Texture covering 2/3 of the map??

Post by Merkavoth »

Hi there.
Recently i tried some map making and i mostly succeded, only for some reason only like 2/3 of the map is seen with texture. The remaining 1/3 is there, units can walk there, although they walk in air ;]
That's some fishy thing with texture map i suppose, the rest (metal, height and features) are there.
Any ideas?

Is your texture sized correctly? What format is it in compilation?

Any chance you made a map whose dimensions are not a multiple of 2?

Dimensions are as follows:
metal map - 513x193
height map - 513x193
feature map - 513x193
texture map - 4096x1536

..so a map of size 4x3.

Maps' dimensions must be multiples of 2.

Um... isn't it 8x2? I wanted it that way...
Someone told me all but texture map has to have a multiplier of 32 (+1) as a dimension...

The texture is 1024 pixels per 2 map size units. So 4096x1536 = 4*1024x1.5*1024 = 8x3

Yeah my previous post was a 5am-mathjob. So you want a 4096x1024 image as a texture map, metal & height maps of 513x129, and a feature map of 512x128.

They are now (for a 8x3 map)
513x193
513x193
512x192
4096x1536

and still the same effect:

you must not use increments of 64 (or 512 in case of the texture maps). you have to use 128/1024.

Peet's post said a multiple of 2.

That's smart talk for even. Stop using smart talk. I know it hurts to dumb ourselves down for others, but sometimes you just have to make sacrifices.

In my experience the word even is normally used with positive integers. Map sizes are not.
