    Default 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?

    Think about your social life and forget about it completly

    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
