|Welp cerb's pissed at me cause i didnt take the advice he wanted to offer, so I dont have to pretend to take his advice anymore. I'm finishing the inside as we speak, i should be posting some nice little in-games soon. There's some office space inside, as well as possibly the storage garage you can save your cars in, i might move that to the parking garage as a lock-up type thing. dunno yet. There's a waiting area with vending machines and stuff. bathrooms and such. If i move the storage to the roof, then the repair area will be accessable, if not then it would just be fore storage purposes. If anyone has a suggestion for somthing they'd like to see, concerning mission code feel free to suggest. I'll be adding my lifts, as featured in deisel gt's lot, imma clean them up a bit because those were my earlier lifts, and didnt take much time to make.|
Actually I was pissed at the IPL's and, indirectly, at Odie because the game kept crashing. Turned out to be because of an overhaul on one of his properties but I only found out after blocking you. That was the reason for my irritability, anyway.
Barton, we were thinking of having a bombshop on this property too. Would you be able to do that? Or TRN? I can't work out whether TRN knows how to code in SCM or not, he's saying that he wants to make storage garaged but I don't know if he means model and code, or just model.
As for the storage garage itself, do they have to be cuboid with the walls pointing north, south, east, west and vertical? Or can they be set up by using a co-ord for each of the eight corners, which would as long as the walls are straight? Same thing with the bombshop, does it have to be a regular shape?

Either you havn't added a reference in "gta-vc.dat" to the IPL ............
thats exactly what the problem was... my mistake, thanx again Cerbera

There are some commands (opcodes) for angled cubes and areas, so the walls can go in any direction. Angled garages is not a problem.

|Definantly looking foward to V2. Don't forget to add some vertex lighting, the buildings don't have easily recongnisable corners.|
Environmental lighting from the street lights, any floodlight objects I/we place and perhaps some coronastar effects from the IPL could work pretty well? I'm going to be learning about the lighting effects over the next week or two, hopefully.
Whilst banned from the PC I made a couple of (very) rough sketches about possible layouts for the rooms but I'll wait to see where TRN is at with it to see if tidying them up would be worthwhile or not.

Anyhow, TRNL about those corners and pre-lighting... Dunno why I never mentioned this before to ya, but to get good pre-lit corners it works best if you split all the perpendicular faces off before adding the vertex color modifier. Easiest way to do this is to select all the north/south walls' faces and detach them, then do the east/west walls the same, and finally the top and bottom faces. After they're all detached, reattch them all together, but don't weld the vertices. Leaving 90° angles welded together makes Max pretty much treat the normal for that corner as a face at 45°. In other words, it blends the lighting together from each side instead of having a well defined edge.
However the with the rounded building, you can leave all the wall faces welded so it blends smooothly, only detaching the roof, floor, and faces at sharp angles such as inside the door frames.
Oh yea, and while you've still got faces split off into seperate objects, it's a perfect time to go through and re-weld any renegade faces. such as the top of the L-shaped bit of wall just before the ramp going up to that parking deck thingy.

Also, make sure you actually tell the DFF exporter to export the vertex lighting. Drove me insane trying to figure out why none of my models were lit.

|I was talking about scripted garages and parking lots with unlimited cars, but unless it will be for only one lot, it will take up too much space in the mission script (the MAIN part of it) and if you can see more than 5 scripted cars at a time (like, if you're near more than 5 scripted cars at a time), the randomly generated traffic on the streets (controlled by the exe) disappears. This is a VC only thing (gta 3 didn't have it) and I have no idea how to get around it. From what I've heard, it's like this with the original mission script (and the original mission) too. However, I'm sure the opcode 03C5 (create_random_car_for_carpark) can be used to create random parked cars scattered all over the place without any problems. I will test this opcode later.|
From my work on the marina carpark mod for VC, I know that random traffic also dissapears when there are more than 7 "create_car" vehicles present in the game. They don't have to be visible to you ...
Random traffic re-appears when when the cars are removed from the game.
just my $0.02
