Don't give up. This is a world that you are creating from your imagination for yourself and for others to enjoy. You are bringing a new experience to everyone. What you can make is limited only by the effort you put in. So once again, don't give up!

I gave up, there's just so much stuff in there.

I loved making maps for Napoleonic Wars, the game had an inbuilt editor

PsychoPigeon dont give up

dahn and many of the others are willing to help

I've only just started myself, and it's quite a daunting task, wished i'd seen the thing on locking terrain earlier lol chasing terrain that kept moving when i draged by accident was interesting to say the least - and produced a few well chosen word from me

but with dahn guides and a bit of stcking at it i'm starting to get somewhere

I added another UDK related tutorial. People really need to watch these videos. RO2 uses the UNREAL ENGINE so the UDK tutorials are very useful here. I see many questions asked on the forum with answers that can be found in the UDK tutorials. Take a look at the UDK related tutorials and there are text tutorials and video tutorials. Just pick whichever suits you best and try to get through them all or just try the tutorials that you need.

I have seen/read many of these tutorials so they are great for learning the basics.
