Hey Im pretty new here but I play on the =(eGO)= 24/7 AVA server a lot. But there is another forum thread that asks if anyone knows how to make maps. Well I do so hopefully i can get a couple of people together and we can brainstorm some Ideas. I would need people that are artistic, experienced, and willing to help out the =(eGO)= clan by making some maps.

I have made a few for regular Half-Life. My best accomplishment was one I made of my friends house. I had the house made perfectly to scale. The only problem was that I could not get the textures to match. This means I would need some help with someone making textures.

I would also need someone who is good at Model creation. I never really got into creating models but it would be really cool. We could make custom skins for the players and even new gun models.

So if anyone is interested with this Idea just PM me or reply to this post. My Xfire ID is thechadmanhl2. I will post a poll on some of the ideas I have and also ones that other people have. Thanks...

Even map: like team fortress means that both sides are exactly the same.

Complety custom map: guns, players, and era means a nearly full modification, lots of work.

Sniper map: all snipers, all the time. This kind of map would consist of high, dark hiding places. like an apartment building courtyard or something...

King of the hill: Pretty self explanitory. axis and allies on the bottom, and a middle flag on the top of a hill.

Scale model map: This means that we want a map to be just like a certain place. Ive made one that was like my school. but there is a lot of research involved and texure matching is hard...

maybe a king of the hill with the buildings in the game in place of the big blocks with the ramps and ladders on cs:s KOTH, and a cool type of tower in the middle, i got ideas, idk how to build maps but lets see what we can do with everyone in this clan :)

yeah we can try both. Map editing is pretty simple actually. It is done through a program caled Hammer Editor. You can find it in your steam file under tools, software development kit(SDK). If we need a model editing program its called Softimage XSI and is really difficult. So i say we create an =(eGO)= exclusive map through DOD.

I would love to help out, yet I have no experiance in this field. I did download the sdk and try to get an understanding of what involves making a map. But, its all a blur.

What programs do you use and what is the process in creating a simple map? I would like to start mapping in the near future. Thanks bud!

John, Caen has been ported to source for a while now. I have played it a few times before the patch came out. Where to find it is the trick. :p

Hey kendle, I use hammer editor through SDK. There are many tutorials online that may be able to help. The thing is you just have to practice at it. good luck!

I wish I could make maps, and I'm sure once I got the hang of it I would be pretty damn good, but I don't really have the time for it :(

I couldn't find the Hammer Editor program. This is the path of where I went....

Local Disk: c, program files, steam, then all of the 3 following: steamapps, steam logs, and steam
I located no tools file and I am wondering if I did something wrong

open steam
go to tools
doubble click Source SDK
doubble click hammer editor

and have fun! so there are a lot of things to learn so go to help and they have a lot of step by step instructions that are a real help.

lol, I like the graves.

Do you know of any video tutorials? I have been poking a little bit more with hammer and the only thing that I have acomplished was making a 1024 X 1024 room with no textures.
