Welcome to the School of Level Design!

where knowledge is power and learning is everything. Here you will learn to know what you're talking about when it comes to mapdesign.

This studio will help teach beginner(or intermediate) mappers to become experts through personal tutorials, professional help, and help from the student's (beginners) other team members. To teach the students, we've set up different methods of teaching, projects, and competitions. Each beginner will learn from an assigned teacher and will receive a project to work on from that teacher.

Projects & Assignments

These will consist of a certain topic (ie. lighting). Each chapter has a write-up available explaining the topic and references to on-site & off-site tutorials and resources related to the subject. Your teacher may also send you their video tutorial (optional for the teacher to do) and anything else that may be beneficial to your learning.

Assignment List

  • CH. 1: Concept Development
  • CH. 2: Brushwork
  • CH. 3: Optimization 1
  • CH. 4: Detailing
  • CH. 5: Lighting
  • CH. 6: Optimization 2
  • CH. 7: Extras

Competitions

Studio competitions would occur bimonthly and are based on what the students have learned to date.

    No level design school in the world will teach you how to have an original idea and to make an astonishing map.It will teach you just to master a software. If you want to be the best ,you have to be passionate about what are you doing. This kind of work must produce pleasure naturally, to be a way of relaxation, otherwise it's a fail before it's even started, and i know what I'm talking about.

    BrainZ has joined up, I'll be helping him out in the weeks to come. More applications are being submitted and we'll try to get to them as soon as we can. Currently only the three staff right now so time is tight.

    Cheers,
