Hi,

I'm an average hammer mapper, I've been trying to make a DeathRun map for past few weeks, but I always find myself doing 1/10 of the job and then quitting because it looks like shit.

The thing is, they always end up too small, or too big, or too easy.
What are some standards in mapping, what height and width of the walls?
What do you build first in a DR map, the traps, both CT and T base, or something else?

Which textures look nice with others, which don't etc.

I hope you see what I'm aiming to in here, thanks.

there is no "standerd" in hammer mapping.

besides lights, spawn points, and buttons.
I drink to forget but I always remember.

Well you can always download maps from other mappers to get inspired or try to make something from your hood into hammre .. oorrr while sitting somewhere enjoying the breeze and shit try to think something and draw it down on a paper.

As for the height of the walls i don't think it's something you can learn, but you can add an info_player_start and go to the cts head with the camera to see where it is and adjust the wall where you want it

Also you don't ask others what they build first in a map,it doesn't matter.

Nothing to say about da textures.

Your statement makes no sense whatsoever, do you even read what you type?

Thanks for the info (the other guy)

I always have lots of extra player starts floating around, so I can keep scale in mind.

Most textures look like crap together (or separate) but you have to make do.
I make a lot of my own textures when none of the defaults will do. The easiest way to do that is to just modify the defaults. Sometimes a simple change as adding a dark gradient to an existing texture can make it work for the map.

But most importantly, I design the whole thing on paper first. I find I'm much more likely to get a working result, and actually finish something, if it is designed first.
