    So I have a very rudimentary understanding of areaportals and hint nodes and such, and their applications in TF2 mapping, but for the most part they're completely alien to me. Could someone point me to a tutorial on these, or maybe write one for the tutorials section here?

    I wrote a guide on areaportals here with some actual real-life examples.

    The tutorial forum isn't too long and there's only like 20 threads per page. Pretty easy to thumb through I think

    I'd also advise always using Google rather than a forum search, by the way, unless you have to search in a restricted forum. Just use site:tf2maps.net your search terms and it's a lot better 100% of the time
