    Hi evrybody,
    I'm really noob in source map making. But I really want to learn. I started to use Hammer and it look quit easy. I will present my future creation.

    Just a liitle noob question : theme pack are free to use ? If I use it, I probably have some people to motice or this kind of thing ?

    Cheers,
    Paulozz

    Hey there.

    Theme packs are free to use, yes. Though it does help to credit the creator.

    Welcome to the forums!

    And to add what Raffi said, when you give credit to say something from the construction pack just say "Thanks to the construction pack team for the ____" and whatever you use. DOn't need to specifically give the author.

    Hi,
    My 1rst presentation was short, so I'll try to do better now.

    I'm a french guy of 27, living near Paris. I work as gameplay programmer, and I want to increase my Level Design capability ... and TF2 is actually my favourite game.
    I do some mapping when I was young with UT, but it wasvery different. For the moment Hammer is a pleasure. Some friends told me it is old and featureless compare to other recent editor, however I don't feel it at all.

    Sone, I'm glad to meet you community.

    And to finish a lettle question. How much time it take to you to do a correct beta version of a map ? And how much time do you think it take for a noob ?

    You can go through many beta updates and alpha updates. It depends on what map you're making (arena and koth maps will have less beta versions than a tc map).
