Assignment Week 5 – Part 1
Using basic brushes you have found that your tools for creating realtime worlds is limited. You will add two tools to your palette this week, the carve tool and vertex editing. Both will allow you to refine your models and add detail in areas. You are to make adjustments to your level and turn in a new .vmf file at the next class session.

Your level refinements should be iterative and refine the current level you are working on. Develop finer areas of your current level keeping mind the same concepts as last week:

  • scale
  • ambiance
  • spatial relationships
  • transition
  • threshold
  • You will also add a single interaction to your world. This interaction can be a button or environmental trigger.
