    Hi all.

    I wanted to ask to good mapmakers, where have you learned to make good maps?

    Are there any tutorials you feel to suggest me?
    I'm not completely strange to Hammer, since I can do basic things (like creating two rooms, and joining them), but I've never gone further.

    Thanks to everyone that bothers posting.

    Also, resources outside TF2maps.net:

    http://www.interlopers.net/tutorials/

    http://www.interlopers.net/articles/what-is-level-design

    This one is kind of out dated, it contains old articles for pre-source Hammer in addition to the source version of Hammer we use now:

    http://www.snarkpit.net/snarkpower/articles

    Check out the Source "wiki" at the VDC site, you can find information on all sorts of entities here:

    http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Main_Page

    This place is full of the most knowledgable individuals i've met on the Source Engine:

    http://www.chatbear.com/unity2/4991/unityhome?v=flatold&g=21

    Those are basically.. probably the most important resources i can think of off the top of my head. It should all be in the thread YM linked you as well, just figured this would help save you reading through all that information for what might or might not be relavent to what you need.

    edit: Plus you just posted in our tutorial section >.>
