I followed the instructions of SuperJer's map making step-by-step thingy. But it won't work! When i try compiling my map, it says something about a directory or something. Maybe it's something about the .bat file?

[code:1]@echo off
hlcsg mapname
hlbsp mapname
hlvis mapname
hlrad mapname
copy mapname.bsp "E:\CS yay !\SteamApps\xx_wosylus_xx\counter-strike\cstrike\maps"
pause
"E:\CS yay !\Steam.exe" -applaunch 10 -dev +sv_cheats 1 +map mapname[/code:1]

what could it else be? please, help me. you'll get a cookie if you're lucky

Yup, i solved it. Of some reason the compiler has to be at the same directory as the game. But i have another problem now. When i rn my map in cs, i start as a ct, which can fly all over the place, has no ammo, or no HUD at all. And when i swicth to terroist, the game just ends. It crashes I followed superjer's example, so i guess it shouldt be doing that. right?

The game is starting in singleplayer mode. Try starting a "New Game" on your map instead. Singleplayer mode is good for debugging certain things.

Sweet! It worked I am now making an new map, which i call de_doublebox. More Questions:

Can a server run with a homemade map?

Are there any rules for calling your maps stuff like "De_whatever", "Fy_whatever" and so on? I guess there is, but what re the rules?

And, one more thing, how to create buy-zones?

Yes, you can run a homemade map on any server.

The naming is just for convenience. It doesn't mean anything to the game. If you make a de_something map then people expect it to be bomb/defuse. fy_something is for fantasy maps.

Buy zones: just create a func_buyzone and play with its properties to set the team it's for and stuff.

Use a info_bomb_target entity for a bombsite.
To make a sky use a sky texture and go to map properties and go to environment map and type the name of the sky eg:dust,morning

the bomb thing works, but the sky thing doesn't. I typed dust,morning but nothing really happened. what's wrong?

once again no one is using the search button

"Qwx" said:
There is sky texture in valve\halflife.wad. Or you can make your on sky texture. Create brush with this sky texture where you whant to have sky. Then (if your are using WC tools) go to Map properties, find enviroment map graph and enter your enviroment (for example city1 for default cs_assault sky). If you'll leave it blank sky will be cliff like thing. All enviroment maps are placed in cstrike\gfx\env directory. If it's still unclear i strongly recommend to visit VANDAL'S ALMANAC (http://www.karljones.com/halflife/almanac.asp).

Happy mapping! ;)
