Howdy. I haven't done much mapping since the Doom ][ days, but TF2 has totally captured me. I've been harvesting clues from these forums and the Valve ones for the last few weeks, and I finally signed up because I have a few questions to ask (in other threads). Thanks to all posters of tutorials and other useful information! I also go by Gearloose in-game and I don't frequent any particular servers - I just go where the ping is low and the maps are fun. My favorite Valve maps are Hydro, Dustbowl and Gravel Pit - I don't like Well and 2Fort much at all. There are a few non-Valve maps that are really terrific, but I can't recall their names at the moment. See you in the forums!
