    I own a gaming community and I'm looking to hire a map-maker to build at least one and possible two TF2 maps for me. I will pay a reasonable price in US dollars for the work. The first map will be a fun map for gathering achievements, idling and general fun gameplay. It's not for major competitive play.

    Qualifications sought in map-maker:

    - Must be friendly and easy to deal with
    - Must be able to complete the map(s) within a reasonable and agreeable amount of time
    - Must be detailed and willing to work well with others to accomplish the work
    - Must speak and write well in English
    - Must be willing to make changes to the map during beta-testing so it's done to my satisfaction
    - References and sample work required

    If you're interested, please reply and let me know.

    Thank you,
    Mike Vail

    I could take a jab at this, add me on steam to discuss the details or just PM me, either works. I do want to help out, and am willing to help you.

    Edit: at the time of posting the top part of this, I didn't take into account the chance that the requester may not have enough time to make his own map or the skills to do so, thus requiring a skilled mapmaker to make a map for him. I'm sorry for not making this clear beforehand, and not having thought about that before posting.

    Some people might not have the time to learn, really. Especially if you have a day job + admin a server.

    I've done previous commissions in the past if you'd like to PM and discuss what you're looking for.

    You know, you don't need to buy a car, you could just learn how to make them yourself. You'd be able to customize it and you'll be much better with it in the end.

    Thanks guys, I considered learning it but have heard it's very time-consuming. Time is the one thing I have very little of. I work 3 jobs including managing my own business and a fulltime government job, I'm a dad and I manage a community. As much as I'd love to take learning it on, I just don't think I'd have the time to take on another thing. But I agree, doing it myself would be ideal. Thanks for the feedback!

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I have found a couple people to work with. I'm looking forward to making some cool maps with them. I hope to eventually learn how to do mapping as well. In the meantime, take care and thanks again!

    Jokes aside, while day-to-day experienced use of Hammer will reveal a lot of flaws, Hammer actually is one of the most accessible level design tools out there.
