    Most mappers (Except the very angry Sajak) are or will be glad to help you. If you want, add me, I might not be on all the time or may be busy, but when I can I would be glad to help, provided you have Team Viewer.

              Hello there, glad to have another mapper aboard.
              Since you're new to this i suggest you learn the mere basics through these tutorials: http://www.tophattwaffle.com/tutorials/ (edit - eey, mario got it first)
              Start by making some test maps, make yourself comfortable within hammer itself, patience is the key.

              Once you feel ready, go ahead and make whatever you feel like doing, ZE? ZM? MG? It's all up to you. Don't be too hard on yourself though, i'd suggest starting off with something simple.
              If you stumble upon any issue after you've gotten into the mapping basics, feel free to ask me/any other willing mappers for help and we'll surely help you out/give advice about the issue.
              I'll head off for now, getting some sleep.

              Good luck and god speed.

                What I did was some stupid bullshit firstupfront a whole month and I started on my first zm firewater getting to know the basics of hammer. My suggestion is don't give up like I did for a while but keep trying and watch more videos. Zm is a good start. Good luck.

                  If you don't know anything about hammer at this moment, I also suggest (besides tophatwaffle) this one: https://sites.google.com/site/renshdtutorials/home/general-hammer/beginner

                  I used it before I started mapping before the summer holidays and it gets you through the basics very well. There's only 1 or 2 things you'll be doing differently later on. If you watch/do all the tutorials you'll have your very own map to play in at the end. Actually if it wasn't for internship I probably would've finished the map I was working on by now.

                  The only thing the provided link doesn't teach you about is all that fancy stuff like pushing buttons and console commands etc. but then again, those aren't basics.

                    Nice find. My only suggestion to add is use the nodraw texture when building, then use the face edit sheet to 'paint' brush faces.

                    Thanks for the advice guys!

                    I am also interested in designing a map myself or participating in a project. I know nothing of how to do it so I am sure the websites posted earlier will be resourceful. Maybe I will get to join the ranks of the mappers in the future and be a part of what makes PF so great.

                      If I'm not doing anything during the winter semester, I'll help you out Joshy. Just get to know some basics from TopHattWaffles site. Key is to experiment and have patience.

                          Fuck you kids and ur secrets. They piss people off, and their only fun for those that know them. Once they become well known, then no one cares and they're useless.
