I am currently confused by the various of different guides and links in this section of the forum.
I am interested in making a map, if not several maps, for Natural-Selection. I've made maps for FLF in the past, though unofficial, same for the HL2 modification called L.A. so I'm pretty used to making "time/*-distance"- based maps. And since there is no weather and outer lighting to be made in NS, it should be easier for me, since that's my weak side in level design (lighting). But it has been years since I've actually been anywhere near the old hammer for HL1, I'm so far only customed with Steam's version of hammer and made series of cave/mountain maps there.
At first I downloaded Zoners latest tools, but I quickly figured out that was wrong. I just installed Steam's version of Hammer through Source, and quickly figured out that was wrong too. I cannot find Merl's whatever tools, neither can I find the compiler or the extra tools + extra tools, + the extra tools for the extra tools on top of the extra tools you need to use the extra tool's tools (puke). ... I edited this part; just to clarify, I'm not saying that people who made the guides didn't do a good job, just that I'm very confused, and that I may have the worst attention span ever.
Could anyone refer me to a working guide, with working links? And if you can, thank you in advance.
