Waterfall
« on: June 24, 2014, 07:42:16 AM »
Hello everyone!

How do I create a waterfall?
I've created an sector, then placed the "flow medium" and "alter sector - water" things inside and the floor/water texture moves, but how to make the side textures move too ?

Unlike most doomclones, the waterfall feature is actually a gameobject and not a property of that side. If you open up the first level (L30.map) you'll see some examples. The object is one of the "alter things" and is thing# 1541.

Basically the linedef closest to a thing #1541 becomes the scrolling texture. It takes some work if you have really tight linedefs, and some of the official maps actually have problems with the wrong linedef scrolling. So make sure you test it in game. I recommend making it one of the very last changes that you make so that you won't forget to test it again at the very end.



There's tons of info on the Wiki site now. I try to keep it up to date with the newest things that I've learned.
