I assume you are talking about levels for a FPS type engine (indoor portal/BSP).

Writing a level editor for this type of game is a massive amount of work. I would advise against that if you want to get anything finished.

Look for a good freeware or shareware MAP(quake engine) editor. Worldcraft is a good MAP editor. Q3Radiant/GTKRadiant are awsome level editors, however i am pretty sure you cant profit from levels make with quake3 tools (without paying ID some cash). The level formats themselves are fine to use IIRC.

The primary reason for sticking with the MAP format is the massive online editing community. Textures/tutorials etc are easy to find.

It is possible to use 3DSMAX for this, but i cant afford that (and i dont really like it).
