Hey

I've just learned how to make maps for HL2, i've been making simple maps for HL2 DM thing is i can't think of any thing to make, anyways I had an idearm, I would need a team of 5-10 people, then one would start off the map, makes a simple room or something then then they pass it on to the next in the team and they add a little bit to it and so on, untill its been round a couple of times and then see what the out come is.

So if any one is intrested please feel free to join in.

This is opened to any skilled mappers, i'm a newbie myself.

Thanks Rizzo :D

What do you use to make the maps, that Hammer Proggy that comes with the game?
I've heard there's a Radient type program for it, not sure where to get it from though, if there is such a program. If there is, does anyone know where to get it from? Hammer looks like a pain to use tbh.

the hammer editor is really easy to use and learn. i have tried a few different level editors and it is by far my favorite
