    Hello everyone.

    I've decided to release my first map ever made in hammer.
    I started using hammer about 2 days ago, and since then, I've been reading tutorial after tutorial...And this is what it turned in to.

    I decided to make an orange map for my first map, since they are rather simple and I just wanted to get the basics down first.

    I expect constructive criticism and hints to what I should fix and improve on.

    Thanks! :)

    Special Thanks to Geit for helping me whenever I had trouble.... which was every 5 seconds.

    Hi there Slintas!

    What im noticing already is the map is way to open. This leads way to snipers controlling everything.

    Also i think you are mistaken when you say

    As an orange map doesn't need to be any simpler then a regular map.

    Takes some time, learn some tutorials and hop in chat for some good feedback. Don't expect to get it over night and do expect to spend weeks/months working on a map.

    Quite good for a first map, you may want to raise the ceilings of buildings and implement larger, but a less amount of windows in future maps :)

    Oh wow. That's one nifty orange map. Guess I was thinking more of Orange X3.

    Also yes, the map as it is now is quite sniper friendly I agree. Guess I should make some obstacles here and there.

    And finally, yeah you're right. I'm quite impatient and want everything to be done as fast as possible. Been that way all my life. But, since Hammer is quite addictive, I guess I'll get over that :)

    Thanks!

    Are you going to texture this map at some point?

    No. Not because I don't want to, but because when I apply another texture the brush disappeares. I have no idea why. I've tried to restart hammer and all that.

    Updated to version 2. Looks, feels and plays much better now :)

    Still not a masterpiece, but it's ok I guess.
