I actually can't reproduce that. What texture it was? From what type.


Albedo, here a quick demonstration, maybe I just explained poorly https://puu.sh/zqnEh/4d042a5074.mp4

So thought I'd let you know Windows SmartScreen (LOL) detects the new version (a517) as malware. Dunno why.

This is on win10

I scanned all files to be sure, and there is noting wrong with them. Windows usually mark exe files downloaded from web as dangerous and potential malware.

I never said it was a real threat :P

Just that the exe was flagged by windows (Windows Defender), which tends to block non-microsoft files usually. Posted it here so future users aren't surprised if windows flags their download, that way they know it's safe.

Greetings again Ozone.

Firstly, the progress is impressive, I now feel that I can do all my mapwork in your editor - congrats. Having said that, I'm not a good mapper, if I do much it's to correct or understand issues for the LOUD AI Project. Having said that, I have a simple question - how can I eliminate a decal entirely from a map ? I have a map that has custom decals - too many of them in fact - and I'd like to remove most of them, and also remove the custom resource from the map folder.

I understand how to remove the decals from the map ( I select a decal from the list, press 'Select All', wait for the decals to appear highlighted on the map, and press Del key to remove them from map). However - the decal remains in the list of decals -- and I cannot remove the resource file since, if I do, the map will no longer load in the editor. How to entire remove even the reference to the decal from the map ?

Somewhat related - is there any way to swap one decal with another - like as with textures ?

If there's an answer - great - and thanks in advance.

When you remove all decals from map, save it and reload, then references will refresh. Decal list don't store decals itself, but references and configuration. But that's not saved into map, only decal instances are. When editor load map it search for all similar configured decals and marge them into these "types".

You can't replace decal with another, but you can select decal type and change its textures. Then all of its instances on map will also change.

The structure is that there is global DecalType that holds information of textures and render type (albedo, normal etc.). All instances only have position, rotation and scale. But when you save, all texture and render data are saved with instances, because that is how decals are stored in scmap file.
Its maybe not the most intuitive way, but when you get use to it, it will get more powerful. You don't need to search for similar decals every time to duplicate it or create it from scratch. Its more like a brushes, when you select paint and just stamp them.
