Welcome to CMM

The CMM forum software was recently upgraded, some things may have changed and some things may be broken or not working. Please let me know by PM or on IRC if you have any problems using this forum.

Also, I've removed the skybox and shader links for now, the shader generator page was being abused and as we're moving towards a ue4 mapping base, they're redundant.

Large caverns - SOLVED

Postby RedSnappa » Sat Mar 09, 2013 4:08 pm

What is the best way to make a large cavern? I am thinking to use some patch meshes to create a general shape, then trisoup the ceiling and walls as well as the floor. Is there a better technique?

I think I will trisoup the floor and the ceiling, then use a few more bits of trisoup as needed on the walls. I forgot to say that the patches would be a guide for trisouping that would be deleted once the trisoup is finished.

Update: This is working very well. Trisouping the floor and the ceiling in a cave, then using a few more bits on the walls seems to be the correct approach. I am just winging it rather than tracing around patch meshes.
