Counter Strike Source mapping.

So, Lets begin.


The first thing you have to do is make a new map :

Create a box that should look like this :




When you finish with the box, add it some texture.


Click the box with this tool jjbxislx6m6xlcnoeewa_thumb.jpg and then click shift + a.


This menu will appear :




When this menu appears click browse :




When you click browse a variaty of textures that you can apply is going to appear.

Select one.(I personaly type on search "wall" and I put a brick wall for my box texture)


When you find a texture double click it and then click "Apply".


Now, use the camera tool so you can see your box on the camera window.

How do you do it?It is simple.Click the camera tool kukovk9vua4ijkwtrd9h_thumb.jpg and then go to your top left window.

Hold click and make a line that that shows your box.


If you done everything right till now your map should something like this :
