Hey all, planning on doing a Half-Life mapping tutorial series on Youtube. There's not a whole lot of youtube content for half-life mapping, so I figured why not throw my hat into the ring. I've got friends who want to get into mapping and there's no really convenient, quick-paced videos to get them straight into it like there are for Source or other programs.

So far I've got 2 videos with more in the works.

The First Tutorial Video
If you guys have any advice for making these tutorials better/what topics would benefit from having video coverage, lemme know. As I make them, I'll post them in this thread to keep track of them.

Dr. Rosenberg finally getting the credit he deserves. Well done, sir.

And the mapping video is excellent as well. Earned a sub so I can watch the tutorial videos as they come out.

Yeah it will be good to see this stuff, I'm always interested to see other peoples methods in how they produce HL maps. Keep it up!

These are entertaining as well as being informative. I already disagree with some of the tools you recommended, but you know what? Who asked? :P

Also big thumbs up for Nobuo Uematsu every time.

Haha, you are entertaining to watch man.
The first video was weird, on the level of "Uriel's Machine" interpretations of historical facts. It establishes wild hypotheses and makes them feel real through elaborate arguments. That's just my impression, I never delved deep into the side stories beyond the original Half-Life series, so I'm not sure. This was kinda my reaction.

In the second video you strike me as a young Schwarzenegger lookalike.

I may be an old fart too, but I have to build on what you said about the community being on Discord nowadays. I think It's a shame that alternative platforms are siphoning the activity. The TWHL site slowly become just a shrine to which people come to remind themselves of the roots of the community.

Yeah, I realized after the fact that I forgot about Solokiller's model viewer. I included a note about that in the description and used that instead.

Otherwise, I think my choices are alright.

Thanks king

Such is my specialty. you should see the political "debates" I spark in the discord.

Maybe it is, but at the end of the day it's still the same people coming together. If anything, Discord has made the community feel alot more active and alive in my opinion. The days of online forums being popular might be passing, it's so much easier just to chat live in real time.
