Hello all. So yesterday I downloaded the hammer mapping tool for TF2 and thought I would try and figure some stuff out. I am VERY inexperienced at this sort of stuff, but I am a programmer by trade and education, but I have NEVER made such a map as this game uses. I have done some Command and Conquer maps, some old school Sim City maps and if you remember that far back, Sim Earth. I never took any classes in college for Graphics design, even though there is actually a class there for game design that uses the Valve Engine for their designs. I wish I would have taken it, but I guess I must teach myself. Anyway, I hope to learn, and of course have fun.
