    Fairytale Theme

    This may be slightly off topic:
    I recall seeing Yahtzee Croshaw's review of the Orange Box a long time ago.
    I recall him calling out TF2 on its lack of map enviroment variety describing it as Industrial Environment, Desert Enviroment or Urban Industrial Desert Enviroment.

    I was thinking with the new Swamp-etition (Swamp+Competition=I'm not very funny) of what would be other cool themes for Tf2. I thought of the cartoony nature of Tf2 and had what I think may be a very good idea.

    Imagine a scout and a soldier charging through a fairytale grove. The scout jumping carelessly over a majest-slain unicorn. The soldier taking a quick glance at a cartoon like tree, with a two person longsaw halfway through it. Ammopacks strewn among fairy rings (Mushroom Circles). A sentry or two being sapped on a Happily-Never-After Keep.

    Being a mediocre mapper at best and with my first Tf2 map on my plate I can't really move forward on this idea. I would assume creating this theme would involve making new textures, models and more. But for anyone who is up for an interesting challenge here's the idea :)

    Anyone have any comments or input?

    That would be really cool. In fact, having played WoW and TF2, I've wondered what it would be like to have a theme that mashes up the two.

    I think a nice way of putting it would be dropping the cast of Tf2 into one of the night elf zones or into a children's book...
