I'm curious as to how many of you start drawing the initial layouts for your maps since I've hit a snag with my super-top-secret project (the only thing you know about it is that it'll probably never be finished, like all my other maps). :sleep: Anyway, I was wondering what you guys do. Do you just "go with it" and start sketching out random paths? Do you start with a silhouette of your map's playable area and then fill it in? Do you imagine one "landmark" or other part of the map in your head and then draw off of and around that? Or are you one of those people who has everything they want already in their head, plain and simple. I usually (this is when conceptualizing environment) get a "still image" in my head of something in my map. A certain control point, a secret passage, even the spawn rooms. Then I start drawing off of that, imagining what would go well around this one image.
