Modding Index | Map Making Tutorials


Hi all, I decided to start making some video tutorials, with voice, and clear time consuming descriptions on how to make maps, from the very start! the first one only shows how to get started by getting your desktop and files in the right order. I will make more than this depending on the response to these first two. Each video I have planned can contain the same detail on exactly how to make a map, from start to finish.


Let me know if this will be needed.

The videos can be seen here from my You tube channel by clicking the link below….
