    I'm really confused on where I should be looking first on how to get started in Hammer (basics, like how to create actual 3D shapes instead of boxes on a grid) and stuff like that. I know I should use the search bar, but I've had no luck finding what I need. I'm really new to this.

    The Political Gamer has a great resource thread that lives up to it's name: Useful Information for New Mappers

    For other questions/ advice, the TF2Maps chat is a great go to. Follow tutorials, experiment, and generally, don't release your "My First Map" :p

    I just wound up searching YouTube for "Hammer tutorial"; as with many tools, there's a ton of how-to videos for beginners on there.
