    Adding Neon to a warthog

    Programs that you will need
    Entity UE 1.6
    ADI
    DotHalo


    Adding Neon to a Warthog
    Open up your map in Entity.
    For this tutorial I will be using Containment as my map.

    In Entity, go down to the "mode" dropdown
    1.PNG

    Now find effects\objects\vehicles\ghost\ghost_plasma_vent
    2.PNG

    Right-click and hit duplicate
    3.PNG

    Okay, now close out of Entity for now.

    Open up ADI
    File>Open (or Ctrl+O)
    Find your map, and open it.
    Open up the [LIGH] tag
    4.PNG

    Go find effects\objects\vehicles\ghost\ghost_plasma_vent(1)
    5.PNG

    Click on the Meta Editor in the bottom right
    6.PNG

    You can edit the colors to whatever you want, like if you want blue lights change all the red/green values to 0 and blue to 1.
    Don't forget to change both radian values to 0.5 as well.
    Close out of ADI


    Open up your DotHalo (I'm using v1.0b3.0, but it works the same in v1.1)
    Scroll down to the [vehi] tag and find objects\vehicles\warthog\warthog
    7.PNG

    In the Dependencies editor, click the one that says "ligh" at the beginning
    8.PNG

    Now you have to change it to your duped plasma vent. (Its relatively close to the top, and yours should read; "ligh - effects\objects\vehicles\ghost\ghost_plasma_vent(1)"
    9.PNG

    Change it to that and hit Save Changes
    Close out of DotHalo.


    Open up Entity again.
    Open your map, go down to the [mode] tag
    10.PNG

    Find objects\vehicles\warthog\warthog
    11.PNG

    Scroll down until you see something that says "Marker" and change the "0" to a "9"
    12.PNG

    Now change the Y to "0.001747948"
    X to "8E-11"
    and the Z to "-0.3428424"
    13.PNG

    DON'T FORGET TO SAVE!!!

    If your version of Entity is not working, try downloading this one:
    Entity 2.1.24 w/ latest plugins

    And now your warthog has neon!!!
    Have fun with it. :smile:

    Thank you!

    This is my first tutorial as well.

    Also, if 0.5 Radian isn't enough or bright enough you can make it brighter by adding more radian value to it, I set mine to 0.9 but 0.5 works well on darker maps. (like backwash)

    It's alright. But, the entire tutorial could've been done with Entity.

    Your MPShared .map File has to be in the same folder as the map.

    No, as I played my h2 mods on a 360 I never had the chance to take pictures in-game.
