I am getting a little bored on mapping; do you have any tutorials on mapping that isn't just making a box?

Ummm. The point is that the tutorials teach you the basics, then your supposed to make the rest. There are no tutorials that will tell you spep by step how to make a complete, distributable map.

I just want tutorials on making maps. I don't need music; just guides since I couldn't find any.

If you raid through the Master Sticky, there are tons in there which cover all sorts.

Rich Diesal's, for instance, cover spikes, curves, arches, spiral staircases, shader lights, etc etc.

And then the other tutorial sites are bound to have some fresh content.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Just don't forget that all maps, in essence, contain one REALLY, REALLY BIG box with a bunch of seriously messed up little boxes inside, and terrain to disguise the fact that you are actually playing inside a REALLY REALLY BIG box

What are you talking about? Maps with one huge skybox and everything inside it are rare examples. No serious mapper builds his maps like that, if he can avoid it. There's no need to, and you are just begging for FPS problems that way.

So, better forget that, indeed.
