    I don't know if this has been done before but the search turned up nothing. Every forum has to have one of these.

    ...You see a shadow on the floor thats blurry and think you need to turn down the lightmap scale. (Guilty)

    ...You think that you can't make a concave brush in any other program (guilty)

    ...You fall asleep thinking of ideas for new gamemodes/maps. (guilty)

    You wonder what particle settings make that neat sprinkler effect on your lawn.
    You doodle map ideas during meetings at work. (OK, maybe that's not too much.)
    You see a texture misalingment in a wood floor. Wait, that's a real material boundary...
    You wonder what your house's internal visleaves would look like.

    You're doing work around the house and catch yourself thinking "damn this would be so much easier if I just had *insert name of hammer tool here*"

    When you trip up and shake your fist because no one clipped that step.
    When your mum comes into your the room in the morning and you wonder why your func_respawn_visualiser isn't working.

    You start looking at things various pieces of geometry in real life and wonder if they're func_detail's.

    You start looking at interesting things and start wondering how you can recreate it in hammer.

    When you look at a building and wonder how they managed to optimise it.
    When we need another thread like this (There is one... somewhere)

    I was sitting at a small table with a faint check board pattern under a wood style texture. My first thought was "Wow someone forgot the cubemaps" quickly followed by "Wow I am such a nerd. I should post this on TF2Maps":blushing:
