Requesting a GZDoom Builder tutor

Recommended Posts

I've been interested in learning how to make maps for a long time. I know how to make rooms, but even something as simple as a door is difficult to do. Would any of you kind folks be willing to spend some time mentoring me in the ways of mapping? I'll use whatever method of contact you prefer. Whether it's Skype, Line, Teamviewer, it doesn't matter to me.

I've actually watched them all to completion. The issue is with the way my brain learns. I learn best through interaction. I can watch his videos all day, but the information doesn't stay the same way it would through talking to an actual person giving me lessons. I hope that doesn't sound too stupid.

Nah, I know what you mean. Try taking a look at other people's work then, that might give you an idea as to how some facets work. I don't use GZDoomBuilder myself, so I can only help you so much.

There is a button that makes you a door automatically in gzdoom builder.

You just select a sector where you want your door and press the button ("make a door from selection"), you need to be in sector mode to see it and it located next to brightness gradient button.

this could be fun! I don't know though to what extent I would be able to commit to anything, but I suppose you never know. what all are you looking for, specifically, and when (like time of day, day of week, etc.)? I would love to be able to help, but I wouldn't want to make any promises that I can't keep in terms of length of time, availability, and all that jazz

Well, in general I'm hoping to learn how to make enjoyable and balanced maps. More specifically, I want to learn exactly what I can do with at least GZ/Doombuilder and Slade and become proficient in their usage. I also would like to learn how to script in ACS and other languages, though the map building skills obviously come first. As for my times that are available, I graduated from high school TODAY, so I'm extremely free for the next few months. I'm typically awake by 9:30 AM EST and usually go to sleep around 11 pm or midnight.

hmm ok. this is pretty short notice then haha but would you be available tomorrow around 430 or 5 pm est? I'd do earlier but I have a commitment before that. sall good if that's not a good time for you though. if that's the case, then the day after, Thursday, I think I'll be free earlier in the day! no pressure of course, but ya if you'd be down I would be! not sure how available I'd be free next week, and the week after I'll definitely be much less available, but ya lemme know. I'll log back in tomorrow morning and see, so just post here or pm me if you want to figure something out
