I am a level designer for the Source engine. I am currently working on a couple of mods, including the remake Black Ops:Source. Since I have been working with the Source engine for about 3 years now, I know most of the tricks and loopholes of level design. If you have any problems with hammer, let me know and I'll do my best to help you out.
No blog entries have been posted here. Boring yes, but as confucius says - if you have nothing good to say, why say anything at all? Check back later, perhaps something exciting will pop-up and be worth blogging about, like season 3 of the teletubbies.
Speak your mind, rant about games, mods and the development scene, it's simple and who knows maybe someone will read it and agree. It will feel right!
