how to make simple lakes

Postby fabio_m » 22.07.2010, 19:35

hi all :D

i think i might be usefull here since i helped many other mappers doing this little trick
i hope i can explain in a simple away how to use challenge edit in order to make lakes :)

there it is


[1] Build a giant mountain of dirt with an hole in the middle (usually i use the hole track)

[2] Put the maximum of pipes in that hole (you see it green) and fill all the edges with the same types of pipes over the hills (its in yellow)

[3] Open Challenge edit and also the track, select the pipe designed with the letter "P" (main block)
then click on the [size=10]padlock [/size]and switch the StadiumTube into Stadium Water

[4] Doing that, all StadiumTubeV1 will be changed [size=10]automatically and of course you be sure that all stadium water blocks are at level[/size] Z=1 clicking in Save Block Modifications to memory in everyone of then
Then save the track clincking in the diskette above

[5] and [6] and this is the result, and this is how to make simple and fast lakes :D

IMPORTANT: make sure that the lakes are the last thing you do in the track because if you want to change the terrain with the lake on, the game will crash :(

another thing this is how to do simple lakes but since the water level is not at Z=0 you can ride on the water like in a normal surface

anyway i hope i was helpfull arround there, this is my first tutorial i hope i can help people with it :D
