hi all

hi guys im new to mapping and am finding it both rewarding and frustrating
i must say firstly ill never moan about a map again as i now know the complexity and time these guys put into creating them
im an admin for 2 DODS public servers with a well known uk server provider
although there are hundreds of maps out there DODS is a dying game and i want to keep players interested in our servers
i feel the only way to do this is to give them what they want
im always being asked if ive added any new maps
there are only a handful of guys that still make maps for DODS so thought i would give it a go thinking it cant be that hard
how wrong i was
ive never thought were this map came from or who made it i just played it
these tutorials have been a god send for me (keep up the good tuts)
thanks and hope to be an active part of your community

Howdy, nice to have you with us.
If you haven't already seen them, type 3 has a few dod maps hosted;

Aside from Tophat's and the type 3 tutorials;

http://type3studios.com/civilization/in ... /tutorials

There is also a nice collection (Old as it may be.)over on Half Wit2;
http://www.halfwit-2.com/?page=tutorials

Then I've also made somewhat of a beginner's set of video tutorials. They would be good to watch if your still learning hammer.(Though I've been working on remaking them because I found about a dozen mistakes last time I watched them.)

Re: hi all

Welcome to Type 3!

I don't know if you already know about them, but we are associated with a gaming community (Easy Company) that started out as a DoD:S community, and I think still runs DoD:S servers. You might find some folks eager to test new maps and with some other helpful suggestions there.
