    should i complete the floor plan, then do buildings? or should i do them both at the same time?

    I personally always do floor layout first before anything else. All depends your mapping style.

    well most maps have more than one layer so I make the ground and then add blocks to be building which I then clip the innerds out of then last thing I seal it off with a skybox

    I always do floor layout, then mock up buildings (just to get proportions down). Then when I'm happy, I pick a building or an area and start working it. If I get bored of working on the same thing, I will switch to a different area, and come back later.

    i think im going to divide the map into different parts, then start with the floorplan for each part, then the walls/buildings, then move on to another part :D

    after thinking about it, im going to remake it, it will be different, so it will fit in w/ TF2's gameplay styles

    There is an Edit button on the far right of your post, it will allow you to add what you are thinking into one post.

    No offense at all. But surf maps look so.. horribly horribly awful.

    they will never make it *big* on TF2 because

    1. its stupid.
    2. there is no quality to it, TF2 players expect something more.
