My mix map is coming along so well, here i am all concerned about the file sizes of my little 3d models when suddenly my lsd file jumped from must of been 1mb or so to 18, I just want to check here to see how other LE uses may of did to resolve this issue. Is it the pathfinding?


Thanks for any help!

No acid jokes.. I did not consume the lsd Razz

Ill throw this question in while i'm at it ;p

Take a look at this taken from LE:

index.php?t=getfile&id=14793&private=0

Notice i tried to take the texture used on the red power plant and make it yellow, all I did was use programs like Paint.net/painshopro8 used the simple color changes features it has and with them it's easy to change to a solid color like.. blue or green, it doesn't like yellow, it quickly scrolls through from green to orange leaving you with a.. greenish yellow

Thanks I doubt he would approve but when i fix all the bugs and inprove it i was thinking ill show it to him see if he approves but you can't see anything from what I showed here's the nod base:

index.php?t=getfile&id=14796&private=0

I know the map needs work i'm trying to make a classic C&C style level.. as of now there's only 1 Obelisk and 1 AGT, the brokan obelisk is just there for show

Bashing defence system: I just made this in a few days by the way it's no attempt at a professional map i'm just doing it for fun and for my little server ill be running, i use gmax but i don't even know how to blend textures, so you can see my bad attempt at classes c&c style ridges Razz Anyway its a work in progress and any suggestions are greatly appreciated

I can confirm that yes, the pathfind data is what makes your level file so big.
No I dont know why its the size it is.

Yeah you probably need pathfind blockers around a few places like the gun turrets and anywhere else special (including any areas where units cant get to but where pathfinding might try to go anyway)

FYI, I suggest you download the .lvl files for the stock multiplayer maps (not sure where to get them these days) and see where Westwood map designers placed pathfind blockers.
