 06-22-2007, 12:25 PM #1 link2009      Guest Posts: n/a Round Shapes Is there any way to make completely round shapes such as a perfect sphere? PS: Also, what's the easiest way to make a triangle(4-faces) with a square base?

 06-22-2007, 09:06 PM #4 link2009      Guest Posts: n/a So to clarify, there's no geometric shape that can be used as a complete (non-hollow) circle / sphere? Edit: How would you approach this? http://img514.imageshack.us/img514/7099/circleyz3.jpg Last edited by link2009: 06-22-2007 at 09:09 PM.

 06-23-2007, 10:32 AM #9 zyklus      Guest Posts: n/a My pleasure. I'll hopefully release the exe that generates these soon, as soon as I implement a heightmap to sphere feature.
 06-23-2007, 04:44 PM #10 link2009      Guest Posts: n/a Well zyklus, I tried both your Hi-Res and Low-Res Sphere Prefabs and here are the results: Hi-Res: Crashed when I tried to carve with it. Low-Res: Completely disappeared when I carved with it. :/. Am I doing anything wrong? Or is it impossible to carve with Prefabs?

 06-23-2007, 07:05 PM #12 link2009      Guest Posts: n/a Well, bloody hell, your technique worked, but if I can't carve it I'm back to square one! lol. Marinelo, how would you create something like This ? I want to carve a bloody sphere! God. Last edited by link2009: 06-23-2007 at 07:11 PM.
