      Unreal is very confusing to a newb mapper

      Unreal is extremely confusing to a QE mapper

      You should google around for Unreal Mapping TUTs
      As a note, if you have ever mapped for a Quake Engine, or Source, don't try to apply your knowldge of that into unreal, because you will fail. Compared to those, unreal is completely backwards and twisted. Instead of building the world up from the "void", you have to create a huge block of "everythingness" and subtract what you want to do from the everythingness, also you do this using CSG, rather than simply directly placing brushes as BSP, and have to use staticmeshes to add detail, rather than building that out of BSP also.

      If you are serious about mapping, http://www.map-center.com/ may aid you in your endeavours.

        Yeah I found the HL editor easy to map in - so nice to make maps in with little knowledge. UT editor is hard and I couldn't be bothered.

          I actually found UEd easier than any of the quake engine editors. I just find it more obvious to carve a space for a room than build 6 walls. *shrug*

            I've got a fix for the router problem: buy a new one.

              Yes, prepare to be completely dazed at the terror that is UED. Unfortunately, if you're asking for help on this board, yo'ure off to a horrid start. I mean, there IS a public Wiki link at the top of every page...

                Im sure it means Initialise(as in start)
                Meaning that it cant actaully open UED.

                  Think you might have switched HL and UT around there.

                    UnrealEd is really confusing when you 1st use it. I had no idea how to move actors around. But once i understood the basics of moving things around it all became clear =)
                    The best thing about unrealed is that its just 1 app. no need to worry about your lighting and bsp programs or whatever
                    ..it's safer here.

                      Nope I found HL editor easy to work with (after a few basics were shown by a friend) but I don't understand the UT editor.

                        Personally, I think the Starcraft editor is easiest editor to use.

                          No way! The Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos Editor is the best!

                            But will it help make maps for Thievery, and is it free?

                              if you have thievery you have the thievery editor, its in start menu next to the thievery button, "thievery unrealed" with the green button, will it help? well you cannot map without it so yeah i guess it does.

                                Okay. Thanks for the links. But my problem is that I got the game in a zip folder, and didn't install it. I just extracted the folder. Where can I get it to install it?
