I just wanted to say hello and do the introduction thing.. first post! A little about myself: I used to primarily play Day of Defeat Source back when it was relatively new, and I created two full maps for the game, one which saw two beta community releases (dod_harvest) and another that never saw the light of day. The latter I was quite proud of and nearly completed, but due to that thing I call "life", I abandoned it. I returned to mapping briefly for an updated release of harvest, but since late 2007 (right around the time I started playing TF2) I had dropped mapping completely. So as you might have guessed I'm no stranger to Hammer, but I am new to the design theory, entities and other things unique to TF2 mapping. I'm a big fan of TF2, and I've always said that the day I get back into mapping, I'd do something for TF2... so here I am! I have to admit, I am wildly excited about this community because I really desired something similar to this during my DoD mapping days. I found it in places... but this community just seems so thorough and supportive that it actually makes me excited to start mapping again. Anyway, hello again! I look forward to getting back at it!
