Yes, it is in loading/default.swf.

But why map AND hell map? One type (usual map) should be enough fot everything ))


Because who cares... That's how they have it, so that's how it is. I am guessing it's due to the fact that hell maps use different type of splash screen than normal maps.

Are they still available somewhere?

I'd like to take a look at https://github.com/OpenTechEngine/ModelingTools/tree/master/MD5/Blender/io_export_md5_obj but it's 404'ing me.

https://github.com/motorsep/blender-idtech4-md5

If this one still works with 2.79, then I'd say it's better than the one you are asking about. It has nicer GUI and better workflow (at least for me).

In D3BFG it can be possible to set this flag in mapDef.

It is affect to level loading, e.g. it will put the name of current loading map to 'txtHellName' instead 'txtName' for normal map (whithout this flag).

What is this flag for? What ID want to divide type of maps for?

Only one thing when it can be useful IMO - it is reuse one map in one time as normal map (mars city before invasion) and in other time as hell map (MC after invasion). But looks like it's not.

Thanks.

Probably a text to be displayed in the splash screen Flash GUI (the one you see between levels).

I am pretty sure that as soon as Beth and/or Activision find out about what you are doing, they will slam you with C&D letter (especially if you release anything for Doom 3 with Quake 4 assets).

Other than that it looks cool :)

It suppose to be like that. Armature, no matter how many bones it contains, is an "object" in Blender. So it will be selected as a single entity. You have to enter Edit or Pose mode to manipulate individual bones.

Whoever put it there should have foresaw that eventually it will go down. Gotta use Google for everything - if Google goes down, it means the end of the digital world  ::)

Is AAS only needed for multiplayer?

No, AAS is for AI. Maps have to have that for AI to properly and effectively navigate the map. Nothing to do with multiplayer.

I think it was assumed you'd use DR for the engine so not much work was put in fixing issues with the built in editor, right Motorsep?

That is correct. Doom 3 Radiant was simply made workable (just because it was more work to rip it out completely) with the engine. Although it should be as usable as original Doom 3 Radiant.

You should really use DarkRadiant for Doom 3 mapping and use one window where you switch between perspective and ortho views with hotkeys, like in Blender.

Doesn't look like it's working. Or maybe screenshot is too small. I don't see any halo/bloom around headlights.

You might want to check r_* cvars to see if HDR is on and glow is on.

Material:

_glow.tga is the same as _lights.tga, but half the resolution (512^2 is for lights and 256^2 is for glow)

I sent you the material, so it's all there. It is indeed a glow (Image-based Bloom) with halo.

And no, it's not from RB. In fact, RB was used as base, before tr3b added bunch of fancy things.
