How to Make Cubemap Resolution 1024x1024?

A Forum Thread for Source Engine

Hi, i want to make a 1024x1024 big cubemap. However there is no such option in hammer. Max is 256x256.


Using SmartEdit in hammer, i saw that the max (256x256) value corresponds to 9. made it 10. Now, it wont give me build them cause the cubemap resolution wants to be 2048x2048. (watafak valve)



Continuing from 9 to 10 etc, it gets 4096, then 8192, then 16384.....

For some reason they decided to skip 512 and 1024, the only sane hd resolutions.

    Ahhhh i got it... Im telling it how to do it, for people stuck like me
    Here it is: Your screen needs to be 4x times bigger than the cubemap resolution you are building. In my case i want 1024x1024. This means i should have at least a 4x1024, 4096x4096 screen. No worries though, cause nvidia has a Dynamic Super Resolution in the settings (makes your resolution bigger than your screen). Just see how to enable it for the game and bam.
