Mapping guide


How to setup

1. Go to Steam Library > Tools and download Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer

Singleplayer could work too but I tried it with Multiplayer so we roll with that!

2. Go to $SteamDir\steamapps\common\Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer\bin and open hammer.exe.

You better pin that file because you will need it everytime.

3. Select Half-Life 2: Deathmatch' as game configuration to use.

Till someone knows how to stop getting that message everytime you open hammer. You have to get used to it.

4. Select Tools > Options and put your settings like this:

You can download the ios.fgd at iosoccer.fgd or copy from the IOSoccer directory ($SteamDir\steamapps\sourcemods\iosoccer) and move it to $SteamDir\steamapps\common\Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer\bin.

Note: ‘Gamedata files’ are basically fgd files. You will need to add ios.fgd.

5. Copy all the materials and models folders from IOSoccer to $SteamDirSteam\steamapps\common\Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer\hl2mp

Restart hammer after you done that.

You should be ready to go now!

General Notes

  • For a different size, we recommend that the length / width scale should be around 1.55
  • Use SDK 2013’s Hammer as it has more features
