Half life 2
Deathmatch for some time I decided to see if I could make a custom map
At first this was only as a test, to see if I could pull it off, but soon It
got way more serious.
I picked a "easy" multiplayer map called
from a older multiplayer game to rebuild in
This older game (2001) is called
Aliens versus Predator 2, some of you might still remember that one.
The original map was build with the level editor
DEdit, that I
also used to make maps back then.
I was lucky enough they included the leadworks map for reference in the
DEdit sample maps.
The first thing I discovered was that
the original map was 1/3 scale to big compared to the hammer grid.
This resulted into needing to re-calculating the dimensions of, well
This, I discovered while being half way the map so I was kind of back to 0.
Luckily enough the hammer editor is very popular and there a plenty online
tutorials available these days.
A big name in this area is a guy named "3kliksphilip" with a whole
list of tutorials on his forum.
Another guy who helped me alot with optimizing the map is a guy named Zeph,
thx for your time in this one.
Last but not least i'd like to thank my good ol bud Shockwolf for running my
map on his server for testing, thx!
