    Oh me and my weird questions. :p
    So how much time do you guys take onto mapping every day, if you do it as a job of course? If you don't do it for a normal job, then what do you do with that spare time? Of course, I don't know what you do in bed, so enlighten me with your answers? :)

    I work on an inspirational basis.

    So, I might expect to get 10 minutes or 8 hours. Depends on what lights the fire under my ass.

    Normally that would be a lighter.

    30 seconds per day, that's why I don't release any maps, ever.

    22 Hours of Mapping, one hour of tears, and one hour of sleep.

    I've never liked working to schedules. I prefer to work on what I want, when I want (which would explain why I'm still unemployed).

    With mapping, I just work for as long as it takes for me to run out of ideas/get bored.

    I usually do stuff about mapping for 6 hours a day. (Investigating other maps, watching demos, mapping) and it doesn't help me.

    Really really depends on the day/ how motivated I am/ how many videos I'm behind on.

    Some days I'll work 8 hours at my day job, then come home and map for 10 hours. Couple hours mixed in there for food/ procrastination, and then sleep for about 4 hours before waking up and potentially doing it again.

    I'll sleep when I'm deeeeaaad!

    2 hours whenever a fortnight.

    It used to be more of a daily basis though. Mon-wednesday work on changes Thursday imp friday-saturday edit sunday gameday, rinse repeat. hour or two a day. I miss those days.

    On my freedays I might spend anywhere from 30 minutes to 6 hours mapping. On days I have school, at most an hour.

    With this mindset you will probably be dead sooner than expected.

    I think everyone expects Crash to die young.

    He's a ~27 year old musician, of course he's going to die soon.

    Usually will work on mapping for as long as possible if I keep thinking of things to do to the map and nothing is around to stop me (school, work, parents calling me, friends).

    However I get confused on what else to do and it usually leads to long periods of doing nothing. :p

    Mapping for me is more of a hobby than a task. I usually take 2-3 hours per week. Most of that time is creating ideas for a single map.
