    I have been loitering around this site for a while and have been putting of joining for a while. I decided to join due to how helpful this site is and how well knit the community is as well as the respect you all show for each other, but most of all i decided to start on my first major mapping project which will be a koth map.

    Thanks in advance for the warm welcome...

    You're Welcome in advance for my Warm Welcome.

    My advice is to either: Take a lot of time on your first map or, not release it. From the sounds of it you've spent time in hammer before (I'd love to see any projects you've done) but I thought I had too when I first joined this Community with the Intent of making my first "real" map, now, I'm considering re doing it for overall flaws and mistakes. I learned a lot from that, and so I encourage realizing that, not to discourage you from making or releasing maps, only to encourage you to make wise ones.

    So, once again, Welcome!

    I would like to show you but most of them have been experiments in optimization, detailing, entities and lighting and removed from my hdd as soon as i didn't need them. I have spent many months in hammer just experimenting and i guess in all technicality it wouldn't be my first map if you consider a couple rooms and a capture point or two.

    That's great! Because those experiments usually end up being what New Mappers release :p I like the part about many months. So get out there and start refining!

    First thing I did too :p Also, one last thing, we've just finished the Submitting Entry stage of our 8th Mapping contest, and it's a big 'un. I suggest you Download a couple of those maps to get a feel and look at some truly talented mapper's work, and.. y'know review them. We can never have enough Constructive Criticism in this place..
