    Alrighty.
    Stuck with the extruder?
    Daren't click on it in case it blows up your machine?
    Can't work out how to do stuff with it?
    Ask here, no matter how trivial & you shall be answered (though I reserve the right to an occasional dash of sarcasm).

    You people had better post questions, or I'll be forced to assume that you're all having fun extruding stuff & I'll release a NEW, extra-complicated version of the extruder. Yes, one where you have to type in the QUATERNIONS yourself! (kidding :p )

    could someone find a pic of a teacher in a mortarboard to put here? I think it would be amusing. ta.

    Ya know, I just can't help but giggle when I read phrases like, "use the extruder tool", or "EXTRUDE THIS!". :D

    Ok ok ok, family tech forum and all that. Er uh *cough*, um, I played with Tarquin's extruder tool *giggle*, and all I got was an eight inch sausage.

    stomp stomp stomp stomp slam, insane laughter.

    BB.

    Notice how "rude" is part of EXTrudeR.

    well I have a terrible filthy mind, and I must say I hadn't spotted that. So it's just you. pervert :D

    (and hey, just to show, it was me that first said that the TakeThat song 'back for good' has a line about ... *cough* no, better save such depravity for OT ;) )

    no-one has questions about using the damn thing...
    [homer]I don't know if that's bad or good :(

    (the frogurt is also cursed!)

    Hey tarquin, I made a nice looping with your extruder! I've attached a few pics of it.

    If you wanna ride the looping yourself (it uses interpolation points), go to this thread to download the testmap.

    First 2 pics are from the looping itself (not connected to other tunnels yet) and the 3rd pic has been taken while riding it (yes I'm up-side down!! :D).

    Re: ok

    The looping uses interpolation points, like the city intro. Touch the trigger and to start the looping.

    The idea is to insert this looping into a high-speed tunnel system (which I've already done now). After entering the tunnel system, you approach the looping at high speed; when you're very close to the looping, you'll trigger the interpolation path, which will make you go upside-down :D through the looping and release you at the end, so you can go on through the high-speed tunnel till you reach the enemy base. :)

    yes, you DO need trigers to signal the game to make the player follow a path and...do the l-o-o-p! (with crystal voice.)

    Never got anything decent from your extrude :) i have not played with it long enought.
