    Hi all

    I'm currently making a new map and I have no idea what to call it.

    It's a PL map based in a gold mining town with strong emphasis on multiple levels of fighting. The aim is to carry the bomb all the way to red mine shaft and drop it down it.

    I don't want to call it something to close to gold rush otherwise people might get a bit mixed up and think that my map is a cheap copy of it with an extra side tunnel.

    So any help in naming would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    the quick and dirty way to get a map name is to decide what theme the map is and google an example
    for a desert/ mining theme, search for the names of old ghost towns
    for alpine search something like mountain villages (haven't actually tried this one)

    I was going to suggest Glory hole, until I googled it. LMAO!

    Anyway, PL_Mineshaft (like Grimes suggested) or

    PL_CoalMine

    PL_BlackLungCity

    PL_LodeTown

    PL_MotherLode

    PL_Placerville (an actual city)

    PL_SumpCity

    For some related vocabulary ideas, check out this pdf.

    Glory hole would be quite a memorable name for the map, if you're going for that.
