly models, in fact they were slightly modified vanilla models. A couple actually had reduced poly counts from their default form. I then tried just loading an unaltered, default model into Blender, then export it with no changes. That model also caused the troop models to go to low-rez, so obviously it is something to do with the Blender import/export.

I then found there was an export option to "Generate Triangle Strips". Checking this option helps, as it is now up to 3 of the models being visible in high-res. However, I believe there is supposed to be at least 5 in high-res by default. So I'm half-way there, but not all the way there.

Wondering if anyone would know what other else I can try or if there are any settings I need to adjust in order to fix this issue?

Thanks for your time!

This will be in your map's common folder.

BFBuilder\Data###\Common\MSHs

It will be the ones labeled "com_1st_weap_inf_torpedo.msh" and "com_weap_inf_torpedo.msh".

Hey, so any mods/admins that happen to pass by and see this... I submitted the map mentioned in the post above back in late December (See Here), and I don't know if it slipped through the cracks and was forgotten (I know I kept forgetting), or if there was something wrong that it was blocked from approval, but if anyone has time, can they look into it?

Thanks!

Coming soon:

Snowball Fight 3.0

Probably will be a couple days late for Christmas (waited too long to submit it... doh), but nonetheless an attempt to revive an old tradition of mine. See screens below:

I know I've made a deployable B1 Battledroid in the past, and I wanna say I think it was still using the "soldier" class. So hypothetically I would think it should be possible to make a deployable "flyer" class as well. The "droid" class currently used is very similar to the "hover" vehicle class, so you could start by switching "droid" to "hover" and see if that causes any issues. And if it still works, you should be able to switch the class to "flyer", then just copy over the various movement characteristics from the gunship. But try switching the classes first to make sure it doesn't crash.

Would it be alright to upload the unsorted files right now? I was in the process of writing out an email to phych0fred about a bunch of textures and models, but if I might be able to shorten the email if I found some of my items in question among those files.

Thanks!

Didn't quite find what I was hoping to find, but there were still some interesting things in there nonetheless. So thanks to AnthonyBF2 for the original upload as well!

Pretty sure that mysterious CP on the Jabba's Palace map is probably what the Gamorrean Guards use to spawn. They need a spawn point too after all.
