StRaToX posted a topic in General Houdini QuestionsHi I'm new to Houdini and recently I've been getting into DOPs. I have a question I've been trying different things out in dops to see how they work, been playing around with the "Gas Match Field" node and found that it works quite nicely when both fields you are supplying the node with are from the same object Like on picture 1, both the "myField" field and the "heat" field are part of the same object and the node works just fine But what I can't figure out is how to make the node work when I'm supplying it with fields from different objects. On picture 2 "myField" is part of an empty object and the "heat" field is part of the smoke object, I tried to reference them via their paths like on the picture 2 but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work. Does anyone have any insight into why this may be, I can see how referencing field from different objects can come in handy not just for this scenario.
Hi! I don't know how to solve a simple UV problem, I created a basic file where i can recreate my case. I just want to get UV's sticked to the geometry, even if there is a rotation or gets partialy deleted. I tried using Vertex Sop for MAP matching, but no results. Can you help me? Thanks!

Over the course of my graduation project I looked into how a procedural system could be established that would generate a unique deathmatch map that would require as little need of user input as possible. I researched the structural elements of classic deathmatch maps and applied these to construct organic environments. The procedure goes through several steps to establish rooms and paths. Once all rooms and paths have been established a volumetric approach is used to create the mesh. The uv mapping and and polygonal optimization are also completely automized allowing the user to generate a unique map by only pressing a button. Next to having a tool that generates maps without the need for user input, several features for user control were implemented, this does require some knowledge of how Houdini works. The user can manually adjust paths (adding removing etc.) and sculpt additional cover objects. Once exported the map can be imported directly into UDK and be played against bots.
