I've finally completed my first map! It's really small though, so I doubt anyone will wanna download it lol. I'll have some screens up later if ya wanna check it out. All it is really is a little arena type thing. It kinda looks like one of those places where those guys with the red flag challenge the bulls :laff: .

Hey, thats not too terrible for a first try. Believe me, I can't even make it to the stage where I compile. Beyond that I can't make more than a box ;P Keep working at it though and eventually you'll be making some really awesome maps with a bit of practice.

For your first map, there isn't really anything I can say wrong about this map besides maybe align the textures a little bit better.
Are you going to keep working on it and adding more stuff?
If you are, then it looks promising. :yes:

Ok, I've just finished editing my map. I changed the ground area inside the arena to a concrete tile type of thing. I have new screens and hope to have them posted soon! :cool:

well ... i dont want to be mean .. but the map is bad ...
ok, its bad to play on, but its a good result for your first mapping try becouse at least you acn create objects and compile a map, and thats more then alot of others can ^^ mapping is just about practicing and alot of testing. if you know the basics of mapping, it isnt very hard to learn new things. and now, since you can handle the basic stuff, i suggest you learn how the engine works (yes, the engine! i know alot of mappers that can make average or good maps, but they dont even know how VIS works or what a leaf is, and that stuff is important to make big good looking maps ^^)
anyways .. good luck with your future maps :)

Good for a first try, but for your second map you should add more details...
