Hey everyone, I found this forum cuz I asked a question about returning the intelligence when someone falls in to a pit of death a la Quake 3, and someone linked me to a thread here. I've been mapping for a long time now, but I still suck. I'm just a novice mapper, I've never had much success at getting people to play my maps but I enjoy it all the same. I started out mapping with Quake 3, then I moved on to Battlefield 1942. God what a horrible mapping program that was, going from Radiant to that? Yikes. Anyway, I moved on to TF2 and am happy that Hammer doesn't suck as bad as the BF1942 mapper, though it's still not as good as Radiant in my opinion. Currently I'm working on a TF2 Remake of the Dueling Keeps map from Quake 3. I've got most of the principal work done, but I'm having trouble getting the lighting right as I've pretty much always sucked at lighting. I put the lights in the wrong places and end up getting big bright spots on my walls, and can never figure out where to put them to get rid of them. Anyway, just wanted to say hello. Hopefully you guys don't mind n00b questions, cuz I'll have a bunch.
