    I actually created a room.

    Of course, it didn't have any doors so I couldn't go anywhere but that's okay because I couldn't move anyway. Not sure why the walls didn't go all the way down but at least there was a ceiling and lights and windows with nothing to see. :w00t:

    What he said. I remember following the 'my first room' tutorial to the letter. I got in, saw skybox on all the walls, including the floor. The metal fence and box I had placed in the corner were there, and I could jump on them. Good times :) Now the real trick is to advance your skills. Create 2 rooms, connected by a hallway. Also, grats.

    Heh just one note, if youre player couldnt move i think its because you put your info_player_teamspawn either in the floor or actually on the floor. You need to move them up at least a few units off the ground.

    If you look at decompiled valve maps the spawn points are pratically in midair!

    Great! It's fun isn't it! I remember my first room. Well it wasnt actually a room it was a coast with a mansion but I had 1 fps because I didnt know what I was doing lol.
    Anyway, make some maps, but dont put them on fpsbanana lol. Oh and also, read this!
