Map Creation Tutorial
I know this may sound stupid, but can anyone be so kind and explain how the map generation tool (which can be found on this forum) works? I have a map ready to go but I'm stuck with this complicated-looking generator.

Thanks in advance.

(Wew, I left 2 posts in the last hour today, new record?)

RE: Map Creation Tutorial
there are more friendly editors, like Jernejl's interactive map editor

in the RDL's editor you have to create/move objects with server commands.. I've failed to understand it years ago

I know about that map editor, but it's just that the fact you needed to use the generator to make your map playable on the server dumb-founded me. I wonder if Mr.Left accepts requests for doing the "put map into cycle" process.

RE: Map Creation Tutorial
ah, you mean the web page with map generator

with map editor you'll get the list of objects, nothing more.
the map itself is a sa:mp gamemode, creating it requires some programming skills. to make it easier, RDL made that web generator where you can just write map parameters you want and get the complete gamemode script required for build

the main parts of the map are objects and car spawn positions.
also you need to setup some miscellaneous things like temporary spawn position, spaw view, fall-off threshold...

there are many info in the map creation sub-forum. what exactly you don't understand?

RE: Map Creation Tutorial
Well...that was the thread I used to help myself during my map-making process.

I'll try and figure out what to do with the generator. Thanks for trying to help anyway

RE: Map Creation Tutorial
... you just fill it with the data you need, then press generate. web server fills the template with lines you put, and produces the gamemode you can compile and put on your local sa:mp server for testing.

if there is something unknown to you, ask what's exactly you don't understand.

RE: Map Creation Tutorial
To be honest, if there is a video or a step by step guide on how to use the generator, that would definitely help me alot.

But still, I'll try and figure out how the thing works, since the server is kinda in a dire need for new maps.

I don't know if you can tell, but I was being sarcastic right here.
