    learning to map

    Here is a question for mappers out there. I want to really try to sink my teeth into mapping becasue i have some really great ideas, but im having a BEAR of a time trying to learn the editor. What do you guys think is the best way to learn? By just playing with the different tools till i get what they do and go from there or by following tuturals? All the tuturals i seem to find are really advanced and i guess im wanting to build a row boat before i build that titanic if you know what i mean. Can anyone give me some feed back on how you learned to really jump in and create the maps you do?

    J/k

    Do not give up! keep going!

    Ask a lot of questions.

    Hang around mapping fourms a lot.

    look at many many maps, In game and in the editor.

    Start of by using ideas from other people work and go from that.

    Good luck
