Firstly... Save that image as a PDF or Jpeg, Place it in "packages/leotextures/dev/" ensure the image name stays as "dev-texture-circle" as to avoid confusion... now... at the bottom of... Look... you know what? Here!

Download the texture files... Here

Create a new folder called "leotextures" and place the "dev" folder and all its contents in there. Then in "data/default_map_settings.cfg" add this at the bottom:

Code: Select all

exec "packages/leotextures/dev/package.cfg"
Save it, and run sandbox. Simple!

This was actually a glitch i found with the geometry. You see i had this "Ring made out of geometry" and when i copied and pasted them close to each other the geometry would intertwine and deform and if i made a long line like you see in the image and stand on it the sandbox engine would think I'm basically sliding down a sloped surface, If that makes since.

The texture I designed would aide you with the construction of a circle. All you need to do is put an angle of about 45º all the way around the inside of the circle, this wouldcreate the "movement" effect, you could try making a square of "No-clip" material around the inner edges of the tunnel with the outside remaining as "clip" as to prevent the player from accidentally beng dropped out of the tunnel. As yet... I havent quite figured out how to create an inner circle template for sandbox, I'll work on that soon though.
