    hi there guys, i'm starting to get into making maps for TF2, i used to dabble with unreal tournament maps (original UT) they weren't nothing special, or deep..just something i like to do when i'm bored..

    I usually get things with editor programs pretty easily, tho sometimes with more of the advanced stuff I gotta have it explained pretty bluntly and thoroughly, (as in like "what if this, and what if that, complete reassurance" learning).....

    but the simple things like seeing how somebody did something in a video and I cannot do it like they did, and they did not explain it..i go mad :mad:

    this is my first time entering a community for map making, so i'm excited to learn, and exchange ideas.
