Hey there mappers. I just started fooling around with hammer a few days ago and have been progressing a lot faster than I thought I would. I didn't even think I'd bother to go any further than creating a room honestly, but the basics aren't as hard as they may seem I suppose. I don't often go on forums, and there are so many different subsections I wasn't sure where to start, so I decided what better place than an introduction? So as I've said, I just started mapping a few days ago after thinking of what I haven't seen done for arena maps. I play a lot of Randomizer Arena, and the owner there recently doubled the available maps to play on. However, a lot of them lack water. So that's where I got my idea for a river separated foresty map. Now that I've got the intro out of the way, I'd like to ask where I should go to ask for help in executing design theories? I understand how to make most of the map, but I'm having trouble understanding how to go about the gimmick(s) of the map. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to becoming a member of this community.
