View Full Version : qeradiant *.map files
I want to use qeradiant to build my own levels and i so i need to read *.map files.
*.map files are text so supposedly they will be easier to read. But the way they organize geometry (brush) it makes kind confused. I hope someone give me help on this subject ( how to read *.map files) since i want to read directly *.map files and doing my own bsp and vis process and not read from quake *.bsp file. i will appreciate your help.

Here is a link on how to load Worldcraft map files which I'm guesing are similar to q3Radiant .map files.
To be honest I have found it easier to load q3 bsp files. Here is a link on how the q3 bsp file is structured

go to http://nate.scuzzy.net, he wrote a *.map converter. it is easy to understand and has everything you need to create nice levels.

I couldn't find a map reader there...
Well, you have stored planes in the file for each which define a convex hull of the brush. Simply intersect a plane with all others and you will have the polygon lying on that plane (you have to be careful with planes bein coplanar, and planes which don't share edges though).
