I've been developing a KF2 map for the past year working on it off and on for months. I don't call myself a professional map maker or even a good one at that,(Unreal development kit) UDK is the editor i used to make this map, I'm still learning a lot new techniques from SDK,KF2 communities forums and each time I develop my map. Highly recommend you to try mapping with UDK if you don't already :)!
