Hi, I've recently started to learn to use the map making tool Trenchbroom to create some quake 2 jumpmode maps. I don't seem to be able to find a way to add ladders and ice to a map. Does anyone have any idea how I could do it or if not who might know? Just to clarify, I'm using the Q2 addon.
Hey kropp! It's great to see you starting to learn mapping, and you've made the right choice with Trenchbroom. I recommend using TrenchBroom V2 which has full Quake 2 support, since Trenchbroom 1.0 doesn't support surface flags needed for ladders/ice. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and he'll send you a link to his latest version.
Trenchbroom V1.0 is the Quake 1 version. The Q2 Addon has been made before V2.0 and lets you add q2 entities and textures, but not surfaces needed for ladders. Those you could add manually but since it requires editing the map file in a text editor it's not recommended unless you know what you're doing. In the past I'd cut and paste those flags from another editor like Qoole or Quark.
On the other hand Trenchbroom V2.0 has full native Quake 2 support including surface flags. It's interface has been reworked and it's the version ideal for what you need.
