    Hi everybody!

    I noticed that most people make sketches for their maps, but often don't post them...

    That's what I want to change with this thread!

    So, as the title says, post the sketches of your maps!





    As example (And because this post would be boring with just the words) here are two sketches of my first map that I haven't named yet, it will be a 5 control point map:

    [​IMG]

    The second one is less detailed, I sketched the main layout in perspective:

    Now, post yours! :)

    Thank you very much! :D

    And the images... Hmm... I think I'll just let Mulder and Scully solve this....


    Edit: I figured it out, the problem was that the filenames had accentuated letters. The strange thing is that it yesterday night it worked perfectly...

    I sketched out a map of a CTF map like 2fort, but without bridges, taking place in a trainyard and also taking place in Wisconsin.

    I'll post it later. Its really cool.

    Holy jeebus lol. My sketches usually amount to crude drawings in my doodle notebook, cuz I have like zero artistic talent. But what's all that stuff at the bottom of the second pic?

    Uhh... Maybe you mean the badly drawn rooms? I haven't decided yet about what should I put here.
    A corridor, or a few separate rooms?
    Oh, and the map will be mirrored at the CP in the bottom of the second picture, and the first picture shows the area behind the big windows in the second pic.


    @joshman
    Finally someones makes a trainyard map! I hope you post your sketches soon! :)


    @Arhurt
    WHOA! That's pretty damn awesome!

    Arthur is insane, lol. He has the most awesome sketches around here, I bet Valve doesn't make as many as him.

    Its based off a drawing a saw in Model Railroader Magazine.
    I'll scan in the sketch later.
    Basically the top floor of each base are the layout of the ones from well, but the spawn is on the top floor.
    The Intel is in the back of the base in place that resembles the huge room from 2fort. (the ones with all those computers.) Theres 3 tracks in the middle, The Far Left and the Far Right ones run the trains from well, and the middle one has a Train car in the middle.

    The Red base is on the Right, and blu on the left.
    I know it doesn't sound very good but a sketch is on the way.

    Pretty much its Well mixed with 2fort and some badlands thrown in.
