I wanna make maps!

Post by Envy on Wed 17 Mar 2010, 11:48 pm

hey guys, I saw Nero and Pauke and DeoX making maps, so I was wondering where to get the editor and which one is best to use? If you could also tell me how to install it that would be great.

Thanks

There is a map making editor in your savage folder. Open editor.bat and create a new map Smile

the easyest way is using a hieghtmap. thers a turotial on that. The hardest and most boring part are the ocluders. But dont explect to throw out a map in 2 hours, a good map takes a day of work. and ad one for debugig and testing

I never used tutorial , i discovered everything by myself and created my own style so , i think you must do same , so you'll discover and use the editor faster , but you need one or two weeks of training before starting a map , good luck Smile

ENVY. I can show you Cola's Tutorial. It's not a video, it's a web page.
Everything's very clear and easy to understand. You want it ?

Envy,

I very strongly recommend reading tutorials, despite what Pauke has said, there is a lot to learn and it is made many times easier by reading other map makers hard won experience.

Below is a couple of links, if you spend some time reading and absorbing the information, you will find you will make much quicker progress than stumbling around alone in the editor.

http://www.evolvedserver.com/savagemapping/
(this guide is written for SFE however it is still mostly relevant... only some of the GUI has changed, and it is a really well written guide)



http://www.newerth.com/smf/index.php/topic,8427.0.html
(this is a link to a thread overon has made which combines a multitude of resources into the once compact post)


http://www.newerth.com/smf/index.php/topic,8652.0.html
(this is a thread showing my personal binds and outlining their uses, it is INVALUABLE to making mapping faster/easier and more professional)

I am also in the process of working on an XR editor guide, its only about 40% complete at the moment, but keep your eyes peeled because it will hopefully help you all understand the mapping process much better.

Rmod only changes the GUI of the editor. So all the principals are exactly the same as the XR editor and SFE editor. To be honest I prefer the XR editors GUI anyway. However the links I have provided you with don't change, they are just as useful with Rmod as they are with XR or SFE.

I tried making maps but my problem is that, I think the map is good, then I try to make it better, better, better, better and it becomes a piece of s**t at the end Sad
