    I've noticed that a lot of map makers enjoy snowy maps, my self included. Why do you like snowy maps? Personally it reminds me of winter, my favorite season. I always seem to have more fun on snow maps. For example, coldfront and viaduct are some of my favorite maps in any multiplayer game.

    IMHO it looks ugly as hell and slays my toaster. Screw Barnblitz or Viaduct gimme a Sunshine, Process or Foundry any day. The winter theme is so underdeveloped that it hurts to look at it, they litterally took the Woodlands theme, slapped shitty white displacements everywhere and called it a day, atleast maps like Boundry and Arctic TRY and make it more believable.

    So what started as a simple 'Why do you like snow maps' thread, turned into a map payment...

    We need more bright rainy maps eg. Thunder Mountain (not gloomy like sawmill).

    One that I'd really like to see is a map like Granary. That style looks really good, personally.

    Maybe because it's -30C outside now. So COLD.

    I seriously don't understand using Farenheit as a measurement at all. Literally the only thing it makes sense for is ovens.
