    It would be great if someone could get on Teamview and steam voice chat with me and try to help me with displacements and making a windy road. I've already watched youtube tutorials... didnt help. Thanks

    Motanum's displacement guide is really helpful, even if you suck at listening

      Feel free to add me on steam, i should be able to help out with mapping related questions in general.
      I don't have teamviewer installed though.

        I was able to help him out with a little over Teamview and then showed him an example over Twitch.tv

        Taught him to make them ^2 displacements, use blend textures for cliffs, only select sides you want to be a displacement, if you want large cliffs on a smaller scale, use multiple ^2 displacement brushes, paint the geometry to make them all pointy and whatnot, then smooth them, then lastly Sew and Paint the alpha of the rock/cliff were the last two things.

          Put displacements everywhere, power of 4, make them clip all over the place, nodraw them and make them all func_detail. That should help your problems. :thumbsup:

              @Motanum Where are you? I totally forgot you existed.

              Oh, and yeah, try to keep your displacement powers low.

              P.S. Luffaren has Teamviewer, don't trust him. The cake is a lie.

              Motanum is fine but I think he left ze a long time ago. I'm working with him on a mod for Portal 2 that will feature new voicecastinmg a piantgun (one that spray the gel out of the gun) and new levels with progressive storyline! Also there's a completelynew portal gun.

              I'm in charge of the portalgun exporting issues and texturing. The model was made by someone else as well.

              I can't find the good god damn link on this shitty laptop so I can't currently show it to you, but Motanum is certainly not gone xD he's just busy with what seems to be an amazing new Portal 2 mod!
