    Hey there.

    So I think you know me, Lamar.
    I was working on some mapping and I decided to share it with y'all.
    I hope you like it, and don't forget something, i'm taking requests.
    Like if you want some mapping for your faction etc.. and you want it to be IG, you get it from me and donate for it to the server to get it implemented.

    Here's some of my mappings.

    Pizza Stacks.

    What Karol said was not wrong but he said it completely wrong. Household objects are ussaully not found outdoors, I suggest when you are mapping a back alley to keep it simple. A bench, a few gang tags, etc...

    Remember you are in the ghetto, some stuff may be knocked over, trash is probably all over the place, and there is probably a game of some sorts (that is ussauly not a pool table) I would suggest a basketball hoop mounted to the business wall.

    Nice one Lamar!
    Ignore negative people. They feed on your reaction and if they see you being affected by what they do/say, they'll keep doing it.

    Don't worry Caligiuri, and thanks.
    By the way, Thadd.
    I did it to improve roleplay, nothing more, nothing less.
    Cash is like when we go there, we drop our cash there because ofcourse that alley will be used in deals, etc.
    And there's trash already, check the first SS you will see it in the start of the alley.
    The couch is not that negative bro, people use that like this in some ghetto streets.
    And the pool table is the same, we just use these to increase roleplay, nonetheless.

    The mapping is fine the way it is, would I agree with parts? Yes and no but I'm not the mapper you are so you do what you want in your map.

    The couch is fine, along with the pool table, it's up to you to put what you want in your mapping. I gave you suggestions on what I would do to give it a more realistic feel.

    Just remember when your mapping function is always good but aesthetic's is what most poeple look for. Finding the balance depending on your map is what will make your map look the best.

    E: From the screen shot you may want to edit the radiator (floating and clipping into the wall)
    The one cash bag as the bottom is clipped NoDraw

    I'd just go through and make sure nothing is floating, even a little because that can make a map look bad depending on the person looking at it

    Why it is so hard to understand that I started mapping a week ago I think, and all these made in 1 day, yeah I will use your ideas and that but y'all need to chill, a newcomer to mapping and did some things, atleast give him a good feedback than going with a edit edit edit edit the fuck.

    I'm sorry if you took my suggestions with any type of hostility. I do not know if you have heard of the phrase, "It's three times harder to unlearn something." All I am trying to do is help you understand the fundamentals of a map so that you do not get incorrect information or ideas.

    Yes, what you have started is good, but I'm am not going to treat you like my baby sister and tell you everything you do is perfect. Everything I do is not perfect and suggestions are always a good thing.

    My last topic, something you should really understand before starting to map anything. Whether it is Editor, Hammer by Valve etc... is critisism. It is a good thing (most of the time anyway). If someone is plain disrespectful ignore them but if someone is trying to help you, take it because you never know when the next set of hands will come by.

    Finally, congrats, it's great you are starting to map and if you ever have questions feel free to PM myself or anthoer mapper. :)

    No problems lol, and it was to Karol because he came into insulting and shit, you're a great mapper indeed and i'm using all these feedbacks on the mapping project i'm working on right now.
