hi everyone. new to the forum and new to mapping. immortal was kind enough to invite me while overhearing me talking about venturing into mapping while playing tf2. so a special thanks to immortal for introducing me here. i've seen many links to this site from the developers' wiki, so credit to you all for running somethign thats gotten a lot of recognition. i hope i can tap in on the fun as well and if i get a hang of it perhaps throw in a decent map as well. the little background that might have any signifigance here is that im an architect, looking for a creative outlet as it can get pretty restrictive doing my type of work. i got some decent autocad, 3dsmax, and photoshop experience, which i hope will help me get a grip on modding when im done trying to master mapping for tf2. thats it. hope you all dont mind my million questions and im pretty excited to be part of a community dedicated to the exact thing im exploring.
