While it's a bad habit to get into - I think it's perfectly healthy to abandon projects when you are new to LD. Just take some concepts/things that you did like about it, and move on. Good move, especially when you realize it may be easier to just recreate the ideas, or create something from scratch.

When I began LD, I would only complete one of every 30 maps, tops. Most maps were experiments of different concepts, and learning how to break the engine lol

im not saying its a bad idea because i did about 15 small maps before i acutally released something but the "lack of interest" is what bothers me, no point in mapping if your interested?

Poor hammer knowledge, mediocre brush design/poor use of brushwork (thin doorways, walls,etc) , general skybox and other screw ups.

I made an nmo with a hotel in it and I'm still so unsatisfied on how I went about designing the hotel. But you learn from it all :P

I think pretty much almost all my maps after 3 years were never finished or never played/experienced by anybody except myself.. I made precinct 84 for left 4 dead, and nms_notld for nmrih are the 2 true maps I can say are finalized and playable.

Good old 2012. The only thing that stopped me from relasing that is my computer and SDK hating me.
