    I live... again.

    I'm starting from the beginning here. The whole ugly process of creating a map will be exposed publicly. Feedback at every stage of the process is welcome no matter how early.

    Thanks!

    That's the starting point. Shooting for better.


    I'd like to have the full dev cycle up here through its phases. Unless this is only for finished maps. In which case where can I iterate and get feedback on my map as it goes?

    Maybe toss up all the stuff your making into a single plane with a skybox so we can see whats up. If you want to post stuff in increments...

    You can get the full dev cycle here ;)

    You should probably hold off putting all those fancy doorways in until you've got the layout going unless they're prefabs.

    Looks nice, but it's not the looks that count... well not entirely anyway, make sure you've got a good layout.

    Anyway, i'll keep my eye on this one

    Very glad to see you working on an original custom map with this theme, Whark. Now at least you won't be forcing your architecture into a pre-designed map, you can build the two side by side.

    Looking forward to seeing how this one progresses!

    I've just been mucking about in the tools blocking out geometry so I decided to make a few instances of things that I used alot in my Artpass entry and never took the time to make modular. The first of which starts here.

    Chemical Alia and I have been going back and forth with some paintovers and studies as well. Hope to have some progress posted on that soon.

    A trading map, amirite? Dohohoho.

    Seriously, I'm eager to see what you do with this theme, too, now that you don't have the pressure of meeting a contest deadline with it. :)
