Topic: Mirrored Surface Problem

There's a weird problem with mirrored surfaces on my levels. The mirrored surfaces reflect the textures underneath the brush. The really weird part is that it only happens in my levels only.


Does anyone know how to solve this? Also, has anyone had that problem playing my levels?

Re: Mirrored Surface Problem

Mirrors only work at zero level (surface must be at Z = 0) and they must be planar to the XY plane.

Here's a somewhat outdated mapping guide that has a list of things to be aware of: https://icculus.org/neverball/mapping/

Sorry, would have commented on it earlier, but haven't had a chance to sit down to thoroughly play through your levels.

Just another question, where do I go to find that out?

Re: Mirrored Surface Problem

Just switch the 2D view to the ZX plane and look at the rulers. Align the top of the mirror floor with 0 and you're all set.

That level looks sick, BTW. Have you released it yet?

Re: Mirrored Surface Problem

I believe a dedicated ball "folder" can be made out of this rainbow ball.

I used to have a few basic ball variants myself... I wonder if they still work.

Re: Mirrored Surface Problem

Levels with confusing moving platforms (Reshaun Suite 16, Tones 4, Tour de Force 3 & 17, etc) would be much easier with a solid color ball. This way you do not get confused by the ball's rotation not matching its velocity.

The only other unfinished level, V, will come after I do all the others. I have a reason for this.
