    My name is Beelzebuzz, and I proudly state that I have NO idea how to make a friggin' hat, nevermind an entire Hat Factory.

    Haha! Non-humor!

    Hence why I'm going to start trying 'n learning, to gain a few more skills in life, have fun, improve myself as a human being, 'n all that jazz. In real life, I'm an inspiring writer, mostly fantasy, dabbling a bit in the dark arts of arts!
    I decided to start making TF2 maps because
    -I absolutely LOVE the aesthetic of the maps
    -I've always been a fan of map-making in the first place, so designing a map on paper is easy for me. Balancing it, of course, a fun challenge.
    - Life is stressful right now, and I hope map-making can ease my mind from it a bit, until the tumultuous typhoon in my mind clears into a serene not-typhoon.

    In the distant future that I start producing fully-finshed maps, I'll mostly focus on ideas you don't see too often in the TF2 community, map-wide shout outs (Wizard of Oz payloads, yaddah-yaddah), and something that people can enjoy as a whole.

    May everyone have a wondrous life, and that I can make a map that at least one person may enjoy- I sure know I'll enjoy makin' it!

    Fantasy stories might be a bit hard to squeeze into a multiplayer FPS map, but having a creative mind can definitely help with detailing and layout designs. Here's a good place for mapping youtube tutorials by the way.

    Lookin forward to see what you make.

    I was just using that 'Wizard of Oz' as an idea, and if I did, the reference won't distract from the atmosphere of the level; starts at small blue work area, leading up to a large green, highly explosive construction zone, yaddah-ya. It's still be plausible as a real place in the TF2 world, but still more as a joke? I might make that as my first, to get the idea across better than I can word it?

    !gf start of the yellow brick road is too curvy; easy for new players to get lost
    !fb Scarecrow bots are super dumb - they stop moving in the poppy area
    !gf Winged monkeys OP
    !fb I wished for a heart but all the Wizard of Mann Co gave me was a dumb hat.
