Yeah I'm completely new to everything regarding mapping, modeling you name I don't know what it is.:( I saw the sticky on files needed to map, but I don't know what they do.

So could someone who has alot of patience walk me through this whole mapping thing please. I know it's alot to ask but I'm very willing to learn seeing as how DoD is my life.:rolleyes:

Reading through FAQ as I type, will still need help, so i'll ask as I go along

im new to this also been into it almost 3 weeks now

hammer is scarey lookin at first LOL

anyway check out this link and dl the mapping videos

there what got me started the guy goes through some basic stuff youll need to know for most any map

hes a little hard to unserstand sometimes(maybe english isnt his native language i dont know not making fun of him)

in a few places he gets goin a little fast but all you do is rewind it and watch it again

hope this helps

something you might like to know before you jump right in and get something nice going and crash it accidentally without saving a lot of progress;

don't zoom in incredibly close even if you want to, because for some reason if you try to move around after zooming in very very very close it crashes hammer.

i would recommend the martymouse (i think thats it, deffinitely somehitng about a mouse) link in the tutorials thread stickied up top. it got me started and mapping in about a day.
