Right on Good to see some more work towards the voxels.
The base of the lamp strikes me as a bit large but could just be me. Here is the lamp from the HRP.
While making the voxels I am trying to be the most loyal as possible to the original 2d sprite. Here´s the original sprite and the voxel side to side:
As you can see in the original 2d sprite, the gray base of the lamp is longer in terms of pixels, so when converting them into voxels I had to keep the same proportion as in the sprite.
The black part of the lamp is a pain in the ass to make as it is round and has a diagonal disposition and voxels are square so it will be time consuming as well.
By the way HRP automatically replaces the voxels with the correspondent polimer in case there´s no polimer the voxel stays.
Here´s how it looks so far in the game (pivots fixed, still gotta fix the rotation colors etc etc):
Picture below: This is the same voxel (not rotated at all) in level 2 Zilla´s Construction, unlike in level 1 Seppuku Station the orientation of the lamp looks good. However if I change the rotation so it looks good in level 1 it would look odd in level 2 or other... that is an echoe when making voxels, unfortunately.
Here some more. This is very time consuming so I will take a little break after this...
Side to side with the original 2d sprite (still incomplete by the way):
P.S. I will need some help finding the part of the shadow warrior game code where the candle animation is. So far I made the three voxels of the candle animation, but I cannot make an animated candle voxel animation like the ripper heart voxels...
172: oh wow just tried void 1.5.0 for both sw and rr and its definitely my preferred port for this play thru beyond the others

Robman: Good ol'gun play haha

172: ya its a good wad as its not too hard or extreme while also being thoughtful of the player. i really should just clear the last few maps before moving onto my raze play thru of neckpage and maybe even blood this time around altho whats prevented me from
Aug 31, 2022 19:30:57 GMT -5
172: getting into blood is that it starts you off with a pitchfork and what i love about 90's fps like doom and of course the build games being sw and duke3d user made city maps and ya even neckpage is that they have pistol start support

Robman: The late 90s was definitely a special time for fps games, I love the era.

Mxrtxn: FPS, Movies, etc, etc... the 90s have a certain "je ne se quois" that I love so much... Games, films, cartoons even, dont´have "that thing" or maybe is just the nostalgia glasses...

Robman: My kids love stuff from the 90s

Robman: Long time no see curseofnight

curseofnight: Sup Rob, hope you're doing well. I never finished my sw map, but I did give up drinking and cigarettes. Just started another playthrough of sw yesterday. On lvl 4 now. Taking it slow.

Robman: Good on ya, things are well for me also quit cigs about 4 years ago now. Nice to be free from that.
Sept 22, 2022 17:21:20 GMT -5
curseofnight: Oof, this game is a lot harder than I remember, haha. Some maps have enemies and/or traps right at the start position. Like on e2m3(I think!? Can't recall map name). Almost walked into the spinning trap at the start! The devs had no honor.

curseofnight: Actually, that was the fourth lvl of the 2nd episode, Monastery. I'm on Sumo Sky Palace now.

Robman: I was most fond of the shareware levels, they were free... I played those the most lol, finally getting the retail cd was a bit anticlimactic.
Sept 24, 2022 10:40:23 GMT -5
curseofnight: I was still wrong. Monastery is the 9th lvl making it the *FIFTH* lvl of the 2nd Ep. I've been adding the map numbers to my save names, but I must've overwritten a save on previous map without updating the number, haha.
Sept 24, 2022 11:00:47 GMT -5
curseofnight: Why was it anticlimactic? Where the retail levels not as good as you were expecting?
Sept 24, 2022 11:02:04 GMT -5
Robman: I just played the crap out of the shareware on TEN for what seemed like a long time, the retail maps just didn't seem to impress me.
