    I just woke up from an interesting dream, a castle town set in a gorge/pit and next to it was a reservoir with a water dragon that gives you berries. It reminded me of Zelda as a parella was next to the monster and the graphics were similar to Ocarina of Time or Skyward Sword.

    Why talk about this dream? Because I dreamt I was a RED sniper and a BLU demoman got me into the water in the first place. While the water had healing properties, a BLU sniper tried to headshot me while I explored the deeper waters. I eventually got out of the water to explore the town area and hunt for the other sniper.

    It isn't the first time I had dreams of custom TF2 maps I don't think exist. I remember a plr/ctf dream I had where the teams were in a maze of underground railways and each team started off at an abandon station with a train that had two carrages, one for entrance, the other to hold the intel. The teams "push" the train by the control room at the engine of the train while tracks can be change by hitting a switch (similar to Half-Life, Chapter 8: On A Rail). Meanwhile Scouts had to explore the entire labyrinth of railway to find the enemy train which, like there own, could be anywhere.

    So, have you ever dreamed of TF2 maps or places not in the game? Ever responded to it by trying to make a map of it once? I remember I tried to make the railway dream ages back but didn't turn out right.

    The shortest dream i ever had was a Rhino charging out of the darkness at me at full speed. I woke up at the instant of impact.

    That dream felt like it took about a quarter of a second.


    I did not manage to make a map out of the rhino unfortunately.

    Huh. I've had Minecraft dreams but never TF2. Which is funny since I've played a lot more TF2 than Minecraft.

    I haven't played Minecraft in ages. I tried making a Halloween adenture for it on MCEdit but could never make the stages right.

    Another weird TF2 dream.

    A CtF map that was not at all symmetrical.

    RED has taken an abandon office building that's mostly destroyed while BLU was right in front of them. RED could easily snipe BLU team, though they had some cover, in a sense this bestows a false sense of confidence as I was playing as a BLU scout and was able to get into the building, kill Demoman take intel and jump out the window.

    Obviously not well balanced map, but since when did my dreams ever make sense?
