I’m new to this site but have been mapping for HL and HL2 for years.
I am looking at creating some Team DM based maps but have a few questions before I begin in Hammer just so I don’t waste my time.
I find DM and team DM to be a little repetitive. Is there a player base that perfer objective based maps as opposed to plain DM?
By objective maps I mean a button or trigger that gives one side a significant advantage (i.e. gives them access to rocket launcher) or wins the round. Maps that promote team work rather than random chaos killing…
Could someone recommend some Steam groups that play these regularly that I could approach for play testing purposes?
Where can I find information about what entities are valid in a DM map and which valid entities would produce significant slow down to a DM map?
So for example if I chose to include a Train passing through a map at regular intervals or a lift that drops down a shaft etc… is this possible in multiplayer and what is best to be avoided…
Thanks for any help you can offer…
