SLOPES



Slope Editing Method:


select 'axis' of slope, ie. the edge/wall that is to stay the same as the ceiling/floor height in sector properties (must be only the wall of the sector you want to slope, not multi)

select right-click menu- Slope> Floor or Ceiling


left-click on a vertex opposite to the axis wall to change its height (requester will pop up)


repeat for other corner, and repeat for floor/ceiling if thats what you want

if sector or vertex moved then must re-define slope

use right-click menu- 'quit slope' to remove


example:

so, lets say that you have a long thin hallway,
and you want the make the whole thing slope downwards by a total of 2 units:

set the floor/ceiling heights as usual, for example floor=0 ceiling=5

for the floor:
goto select edges mode
select the edge/wall (of this sector only) that is to stay at height = 0
with the pointer still over the selected edge, right-click menu- Slope> Floor
then click one of the opposite vertices (of the edge that you want to lower) and a requester will appear asking 'enter new height', in this case enter, for this example, -2

then repeat for the other corner:
with the pointer over the selected edge, right-click menu- Slope> Floor
then click on the other opposite vertex (of the edge that you want to lower) and a requester will appear asking 'enter new height', in this case enter, for this example, -2
-so thats the floor done...

for the ceiling:
select the (same edge) edge/wall (of this sector only) that is to stay at height = 5
with the pointer still over the selected edge, right-click menu- Slope> Ceiling
then click one of the opposite vertices (of the edge that you want to lower) and a requester will appear asking 'enter new height', in this case enter, for this example, 3

then repeat for the other corner:
with the pointer over the selected edge, right-click menu- Slope> Ceiling
then click on the other opposite vertex (of the edge that you want to lower) and a requester will appear asking 'enter new height', in this case enter, for this example, 3
-and thats it!

remember that if you move this sector or any of the vertices of this sector then you must completely re-do the slope process for any vertex that was moved.
