    Hello everyone. I'm Owl, and I just recently decided to become a map-maker. I've been wanting to do mapping for a long time, because I've always wanted to contribute something to the TF2 community.

    Many times I've tried to get into mapping, but I couldn't find any good guides for a long time. Thanks to Crash and his tutorial videos, I've finally understood the basic principles of working with Hammer, and thus I've spent this whole week mapping and eventually I made a functioning map. It still requires some tweaking, but I hope to release it in the upcoming days.

    I just hope that I won't cause any trouble in your community. Anyways, thank you for reading this, and have a pleasant time of day in your region.

    Also I feel a need to apologise for any typos or spelling errors in my text, since I'm not a native english-speaker.

    Hi! I assume crash talks about this, but be sure to get that map tested in one of our imps, it's looking really good!

    edit: p.s, by all accounts Crash's tutorials are great, but afaik the series is still being worked on. Check out tophattwaffle's tutorials for more general hammer tips if you find you get stuck on something he's not covered yet :)

    That's probably the nicest introduction I've ever seen.

    Had TF2 Mapping skyrocketed because of Crash's videos?
