Well, not all virusses affect Windows 95 anymore... tongue.gif

That means the navy doesn't need to worry about such troubles in case of emergency... That's their excuse, no doubt. They're just cheapskates... wink1.gif tongue.gif

Anyhow, Raven, I added some more mappers, including you. Some may not be that active anymore, but they have been and that does not scrap them from the list, though. wink1.gif

Time to clean some spam, me thinks.

Okay, 'lil kids, we've all had these debates a thousand times, let's not start it again, I don't want to have to lock this topic... :wink1:

And quit the overreacting, people. It makes browsing this forum much easier rolleyes.gif


Just to let you know (if it makes you all feel better), I don't like it either, but my opinion on this matter is firm, I'm not buying TW unless they fix several (all actually, but that isn't going to happen) of the obvious problems.

But on a more serious note, no more spamming or I'll be suggesting warnings. Tore, ShDwBoRn and Orca? :sleep:

You should know that many people don't know they're actually following rules made up by the church, which I don't trust at all. For example, I don't see what is wrong with homosexuals doing their stuff (as long as I'm not involved it's fine with me), even from a biblicial point of view. I searched for some scriptures, but really couldn't find any in the new testament. The old testament heavily condemns it, however, the old testament was written before the new one (Reeeealy? You didn't know that, did you, eh? wink1.gif ) , so I doubt wether the things written in the old testament are all God's ideas (no sex during the menstruation perioid, hahaha, riiight... tongue.gif ). Which is why I only actually properly follow the new testament, directly inspired/written by Jesus' disciples.

And no, I'm not cheating on religion wink1.gif

Which is why you should interpret them in whatever way you want. At least, the ones that do not really work in our current society. People shouldn't see christians as idiots with a narrow, dogmatic point of view tongue.gif , because we're not wink1.gif

Yes, some true points, however, I'm a christian, I don't go to church, but that has multiple reasons, including very, very bad experiences from me and my family, for example, when my grandma only had a few months to live because of breast cancer, the pastor called us to ask wether my father could act as an interpreter for some French people (my dad's French, ya see). My mother replied by telling him about her mother and that this'd probably be her last christmas (it was almost christmas) so we'd visit the hospital. All he said was: 'Oh damn, where do I find another interpreter now?' sneaky2.gif .

And my opinion about sex isn't affected by my belief, I won't have intercourse with random people, it must be somebody I really love etc. etc. ,but having a baby will come later. Being ready depends on the couple, 'jibber-jabber' couples (like you said) obviously aren't ready and I wouldn't ever want to have such a bland relationship, just because I want security, not minding every word because I'll have to miss sex for two days, that's not it. Same goes for pleasure, the 'jibber-jabber' couples do really love each other, but their relationship is not too strong. Back when they were hugging and stuff, they truley loved each other. If all people want is sex, they'd all jump out of the window with a big wad of cash and condoms in their pockets, heading for the brothels en-masse (Hahahaha tongue.gif )...

Back to Christianity, I interpret those scriptures it in a different way, if marriage isn't a proper line between ready and not ready anymore, then what is? I'll decide for it myself.

Abstainance-till-marriage? Bullcrap! Heck, I'm a Christian myself but that doesn't mean I won't have sex before marriage... sneaky2.gif

Sorry God, just don't feel like following that tiny rule. As long as you love your GF, I think it's perfectly fine. besides, people don't take marriage seriously at all these days! Divorces everywhere... Same goes for condoms, why the heck does it matter wether the sperm dies in your testicles or in the rubbery protection? :wacko: I honestly can't see myself burning (or whatever the heck is down there in the fiery hole thingy) in hell for that. God: "Noes! You wasted 10^10 sperm cells in your life that would've died anyhow! Now you shall burn! *Dumm-dumm-dumm-dummmmm* "

QUOTE ("El D34dlyto")
Holy sh*t. That's very...unrealistic situation. I mean, these days, who doesn't know nearly everything about sex since like 16 at worst case scenario?


No it's not, I'm afraid. Quite a lot of people still think you can get pregnant from a blowjob and similar stuff (like our little fishy friends can survive stomach acid, hahaha, and then somehow end up in the uterus pinch.gif ). Yes, it's crazy.

But to return to you, Black, if they're both virgins, the chance of them having STD's apart from herpes is pretty small, right? Especially when they're using condoms. And why should two young people that love each other refrain from a sexual relationship if they're both ready? Besides, it's a joke, not a debate, geez.

Not because we have opposite points of view, but I think it's a good idea to split this topic in case anybody wants to continue this debate.

This is one of the buggy methods to get such things to work. However, I do not advise using it at all, potential crashes are bad features, especially for a mod with new maps. ermm.gif

And this has something to do with the way TS handles this, not the ini files of FinalSun. Sorry, this can't be fixed without C&CVK and ETS.

I believe that happens because you haven;t set addon to 1. Go to Basic settings under Edit and set 'Addon required' to 1, It's in the lower-right corner of the 'Basic' window, in case you can't find it. smile.gif

This should also be moved to map discussion, it's no big deal, but next time put the topic where it belongs.

Soldat. Definately.

It's a great game and it's relatively addicting. You don't need an awesome PC to run it either, just mediocre internet.

Author: Me!

This tutorial is rated 2 (**) stars, not because it isn't easy, but because it requires some time to get used to and not everybody thinks it's that easy.

Lightposts, this is just something I'd like to bring to public attention: lighting. Lots of maps these days feature custom lighting, which is great. In the old days, most mappers made online maps without lighting or amateur maps and the maker tried to use the lighting... But it didn't work out that well... The only problem is that few people actually know what to do with it, even now. TS maps can be disco fever à la 2007, or they can have a nice atmosphere to them, loyal to the FMV's. this is why I always advise people to edit lightposts in maps. Well, many people already know this, yes I'm posting the obvious, but that's the case with many other tutorials.

Lightposts have several attributes:

LightRedTint= 0.001 - 0.45 ; the amount of red lighting the lightpost should emit
LightBlueTint= 0.001 - 0.65 ; the amount of blue lighting the lightpost should emit
LightGreenTint= 0.001 - 0.55 ; the amount of green lighting the lightpost should emit
LightIntensity= 0.005 - 0.025 ; the brightness of the light
LightVisibility= 500 - 7500 ; the radius in which the light should be emitted

Explanation and general information about the tags:

- If both the red and blue tint tags read 0.001 or something low like that, and the green tint is something like 0.45, the lightpost emits green light. if Both blue and red read 0.10 and green reads 0.001, then the lightpost emits a faint purple light. Just to make this idiot-proof.

- I advise you to keep your values in the range I noted. Then again, these are guidelines and a little bit more may be required sometimes.

- Keep the visibility high, but the intensity low. This is to prevent separate cell colouring. This means that if you give it a very strong light effect, but only a small radius, the light looks blocky over the tiles and we don't want this.

Some separate tips:

- Always place at least some small (weak?) invisible lighting sources around tiberium spawners, but not fields without a blossom tree or blue tiberium spawning crystal close by (no matter how big they are). What if a player harvests it all? No more tiberium but loads of lighting. And no, that is not residual radiation, that's merely a false excuse.

- Tiberium mold (the green and blue goo) and algae (swampy stuff on water) are all persistant and will remain on the map forever. Adjust your lighting when placing them down. It counts as tiberium.

- Fona is destroyable, so if you have fona without persistant stuff (tiberium spawning tree or crystal or mold), then don't place down any lightposts.

- Around green tiberium mold ( goo/sludge ) place down an invisible lightpost, no colors, not even yellow, just 'au naturel' wink1.gif , it's green enough.

-Around blue tiberium mold, place down an invisible blue lightpost and an 'au naturel' one.

-During an ion storm, all colored lighting reverts to colorless lighting, this is what makes tiberium fields light up when the weather anomaly is raging. The overall ion storm ambient lighting settings determine the tint of the lighting on the entire map, so be sure to treat that normally as well.

- Negative light posts should never be placed in tiberium rich areas, because tiberium always emits a slight bit of light. The light can only become more intense, it will not lessen.

- Keep everything normal. In cities there will never be giant colored lightposts, this is not Las vegas x 1000.

- This is TS, look at the FMV's for clues about nice atmospheres, or invent your own. Just keep this in mind: nothing should be extreme, too much of something good is always baaaaad.

- Always edit lightposts, the vanilla settings for the lighting are ridiculous and just like we're back in the 80's. The only lightpost that is slightly okay is the normal invisible and visible light post (colorless lighting)

- Never ever look at Westwood's standard maps for lighting advice, most of WW's maps were made with a RMG (random map generator) of which we can still find a downgraded version in TS nowadays. Their maps were also horrible when it came to atmosphere.

- Water itself doesn't emit light, it merely reflects some of it, so you can place down colored lightposts that slightly edit the atmosphere around it, but never make it emit light (unless there are some algae colonies). I'd also avoid yellow lighting over water. Blue is okay, though and actually advised. However, if the general color of your map's ambient lighting (in non-ionstorm mode) is nothing like blue, or forms an uneasy and unwanted contrast when you have blue lighting on your map, don't place down anything on the water. Negative lightposts are okay on water, just know that water does not absorb all lighting.


Hope this helped the new mappers a bit. smile.gif
