Secondary Water Plane?

Recommended Posts

All right, so I'm working on another mod. And as I'm working on item placement, road concepts and what have you, I started thinking about water and that there's only 1 main water plane in the game. And that's the problem I'm having. What if I wanted to add a lake or a pond above the primary water plane, how would I do that? I remember seeing an extra water plane in the editor but it's too small, something like the size of a Tank or an APC. Am I going to need to create a new water plane or something?

Thanks

Afaik its done in max.. And theres more than one.. The ones on the size of a tank/apc is for the pools.. the other is 128 size (pretty big..). and i think you can place them next to each other.

Theres a thread regarding a waterplane for the roundabout/waterfountain: http://bfeditor.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11923

And a tutorial on making custom water objects: http://bfeditor.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=6595

You could also use the waterplanes used in FuShe and so on.. theyre in the water folder in the editor..

I don't remember seeing the 128 size any where.. I'll keep looking for it.

Funny you mention that because... well I'm working on a Titan Version of FuShe Valley. I just don't want to use BF2 content, (other then the terrain file) because I plan on releasing this to some of my buddies who don't own BF2.

I read the tutorial on the water plane. I'll need to find my old copy of Max 7 Trial CD some where since there seems to be issues Max 2009 and the BF2 scripts.

I wonder if Dice would have a problem with me releasing the Titan Version of FuShe Valley... I mean the Sir Community ported Wake Island to 2142 and as we know, they included it in the patch.

Oh and, I'm having quite a few app crashes with the editor opening FuShe Valley, could some one open it up and tell me the terrain height? I'm ballparking a guess of 381 right now and it looks good but IDK.

Thanks TNE, I'll see if I can't get that to work.

Funny you should mention that... because they didn't port it over. They started from scratch which you can tell because it's a horrible conversion. I personally hate it. So yes, they will have a problem with it.

Yeah, but Im pretty shure Sir.Community asked first!..

I am pretty shure theyll have a problem. If you want to use FuShe, youll have to do it from scratch (or ask and pray).. The waterplane is in the water folder next to the pools.. its called waterplane_128 as far as i remember..

It must be a BF2 thing then because there doesn't seem to be anything like that for 2142
