This topic doesn't fit in Tutorials since it has downloadable content and would be useless in Misc. forums because people don't do maps there.. So here I go :

Bored of never being able to get good results when prelighting ? Maybe you never been able to complete one because there's too much parameters to setup ?

This sample scene will simplify all the 3Dsmax mappers tasks.

How to prelight your map in two three clicks :


- Merge your map in my lighting scene.
- Go to the 'Advanced Lighting/Radiosity' window and click 'Reset' then 'Start'. Wait till process is complete.
- Assign vertex colors to the map using the solution.
- Export. Done.

Download link (All 3DSMax Versions from 8.0, settings may change) :
Download | 2Mb

Download link (3DSMax 2009) :
Download | 2Mb

For the experienced modders :
-this setup includes light and color bounces like a mental ray G.I. would do.
-you can add other light sources as well as delete the daylight system


Edit (Apr 10 2009): Fixed link.
Edit (Apr 11 2009): Added to GTAGarage, Added previous versions scene, but kept the original one as a matter of compatibility.

Wowa, thanks! This will actually help me, since my buildings all looked too bland and ugly compared to the ones from Rockstar.

Awesome! I can do advanced prelighting although this is much easier to do. It takes a lot of work to prelight every single model if you're putting map-stuff ingame, especially when it's a TC. This is great for TC's! People like me who work with SketchUp need to prelight their models in 3dsMax and if I'm placing 10, 20, 30 or more models ingame this saves a lot of work biggrin.gif . Great work, again. Gonna test it soon.

Nice thing to share Parox, but the download link is kinda refering me back to the filedropper site and not to the actual download.

Simple as hell :

- Click the link here, enter the request code to download and that's it. It's basically even easier and faster than Rapidshare and other timed downloads.

If I asked for more ppl to ask me it's because I currently have only max 2k9 and 2k8 installed here. I'll do it in 3Dsmax 8 tomorow so that Everybody will be able to use it biggrin.gif


Edit: sorry guyz just saw my filedropper account ha sbeen reset. No idea why. I'm gonna slap them hard since i'm on a premium there. sarcasm.gif Let me 20min to re-upload the 2k9 scene and tomorow for previous versions wink.gif

Mod currently added to Gtagarage, linked to topic. Now i'm gonna do the previous versions. turn.gif

Edit : Added the same scene using previous 3DSMax versions. Versions before 8.0 are ignored here and I doubt anyone is using max 3,4,5,6,7 today. turn.gif .
