Just create them, license them, then upload them. If you plan on selling a game, that's a different story.

1) create the maps
2) test it
3) put all necessary files in a zip -> packaging example
4) make some screenshots
5) use a filehoster or skip to step 6 (if you upload it here)
6) Create a new topic here -> description,screenshots,download,license (e.g. CC-BY 3.0)

You will need to make a zip, which includes your map and the mapname-art.cfg (you can found them in packages/base/gamemode) + eventually new art.
You can use for example 7zip for this.

Oh and how do you do the ones in Bold and Underlined?!?!


When you post a topic/reply you can see some symbols on the top. In the top left corner are the ones you want.

It's tidy. A zip file keeps all the files together and compresses them to save space and make it easier to move them (upload and download).

You don't need 7zip for this but it's recommended. You could just right click the map files, go over "send to" and click on compressed zip folder (this is on Windows 7, I don't know about xp)
