Eye candy for sauerbraten. Meant to show off its engine.

WARNING: 981k wtr very heavy lights and detail.

This is my project to create a tech demo for cube2. Started about 2-3 months ago with many technical issues along the way. Most of which were finding out where sauerbraten saved the map file. Even though sauerbraten loaded the map just fine, I could never find it. Same went for the sound files. Even though I placed them in the sounds folder, sauerbraten moved them to another folder which was difficult to find.

There will be more updates on this. The next hopefuly will be blending the flowers (time consuming because of lights) which Ive asked snowy to do for me because my laptop is lacking a number pad.

Snowy has helped me a good deal with lowering wtr. It was at 1337k wtr which made it extremly difficult to edit. calcing was also made easier after wtr reduction and other modifications. Takes me a good half hour to calc on 2 cores.

There are some light errors in the banisters, for now that is the only way I have found to do the banisters geometricaly so that there is no seams or excesive stretching. However I will do some more experimenting if I have time.

This map introduces some new concepts. One for example is using particles to represent leaves/pedals flowing in the wind. The particles arent doing my idea justice but they are close enough, just use your imagination. Also, what uses alot of wtr is the leaves/pedals on the ground. These are necessary to tie in the theme of the map.

Ive cut corners in non-important areas, like the floor of the water. It hasnt been editing terrain wise And I dont plan on changing that to save wtr.

The islands arent meant to be anything but looks. However I did add a ladder so that the could be accessed.

Why so many lights? well... I tried to take some out, but it just doesnt feel the same. Why add lights in the day time? Its not daytime its sunrise, therefore, the lights have not turned off just yet.

If you have any recomendations please let me know. I will be working on this untill I am 100% satisfied. If you have information on how to show off sauerbratens engine anymore than I already have, please let me know.
