In search of english tutorials for Level Editor

Hello stalkers.
I finally have some time to get my hands into XRay SDK 0.7.
I want to build a solid mod for CoP since years, but I was missing time to learn how to handle levels.
I already know how to add models, textures and animations for characters, monsters, play with some config files but the main obstacle for me is levels. (my actual job is 3D/2D artist for a video game company so I have the basics covered).

So I am looking for a tutorial or several tutorials explaining the process of editing, compiling a map in Level Editor, and loading this custom map ingame. If possible in english (or french haha). Just the basics of getting a small level to work would be enough, once I could reproduce the process of going from Level Editor to the game I am fine. Thank you.

Thanks a lot for these links.
Quick question : I have the CoC SDK too, are the maps objects in there compatible with CoP SDK ? I had no issue with characters, played with monsters and humans with no issues but I didn't touch levels.

*.object files are compatible between all (soc, cs, cop) SDK, regardless they are map geometry, static objects, npc/monster modells etc.

*.ogf files are very different case, these are object files with animations converted into ogf files: SOC character modells, and CS/COP character modells are different, CS/COP npc modells have 2 extra bones. Some COP monsters are different too from SOC/CS monsters, because they have very different bone structures.

Thanks again for all that content.
I love Borovos tutorial, I already had that one even if I didn't use it back then. That's probably the first step I will make, follow that one and see where it leads.
