How can I make diagonal shapes on my map? In the Valve Hammer Editor, I only know how to make vertical and horizontal lines from the Top View. Is it possible to make a diagonal line/shape? For example, making a map in the shape of a triangle, is that possible? A triangle from the Top View, that is. Thanks very much everyone!

Oh, and one more question. Is it possible to edit an already made map? Like changing de_rats.bsp to de_rats.map to edit it inside the Valve Hammer Editor. Thanks again!

Oh, and one more question.(This is the last one lol) How can I make my own custom textures? Like, I used a camera to take pictures of the wall in my room and I want that wall texture to be in my map. How can I do that? Thanks again!

um im not sure, but i use the clipping tool to cut things. click the object first with the selection tool, then click the clipping tool(shift+x). then draw a line from one side of your block to another. When youre done press enter.

I think there might be other ways... but this is how i do

np if you want to edit another map then go here http://www.superjer.com/forum/can_we_edit_a_bsp_file_with_hammer_applications.php

its really complicated from what i read xD.

and you can take a screenshot and use wally to make your own texutres. But i tried making my own and you cant get really big textures. Theyll be pretty small so i just decided to use the texutres i have or dl them
