V2 Tutorial Series

Tutorials will be updated at that link, and on TopHATTwaffle's Website The first tutorial series was my launching point for getting better as a mapper. Not only did I learn a lot from making it, but I like to think that many others learned something from the series as well. That first series was flawed in that it was unstructured, and lacked quality control. But you may notice that the further you get in the series, the better the quality. An example is the 100th tutorial; it heavily reflects how the V2 series was created. You can view the entire series below. Some of the information in these videos may not be correct, or even work any longer. I attempt to support all of these tutorials, but cannot due to the passage of time. Please watch the V2 series of tutorials up above.
