This tutorial has been set up to help would-be mappers looking for a
step-by-step guide from the beginning. It assumes the reader has no idea
how to use GtkRadiant and knows nothing about scripting and the like.
These pages were originally created for members of the TibeT clan and regular
players on the TibeT servers, but anyone finding this tutorial is welcome to use
I don't claim to know everything about mapping but I've learnt enough from various
sources to be able to make maps
of reasonable complexity. I've had a
number of people asking various mapping questions and I thought it was a better
idea to explain it all once to anyone interested.
The tutorial is incomplete but I continue to add pages as I get the time.
Be aware that the subject is very large so there's a lot to explain; and
that to make a decent fair-sized map can easily take over 200 hours, so with this as a
hobby you need a lot of patience and spare time, but at least the tools to do
the job are free. The best maps out there might have taken their authors
18 months to create, depending on how much free time they had.
Disclaimer: I may be wrong in my understanding of any aspect of the
subject, but hey, I'm doing my best :)
