    Welcome to the site Ashley!.

    Heh you play sometimes and want to try to make a map? No offense but getting to learn hammer isn't a simple thing and you gotta invest some time into it.

    There are plenty of tutorials on the site as well as in my signature. Also there is a tf2maps steam chat you can link from the front page here along with the steam group.

    Always a bunch of us in there willing to help out!

    welcome, ashley!

    as someone very recently in your position, i highly recommend your first stop be to the SDK Reference - Level Design page, where you'll find some excellent tutorials on making your first map.

    from there, you can hit some of the tf2 tutorials, and practice some of the basics. once you have those down, you can get down to designing your map.

    best of luck!

    Sup, welcome. You are in the right place to learn to map, we are (for the most part) a loving and helping community. But, like he said, don't make orange maps. :p
