I made this thread because I was seeking for good tips for making/inventing a good and original (as possible) layout for a map. Because I feel motived and I want to create a map which is going to be good. But the problem is. The layout. I have tried pretty many hours to find a good and original layout. I have played some of the stock, community and these created by you, tf2maps.net members. But in my opinion, all of my layout ideas feel a lot unoriginal and bad to be used/created in/as a map. Yes, I have scribbled layouts but I dislike all of them, because I think they all are unbalanced and unoriginal, compared to the maps I've played. So, anyone got ideas on how I can create a good (and original, if possible) layout?
