Warpzones - Articles

Hi everyone!

Back and motivated to map with UED2.1! I am going to have to fix some warpzone issues soon in a particular level I am working.

The warpzones work, but there are some lingering visual issues, noticeable if one pays attention (one can see the cuts due to the edges of the portal in the corridor, but only from one direction).

I am looking for a good article about this topic, below is an old post by Hellkeeper, unfortunately the link to the article doesn't work now:

Hellkeeper wrote on Oct 9th, 2012 at 4:58pm:
Making warpzones is very easy : create two alcoves, and seal each one with a portal. Behind each portal, put a WarpZoneInfo, and in their properties, match their ThisTag and OtherSideURL fields. If you get a HOM, try rotating one of your portals. I strongly recommend you read this guy's articles about warpzones because they will either mess your mind or give you great ideas.


Anybody got some idea of what that article might be (hope Hellkeeper sees this!)?
Any other resource is welcome.

Thanks in advance for any help, even just commenting on your experience with warpzones could be helpful!

A quick trip to the ol' Wayback Machine proved helpful Wink

I have a vague feeling I've seen this same tutorial before somewhere else...

The article is actually still online, the website has moved.

A screenshot of your specific portal problem might be useful too, we might see a solution.

EDIT: as for commenting with my own experience: warpzones work flawlessly, the issues people have are usually due to them not fully understanding how they work or their limitations, which are very peculiar.
  

You must construct additional pylons.

Thank you SteadZ and Hellkeeper!

The article seems to be very thorough and basically essential reading so I'll hop right to it.

@Hellkeeper: a bit later I will share a screenshot if the problem persists!

cheers!
