Texture Name Description
Clip_nosight.jpg

clip_nosight it will make a wood sound�if the object you are clipping is made of wood, use this clip.
Clip_nosight_metal.jpg

of clip_nosight_metal it will make a metal sound�if the object you are clipping is made of metal, use this clip.

clip_nosight_dirt This texture will block the player and NPC's. When the player walks on the surface of clip_nosight_dirt it will make a dirt ground sound�if you are clipping an area that would be ground, this texture is

used.
Clip_nosight.jpg
clip_nosight_rock This texture will block the player and NPCs. When the player walks on the surface of clip_nosight_rock it will make a sound as if walking on a rock/stone surface�if you are clipping an area that would be

make of rock, this texture is used.

Water

Texture Name Description
Water.jpg
clip_water This texture is applied on a brush that would be placed in the area of water. Placing water in your level will only display bullet impacts. Filling the water area with a brush with this texture will create the effects

when a grenade is thrown in the body of water and explodes, first the grenade splashing, then the shower of water shooting up from the explosion. If this texture is not used, the grenade will just use the effect of the

ground underneath.
Water.jpg
clip_water_player This texture will create the sound of walking in water when the player walks on the clipped surface. This clip must to be on the same plane of the ground to work properly.
Example: You have a small creek. Make a duplicate of the creek bottom terrain patch. Apply the clip_water_player texture to the terrain and place it directly on top of the terrain you made a copy from.

Editing Textures

Editing Textures are used in the editor for building purposes.

Caulk Textures

Texture Name Description
Caulk.jpg
caulk Applied to faces of a brush that would not be visible to the player. caulk is to be used as your default texture. If you are only texturing one side of a six sided brush, you need to have caulk applied

to the other five faces. This tells the engine to not draw the surface, reducing the polygon count. caulk is also used as a blocker when used for portaling.
Caulk_shadow_3.jpg
caulk_shadow This caulk is used to block light. caulk itself does not cast shadows. Use only if a serious lighting problem exists.
Example: If you have a roof of a building that is caulked to save polygons because the player would not see it, but sunlight enters the interior, then caulk_shadow is applied to block the sun light.

Lighting

Texture Name Description
Light_portal_1.jpg
light_portal This texture is used to block the bounding box of a primary light. The terrain surface with the texture applied needs to be facing inside the area with the affected light.


Example: You have two rooms connected by a doorway. One room has a primary light. The primary light's bounding box is able to continue into the next room because it enters through the

doorway. The result would be that the models in the other room are lit by the primary light. Using a section of terrain you can apply the texture to the terrain and place it in the doorway. It will stop the primary light's

bounding box ensuring only the models in the lit room have the correct lighting.

Lightgrid_sky.jpg
lightgrid_sky Applying this texture to a brush will collect the light grid information. This would be used for lighting the area in the sky that a plane or helicopter would fly. Doesn't always have to be used. Usually when you run

VC_Logging and have the vehicles set to collect the dots, the vehicles do all the work for you automatically. However if the pattern is not aways the same, such as a Multiplayer Helicopter, then you would use this in

the area the helicopter would fly.
Lightgrid_volume_3.jpg
lightgrid_volume This is for VC_Logging your level. In previous versions of Call of Duty, you would have to make a .grid file by manually running through your level collecting the lighting dots. Apply this texture to a brush and

place the brush in an area that the player can access; the compiler will eat up the information for you. You can still do it manually if you wish.
Shadow_1.jpg
shadow This texture applied to a brush will block light.
