    Well you could start by looking at maps you like and seeing why they work layout-wise, and maybe pick out a few things you like about them. So if it's a koth map, look at Viaduct's layout and pick out what it is that makes that map work.

    Oh, and if it's layout you mean, then do something cool like a room within a room, or some interesting variation on a multi-storey map

    make a koth map that adds other game elements not usually found in the game mode
    i.e. adding doors that lead to shortcuts to the point that can only be accessed by killing players

    If you're running low on ideas, plop into Hammer and livestream it. It game me incentive to keep mapping and to keep being creative during the 72-Hour Contest.
