How do I 'Optimize' my Map?

So you want it to load faster , compile faster, and give you better fps?

Use the null texture on any surface that will not be visible by the player [it will cause the engine to bypass rendering of that object from the side that you nulled]. The null texture can be found in your zhlt.wad [it came and is in the same folder as the zhlt compile tools] Get ZHLT Compile Tools

It's the BLUE texture there

There's no need to null external surfaces. The compilers discard these anyways as long as there's no leaks.


Use your skybox correctly:





Then what is the whole point of the null texture?


EDIT :: Can an Admin change the truck title and capitalize the T in things its really putting me off.

Ok, idiots...

Let's say you have a fence you can not get to the other side of. Put the null tex on the back of the fence. This face is INSIDE the map but you should never see it.

Even better, put null on the EDGES of the fence. You should never see those either, there's more of them, and your viewing angle is likely to point right at them. That's about -2 wpoly any time the fence is on screen.

This is all just one example.
