    Time for me to make a thread now. Been working on it since day 1 so I should probably show some progress. Mine is a swamp themed map, based around RED's sewege cleaning facility. So, here are some screenies:

    Love your 9th image.

    Your wood work is kinda blocky though. The roof panels should extend a little further from the buildings walls. No need to be too reserved when it comes to experimenting with TF2's warped art style.

    Probably my fav room in the whole map so far. The roof panels I think will need to be thinner as well. Most of the woodwork isn't finished, the inside of the building opposite BLU spawn is pretty much done, but I will need to add supports outside.

    FYI, in the 9th pic, I have moved the health and ammo to the lower level, not sure if this is allowed so if not, please tell me and I will move it back. I just feel it looks better down there.

    Agreed. I've been trying to figure out what on earth I'm going to do with that room. Gah.

    Update, progress being a little slow recently, starting to run out of ideas.

    Updated screenies in OP. I've been working in and around point C, adding supports in rooms, more detail in spawn etc. I've also added wooden beams to the buildings around B and added a little more detail around the area, didn't get a screenshot however, forgot I had done them. (Will try and add one later) Also started work on a basic 3dsky, images would be pointless though as of now, as I said it's only basic.

    I know what you mean. I've not done anything with red spawn at all, and have only recently given any textures to the area at all.

    And I've still got the whole surrounding area to do.

    Gah. x..x

    Though I keep looking at what other people are doing and seeing if I can find some inspiration. Sometimes what one person does in one area can help me in another. I'd forgotten about spotlight_beams until I saw a screenshot with some: it really helps make an area look foggy!

    I do like what you've done around point A headed towards B: turning that ledge into a (partial?) cave like that.

    More pics in OP showing off the work around B.

    Sorry for bad screenshots, but I'm going away for a bit, and plan on using the screenshots to do some paintovers. Hopefully I can get some inspiration and ideas while I'm away.

    Oh love the updates. The texture on the walls near C is very good. I also like how you handled that odd building near B by connecting it to a mostly skybox structure.

    More pics in OP. Sorry that some of them don't really show off anything new. Main things are the 3D skybox around B and more detail in the rooms around C. I think the next major thing I will need to work on is the lighting, as you can tell, I haven't touched them yet.

    The map itself looks great, but the atmosphere doesn't match with the map... I think the map should be a bit green-ish and foggy, and maybe even a bit dark.
    Keep up the great work

    As I said, haven't touched the lighting yet. It's gonna be a fair few compiles with small ambient changes over the next few days methinks :) In some areas the map seems fairly foggy, such as the 4th image, but then everywhere else its not foggy at all.

    Take a look at 2 Fort. I'd bet you didn't know they had 6 different fogs. :)

    I'm starting to get a little bored with this map :( Not sure where the work really needs to be now, some areas of the 3d skybox still to do but I don't like that area :(

    Started some work on the lighting, it's also much more green now :p Click image for larger pic.

    Architecturally and detail wise things seem to be shaping up well, but yes, that outdoor lighting appears kind of sickly to me. Like the map itself has been zombified or something.
