    You should really consider doing a koth first. It doesn't matter who you are, everybody here have had their "first project", and 95% of the time, that first project is bad. That includes me.

    ... So why not let the first project me something simple and straightforward at least? ;)

    I suggest a TC map. You will be the one who makes it fun, I can feel it.

    TC? I don't know how.

    EDIT: I'm so stupid. IT's on the wiki. Alright.

    Yes, give him the game mode even experienced mappers have to spend a hideous amount of time to get working.

    Considering I've seen people do this:

    I think pointing him at TC is appropriate.

    We're supposed to be helping him, not flattening his tires. There's only one official TC, and it's horrifyingly huge and complex.

    JustAHorrible:

    I would suggest you try a KOTH. If you really don't want to make a KOTH, try one stage of a A/D or do a really simple, linear 5CP. If you do a payload, try a single-stage A/D payload.

    It's always good to tackle a manageable project so you can learn the ropes and the concepts. Then, be ambitious.

    challenge eh

    do a territorial control where rounds consist of 5 cps instead of 2, the cp layout changes dynamically throughout the round and there are exactly 23 different possible rounds. final rounds must be 3 cp attack defend with each point 1536 units higher than the previous. you have 2 days to finish the map, one more day to port it to cs:go and one more day to go official in both tf2 and cs:go. should you fail on your first try, immediately start over until you succeed. good luck.

    You know, I don't play Counterstrike, nor do I play Modern Warshit.

    I think we should petition Valve to give their level designers Dooms challenge. If they managed to complete it they would get a months paid vacation, Valve time.

    Medieval mode sounds.... too unrealistic for a Payload type.
