    Lightbulb Tutorials: Objects: The ladder

    How to make a ladder?



    The most asked question of all mapping issues, and its so simple anyone can make one, remember to make this a prefab once youve done with so that you have a backup of the original.

    (1) Make a block with the following dimensions:-
    • 32 units wide
    • 120 units high (Height)
    • 4 units thick (depth)



    (2) Make a copy of this block and place it a side for now.

    (3) Apply the ladder texture you want, then make the block into an func_wall now set these properties:-
    • Render Fx = Normal
    • Render Mode = Solid
    • Fx Amount = 255


    (4) Now with the other block apply the AAA texture to it and place it infront of the ladder texture, now make this block a func_ladder




    Tip:
    To make a non texture based ladder simply make your ladder and texture it accordingly from above, then make a copy of it etc. Also you can place a clip brush of the same size and place it between the illusion brush and the func_ladder and set the ladder texture block as a func_illusionary, this enables player to shoot through the ladder at certain points.

    I prefer making the func_ladder brush a bit narrower and lower than the func_wall brush is, so the ladder won't bug on the top and players can't climb on the sides of it. However, this makes it a bit harder for the players to catch the ladder when trying to go down using it.
