Creating my first map?

7 posts in this topic

So, I read up on how to setup Hammer Editor for NMRIH.. some thead here that pointed to other websites. So, I start following a tutorial and it points me to edit a gamecfg.txt file. His location of the file wasn't even correct. So, I found the file and started editing it. Some things didn't seem right, some things seemed already done for me. Has things changed since maybe that tutorial came out?


I have not used that Hammer Editor in a VERY long time and even when I did try it back then I got confused.


I'd be happy to find a tutorial that just shows me how to make a single square room for now, add textures for a wall, and be able to spawn as NMO. From there I can progress.

Well, I don't know why your editing the config. You should be receiving the option to map for NMRiH whenever you start up NMRiH from your steam library. After that creating a simple room in NMRiH is just like creating a simple room in any other source mod. What separates NMO maps from others is the objectives system, which you can see a basic tutorial for pinned on this forum.

I only edited a config file because I was following a tutorial here which linked elsewhere.

I'll read the NMO tutorial.

I'll try to find a tutorial on how to make a room in Hammer.

I'm pretty sure that tutorial is outdated, made obsolete by the October steam release.

It shouldn't be hard to find a tutorial on the basics of mapping, that particular tutorial has been done by many, many people. Look up "How to make a map in Hammer" in youtube and you should find something that can help.

Look in mad dogs topic about mapping for links, also interlopers.net is useful if you're looking for a tutorial on a specific subject

To open hammer, just click "run hammer editor" when the on screen prompt pops up when you run NMRiH. The hammer setup tuts are outdated since the mod is standalone now.
