How to use
Becasue mappers/MOD'ers for non-quake 3 games are using these assets the files are just included as a ZIP file with relative file paths. To use them in Quake 3 engined games (RtCW, MoH, CoD) simply rename the file from .zip to .pk3.
Changing the texture used on the model/s
The files are ASE models, (which is a text based format) so the texture/shader path can easily be edited using notepad you don't need to use any 3D software, just open a file into notepad, find the texture path references & edit those to 'point' to your folders / textures / shaders, re-save to a location of your choice and then load ready textured into Radiant.
If you want to use 'auto clipping' on the models instead of applying manual Playerclipping in Radiant you'll need to ammend the included shader or write your own; see below for an example of a 'basic' shader.
warning : be warned that if you use auto clipping extensively you'll be generating a colossal amount of extra brush faces that count towards the total brushcount limit in Q3 engined games... watch out for max_map_ errors.
//barge with no markings
// q3map_shadeangle 79 //OPTIONAL*
// q3map_clipmodel //OPTIONAL
blendFunc GL_DST_COLOR GL_ZERO
*note : using q3map_shadeangle on models that have specific smoothing groups can have some undesirable effects, esp on more 'organically' shaped objects, so this is commented out by default for this shader. If you want to make your own specific texture for the game or theme you have, contact KatsBits with your request and we'll dig out the texture template you can use to create your own artwork with.
