I'm trying to make a map. I tried pressing F1 and it didn't work. ok a few questions 1.How do make a spawn point 2.how do you make buildings? 3. how do you make water or lava? 4. How do you make comet shapes? 5. How do I make shaders? (water) You do this and I'll make a pretty good map :deal: deal? P.S. how do you place items?
read the master sticky and look for the mapping tutorials. Several shader tutorials are there too so the master sticky should answer ALL of your questions
1. rightclick on the grid take "info_player_start" 2. The simple but "bad" way is to make a box by dragging by holding down your mouse button on the grid and then press hollow on the menu. 3. On the menu theres "Textures" take Common there and you will find water. 4. a round ball is created by 2 end caps. Make a brush and select "Curve" end cap. 5. This is a normal textfile that you name .shader later. Open a shader with wordpad and watch on a map with a water concept. 6. Depends on what items. Usually they can be found at item when you right click on the grid I hope that you have gtkradiant 1.4.0 atleast
... I suggest you read this...all of it.
