Learning The SW Build Editor
Steffen Itterheim
166 Detailed FAQ from 1997. Apparently this was suppose to be included on the SW CD, but never was.



Making the Gong
1.09 The gong is a pretty cool effect to have in your map. It just looks like a decoration, until you shoot or hit it, then it makes a loud "GONG" sound. It's pretty easy to make, but you have to have the TAGs exactly right...

Vehicle "how to"
Yves Bresson
7.25 1.draw your vehicle. In this example the vehicle's
walls are in YELLOW so you can see them more clearly.
The vehicle's top is north (up) on the picture.
Your vehicle CAN NOT use more than 30 sectors.

2.draw a box around your vehicle, this box must link to
NO OTHER WALLS. This "outer box" is in DARK RED on the
picture and is pointed by a GREEN arrow.

Make a Drivable Tank
Cougan Collins
17 Ok this is what I have for you on making a tank. The drawing below is just a simple diagram on how to make a basic tank. You of course will want to add more lines to give your tank a better look than just a box shape. All the numbers are explained below this diagram. You have to know a little bit about build in order to understand this.
Room Over Room Template Map
13 This is only a template for those who cannot or do not
know how to create the sector over sector effect correctly.
I used five rooms connected by elaborate hallways and in
each room uses a different use of the room over room
Room A A: Normal Transparent Water Effect
Room A B: Sector Over Sector with sectors on the top
    floor which you can see from the bottom floor.
Room A C: Normal Sector Over Sector Effect with two holes.
Room A D: Transparent Water with a box on the top floor.
    (Notice how the box disappears when moving away
    from the sector you dived into the water? You
    can ONLY see stuff on top from bottom in the
    sector with the floor mirror texture. So create
    you sectors accordingly)
Room A E: Sector Over Sector connecting to a distant
    area also more sectors on top floor with End-
    -Button. (You cannot see the other floor mirror
    texture when in the opposite floor mirror
    texture sector. So make them a fair distance

Ambience Help Map
Charlie Wiederhold
56 This is simply a rather handy little map so you
can hear the ambience effects in Shadow Warrior.
I put in all numbers 0-82, even though there are
many that don't match up to any sound at all.
Some sounds (thunder, etc) happen to carry over
through almost the entire map, so don't be thrown
off if you hear the thunder ambience in the
background of the other ambience areas. Also,
some of them may be loud enough to carry to the
room next to them, so listen carefully. However,
for the most part it is easy to use, and very
very handy when trying to pick exactly what sounds
you want in your map. We use it hear at Sunstorm
Interactive, and hope you can put it to use too.
