How to create a map?

Postby Eazy-E on Thu Dec 22, 2011 8:50 am

Hello everybody

I have some great ideas for maps, but i dont know how to create a race map :(

can anyone teach me the basics things to create a map that contains only checkpoints, change cars, nitro and keys to fix the car?

if you know a youtube video and you pass me, it would be great!

thanks in advance!!!

Did you try looking this up, as the mta website should have instructions

which editor are you using, mta race, or the one on the current mta

its hard to explain this MTA Editor with words. I could also only create a screenshot-tutorial for you.

But i want to say, that i found out how it works without Tutorial. Just "trial and error". Simply click through the menus and test everything you find.

When i began using the editor, at first i placed the objects and and builded up my idea. Without CPs, without spawn points. After that, i clicked EVERYTHING which couldn't hide from me. The stupid thing was, the button i searched for WAS hiding from me!! :lol:

Oh and remember to save the map with a name without spaces, coz else some settings don't save.
Like ghostmode and respawntimer.
That kept me busy for a while. :evilgrin:
