    STARCRAFT 2 MAPPING TUTORIALS

    Hey all you map editting whizzes out there!

    Here's the deal, Most of us want to make maps, but lack the knowledge and skill.
    So this is where we need TUTORIALS!

    Unfortunately... I don't have any... But i know that there are people out there with links or even tutorials of there own that we could use.

    So SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE!!! without map creators, there will be NO MAPS!!!

    --------------------
    USAGE
    --------------------

    1. Find a tutorial that you can share
    2. Post a comment that has a link to it in it and a description(no full tutorials in posts please)
    3. Gain +10 Karma :D
    4. I will edit this header so it includes the links to tutorials (so you dont have to scroll ALL THE WAY DOWN (I'm looking at you lazy bums))

    Thanks for helping out,
    Daemonicus :D
    Your friendly neighbourhood map editor
