A short description of what my experience with mods is and what to expect.

Posted by on

So, as you read, this is my absolute first mod, im hoping it for it to be like 30-45 minutes of gameplay spanning across 2-3 maps. Due to many sleepless nights watching Adam Miller-The Architect Of Games, many sleepless nights playing all kinds of HL2 mods, and replaying the trilogy like 11 times, Im pretty confident I can design a somewhat decent level, but that's the problem, "design" and im worried If I have the skill to pull off everything I want in Hammer. Well, only time shall tell.


If you're worried about whether or not you can make a full mod, you probably shouldn't be advertising one. Not to discourage you, quite the opposite, but it might be better to practice mapping on your own for a while instead of putting pressure on yourself to develop a full campaign. People new to modding often do that and get burnt out, so just have fun with it until you have something that you're really proud of.

You make a really good point but im not planning on this being a thing I do 24/7, im expecting this to take like a month at minimum, and honestly if my progress will keep going as good as it is I think it will turn out fine. My biggest issue with starting projects is that im bad and I dont have the patience to, but I noticed Hammer is so easy to work with and it's so much fun pressing that F9 button and seeing how good your level is.
