    I already have the player not take damage, but I want to get rid of the screen shaking that occurs.
    How exactly did you make it so a player didn't take damage like that? I'm trying to do that too, but I haven't been able to figure it out yet.

    I just used point_clientcommand to give the player godmode.

    Obviously this only works in singleplayer maps.

    When you do ground displacements, do you leave solid dev brushes underneath? And can they intersect the volumes of the brushes that turned into displacements? I always feel like I'm doing something wrong if those intersect, but I collide displacements and brushes all the time.
    I usually put nodraw brushes underneath Also, I use nodraw because I like to believe it improves performance (a little) bit at least, since the displacement is the thing you're supposed to see and whatever is underneath should not need to be drawn.

    Hello,
    I am currently making a Half life 2 modification. Not exactly great with coding or hammer but on my way. I will probably be on this threat, asking a lot of stupid questions but here goes.

    I currently have a house, and while going though it I want the character to talk to him self kind of like a point and click adventure game. Such as, there is a smell of rotting flesh so he would say
    "Ugh, something smells like death.

    And have that pop up as subtitles, I mite be adding voice acting, but that would be down the development cycle. Thanks for any help given.

    EDIT:
    It seems shortcut keys arn't working properly, when I press F9 or CRTL+C it doesn't appear to work unless I hold it down for a few seconds, which is a bit strange.

    Look at default sound scripts to gain knowledge on how to add subtitles, use a point_clientcommand to execute a "play" command (or use an ambient_generic and set it to "play everywhere")

    I only have basic knowledge in this area, so this may not be the best answer.

    Is there any way to fix the weird shadows and bright spots on/around my displacements? This is for CSS.

    How would I go about simulating skybox lighting in an indoor area?

    Maybe clip the ceiling horizontally into 2 parts, turn the lower part into func_brush so it won't cast lightmap shadows and then put brushes with toolsskybox texture between the two ceiling layers

    This is kinda silly though

    Do I even understand your question correctly?

    Like the skylights in the first trainstation map (before the security checkpoint)? Try a window textured brush tied to func_illusionary.

    I have a problem with objects in the basement I have constructed in my map. Even though there isn't any light in the basement, the objects shine like they are in the light. I have tried numerous things to get it to work, but nothing has solved my problem. I will include the compile log below in case there is something in there that someone can spot.

    Though im not sure if this is an issue since its a brush, you should still fix it.

    I have a feeling your problem is caused because you havent built cubemaps:

    Any leak is an issue. The entity used is just the closest entity to the hole.

    You can also do Map>Load Pointfile to make SURE there aren't any leaks.

    You might not have all of the water block's faces other than the top one set to the nodraw texture.

    A leak is caused by a hole in the map. This can also be caused by func_detailing the skybox.

    Rememeber, the map cannot be sealed by entities (such as func_detail), water or displacements.

    For a multiplayer map, what would be the best way to have players "put on" a suit that allows them to traverse a radiation filled room, and die if they enter the room without having picked up a suit? I'd probably create a machine that spawns a new suit each time a radiation suit is taken.

    Sounds to me like you could use the Item_suit model, and then turn it into a custom entity that allows you to withstand radiation. Probably an easier way, but that's my take.

    Yeah, I'm planning on using the HEV suit model and having it disappear when the player takes it/touches it, but I'm not sure what process to use to have each player be unaffected by the radiation trigger_hurt after they grab a suit. This is for a TTT map I'm creating by the way.

    What kind of tutorial would you guys like to see? I would prefer if it was a general Source SDK tutorial and not too game-specific. (something that can be used in any Source game)

    I was thinking about doing another video tutorial

    Smart-ass input/output shit which is complicated until you understand it.

    Edited:

    Like some sexy mechanisms that spawn a dickload of can props that fall into a pit, which detects when there are 3 cans in and when 3 cans are in the pit, the pit opens up and the cans are dropped out into some other place.

    I might need an example for this...

    I can't really think of anything off the top of my head that requires super complicated I/O triggers

    That sounds easy enough.

    I think I'll do a tutorial on that.

    Apart from increasing map file size, lightmaps don't impact in-game performance, correct?

    Just tested it and I got it to work

    Fairly simple really

    I think I'll make the tutorial tomorrow though...

    It's already 6:30 in the morning and I have to go to work in less than 9 hours and I haven't even slept yet.

    Generally no, but old hardware still struggles because with a high lightmap density it's the same as loading a large texture.

    If you're still struggling with this issue, I am thinking you could try setting up a trigger_once and a func_physbox. The trigger will fire an output so that once it is activated the func_physbox will be parented ("SetParent") to "!activator" so anything allowed in the trigger's flags will have that func_physbox parented to it.
    Now you can just parent whatever mechanism you have in place (I guess a trigger of sorts) to the func_physbox and have it move along with the player (or Client, as it is called in the trigger's flags).

    Although this was useful to read for various purposes, I'm not sure how a func_physbox would help here. The main purpose of what I'm trying to do here is prevent the player from being hurt in a radiation filled room after they pick up a suit before entering. If they enter without having picked up a suit first, they die. I'm not planning on having a suit being physically attached to the player at all. Remember that this is for a multiplayer TTT map.
