Re: map creation question

So we would have to use an older version to save/load correctly?

This working in multiplayer? Where can i look more into this?


EDIT: anyone know about launching spring.exe with cli options? to load a map from ip:port? Or if there is a cvar doc?

Re: map creation question

Thanks again, suppose it was my fault all along.

As for terrain deformation, i'm glad there is a way to take it out. Seeing as with the way we are trying to save the gamestate and reload, deformation would be one of the things excluded.

Re: map creation question

Thats interesting....

Well, i was able to get the smf format working, however the map i made is almost entirely water......Is there a way to control where the water level is? Or will i have to change the height map to be....higher up or something?

Any tips would be helpful, thanks for the reply.

Re: map creation question

We've already been looking over those pages. But are having issues finding the software mentioned as it is a little outdated. And the material on sm3 is a little confusing, and with no real-world examples of working maps to look at, it's difficult to grasp how it works. Thanks for the reply though, ...

Re: Springie the AutoHost

I'm interested in using this for a small project. I've been reading a good bit, but im finding it hard to get a clear set of instructions on how to get this working. I got the source and the binaries, both of which i have working. It's confusing me a bit by requiring a log in? Hoping someone can cla...
