  • Valve Hammer Editor

    I have a question concerning Hammer. I am making a CS:S deathrun map, and I was wondering three things. One, how do I place a button to activate a trap? Second, how can I restrict weapons, so that players do not get a pistol when they spawn, and third, how do I add traps such as vents, fans, and fire? Please let me know!

      First off, the Source Wiki is a great place to start out with about Source modding and mapping. Interlopers has quite a few tutorials that range for simple to complex.

      And now for the questions:

      1. Buttons: Using the func_button entity (its a brush entity) you can create a "use"-able button. This Interloper's tutorial should help you set it up using the Source I/O system.

      2. Starting equipment: You should be able to use the game_player_equip point entity to setup and override a players starting equipment.

      3. Traps: For that there are quite a few entities. Typically of the env type, here's a link to a list of them.

      Hopefully these sites can get you on your feet in terms of mapping.
