    I thought I could make a Map using a mine entrance and it turns into an Evil Genius Esque Base, How Would I go About Doing it, What Gamemode Would Work well and Should it be Desert or Alpine?

    You'd use a displacement tunnel type thing at the start. Kind of like an enlarged entrance from offblast.

    Both themes have mines and caves, so either would work. I'd imagine an attack/defend map would make more sense here than a 5cp map, at least if it's one-sided; of course, you could make an entrance to two different caves for both teams.

    Sounds like a A/D dustbowl map with a dustbowl theme.

    I'd imagine some unassuming entrances embedded into a large cliff face, with the interior rooms decked out in industrial/spytech/whatever. Desert vs. Alpine shouldn't matter, since that would affect only the exterior.

    That sounds a lot like a map I'm currently working on.

    My advice is to make your displacement brushes run horizontally, instead of vertically like mine. Otherwise your textures will look really misaligned
