    Hello -
    I'm a fairly new mapper and have recently been getting into making maps. Hopefully my first map will be out by the end of the year (no promises, though).

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums, If you havent done so already, Its best that you install ABS TF2 Mapping Rescource Pack, to make mapping alot easier for TF2 mapping purposes.

    If you need testing done on your maps, you can always check the Server Events forum and follow the submition guidelines for gamedays.
    Or you can join our steam group, and join the group chat and ask about an impromptu test.

    Cant wait to see your first project. :)

    I've already installed ABS Mapping Pack. Compared to what my experiences with hammer are before I installed it, I like it a lot. I don't think I could function without the prop libraries.

    tbh I didnt start mapping until I saw UEAKCrash's tutorials and he INSISTED that hammer have the ABS rescource pack, so I never actually looked at what hammer looks like without it.

    Confession time: Part of the reason I insist is because I have always used it, too.

    Every TF2 mapper is shooting him/herself in the foot if he/she doesn't use it.

    Also: welcome new mapper!

    I didn't do much in stock hammer (basic spawnroom, nothing more). Finding models to use is definitely not as easy as the prop libraries.

    It definitely makes things easier.

    Edit: Also, thanks for your tutorials. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for them.

    Thanks!

    Welcome! I know pretty much everyone else has already said it but the ABS Resource Pack is extremely useful.
