name - Miscellaneous Rock 'scatter'
pk3 file - ase-kt_misc_rocks.pk3
info - A separate zip file of the misc. rocks used in kat1024. Low poly count means models can be 'spammed' over a level without too much of a performance hit in game. Also available separately (opposite) is the *.blend Blender source file.
How to use
Rename the zip file to PK3 and drop into you 'base' folder, or, simply extract the contents to your project folder/location - file paths may need to be edited accordingly (see below).
The model files are in the *.ase format so editing texture paths is simply a matter of opening the files into NotePad or similar text editor and amending the following file path references.
If assets are pulling a texture from the 'textures' directory that path needs to be something similar to the following...
and similarly if pulling assets from the models folder...
A generic 'rock' texture is provided that should work from the box but it is recommended that it be replaced with something appropriate to the surrounds of the models so they blend in better. A typical shader for ase models is as follows...
// q3map_shadeAngle 179 //* see note below
// surfaceparm gravelsteps // optional
blendFunc GL_DST_COLOR GL_ZERO
// tcMod scale 0.7 0.7 //optional scales a texture so it repeats X times (smaller or larger than default texture size)
*note : using q3map_shadeangle on models that have specific smoothing groups can have some undesirable results, esp on more 'organically' shaped objects so this is commented out by default for this shader which was applied to the rock models shown below.
