    Hey guys. Ive been messing around with the hammer editor and truthfully it makes my head hurt a little. I was wondering if there was some tips and tricks to make things a bit easier, or more or less speed up the process

      So wait, have you already finished a map and need help with publishing it on some site?
      If i'm wrong in the question above, what exactly would you need help with? Is there a specific area/thing you want to create?
      Got any progress/pics to show us?

      I'd be glad to answer any question when it comes to hammer, but if you're just starting out i'd recommend you'd watch a few tutorials for some warmup.
      Here's a good site for hammer tutorials you can look at: http://www.tophattwaffle.com/tutorials/

        I honestly havent started, the hammer editor is a little confusing in comparison to the other map creation tools ive used. I looked on the steam community for creation tutorials but it wasnt much help, ill definantly check out rhe hammer tutorial page you have linked. Thanks for the help

          Tophattwaffle's tutorials are very nice, they helped me get started. You should just follow some of the basic tutorials he has before you really try making a map that you want, that way you can get used to how it works and whatnot. Also, you can look in the the mapping tutorials forum section on our website for some helpful tutorials. Some of them are pretty advanced (blame envio) , but im sure youcould benefit from a few.

              ...or you can have slaves like I do and work as I feel like, like a boss and let others work for you free of pay.

              Don't forget to save your map every 10 minz or so. Hammer likes to crash lots.
