    Hello! I'm requesting another map today, hopefully I don't get MORE comments saying it's not aloud and people don't do it, but oh well.

    I would like you map makers to try and make a map that is a Giant shed that leads to a mine. A KOTH map. One base is half the shed, the other is the other team's base. And there's a ladder leading down to a dark mine with deep holes you can fall down. The control point is on a pillar near some gold and digging tools. Max players can be anything, like 24 and stuff. Anyway, Hopefully you can do that. If you need anymore information, dont be afraid to leave a comment below and tell me.

    Now, the issue with your last request is that it was ridiculous (map requests are allowed, but generally, they are turned down, due to time constraints)

    This one, just doesn't have enough information. What do you want it to look like visually? can you provide concept art to support detailing? do you have a time scale one when you want it done? Who is the target audience? If you are commissioning a map, you would have to provide payment, can you provide that?

    You can't just request something this big (Though it is a "small" map, if you want a good map, it takes time). without a good reason, documentation and visuals for what you want exactly. It's really a pain for a mapper to take a commission and put 50 hours of work into the map, only to have the person who asked for the commission to say "no, nevermind, don't need it"

    The biggest question of all though is, why not learn Hammer yourself and make the map yourself? That is what we do here, we help people learn to map... Not make maps on demand and per request (well, we do that, but rarely)... We have a wonderful Tutorial section, and the Valve Developer Community Wiki has a lot of great tutorials.

    What he said basically, although I could draw up some concepts for you?
    But yeah, I don't mean to sound tight, but I am low on cash at the moment (always) so maybe give a few more details, would it be payed, etc

    If you could draw up a crude diagram of what you mean, I could take a crack at it.
