    Under the downloads tab of the forum, click add to upload your map (it has to be compressed)

    Click "New Thread" in the map workshop to create a thread :D

    congratulations on your first map!

    Ok next question, how to compress?
    Does it simply mean putting all the versions (.bsp and so on) into 1 .zip?

    you only need the .bsp, which you can find in steam/common/teamfortress2/tf/maps (i think)

    Edit: sorry, i'm tired after the 72 hour, do what Tyler said

    I'll be curious to check out your map and perhaps give some hints and feedback :)
