    Chapter 2 Episode 2


    My favorite part of this entire series @5:54 (also something I'm willing to bet a lot of seasoned mappers don't know about.)

    I love the speed that you talk at, it's actually refreshing not having to wait for the speaker to catch up for once. Big thanks for the series crash, I also went through most of your other dev videos on your channel.

    It's true, your pace is good for a video tutorial, but damn, that looping music gets reeeaaallly annoying

    I know you're explaining the logic behind different game modes right now, And I thank you greatly for making this series as I probably wouldn't have even tried to map if you hadn't. But please go over displacements soon-ish. I ask because I only just figured out how to make, and use them today after searching for 3 days. I'm very very new to hammer (having only opened it for the first time about 4 days ago) and had no idea what to call turning a brush into a polygon mesh plane surface that could be used to create smooth terrain, would be called. All I had to go on was a few terms I remember from modeling in Maya. I was actually starting to just make a bunch of smaller brushes and use the vertex tool to create the illusion of a displacement by lining up the edges and snapping to the grid, because I didn't know what to do.

    This morning I finally found the Valve developer page for it. https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Displacement

    In retrospect I should have probably just gone and asked someone here.

    While you mentioned that you are not going over all the gamemode types, could you do a video that can direct people to other tutorials on how to do uncommon gamemodes such as territorial control, special delivery, mann vs machine, medieval mode, ect. that is similar to your resource video at the end of chapter 1? Appreciate it a ton if you could, good tutorials are actually quite difficult to find and require alot of digging that could lead to outdated methods, especially for under appreciated game types.

    An episode on handling feedback and making positive changes to your map could be a good idea given recent events on the site. Make it clear that feedback isn't a personal attack, but is a chance to improve.

    I'm not sure if it's just because I woke up but at ~3m46s I wish there was a tad more time before switching to the next topic, just so I had more time to nail down what you said or to pause the video or something. Or at least it was around that section that I thought about what you said for a second and then realised I missed the next part.

    Good talk overall though!
