allright I've got a few noobish questions that I need answered.
Is there somewhere a list of the enitities that are in The Hammre and what they do?
How do I put water into my map?
How do I make it so that CTs/Ts can't buy anything?
How can I put weapons on the ground?
How can I make it so that CTs/Ts respawn with a certain weapon?
How do I make a map a deathmatch map?
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Try Googling a list of entities.
Make a very small buyzone such that no-one can get to it.
weapon_strip will give people certain weapons, I think, and armoury entities allow weapons to be picked up - maybe.
Dunno.
Oh, water is just func_water.

What do you mean by "deathmatch map"?

You know, a map with a team deathmach game. You choose what weapons you'll have when you respawn and you respawn right after you die, not having to wait (there are no rounds).

Oh and how do I make a ladder? I try to make it like it says here: http://www.superjer.com/learn/func_ladder.php
but I can only put the illusionary part and the climby part in the same place or one square apart (I put the illusionary part on an already existing wall). I can't make it so that the climby part would touch the ilusionary part and be right in front of it.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Counter-Strike has rounds. If you've ever played a game that doesn't, it must have been a mod.

Try changing the grid size [with the square brackets] to move your ladder parts to the perfect location.

ah, finally figured out how to make the grid smaller.

Oh and I have played a deathmatch game on CS 1.6, though it may have been the server, not the map.

EDIT: If I don't create a buyzone, there still is one in the map. Do I have to somehow delete that one or will it go away if I make a new one in a wall?

Like I said, make one somewhere no-one can get to it.

yeah, that's what I'm asking. If I make a new one in a wall, will the one that's automatically in the map disappear?

ok tnx.
But I'm not done yet
2 more:


1. I made a ladder out of three parts:
- climby part (func_ladder with AAATRIGGER texture)
- visible part (func_illusionary with a random texture that looks like a ladder - it doesn't begin with a {, because it doesn't have to be transparent, it's in a wall)
- solid part (a brush with clip texture)

I put the visible part and the solid part in the same place and the climby part in front of them. But then I climbed the ladder and he fell down at the top like there was no solid part. So I went back into the hammre and I selected the solid part, pressed ALT+ENTER and it said it was func_illusionary. Why did this happen and how can I make it solid again?


2. Is it possible to make the area where you can make the map bigger?

Just change the type in the pane to the... right hand side I think?

No, that's the maximum size. If you go over 4096 in any one direction you'll get a compile error.

ok:
http://img90.imageshack.us/img90/3339/zahammereditorom2.png

the red (selected) piece is the visible part (func_illusionary with the CSTRIKE_WE2PPWL texture).
Right in front of it (more or less invisible in the top view, but visible in the camera view) is the climby part (func_ladder with AAATRIGGER texture).

Now at first I only had those two and the illusionary part was in the wall. But then the textures of the wall and the illusionary part and the wall were mixing (because they occupied the same space) and the texture was fucked up.
So I deleted the wall in that space and created a normal brush with the CLIP texture, exactly as large as the visible part and placed it so that it now occupies exactly the same place as the visible part.
But then for some reason that solid brush became a func_illusionary and because of that (in the game) after I climb the ladder, there is no solid part there (only 2 illusionary parts), my character just falls down through both of the illusionary parts.

Now what I want to know is:
1. Why did the brush become func_illusionary?
2. How do I change it back from func_illusionary to a normal brush?

I hope this was clear enough.

Ok. I don't know why it became a func_illusionary, maybe if you copied the original one or something...

Anyway, to turn an entity back to a regular brush, select it and hit ctrl + W.

hmm... Now I have a big problem. I make a brush an entity (CTRL+T) and then if I select another object, it just becomes a normal brush again.

EDIT: aha, found the problem. Apparently the CTRL+W is also the combination for toggle group ignore and instead of moving the selected object to world it just toggled group ignore on.

Did you forget to put point-entities in your map? You need at least one info_player_start and one info_player_deathmatch and a light-entity.

Or maybe you accidentally put an entity outside the map?

QUACK! QUACK!
