Im trying to build something like this using Vavoom: [url:22fqhm01]http://k53.pbase.com/g4/81/662581/2/61317844.TypicalJapanesehouse.jpg Im trying to build by using 3DFloors, but it does not looks good. I hear something about sector stacks, but i really dont have idea what they are exactly, or what they are used for and how. If Sector Stacks are not for that purpose... Any idea other idea to build that easy? P.D. I'm refering to the house, not the trees <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

AFAIK sector stack is just when one sector is rendered as if it is a continuation of another (one positioned above another). But I don't know how to make one.

Yes, you could use sector stacks combined with 3d floors to build something like that, I've never used sector stacks myself, so I wouldn't know how they are done, but it would be a good test to find out how to do it, heh! <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

Stacked Sctors: [url:1gne269e]http://zdoom.org/wiki/Stacked_sectors I found it on the zDoom Wiki.

In other words, it will be simplier to make lots of 3dfloors and especially 3d slopes above each other, providing littler mess in terms of mapping.

You don't need that many 3d floors, if you build the first half of the building in one sector, then build the second top half in another and you "join" them using stacked sectors to give the feeling of a single building, it might work fine using this method.
