Hey! I'm new to this forum. I have heard good things about you guys and thought I would say whats up! I'm new to the mapping world, typically using map generators to do my work, but I'm considering starting to do things myself. I don't have a lot of talent (Namely not having enough patience to build a map by hand.) But I am willing to learn, and I heard you guys are the best! Just wanted to say hey, and I'll see you around the forum. :D
Welcome to the Guild Cubby4ever! You've come to the right place to learn. Spend some time browsing the tutorials section, that's a great place to begin. Then, when you start working your way through a tutorial, post up a WIP and ask for criticism. You can pick up on new tips and techniques by soliciting advice from seasoned mappers.
