Will2k started playing games as a kid in the mid 80s beginning with Pacman in Arcades. He was bit by the mod bug in 1998 after playing Half-Life and Delta Force and was hooked on level design ever since.
Throughout these 17 years, he created levels for many engines/games and knows "a thing or two" about level design, but keeps learning new things everyday in a continuous process.

Hi Will! So I got a question and I hope you can help me. It's about the ingame radar, so I have no idea how to make a "good looking" radar, mine looks like this http://files.gamebanana.com/img/ss/maps/56254b156b8a3.jpg and you might know that this is not good looking, so how to make a radar like this http://files.gamebanana.com/img/ss/maps/561125e44604c.jpg ?
You know, there was a mapper that uploaded a few maps a lot of time ago (1 year maybe?), and in his submission's credits he always used his previous alias rather than his current username, which got his submissions flagged (they still are up). I also remember you posting in one of his submissions saying you'd ask him to change the credits to his current username.
This user made a good map I want to download again but I can't find him. Do you remember him? I reviewed and got an EF on that map, for reference. It was an big map that had a big river going across the whole level with some broken ships, hills, great wood houses and stuff.
EDIT: Nevermind, found him, it was Boostturbo, always crediting himself as 7up\_rus. Looks like I'll be able to enjoy awp\_priroda once again, heheh.
