What do you want in a map?
« on: June 26, 2006, 02:12:24 pm »
Hi all, to give me and everyone who makes maps some ideas, post your ideas in on here :P.

I like
- Ice, as well as dry land
- cover
- death traps
- buildings(sniper from)
FEAR - fear is not to be feared - fear is edge - fear keeps you on your toes - fear keeps one eye open when you sleep - fear adds caution to courage - conquer fear and fear is not your foe, its your friend.

I'm addicted to jungle warfare, having to get the timing just right as you jump from cover to cover, lots of scenery, good flanking positions, sniping positions, and a realistic-looking setting.

Anything that plays, feels and looks good.

I mostly like R/S maps (low jets, structures, lotsa cover...)

i like small houe like settings, make walls just a tad smaller than the soldat gostek. and they can be set in any enviromnent. i also like the maps not to have definate ceilings and no outside barriars, just make sides of map something like a mountain that is too hard to get up all the way or  a city building, or something. and remember, make gameplay great first, then make the map look sexy.

I like hidden deathtraps, bloody spikes on the ceiling, hooks hanging from the ceiling, buildings with rooms where you can actually be, sandy arabic style buildings with wells and shitholes which lead into the same shithole, I like to see water in a map and then instead of sand maybe some grass and trees. I wanna see everything in a map.
