    This map is my first real attempt at learning Hammer.
    I would appreciate suggestions, tips and fixes.
    Also, this is the first time I tried to make a 3D Skybox, and it's screwed.
    If needed, I will provide the .vmf too.

    Thanks! :)

    You'd probably do well to post this in the Showcase instead

    Ah, a good ol' "my first map". Instead of trying to improve this map by listening to us telling you to "make the map better" Start following some tutorials, I quite liked Youme's Guide to Displacement Cliffs as a starter, but sometimes just browsing through the TF2 Mapping-Link Resources can help. Eventually you'll learn a network of skills that can all be incorporated into making your first "Real" Map and then you can look back at this and remember it fondly..

    Thanks.
    I have read a lot, and by a lot I mean a lot of documentation.
    As I made my map, I often used Valve's support, at the developer wiki.

    What I'm asking here is for you guys to help me in making a decent 3D Skybox (I've read all of TF2Maps' tutorials and didn't quite get it) and optimization.

    Well, I'm away from my PC right now so I can't help you with anything specific as I can't check out your progress, try asking the TF2Maps.net chat, they'll be sure to help you out with any and the many questions you'll ask..
