GenSurf Quake2/3 map surface generator David Hyde 1.9 Fixed support for curved surfaces with the Q3Radiant plugin version. This change does not effect the standalone or QERadiant plugin. Changed caption buttons - context-sensitive help button is no longer present, and the main GenSurf window can be minimized. Context-sensitive help is still available by right-clicking on a control or pressing F1 while the control in question has the input focus. 1.8 Beta I'm calling this a beta because there are issues with Q3 curves that I'm not quite sure of. As far as I know GenSurf isn't doing anything *wrong*, but it's possible that there might be currently unknown workarounds that solve some of the problems you might encounter if you use GenSurf to generate curved surfaces. Stay tuned. Unzip to... well... anywhere you want. It doesn't matter. New features: - As implied above, support for Quake 3 Arena, including the ability to use curved surface patches rather than the standard triangular prisms. Be sure to read all the warnings on the web page before spending (wasting) a lot of time with this feature. - Relaxed size constraints on the grid. You can now produce a 64x64 grid of triangles... that's 8192 triangles... think about that before you do it. This change was made at the request of several users who know what they're doing (namely, taking a few weeks off while their map compiles). I do NOT suggest using a grid anywhere near this large for "normal" maps, unless you're also using GenSurf's decimation feature. - New generation method... if you own Microsoft Excel 5.0 or later you can use any Excel-valid formula to describe a surface. Not especially useful for terrain unless you throw in a rand() or 2, but might have other applications. - Bug fix: Half-Life maps with decimated grids did not produce the requested hint brushes. This was a carryover from days long ago... well, September... when you couldn't use hint brushes in Half-Life.
