Hi Guys,

Here's a new map based uppon Hill 252.2 leading to Prokhorovka. It is here where the 5th Guards and LAH tried to capture the key junction on the hill.

I changed the title since I'm focussing on the area around Prokhorovka; Clash of Titans: Chapter Prokhorovka July 1943

Well actually the vehicle shadow isn't alligned yet because there is not a tool for it currently and matrix games isn't responding but rather avoiding the question.

But yes I created the shadow with blender from a 3D object. Most objects you see are 3D rendered such as trees, bushes and telephone poles.

Was there a question I missed? I did respond to your PM on this. We do not have or plan to make an additional tool for helping with shadow alignment. You set it by adjusting the offset values in the data text file that you need to have to pack the shadow images.

Indeed you answered, but this reply sounds a bit more like an answer.

You mention the offset values, could you be a bit more specific? what kind of data text file which values etc.

The answers I get are not helpfull but rather avoiding. I have my respect for you and try my best to be humble in my approach but I'm just dissappointed, but maybe you are just a very busy guy.

All I'm trying to do is give my share to the community and making this a better place. Please enjoy the stuff that is being created out here we are also showing it to you


Kind regards,
Conrad

Why not create your new vehicle and shadow in 16bits?..your vehicle and shadow work in PITF and also you can use CCVehSDEdit a GREAT MAFI Tool for align the turret and shadow;)

A Simply solution;)

Sorry, I was thinking about the tanks.azp file data. For Shadows.azp the 'hotspot' is kept in the file name you use for your shadow.

So if you name your shadow image file "T34.spr.000.12.14.tga" the shadow will align with the vehicle hotspot by putting the pixel at 12,14 in the shadow image at the same location as the hotspot for the vehicle hull (or turret, if it's a turret shadow.)

One thing that CCMunger does that may make life easier on you -- it will automatically crop your images to remove any completely transparent pixels excess around the edges of your images (any row or column of pixels that all have an alpha value of 0).

So if you create vehicle hull, turret, and shadow images that are the same size and all centered in the same place, you can use the same x and y hotspot values for all these components. Of course to do this the images will all be larger than they really need to be, but that's fine as long as you just use transparent background pixels. CCMunger will crop out them down and adjust coordinates as needed when you pack the tanks / shadows files.

Steve, doesn't work, or I'm missing something.
