Waht is wrong wit diz?
(to avoid a terabyte of writing I'll just list off any issues)


Pic #1:
Spoiler below!

-Fogs not colored (and more than likely fade distances aren't fixed)
-Light dust particles aren't colored
-Orange lights on the walls around the edge of the room don't look like they fit with the rest of the area.
-Floor tile almost seems too big (the ground looks like a giant brown sponge)
-Walls are missing welders (they need to go between every wall in the castle + mansion sets)
-For the wood ceiling, the direction of the plane is perpendicular to the direction of the broken ceiling piece. work with the tile/scale amounts to line everything up perfectly.
-Needs more overall detail.


Pic #2:
Spoiler below!

-Those billboards honestly look awful: uncolored, clipping through static objects like no one's business. Look at FG maps for a better reference. Billboards are probably the most difficult thing to work with on this engine, just make a lot of them, and make them very faint (dark colored, leave alpha @ 1). Your color values shouldn't really exceed 1.5. There was a billboard thread a while back I wrote a wall of text for, you should try finding that if you have the time.



Pic #3:
Spoiler below!

-Building default walls on top of default. S'not good. Use the default for the ground level, then extensions for each level above that.
-"DAT BILLBOARD" indeed... just read the stuff for pic #2 again.
-Very empty
-Lighting is very poorly done, there is absolutely no color or contrast, just white lights spammed everywhere.


Was this your first time mapping?
Yes, it is my first time mapping. I'm new to scripting and mapping, but i'm getting a hang of it. I'm currently learning on Variables.

I thought they can by checking the "Cast shadows" box on the plane tabs.

The light is actually lighter in there, it's more orange than brown/red

Dangit... I see this picture is pretty dark. Sorry.



Maybe some decals...

Trying is the first step to success.

Yes. Put some decals like the rust decal.

Screenshot 1 : I like the details. Keep it up.
Screenshot 2 : It's too empty. Put some stuff or lights in there. And some decals too.

Decals have been put, sir!
But when it comes to "Stuff", I'm lost. This is a place where people work, and to me it seems most obvious that the corridors aren't stopping people when they were running through them.
What you cannot see is that the floor is cracked. Would that be enough?

Well, if you don't want to add boxes or other stuff there, put some hanging lantern or other light environment.

Too dark!!!
Look at the sky! It's blue. And the moon is shining pretty bright! You need a box light, and maybe some pointlights to create some shadows from the trees! Would be really awesome

Ok, thanks for the criticism/help! Is there anyway I can take down the brightness of the boxlight?

edit: ok, so I seemed to have fixed it, I changed the color diffuse to a dark blue and it looks pretty good. Will post more screenshots soon c:

also, a bit off-topic, but how do I make it so that grass(follage_grass in Static_Objects) is possible to walk through? It's hard as a rock and usually glitching me out. I've looked around the internet but can't find any help.
