    Hey guys, for a little TF2 related project I'm working on, I've got some screenshots of some awesome custom maps that I've come across and using them as backgrounds for the front page, and I was hoping to get a nice collection going and randomly switch between them depending on the hour / day of the week, stuff like that. :)

    So far I've got,
    2 x Cashworks (first blu spawn looking out and from the top of that hill looking down)
    2 x Glacier (B cap looking at the Tower and the C cap)
    1 x Panic (screenshot of the end of the bridge)
    2 x Haarp (the final cap with the desk and the satellite in the background...and something else that I haven't decided yet)
    1 x Premuda (Stage 2 cap 2)

    So, what I'm looking for!
    - Has a unique area / appearance. For example I love the lighting and the CP style in Premuda or the giant pit near in Stage 3 of Panic, they're not something you see in other maps.
    - Preferably not desert themed... most desert maps are usually just brown everywhere, and my site is brown themed... don't think it'd look overly great. :\ Plus everyone is kinda used to them by now.
    - Should preferably be near finished / of high quality. I'm kinda hoping people we see the maps and go "hey, that looks cool" and go off and check out the map, so don't want something thats only 1 / 3 done or plays like crap or has been abandoned.

    I've checked Nightfall and Great Heights, but couldn't find anything screenshot worthy, but I might go over them again later on. I've been going by most views / comments on FPSBanana and here, but perhaps I've missed some good ones. :)


    So I figured who better to ask then the mappers themselves. :p Suggest away. :D

    (I spose I'll just end up with every mapper recommending their maps :p)

    Yeah, plr_Nightfall, stage 3 looks like it could be interesting, but its not textured yet so I'll have to come back to it. :(

    Cheers AlBobo, I'll give furnace a look. :)

    I did a quick search so maybe Icarus changed his mind, but didn't it get abandoned early in its Beta?

    Yeah, tc_meridian is the first map I thought of. Loads of epic screens just waiting to be taken.
