Softwares / Hammer Editor

Hammer (Worldcraft a long time ago) is the level editor of Gold engine (Half-Life and its mods), and for Source (Half-Life 2, TF2, and mods).

My skills

  • Creating level geometries: Mesh, textures...
  • Placing assets
  • Creating complex scripts: events, cinematics...

Task: Stargate Command Map

Created for the project: Stargate TC on 2005 as a personal project - Skill: Level Design
Softwares: Hammer Editor
On Stargate TC, I was in charge of building the most important map, the SGC. More like a dressed environment than a game level, the map had to be used many times in the one player game to show cinematics, necessary for the game storytelling: briefing, dialogues more or less important...


I created the basic shape of the map at first. I tried to keep the true organization and the same size, as much as possible. By searching meticulously on the Internet, I ended up finding the SGC plans made in Vancouver studios.

Next, I looked for a lot of snapshots taken by tourists who visited the film sudio set. By the way, I was more accurate.


To get information allowed me to create a level much closer to the series, more realistic as you can see on the pictures below.

I was compelled to erase some details, Gold, the Half-Life engine, can't handle too many models. You can notice that chevrons are green on this stargate.


Made on Half-Life, the map had to seam like the true SGC in the show. I used a lot of references to get the details.
Work: I created the map, level building and environnement.
