:P Ah, a nice clean Spam free board, (we'll soon fix that :badass: )

First topic:
What motivates you to make a map???

Do you look at textures and imagine possible scenarios?
Look at old photographs...
Or walk around the town/city looking at architecture...
Or maybe listen to some music?

Post your opinion and share the creativity...

I get ideas from movies, buildings (that exists in reality) and other maps. :)

hmmmm, a psychiatrist would find that fascinating pepper...

Sometimes ideas or rather architecture comes to me in dreams : strange... an example would be the sewers in Subzone > worked out very well I must say

I get my ideas from other games, I just kind of use the general idea, but I don't copy it completely. :nuts:

It just snaps for me.

Out of nowhere and then as I go along, it further develops

Other FPS games, usually mission ones like timesplitters 2 and perfect dark. Also, sometimes, other maps, but I never copy them exactly. And also, films, especially James Bond ones.

For me it always starts with a little map. Just something to show my friends about some functions. Then it grows and grows, gets remade until it's HUGE!!! You should have seen my duke3d maps.

Well, I get the inspiration from riding my bike and thinking "It would be great if in Half Life..."... Before "Half Life" was "Doom Legacy" and before it "Unreal tournament" and before it "Duke Nukem 3d" and before it... "Doom"... I only accomplished something in Doom anyway.
The thing is that I come up with ideas whenever I?m doing something which doesn?t require my attention!!!.
