Little help for a new map maker


Recommended Posts


If this is your first time having a shot at mapping, a curved staircase is not really the most easy thing to do right ahead. You're better of learning the different tools from Hammer first and take small steps from there.

Here are some sites with tutorials (from beginner to advanced) that will help you get started.




Also, the VDC is an amazing source of information:


Hope that helps!

Hi coolfacts!

Want to hear a cool fact? Generally, it's really good if you take the time to experiment on your own, google the problem (the above link was the first result for "curved staircase hammer") and then post in the right forum if you still need help. Because if you do those three things first, it feels less like we are the manservants of a lazy person when we help you out. :)

    • [CS:GO] Shore
      One of the projects I worked on after I made de_austria.

      Yeah, I know the timing is really bad (CS2!), but can't change it... 🙁

      In general a lot went wrong during this project. Had a lot of problems with the layout, but I think I found a good compromise in the end. Also learned many new things. Maybe I would even be ready to create a really good map now after all, but I think that it's gonna be the final one. I really like making maps, but it has become too time consuming over the years for just being a hobby. Unfortunately I never managed to get a job in the games industry. So that's it. I hope it's a worthy ending of 20 years of making maps for me. 🙂

      Shore is a bomb defusal map for CS:GO that takes place on Lofoten Islands, Norway. (Also have a Hostage version of this that works well imo)

      I took some inspiration from this place in Norway:
