we have the doors and doorframes page, at the moment there are only doorframes, but as with
everything on this site i hope to increase this.
The images here come from 3ds max and show all the types of door frame i have made to date.
|If you look at the image with all the doors you will see that in total there are allot of door frames but only 7 styles, this is better for both mapper and player as it is easy to see the same model throughout a level if it has the same skin on it but if the skin is changed then it blends better, this type of recycling models was used widely during the filming of star wars as props were repainted and placed at specific locations.
I will be making some doors for my levels but at the moment find brushes do the job just fine for now, but i have some designs that would be better if they were made as models for example the doors that closed the hangar for Echo Base on hoth, these doors had many protuberances that would be complicated to make and texture as brushes.
|Some of the larger doors would work better as models also, but at the moment i am using brushes as i build the levels, i tend to "populate" the level after i have worked out any compilation errors and sorted the lighting out.
