Several Questions!

Postby ezzie10 » June 20th, 2011, 2:11 am

Hi, I'm new here and I've tried to search to get answers for my questions but can't find the answer to help.
My first question is: I have designed a main character with a program called "Art of Illusion" and I want to use it as a main character for the player to choose. Could it be possible to use it and if so, how can I use this character?
2: Can you make a create-a-character at the start of te game? How can you do this if it can be done?
3: Once you delete a few blocks in the ground, is it possible to retrieve them?
4: Is it possible to make the player's character climb trees or fly? if so then how?
5: Is there any other way to create a server that can be connected with a laptop?

I am using the 2.5 b Version of Sandbox (Since I couldn't seem to make 2.6.1 b work) and my knowledge of codes is quite low, but if anyone can help for that I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hi ezzie10 and Welcome to the Forum.

I may not have all the answers you need, but if you search the forum and ask heaps of questions, then you should not have any problems.

Art of Illusion can export OBJ models. You are in luck. Sandbox will import m2d, m3d and OBJ models. I am still learning this very procedure of importing OBJ models. I am currently searching forum for instructions or tutorials to help me also. Whatever I find, I will be glad to pass on to you.

Once the model is imported, it can be selected via your function key F1.

Retrieving blocks. Yes, that little annoyance. I am overly familiar with that one. I still do it from time to time. If you have hit the delete key and created the little terror, CTRL+Z (undelete) usually does the trick. If after much editing you notice a block missing, been there done that, select the bottom of the hole and roll you mouse-wheel up. This will restore the raw cube with the default texture (usually grass). Once the cube is replaced, make sure that area is selected, and choose a texture using the F2 key. There is probably a simpler method, but that is how I do it.

My skills are somewhat lacking, well, non-existent, for making characters climb etc and server issues. Suggest a search of the forum. I am sure that there will be a tutorial or general info that can help with that.

Sorry if I am a bit vague on this stuff. I am relatively new and am still learning. I hope I have not added to your confusion.

Best method of fixing a problem in two easy steps.

1. Search the forum and ask questions
2. Goto step #1

ezzie10,

A good place to start is the Sandbox Wikki. The link is at the top of this page.

Regards

Hello, ezzie10. Welcome to the Sandbox Community! I have a few answers:
3: You can use the "Undo" action in Edit Mode by pressing the "Z" button on your keyboard.
4: There is no way at the moment to fly in Sandbox, and the only way for a player to climb a tree is to make a tree out of geometry.

Hope that helps!

1) export as .obj, import to blender or other animation program, animate, export to md3, md5 or iqm format (seeing as the .obj format is a static format)
2) it might be possible, you would need to create a code to load parts of a character, such as legs, torso (body), head, etc
3) Undo, as said before.
4) you could use clip to create an invisible ladder-like thing, but the animation wouldn't be realistic, check out the ladder map that comes with sandbox. Actually, that's only in 2.6.1... never mind.
