Multi Path Sectors
BME
2.60 The 1st Path Sector has a DATA value of 1, it's Path Markers go from 1 to 4.
The 2nd Path Sector has a DATA value of 11, it's Path Markers go from 11 to 14.
The BusyTime of each Path Marker determines the Speed of the Path sector.
The WaveForm setting of the Path Sector determines the way in which it moves.
The WaitTime of each Path Marker determines how long it takes a pause.

 

 

Triggers
BME
3.49 Demonstrates different triggers for Sprite, Wall and Sector.

PUSH works with all 3 (for sector: anywhere while inside)
WALLPUSH works anywhere within the sector (not just walls)
VECTOR only seems to work with sprites.
TOUCH works best with a 'wall sprite'.
PROXIMITY works with sprite types that will exploded or disappear.
PICKUP works with weapons, ammo, and items.

Have fun!

 

 

Mapedit - Tutorium v5-3-2015
BME
13.9 Demonstrates all working/useful Xsprite Types from 400 and up.
This is an update of the previous Tutorium map.

A few things are fixed, a few things have been added, each effect room has now a description text and there's also a teleporter for fast traveling from one end of the hallway to the other.

 

 

Particle snow test map
Tekedon
7.34 This is a small test map for the \\\"particle snow\\\" effect (plus a few fun additions). Framerate drop is significantly lower than with the regular snow sprites. This effect works through hidden gib objects in the ceiling that are triggered over and over. The effect is not perfect but it can get the job done if used correctly.

Since the snowflakes are made through triggering gib objects it can be set to turn off (stop snowing) with a smooth transition through entering a specific sector for example. Or a button. Whatever you want. There is a button in this map that will stop the snow from falling.

 

 

Secrets Setup
BME/ILMHB
3.92 How to set up the secrets counter, Normal and Super.

 

 

Working Dart Generator
Nemo
6.78 An idea I'd been toying with for a while: a fully functional substitute for Blood's totally NON-functional DARTGEN sprite. Admittedly, it's not perfect, but it does the job reasonably well.

The entire mechanism, including triggering, is contained within the single, central SLIDE MARKED sector, making it easy to copy and paste into any map. The widening in the middle of the sector is simply to guarantee triggering -- not an issue in this particular example, but observed to be a problem in another I worked on.

Actual damage is induced via the twin, invisible saw blades built into the mechanism (setting SECTOR damage produced a far less desirable result), and the TWO saws are definitely needed. Thus, the "darts" are deliberately set at low and medium heights to suggest JUMPING, rather than crouching (which WON'T work), as the way to avoid possible injury.

Adjust as desired. But note: saw blade HEIGHT should be left quite low to produce the most "realistic" effect.

 

 

3D "quakish" elevator
Tekedon
1.62 A 3D elevator that you cannot fall through even if you try.

 

 

Jump Pad
BME/ILMHB
1.56 Similar what is found in ocpjr's maps except the pad doesn't raise when triggered.

 

 

Neverending explosions
Jerry
2.10 (Retriggering Hidden Exploders) Example map.

 

 

Bloody Drums (BR-03)
BME/ILMHB
10.5 Have you ever wondered what Caleb likes to do in his spare time? ;)

Some advice: do not stand too close to the buttons, just stay where you are when the map starts and everything works just fine :)

- Use [CLR] button to clear row
- Use [INV] button to invert pattern

MAPEDIT FAQ v. 1.0
June 20th, 1997

Jay Chapman
12 This FAQ was originally started based on the demand for a FAQ that would help people create MAPs for Blood using MAPEDIT. I saw a lot of questions. A lot I could answer so I decided to start a FAQ. I will show you how to do many things, from creating a sector, to blowing up walls and Gib effects.

CONVEYOR BELTS

1 1. In 2D mode, make a basic room. In 3D mode, adjust the ceiling
height and texture to your liking.

2. In 2D mode, create a rectangle somewhere in the room. Go into 3D mode and raise or lower it as desired. Give it a texture of your choice. Water, etc. This will become your conveyor belt.

3. Place your cursor on the conveyor belt sector in 2D mode. Enter the following input:

Ambient & Sector Sfx: The Big List
Updated 6/25/97
Ronald Allen
18 A sound is a sound. Make it an Ambient Sfx (#710) and it repeats over and over. Make it a Sector Sfx (#709)and it plays up to 4 sounds in a row one sound at a time. Any sound can be used either way which means there are thousands of unexplored possibilities for creating new effects.

Tired of making doors that sound like doors. Ok, make them talk when they open. The haunted wind a little boring, why not a menacing voice in the background that repeats over and over...
