    Hey everyone.

    I know it's kinda lame to start a thread without content but before starting to work on this thing I'd like to have a good map layout to build the map around.
    The theme would be a typical toy factory with rails and toy coming out of weird machinery. The main goal of this project is too finish a cool map before the VALVe's event start so people can enjoy it on Christmass themed map.

    You may doubt about what I'm able to do so if that's the case, check out my other works :

    http://dttcorp.fr/watchtf/
    http://dttcorp.fr/laevateinspy/
    http://dttcorp.fr/tokamak/

    Etc.

    Also if you're more confident with hammer than paper or drawing, you can build a layout out of brush too.

    I hope some of you will have some idea for it/the will to. :3

    I already started to work on a dedicated payload :

    Sorry to break it to you, but there is no way anyone can get good layout, custom theme and fully detailed map done by the time Christmas update, but that doesn't mean you should scrap this project.

    That payload cart looks pretty damn cool.

    Well I know it will be hard to get something in time (not to say impossible) but that's mainly why I ask someone who made a layout or someone who accept to share the layout of another map for this. It would allow me to only work on the graphical issue and maybe (with all my hopes) success.

    I think you got my point :3 (I don't want to seem pretentious).

    I would really like to make a layout for you. But I am still a beginner and you are a really good model artist. Your work is pretty awsome. Just send me a PM if you want my help.

    I'm not gonna lie: even with a finished layout, getting it done for christmas will be tricky. Look at the Artpass contest: that took way more than 1 month. And if you want it to achieve popularity by christmas, you're looking at about 2-3 weeks to detail a complete map. Including creating a theme.

    Nobody has ever done this.

    Best of british luck, but, i'd not be hopeful.

    You and swordfish are overly pessimistic, me and Rexy did the majority of Manor in the last 2-3 weeks crunch of the artpass contest.

    The best route would be to re-theme a map that's already started. It would only take a week to gut an existing map and scatter new elements in. This would also give me a perfect opportunity (excuse) to work on Haste's layout

    And as such, I'm highly tempted, highly.

    What do you think of this Cbast? I submit to you a pretty much completed map and propose a re-theme: http://www.subtleallusion.com/#haste

    If by 'giving out', you mean 'offering to work on it in collaboration' then yes.

    Wait, what? I was not informed of this! I thought you had just been hush-hush about it for the whole first month and a half. Are you a wizard?

    ...Apparently you are.

    Yaay, teamwork! If you need anyone to stand on the sidelines and shout encouraging things while also pointing out every single minor flaw, call me. I promise it doesn't get annoying at all.
