View Full Version : Map Scaling not working..

22nd Jan 2005, 10:24 PM
Well i just realised the map I am working on (My first map ever) is just a little too big so I wanted to use the Map Scaling feature.. I type in my value (0.75) set everything to true and click OK - and nothing happens... Whats the trick to this?

Select all brushes and actors, then click on Tools → Scale Map, enter a factor and click OK.Just tried it myself because I'd never done it before... Be wary. This works for BSP fine, but it totally screws up any and all other actors like static meshes and fluid surfaces. What kind of map is it, and how do you know it's too big?

Its lucky cause i am only in the BSP stages of this map. Its a CTF map and I know its to big because I Placed a Pawn->UnrealPawn->XPawn in my map to see how my scale was. (Granted I should of done this first).

Thanks for the advice.

you must select everything before you do it as said

and it will convert everything (including light radiuses) except anti portals and terrains, which you can rescale manually

i use it all the time, i overscale litteraly everything :)

Ok I am having some trouble with the selection:
If i choose select all actors then is scales down the wireframe of the map but not the actual surfaces when I do it.
If I select all surfaces Scale Map does nothing :o

select all actors
now "rebuild" (the button, must push it @!111) or the changes wont show up

Awesome, thanks for all of your help.

BTW: I think your map work is awesome :)
