How to create IA and PS Multiplayer maps *update*

Postby Cry-Alex » 19.11.2007, 20:00

Yesterday we already explained to you how to play any custom SP and/or MP map in Crysis. Today we would like to go a step further and provide you with an excellent tutorial that teaches you how to set up an InstantAction and/or PowerStruggle map.

The tutorial has been created by Sven "c4Te" Metzger and is available in thetutorials section already.

In addition it includes a description how to get your map listed ingame so you can launch a server with the map being added to your map pool.

Thanks to all the feedback c4Te has re-worked the tutorial and added some other useful topics. The updated tutorial can be found in the link further below!

You also need Spawn Points for the players. These can be found under Entity / Multiplayer. Spectator Points can be found in the same directory. You need them to define the spawnpoints for spectators. When players are connecting to a server they will always first spawn at this spectator point. If you have no spectator points the spectators will spawn at campos 0,0,0.

What are the settings for the spawn points? There is no information in the tutorial, but it's a really important point...
