[Question] Getting started with map design

  • Age 22
  • Seen Oct 21, 2023
I've had this game idea for a while and I'm wanting to bring it to life. I've heard that it's best to start with something before recruiting others to help, and I was thinking map design could probably be the thing I'm best with. However I don't really know how to get started. What are good tools for map creation, and how do I make a new map rather than edit an existing one?
