1. Read through this tutorial: 6. Liquids

2. You probably haven't created the right folder hierarchy. You need to put the *.bsp file into the "maps" folder. And furthermore you need an *.arena file in the scripts folder of the pk3. Then you can select it from the multiplayer or skirmish mode. For the arena file: Go into the scripts folder of pak0.pk3 and go through one of them.

I don't remember being able to swim in Quake water. I don't think you can.

the pk3 must have the correct paths (folders). Isn't there a tutorial on this?

- use winzip
- recreate all the necessary folder that you are using in a temporary area. This way you can place only your new files in those folders without the game's files in there too.
- copy your files over. Note that you will have folders like main, maps, etc
- in your temporary game folder that you created, select everything and right click. You will have an option to add to zip.

Using this method should put all the files in folder represented in the winzip column titled Path

Start the map in /devmap mode, type in noclip, search for a nice place for a screenshot. Now type into the console: /cg_draw2d 0 and /cg_drawgun 0. Now you shouldn't have anything anymore on the monitor. Then type in: /screenshotjpeg or bind it to a key with /bind keyhere screenshotjpeg. Now it takes a screenshot everytime you press that key. It will save it in baseq3/screenshots. Before you take the next screenshot, be sure that the text in the upper left corner has been gone.

Be sure that you didn't just place the texture on the top surface. Just use it for the whole brush and you should be able to swim; but don't forget to use the nodraw texture for connected water brushes. Read my tutorial.

Quote:
and for some reason it hurts


You took a water texture which has a certain command in the shader which hurts the player. Just use another one. I prefer clear_calm1 or clear_ripple.

Would be great if you could give us a detailed description what you did exactly.

I'm doing it like this: Create a new folder with the name of the map. In this folder I create all the custom folders I need (env, maps, textures, scripts, sounds). Then I fill these folders with content, select them and zip them with winrar. Then I rename it from *.zip into *.pk3 and it works.
