After posting on a WIP I came to realise that there are a lot of rubbish names out there that just spurn custom mapping. Valve is smart. They make suitable and sometimes interesting titles. I will list some bad titles and some good titles and you can work which is good and which is bad. (I mean no offence to the actual maps) 1.Train Basin Flat 2.Redwood 3.Snaketemple 4.Half-Acre 5.Flats 6.Scrapyard 7.Observatory 8.Smog 9.Hoodoo 10.Bigbear 11.Downhill 12.Tribitary 13.Fool's Gold 14.Gydan 15.Jungle 16.Stovepipe Wells These are just some that I found in both the WIP and the maps category (If it's just a codename or whatever for your WIP then I apologize) K, 1. doesn't make any sense whatsoever. 2. is not original but it works and is perfectly fine for a map (be careful with red or blu in the title). 3.,11.,15. and 13. could do with a bit more thinking as they are extremely basic and boring although Fool's Gold as well as 5. could just use an extra clever word (It's more about an object instead of a place). 14. is slightly weird as I have no idea what a gydan is and if it was something like well or granary it might work. 7. is slightly basic, its good to have observatory but it might be too basic for a final name. I don't mind 8. as it describes that landscape and is an original theme (It's in the same cat. as steel). Half-Acre has creativity but doesn't describe the map all that well and could use a bit extra. Scrapyard is fine for an arena title although hard pressed for others (Scrapyard, Lumberyard). 10. was slightly comical at first but then it seemed not so bad a title but it just doesn't desc. the landscape all that well. 12. is suitable and original (falls with well and granary). Now for 16. A great name. Whoever though of it (I think it was Nineaxis) sure did a great job. Even though I have no idea what the title actually means, I can tell it matches a desert or indust. theme. It just sounds very TF2y.
