MODScon 2010 - L4D2
Valve's Source : L4D2 Mapping
I would work up a map, but I'm not a L4D fan. It's one of those games that you play through each level once or twice (maybe three times) and then move on to another game. That and I'm still mapping for CoD4 because I refused to purchase CoDWW, and CoDM... [more]

Nightvision in MP
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
I've been messing around with the ambient settings (I'm cautious to mess with sunlight because I got it set up perfectly) and I havent gotten quite the results I wanted. It works okay, but not as well as I'd like. I used Strike's worldspawn and it work... [more]

Nightvision in MP
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
I'm making a night map with a full moon so parts of the map are in moonlight; however, I want inside buildings to be dark so you need nightvision to see unless I place a light in the room. I've tried shadow casters, but that made it even worse. And pla... [more]

FX Error
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping

Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping

Will not build mp_mapname_load file!
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
If your map is single player, I dont believe there is a _load file for sp. It may be reading your map as a SP map.. make sure that your map name starts with a LOWERCASE "mp_" the compile tools are picky, I had that problem before because I had capitali... [more]

No I did not... Though, in the exploding barrels script you dont have to place the barrel pieces in the map in order for them to load, all you have to do is include it in your map's .csv file. I figured I'm doing something very similar with this, so it... [more]
