View Full Version : How do you do electrical wires?
01-11-2008, 09:12 AM
I've seen a number of maps with telephone/electrical wires (overhead), but I cannot for the life of me figure out how they were done.
Anyone care to explain?
move_rope entity and multiple keyframe_rope entity
make the move_rope(at the start of the rope/wire) and set it's next keyframe to the name of the next keyframe_rope entity. Have as long a chain of keyframe_rope entities as you want.
set the slack to something around 90-110 to look best
you can also change the width, but 2 usually looks good for power lines in the distance

Yeah ropes are always a good touch if for ceiling lights and fixtures.
I like to change the slack on them if theres a lot in a certain area to not look so copied and dull.
