How

Ive never made a gun game map before so ive decided to start on one...but my question is, is do you have to do anything special to actually make it a gun game map? or just dont put buy zones and the mod itself works out the rest?

    You can add buyzones, the mod just doesn't include them.

    I was wondering the same thing arnt these maps just fy_ maps if the mod ignores the buyzone anyway?

    Has anyone approached laying out of a Gungame map design process differently ?

    Are there any tactical angles to consider or focus on, to do with a gungame mod?

    How about Deathmatch maps - aint they similar to fy_maps too?

    There's nothing special needed.

    I personally just don't add buy zones, weather the mod ignores them, i think it does but i am not sure.

    with gungame, make it small compact and fast passed, i wouldn't go bigger than dust2 for example, most of my maps are way smaller.

    you dont need too many spawns 26-30 would do the trick easy, although i admit most of my maps have 48 :D

    Dont bother adding buyzones, gg overrides them anyway so they are useless. dont lay out weapons since players will be given them by the gg script.

    As chewy said, I have to disagree. While smaller maps are popular, a bigger map isn't necessarily going to be bad but most likely unpopular. I have to say tho, I've played medium-big sized maps and they are my fav.

    48 player spawns is becoming typical now, but i can't hurt to bas your map around 64 players

    Nothing special, try and get at least a minimum of 32 spawn points, although 40 is ideal for most all maps, but more wouldn't hurt. Make the map fairly small and have a good balance of places to rush, camp, stalk, and snipe from. I'd suggest looking at other good gungame maps for ideas.

    Hes right really, theres is nothing to stop you going big, small is most popular and if you make a bigger map it
    isn't necessarily going to be bad but most likely unpopular.


    this would be your first gun game map, i'd make several small maps and get them on here so you can get some feedback, then if you want to you can go into big maps
