Source Maps

Post by Zaki90 on Tue Dec 29, 2009 12:20 pm

I have always wondered if any of yall make any source maps as in Counter Strike maps. I myself am map everyonce and a while when I have time.

This is probably the one I am working on right now: http://www.filefront.com/15247951/mexico_v3.bsp

I would love to get feedback or maybe report some bugs. So if yall have any source maps you would like to share I would love to see them and put a link to download.

Well, my computer couldn't run CS:S if its non-existant life depended on it.

But I have seen a lot of videos about Hammer, and I have seen a lot of custom Maps for TF2.

I do occasionally, I have tried to make some HL2 maps for a mod I was considering, but I can never optimize it properly.

Some maps I have tried to make are like, an expanded version of the antlion attack level in episode 2 (but with 6-8 hallways instead of 3), and a map that came to me... IN A DREAM (literally though)

CS:S is like a 32mb video card with 512mb of RAM. What kinda computer do you have?

What do you mean by optimize? Can you upload your map(s)?

Minimum: 1.2 GHz Processor, 256MB RAM, DirectX 7 level graphics card, Windows 2000/XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

Those are the minimum requirements. Your computer should be able to run it if it was made in the past 5-10 years.

Yeah but why scrape along with the bear necessities? My computer plays Crysis on the highest settings, Antialiasing x 8 before it gets problematic, and I STILL have trouble with SDK...

It is EXTREMELY demanding, especially if you use it the way it was meant to be used (like what those fellas at BM are doing... wonders).

I play crysis on max with no problems, and I don't have any problems with the sdk (though I don't really use it since UE3 was released for free on a non commercial license)

Could you post pictures of the map instead of making us download it?

I map from time to time, making small maps such as GunGame maps, and Sandbox maps for Garrys Mod. That's about it.

What do you mean by Sandbox? Sandbox is the gametype but that is kinda vague.

I know that, but I mean like construct maps or flat ones?

Can I see a screenshot of it?

I don't know where I put the .vtf and I'm pretty sure I never saved the .bsp to my maps folder, so I can't really get a screenshot.
It was a specialised map though, because these guys wanted to see if they could make a car that could drive up any slope, so I made a map with 5 ramps of varying height and difficulty. It was pretty cool, but very basic.

I'm eventually going to make a L4D map, which is somewhat similar. Does that count?

It is the source engine. I never got into L4D mapping.

Yeah it counts, but from what I've seen, it requires a lot of entity work to allow for the special infected spawning and what not. Plus the maps need to be incredibly detailed.

Well, here I am 6 months later, with a near completed version of that map I was talking about, I called it mexico v3. Its been through about thirty renditions and all hell has broken loose trying to map this map as fluid as possible.

Now with working AI ( but they still refuse to buy weapons).

A completed CT and T side that have been filled to the top with different entries and exits and over 20 ways to get around the map.

With now working skybox along with working lighting use.

Custom textures and more detail added to each item.

And a large, large map.



And last but not least...

Its still not completely finished.

Nice. Since you can't get the bots to buy weapons you probably won't know this, but how good is the gameplay?

It flushed, it actually flushed!

*cries*


Oh, this is kind of a secret project, so try to keep it under wraps:


I haven't worked on this in like, a year. It won't load up when I try and test it out anymore.

Do you still have the VTF? This looks pretty interesting.

You know, I forgot what a VTF is, (it's been a real long time).

If your referring to the map file that's been converted into a playable map (I think?) then I don't know, I'm pretty sure I have the maps saved though.
