[TUTORIALS] A Complete List of

Post by rSnake » 21 Jan 2013, 09:48

The idea to create this thread was in my mind for a long, long time. From now on, instead of several pinned tutorials, we're going to have just one where all of the mapping related tuts(and not only) will be listed by category and linked. Hopefully more threads with useful information will show up this year. In my spare time im going to write several tutorials because... well, there is always a chance to encourage more people to try out the Hammer editor and the ones already involved in the mapping business could learn some neat tricks aswell. Below, the list as it is for now. Any suggestions & ideas will be appreciated!

We're kinda missing a solid guide to TFC's goalsystem. For this I nominate rSnake.

That's a pretty good tut andy, I have one as well:

While it's for TF, it shares many aspects of TFC(for very obvious reasons):
