[WIP] VR mod7:50 AM 21-Dec-06 : Quote : Report : #

This is a stadium mod based on VR (vertual reality). The sort of VR where its made up of what looks like loads of 2D outlined shapes stuck together.

Some Screens!





Any comments would be nice!

Yay! i have some screenies, seeing as its my first mod, does anybody know any good image upload sites with direct image linking?

And also i have another question: My mod uses loads of black (RGB: red:225 green:225 blue:225)and all of my black textures are appearing "transparent" would i have to make all of my black textures, like, 224 on all RGB to stop this? (on a last note my alpha channels are not black)

for the images use either http://imageshack.us/ or http://photobucket.com/ (you have to register to use photobucket)
For the second, try out to change the values to 224...
or check your alpha layers again...

Well i tried to change the S textures on the platform (1st pic) no difference

Thinking about it ill slip this onto the TM-forum, any ideas about what it is tell me. And ill keep trying to change the textures until they might get right. I LOVED the idea sinse the start and i am not going to give up on this mod!

Looks really cool I like the transparency actually, it helps add to the effect. Although the brown track parts with green lights look fugly.

i agree to some extent, transparency is cool. but when you drive a track its like theres an earthquake onscreen. its plain undrivable.

lol, well, pm me and ill sort it out. Maybe another tester could be useful, i'll see how it ends up.

News ( ): I've changed many of the S textures to a dark grey and the inflatables seem to be playing up less

And just to let you all know, "transparency" of the textures. Its not meant to be transparent like glass, im sure it might look good as transparent but i guess i used the wrong word to describe it, when i started messing around with black. The textures are meant to make it look "solid" meaning that it should be opaque, giving it a nice effect. But hoo hey! I never mentioned this, i was planning to mod all enviroments so i could make a sort of transparent version of these future mods .

Your D textures seams to have been saved as a dds5 texture so they can be transparent. The normal "format" for this textures is dds1 (without alpha).try to save your D textures as dds1 and it should resolve your problemes.

Thanks ArNoz i'll try that

@alselius: thanks, this is a sort of "neon" mod but i thought the words VR fitted it better, anyway.

it worked! thanks a lot!!
