First off you need to understand that you need to use two things to make a map, 1 = TGE for making the terrain and placing objects and then once you have made the map 2 = Modwiz for placing spawn points arrows, pads, ammo gates and powerups.

See this thread from Triv who gives a good explanation on map making: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5361

And also this one from Rooster: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4267

To place shapes in TGE, go to the window menu on the top bar and select World Editor Creator or press F4

In the box that appears in the lower right of the screen click the + next to static shapes
next click the +game (NEVER CLICK DEMO!!!)
then +data
then +shapes - you are now in the shapes folder select and place shapes, rocks, trees etc from here

To rotate shapes hold ALT while pulling on the xyz axis of a shape.

Also download and read the TGE user guide, only takes about 45 mins and worth every minute, download here: http://www.box.net/shared/static/lr3yo4hzfc.zip

Your server copy and your playing copy don't match... figure out which one is wrong, throw it out, replace it with the right one, then try again.
