You're going to have to add some sort of building or some boxes to duck behind.

The reason this wasn't a problem in Duke Nukem 3D was because bullets traveled pretty damn slow back then and you could generally dodge almost anything.
I could proberbly make a 2nd version with different kinds of cover ^_^

Btw. How did you do the Skybox? Everytime I try to add one it shows nothing in game (I already checked for leaks... nothing!)
Is there a special trick in SiN:E?
The same as above i'll make a standart version and one with mutants.

The skybox is easy ^o^
1) give the sky portion of your level the texture "skybox"
2) in the map properties (Map -> Map Properties) you set the name of the sky you want to use (use the texture browser with the filter name "skybox" to list them all). I used "sky_finale".

The following are for HL2 but it's easy to adapt to Sin Ep ^_^

3D Buzz has training videos for HL2 (I learned to make maps for UT2k4 from that site ^_^), but you need to register to download (it's free)

Some other good tutorial sites:

Babes, Bullets, Bombs. DAMN I love this job!
