I haven't really got that much time to update this

Posted 03 February 2001, 17:11 | by | | Perma-link

Ok, I haven't really got that much time to update this, as I'm at home today rather than work, and so only have an ickle dial up account that costs me local rates - (I know, there are other ISP's and such like, that either take a flat fee and the like, but the one I'm with has free (yes that's right free) tech support, (0800) only requires me to login once every 90 days rather than the usual 30, and gave me a free domain name, so all in all, not too bad a deal. Anyhow, I should be getting ADSL next week Grin

Basically, the earlier versions of the levels are all up here, just not directly linked to atm - if you wish to download them, then go to the downloads section and then just right click on the link and in the context menu select "copy shortcut", then paste it into the address bar. Then you just need to modify the file name slightly:
DM-WellsStreet4th4.zip
DM-WellsStreet4th3.zip
DM-WellsStreet4th2b.zip
DM-WellsStreet4th2.zip
DM-WellsStreet4th.zip
However, they're not much good without the explanations, and will be of more use in a tutorial version that I'm starting very soon…

In the mean time, I'm going to get on with the level, as soon as I've finised copying some of my CD's on this pc so that I can listen to them, have the Unreal Tourny cd in one drive, and the Direct CD I use for backing up the level in my CD-RW drive…

I'll post the chages up on Monday I'm sure.

As promised, I've started!

Ok, as promised, I've started! Grin

I've uploaded the map and texture files, but so far have only linked to the latest one, I'll set up the others over the weekend, along with explainations of what each one's doing, what I learnt from it and so on.

[13/05/2011: They are no longer available]

See you later.

I have all the files on CD

Ok, so I have all the files sorted out on CD, and they'll be appearing on here soon…

I'll also be adding a few notes and the like to talk you through the creation process and my thinking behind the level at the time.

I guess I should tell you what I'm building

Posted 31 January 2001, 13:37 | by | | Perma-link

Oh yeah, I guess I should also give some indication of what I'm building...

Basically, it's the office I work in… eventually it will be most of the building, including my major clients as skins, etc, etc… nothing too ambitious for a first attempt or anything…

I have most of the rooms of my main area built, and some desks and the like, more to come soon.

I'll try and get some downloads up soon too… need to take out a few very large textures that aren't needed or used, and make a temporary texture package 5meg Sad

They're at home at the moment, so there won't be anything available until at least tonight, if not tomorrow…

Jumping on the band wagon

Posted 31 January 2001, 13:01 | by | | Perma-link

Ok, everybody else seems to be doing them, or has done them, so I'm going to attempt to do one too… (Although I'd understand if you didn't hold much hope out for it, looking at my previous success with diaries elsewhere…)

But anyway, I'm going to collate a load of information I've picked up from numerous sites, provide links to others and so on and so forth, hoping to help you by providing something useful at the end of it.

So yes, you may have guessed from the URL, I'm going to start with my Unreal Tournament level I've been building, it's in its fifth re-build of the main floor plan, and currently has a load of Building Blocks in place, and some rather unwieldy textures in one of the texture files, which is why it's not up on the site yet…

I'll go and write up some FAQ type bits on another page soon so that this page doesn't get too huge Wink
