Goofy Make my school in SWBuild
Hello, I would like to recreate my school on SWBuild. But with the right proportions. The good scale. And I want to know if it is feasible to place a background in the 2D view of SWBuild to trace buildings etc. ... (The map is a picture of the map for the evacuation ^^)

I remember doing a walkthru for our company buildings back in 1997 and I also had a sort of a 2D background by taking a screenshot in build, converting it to a texture and puting on a big backround wall

Otherwise, you can add an option on SWBuild ? (load a background)

lol, think I'm gonna regret going here - outa my league

Lets say your map is called Myschool.map
1. Choose a current wall texture that you want to modify, lets say texture 40.
2. Create your 2D picture etc in PaintShop Pro or whatever you use, make it large, say 512 x 512.
3. Save it as Tile40.png or a .jpg
4. Create a DEF file as follows and save it as Myschool.def

texture 40 { pal 0 { file "Tile40.png" } }

5. Using winzip zip the 2 files (Tile40.png and Myschool.def) to a file called Myschool_hrp.zip
6. In SwpBuild select the wall you want to display this and put texture 40 on it.
NB. In Build it will look like the original but when you play the map your new texture will be visible.
To see the texture in build is possible but requires knowledge on modifying a .ART file.
7. Make sure this Myschool_hrp.zip file is in the same place as your Myschool.map

A level based on your school? That's so 1996...

Thanks, but is not my question =(

For example, I want use :
http://www.maison-15euros.info/sites...son15euros.jpg

And use this picture in the 2D mode in SWBuild. (replacing the grid by the image. Or overlay) :
http://www.gamasutra.com/db_area/ima...4112/build.png

Trust me, if you are still enrolled, anyone in the school administration who catches wind of this, you will be facing a long road of counseling, therapy, and potential expulsion. If you aren't enrolled, then you could even face criminal charges. Hell, I have seen kids get in trouble for doing a Google search for gun shot sounds on the school computers.

More than 10 years ago, you would have had little problems, and had a good laugh. Hey, I even tried to recreate my HS in Duke3d back in '97, but I was a but too impatient with build and couldn't get over the room over room issues.

But then in 99 something terrible happened, you probably know it as the Columbine massacre. nowadays, school administrators would rather err on the side of caution then allow some kids to have a little fun.

If anything, don't call the map "school" and only keep the similarities very vague, just to be safe. And FYI doing real world location environments usually make boring maps.

On school computer doing that stuff, yeah, I agree that it's just bloody stupid and expulsion is a factor. On your OWN laptop and not using the schools wireless, do what you want. You're not doing anything illegal, screw 'em. They also cannot search or demand the laptop over.

Just to recap
School computer: Risk getting your ass kicked. Just don't do it
YOUR computer: Tell them to F off and mind their own business. What you're doing isn't illegal.
