Hello, I am making a surf map, and this is what i need help with: there are two spawns on each side, and you jump onto the ramp and it curves in to make one ramp. I need help making the curves,appreciate your help


( do I make the half-ramp (one-sided) then click it twice to make the 4 circles on eacher corner appear then turn it in?)
because my problem with that is that its uneven

You want a half-pipe?

Sounds Like something you're going to need vertex manipulation for.

Just don't make invalid (concave) shapes with the vertex manipulator or it will not compile correctly.

Hint: If you make triangular sections of floor, you can raise and lower the corners without worrying about making invalid shapes.

EDIT:Uhhh...I think i misundertood ur question but you would do the same thing except turn the brushes using the TOP view...Its a little more complicated and myn isnt right cause i didnt make the brushes look like ramps but its the same way you would do it...(Click for image)

No what you said is correct, you double click to make thoe 4 circles at the edges and then u turn the Brush, and then once the brush is turned you click on it, Hold Shift and drag it to make a nother one, and give the second one a little less slope and put its bottem left alligned inside alligned with the 1st ones bottem right....If that makes sense...lol. I made some pictures to explain a little better....

Ok so Make a normal ramp, standing straight...like thi one
(Click for image)


Turn it a little to give it a slope
(Click for image)

Now hold shift and make a copy of that one and give the 2nd one a little less slope and allgin the corners together (To allign the Corners better Press the [ Button for a bigger graph and the ] for a smaller one)
(Click for image)

Now just keep making them and alligning them....

Thers also a video on YouTube, but its kinda hard to unerstand and goes pretty quick....http://youtube.com/watch?v=nXxk2qLlTgY&feature=related

Just a quick aside out of interest- why is it Hammer doesn't like concave brushes? Is it just laziness on Valve's part? :D

Well you can always make a concave structure with multiple brushes but ye, its gay they dont allow 1 single brush to be concave

Concave brushes are just not part of the .MAP format (from Quake). There is no way to write a concave brush in .MAP.

Brushes are defined as the space contained inside a group of planes.

That's why brushes "explode" when they save to .MAP wrong. Because they are missing a plane to contain it from one or more directions.
