You have to make a texture with words on it or use decals.

For a nice bulging effect, u need to make 3d letters. I've seen 'em before. It looks cool! But, to make textures, just use Wally.

DON'T make 3d letters out of blocks.

You can only have a few before it causes a serious performance problem.

You shuold make a model instead. Look for a program called MilkShape 3d or if you have it, 3d Studio works too.


Google for some tuts on making Half-Life .mdl models.

Also:

Why do you think that your pic is not blocks? It looks like blocks to me.

Couldn't you have all blocks by using vertex manipulation to cut down polys and either pulling it away from the wall by 1 unit or changing the entire message to a Func_wall?

Not blocks, eh?

Well I'm afraid you're wrong. There isn't anything else that shows up like that in Hammer.

Case closed.

Post the map please.

A func_group is a Quake-style entity.

I think dixi91 misunderstands the two types of entities.

1. Point Entities
Things like light and info_player_start are point entities. They contain no blocks. You create these with the light bulb tool.

2. Block Entities
Things like func_ladder and func_door are block entities. They DO contain blocks. You create these by building blocks, selecting them and pressing Ctrl+T (Tie to entity). This groups the blocks into an entity.

A func_group is basically the Quake version of HL's func_wall. I think. If you select it and press Ctrl+W (Move to world) it will release the blocks from the entity (func_group) and they will become ungrouped, normal blocks.

make letters from blocks then use the carve tool to make holes in walls with words in like a giant woot on the wall now that would be cool
