So instead of me making hundreds of threads with one question in each about anything I want to know about Hammer and mapmaking, or anyone else who wants to, can post in this thread. Ask questions Small chat Post tips Show your work (prefab, texture, model, anything relevant) Give us your tutorials (level changing, boss fights, something complex or new) Just dump what you have in this thread, small or large, for other mapmakers to see, learn about or to get inspiration from.

Tutorials in other languages: Any problems here please let me know so I can fix. My first question will be about what I can not put out in the void. Like a chopper coming to save us in a ZE map. Just starting from outside the map, not flying or stopping outside the map in the void. Is there anything that can't be out in the void completely or partly that will bug or lag the map?
