Making a dome. Dont bother if u know how 2.
« on: January 07, 2007, 08:59:54 AM »
Ok so if u wanna make a dome just follow what i say. Ok so first u make a brush ( do 1024 by 1024 ) and u put the objects as torus.
Then the wall width should be 16, Number sides is 8 and arc is 180, and Start Angle should be 0. Next the Cross section radius should be 256. Rotation sides should be 8 and rotation arc should be 360. The next two should be zero. Hit ok.
 Then u have a part dome not done yet. Hit ctrl u to ungroup. Then u click on all the part where it caved in ( hold ctrl and click on them). Once u have that then u hit ctrl g to group and then u hit crtl m and do the y axis and type 180 and the it should fit in perfectly. Then theirs ur dome.
 
First tut so dont hate. And i didnt wanna do pictures or clip. sorry.

IM sorry. ..  Not trying to undermind you. . . but cant you make a sphere. ..  Cut it in 1/2 then make hallow using a negative number. . . Seems soo easy to me \  Ot you could take 1/2 a spere and copy another that is a little shallower and use the carve tool .. . I dunno, but these things seems simple to me. . .
oooOOO_OOOooo Im a spider!

When I use the cut in half, then - hollow, it always seems to come up with  invalid figures that dont save or compile.  Is that just on my part?

I have tried the ubercarve. Hammer hates that shit.

I think the new editor is more finicky with invalid objects. I clipped and carved godlike until hammer was crying and soiled; but it didn't give me many invalid solids. Now its like, it invites you to carve, but then you get all up in there and its like "IM ONLY THIRTEEN!" Whiny bitch of an editor.

If it discourages from carving, its a good move

No, I wasn't carving. That'd be a shitty idea...

Im talking about hallowing outward.  With spheres in particular, hammer gets pissed off and just sends me hatemail instead of my sphere-dome-thing.

I like the torus. If you are really tight on faces/brushes, just adjust the parameters to give a less smooth dome.

There is no good reason to use the hallow function for ingame geometry.

EDIT - Plus I am pretty sure the editor uses the same code/logic to carve and hollow. It would be a quick experiment to see if it is giving you the same shapes/cuts.
