    Hey all I want to make a jump movie maybe 2-3 min long with good looking custom maps that are not so mainstream.

    So can you guys suggest good looking custom maps (plz provide dl link for your suggestions if you can)? Also try to pick ones that you can do good jumps on (i.e. not tiny maps or ones with super low skyboxes). You can ofc plug your own map if you want :D but only 1 map per creator (I'm going to do 1 jump per map)... I want variety. Also I preferably want maps that differ in style from the Valve maps or other well known community maps like gullywash.

    I'll put the map's creator/map name on screen during the clip.

    FYI if you want to see a jump movie I made, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dY_afbXwKB4

    This next movie won't have such edm-y music i think, also...

    thanks

    Plug plug plug. Check my sig.

    There are some fun jumps around the final point and just fyi, the whole "ridge" on the side of the map is open so if you're tricky you could jump behind the building either from the cliff edge to the overhanging deck or vice versa.

    Probably nothing too crazy on the map, but you might find some cool spots if you're creative. Middle has some cool places to connect from, too.

    edit: After watching your video, yes you certainly are tricky. We'd love to see what you could do on our map.

    Hmm for some reason I can't see anyone's sigs. Can you just post a link to your map crash?

    I forgot to mention, if my movie turns out to be alright, it'll go on this channel too: http://www.youtube.com/user/TF2RJweekly which has a decent viewerbase

    I don't really know why, but for some reason signatures are by default disabled for some users. I will look into that. I enabled them for you though.

    Wow alpen is a really neat map. Haven't had a chance to look at crash's.

    Quick jump to give you guys some idea of where I'm goin with it... basically any demo jumps will be air pogo, soldier jumps idk yet.

    Not going to use that jump though cuz it's sloppy and I'm sure I could do something better... I really love that acid pit in particular, might have my jump start or end there.

    btw does anyone know how to either get rid of the round time limit or make it rly large?

    I like to think that cp_vanguard has interesting jumps in it. soly/demo/scouts there's something for everyone

    I'd like to think escarpment (re: my signature) is really pretty, but as someone who doesn't play soldier or demo well, I'm not sure if there are many interesting jumps.

    As someone who is a fan of Escarpment, there are some interesting jumps. The bridge area and the finale are wonderful.
    And it is also really pretty.

    hmm stoneyridge sure is very nice, but I couldn't really come up with some jumps. It's broken into like 3 main sections and I can't really find a way to connect them. They're too small to jump around in by themselves. Same with escarpment. Needs bigger areas to move about in. There's actually a jump movie that features that map already here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MelQSy3xnrE&feature=youtu.be&t=2m17s

    But tbh that jump is really quite easy so... yea that's something I want to avoid. I'll do a pass through the maps again though just to be sure I didn't miss a route or something.

    btw is there a logo for tf2maps.net? I'll stick it in at the end or beginning.

    The one route I can think of for Stoneyridge would be starting somewhere around middle, down into the trench in the middle, under the gap on the left (coming from defense side,) jumping out over the pit and surfing to the balcony ledge with the health on it. Probably still not as long as you are looking for and I'm not sure how possible it is (not a jumper, myself) but maybe a neat idea?
