    So uh, yeah. I'm a Brony and a Gamer.
    I like the hats and the ponies, what can I say?
    I plan to become a Mapper, as well.
    So...Hi.

    Well, hi. The community here is very friendly, unless you make a naive map such as an idle map. The VALVe dev wiki is very useful, since a good part of it is edited by some of the members from here. Feel free to make any shitty mpa it the early start.

    Believe me, I will never make an Idle map. I'm actually starting a map right now. I was planning to do some kind of Medieval Payload map. I'm just running into some difficulties such as the Spawnpoints and when I load up the map, I just fall into nothingness. Hopefully I can sort those out.

    Let's learn something. Everyone hates Medieval maps. It's kinda hard to set up them, and your feedback is completely different. You need to make sure that, without the Medieval mode, it turns on to spam fest.
    Also, have you set up spawns with a team set?

    Well, if you fall into nothingness, your problem is probably that your spawns are touching the ground.
    Spawns normally have to be positioned above the ground (say 8 units or whatever) for them to work properly.

    This is actually interesting. I've only seen 2 medieval payload maps, 1 was good, the other was Meh.

    Wait, Everyone hates Medieval mode or Medieval themed maps? I can see why the mode is bad, but the Medieval themed maps that aren't melee only are cool. As for the spawns, I have a Red team spawn set, but no Blu team spawn set. But its like, I have a small map I wanna test out a bit by myself. I start up TF2 and load up the map, and I just fall. No floors or anything. I have 2 rooms set up but they don't appear.

    My plan is to make a Themed map. The mode is dumb.

    The mode is boring by popular vote.

    The theme is decent enough to warrant a couple maps using the medi-evil content. There are several beautiful maps that incorporate it even on a semi basis, such as manor, church or castle maps.
