To my Mylevel or not to mylevel, that's the question

Post by Alucard »

Do you know this problem? Maps coming with hundreds of texture packs of which only ONE texture is used? Does it bother you people are still acting like motards and send huge 20 megabyte texture packs along for one bloody texture?

Don't become one of those people Use MYLEVEL.
Really it is simple. Nearly any file, music, texture, monster can be mylevelled.

Mylevel objects are loaded into the level so the map no longer requires the external package, this way the level only saves the files that are actually USED.

To use the Mylevel package simply look for the package name. For instance let's say we want to mylevel Sky.utx

1# Click the white text input line below your 3D window

2# Type "Obj load file=Sky.utx package=MyLevel" without the quotes (This is case-sensitive)

3# The pack can now be found in the texture browser under the name "MyLevel"

It's that easy!
A fair warning, Next one of you I see sending a 200 meg file along for ONE bloody texture I rip out your hearts and feast on your blood.

Happy mapping ;)

ROFL

Just yesterday I previewed a map for someone. He sent me the map, I tried to open it, "Failed to launch, package blah missing" so he sent it to me. Repeat three more times.

Why don't people use mylevel? If you map, learn the package structure and use only the stuff you need. It helps everyone when you take the time to optimize your map package.
