Making ET maps

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone- I've been looking into making maps now for a little while, and I was wondering about the tool(s) used for map creation. I've seen the Enemy Territory Map Editor being used quite frequently, but there are so many others that are floating around on the web as well- and I was wondering if one in particular stood out against the others.

I'll be posting to this thread as I make the map(s), so if you're interested in my project, and/or want to give me ideas please either subscribe or shoot me a PM.

See ya on the server!

GTK Radiant is the program, but u'll need some time to learn how to use it, its not that simple as you think

I figure. I've seen lots of people complaining about how hard it is to use. But as they say, practice makes perfect ;)

I first started with GTK-Radiant and made some small Quake 3 maps, it's easier as you don't have to go very deep into scripting (like contructables, destroyables, moving, command map and objective based stuff). There are many and easy to understand tutorials around for Q3 maps. For ET it's getting way more complex and the Warchest forums are a good place to start and there is SD-Radiant which covers more functions for ET and its scripting system.

 

You can basically look at it like a CAD software which is used by architects and engineers, it's quite complex. There are many functions and plugins which can make your life easier but you have to get to know them all, it will take you some weeks at least till you can design complex geometries as you imagine them.

 

But if you are patient and motivated it's a lot of fun gl&hf ;)

Thanks for giving me places to look! I'll check them out once my hand stops cramping from playing ET for 5 hours straight. :P I have some experience with CAD/CAM software (Autocad, Surfcam, GIBBScam) but everything is different, and regardless of my previous knowledge I'm sure there will be lots for me to learn. Thanks for the luck, and I'm excited to start working on whatever I can (even if it's just a flat field :P)
