    Hello world !

    I am Shad,

    I was playing Team Fortress Classic (in team) and I continue now on TF2 in a french team.

    During my studies I did some short exercises as a map for splinter cell, warcraft 3, neverwinter nights or trackmania but I really never done a whole TF2 map from scratch.

    Also, I like to play with some friends, and as it's hard to find 11 mates to play a match with me I think there is a lack of "little" maps allowing to play in 3on3 or 2on2. It's why I would like to start with some little maps for 4 players. I would like to try a map of almost each type (with a main theme).

    First I completely loose time trying to make a new mode (a CTF alternative with 2 defenders and 2 attackers who switch after a certain amount of time) but now I made a 2D layout for and Arena map, and I did a sketchup try with this layout. It showed me a lot of mistakes in proportions and heights.

    My next step is now to make the level in Hammer. I've to find time for this :) But be sure that I ll post as soon I've something decent enough to show.

    (And I am currently doing the same mistake because I want to include some "bumpers", if someone can help me on this one as I never seen bumpers in TF2 custom maps, only launching ramps (entity "push" works bad)).

    Sorry for my english.

    Quite the introduction :D Warcraft 3 and Neverwinter are still on my hard drive, lol. I would highly recommend you start by browsing our Tutorial section; http://forums.tf2maps.net/forumdisplay.php?f=12 And if you still have any questions, there's always someone in the Steam Chat who can help. Welcome to the group!

    Warcraft III was the first game that really got me interested in modding and level design. :)

    I hope you find everything you need here - if you need help, just ask. Enjoy the forum!

    Oh, and vive la TFC!
