That tutorial reads like it was written by a starving Ethiopian boy that was just beaten half to death with an Amharic-English dictionary...

You can attach the map, so we will be able to help you with textures and so on.

Ok, thanks. I think I will have to replace all textures by hand.

Check the 'texture overview' tool for this.

Ok, done. I have the compiled .bsp and made a maps.ufo file. Can somebody tell me how to test the map ingame? I try to load the "suburb" skirmish but the screen just becomes black.

press ` to get in-game console, and write /map day name_of_map_without_extension. (or, to be correct — path to the map from base/maps

The first link did not work for me. Please give the .map file rather than the .bsp as a simple (compressed) attachement to the post.

The way you did the map definition, it should give you the option to select 'mastermap' in the skirmish menu. This will start the '/base/maps/suburb.bsp'.
You can find some more information about the maps.ufo here.

rather use shift+esc to open the console as ` isn't portable

Ok, here's the zipped .map. The map appears in "skirmish" mode, but as soon as I try to load it the game either crashes or gives me a blank screen. Please, stop giving me link to that tutorial, it's horribly useless.

********************
ERROR: Game Error: No spawnpoints for team 1
********************

this is the error that appears on the game console after loading the map (the shift+esc thing i said in my previous post)

so just add some spawnpoints for your soldiers and you are ready to go.

My fault, I have added some handmade textures for the signs (the sign-forsaleblack and sign-privateblack). Ufo2map gave me no error signals, and I have put eight player_start entities. Screenshot included.

info_player_start is for multiplayer - place info_human_start as ShipIt said

you can get an overview about the available entities here

Right, I added some human_start and it works... bad! There are some strange graphic glitches! However, the map works fine, the aliens are popping out of the buildings giving some nasty ambushes. Now, I will "lower" everything one level and try to fix the glitches. Thanks for your help and support, see you later.
