    Hello folks, I'm TheSourceCode (obviously from my username) but also known as Juggernaut on Steam. I'm an old time Dota player, and and even longer time SFM user that dabbles in the arts of game development and digital art. I've always had a special place in my heart for TF2, and have created SFM content for it ever since I was 13. Yes I'm one of those people that made artwork for TF2 more than actually playing it.

    I don't know how I was able to convince myself to learn yet another outdated software by Valve, but I am happy I did (thanks to the amazing community tutorials) and am looking EXTREMELY forward to getting invested with this camp of both veterans and newbies (like me).

    CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FUTURE AMAZEMENT I'M ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE

    Hey, TheSourceCode! Welcome to TF2Maps.net!

    I'm glad you have some experience making art for TF2! There are some amazing resources you should use when making a map.

    1. UEAKCrash's mapping tutorials (
      View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdpTT2pqIVY&list=PL2KT0JL74Qff_c1WbqNi4K5yAmpWAUQlq
      )
    2. The Valve Developer Wiki (https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Team_Fortress_2_Level_Creation)
    3. A Boojum Snark's library (https://tf2maps.net/threads/ultimate-mapping-resource-pack.4674/).
    Mapping may seem daunting at first, but just like Source Filmmaker, it gets easier the more you practice.

    I can't wait to see what you make!

    Thank you both!! Crash was the first tut series I started when I got interested in Hammer. Definitely the sole reason I even have a basic understand of the software. Honestly didn't expect such a warm welcome to early. ^^

    Escape while you still can, hammer will consume you and everything you have ever loved.

    Hey welcome to TF2maps! I hope you enjoy mapping and the community. Feel free to join the community discord and steam group.

    And lastly check out the tutorial portion of the forums, lots of helpful stuff you will find there.
