Post tutorial Report content RSS feed CS:S Map making video tutorial

In this video tutorial, I will walk you through creating a map for CS:S - step by step.

Posted by on - Basic Mapping/Technical

This is an audio video mapping tutorial movie on how to make a basic counter-strike source map. It will cover all the basics, I will do another short tutorial later, on advance stuff, like water, displacements, rolling truck and more... Sorry it had to be 30 mins but its better than reading tutorials, once you watch this you'l get a sense of feel on how Hammer works, and you will be set up for life on how to map :) For More Videos in my website: www.LearnToMap.tk enjoy!

Try hosting a server instead. I had that problem too and it seems to work if you create server > select map from list, and then run it like that. good luck

BD Black Death, you will have to reset game configurations.

i didnt see your other reply, you did figure out how to get game config back...but the problems you might be experiencing are either a "bug". However did you compile your map also? and did you create it properly? you cannot have no open areas in your map, it will have to be closed off by a skybox or of some material (dont use nodraw textures, transparent, or glass to close off map).

yo the map editor comes with the source games, just open your steam window, go to the tools tab and download and install the Source SDK not SDK Base. Once you have done that, launch the Source SDK then launch Hammer Editor once the SDK loads. An icon says that you need to configure hammer, click continue anyway and i believe a weblink will assist you on configureing Hammer.

However! there is an easier way...
This is what I did: I launch Source SDK, reset game configurations, then close out of sdk, launch cs:s, close out of it, then relaunch sdk then it automatically configures for you.

Nice little tutorial, better than the basic room tutorials. Though perhaps you could be better prepared and also explain a few things instead of just saying "we'll do this" (eg; the hollowing part). Nevertheless, learnt a few things and can't complain too much as it's just a overview of basic mapping.

To those who can't see anything in their Hammer 3-D camera view, since a lot of people is having this problem, the answer is simple.

When you have hammer running and you opened a document, go to the top left where the tool bar is (File, Edit. Map, etc.) and go to View/Center 3-D vews on selection. What this does is bring you to the center of origin, the x,y,z axis of 0.

If you still having problems, email me, or go to my help forums, that I posted in a recent post (on the first page of comments)

So if you need an online chat for problems, or something we can talk, and I will be happy to assist you.

Thanks once again,

You need to go to map which is up by file. Scroll down to entity report then hit go to. This should fix the camera, which valve broke.

Wait i figured it out.. and for any problems any other people have.. You have to click the camera on the left hand side and click your box then you are free to roam around it
