Well, not exactly a tutorial but a starting point for newbies.
These maps were originally posted for someone who requested help with a castle map. He had a great Idea for a game but was new to DJ and didn't know where to start. He provided a picture of Bodiam Castle and I designed the map from that using the specifics he needed for his game. The original maps and larger zips can be found in that post as well as my first attempt which was more of a home than the fort he was looking for. Click Here for Original Post

In this post I am giving you the .dja files and a few tips.
There are 3 floors to these maps.
The First floor was going to be used the most in his game so I put more detail into it than the others. the 2nd & 3rd floors are just the shell.
Most people don't post the dja files anymore because there is so much user art and we all have different directory structures so if you open someone else's dja you just get alot of blank boxes. With that in mind, I did these maps so you could play with them more yourself.
The first floor was done before that concept came up so it does have a lot of user art, but the basic structure is all DJ art. the 2nd floor is 85% DJ and the Third floor is 95% DJ.
So, Look at the original maps I did, Load my dja files and play with them. Add your own pieces, put a balista on the turret, put furniture in the bedrooms.
Learn by doing, thats how I did.
