So I am really trying to get my preliminary sketches for my Quake 2 unit finished, and based on the types of maps I am making I am trying to find reference images for inspiration. At the moment I am trying to come up with some cool ideas for a smelting plant, and have been google'ing/youtube-ing every kind of smelting plant info I can find to trigger something awesome in terms of an idea. I also have some really old screenshots of areas I made that would perfectly suit a smelting plant map.
Trouble is I just need to try and make the map into a logical and awesome layout. IDK. I just wanna know what you guys do when you have a serious case of 'Mappers Block'?
Also I was gonna put my pipe prefabs up on here for download. They're all contained in one .map file for ease of use. Who's keen? The pipes are like the ones from the Small Pile of Gibbs map, the really good single player one, with 12 sided pipes in various configurations.
I forgot what else I was going to ask. I just really want the maps in my unit to look awesome. The Perfectionist in me is strong, and he's beginning to piss me off! haha.
Let your mind’s eye go to work here...check out some H. R. Geiger or H. P. Lovecraft for some inspirational reading. Trust me...your mind can imagine more disturbing and wonderful things than imagery ever could. Good luck!
