I wanna talk to the map designer!

12 posts in this topic

So I learned a whole bunch about mapping, I got really into it because I was inspired by the map _chinatown

anyways, It would be nice to see little video's maybe 3-5mins long explaining some neat little tricks or theme/ideas to help map

for NMRiH

currently I'm only mapping for this mod, learned about visleafs/func_detail and some other stuff but it would be really nice

like I said to add little videos explaining how you do your thing!

Like applying barricades/zombie spawn/area portals etc

SINCERELY

hi, please use the search function

no offense...but that didn't help at all, you telling people to use the search function and not actually replying to the main post is stressful.

At least give some tips or links or link me to an already made thread?

Thanks.

My main point is I want to discuss mapping with the map designer or some people that are map designing atm

Welcome to the forum. If you're looking for general NMRiH mapping info this is a good thread: http://www.nomoreroominhell.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=6519

Sotapoika designed Chinatown and I believe nay0r helped make it some as well. Them two are pretty busy but whenever they get a chance they might be able to answer some questions. They aren't the only mappers though so I'm sure someone else on the team or in the community can contribute to the discussion.

Thanks for replying! Unfortunately I already went through all the basics and I'm creating more advanced things, lot of tips and a good community, my only wish now is to be in a ventrilo room with some mappers, but the community vent server seems a lil bit messy (room names wise)

All you have to do is go into the 'mapping' forum section and read stuff with your eyes :P

Hello fellow new mapper, I too am in the learning process of mapping. I learned a great deal by grabbing and analyzing the example maps floating around here. maddogs mapping thread has two on the front page and if I remember correctly gregster has one aswell. One thing I can't stress enough is to take lots of time mapping and draw out maps before starting a build. Another good tip I find is to upload screenshots of your WIP regularily so as the community can tell you if your going in the right direction or building on an unstable foundation. mapping is a lot of fun when the ball gets rolling but it's all motivation. I myself have lost alot of motivation due to failed projects but even a doomed map is good for the learning experience. give a search for dead_chapel if your interested, I tracked my building progress there. It may not be the best example but it shows what a total noob can accomplish in a short amount of time. I hope you stick with it, nothing beats seeing your map being played on the server list ;)

Only issue is that the younger audience might not have the respect for the work of others and directly copy it. That being said, opening a well done and complete map from HL2 opened quite a few doors for me at the start.
