    Merged. You really didn't need to make two threads.

    Sorry, I don't think we can tell you every step. :p

    There are lots of nice "my first map" tutorials on YouTube, with video footage and voice and all. Great for getting started and learning the very basics of Hammer. Good luck!

    no one is going to hold your hand. hammer has a very steep learning curve, so a lot of reading should be expected.

    follow this advise.

    just play around and you will get the hang of it. To texture things like that, on the far right, you should see a picture of the current texture, press browse and then search until you find one you like, press OK and then select all the faces you want to have that texture, on the left, I think three from the bottom, there is a picture of a cube with a brick look to it (right underneath the green cube) press that button and you are done.

    Good luck mate, add me on steam if you want help (I am pretty noob to though so I dont know how to do everything). My ID is shdwpuppet, my name is Eddie the Combat Wombat
