  • Hey guys! It's been a while since I last visited Facepunch, but I was bitten by the mapping bug recently. I started messing around with Hammer like I used to, and I ended up working on a little golf course that is still in progress. I figured the best input on the map would come from these forums because of the level of expertise here. Here are a few pictures of what I have so far: Hole #1 [img]http://oi50.tinypic.com/ke7l00.jpg[/img] [img]http://oi48.tinypic.com/mrptw4.jpg[/img] Hole#2 [img]http://oi50.tinypic.com/2m61yyd.jpg[/img] [img]http://oi45.tinypic.com/qmzyw6.jpg[/img] So far the biggest lessons I've learned are making realistic terrain (Disclaimer: I'm not that great at it yet) and working with physboxes. I've also discovered that golf via source games is VERY HARD. Problems I Can See Right Now: -What features to add to make it look more realistic and appealing -How to make ball spin backwards when struck -How to carve hole in greens which require tons of displacement (Right now I'm using a teleporter that sends the ball back to the tee box after it rolls into the flag stick.) -How to find textures that resemble nice grass, especially on the greens Thanks so much for your time guys! I hope you enjoy my map. Here's a link to the .bsp: [url]http://www.sendspace.com/file/ua8oci[/url]

  • It's amazing and all but did you know there's a section for gmod mapping below? Other than that very good job!

  • Oh wow, I'm so sorry for that. Could someone please move my thread to the mapping section?
  • PM a mod if you want it moved, I don't think they just move then by request in the thread, or so I've heard. Looks like a nice map, though :v: [editline]4th June 2012[/editline] PM a mod if you want it moved, I don't think they just move then by request in the thread, or so I've heard.
