    So, long story short- I'm making a maritime map, and I need to convey the rocking motions of a ship. As it stands, the env_shake entity works for my purposes, with one caveat: with a high amplitude and low frequency, very noticeable 'hitching' occurs, where the viewpoint jumps from one angle to another instantaneously. Now, I'm okay with making people slightly nauseous, but this is just plain unplayable. Does anyone know of a workaround?

    If there is water, maybe you can tie it to a func_water_analog and move it with a rotating door that oscillates at a small angle and very slowly.

    That wouldn't work indoors, which is pretty much the main focus of my map.

    Unfortunately, this is just how env_shake works. The shake effect is achieved by randomly changing the camera angles in a single isntance. This isn't noticable at higher frequencies because it happens so fast, but at lower frequencies it becomes more noticable. You'll probably have to find another way to simulate motion.
