Do you know where the smoke generator is in the Actor browser if not go to effects and scroll down and pick smoke generator
Place it where you want it and set its tag to something like smoke1
next go down to Smoke generator in its properties and set brepeating = true total number of puffs 1000000
not put a trigger in the center of your map and set its event to smoke1 and its collision radius just a little bigger than the total size of you map or the total area around all the starting spots.
and there you go
i can help u with the teleporter stuff if i knew exactly whats wrong....show me a screenshot or send me the map and i can help fix the problem along with add a smoke generator and i can fix the zoning problem if u send me the map cause i think i know what the problem is...

i got the smoke to work...
my teleporters are not working AT ALL, so if possible could you describe how to set up a simple teleporter?
21st Jun 2001, 10:01 PM
what type is it a visible or just normal teleporter?
make the url the tag or the other teleporter and vis versa
i can still help you with the zone thing.....or you keeping your map secret?
21st Jun 2001, 10:17 PM
well its not really a secret, its just that the textures i am using are the strike force textures, and the ones i am currently using total to over 50megs, and (sigh)...... i got 56k (which blows chunks. So i plant to wait till the next local LAN party or just burn it to a cd then sent over to the net or something. if i ran on cable or dsl, id send it right over, but i cant. sorry...:(
BY THE WAY, they are visible teleporters. THANKS, you got me pretty far + i just got some cool ideas
gotta go cuz its my bedtime!!!!!! kidding........ really....... i was kidding.......:mad:

wait you can still send me the map just export it to a t3d go to file and go down to export and send me that. it doesn't enclude textures so the file will be smaller.
22nd Jun 2001, 08:58 AM
mkay, i'll look into that... but is there anyway to export all of your tex.files and ur map to one file like in Quake?
22nd Jun 2001, 02:53 PM
you would have to save all the textures in the unr in MyLevel but that can make the file very large, just zip it all together.
22nd Jun 2001, 09:56 PM
i did the origil size was around 50 megs, so when zipped it was only 18.6 megs
BUT THAT DOESNT MATTER....
i'll just export all the textures i used from different packages (since i didnt use all of them, it just wastes time and space) into one package, so itl take the size to around 4to5 megs unzipped. Infact i'll do it right now
i'm always online at this time
22nd Jun 2001, 10:18 PM
ok when your done send it to me and i can help fix that fish tank problem.
22nd Jun 2001, 10:25 PM
it is done and the final size is.............TADAAAAAH 1.68 megs!
DAMN thats teeny. Could you also describe to me how to enter botpaths? i know where they are in the editor, i just dont know general botpath mechanics. (after all this is my first map)
if you can, i''l email the map to you tommorow mornig
also how do you make that screenshot of your map show up in ut when you start a new practice session?
22nd Jun 2001, 10:26 PM
