    Hello all,

    I just figured out how to use the basics of hammer (mapping out, brushes, models, spawnpoints, ammunition, etc.), but I need some help with making an actual game mode. I have a map completed, but now all I need to do is turn it into an arena map. If there is some easy way to do it, can anyone tell me?

    I think it has something to do with the entities tool, but I am not 100% sure.

    Again, thanks in advance!
    Frogger :)

    Thank you guys! It worked like a charm. I had to combine some tutorials together, but it all worked out. Now I have a new problem. When I play on my map, the demoman's bottle is now a purple plaid. Same goes for the Sniper's kukuri/jarate and Spy's knife. That is it. The textures go back to normal when I load a default map, and I was wondering what you guys might think the problem is with my map that is making the textures of the weapons do that.

    Thanks Again!

    Cubemaps.

    You need env_cubemaps and you also need to build them. There are tutorials all over this website on how to do it.

    You shouldn't need to do that to make arena work. My system is all inclusive and functional, what was the addition things you had to do?
