View Full Version : Is my Editor Broken?!
11-11-2007, 06:46 AM
The reason i think it may be broken is because i don't seem to be able to add textures too anything iv'e looked at loads of tuts but it still doesn't work here is what i do:
1. Make a floor from the cube
2. select the top part of the floor
3. Go to generics and pick a texture
4. click on the csg add button
5. NOTHING HAPPENS!
So is it broken or am i doing something wrong?!

You cannot add a texture directly to the floor, it has to be used in a material. Click on the floor and select a material instead of a texture.
PS: If you dont have a light placed within your map make sure you do or you will see nothing but pitch black, you can also switch to unlit mode which lights up everything without having a light.

There are only 3 skydome meshes in the package, the rest are materials that you can use to change the current ones on the meshes.

Don't take this too harsh, but you should search a little through the forum. Many of your answers are there, and even there's a sticky with some simple, yet very useful with rookies as we, tutorials.
Also, take a look to this page:
It's a good page where explains the basics of primitives, meshes, cover system and so on.
