hi tombraidergal, the first thing you gotta ask yourself is: "Am I prepared to spend months by reading a boring 120 page manual?"

if the answer is "no", then you're out of luck. no easy shortcuts, I'm afraid.
if the answer is "yes", you can start by downloading the TRLE (download link is in the FAQ thread at the top) and fully completing the tutorial level in the manual

then, your next step, after learning what the manual has to say, find some resources for your levels, Objects, textures and many other things too. I reccodmend starting your search on TR Search Engine:


Good luck in your own Raider adventure, all things start off small, but gradually gets huge. What i mean is, you will gradually get the hang of it and then you will be able to master it! ;)

Sorry about that.

What Driber said and in my opinion, TRNG is most definately the first step you should take when level building. It's hard getting to grips with all the new updates for it but believe me, it's the way to go. Read George's thread about the updates for it and build the tutorial level in the manuel and you will be on your way to be building more complex missions. Good luck!
