Introduction and goals of the tutorial
This is a guide for making a functional map of four objectives (Escort MCP, construct bridge, hack shield, destroy device) for ETQW. Elements of polish such as ambient audio and environment effects will be covered in the advanced tutorials. This 'bare bones' map has already been put together and can be referred to at anytime if some chapters get a little confusing. Simply open maps/sdk/etqwmap.world and unhide the editor groups. The editor groups are named according to the chapter title and name, so if you found 8. creating a constructible bridge a little confusing, unhide the editor group called 08 - Constructible bridge to check it out.
If your using this guide to make your own map you will obviously want to name your assets and materials etc differently to etqwmap. You will also want to refer to the following guides; Terrain and Creating a megatexture as the map we put together uses the area22 megatexture and has a flat terrain mesh.
